Tiffin’s – Fast Food Indian Cafe in Boulder, Colorado

We went to Boulder a couple weeks ago to try out a new Indian fast food cafe called Tiffin’s- this place is 100% family owned and operated and for me, a taste of my mom’s homemade cooking- no restaurant fluff here!  We know the owners but that did not influence me- I am a foodie at heart and do consumer reviews all the time.  And if you doubt me, check out reviews on yelp and just in case I was biased, I took a friend along who has an amazing Indian Food blog – all things indian food and she is @indianfoodrocks. She also wrote an amazing review on Yelp – check out all the reviews before you head in and decide for yourself. I think it’s time Boulder got a fast food, reasonably-priced cafe with home cooking like this- it has been a long time coming! So, put on your walking shoes, or ride a bike and if you live far away, feel free to drive on in to Buff country – the corner of Arapahoe and Folsom and check out Tiffin’s extensive menu.

For Indians and all Indian-food lovers, I think it is great to get snack places like this one because they are far and few between .  You can get a variety of foods without being locked into heavy creams, or large portions of just one dish and buffets are just too much! The place is simple, cafeteria-like but you can get channa masala with whole wheat bread like mom makes & South Indian fare.  The daal soups are a must try and of course, kids’ favorite are idlis & dosas straight up! There are plenty of homemade dessert options too and mango lassi that will complement any meal and fill you up too! 

Masala Dosa - can you say CRUNCH?

Pav Bhaji and Bhel is traditional Indian street fare but there’s no need to travel to India when you can get your fix in Boulder, so, check out Tiffin’s and give the small, family-owned business a try – I love that you can get a variety here and leave wanting more….

  1. Hi,

    Since you enjoy Indian food, I wanted to let you know about a new Indian restaurant that opened recently in Boulder. It is Curry n Kebob, and over the years I’ve become good friends with the owner Zuned Khan (former owner of Maharaja in Boulder and Louisville) and I volunteered to help him get the word out on the net.

    The restaurant opened at the end of February, and I’ve been so happy for Zuned for the wonderful reception he has gotten so far (4 1/2 star rating on 9 reviews on Yelp, and 5 star rating on 11 reviews on his Google Places page). People seem to really like that it is a small, cozy place that really takes pride in its food and has low prices. All food is made to order and they are vegan friendly and the entrees are all gluten free.

    I hope you will give it a try — you can see the menu at http://www.currynkebob.com

    Thanks, David

  2. I went back a few days later with my friend Ellie and plan to go again soon! I’ve been sending all my friends there and they’ve come away really happy! Jatin gave them several samples of the other dishes on the menu and they have all pledged to go back again and again!
