Tiffinbites, EC2V 7PG

This was an Indian restaurant in the City, part of a small chain. However, as of May 2011, Good For Lunch reports that it's closed "until further notice".

Indian restaurant in the City, part of a small chain. They also have branches in Moorgate (Tiffinbites, EC2Y 9AA), Canary Wharf, and Liverpool Street.

MinnesotaGirl and boyfriend visited on a Wednesday night. It was very busy when we arrived. Although Tiffinbites has a full bar, we both opted for the non-alcoholic Mango Lassi, a sinfully delicious yoghurt and alfonso mango concoction.

The waitstaff were friendly and service was prompt even though the place was pretty busy. We also liked the presentation of our food in tiffin tins, similar to the small metal tins that are used to serve food in India.

I ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala, which was served with fresh naan, side salad and pilau rice. Being an animal advocate, I was pleased to learn that all the chicken served at Tiffinbites is free range. The Chicken Tikka Masala was tender and delicious, and had the perfect balance of sweetness and spiciness.

My boyfriend ordered the Boti Kebab, a kebab with boneless pieces of lamb marinated in Indian herbs and spices and cooked in the tandoor. He said that the lamb was exceptionally tender and beautifully spiced.

We also shared the Aloo Tikki Chaat; crisp potato patties topped with spiced chickpeas, tamarind chutney, mint chutney and thick yoghurt. They were very refreshing and delicious!

Our total bill was only £26, an amazing deal for a starter, two mains and beverages in the City! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for delicious and reasonably-priced Indian food in fashionable surroundings.
