Tiffin is actually an old English word for a light meal, and eventually became the name for a multi-compartment metal lunch box. Tiffin Wallah, in India translates as "one who carries the box" Tiffin Wallahs originated over a century ago to bring tasty Indian food to work place and have evolved into an amazing lunch delivery system in India. We are bringing the concept to NYC. Delicious vegetarian South Indian dishes delivered fresh to your table. Currently delivering in Murray Hill area.
