Welcome to Chennai Garden by Tiffin Wallah
At this present time, we have replaced our lunch buffet with an array of Lunch Specials, and have added outdoor seating for our dine-in guests.
Since 2001, we’ve been serving authentic kosher and vegetarian North and South Indian cuisine.
Our owner Peter decided to open Chennai Garden Restaurant with one goal in mind: to bring North and South Indian cuisine to New York City. We merged with Tiffin Wallah Restaurant in 2007 and that’s how Chennai Garden by Tiffin Wallah was created!
We’re the only vegetarian restaurant that serves a buffet (currently unavailable due to COVID) in our neighborhood. Available for outdoor dine-in, takeout, and catering, our menu is packed with authentic dishes that will transport you to India one bite at a time.
Stop by and try our shareable appetizers, robust, gluten-free curries, or our crisp and flaky dosa — all vegetarian and all kosher. We can’t wait to share our favorite Indian food with you.
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 the work place and has evovled into an amazing lunch delivery system in India.
We are bringing this concept to New York City – delicious vegetarian South and North Indian dishes delivered fresh to your home. Currently delivering 10 blocks radius.
