I was invited for the grand opening of Tiffin Box etc third outlet in Saki Naka, Mumbai. Luckily I was in that part of the city so decided to attend the event. Don’t get confused by the name ‘TiffinBox’, this place has much more to offer. The idea behind the name ‘TiffinBox etc’ as explained by Mr. Ashwani Basantani, Brand Head is that the working class should not bring their tiffin boxes with them as they offer a big grand lunch buffet which includes the regional Indian specialties from four metropolitan cities namely Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkatta. One can also enjoy the A-la-Carte option with families and friends. They are also launching new website www.tiffinboxetc.com for online orders and payments.
Ambience: The restaurant has 104-seats at Sakinaka and exhibits a contemporary ambience, which makes you feel comfortable in its casual setting and vibe.
Food: The restaurant offers a scrumptious buffet at an introductory price of INR 399 (all inclusive) during lunch. The restaurant’s signature menu includes both an extensive vegetarian & non- vegetarian dishes. The items I tried from their buffet spread:
AamPanna: The refreshing aampanna had a homely taste with a perfecty balanced taste of sweet and sour. The much-needed drink after travelling in summers.
Appetizers: After totally getting confused from where to begin with as the spread was really huge I decided to start with appetizers. I tried mini samosa, glaouti kebabs, chana dal kebabs and mushroom tandoori. All the items very tasted good. I tried murg dahi bhalla which was an interesting twist to the normal dahi bhalla we usually have. The buffet had the various variant of veg and non-veg curries from different regional specialities.
Service: Service was fast and the staff was courteous. They were ensuring to provide the best of service.
Overall a new good addition to the list of restaurants in SakiNaka. This new outlet has a Bar too that will enhance your dining experience.
Note: Pictures used in the post are mainly provided by the TiffinBox etc, few clicks are mine.
My overall rating is: 4/5
My opinion and words are not biased and the review is totally based on my experience at the restaurant. But rightly said, “Food is subjective and everyone has own taste” so kindly exercise your own discretion, with the understanding that this is reviewer’s personal opinion.
