New place, 1824 Callowhill, favorably reviewed today in the Philly Daily News. Anyone been?
Yep. It's definitely no Tiffin, but it's not bad. If I lived in the neighborhood and wanted to have Indian but didn't want to drive to Tiffin, I'd go back. We had a little problem with the service but it was their first week in business and they sort of comped us an entree, so no problem.
ekta kicks @ss. just went there last night. my sister thinks it is better than tiffin, i think that they are neck and neck, HOWEVER, their masaladar chala dish is off the charts good. i've never had a meal at tiffin that was so holy crap, perfection! though i have always raved about tiffin too....
I got delivery from here last week - very good and quick delivery. I had samosa that came with 2 chutneys and the "red onions", garlic naan - perfectly done and wrapped, felt like i was eating it fresh in the restaurant, and a chicken dish that i can't remember the name but red spicy sauce with onions, peppers and indian pickle mixed in - i believe it was called chicken achari...I've never been to Tiffin but I have had alot of indian food and this was pretty good for my standards.
Special note on the delivery - I was quoted 30-40 minutes - the delivery man got there in 35 minutes and apologized for being late - I thought that was really nice considering he wasn't late at all!
