If Punjab Grill looks too modern for your old-fashioned yet sophisticated taste, then you might find Tiffin Room’s colonial flair your cup of tea. Known for its wide array of North Indian and English dishes, Tiffin Room will turn your ordinary midday to an extravagant one with their exquisite high tea service.
Indian Buffet Style: The buffet table showcases a large selection of North Indian dishes ranging from starters, main course, desserts to drinks. There’s buffet during lunch and dinner and Tiffin Room does rotate its menu frequently to allow guests to have a taste on a wide variety of traditional Indian dishes like curries, chutneys, naans, and kebabs.
Interesting salad dishes: The salads section of the buffet table looks very promising for any curious foodie. The featured dish is Beetroot Coconut ka Salad, made of beetroot chunks and fresh curry leaves drizzled with desiccated coconut, a unique food combination.
Extensive veg and non-veg curry menu: Eat curry to your heart’s content! From lamb, prawn, chicken to vegetarian curries, you will find your sweet spot in Tiffin Room. Chicken Makhanwala offers a good start for its juicy and tender meat soaked in thick tomato paste, fenugreek, and butter. Make sure to pair it with a hot naan. For strictly vegetarian dieters, curries like Khate Methe Baigan and mixed veggies might catch your attention.
Spiciness is toned-down: If you prefer mild flavours, you might find Tiffin’s rather bland taste on some of its Indian dishes favourable. Understandably though, Tiffin Room is visited by westerners mostly which makes the restaurant perfect for tourists who just want to have a taste of Indian cuisine in the most tolerable way possible.
Party like it’s the 1890’s: Being Raffles Hotel’s main dining hall, Tiffin Room has a long history that dates back to 1899 when curry was first served in the room. Celebrating your special occasions here would mean being a part of the hotel’s historicity. Imagine being surrounded by Indian food, polished cutleries, lamps, formal English dining setting, Indian waiters-in-white, and a harpist playing in the background as you go merry-making in a private dining room.
The menu is extensive encompassing breakfast, afternoon tea to lunch and dinner. A menu specially crafted for vegetarians and fans of Thali are also available. Customers of all ages will definitely love being spoilt for choices as they can go flexible with their Indian food adventure, although they’d have to deepen their pockets. Price starts at S$50 per adult and S$30 for children.
Tiffin Room is a large banquet hall adorned with elegant colonial motifs. There’s enough space for the whole family and the room is designed to let the natural light pass through the windows which adds drama to the already cinematic montage. The staff is attentive and cordial to both hotel guests and non-guests. Overall, the ambiance is refreshing, regal and perfect for an intimate fine dining.
