Dear friends,

It is with great regret and a heavy heart that I have to announce the temporary closure of Tiffins.

Due to the stresses and strains of recent past events and following the death of my husband, and the ongoing challenges of running a business singlehandedly, I have made this very painful decision.

I have spent months deliberating many other options to avoid closure, but sadly, in the end, I do not have any other options but to close. Our last day of business is Saturday 28th October.

I hope when I get some much-needed rest and time to reflect, that I will come up with a more easy and manageable business option.

Since opening Tiffins in 2003, I have thoroughly enjoyed cooking, which is one of my passions and serving authentic regional Indian food.

I would like to thank each and every one of my Tiffins team past and present, without whose help I wouldn’t be able to cook in the first place! I am very much grateful for their time, commitment, enthusiasm and their invaluable help to the business and myself.

To all my loyal customers I would like to thank you for supporting me for the past 15 years, without which I wouldn’t have sustained this long. Thank you also to all those customers who also helped me personally in the recent months and has always been there for me. I will forever be in your debts.

I would also like to thank food critic and journalist Mark Taylor, for the many unbiased and very complimentary articles about Tiffins. As a local unique independent business it has been a tremendous help and has been invaluable in making us famous far and wide.

Tiffins first ever article was published in Venue magazine and the reporter Simon Fry ended the article by saying ‘this place doesn’t have customers, it has friends’. And this sums up my feelings too.

I appreciate your patience during this time and would like to urge you to check the website and Facebook for further updates.

Best wishes
Jay Jethwa
