Coronavirus –  COVID 19  

We would like to wholeheartedly thank the hard working NHS team and everyone working hard for the sake of others, we appreciate you all very much.  

Tiffins story began in 2003. Disappointed by the lack of real and authentic Indian restaurants and takeaways in Bristol, my husband Nick ( who sadly passed away in 2017 ) and I decided to open Tiffins. I was  born and brought up in Gujarat – the North west state in India,-  Gujarat has the highest strict vegetarian population in India. I have been extremely fortunate to have  grown up with and learned from  extremely talented and passionate cooks in my family, who never ever wasted any food and could cook a delicious and nutritional vegetarian meal from a hand full of ingredients or from leftovers.

I grew up with a very holistic relationship with food. In my family the food we ate was based on the ancient principals of Ayurveda, where food is treated like  medicine, to keep the body strong and healthy. So we only ate seasonal and very locally produced food.

So I wanted to implement the knowledge and  understanding of  what I was brought up with and what we ate at home, in Tiffins. I wanted to cook exactly how I cooked at home,  authentic, wholesome and nutritional vegetarian food.

Fast forward to 2021  with the support of my new partner Ben, family, friends  and  continuous loyal customer support, we are still- we believe – the only Authentic regional Indian take-away selling the most varieties of Gluten free and vegan curries – 10 different frozen vegetarian curries –  of which 9 are vegan and of course our famous Coriander, coconut and chilli chutney and Date and tamarind chutney,  in the whole of the South West region.

Not to waste food and being as sustainable as possible has been imbedded in me since a child, so we apply the same principals in Tiffins. With customer demand and incredible loyal support from customers, family and friends we are  planning to make some changes to Tiffins. We are look into using surplus vegetables and fruits to use in our curries, sauces, and chutneys, as well as help deal with food poverty. We will also be resuming our cooking demonstrations soon –  so watch this space !!!

 We are open for takeaway on –

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday,  – from 10am till 5pm.
