An Enticing Combination of Indian Cuisine and Irish Produce
Discover Tiffin from the Comfort of Your Home
Sunil and Leena Ghai are bringing a much-loved Indian tradition to their home in Greystones, Co. Wicklow through their eatery Tiffin by Sunil.
Award winning Chef Sunil Ghai is an expert in the seamless blending of Indian Cuisine and Irish produce, his rich career as a chef and his popular Camden Street restaurant Pickle in Dublin is testament to this. Now Sunil and his wife Leena have turned their attention to their local area of Greystones where they have set up Tiffin by Sunil, a small takeaway and delicatessen hoping to spread their love of authentic Indian cuisine with the locals of this bustling coastal Wicklow town.
The Indian tradition of lunch with Tiffin boxes was the inspiration for the development of Tiffin by Sunil. Tiffin boxes were developed in the 1890s in Mumbai by a man named Mahedeo Havaji Bachche when he set up his lunch delivery service. Starting off with 100 men, the venture grew to other cities around India, where lunchboxes (named Tiffins) were delivered by people on bicycles all the way up to trains. The tradition of tiffin boxes made sure busy workers and school children received a hot meal to get them through a busy day.
It was this nostalgic feeling for his homeland that drove Sunil and Leena to open up Tiffin by Sunil, providing great tasting lunch and evening takeaway options in the tradition of Indian cuisine to the people of Greystones. And what a selection of delicious dishes they have to choose from. Tiffin lunches can be pre-ordered and can beat the banality of school and work lunches and add much needed flavour to your meal. From freshly baked Indian breads to rice and samosas accompanied by favourites such as chicken tikka and a range of sauted vegetables, a tiffin lunch will make sure you get the sustenance to get through a productive work day. All tiffin lunches are accompanied by fresh fruit or vegetable salads.
The tastes of Tiffin by Sunil can also be enjoyed delivered to the comforts of your own home with their dedicated takeaway service. The favourites of Indian cuisine expertly prepared by Sunil and his team are available to order. Enjoy favourites such as a spicy lamb vindaloo to the ever popular seafood curry and the farmer’s butter chicken. These can be accompanied by perfumed rice and freshly baked naan bread or vegan roti.
Dietary requirements are catered for by Tiffin, with allergens clearly stated on the menus and a wide variety of versatile vegan and vegetarian options that will satisfy all tastes. Not to leave the children feeling left out, Tiffin also features a kids menu to delve into. Kids can also make the most of the Tiffin Box lunch menu. These healthy lunch options can be pre-ordered and collected the evening before the next school day.
At Tiffin all ingredients are freshly prepared with no additives or preservatives and spices are ground and blended in store leaving no waste behind in keeping with Sunil and Leena’s wish for sustainability. The couple encourage visitors into their retail space located in Greystones Village. Leena is more than happy to share her knowledge of Indian spices and advise on their uses. In house ground spices and homemade chutneys are available to buy in store. Make sure to stop by Tiffin when you’re passing Greystones to get your introduction into authentic Indian cuisine.
