Review of Tikkaway Fresh Indian Grill

135 Orange Street, New Haven, CT 06510

Overall Rating


The fastest way to describe Tikkaway Grill is, "awesome." It may be a little more helpful though to say that Tikkaway is to Indian what Chipotle is to Mexican - that is a very streamlined approach to the cuisine that blends the convenience of fast-food with the quality of a good sit-down restaurant. Ok, maybe Chipotle (which I am an unabashed fan of) isn't quite sit-down fare, but Tikkaway does not scrimp at all in the quality department. Chipotle remains a good analog though as set-up is the same - choose your 'delivery mechanism' (i.e. wrap, rice bowl, or salad), and then your choice of meats, sauces and toppings. About a minute later your food is served. More importantly, all allergens (including dairy and nuts) are clearly labeled. The only thing that's off limits for gf folks here is the roti wrap, the samosas, and the papads (lentil crisps that share a fryer with the samosas). The gluten-containing items are kept well separate though, minimizing the cross-contamination risks to a level I'm more than comfortable with.Tikkaway Grill is the best thing that's happened to downtown New Haven in quite some time.
