The concept is simple – regional Indian food cooked, packed and delivered to your doorstep.
We have taken great care in designing the menu to select only those dishes which, when cooked and packed, retain their aroma, flavour, texture and taste so that you can enjoy a great meal in the comfort of your own home.
Dabba is an Indian household name for a box in which Tiffin (lunch, dinner or snacks) is packed.
Dabbawallahs are the Tiffin carriers of Mumbai who provide a delivery service where they collect home-cooked food and deliver it to family members in their respective offices and schools.
The meals are collected at 11am and by lunchtime every meal has been delivered. The Dabbawallahs have an extremely high level of accuracy and very rarely make a mistake. The meals are delivered by bicycle, hand-pulled carts or the Dabbawallahs’ special train.
These simple people have developed such an impressive system that they were asked to present a lecture on business organization at Harvard University. Both H.R.H. The Prince of Wales and Sir Richard Branson visited them on a trip to Mumbai and were astonished by their organization and teamwork.
At Indian Dabba we try to do the same. We make sure your food is well packed in boxes that will retain optimum flavour, texture and taste. The food is delivered to your doorstep in perfect condition and at the right temperature.
