Tiffins or Jiko?

Which would you choose?

I currently have reservations for Tiffins but I'm also hearing wonderful things about Jiko. We're an adventurous foodie family and love to try new things. We want to have our socks knocked off! yay

Have you tried them both? Which would you choose for your last night at Disney? mickey

I have them both on my must list! With that being said, I have lunch planned at Tiffins and the Wine Paring at Jiko in a coupe of weeks. I will eventually get around to the dinner at Jiko! I can't wait and I will of course get back to everyone with reviews on both! Smile

Resort food is always going to beat park food.

Thanks for the feedback! I can't wait to read your reviews JMed! I've been pouring over the menus and now I'm drooling. I think we're going to have drinks and appetizers at Tiffins in the lounge and then a late dinner at Jiko. That way we can experience both! clapping

I can't speak for Tiffin's but Jiko was wonderful. I don't think you can go wrong with either. I had the slow cooked braised beef and it was to die for!!! awesome yeah

I've been to both and I prefer Tiffins over Jiko, however both are really really good. You can't go wrong with either choice. Here are a couple of picture from Tiffins last week.

Those food photos of Tiffins look wonderful! I can't wait. I currently have reservations at both restaurants. I'll just embrace my inner hobbit and have two dinners! yay Ha! Seriously...I'm trying to make it work. The tour I have scheduled for that day was originally going to end at AK but they just mixed up the itinerary and it now ends at HS. gaah The earliest I can get to Animal Kingdom is between 4-4:30. We can have a late lunch of appetizers & cocktails at Tiffins and follow it up with at late dinner at Jiko!? I realize my night may end in a food coma... Nerd but it's my last night at Disny and we probably won't return for several years. mickey I'm going to make it work! stars

Yay! I spent my whole trip last week in food coma. My mantra was that I didn't have to finish everything, but I had to taste it all. I think your plan sounds awesome.

They are both great foodie spots. Tiffins is a more adventurous menu but the execution is not perfect. Jiko is better quality food but not incredibly adventurous.
