Tiffins or Jiko

So I am tweaking our plans again and am trying to decide if I want to keep my ADR for Tiffins or drop it and leave AK early, head back to AKL and take an evening in our resort starting with dinner at Jiko then exploring the grounds and relaxing. We’ve never eaten at either restaurant so, I thought y’all might help us decide! Thanks everyone.

Let me start by saying that you really cannot go wrong with either choice! I have been to both multiple times and for a while my favorite went back and forth but I have settle on Jiko. I think I struggle because Jiko is always my clear winner for appetizer (wild boar- trust me) and dessert but at times Tiffins will win on the entree (I may dream about the forbidden rice and sauce).

I think you will have have an amazing meal regardless of your choice, so base it on what your touring plan will be for that day and enjoy!

PS- please post food porn picture regardless of your choice.

I’ve heard great things about Jiko, and plan on eating there our next trip. I have never had it before, though. We loved Tiffins and plan on eating there next trip as well. Not very helpful, huh? I like the idea of eating where I’m staying, though. Sounds so relaxing!

Thanks for the information! One of the reasons we wanted to stay at AKL was because of the food (Jiko and Sanaa looked amazig). Now that we’ve switched to BC, I am still trying to plan dinners at AKL (after AK park or on MNSSHP nighes) and you are reassuring me in my decision!

Just realized that I had changed my mind about Jiko on our next trip. Switched to Sanaa instead. I guess because of wanting one more 1 TS credit somewhere along the way. May need to reevaluate.

Thanks. Yeah, my plans don’t really allow for much down time and although I know DH and I can handle that, I really think I want some time at AKL to enjoy everything there. It’s such a beautiful resort and it’s our first time staying there. I want to experience the animals at night and relax on our balcony just taking in the view. Eating at Jiko just makes it easier for me to change the plan around. :heart:

I have been to Tiffins 3 times and Jiko once. Jiko wins for me! I loved it! We stayed at AKL for 7 nights over spring break, and I loved every minute of time we spent eating and relaxing there.

Both were amazing when we visited last fall! Although my favorite main is not on the menu at Tiffins currently,

I haven’t been to Tiffins yet, but Jiko is one of the best in WDW.
