    Tiffins will celebrate the art of traveling, featuring a diverse menu drawing from places that inspired the creation of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Open for both lunch and dinner, Tiffins will also include waterfront views from comfortable indoor and outdoor seating areas. And if you’re wondering about the story behind the name, “tiffin” is an Indian English word for a midday meal or a type of container used to carry food while traveling.

    Wow, I have to hand it to Disney. They are filling in all of the gaps for DAK. Basically everything that the park desperately needs, it is getting in 2016.

    Behind Pizzafari, along the trail towards Avatar. It will share a kitchen with Pizzafari as well. Here's a fairly recent picture (from WDWTraveler over on Magic):

    Ok, so it's a sister project to Avatar "in a way". Weird that the water view would not be towards the Tree of Life or RoL. Also I wonder if this will be the default sit down restaurant for Avatar... I haven't heard much about food offerings for Pandora, except for the generic "must have" quick service and carts.

    There will be a quick service restaurant themed to the Mess Hall from the movie, but I don't believe there will be a sitdown inside the land.

    Is this the new table service that people have been talking for a while coming to Discovery Island for a while now or a different one?

    Looks good to me and the concept art shows people that look happy so I'm cool with that. Disney laying the groundwork for things to come at AK.
    Fun fact: Burned my hand with some Spaghetti Sauce at Pizzafari long ago. So I'm glad to see Tiffins is sharing a kitchen with those bullies.

    So, nobody knows whether or not this will be a full service restaurant or not? There is not one server in the concept art.

    lol, yeah, it's been rumored as a sit-down since last November when permits were first filed and Disney confirmed it.

    Quick aside. Where in hell did I take this picture? I can't remember this location at all... (stumbled upon while looking for everest pics)

    Looks to be from somewhere around the Africa side of the Africa bridge because of the boat dock across the river there.
