Respond to Review of Indian Veg Bhel Poori House
Review: I've gone here many, many times over the years and always really enjoy. Ok, it's not flash and not in the nicest area (it's about five minutes from the Angel tube, hardly the long walk others have implied!!) but for £3.95 for an all you can eat indian feast you can't go wrong. All the curries are vegan with the only non-vegan items being some salads (easily avoided). There are several types of rice, including brown, and lots of extras including bread, poppadoms, fried savouries etc. There are about five different curries and the pots are regularly replenished so they don't 'sit around' for long, which can happen in some of these 'all you can eat' places. The walls are covered in information and facts about vegetarians and the staff are friendly. There aren't really any desserts though there are lassi's (vegan and dairy) that are worth trying (sadly despite having several vegan lassi's on the menu they've only ever had the soya mango one available when I go...I wish they'd take the others off the menu). Yes, the place isn't the smartest and could do with a bit of tidying up and redecorating but if you are a fan of good indian food and don't want to spend a fortune you should try this place. Finally, for somewhere that is so proud, so it seems, of being 'cruelty-free' they do need a better understanding of vegetarian/vegan alcohol. I suspect the owners may not drink themselves but several of the alcoholic drinks available(ie Guiness) are not suitable for veggies...this needs addressing. That is my only real complaint though for this highly recommended place. I would have given it 5 stars if all the alcohol was vegetarian.
