Little India's jewel

Posted on 11 / 09 / 2014

Aangan is located in the little india segment of West Footscray. It consistently good, the service is lovely and vegan options happily offered.
We have been there for an occasion, and also on random other occasions. They cater for omnis equally as well - there are no complaints.
Just make sure you make a booking - they do get very busy.

Pros: consistent
Cons: omni restaurant - so be clear on vegan

Good enough food, very busy...

Posted on 10 / 27 / 2013

I was looking for a place I hadn't been in Footscray and had glanced the name of this place on the web, and sure enough saw it on the Happy Cow site. My partner and I turned up without bookings on a Saturday evening and the place was very busy, but after a few minutes they were able to offer us a table for a limited time (40 minutes). This suited us, so we accepted. We asked if there were vegan options and the floor manager confirmed this. As we sat down, complimentary poppadums and dips were placed on the table, including a yoghurt-mint sauce. Being vegan, I mentioned to the person serving us that we wouldn't need this and she removed it. When she took our orders, we asked about vegan options and, being a little uncertain, she went to check this. We were then informed there were about two starters and five mains (out of 20 to 30) that were suitable. This made the choice simple (and we wanted to head somewhere quite soon). The food came promptly and each dish was good, but not exceptional. For pakoras, large steamed rice, Palak Mushroom and an Aloo dish we paid just over $40.

Pros: Prompt service
Cons: Not a huge number of vegan options, Very busy/crowded
