Superb Authentic Indian Cuisine

Posted on 07 / 05 / 2014

We noticed that the only prior recommendation was from a native Indian vegetarian. As Caucasian American men, we thought this was utterly extraordinary food.

They have an entire menu that is listed as Vegan but are many items in the other sections of the menu that are or can be made vegan. Don't be afraid to ask. The waitstaff were extraordinarily helpful with that.

The Vegan Thalli was a lovely platter with diverse food options served with rice and bread. The Aloo Gobi was spicy but not overpowering while the sweetness of the sauce mixed well with the peppers and potatoes.

The portions are very generous, the restaurant is comfortable nicely appointed and the service was very good. This was a wonderful surprise in little India.

Pros: Delicious food, great vegan selection, reasonable prices

Rare Gem on the NYC Indian Veggie Cuisine Scene

Posted on 11 / 15 / 2010

Being a vegetarian from India, I have always found it sad and disappointing at the paucity of authentic Indian vegetarian restaurants in NYC. One can count them on one's finger tips, and these include mainly wonderful South Indian restaurants. Bhojan is a welcome addition to this niche. It is well located, reasonable priced, authentic and flavorful food the way it is prepared in India, and most importantly, not trying to provide everything for everyone, e.g it does not have South Indian items. It is a small, intimate and warm place with friendly service. The menu focuses mainly on street and home food from West and North India, with some rare items that are not to be seen in any restaurants like dal dhokli, mutter kachori with marwari subji, puranpoli and others. And they do not ask how would you like your food to be spiced...mild, medium, hot. This is always a sign of authenticity! Cook and enjoy it the way it is meant to be!

Pros: Authentic, Value, Service
