Lovely Veg*n Indian, With Tons of Vegan Choice

Posted on 05 / 20 / 2012

This is a real find - modern, comfortable decor; excellent service; great, helpful & friendly staff and beautifully presented meals. The food is light, carefully spiced & varied. In addition to the indoor seating there is also a garden at the rear. Easy parking outside/nearby in the evenings. They also do takeaway.

Everything is vegetarian; vegan options are clearly marked on the menu with an '*' & many of the remaining dishes (such as the dhosa) can easily be veganised on request - just ask the staff.

Starters - nine of the ten are vegan. These include: Rasam (a spicy tomato & lentil soup); Mehdu Vadu (lentil doughnuts with sambhar & chutney); Idli Sambhar (steamed dumplings with sambhar & chutney); Samosa; Mischief Bhajiya (crispy potato discs with spicy tomato sauce); Masala Papad (topped with chopped salad veg & spices); Stuffed Papad (lovely rolled papad stuffed with spicy veg); Crispy Okra strips; & Crispy Cassava chips.

Mains - a large selection of dhosa & uttapum (six marked as vegan but most/all the other three can be easily veganised); Mischief Specials - a variety of complete meals which come as curry, rice & different breads or mini papads (eg Uddipi Tarka Dhal; Sev Tomato; Cashew Nut Mahlabhari & Dhingri Mattar, plus daily curries depending on when you visit). Again, others can be adapted by leaving out the raita or paneer. A good selection of rice & sundries is available.

They've now started offering vegan desserts - we tried an Indian Mango (juicy & spiced with cardamom) & a rose water flavoured sorbet/ice-cream.

Highly recommended for a moderately priced, lovely & relaxed meal that never fails to please.

Pros: Huge Menu Choice, Excellent Flavours & Healthy Cuisine, Great Service & Friendly Staff

Modern Indian

Posted on 04 / 15 / 2011

Great, modern Indian, typical restaurant for East Dulwich. Nice decor, food was good, they are clearly going for an original style with food served as courses rather than more traditionally. The food was great, slightly on the spicy side. The owner is super friendly and was keen to become more vegan considering soya lassis and vegan desserts (Vegans go here and persaude him). Downside was no vegan desserts right now, thankfully we were full anyway. Wine and menu on the other hand were very clearly labelled for vegans.

Pros: Very friendly, Great service, Good food
Cons: No vegan desserts
