Just ask the staff for vegan options

Excellent food. The staff were more than happy to point out which menu items are vegan, of which there are several. With dessert, the options were a bit more limited, and what we did get was not that well presented, but delicious. The place was not super cheap, but adequately priced - most main courses were around 10£.

Classic Indian restaurant with smart décor and lots of smiling waiters. The man who greeted me spoke English as a second language and I worried he wouldn't know what a vegan was, but I was completely wrong as he pointed out the vegan options to me straight away. They were very tasty indeed (though medium-sized: some people may consider the portion sizes too small, others just right). We were delighted to see puris on the menu and even more delighted when they arrived: we only got one each, but each one was the size of a dinner plate! Bliss! We even got a dessert although it came with mango sorbet instead of ice cream, which I didn't really mind. The prices are rather high but perhaps this is a case of getting what you pay for.

Pros: Food is perfect, vegan-friendly
Cons: Serves meat

Went here for a take-away and was informed that everything on the menu can be made veggie/vegan on request. I had a dosa and enjoyed it very much! Nice atmosphere and great location. Worth a try if your in town

Delicious South Indian food

South Indian restaurants are very rare to find and I was happy that I could have dosa with aloo, sambar and chutney. I enjoyed it a lot and regret that I didn't have time to taste more dishes.

Pros: Inexpensive, good taste, variety of vegan dishes
Cons: No lunchbox in the weekend
