Ok food. APALLING service

Unwelcoming. Robotic staff. The food in the buffet was OK but when I asked for a glass of tap water three times they refused. They said it wasn't policy.

A glass of tap water is a person's right and all restaurants should give this. The server was unapologetic and unhelpful and upwselling drinks. I didnt want to pay 3 euro for water which is what they were offering. Shame.

Pros: Ok food, The space is simple

Cons: Service uncharismatic and unwelcoming, Some areas in Bad condition /noisy/ broken tiles, Buffet lacked extras like yoghurt,rauta etc which

We hadden gekozen voor het buffet (12 euro PP). Ze hielpen ons onmiddellijk met aanduiden welke van de gerechten vegan waren. Als je van redelijk pikant houdt ben je hier op de juiste plek.
Het buffet was ok, met wel een aantal keuzes.
Ik zou hier nog eens terug komen maar dan ook eens andere zaken kiezen wat op de kaart staan.
Heel vriendelijk personeel.
De inkleding van het restaurant was sober maar dat stoorde ons niet echt.

Pros: lekker pikant, vriendelijk personeel, een aantal vegan keuzes bij het buffet

Cons: niet zo gezellige inrchting

I honestly don’t have anything negative to say. Everything I tasted was delicious. When I told them I was vegan, the staff were very helpful and were able to tell me what I could take from the buffet. At 12€ per head, it was a perfect and filling lunch.

Pros: Tasty food , Many vegan options , Helpful staff

Super cheap, fast, convenient and friendly service

Super close to Antwerp central station is this little vegetarian Indian joint. 12 euro for all you can eat in the buffet. Not an extravagant buffet but it does the job. Staff new exactly what was vegan, which was most of it. I sat in the outside terrace area which may be a flattering word for what it was. It’s not cozy from a traditional western understanding of the word. But in India a lot of the restaurants are like this. The coziness comes from the company you have. Perfect place for a little break before or after your train ride.

Plant-based Indian food

This restaurant is great. It's within walking distance of the station and it's vegetarian and vegan. There is an extensive menu, if you would like to order from the menu, and there is also a buffet that changes daily (double check with the staff which dishes are vegan if necessary). We've been coming here for years whenever we've been lucky enough to visit Antwerp, and it's been good all that time.

Very good food for reasonable price

Located near the central train station. Nearly all of the buffet we ate for dinner was vegan (except paneer of course and the dessert… but ask the owner first as the menu changes each day).

Goedkoop en gezellig

Prima eten, spotgoedkoop. Bijna alles is vegan. Voor zo’n goedkoop buffet is de kwaliteit best goed, maar verwacht geen fine-dining experience. Gewoon een makkelijke plek om goedkoop te eten.

Pros: Veel vegan, Goedkoop, Rustig

Cons: Minimale aankleding

Delicious food, cheap. We had the buffet, only two things were not vegan including naan. It's not marked, but if you ask the staff, they are happy to tell you. I love how there was a paper next to the buffet saying that you are welcome to eat as much as you want, but please don't waste any food.

Pros: All vegetarian, mostly vegan, Buffet

Heel erg lekker

Laat je door het interieur niet afschrikken, dit restaurant serveert heel goed eten! Uitgebreide kaart, buffet als optie en goede prijzen. De dosa is fantastisch. De bediening is vriendelijk. Van buiten lijkt dit een klein restaurant, maar het loopt door in een fijne buitenruimte. De sfeer is gemoedelijk.

Pros: Alles vegetarisch, uitgebreide keuze.

Yummy Buffet

I'm normally not one to go for a buffet, but after seeing the options, I indulged and was not disappointed. It would have been nice to have better labels on the buffet dishes to describe what was in them, but everything tasted great.

Pros: great price, good location

Cons: Needs better labeling of buffet items

Aahaar Antwerp

A great place. It's also a lot more cosy nowadays with the white walls (as opposed to the brown ones in the past). The buffet is cheap and good. The pickles can be too spicy for most European people. Only thing I don't like are their desserts which are not tasty.

Pros: Great authentic Indian Cuisine, Everything is veggie/vegan, Friendly staff, cheap food

Cons: The desserts are not tasty , Can be crowded, A la carte it's quite expensive

needs improvement

I have to downgrade my review, it has been one of my favorite indian restaurant but it seems they changed the chef! Just to be clear, I'm only talking about the buffet option. After noticing some changes I had to come back a couple of times to be sure that it wasn't my imagination, one of my friend had also the same experience. I think that the quality of the ingredients needs to be improved, For the rest the buffet is almost 100% vegan and the staff is helpful, even though if you are on vegan diet I recommend you to ask to the staff which are the vegan options on the menu. Very crowded on Fri, Sat, and Sunday evenings, reservation is really recommended.
