Best Southern Indian Cuisine

As of October 2021 this restaurant is no longer vegetarian. Serving meat and seafood with southern Indian vegetarian dishes. The best vegetarian Indian food in LA bites the dust. Infiltrated by the meat eating movement.

Best Indian food I’ve had in the San Fernando valley so far! Loved it. We got the Manchurian cauliflower and malai kofta to go. I’m of Indian-descent and have eaten at hundreds of Indian restaurants- this one is great. Looking forward to trying the South Indian food next time in person (with outdoor dining).

Great Dosas!

I had a delicious, authentic masala Dosa at this vegetarian Indian restaurant. The decor is modern.
I would recommend sticking with the dosas, as I felt the kourna dish I had could use more flavor.

Great food!

Go-to place for delicious South Indian food. Wide variety of dosas with delicious chutneys. The staff is friendly and service oriented. Please remember to carry some cash to tip the servers. Apart from the various dosais, Kothu parotha is really good

Pros: 100% vegetarian food

Delicious but be careful if you're gluten free and vegan

The vegan menu is nice. But only the quinoa bowl, vada and idly are truly vegan AND gluten free. The rest of the vegan items use a dash of all-purpose flour. This is my 3rd time here and the first time someone explained it to me. If those aren't your issues, the food here is amazing, generous portions, beautifully plated and well-priced.

Pros: price, convenience

Cons: need more gluten free options

convenient and yummy

We were really craving Indian food and we found this place. It is completely vegetarian. They have a separate page on their menu just titled vegan which was very helpful.

We got
- 2 samosas
- 2 lentil donuts (GF)
- 1 potato dosa
- 1 plain dosa crepe

I suggest asking for it to not spicy BC they put this paste in the dosa which they later told us was actually very spicy and we went through 2 pitchers of water....not an exaggeration. But all the flavor a were there and the sauces were good too. All the food we got was vegan !!!EXCEPT!!!!! They brought us this sweet jelly stuff in a tiny tin and they said it would help with the spicyness. I assumed that since we made sure all our food was vegan that they would only bring us vegan sweet but I should have known BC when I called earlier to ask if they had any vegan sweets they said no. And after we finished the sugar paste And cured our agonizing fire breath, I asked them what it was. They said "wheat halwa with cashews" and when I later looked it up I found that it is made with ghee which is clarified butter. I was very upset after this, mostly at my self BC it's not their job to check everything for me when they aren't even a vegan establishment. But I do think that they should know if someone orders all vegan, not to serve them that.


Other than that, great food and will come back again and ask for the dosa without the spicy paste

Good price. Only $21 for everything we bought

Pros: vegan menu, yummy flavors and sauces , good service and kind

Cons: gave us a non vegan sweet and we thought it was ve
