ok - Edit

The food was ok- only the fried broccoli was dry and not interesting.
The Girl who did the tables were irritated and showed it.
Overall impression - Ok but I'm not going back.

Great Late Night Vegan Eats! - Edit

I went here around 10:45 pm on a Tuesday night and they were still open and happy to serve us! We had the big sharing plate that had falafel, salad, deep fried veggies, rice, and more. It was really good and great place to go if you have a craving later in the evening because it is open later than most vegan places!

Pros: Good value , Large seating area , Open later than most

Cons: Slightly unsanitary

Very friendly, small cafe. The dosa was amazing, and inexpensive too. Portions very generous; extremely good value. If I lived in Berlin I'd be a regular visitor!

Go To Goura - Edit

From the reviews, I knew the food would be good and I was surprised that it was much better than that. The portions were more than we could finish and all of the differen tastes blended so nicely together. The place is small and they were busy but we did manage find a spot to eat outside. The restaurant is far from where we stayed but worth the effort.

Pros: Great taste, Positive staff, Relaxed location

Great - Edit

A really nice place. Nice feeling to the joint, not at all too expensive, and perhaps some of the best India-style food I've ever eaten. Sorry if I'm not really knowledgeable about different oriental food and this maybe wasn't Indian. Yeah.

So great :) - Edit

Very small but nice restaurant with self service. The people working there are very nice and the food was just delicious *-* I can recommend it everyone! The food is healthy and very filling, so the prices are totally tolerable.

The only disadvantage was that they didn't have some offers of their menu like falafel of mango lassi because of missing ingredients :(

Pros: Great food, friendly service, good prices

Amazing Indian Food - Edit

This is a cosy place in Friedrichshain. They offer indian dishes. All dishes are vegan and they have lots of gluten free options. My favourites are the Indian Falafel, the Pakora and the Thalis. I am always totally satisfied when I leave.

Pros: Vegan , plenty of gluten-free options, nice staff

Cons: Small place

absolutely amazing pakoras - Edit

These little gems were a treasure trove of golden brown vegetable fritters. It was magic, and a constant surprise to find one beautiful gift after another within the deep fried batter. From the perfect cauliflower to crinkled slices of potatoes, these wonderful pockets of heart warming and delicious treats were an absolute God send.

Dosa, will you marry me? - Edit

Ive been there twice. Both times, I took a dosa.
Obviously, I will have to go there more often, because the offer is so GROSSARTIG and the taste so UNBESCHREIBLICH LECKER.
Prices really good if you consider what you actually get.
The taste may be a bit European but in a good way :)

Pros: Delicious Dosas, Friendly prices

Indian Delights - Edit

Set right in the Friedrichschain metling pot not far from the plethora of bars on Simon Dach Straße. This is not your traditional indian restaurant, it's a breath of fresh air serving gorgeous spicy wraps, falafels, pakoras and heartily filling and crazily delicious dosas. Boy do I love dosas, and this is where to get your Berlin dosas. Not really a problem but they don't serve booze which would make it a lunchtime place for me. Check out the amazing lunch deals at great prices. I do like a tipple with my evening animal free dining.

Pros: Food, Location, Staff

Cons: No alcohol

Best Indian place in Berlin for Vegans - Edit

Goura Pakore is the Best Indian place in Berlin for Vegans. Large portions and tasty variations of timeless recipes. I have eaten here many times and never had a bad choice. Just be aware that it is popular and it can get quite crowded, getting there earlier can be a help.

Pros: Quality of food, Large portions, Healthy Indian

Cons: can get quite crowded

My favourite place in Friedrichshain - Edit

Food is delicious, and portions are great! Yammy smoothies as well. Nice friendly atmosphere. I eat here at least once a week, and I was never disappointed with the food, it was always perfect. And most of the menu is gluten-free. The only little minus - sometimes you have to wait for a little bit too long, but only when it's really packed.

Pros: gluten-free, friendly service, inexpensive

I've had the mixed plate for 2. And oh my... I didn't know what was the best taste on the plate. Everything was delicious. We've eaten and drank for 2 for 23 euros.

Pros: Variety in drinks, Fresh and homemade tasty food

Cons: Small place: so not many tables

100% recommendable - Edit

Went there today and tried a fresh juice (apple-carot-beetroot), a rice-pancake with spinach and tofu and also couldn't resist having a raw strawberry cheesecake as dessert...

What shall I say?
Each of those things was absolutely, 100% delicious! Nicely spiced and extraordinary pancake and the cake was sweet, but not too sweet and had a good texture.

The guy at the counter (where you order) was also nice and gave me enough time to decide. The price was absolutely OK, I paid 13€ or so - for a filling dish, a fresh juice and a dessert - c'mon :)
I would recommend going there to anyone and will for sure come back when I visit Berlin again !

Pros: delicious, good price for the value, nice staff

Cons: nothing.

Great place - Edit

We came here for dinner and didn´t regret for one second! The atmosphere in this small and cosy place is as great as in the whole district of Friedrichshain! Come here on a Saturday Night and you will know what I´m talking about :)

The prices are really good for what you get! The plates are big and staff is very relaxed and friendly.

Thank you very much! We´ll come back for sure :)

Pros: Atmosphere, food, prices

Cons: very small place

Great place for dinner - Edit

I came here with 3 friends, we all loved our meals, our drinks, and were satisfied with the quality, the taste, and the price.

I had the Raw Chocolate Smoothie, which lived up to it's name, unlike other places I have tried.

I also had the Classic Dosa, and the Cheese Dosa. I preferred the Classic Dosa, as it came with some really nice sides to give it's classic nature more tang. The Cheese Dosa was nice, worth trying, but not repeating I believe — but that's just me.

A friend ordered the wrap, and loved it. And the other two got the plates, and they were huge and looked amazing.

Their cakes also seemed really nice, and looked "raw" too. However, we were too stuffed to have them.

Will definitely be returning.

Pros: Great tasty food, Reasonably priced

Amazing place for indian snacks and thali - Edit

We visited Goura Pakora during a trip to Berlin in december and returned again last week.

The place is small and cosy and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful in answering questions regarding the food. There are both tables inside and outside and the menu is quite large offering thalis (both for singles and very large plates for sharing), crispy tofu and vegetable pakoras, lentil soup, dosas with different types of fillings and lovely dips.

The food is fresh and supertasty.

I had the pakoras (a very large bowl for only 3,50 euro) which were crispy and tasteful and served with a choice of dips. I can highly recommend the coconut chutney. My mom loved the lentil soup and my husband was very satisfied with his thali (only 7 euro for a very big plate).

The prices are very reasonable and the location just around the corner from Boxhagener Platz is perfect.

my favorite indian/nepali place in Berlin - Edit

I can just also say: take the mixed plate for 2. We had it and we both felt like this was the most delicious food we have had for a while. :)Also the dosas (special type of pancake) are excellent, as well as the smoothies they have.

It is a quite small place and you have to order the food yourself and put your dishes back, but that is totally fine, just dont expect a fancy restaurant. I feel it always takes quite a while until the food arrives, nevertheless the food is so fresh and full of taste, so this doesn't bother me so much.

Pros: super delicious, price is really okay

Cons: takes sometimes too long time

Try the mixed plate for 2! - Edit

I've been here a couple of times and on both occasions I had the mixed plate for 2, which comes with pakora, falafel, salad, rise, millet and various sauces. It's quite nice and is nice if you fancy out but aren't in the mood for the formalities of a restaurant as it's self-service and relatively quick.

Although it's not explicitly mentioned, everything on the menu is vegan so drop in and try it out!

Pros: Laid-back, quick and easy, Delicious pakora and tamarind sauce
