Great food - fried everything

It's a shame this place is closed for the moment. I first tried it at markets as a food truck, and then after at the restaurant. For people who are gluten free it was a nice option (I am not myself). The mango lassi is phenomenal, and coconut pieces as a dessert are great, and I loved the dosas and pakora. The bowls were also good. Honestly I liked everything I had here. Nice ambience and fast service - I am not sure why they closed but I hope they open again soon.

Healthy & super satisfying

This is the place I run to straight from the airport when I arrive in Berlin. It’s super healthy and delicious. Portions are generous, and they use lots of vegetables. This time I had the peanut dosa and the mango lassi (all vegan, of course) and was super impressed.

Nice place, food lacks indian taste

Good food, nice vegan place. Although I was a bit disappointed that they no longer serve the plates. Also the food doesn't taste Indian, which is a letdown. This could be rectified by having some spices available at the place or by a possibility to select spicy variants. Beware, the dal soup served in a dosa menu is VERY small (see the photo).

Pros: Vegan, Nice place, Good food

Cons: Lacks indian taste, Dal really small

Amazing food!

Really tasty and well done vegan dosa style plates. The sauces are also super good, and it is not expensive. I come back every now and then and it is always great.

Pros: Tasty, Inexpensive

Was für ein kulinarisches Highlight

Warum habe ich dieses Restaurant erst gestern entdeckt? Endlich leckeres indisches Essen in Berlin. Seit wir selber in Indien waren, hat es uns in den bekannten indischen Restaurants in Berlin nicht mehr so richtig geschmeckt. Aber in diesem kleinen Restaurant 🤩 Das Dal und die Dosas ein Traum. Corona-bedingt sollte man vorab die Öffnungszeiten erfragen. Aber hingehen sollte man auf jeden Fall🤗
Why did I discover this restaurant only yesterday? Finally delicious Indian food in Berlin. Since we have been in India ourselves, we have not really enjoyed the famous Indian restaurants in Berlin. But in this little restaurant! The Dal and Dosas a dream. Due to Corona you should ask for the opening hours in advance. But you should go there in any case.

Pros: Alles vegan, Lecker, lecker, lecker!, Mitten im trubeligen Kitz von Friedrichshain

Cons: Mitten im trubeligen Kitz von Friedrichshain 😜

Satvic Indian fusion food

This restaurant offers a large variety of dosa, bowls, wraps and a few curries, featuring fresh vegetables, falafel and tofu.

The use of tofu and falafel seems to be a vegan innovation creating a modern, Indian fusion food.
Most of all, I enjoyed the crispy dosa and sweet, flavorful chutneys.🥞🥭🥥

Overall, the portion size was quite generous: Two main dishes plus one starter were almost too much for two people... 😅

Pros: Good food, Large portions

Tasty Dosa

Alright place. The decor was pretty cheap and not that nice but the staff was really friendly, the prices were good and the classic dosa which I had was very yummy. Wouldn't mind going here again.

Some things are worth the try!

A nice place to eat with professional staff, a little cold but they got us everything we needed. The onion rings were great as a starter and then me and my boyfriend ordered the for 2 people veggie menu. Three curries a rice and we also got some naan. It was too much. One of the curries we loved- pakora paneer but the other two were just okay and maybe didn't compliment each other- korma and chilli paneer.

100% Veganific glory! (For non-vegans too😉)

Whether it is a sit-down restaurant or fast-food bites you want, this is a place worth visiting!
The mix of flavors and the choices you get therein + the kind-hearted passionate people there really make Goura Pakora stand out.
I am a full Vegan and one thing I have learned, go to a full vegan restaurant and you will see, feel and taste the passion in the food.

Remember to stop by and enjoy!

Nice indian-styled eatery

Goura Pakora offers some nice indian-styled foods in their eatery with place for 30-ish persons. The place is quite popular, so you might book a table in advance if you would like to eat there at Friday og Saturday evening.

Goura Pakoras food is focused on a selected aspect of the Indian kitchen. So the selection is small, but good.

A recommendation to Goura Pakora from me, especially if you like Indian food.

Good vegan food

Good food but not memorable. They were out of the option i wanted so i needed up with some rice with vegetables which was good but could easily be done at home. Not many option available, as there were like 5 dishes and different variations of each.

Pros: Vegan

Cons: Not many options to choose from

Reasonable self-service & amazing flavours

Flavour saviours Goura Pakora came through with the good good. A cute little self-service vedic Indian venue that specialise in amazing dosas for really reasonable prices. The selection was all incredibly freshly prepared and no fuss. We went for the Mumbai Dosa filled chock full of tofu, tomato, spinach, dal and all manner of other lovely things. We also got a bowl of the veg pakora which was a well cooked and an interesting selection of deep fried veg.

Then we come to the chutneys, now I’m a sauce addict and believe that most foods are vessels for flavoured gloop and this was the perfect example; coconut chutney, mango chutney, tomato chutney and pear… yes x 4. Couldn’t get enough. Everything was perfectly seasoned and had generous portions, my only complaint was not enough heat but I’m a spicy gal so that can’t be helped. Definitely go and make sure to take an empty stomach and some hungry eyes.

Pros: Great price, Amazing flavours, Nice menu offering

Cons: Self-service and can be a little slow

Poor taste, looong waiting

We had pakora and dosa thali, pakoras are ok and salat is nice, but the rest doesn’t have any taste even after 1 hour waiting!!!! They dont use any spices and lack of salt in Indian restaurant 🙏🏼🙄 if I had this in small town would be happy, but in Berlin it is worse than average

Pros: Big portions

Cons: No taste, One our waiting and another 10 minutes waiting, for the second meal, we didn’t eat together

So tasty, nice atmosphere

The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because we waited 30-40 minutes for food and the dishes didn’t arrive close enough together for us to be able to eat together. They looked really busy though do it makes sense! Other than that it was really tasty, not too expensive, great portion sizes and friendly service.

Pros: All vegan, Really tasty, Not too expensive, great portion sizes

Cons: Took a long time, Didn’t come out with other friends orders
