Very filling, tasty food! - Edit

The staff speak English and it was easy to adjust the menu, I got the veg chow mien with no ghee and egg, it was quite tasty.
I also got the samosa which was the best samosa I've had in my life. (I'm Indian so I know good samosa)
They provide you a little sample platter of jalapeños, pickles and an unidentified food (looks like meat) the pickles are fantastic!

Pros: friendly staff, tasty food, free pickles, free wifi, easy to veganize

Great food! a calm place among the crazy shops - Edit

This place is hard to find as it's in a very busy shopping area. It's on the 4th floor, so look up for signs. The staff were warm and welcoming, the manager even told us the story of his grandfather (a Gurkha from Nepal). They had the best Samosas I've had in a long time, good enough to rival some Indian restaurants in the U.K. The Paneer masala was lovely (obviously not suitable for vegans but fine for vegetarians). All vegetarian dishes were labeled with a V, you may have to ask about what is vegan though. I really enjoyed my meal, and it's also a child friendly place, with an elevator for push chairs or easier access! Well worth a visit, a calm place among the storm of the shops!

Pros: amazing veg samosas

Cons: a little hard to find in the busy area

Best Indian food in Seoul - Edit

I love this place! I often make an excuse to come atlease once a month.

Its the only Indian restaurant with such a variety of veg options. Im talking momos, pakoras, soups, dals, curry, rice dishes, noodles, nann, etc... oh and the the BEST, and i mean the best, samosas in Seoul. Deliciously crispy outside and warm savery inside. Oh and big too.. not some whimpy freezer ready samosa like at some other places.

Most other Indian restaurants in Seoul have a very limited vegan menu but this places, while it still serves meat, it also supports a wide range of options for us veggies. I've yet to find another indian place that has vegan momos or vegan nann for that matter.

The people who work there also speak English so if you need to ask questions or communicated anything (Ie. that you want to make a vegetable dish vegan - no cream, butter etc.) they are more then helpful.

Pros: Delicious, Variety, English menu and staff

Cons: A bit on the pricy side (approx. W10,000 a dish)

Look, I wouldn't recommend it - Edit

We went to this Restaurant today for lunch, it's up stairs on one of the alleys in Myeondong. It looked nice when we came in and when we looked at the menu it had a lot of vegetarian options.

We ordered the vegetable momos (dumplings) which were okay, just steamed with some dip. The main we ordered was the Thuk something (I think it was the dish the other reviewer had) It was meant to be noodles with vegetables in a red spicy sauce. The noodles were a mixture of cooked and not cooked - some crunchy. The mixed vegetables was just onion and some mushrooms, and the sauce was bland and not spicy at all. It was cold in some areas and hot in others. To be honest I'm pretty sure it was just chucked in the microwave.

Considering the 2 dishes cost us over 20,000 won, we were super disappointed and ended up getting a second lunch to make up for it.

The staff spoke english and the menu was in english which is good I suppose, but I definitely wouldn't go back again.

Unique and Delicious - Edit

Tibetan foods are totally different than Indians.
My recommendation is Tukba the noodle soup, they have spicy and non spicy version. it's really yummy. their foods are all yummy tho.
Staffs speaks English so please double check for milk, egg, butter etc. as they serve meat, they better get notice and be careful.
