Simple Nepali food - Edit

This small foodplace is run by a very friendly Nepali who always smiles and who is trying his best to meet his customer's expectations. Ordering vegan possible, vegan meals are characterized on the menu.
Update: I don't get the negative comments, I live in Riga and I'm there pretty often and non of the times happened to get something with cheese etc... If You want to be 100% sure it's vegan, just tell the waiter (no cheese, cream etc)- because I admit they have a new waiter who doesnot know what vegan is. But except for that, it's gonna be amazing nepali, fresh made food for an affordable price.
Try the Momos.

Pros: many vegan options, wifi

awful - Edit

They have labelled vegan options with cheese and honey. Ordered a Chana masala and clearly explained vegan dietary requirements and it came out with cream. Would avoid at all costs as you can't trust them.

Low-key, simple, good value - Edit

It's a small place, has a few tables inside. Offers a very good lunch option for €4, where you can choose a main between a non-veg and veg option + soup or juice.
The menu has a separate veg section with every second dish being vegan (tagged). Typical meal between €5.5 - €6.5.
Seems to be a family run business, very friendly and kind folks. Speaks English and some Latvian too.

Pros: good value, friendly, tasty

Cons: small, a bit cold

Fresh, fulfilling, inexpensive food - Edit

Himalaju Virtuve is run by a Nepalese family, so you can really expect offered dishes to be interesting in terms of spices. I personally really enjoyed chickpea masalas, the dishes a big, fresh and come either with rice and salad or with noodles and salad. Clear marking which dishes are vegan (just be aware - there's one mistake in the menu where paneer, i.e. Indian cheese is marked as vegan).

Definitely a place to be visited once again!

Pros: Tasty, fresh food, Fulfilling portions, Interesting asian tastes

Cons: Not too cozy environment
