Large selection of vegan options

Lots of vegan options to choose from and they also have options with fake meat rather than sticking to vegetable based dishes. The dish I had was delicious but the chicken was a little too realistic for me although that's just my personal taste.

Indian comfort food!

„Holy Cow“ was the first Indian restaurant I have tried here in Stockholm so far and I think it will stay one of my absolute favourites! The staff is kind and the vegan menu is great and so long that it is really hard to decide what to take! In the end, we went with the vegan Thali, which I can only recommend! Three different dishes (including a mock chicken curry), Naan bread, salad and rice - not especially cheap but also not extremely expensive.
You might consider pre-ordering a table because it was quite full when we visited in the evening.

Pros: Delicious food, Vegan meat alternatives, Long vegan menu

Best indian food in Sweden!

I've never felt like I miss out on anything being vegan at this place. They have vegan starters, mains and desserts. The vegan tamarind chicken is our favorite but if I don't want fake meat I go for the Gobi Manchurian and Peshwari naan!

Pros: Many veganised meat dishes and breads, Many traditionally vegetarian/vegan dishes, Super flavorful

Cons: Serves meat, Not the cheapest, but well worth it

Amazing selection

Have only been once so far but I am 100% sold and will be coming back. Amazing food and so many vegan selections (more than it says on their website).

Sweet people, lots of vegan and vegetarian options

Small restaurant with a really nice and thoughtfull staff.
The menu is extensive, they have a full page of vegetarian options and a full page of vegan options. The nan bread is optional vegan, as well as the desserts.
Prices of the main courses are mostly between 14-19 euro's (140-190 kr). Comparing to other restaurants, this is a good price. Also, the amount of food you get, is in line with the price and enough for a full grown adult.

(I had the Vegan Palak Chicken and it was really good)

10/10 i would go here again!

Pros: Friendly staff, Many vegan options, Pleasant environment

Friendly, central, tasty

I had wanted to come here for a while and finally managed yesterday. It's just really nice to come to a place, open the menu, and find a big section full of vegan dishes.
I had the Vegan Madras and it was very tasty and, even better, nicely spicey.
I'd totally come here again. It's central and a great place to go with omni friends or family.

Pros: Lots of vegan dishes, Tasty food, Friendly service

Tasty and cozy

Holy cow has an great atmosphere, cozy yet open and airy. Their food is good, not spectacular but they sure have put in the effort to make the traditionally Indian dishes vegan friendly. For example, a vegan Chicken tikka masala!

Big props for the huge list and clear label of vegan alternatives.

Pros: A lot of vegan food, Cozy atmosphere., Made the traditional Indian kitchen vegan.

Cons: On the toilet, one sees the person next door., Quite expensive.

Nice Indian food

A really good selection of vegan dishes with soymeat which goes well with the dishes and add some substance. The vegan Peshwari nan bread is really delicious. Staff is friendly and the place is cosy. The dishes are delicious and compared to a lot of places in Sweden it is spicy when it says it's spicy.

Pros: Tasty food

Not guaranteed meat free

I’ve been to this place many times and they have very tasty dishes. I thought I could trust that as a vegan you wouldn’t get anything wrong because of their clearly labeled menu but unfortunately this last time there was a big piece of chicken in my food. I found another review that mentioned the same thing so, vegans beware.

Vegan options - varied and good

They have several choices of both vegan and vegetarian main courses - my sister and I have tried them all between us and they' ve been delicious. Asides such as nan bread and lassi drink are available in vegan versions. Prices are reasonable for good a la carte food.

Pros: Variety of vegan and veg. options, Good value, Friendly staff

Cons: Occasionally noisy

good vegan options

The food was nice and it was good to have vegan mango lassi and vegan naan bread options also. Not the cheapest place in Stockholm but worth it. Recommended.

In my opinion, the holy cow restaurants are the best places to get indian food in stockholm. They have vegan version of several dishes (and lassie!) which are no where else to be found. Great value. Excellent food. Friendly staff.

Pros: vegan lassie, excellent value

Cons: not fully veg. Offers meat dishes

Good food, friendly service

No English menu but it was clear which was the vegan section and you can always ask for help.

All our food was good and we enjoyed the meal. We went early on a Friday evening and were glad we'd made a booking. It was pretty busy.

excellent Indian food

This is a great restaurant with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Vegan options are clearly labeled in the vegan section or with a big V. There are about nine main courses, a couple appetizers, three vegan naans, and dessert. I had the onion Bajaj and loved it. The vegan chicken jalfreze was awesome and so was the naan. Highly recommend. The menu is only in swedish, but the staff and/or Google translate make quick work of it.

Pros: vegan options clearly labeled

Cons: menu only in swedish

Our new favorite Indian in Stockholm!

Holy Cow Vasastan just opened up a few months ago, and it is a place we will be sure to return to!
There's a separate part of the menu that is labeled Vegan (as well as one Vegetarian) and a few vegan starters as well.
We had the Vegan Tikka Sizzlar, Dal Makhni, Shabaji Kofta and Vegan Tikka masala, Papadum, Samosa and Union Vadji (which, by the way, is also gluten free!). Everything was delicious and not too spicy, they have vegan soy yogurt sauces and and soy "chicken" meat.

The server was awesome, knew exactly what we were asking for and told us that this restaurant is especially focused on vegan customers, which was obvious!

Pros: Many vegan choices, Great service, Delicious food

A Great Curry, So No Need to Worry

We had the veggie Thali which was good value, tasty and enjoyable. Service was very friendly and welcoming. So one to recommend.

Pros: Tasty dishes, Welcoming Service, A few outdoor seats
