That’s a kebab house

Vegan options which they offered me was french fries and rice with vegetables. That’s a kebab house, I don't know what I expected from this place

Veggie Plate is so filling!

I had the veggie plate like the others recommended and it was so good.

It was filling; not too little or too much food. It was a perfect portion.

It came with spiced up rice, I chose potatoes as the topping and an extra side of cilantro.

Great place for lunch between work.

I came back the next day and chose the eggplant topping and omgg, loved it even more.

Glad this place exists if you’re with meat eaters- otherwise nah.

This restaurant has vegan options, but nothing great. They serve only starch. ¿Want white rice topped with potatoes and a side of white bread, and a small picadillo? Yeah that’s what all vegans want. Im not obsessed with protein or anything, but these guys don’t even try. Where are the chick peas at least?? Lentils?? No?? If you are in Woodland with meat eaters and you have to eat something, then sure, you will be able to eat something here, but don’t make it your first choice.

Pros: Has some vegan options, Bolani is a good side dish

Cons: No vegan protein (I’m not obsessed with protein!), Doesn’t have chick peas, Doesn’t have lentils

The samosas are good and come with a really interesting sauce...some kind of cilantro with something kind of acidic. The korma was particularly delicious with great flavor. The Shah fries were really interesting with fresh veg on top, which was spicy. The bonjon burani also had a good flavor.

Cons: Nothing is marked vegan

Great Food Nice Vibe

The food was really fresh and wonderfully flavored. We split a Loaded Salad with added avocado and Shah Veggie Plate with Korma Kachaldo (potato halves in a perfectly spiced tomato sauce). We loved everything and will return to try the many other vegan options. Staff were very knowledgeable and walked us through the vegan options on the menu. Vegetarian options are clearly marked and, as staff explained, all (or most) can be made vegan by dropping the yogurt sauce. The restaurant was modern and beautiful inside. Orders taken at counter. Plenty of street parking nearby.

Pros: Lots of unique, flavorful vegan/vegetarian options, Great service, Nice Interior
