Awesome gujurati food!

Loved that the owner is a vegan himself and is able to customize many of the dishes. The undhiyu is amazing! The food is not crazy spicy but is flavorful and enjoyable. The kacchi dabeli is good as well.

Pros: Vegan gujurati thali option, Food is very flavorful , Reasonably priced

Vegan friendly

I've been visiting this restaurant for a few years since it has a well marked vegan menu which is not common for an Indian restaurant. One of the owners is vegan and gluten-free.

I usually have the shaak (roti and 2 curries) or the thali along with a snack (e.g. vada pav, khaman) and it's never disappointed me. The undhiyu curry could get a little oily though.

Pros: Quick service and friendly staff, Vegan options and menu, Good value and small portions

Cons: Slightly greasy curry

A notch above

Completely vegetarian Indian restaurant with a menu that identifies vegan and vegan optional items, as well as most popular items. Almost all of the customers in the restaurant were South Asian which I think is always a good sign. The host at the register was excited to know it was our first time visiting and she was very happy to recommend great vegan dishes. We tried the Gujarati Thali without the raita and the Samosa Chaat, both of which were incredibly good. (See accompanying photos of each.) Great variety on the Thali, and really yummy mixed together on a roti bread. We also really enjoyed the Masala Dosa which is a big crepe with a potato and onion mix inside. The crepe part was a little oily but very thin and delicious when mixed with the coconut and tomato chutneys. The restaurant is very casual with easy parking, and unlike a prior review, there were plenty of tables available and dining-in was perfectly pleasant. Definitely worthy of return visits!

Good vegan options

Their menu clearly states "vegan" and "vegan optional" although I suspect some items like the vada pav may have butter on it, to be sure you should ask for it vegan. Otherwise this is probably my favorite veg Indian restaurant in the bay. For the most authentic experience try the Undhiyo. Not great for dine in as its always busy.

Pros: Delicious

Cons: Not great dine in experience

We've been reassured many times that the vada pav has only oil. On the other hand, the procured bread might have some milk derivatives.

Great Indian Gujarati vegetarian food

Great Indian Gujarati vegetarian food. The restaurant is clean, with modern furnishings & classical paintings. The service is friendly, helpful & fast. The food is excellent. This joins the ranks of the best vegetarian food in the SF bay area. They have various thalis, which are complete meals in themselves. Today, I tried their Bombay Quesadilla, which was very good, & loved their eggless cupcake! For good drinks, their chaas is also very good. Great place for lunch or dinner.

Pros: vegetarian, vegan friendly, Gujarati food
