First Review by Kvegana

Make sure to say vegan! - Edit

I had mixed vegetable curry(9000 won) with basmati rice(4000 won). The price was a little steep; similar to most indian restaurants in Seoul.
You should make it clear that you're vegan and you don't eat meat, cheese, dairy, cream, etc.
I told the server that I was vegan, but he recommended me a curry with cottage cheese...haha be ware.
Otherwise, the taste was great and I loved the location! So close to Sinchon Station.

Good food, bad service - Edit

I would've given this place 4 stars, because the food is really good. However, when I went, I had the worst service I have ever had. I do not say this lightly.

I will reiterate that the food is good, and there are some vegan options (they are not marked; you will have to talk to the server, but at least the Mixed Vegetable curry is vegan). I think it is decently priced, but you do have to add rice separately if you get curry, so that can add to the bill. I got delivery from here (through Shuttle Delivery) a couple times after initially going, because I liked the food, but did not want to go back to the restaurant because of the service.

However, our server was actively antagonistic toward us. She literally threw menus down on tables, did not listen to my questions (I had to ask repeatedly, in both Korean and English before I got a response), would not help me with my dietary restrictions, let out an audible "arrrgh!" every time the phone rang (I am serious), and when anyone paid the bill, she did not speak to them but just put the receipt down in front of them to read. I do not want to rant, but she made me feel uncomfortable to the point that I will not go back there.

Previous reviews said they had good service, so this may be a fluke, but I cannot in good conscience give this restaurant a good review.

Pros: Good food, Easy to find

Cons: Horrible service

A real Indian treat, just a few steps from Sinchon station - Edit

This lovely restaurant is located on the third floor of a building which faces Sinchon station. I ordered chana masala with rice and specified that I don't want any cheese or cream in my dish. I was relieved to hear the waiter repeating my request to the ears of the cook and indeed, I got exactly what I wished for. It was so delicious and filling, and very mildly spicy. Highly recommended!

Pros: many vegetarian and vegan options, close to Sinchon station (line 2), friendly staff

Cons: none :)

Best Vegan friendly Restaurant in Seoul -Jyoti - Edit

My favorite vegan friendly restaurant in Seoul . The food , veggies are fresh and delicious. (You have to mentioned while order about vegan ), they actually prepare according to your choices. There are a variety of vegetable curries on the menu . The services are good and prices are reasonable.

Good food, nice service - Edit

I was skeptical of getting Indian food in Seoul, but this place is great. I had the aloo gobi with some rice and naan. I was eating with a vegetarian who is a regular and thought there might be a problem with dairy. To my surprise, the server overheard that I was vegan, relayed the message to the cook, and assured me that there were no animal products in my dish. Moreover, we were given complementary mango juices at the end of the meal. Fantastic place, friendly staff, great food!

Pros: Attentive staff, lots of vegetarian and vegan opti

Cons: Serves meat and dairy

Nice Nepali Restaurant in a great location - Edit

This restaurant is very close to exit 5 (Sinchon Station). You take the first right down a lane and it's the last building on the right of that lane. The vegan food is not marked, so you will have to ask the staff to omit dairy. I went twice and both times the servers spoke English. I tried three different dishes and all of them were delicious. The portions are just right as well. I also like the atmosphere here and although I usually don't like TVs in public places, the ones in this restaurant showcase Indian television, which is different and interesting. They also sell spices and food items near the front cash.

Pros: food taste, location near the subway, English speaking servers

Cons: vegan items not clearly marked, TVs if that sort of thing bothers you
