Blessed relief from veg fried rice - Edit

Decent veggie food with a lot of options. After taking our order the waitress checked we were vegetarian, so they've clearly got a handle on avoiding animal products. The food was tasty and varied, and surprisingly light for Indian food; no loosening of belts and nauseous regret. If you want a variety of dishes, you will end up spending a fair bit (our bill came to about 430k) , and they do charge tax on top, which is a pretty big liberty. However, after endless meals of fried rice/noodles with vegetables, we were happy to spend extra on something a bit more exciting, They have a selection of dosas and rice dishes for under 100k, if you're not keen on breaking the bank, and a few thalis between 100k and 150k. A cut above the standard Indochina Indian restaurant, and definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Quality food, not too oily, Decent staff and atmosphere

Cons: Somewhat pricey, Hidden tax

Really good food - Edit

A vast choice of nice vegetarian dishes. The tastiest of the three Indian restaurants we got to check out on our trip here. Also kind of nice interior and super friendly service with good English speaking capacities :)

yum!!! - Edit

Delicioussss dinner! The menu is so varied, just make sure to mention no ghee if you're vegan (our waitress didn't understand that word though so I just said Cook with oil and she got it!)
Will definitely go back again this week to try more of their food :)

Best meal in Old Quarters of Hanoi, Vietnam - Edit

I was bit scared to go to this place after reading a bad review but its a hidden gem i found, its 23 years old restaurant and so many veg options were available at a very good price. I had my favorite Palak paneer with chapathi & nan bread. Drinks are also very reasonable, total meal cost me about 9USD and it was so much food.
Vietnam is a place where you can't imagine veg food in local restaurants and this is a great place for vegetarians. Just to add info :They have got 2 kitchen 1 for meat & 1 for vegetarians.
Loved this place, all 5 star from my side.

Pros: seperate kitchens for veg & nonveg food, friendly and customer oriented service, delivery available

Vegan! - Edit

Firstly the address is incorrect. Your google maps showing the place is wrong as it seems the same for other places noted your using. Kazaana is NOT an ethical Vegan place. If they cook mutton and other dead animals why would you eat from same pots and pans? Who said they don't use ghee? Indian places DO use ghee, butter or/and lard. Why VEGANS supporting eateries that cook animals. Support Vegan run places. There are many around Vietnam.

Great Place for Diverse Diets - Edit

I thoroughly enjoyed my first meal at Khazaana. As a party of eight in which I was the only vegan, we found several delicious somethings for everyone at our table. Service was in English, courteous, and responsive. The atmosphere on a Saturday night was calm and relaxed, with easy lighting and a low hum of conversation.

The vegetarian section features tens of dishes from North and South Indian cuisine. Diversity didn't dilute flavors, and everyone left satisfied with their food and the reasonable bill: about 56 USD (1.17 mil VND).

Vegetarian entrees began at 70,000 VND with generous Naan at only 45,000 VND. Meat entrees ranged from 90,000 VND to over 200,000 VND. Drinks range from lassi to Coke Light, and water is available bottled or from the tap (it tasted fine).

I couldn't have asked for better Indian food, and I was delighted to enjoy it in the heart of Hanoi.

Pros: excellent food, good value, pleasant atmosphere

Cons: patrons were smoking in the front room

loads of veg options - Edit

Kazaana has an extensive menu of both veg and non-veg dishes. They host a wide array of customers and can make select dishes vegan upon request. There's both north and South Indian cuisine in addition to some prix fix options which allow you to taste 5-6 dishes in addition to some naan and rice. The spinach and cheese kofta was excellent and consistent and their naan is terrific. My main complaint is that too many of their dishes revolve heavily around okra, potatoes, and onions.. none of which I terribly care for. There's 3-4 koftas, several masalas, and loads of other dishes but again, most of which involve those three vegetables. Also I found their food to not be spicy enough, even the okra dish that had three peppers beside it. Vietnamese food is quite bland, greasy and boring so perhaps they tone it down to appease this clientele. Prices are generally fair and service is anywhere from decent to great depending on who you get. Most of the servers are quite young and have their moments of being unprofessional.

At the end of our first meal here (I've been back since) the owner came by to introduce himself, ask how our meal was, and inquire about who we were and why we chose his restaurant. Nice fellow and clearly successful.

Entrees start at about 70000d, naan bread around 45000, and drinks are all over the place. Only restaurant in Vietnam I've found decent soda water at (Perrier) as well.

Pros: selection , flavor, naan

Cons: too much okra, onion, potato, slightly immature staff

Vegan food excellent - Edit

We went here for dinner and ordered a selection of veggie dishes. Everything we wanted was tailored for us with no ghee and no cream. The staff were excellent, the food was amazing, but was a little pricey.

Best meal we've had in Hanoi - Edit

Khazaana Indian Restaurant lives up to its reputation the best Indian food in Hanoi. We were delighted by our meal - full flavoured, varied and reasonably priced considering the quality. The vegatarian section is very extensive - almost daunting. I would highly reccomend this restaurant to vegetarians looking for high quality, tasty Indian food. Will most certainly return.

Pros: excellent food, generous portions, friendly staff
