First Review by Salva

My favourite for Indian - Edit

I have been here so many times, I was surprised to see I hadn't written a review. Too busy eating I guess. :)

Lovely, family run restaurant with friendly service. Food is consistently good. Amazing variety of dishes, including curries which would normally be made with cream and so not suitable for vegans, normally.

Vegan desserts are also available.

Delivery on some of the delivery apps makes it super convenient too. But seating is also comfortable, with traditional 'indian restaurant' decor.

delicious and great value - Edit

Thank you so much to the lovely staff here, we really enjoyed our meal and the service was so friendly. The vegetable korma was our favourite. Very accomodating for vegans and all the curries are also gluten free. We were surprised how cheap the bill was and we couldn't finish eating everything it was so filling. Thank you we will definitely be back

Pros: cost, service, flavours, choice,

Delicious food, service not so great - Edit

Food: sooo sooo tasty. My friend and I ordered the Vegetable Korma and Vegetable Madras and some Naan. The coconut rice we ordered was actually cooked with lemon juice, which was too lemony and not enough coconut, so we asked for the saffron rice instead.
Service: Service is friendly but slow. It seems to be a family business, so the wait staff haven't been trained properly. My friend waited for me at the table for half an hour without being offered any drinks or some appetisers to start with, and it was easily 40 minutes before our food arrived. The tables next to us also seemed to be waiting a long time for their food. Turns out they were busy doing takeaways and deliveries at the same time. The cook herself was beautiful and made sure that we enjoyed our meal though. So one star off for service.
Decor: half the dining area was taken over with ikea shelves to extend the kitchen. Can't say it's much
Atmosphere: it was busy with plenty of customers so great for friends but not for one for first dates.

Pros: Good food, better to do delivery instead of dining, Just don't arrive starving.

Cons: Slowww service, decor needs an overhaul

An absolute must - Jackfruit Masala! - Edit

This place has amazing food and, though Indian food lends itself to being vegetarian and vegan friendly, they are far from ordinary here.

Pros: delicious, lots of on street parking nearby

Delicious vegan Indian food in West Footscray - Edit

I ate here after a late finish at work because it was open till 10. I ordered spinach pakoras, a samosa and a thali to share with my companion who'd already eaten. All the food - too much of it as it turned out - was delicious. The menu was fairly clear about vegan items and the staff were friendly and helpful, even agreeing to let me choose my curries for the thali (tofu curry and mushroom, potato and pea curry). The decor needed a bit of work and didn't do justice to the quality of the food. Standout for me were the tofu curry and the vegan naan (buttery - but not). I liked it so much I came back for a less rushed dinner a couple of nights later and had the tofu and spinach saag and the vegetable korma. Everything I've eaten here was very good and leftovers tasted great at home a couple of nights later. Living in the inner west I will be a regular here.

Pros: Delicious food , Friendly staff

Cons: Decor not so great

Delicious! - Edit

I went with a group and we shared 6 different mains all of which were delicious. Everything is vegetarian and most items can be made vegan. They have vegan garlic naan which we devoured! Staff were lovely. I plan to return for more...

Everything can be veganised - Edit

I ordered a vegetarian thali which I asked for as the vegan version. The waitress said everything can be veganised as long as you ask. I received a naan, 2 curries (she explained what they were) and a vegan gulab jamun. I liked they they asked me how spicy I'd like the curries. The flavours were delicious. I will be back.

Pros: choices, service

An extensive Indian menu - Edit

This is a family run restaurant. They are vegetarian and although they used to serve meat they decided that morally they could not continue to do so. They are extremely lovely and have managed to change their extensive menu vegan.

Simply Wonderful - Edit

Very good food cooked with love. We abstain from onion and garlic and the cook has been more than willing to cater for our special requirements. It's great to have a full vegan/vegetarian restaurant in the western suburbs. Will certainly be back for more.

Really delicious food and nice people - Edit

They have a large menu that is pure vegetarian with almost everything vegan. Lots of Indian dishes that you can't normally get vegan. The food was really rich and delicious (and really well priced). I will definitely go back. It's a family run business and they were all very friendly and kind. A really nice casual atmosphere too, clean and cosy! (They also have wine)

Pros: delicious food, friendly, good service

Best Indian Restaurant In The West! - Edit

It is aways awesome to read "Lots of Choices" in the same sentence as Vegetarians and Vegans on the front of a take away menu. This Indian Restaurant has a large selection of vegetarian curries and most can be made vegan. There is so much choice the only difficult part about here is deciding what to eat. The garlic naan is delicious. All creamy dishes taste fantastic as coconut cream is used instead of dairy. Staff are really friendly and happy to cater to all vegan requests. The restaurant is a nice place to enjoy a meal instead of a take away. It is bright and clean and the food is always cooked fresh. Making it worth the wait.
Updated from previous review on Saturday November 29, 2014

Pros: Vegetarian and Vegan Selection , Delicious Curries, Excellent Value

Great Vegan Options - Edit

This restaurant happily customises all vegetarian dishes and veganises them, it's very encouraging when a restaurant welcomes catering to vegans. Prices are very reasonable and food very fresh, it is located on a street with much competition from other restaurants but I always prefer to go to a place that doesn't balk at customising their dishes. They even prepared a vegan gulab jamun, and it was delightful!

Pros: Happy To Veganise Dishes, Affordable Prices
