Huge selection

I really appreciate the huge selection of vegan food, but the main dishes my girlfriend and I chose was unfortunately a little lacking in both flavour and texture. I Hope to get some better dish the next time around, because i don't want to count them out.

Amazing lunch

We loved the food. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful really making effort in helping us choose good vegan dishes for us. They have many vegan currys, starters, chapaties and rice dishes. We sat on pillows behind smaller indian-style tables and had one of the best lunches ever. Portions are quite big and prices just right. It is definately a place to visit, it is worth it

Pros: Lots of vegan options, very friendly staff, Amazing food, nice and cosy place, good prices

Cons: None

A great choice of Nepalese and Indian vegan food

Vegan dishes are clearly marked in the menu and that is very helpful. The portions might seem somewhat small so it's a good idea to order some vegan chapati, as well. Food is tasty and staff is super nice and helpful. I know they also have all you can eat vegan options (10 euros) but have not tried it yet.

Pros: Vegan choices clearly marked, Kind and efficient staff , Nice vibe

Cons: Also serve meat and other options, Small portions, A little spicy means A LOT spicy😄

Great experience

The staff was super friendly and helpful. They went as far as to make us vegan naan bread and the spicy food we asked for really was spicy (which isn't always the case). It also tasted fantastic and as we shared one dish it was inexpensive as well.
Highly recommended!

Pros: Lot's of vegan and vegetarian options, Friendly and accommodating staff

Great indian and nepali food

Have eaten here quite a few times since I live near but would be worth the trip if it was on the other side of town. A lot to chose from and clearly marked, nothing has disappointed me. If I had to say my favorites are kathmadu tarkari pulao (a nepali risotto) and D-tofu (dates tofu curry). On demand they can make vegan chapati.

Large menu

The restaurant is a bit fancy looking and not that cheap but the food is good and worth the price. The menu offers a wide range of authentic Indian and Nepalese vegan dishes, all clearly marked. I tried cauliflower curry with naan bread (around 11€). It was delicious, not too spicy and the portion was really generous.

Pros: Large menu, clearly marked vegan dishes, friendly

Cons: Not fully vegan

Great Indian/Nepali food!

Even though this restaurant is a little out of the centre, it is definitely worth a visit. It has an extensive Indian and Nepali menu with heaps of vegetarian options, and options that can be made vegan clearly marked. The staff were really friendly and the food was delicious! The price was decent - 2 curries, a rice dish and roti for 21 euros which was more than enough for two people.

Totally happy

away from the center, but easily reachable by foot, this gem if an authentic Indian and Nepali restaurant had amazing food and fantastic waitresses, very authentic themselves! Drop your shoes to sit down on the floor when yoy go for the left part of the place

Pros: A lot of vegan options.

Cons: no vegab deserts when we were there..

This place really satisfied my craving for Indian food. The waiter was very kind and helpful, pointing out all of the vegan options (which were clearly marked anyway), and we ordered quite a few things. There was a vegan samosa that we really liked, as well as an okra dish.
We will definitely be back to try some things from the Nepali menu.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Nice staff, Food with flavor and spice

Remote, but nice

This place is actually called Maharaja now. It is quite remote for Ljubljana, but Ljubljana isn't that big to begin with. I had the daily lunch, which featured a vegan main course, salad from the self service salad bar and a dessert which the waiter informed us contained milk.

The food was ok for a lunch, but not exellent. If you are close, then go there, but don't make the trip unless you have other business in the area.

Pros: Vegan option, Good service

Cons: Remote, Food just ok

Cute and Good

Googled a vegetarian place nearby and landed on this gem. It isn't called Vegedrom from the outside so I was confused, but inside I found out there were lots of vegan/vegetarian options. You get two menus to choose from, Indian and Nepalese food. The vegan options are labelled and there's enough to choose from!!
I had a curry with some naan bread and both were A-MAZING!!
We couldn't finish everything so we asked for a doggybag. Our waiter looked at us weirdly, but did it anyway. So nice!

Absolutely a nice and good place to eat.
Oh and the interior both inside and outside is amazing as well!!

Pros: great options, great taste, great price!

Cons: Don't know what it's called, outside the city centre, -
