Delicious vegan and vegetarian options

I called them before ordering on door dash. The man I spoke to was so helpful and knew exactly what "vegan" means. They made us the Dal makhani with coconut milk and let me tell you it was out of this world delicious!

Unfortunately the naan bread isn't vegan but the guy I spoke with surprised us and gave us another kind of bread that is accidentally vegan.

The food is so delicious, I'd eat here every day if I could.

Pros: Friendly knowledgeable staff, Delicious food , Very willing to make adjustments to menu items

This place is the real deal. Not only was the food amazingly delicious, but it was fairly priced and customizable for vegans. They even made a special batch of tea for me, and put the rest of it in a to go container for me. We got the mock chicken korma and the curry, the samosas and the garlic chapati. Let me assure you they were all incredibly delicious. I’ll no doubt be back there anytime I’m craving authentic Indian food.

Tasty vegan options

Started eating here back when it was 10th Street. Have loved everything vegan I have had from them. They are willing to modify anything in order to make it vegan.

Generally quick service.

I like the food here in Palmdale a bit more than the restaurant in Lancaster.

Pros: Friendly staff, Easy mods to non-vegan food, Large selection of vegan items

Cons: Easy to smell some meat dishes from other tables

Delicious option for Vegans

I love this place! I’ve been coming for years, since before becoming vegan. The food is delicious for vegan and omnivores alike. My favorite vegan option is the Navrattan Korma, which I get with coconut milk instead of cream. It’s a multitude of veggies in a delicious curry style sauce. The lunch special is only $7.99 and it comes with a delicious vegan lentil soup, a vegan side (typically veggies or Chana masala), and naan. The naan isn’t vegan but you can sub for another vegan bread option. The service had been inconsistent for me in the past, but it’s gotten much better in recent years. I highly recommend this place, especially since vegan options are so scarce in the AV.

Pros: Various options for vegans, Cheap

Cons: Lancaster location could use a facelift

Beware The Curry Ingredients

I was informed that although the vegetable curries are vegan (the majority), that all curries are made with cream. So every time you order their curry ask for no cream! Although that was a problem I ran into there, everything tasted delicious. The service is friendlyish, but not the most attentive.

Pros: Good food.

Cons: Service is not attentive., Cream in their curry is not mentioned in ingredien

The food here is delicious! My girl’s the vegan, but I try everything she gets and it’s all been very good. The staff are friendly, especially Viney; he’s been vegan his whole life and he’s a pleasure to talk to.

Pros: great food , friendly staff, reasonable prices

Cons: closed on Mondays 😬

only Indian food in area. not great

My favorite two things to order at Indian food places are tikka masala, red curries, and garam masala. This is generally how I judge an Indian food place. At Mahli's, they do offer meat alternatives, which I like, but all of their food seems rather bland and subpar to me, especially for the price. It's a shame that this is the only Indian food place out here. We often go to Valencia to get good Indian food instead.

Pros: faux meat, only place in area

Cons: not great tasting, a bit pricey

Family Owned and Operated

I've been going to Mahlis since I was a child and while I do not believe their food is as good as it used to be it's still very good! The prices can't be beat! I highly recommend all vegans/vegetarians in the area make this one of their go-tos for lunch and dinner.

Pros: Great Prices, Authentic Recipes , Good Food

Cons: Closes too early a few days a week, food has declined just a bit over time
