Pros: Authentic taste, Lots of choice , Reasonable prices

Cons: Entrance doesn’t feel inviting

Decent veg Indian

I was really hopeful for this place since I’ve eaten at several of the other mayur restaurants, which are not all vegetarian, but have much tastier food. I did like the samosa channa chaat but as the other reviewers say, the curries were not very flavorful. I’d recommend getting the vegetarian/vegan options at one of the other locations. Even though they aren’t completely veg, they have a pretty good selection and have better tasting food.

Worst biryani I have ever had

Really disappointed as I love Indian food. I would not recommend this place to anyone. It was dry, tasteless and small. I would give this place 1 star if possible.

Not for Vegans!

I went to this restaurant several years ago, before it became pure veg, and struggled to get anything vegan. So I had high hopes when I heard that it (this branch only) had gone all veg. But I was sorely disappointed, as the staff have no understanding of veganism, despite vegan and Jain-friendly items being labelled on the menu.

I ordered a masala dosa, and when it came out it stank of dairy products. I asked the manager if it was vegan, and she said it was, and I asked her to confirm with the chef. I heard her check with the chef over the intercom, and he confirmed that it was vegan.

I explained again, and said it clearly smelled of dairy products. The chef himself came out, and said, somewhat exasperated, that it was "just a little bit of butter", assuming that would be fine.

Even after it was replaced with a vegan one (I hope!) it was the most insipid dosa I have ever eaten, with a stingy amount of mushy potato filling. Anyone who is used to real Indian food will be sorely disappointed, even if they can order something vegan.

I'm pleased that this branch has gone vegetarian, as this will help to promote vegetarianism to its mostly non-veg clientelle, both Taiwanese and Indian. But anyone wanting real veg Indian food should head to Flavour of India, Taipei's only vegetarian-owned Indian restaurant.

Large menu, North Indian, South Indian and Indian-Chinese fusion dishes.

This branch of Mayur Indian Kitchen has turned all vegetarian recently. Thus, there is a large choice of Indian vegetarian dishes. They have North Indian, South Indian and Indian-Chinese fusion dishes. They have vegan options or you can ask them to make many of the dishes vegan. I was there only once and tried Masala Dosa, which is authentic and good. Staff (Mr. Bharat) was very friendly. They have lunch sets weekdays, which include a curry, rice, nan, salad, papad, and green chutney (NTD 249).

Pros: Vegan options, Large menu
