Street food for the dining classes - Edit

We came here for dinner because of the listing on HC. It was an interesting place, with the decor (including in the toilets) simulating a Mumbai street setting. The menu was also different from most Indian restaurants I’ve been to. There were a handful of vegan dishes (marked V and DF) on the menu, so we ordered from these. Standout was the Chana Dal Chaat ($14), a salad with fresh and delicious favours and creamy and crunchy textures. The dal ($20 with rice) was nice, a bit spicier than most I’ve had. The Ragda Pattice ($16), Bombay Aloo ($8) and Bean Porial ($10) were fine, and three of us worked hard to get through all the dishes (washed down with vegan beers on tap). This restaurant is not cheap for the amount of food but its menu is interesting and this is its drawcard.

Pros: Interesting menu and decor

Ahhh-mazing! - Edit

Several vegetarian options, and the four dishes we tried were delicious! The Cauliflower Manchuria was our favorite. I’ve never had anything like it before. This was a fun little place with tasty food and a hefty drinks menu.

Wonderful 'street food' menu... - Edit

We were here for a celebration dinner and it was a great dining experience. Our group was a Vegan, a Coeliac and 2 vegetarians. All of us were easily catered for with our meals.

While Indian food can be fairly standard offerings in a lot of western countries, this restaurant sets itself apart by specializing in street food dishes. We chose all of our dishes off this menu and they were all great.

We had the Chana Dal Chaat, the Moong & Urad Dal Vada and the Veg Manchurian. These were all delicious. The Veg Manchurian was a stand-out....very tasty! Also tandoori roti bread that was made dairy-free, no problem.

The 'streets' menu dishes do not come with rice (get some as a side order), and are smaller than a regular main but were a great size to share and a good way to sample a variety of different flavors.

When you eat Indian food semi-regularly, it's enjoyable trying something new and completely different from this part of the world, for a change.

The restaurant is vibrant and lively and the decor is clean, trendy and well designed. Even the 'train-carriage' themed bathrooms were great attention to detail with piped train sounds coming through the speakers.

Serving staff were knowledgeable and efficient. Prices were moderate and we thought it was great value.

Pros: Good vegan options., Great service. Clean restaurant., Moderate pricing

Cons: No vegan desserts offered
