Tasty place near the acropolis!

We looked for a place to eat after the acropolis and nearby. I really recommend this place, lots of options and very nice people.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Really tasty

So many clearly marked vegan options! Very friendly staff. Best place we ate in Athens.
Recommend the okra dish!! Would give five starts if I could.

(Just make sure you ask not to get the mint chutney. I went with a not vegan so for me it was no problem)

Vegan really ?

My crispy onions smelled chicken. I assume they used the same oil to fry both. Reaaly disgusting.

Do they even know what "vegan" means ? I had clearly mentioned that we were vegan and we were brought mint dip with our Samosas which was made of yogurt. Upon asking the waitress acknowledged the fact that it had yogurt but insisted that it was still "Vegan".

Nice interior and clearly marked vegan options set our expectations but food was kind of mediocre and we’re not entirely sure everything actually was vegan (got very yoghurty sauce for biryani).

Authentic Punjabi cuisine

Excellent quality at good value. Good atmosphere and friendly feel. Several vegan dishes and they were happy to make veggie dishes fully vegan. Clear menu and well labelled menu. Good sized portions- the samosas are amazing.

Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable staff, Excellent quality , Good value

This place is amazing! We went there and were absolutely blown away. I really enjoyed everything about the place: The food was really good, the service provided was on point and very friendly and the atmosphere in general was nothing but welcoming.
Although not specificly vegan, they could veganize a lot.
Absolute recommendation!

Delecious vegan options!

-They serve meat, vegan options clearly indicated and vegetarian options customizable-
The restaurant has a beautiful interior and the location, close to the Akropolis, is superb!
The staff was very accommodating and could veganize the garlic naan, which was incredible! The food was fresh and authentic (having lived in India before). You can customize the spiciness of the food.
Our personal favourite was the Okra dish, but the Dal is also a must-try.
We couldn't finish the dish, but they packed it for us.

Very good food,, nice little Restaurant

During our stay in Athens we went here twice and the food was delicious. Everything vegan is clearly marked in the menu and extra wishes (i.e. no onions for me) are no problem, the waitress was very nice and we felt welcome here. Can recommend it to anyone no matter if vegan or omnivore.

Pros: Vegan dishes clearly marked, Nice and friendly waitress, Delicious Food

Cons: None

Pros: Very friendly staff, Lovely environment

amazing food

I love this restaurant , they had a order online for take away so I chose the onion Bhaji , paneer butter masala , rice , & roti . I called first to make sure these were all vegan friendly and they told me they could swap for the paneer. I get to the restaurant and a lady stops me and says the paneer butter masala wasn't the best choice as it taste kind of plain so she recommended a panner sag that they could make vegan friendly. This one of my favorite dishes pre vegan . Needless to say the food was absolutely amazing and the customer service was incredible! This is a must try !

Pros: cost , food, service

An ideal place for lunch and dinner!!

Very pleasant ambience. food was really delicious. Its not an expensive restaurant and I can safely bet that the food is better than some of the fine dining restaurants. Good value for money.Must try paneer tikka masala , gobi saag with vegan naan and roti.
