Lunch for 2

Grabbed the home style thali and they were kind enough to give us another curry instead of the raita. All were delicious and prepared quickly. Would definitely go again. The vegan options are clearly marked on the menu.

Pros: A number of good vegan options marked on the menu, Good price , Friendly service

Good Value, Tasty Curry

Decided to give this place a go after seeing it on happy cow. The staff were lovely, the place was very clean, the meal was super tasty and great value. $8.10 for a drink and curry, cannot complain. Looking forward to returning again soon😄 Vegan options are clearly labelled !!

3rd visit Nov 2019: Gobi Manchurian, chilli gobi (medium), veg noodles, plain rice. All good and very good value/serving sizes.

1st & 2nd visits Feb 2019: Very happy to finally find a trustworthy vegetarian restaurant in Dandenong, after having previously walked out of the other 2 during the order process from lack of confidence in their 'vegan' menus/food.
I contacted Pardeshi prior to listing them on Happycow and was happy with their response. The service and the food were both very good and prices are considerably lower than the majority of Indian eateries in Australia.

Excellent cheap vegan food

We ordered the Dal Tadka and Aloo Palak with rice and tandoori roti. Everything was fresh and delicious, with very friendly staff. And also, it was super cheap. Will be returning to try all their vegan items and will post more photos.

Pros: Delicious, Cheap, Friendly staff

Poor food quality and QUANTITY

Ordered food through uber eats from Pardesi vaishno dhaba, dandenong.
Food quality and quantity was poor.
Quantity of Malai kofta a was not enough for even a single person.
Food container was less than half.
Called the restaurant but response was very poor.
Not recommending this restaurant to anyone. 0 rating.

Cons: Poor quality food, Poor food quantity

Hi Parminder singh, we are committed to provide high quality food with reasonable prices, I can assure that quantity of malai kofta in the container is exactly the same we serve in our restaurant.
I am happy to increase next time if you ask for.
Sorry for not having a great experience.

Excellent little vegetarian/vegan restaurant.

All the food is extra fresh.
The dishes are fragrant and the spicy-hot ones are very well balanced, unlike in many places. I think, they use fresh chillies as the dishes don't have the unpleasant burning effect of dried chillies.
Everything is delicious. So, don't hesitate to try.
There is a good choice of dishes, all affordable and, before the evening, there are some very interesting formulas (you can eat a combo meal for a tenner or even less for a snack).
You also have the choice of different breads and papadums to accompany your dishes.

The staff is very nice and friendly.

For summarising, there is nothing posh or fancy but you can be sure to enjoy well prepared, fresh and delicious real Indian cuisine for an affordable price compared to many others.
It is definitely the place where to go for a very nice moment with the family or friends.

Pros: Delicious, fragrant Indian cuisine., Very friendly., Good choice.

Cons: Not the place if you want something posh., Nothing else. It's just great!! :-)

Beautiful Indian vegetarian food that can opt out onion/garlic

Nice, clean Indian Vegetarian restaurant located in Central Dandenong. Very accommodating boss, can cook vegetarian dishes on their menu without onion/garlic if you contact them 4-5 hours before hand. Our favourite is naan, malai kofta, palak pander, fresh and very tasty. Priced reasonably, friendly staff. Will be in to try other dishes.

Dandy destination

Very high quality vegan dishes at reasonable prices. The gobi manchurian is a standout and contrasted well against the two curries we chose, the dal tadka and Aloo palak. Keen to come back again soon!
