Good Indian food, could be better

While the Dahl was great, everything else was a big lacking. They were very kind and adapted the mixed vegetarian starters so they were vegan but when they arrived the samosa and kofte were clearly fridge cold. It also took them a very long time after I got my Dahl to bring the rice to the table and the price was quite expensive for what we received. Altogether not awful and quite a choice of vegan options but you could find better places

Pros: Vegan options, Kind waiters

Cons: Cold food, Slow service, Expensive

Lovely flavoured food

Staff were really friendly. Vegan options were minimal on the evening menu (seemed to be more for lunch) but clearly marked. Starters were super tasty and nicely spiced. The biriyani was a little dry (I’m used to them coming with a curry) as it omitted the yoghurt with no replacement but it was a very generous portion with a great flavour.

Would reccomend

The food was really good and there are a lot of vegetarian and vegan options. We had to wait a bit long for the starter to arrive, but they gave us free naan and apologized.

Extremely rich flavourfull food

Hidden gem, for sure. The curries are a combination of a sauce of your choice with a vegetable or veg mix of your choice. The staff will walk you through the menu and are super kind. We had a mixed veg tikka masala and an aubergine vindaloo, and it blew our minds. Absolutely amazing, super fresh and it will make you savour every single little bite. The room is a bit dark and the outsite seats are on the street, but the flavour makes up for everything.

Pros: Amazing depth of flavour, Plenty of options

Excellent vegan options

Bhindi is one of my favourite foods, and it didn't disappoint here either. Clearly marked vegan options and many sides to choose from. Overall excellent choice

Deserves at least 5 stars, probably 6

One of the best curries I've ever had. Lots of vegan options, also for starts. Next to that, the staff is very helpful and speaks fluent English. We sat outside in a calm street and had a wonderful evening. They also sell great Indian draft beer.

Pros: Excellent food, Calm location, Friendly staff

Would give 5 stars but can't

One of the greatest (if not the greatest) Indian restaurant in Budapest for vegans and non vegans alike. The food there is incredible, and everytime I bring my friends no one is disappointed.

Pros: Everything can be veganized

Should be 5 star (but won’t let me as not vegan)

The food here is great. The staff are very kind. The place is not entirely vegan but they do have clearly marked vegan options on their menu - which feels much nicer than hoping places do not add milk or cream by mistake. The head chef usually comes out to the tables and checks if any dietary requirements and they know all about making things vegan. You would like a creamy butter sauce? They can make it vegan with vegan creams (I know! Amazing right?!). You would like a chicken jalfrezi but with vegetables (or vegetables of your choice if in stock) - they can make it. The Indian food here is better than anywhere else in Budapest. It is not oily, you do not feel bad after eating it. They also have amazing chickpea bread as an alternative to naan bread. Highly highly recommend and we take our friends here all the time! They can also make chai masala with coconut milk!!

Cannot rate this place highly enough. The staff are also very nice and the restaurant is nice and big with outdoor seating as well as indoor.

Pros: Lots of amazing vegan options , Anything you want vegan they can do, Amazing good

Cons: Not fully vegan...yet 😉
