Excellent vegan options

Really good curry—I like that this place was vegetarian and noted everything that WAS’NT vegan, which is an interesting switch. Highly recommend

Good food, miserable staff

The food was really flavourful and delicious!! Really enjoyed the iced almond milk masala chai latte, garlic naan, samosa with pumpkin and hazelnut, chickfu curry and rose laddu. The service was good in terms or speed, but the staff were just miserable - no one smiled the entire night, no one said thank you. On our way out we said thank you to the hostess at the door & she just stared at us.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Food is delicious

Cons: Staff are awful

Best Indian Fusion anywhere

This is my top place that I have to eat whenever I’m in Houston. The flavors are intense. Food is beautiful and the place is dreamy. Their bakery cafe upstairs is a really nice place worth a visit to pick up some sweet and savory treats.

Pros: Lots of vegan options clearly marked , Beautiful decor , Unbelievable tasty food

Cons: Moderately expensive , Parking can be hard during peak dining hours

The most delicious food

The absolute must flavorful dishes I’ve had since being vegan. Menu very clearly indicates which items are vegan. They have meatless Monday and vegan options everyday. Even the desserts are great.

Great vegan options

I love ordering here, as there are clearly marked options for vegan starters, mains, sides, AND desserts! I recommend the chickfu curry, Punjabi cauliflower, carrot roti, and ginger cookie! Great cocktails, too!

Really good Indian/fusion food. The servers were really helpful (Thanks Jennifer!) and the food was delicious. It's different, I don't eat Indian food often so it's nice to have a change for the regular flavours in my diet.

It's very busy so I would recommend reservations.

Pros: different flavours, Interesting location, Great service

Cons: Noisy, Busy, Reservations recommended

I just tried this place out the other day and I've been dreaming of it ever since. All the vegan options are clearly marked and there are several of them. I felt like the portion sizes were a bit small, but honestly, the food was so hearty and good that the portion size was perfect for me (and my boyfriend). The flavors and spices are just amazing here and your palate will be very happy with you.

I ordered one of the vegan curries with eggplant and it was one of the best dishes I've had in a while. I can't wait to go back.

Pros: Vegan and Vegetarian Clearly Marked, Flavorful Dishes, Overall Great Food

Cons: Slightly Smaller Portions, not bad though

Spicy mostly-fusion Indian

First of all, most of the dishes are spicy. Not all, but if you have a mild palate, be sure to inquire before you order (fyi, the beet and barley salad is not spicy in the slightest).

This is an omni resto but the vegan options are easily identified. I like the flavourful combinations. Look at their side menu for more options. I really like the uttapam (without greens - they are spicy) and the beet/barley salad. The thalis are a great way to try out different sides. I consider them well-priced for the amount of food you get. The beet/barley salad is a huge entree size.

I like the fresh juices, although they are a small serving (also only $3). The imli drink is also very special, a tamarind-mango drink with a bit of kick!

The place can be very busy and indoors, it can be noisy. The patio is great on a cool day. They only take reservations for parties of 6 or more.

Pros: interesting fusion food, fresh juice

Cons: spicy, noisy, no reservations for smaller parties
