Sunday brunch buffet not for vegans - Edit

I was only there on a Sunday for the brunch buffet, so my review is just based on that. Although I heard that they have knowledge about veganism and offer vegan options, I found that not to be true. I asked a guy in English if there is anything suitable for vegans. He did not know what veganism was, so I explained to him what things I can't eat, but still got not a proper answer. Then my boyfriend asked someone else in Hindi and he also got no satisfying answer. I had to stick to rice and salad in the end. I found that they were really unfriendly and did not even try to help. All-you-can-eat-buffet was 21 RM per person. Buffet was quite big with a lot of varieties of bread, rice, curries and fried stuff. Maybe okay for vegetarians, although my vegetarian boyfriend (he is Indian, so he has some knowledge about indian cuisine) found it not good neither.
Would not recommend it!

Pros: quite big buffet

Cons: unfriendly stuff, expensive, not suitable for vegans

Nice Indian Vegetarian restaurant w/ vegan options - Edit

Ganga cafe (named after the Indian river also known as Ganges) is a "hidden gem", a nice little open cafe situated in "Old Bangsar", close to Lucky Garden and Jalan Bukit Pantai.

They offer a lot of different bread-based Indian vegetarian food with some local options and a few international options. If you come here during lunchtime, you will appreciate that they obviously do have a lot of loyal fans, who come here often and make the restaurant a busy place.

I tried Roti Chanai, Roti Puri, Roti Paratha, Masala Thosai and the Ayurvedic Chapatti, and all were very nice and tasty, with definitely above-average curry/vegetable sauces. They also have two burgers, the smaller "Vada Pav" and the larger "Ganga Burger" (see picture). The Ganga burger is unfortunately not vegan as the patty does contain cheese.

On Sundays, they offer a Buffet lunch where you can try out all the different breads and sauces for RM 16. If you leave them your email address, they will update you in advance on the dishes available.

The food here definitely is on the spicy side, so watch out if you are sensitive to that. On the sunday buffet, they also do have some non-spicy options, because many Ex-pats with children come there often.

They do use dairy milk and ghee in some of their dishes and honey in some of their drinks, but if you do tell them, they are willing to prepare the food without.

All in all I have been there a few times and was always very happy, and am looking forward to trying out their Sunday buffet.

Pros: Good taste, Moderate prices, Wide variety of bread-based dishes

Cons: Vegan options not marked
