Waiting for Krsna - Edit

The second of the veg*n options in Stone Town was disappointing. Whilst it seems popular with local residents as a cheap meal option, the interior has a dull ambience and the staff member who took our orders seemed bored and unfriendly.

We found Radha's food to be uninspiring. Maybe she's still waiting to meet Krsna!

My partner's choice of masala fries was off-putting as soon as we laid eyes upon it. It was drenched in tomato sauce and no real evidence of true masala. The dish looked sad and tasted same. My curry was fairly staid although the rice was good.

Locals dine there which is often a good sign however we felt it was a bit shabby looking, lacked atmosphere and food freshness.

Pros: In the heart of Stone Town

Cons: Drab

Fantastic food - Edit

Radha Food House was everything we hoped for to find in vegan food after a week in our resort. Great Thali menu for low price and so tasty. Even our two non-veg friends loved the food.
Recommend to everyone.

Pros: Great location, Great price, Nice staff

Yum! - Edit

We had lunch here and loved it. The menu is pretty clear, but the waiter also could help guide us to ensure no butter or cheese sneaked in :-). The Indian food was delicious, and the space was comfortable. This is definitely a casual place and the prices were appropriate. Would return.

Pros: Easy to find, Delicious

delicious Indian - Edit

On the last day of our trip, we ate lunch here with another couple. We ordered items that looked vegan and confirmed they had no dairy of any kind. The wait was a bit long, but the food was quite delicious when it arrived. The samosas were so good that we ordered another plate. The ceiling fan wasn't working that day, so it was quite hot, but we still appreciated having a veggie place to go to.

Pros: vegan options

Cons: sl.ow service

Good for vegan food, good location - Edit

They custom-make every dish. Very good fresh Indian food. Not vegan but able to accommodate. Wander over to the waterside markets after dinner for a fresh sugarcane juice.

Pros: Location is central , Good service

fantastic pure veg food! - Edit

We ate here twice while in Stonetown - both times with non-vegetarians who were really really happy! The thalis are a great deal and all the other dishes come with chapatti and rice. Give the tikki masala dishes a try - especially the cauliflower - soooo good! Their coconut chutney is to DIE for : ) highly recommend eating here!

Pros: good portions, pure veg, good value

Cons: not the most "atmospheric" restaurant, both times they "forgot" our lassi :(

Great Indian Vegetarian Food - Edit

Now called the 'New Radha Vegetarian Resturant' they offer a good variety of vegetarian meals, starting with the Thali at only TS 10,000 (about UK £4.00). They also have many alternative main meals, all of which come with rice and bread included, and range from TS 10,000 to just TS 11,000. Although we had vegetarian meals both times we went, they also confirmed they could do Vegan, or other variations, as each meal is cooked separately. Great food and great value.

Pros: Good food, Very reasonable, Beer available

Cons: Little run down

sb_krishna 26 May 2016 - We visited in 2014. The place was looking dull; since it is very old structure, small building particles fall down due to wind. Poor maintenance; require patience to get that you have ordered; unfriendly person in the counter;
