Nothing special - Edit

Ok so the only reason I visited here was because it was featured on happy cow. Normally as a vegan I can go to any Indian restaurant and get vegan options.

So visited here last night, staff are super nice and knowledgeable about veganism.

The place is small and quite dark and the decor is very plain. I think the name would suggest it would be a really nice place.

To begin with they brought us out popadoms and spiced onions which I love. However when it came out we only had 2 popadoms (1 each) and 3 dishes with it. 1 with the onions, another with mango chutney and the last one was apparently pickles with lime juice, but it literally just tasted like eating a raw lime with a bucket load of salt. Not nice at all.
Along with this they also brought out two sauces, one "yellow sauce" and the other a chilli sauce. I couldn't eat the yellow but my friend (who's not vegan) could but didn't like it and the chilli sauce wasn't very nice. So we both left it which I felt bad as it was a waste but felt these were such a huge serving just for a sauce/dip especially only with 2 popadoms. If they brought out more popadoms and less mango chutney, pickles and the sauces it would have been much more enjoyable and have a lot less waste.

The food was ok, for starters I ordered a stuffed pepper with lentils.

For mains I got a vegetable bhuna with the only rice I could have which was boiled. I felt the portions were very small especially considering the price. However the bhuna was nice but didn't have much sauce.

I wouldn't recommend this place for vegans however if your friends who aren't vegan are going and you're going with them, at least you will be able to find something. But I find if I go to any Indian restaurant and tell them I'm vegan I can normally order most things and have more variety.

Pros: friendly staff , good knowledge about veganism

Cons: expensive , portions are small, dark and dingy
