Excellent options

Nice spot, and attentive staff. Lots of vegan options - including curries, starters and sides(note the only vegan bread is the roti). Further note: the owner may show you a 'trick' with mixing two sauces together, which was a little odd. We had aloo tikki and pakoras, and then roti, mushroom rice (Make sure to specify vegan), Kofta and an Aubergine dish - all really nice (but very Filling!)

Best service, vegan friendly

The service was the best we have seen in Madeira: authentically friendly and very kind and fast - they recognized what we needed fast and gave us some tipps which food we can eat/share together. We told them that we are vegan and orderded some vegetable food - which was made extra vegan for us. ☺️

We have eaten this delicous meals in a few days - every meal was very tasty and full of flavour. There was nothing to complain.

- vegetable samosas (potatoes were in it)
- Palak Soup (spinach)
- Daal soup (lentils)
- Papadams (order it! The sauces and chutneys are Huge and tasty - hot and sweet)
- Daal Saag (lentils with spinach in a curry sauce)
- Aloo Gobi (potatoes and cauliflowers in a curry sauce)
- Malai kofta (vegetable balls with tomato sauce)
- Rothi (vegan full grain flour bread - perfect to share and enjoy with chutneys and the rests at your plate ;))

Value for money is surprisingly good! The prices are really affordable, so we could eat starters, side dishes and Main menues and were totally happy. We also liked the nice athmosphere there. Visit this Indian Restaurant, you will enjoy it.

High recommendation

Very many vegetarian dishes can be veganized. The staff is very friendly and gave me great advice. The food was awesome, definitely try the koftas in vegan! Even the bread can be served vegan.

Highly recommend

I love and miss a good Indian so when we found this place we had to visit and it did not disappoint!
The staff are very welcoming and lovely to talk to. The waitress talked us through the restaurant and what they can make vegan (most of the menu). It taste like heaven.
I recommend the vegetable koftas in a korma sauce (made vegan). If your like me and over order you can take the left overs for the next day !!

Pros: Well priced , Good options , Great portions

Cons: No free popadoms😉

Wenn ich könnte, würde ich 5 Sterne geben

Super lecker, wir wurden beim Bestellen schon gefragt ob wir vegan seien und es gibt eine lange Liste an vegetarischen Gerichten. Unsere Bedienung sagte uns, es wären sehr viele deutsche bei ihm zu Gast, welche vegetarisch oder vegan bestellen. Hat uns ein bisschen glücklich gemacht😄das Essen war sehr authentisch und extrem lecker. Wollten eigentlich anschließend noch an der Promenade spazieren gehen, war aber aufgrund von Überfüllung im Magen nicht mehr möglich :D

Pros: Karte sogar auf deutsch, Günstig, Suuuper lecker

Best veg food in Funchal

Really 5 stars! Amazingly good Indian food. We already went twice and will go another time for dinner. Service is great and very friendly. I am glad they did survived the covid situation. They deserve every visit and order. Vegetable corma, dal tarka, chana massala... Perfect. WE have been in other Indian places in Funchal but this one is best by far. :)

Pros: variety of dips for food, nice service with goodbye glass of Porto wine

Cons: non

Extensive veggie/vegan menu options

Lots to choose from if you’re veggie, they even put the veggie options before the others. If you’re vegan just let them know, extremely helpful and will tweak to suit.
Staff and owner very friendly and kind.
Oh, and the food is really good!

Friends Dinner

It was supposed to be just a friends reunion for a nice vegan based meal, but rapidly we felt more like we were all family, due to the tasty food but nonetheless because of Teresa who was serving us most of the time and made this dinner a great gathering and a lot of laughs were spent due to her friendly and warm attitude.

Thanks for the evening.

Will be back.

Pros: Lots of vegan options. , Good ambience.

If you like Indian food you will not be disappointed. We had the menu 1 containing starter, main dish, dessert, coffee/tea and a liceour at the end. Very tasty and balanced with a lot of small dips and chutneys. Definitely value for money.
The menu May not be vegan, but only vegetarian.

Pros: Food was delicious, Affordable, Lot of food

Cons: Slow service at time (but good service)

Perfekter Service, köstlichstes Essen!

Der Service allein wäre schon 5* wert; sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich, haben uns alle VEGANEN Optionen erklärt, Abschied mit Handschlag und der Chef entschuldigte sich noch mal persönlich, dass das Gericht versehentlich zuerst nur vegetarisch war. Doch es dauerte nicht lang, da kam das Gericht in vegan👍🏻
Das Essen war sehr aromatisch u toll gewürzt, es gab einige Kleinigkeiten als Gruß des Hauses u zum Abschluss konnte man sich zwischen mehreren Kurzgetränken für einen entscheiden. 😋🤤
Die Atmosphäre ist sehr angenehm, samt gedimmten Licht, WC ist sauber.

Tipp: Wer Koriander nicht so gern mag, sollte das vorher sagen, denn der wird gern in kleinen Fitzel überall drüber gestreut.

Pros: Viele vegane Optionen! Preislich zwischen € - €€€

Cons: Keine.

Amazing!!!! A must go!

Absolutely amazing in customer service and food. My partner has a severe nut allergy, and along with me being vegan eating out can be a pain but it couldn’t have been easier here. The owner came out and put us at ease and advised us. We want to eat here every night of our holiday.

Pros: Lots of vegan options and very accommodating , Really good for allergies , Amazing food
