Curry delights ❤️

We were delighted to find this indian eatery across the road from our hotel in Toyama, very close to the Shinkansen station. The staff speak good English and understand perfectly what vegan means.

We were hungry so had popadoms to start (not on the menu but available if you ask!), vegetable pakora and veg samosa. We asked if they had a chutney tray (eg mango, a diced onion salad, something coconutty…) to accompany the popadoms and thought the waiter was joking when we were offered tomato ketchup but turns out it was all they had! This seemed odd to us as UK dwellers where chutney trays are pretty standard but to be fair we also encountered the same thing in another curry house in Takayama. My non-vegan husband then ordered a mint yoghurt raita which had milk in.

For main I had an aubergine curry and a tandoori roti which were both delicious. Portions were Beth generous. Husband also loved his non-vegan curry and naan bread. Word of warning…they do not mess around when it comes to spice so unless you like curries very hot then I suggest you ask for it mild. Luckily we can tolerate heat but were both almost out of our comfort zones with a “medium”!

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place or eat here again if I’m ever in Toyama. The staff and service was great as well as the yummy vegan food.

Accommodating and tasty!

Staff are very accommodating to dietary requirements - just speak to them. I am vegan and they recommended a flat bread that would be suitable for me alongside telling me which curries could be adapted. I recommend the pumpkin curry.

Pros: Good food, Friendly
