Nice place for hearty Indian food - Edit

It is self service so you do need to order at counter. The staff were very friendly and anxious to do a good job. The only thing is we ordered papadums and the man at the counter forgot to put it on our bill so we had to go up again to put it on.

The masala papadums were good. The mixed pakoras were too doughy and I wouldn't recommend them.

The plain paper and masala dosa were really good hearty south Indian fare. The drinks were a bit pricey, I had a virgin pina colada but it was served in a fresh pineapple shell. My husband had The lime soda which was also pricey but there really was no excuse for that to be the case.

Pros: nice dosas

Cons: pricey drinks

Quick service, nice food - Edit

Went here after the restaurant in my hotel was closed for a private party for the third time in a week, so was a bit cranky and the previous review didn't promise much good.
However, when I got there the server at the door was friendly and explained that if I wanted to order more I would have to come back to him. Not the most customer-friendly way to handle it, but since it was explained beforehand it was no issue for me.

Food came quite quickly and tasted good. Plenty of vegan options, including my favorite - Tarka Dal - which is not always possible to get vegan.

Pros: Quick service

Cons: Have to pay up front and go back if you want more

Waste of money, rude and unprofessional staff - Edit

Saras
A total waste of time and money. This restaurant sat new benchmark in offering hyper-poor hospitality services in BKK. It might have been a real bad day that I landed in this restaurant.

You pre-pay and place your order at 10:15 pm and ask for 2 pieces of bread along with some drinks, Indian gravy etc. While placing order, the concerned restaurant guy at order desk will ask you to ensure it’s your final order, even water bottle..... What a reception to start with..... Anyways all well, You placed everything you needed.

So here comes the story.
1 piece of bread gets delivered at about 10:25 pm. along with other items. You stupidly and patiently wait for next 30 min. Intermittently checking for “lost” 2nd piece of bread while noticing that gravy on table is not getting any hotter. At 10:55, when you finally get up and ask about what’s going on, restaurant will come up with justification that will amaze you. The service lady tells you that only 1 piece of bread was prepared, they never checked the bill. The supervisor will intervene and tell you that they take last order at 10:00 pm. Since you came after 10 pm, we have every right to give only 1 piece of bread :-) yes, that’s exactly they tried to justify that with. So instead of turning down customers after 10 pm, they ask them to relax in their restaurant.
JFYI, There was no “Closed” mark put at entry and service guy never turned me down. Instead I placed order from the cut-short available menu.
During this argument, do not expect any sign of apology for a never ending delay in delivering food I had already paid for.

Ohh, and not to forget, the attentive management delivered salty lassi instead of sweet lassi. They later double-checked with me if I had particularly mentioned that while placing the order. I did. Are you wondering when my sweet lassi came ??? It did arrive !!!!

If you can still ignore such poor service, go for a average Indian food.

I would have given 0.5 star to this restaurant. Being a veggie restaurant, happy cow grants min. 2 star.

All-veg Indian - Edit

I've had mixed experiences in this restaurant. Sometimes the food is fantastic, at other times it's been reheated in the microwave (witnessed with my own eyes) and tastes old and bland. Large menu covering a variety of cuisines, popular at lunchtime, prices are average to slightly higher than normal for Indian food.

Pros: Large menu, Price reasonable, Popular

Cons: Microwaved food, Hit or miss

Great food in a quiet location - Edit

We loved this placed whilst visiting Bangkok. Practically next door to our Thee Hotel accommodation it was a lovely little surprise bumping into a veggie place so close! Tasty food at good low prices. Had a relaxed atmosphere with all customers visibly happy with their meals. Need to double check meals are vegan with the staff, as many dishes 'can be made vegan' but was never a problem. Would recommend visiting this place if you are within a short skytrain, car or walk away.

Pros: good prices , great location for many hotels

Cons: Not all staff seemed to know the word vegan

Impressive! - Edit

I found this restaurant by chance. Most of the customers are Hindi.
I can order in English although not every staff could speak English.
Every dish is great. There are both normal dish, set menu and dessert bar.

Pros: Variety list of menu, Great quantity of food

Saras - Bangkok - Edit

I stumbled on this place courtesy of happycow. Me and she were after some takeaway and the choice of Indian savouries on offer seemed perfect to fit the job - we ordered for and it cost 122 Thai baht. When we asked the guy behind the counter which of these were vegan friendly he said all of them. I also spoke with a friendly guy there who turned out to be the manager. He also referenced their vegan friendliness.

If I had time in BKK I'd hoover back here to check out a full sit down meal & amend my review accordingly. I probably won't have time...

Pros: Vegan friendly, Tasty & inexpensive

Good Meal - Edit

When we were planing our recent trip to Thailand we saw this place recommended on Happycow and thought to give it a go. We also made it out to Pattaya and ate at that Saras as well.

Both time we got combo platters with rice and curries plus a side of samosas. Yummy.

Popular with Indians - Edit

...so overall a good bet.
I have been a few times. The North Indian Thali is around 270 plus service charge, and I'd say a meal would set you back 300-400 which for me is on the slightly pricier side.
The food is good- the service ok.
Also check out vegetarian Indian options around Nana.

Pros: 100% veg, quality of food, wide range

Huge Variety - Edit

Great restaurant with HUGE variety. We didn't even know where to start with the ordering. Brought my family there (4 people total+ 2 kids) and we all ordered a different combo plate. 50% was great, 50% not to my taste. I know what I like there now, so will certainly go back. Prices very reasonable and nice atmosphere. Easy to find.

Pros: Inexpensive, Convenient Location, Great Variety

Cons: almost too much choice!

Good Choice - Edit

Very good choice of food in a nice atmosphere a bit off the main road away from the hub-bud that is Bangkok. It was quite busy the day we ate there with a mix of Westerners and Asians. My Thai dishes were a bit hot/spicy for me. We received table service but there seemed to be a take away set-up too.

lovely pure veg authentic Indian food - Edit

I found Saras accidentally (right behind the Rembrandt hotel in an ally behind Basilico Italian restaurant) and I walked in, not knowing it was all vegetarian, and the owner who was at the front desk asked me if I was vegetarian while I was looking over the menu, and I answered yes, and he had a great big smile on his face. The staff are all very helpful when it comes to explaining the menu items- there are SO many- from all over India, snaks, Chinese food (the kind of Chinese food you find in India, that is), and Thai dishes. I have been there twice now and had a very spicy paneer roti roll wrap as well as the Gujarati thali- which was amazing! The best and most authentic Indian food I've had since I was in India. Good pricecs- nothing more than 300 baht- the Thali was huge and was 275. They deliver as well and you can order online. Nice, clean atmosphere, mostly frequented by many Indian families.

Pros: flavorful, friendly staff, authentic Indian food
