Shiv Dal Roti Corner is open ... it is an Indian style vego cafe ... friendly staff, tasty food and good choice of cheap food ... located next to Healthy U at the corner of A Tormis Street and MH Aznar Street, Urgello (10.302208,123.889289)

Good Indian Food! - Edit

We went there for lunch - not too busy, food still seemed quite fresh. Google Maps location is wrong, search for "Healthy U" instead, it's right next to it. (Healthy U is a vegan restaurant, you can also go there if you don't find enough vegan items at Roti Corner or to grab a cookie or some soy milk for dessert!). Back to the Indian restaurant: we had 5 vegetable curries, some kind of fried spring roll and roti prata. Everything was quite good, but certainly not the best Indian food I ever had - BUT after having quite boring philipino vegetable dishes or sometimes even only white rice with soy sauce for weeks this place was my paradise! Finally some a good amount of spices again :) (which you can also buy) We paid 430 php for two, which isn't as cheap as in other places, but still good value!

Pros: tasty

Cons: hard to find

Best Indian Restaurant - Edit

The owner and his wife are nice, kind and warm.
They gave us something to bring on the road free of charge.
The food is cook every morning and at night. They have varieties of Indian meal from dahl, samosa, roti,chapati and curried veggies.
They cater pure vegetarian food.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff

Cons: location is far from downtown

veggievince 11 Jul 2013 - I disagree with your statement that this is the BEST Indian restaurant in Cebu. Was this the only one you went too?!

Please dine in each of the following Indian restaurants in Cebu, and then make that claim. Happy Eats!

1. Maharaja, Century Plaza Commercial Complex

2. Zayka Indian Cuisine, Juana Osmeña Street

3. Firozian, near Cebu Doctors Hospital(near Capitol)

4. Mr. India, Gaisano Country Mall

Hard to find but totally worth it - Edit

If you're a vegetarian traveling in the Philippines then you know how hard it is to find good food you can eat. It took us a long time to find this place but the food was incredible. Indian home cooking at its best - simple, delicious and moderately priced. We went back again the next day even though transport took up half the day.

Pros: excellent food

Cons: difficult to locate

Indian Vegetarian Karendaria - Edit

Unless you go to Southwestern or live near here, it is a bit difficult to find. However, it is good that it is right next to Healthy U (vegan).

This is a typical Filipino karendaria style place. The food is already prepared and you can pick which dish you want. There is no a/c so it may be warm or hot. If you are not used to traveling in Asia and eating street food, please be warned, and take probiotics to avoid any possible intestinal issues.

The owner was friendly when we visited. We ordered some snacks (merienda) like roti (flat bread) served with ketchup curry (a unique indian-pinoy creation) and potato curry samosas. The roti was different from others I've had. It was fair. The samosa was really spicy, maybe a bit too spicy because it had large chunks of hot chili peppers in it. I did not get a chance to try the curries, which looked good.

Pros: good value, tasty, friendly owner

Cons: hard to find, no air con

Best vegan restaurant on the island! - Edit

This place is *amazing*. The staff were incredibly helpful, letting us sample dishes and offering their suggestions. The ambiance is quaint, with brightly painted walls and humble tables with benches. The food was incredibly cheap as mentioned above. We had more than enough food for 2 people and it was 250P! Everything we tasted was delicious, especially the samosas. Do not leave Cebu without eating here, you won't regret it!

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, good price

More like really Inexpensive! - Edit

I paid around 6 USD for a drink, a roti, huge portion of rice, and 3 extra things that i have no idea what they are but they were delicious!
The restaurant is buffet style, so dont ask what it is just go for whatever looks good!. Apparently they make samosas every morning but they run out around 10 am.
The google maps directions are wrong, is actually in the same block than Healthy U.
Really good, friendly staff and cheap!

Pros: Friendly staff, cheap, good food
