Johannisstrasse 17, Saarbrucken, Germany, 66111

Serves meat, vegan options available. Indian restaurant with authentic Indian cuisine and decor, run by a native Indian. Reservations recommend. Vegan choices are marked green and include pakoras (with cauliflower) for starters, aloo gobi with dal (cauliflower and potatoes with red lentils - usually vegetarian but can be made vegan upon request) , milli juli sabji (various seasonal vegetables,) channa vandaloo (chickpeas with potatoes,) aloo palek (spinach with potatoes,) and aloo matter (green peas with potatoes.) Naan bread contains butter but chapati (freshly prepared flatbread) makes a good vegan substitute - no longer on the menu but can always be ordered. Open Tue-Sun 6:00pm-11:00pm. Kitchen closes at 10:30pm.

Great food & service in beautiful setting - Edit

I´ve eaten out at Star of India´s several times, mainly in a group. Once we even booked the complete restaurant with about 40 guests all eating vegan or vegetarian dishes! They actually managed to serve the food (almost) simultaneously, even to so big a group! Back then, the yogurt-based curry sauces could spontaneously be replaced by tomato-based curry sauces. Ever since our "taking over the restaurant episode," the curry sauce has been vegan, which was actually the owner´s idea. Speaking of which: The owner is from India and is more than happy to explain the vegan and vegetarian options to everyone. The dishes are served in beautiful little saucepans kept warm on stoves. The restaurant is decorated with authentic Indian items which give you a homey and exotic feel. Just remember to book your table in advance since the restaurant is only open in the evenings and rather popular.

Pros: Tasty authentic food, Friendly and efficient service, Situated in the city centre (Nauwieser Viertel)

Cons: Reservation recommended since often busy, Slightly expensive, Not completely vegan or at least vegetarian
