A vegan staple in Roanoke

A must try with plenty of options and a large enough menu to accommodate varying dietary needs.

Pros: My go to for Vegan takeout, Go to for dinner with out of town guests , Great happy hour deals

Kinda bland

Sadly, the aloo gobi capsicum I ordered was just not very flavorful.

So many options

Three of us vegans, with myself being gf, got takeout dinner. I called in and asked about other dishes apart from the vegan menu and they were able to make two others vegan: Vindaloo with tofu, and Chana Pindi. We also got the Thaduka Dahl (from the vegan menu) and Roti. Everything was delicious - best Indian we’ve had in a while. Really appreciated the knowledge and accommodations on the menu. Wish we’d dined in so we could have ordered the Chickpea Brownie with vegan ice cream for dessert!

Pros: Many vegan options, Helpful staff, Delicious

A complete vegan and gluten free menu! And the food is amazing. You MUST try if you’re in the area. Food is not too spicy either

Pros: Full vegan menu , Not too expensive

Decent food in a nice atmosphere

I went here for a business holiday party on a Wednesday evening. I thought the atmosphere was lively, but cozy and conducive for conversation.

I love that the menu has a designated vegan section. There are other items on the menu that are already vegan, and I suspect others could easily be adapted. I got the vegan soup (I can't remember the name), which was very brothy and warming. For my entree, I got the aloo gobi. I wanted more cauliflower, and it was way too oily for my liking (I eat oil-free at home) and it wasn't as well-seasoned as I would've liked. The rice is served family style in a big bowl. I thought the entree portions were generous. I didn't have room for dessert, but there is a vegan beet halwa on the menu.

Pros: Vegan section on the menu, Vegan dessert option, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Some food is oily, Food could be better seasoned

Excellent food & service

Server was very helpful & very knowledgeable about the vegan options.A whole section of the menu is devoted to vegan food. Okra fritters were AMAZING!! Very highly recommended! Will support their efforts every time we are here in Roanoke.

Pros: lots of vegan options

Vegan friendly section on menu!

I heart when menus label vegan items, but I brim with ebullient rapture when it had its own section! This restaurant makes me happily blissful! It's awesome!

Ok, so not everything that is vegan is listed in this entree corner, but that's an added bonus. There are some appetizers too that are vegan- like cauliflower, samosas, bread and other Indian fare like idli, pakora, soups, salads and dosas. This place is a hidden surprise trove of tasty treats!

Also, the portions are very generous. You will be full- this is often a problem for my appetite at other Indian restaurants. Not here! Yay! The food is freshly prepared and quite tasty. Not too salty. The rice is not buttered or doctored up to be non-vegan. Any place that has spiced cauliflower, coconut-based veg curries, rasam soup, spinach salad and dosas that are vegan wins my approval. So satisfying! People here are nice, too- bonus!

Pros: Vegan section, More vegan items not in veg section, Portions

Cons: Not 100% veg, Need to ask about some veg items
