Our favorite Indian food in Norfolk.

This food here is always good. Items are clearly marked vegan, but always mention it. Example: the Veg Thali is marked vegan, but comes with a non-vegan gulab jamun dessert unless you ask for the vegan coconut laddoo.

Pros: Tons of vegan dishes , The staff is amazing

Cons: Always specify vegan

One of my favorites

Tamarind has quickly become one of my favorite spots in the area, after finally trying them a few months ago. We have some great Indian places in Hampton Roads but Tamarind really stands out with their varied options. Pretty expansive menu, vegan and GF options clearly labeled. I'm slowly making my way through all of the vegan options, but so far the Gobi Manchurian is my favorite.

Good Indian street food

I got the chole puri, dabeli and vada pav. Everything was good. Especially liked the chole puri. Even medium spicy was decently spicy so think about your spice tolerance when you order!

Indian Street Food

Most Indian dishes can be made completely vegan. The owner is very kind and friendly. My husband and I had a fantastic dining experience in this very clean restaurant. Excellent spices and flavors. Also, they serve Dosa and Imported Indian Beer!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Inexpensive , Big portions

Fresh, delicious South Indian cuisine, Indo-Chinese cuisine

Friendly staff. Delicious Indian food. If you’re not familiar with Indian cuisine, I’d recommend viewing the menu and descriptions on their website, tamarindnorfolk.com before visiting the restaurant. The in-store menu has very few pictures, and limited descriptions.

Pros: Lots of vegan options. mild, medium or spicy. , Friendly knowledgeable staff, Reasonable pricing

Cons: In-store menu could be more descriptive

Husbands favorite Indian fast food!

First off the customer service is great. The guy at the register is always so kind and accommodating to us being vegan.
We love all the vegan dishes as we have tried most, you really cannot go wrong. I would recommend getting a couple different plates to share as they are smaller portions but filling enough

Pros: Variety , Good prices

Cons: Small space

Good Indian food in Virginia Beach

I ordered this from Uber eats so I'm guessing it would be a lot better if I went and sat down to enjoy it hot and fresh. I tried the Aloo Puri and Khamand.

Pros: Lots of items that can be made vegan w/out yogurt

Cons: Menu was not clearly marked

Good food

After searching for options close to home I found this great Indian restaurant. There are limited seats, so take away is an option to consider. Very good food. Cooked to order. And the owner is very friendly and flexible to accommodate for spice and vegan preferences.
