Now it is a hotel with a restaurant

It looks like this original place does not exist anymore but they are somehow connected with this new hotel just opposite of the previous location. The hotel is also called Temptation. We came here a day before their official opening and were served. We had rice and curry. They brought three different curries with red rice. The food was not enough for two people at all so we left hungry. The quality was average. The owner was very nice. Prices are cheap though the place looked expensive.

P.S. avocado salad with passion fruit dressing was great though

Relaxed and tasty

The owner is such a pleasant person and understands vegan. The food is fresh, black coffee is pretty cool. There are a few vegan options on breakfast, and on lunch/dinner. I had the Coconut milk pittu with was really nice. Definitely will come again.

Amazing vegan food!

Raja’s restaurant is as unique as it’s owner. Most of the vegetarian dishes are vegan and Raja totally knows what vegan is and every little request we had (like no onion) was never a problem. The food was tasty and I’m sure we are going to back breakfast and lunch😄Raja himself is super friendly and bubbly person.

Pros: Many vegan options, Easygoing
