quiet, comfortable, delicious - Edit

This is a quiet comfortable place with a friendly, helpful staff that walked me thru the somewhat limited but delicious vegan options. Aloo Tama Bodi is unlike anything I've had before - a Nepalese traditional dish of black-eyed peas, potatoes but with bamboo, a unique flavor. The vegan options can be ordered as "sides" and 2 plus rice and a starter were more than enough. The starter I had was Baara, a tasty chickpea pancake with a peanut dipping sauce. Good beer selection. Fair prices. Short walk from city center and right around the corner from the Hilton Grosvenor.

Pros: delicious unique traditional Nepalese food in a co

Cons: Not that many vegan options (but what they offer i

Great Nepalese food - Edit

The side vegetable dishes are labelled vegan and you can have them as a main dish. I went for three side dishes and they all had different interesting flavours. Very pleased. There's also some main dishes clearly marked vegan.

Pros: Different and interesting flavours

Cons: Tasty and healthy food

Great change to normal Indian fod - Edit

This is a very friendly and welcoming place. The service was great and genuine. The menu clearly highlighted vegan options and had some different selection of Indian food. The veggie Momo was lovely. I go to Edinburgh once a month and wish I'd known about this place before. Certainly worth a try.

Pros: Clearly labelled vegan/vegetarian, Lovely service and you felt wanted, Delicious food

Cons: Not enough vegan
