Quick and filling

The vegan roti filling consists mainly of large chunks of potato, some chickpeas, cabbage, a smattering of other veg, in a yummy savoury sauce. The curry flavours are balanced, if a bit simplistic. I should get it with the Chili sauce next time to liven it up.
The staff are very nice and there is a relaxed vibe inside with cool music.

Pros: Good value

Cheap, delicious and filling

We both ordered the vegan roti which was so yummy and filling. It has potato and veggies and curry. Only about $20 for both of us so it's a bargain. And it's not every day you can try some West Indian food!

Filling, cheap and easy

Only one vegan option, but more if you’re willing to remove ingredients. It’s pretty starchy and carb heavy, but will leave you feeling satisfied.

Makes for a great easy meal.

Pros: Filling, Cheap, Carbs for days

Cons: Carbs for days

Only one of their rotis is vegan, but it's a pretty good and quick option to grab a bite on the go.

The Cure

Come here with a cold and you'll get comforting food (lots of carbs) and a decongestant if you choose hot chilli 😝

Pros: Cheap, vegan option

Cons: Serves meat

A filling and wholesome option

All the vegetarian curries are vegan, I chose one with mixed fillings (potato curry, rice, dahl, and chickpea curry) it was nice enough and filled me up, there was not a huge amount of flavour but I've found that a trend for the region. Service was very polite and fast.
