Homely - Edit

Cosy place with a lovely outdoor area. Separate vegan menu is helpful. I think the name might be due to there being no vegan tikka masala? :P

Food was nice and earthy (I had an unknown eggplant dish). Loved the complementary soup. Sadly the chai already had cow milk added to it. I see others have mentioned vegan chai so maybe you have to ask for it? Naan bread still isn't vegan.

Yummy food, great prices, free WiFi - Edit

This is a very oddly-named place, but I love it. They have a whole vegan menu, a great outside back patio, and free WiFi, which, for me, makes it the hangout spot that Timeless could be if it didn't pride itself on lack of WiFi. I love the food, I love that rice, soup, and tea is included and self-serve, and frankly, I even love its weird name. The people who work there are nice too.

Indian restaurant catering to vegans! - Edit

What a great find--an Indian restaurant where you don't have to worry about ghee, cream or yogurt. Indian is so easy for vegetarian food but dairy can be a real problem. At Vegan and Tikka Masala you can relax and enjoy your food after ordering from the vegan section of the menu. They also have tofu in place of paneer in the usual saag paneer and a tofu masala that was very tasty. Plus vegan chai!

The staff were very nice and friendly and they have complementary lentil soup. Lunch buffet during the week. I didn't try this but could see the vegan labels.

Pros: vegan friendly Indian, yummy food, nice staff

Pros: Quick, Flavorful, Options
