Description
Welcome to Manju’s! A homage to the region of Gujarat, Manju’s brings you a spice sensation in vegetarian street food. Manju and her daughter in law, Chef Dipali, deliver a fresh taste of India supported by the highest quality local produce to bring an exciting evolving menu. What sets our food apart from other establishments is that continued attention to detail. Absolutely everything on our menu is home cooked to the same family recipes, passed down from mother to daughter, in the traditional way.
