This is the place for vegan meals, carefully selected and prepared these dishes are so good you don't notice that they are meatless. The paneer is a favorite of mine

If you love Indian food, this is your place. Vegetarian specialties, very good food. The place is tiny, just a few tables. But order and take home. It's excellent.

It's very popular for take away, but it's also good for a sit down meal as long as you don't mind it being a bit close. We like it because it has nice menu of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes.
