Our comments: Excellent totally vegetarian Indian restaurant & takeaway. Eggs are not used in any dishes. There is a huge range of labelled vegan options, including Oriental dishes as well as Indian ones. They serve Indian dishes containing tofu, which is pretty unusual but good. They also offer a range of vegan friendly Indian sweets. The Gujarati thali consists of the curry of the day, 2 starters of the chef’s choice, plain steamed basmati rice, daal, 3 rotli breads (or 3 puri breads or 3 bhatura breads), 1 sweet dish of the chef’s choice, salad item of the day; ask for the vegan version. The staff are friendly and understand veganism. Soya milk and yoghurt are stocked for drinks such as vegan lassi and Indian Masala chai tea. Special dietary requirements are catered for including gluten free Indian breads. No alcohol is served but you can bring your own drinks, there is a corkage charge. Home delivery available, call for availability, there is a minimum spend and a £2.50 delivery charge. This multi award winning restaurant is one of the best places in Wales for vegans to dine in.
