Our comments: The friendly staff understand veganism and can advise diners on the suitability of all dishes. The recommended vegan main is the saag khumb; a spicy dish of spinach & mushrooms sautéed with chillies & garlic. Bear in mind that the onion bhajis, for example are unsuitable because they contain egg, but many of the starters and mains which are not suitable can be veganised. The staff will talk you through the whole menu. The pilau rice contains no dairy and is vegan friendly but the naan breads are not. The food is of a very high standard for the price. NUS discount is available when dining in.
