The options for toasties were chick’n mayo, bahn mi chay, seitan steak, maple coconut BLT and cheese & pesto. It is definitely well worth a visit.

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.

Comments: Choose between rice, noodles or mixed vegetables for your base. Make sure you ask for no egg. Add what you fancy from shitake or champignon mushrooms, tofu, pineapple, pak choi, bamboo shoots, baby corn, broccoli and/or cashew nuts. The toppings of peanuts, fried garlic, fried onions, sesame seeds mix and fresh coriander are also suitable. Then choose a sauce from the vegan options of Hong Kong (sweet and sour), Tokyo (teriyaki), Hot Asia (hot) or Bali (Oriental peanut). The other sauces are not vegan. They cook it in front of you. There is another branch in Central Cardiff.
