Good vegetarian Indian restuarant

I have been to quite a few Indian restuarants. Little different from other veg restuarants, as they have 5 varieties of chat as part of buffet. Chat lacks salt & spice, which makes it more tasteful. Lassi is Ok. Coming to buffet, idli/dosa were good, Puri was good too but tasted different from any other restuarant, did not know why? Coconut chutney was made from dry coconut powder as other Udipi style, is not to my t... view more

Almost died there

It was great. It was small and had bright color walls and everything. It looked clean even. It's a small family owned business so that's probably why it can't be totally trusted. I was especially happy because the menu had ingredients of dishes on it and I'm deathly allergic to peanuts. I got something that said there were no peanuts and when I got it I chewed into some whole ones. So my bf go a waiter and asked if i... view more

disappointed

Service was good; our waiter was attentive but the food was disappointing. Buffet didn't have much dishes to choose from and nothing really stood out. It was a waste of money, unfortunately.

New Favorite Restaurant

I had the dinner buffet and it consisted of endless lassi (I tried the mango and rose ones; both were excellent), seven appetizers, open buffet, dessert and chai tea. Everything tasted great, good variety and the service was phenomenal.

Fresh and Amazing

I was first introduced to Indian cuisine by this restaurant under a different name: Annapurna. Carryovers include: the Chowpatty chaat stall, wide range of unique dishes, and the lassis. What to expect: The buffet is filled with a wide variety of food. Lunch and dinner contain different menu items and it greatly varies. Some features include the BEST Malai Kofta, a curried pasta stew and many new ""unseen"" ... view more

alot of variations but fell short of expectations

Very nice owners who will accommodate you. Wide selection that was creative. If you like fried foods with sauces this the the place to go.

Extraordinary Service, Outstanding Food.

We have tried the lunch and dinner buffet, the latter together with friends. They feature a large variety of traditional Indian food, all vegetarian. They do have vegan options. The dining room is clean, the service staff is friendly and courteous. The food is fresh and the cook knows how to play the octaves of spices in the Indian cuisine up and down. This place can easily keep up with fancy up-scale Indian re... view more

Chowpatty is worth the trip.

I am not a big fan of vegetarian dishes, so I was rather reluctant to try this place. Had it not been for a coupon, I wouldn't have gone in. We decided to go with the buffet, which includes all the lassi (Indian yogurt drinks), the food, dessert and something called the chowpatty bar/cart (?). I love indian food, but I have never experienced the chowpatty bar/cart before. It's essentially various types and combin... view more

Outstanding Taste.....Nice Owner Service

Went for a different lunch/dinner experience. The owner greeted us at the door, seated us and explained the menu. We actually allowed the owner to pick our menu items for us based on our inexperience with this type of food. All I can say is....each of us found something that we enjoyed. Don't hestitate to ask questions as the owner is more than pleased to explain anything. Highly recommended by my family!

The best dining experience!

Couldn't agree more with jitterbugperfume (review below), it was a delightful dining experience! We love Indian food and were in the mood for vegetarian. We went to the unassuming restaurant located at the end of a strip mall, not quite sure what to expect. The two owners doted on us and proudly showed us the new dining room, located just next door, that is to open in a few weeks. While we were told there was a menu,... view more
