To be fair, maybe I shouldn't have eaten here lol
I'm not a fan of vegetarian food, so maybe I should've gone elsewhere. People live like this? LOL
I got the Veggie Thali - 5 items for £7. So not expensive. The portions were small. I like Indian food and had to try it in London, but this isn't what I was expecting. The rice and fried bread were fine, salad was a bit sad looking. I didn't...more
I love Indian food because (1) I usually have more food options as I follow a pure vegetarian [no onion/garlic] diet and (2) I'm in England where Indian food is said to be awesomely delicious. I had heard about this place and was in the area just in time for dinner. It was a Sunday.

To be honest I have no idea what the dishes were called- but I loved the variety. A spicy red bean stew, a spinach potato curry option, another cauliflower...more
