A trendy, fusionish Indian restaurant

Restaurant, Bar

The menu is a mixture of traditional Indian food and some other influences.

Vegetarian items are clearly marked; vegan items are not that hard to pick out, except that it's hard to figure out which breads have butter. Note that naan is almost never vegan; ask for tandoori roti instead, without butter or ghee.

A few of the vegan items:
tofu jalfrehzi
chana pindi (chickpeas in a tea-flavored sauce)

They offer takeout also.

This restaurant used to be good, but it changed location, raised its prices by 50%, and made all the dishes a third smaller and slightly worse. They also got rid of a number of the dishes that were vegan, such as their great tomato/coconut-milk soup.

The food is not particularly good now - it's dry and flavorless, and they have messed up all their recipes to make the food look prettier. (The tofu jalfrehzi now has two massive triangular wedges of tofu that have only been cooked on the outside. It's visually striking, I guess, but it doesn't taste that great.)

(There's also a slight undertone of fish smell in the whole place now because they added a whole bunch of fish to the menu.)
