All-veg North and South Indian

The Vegetarian offers both North and South Indian cuisine, with many vegan options. All of the vegan items are clearly marked on the menu, and the breads, though not marked vegan, can be made vegan on request.

On weekends, they offer a lunch buffet from 11-2.

*update* its closed now. Now I gotta look for a good iindian restaurant in minneapolis again. Food went downhill here, I got sick too. Now to start looking again. Nala pak, dancing ganesha, delights of india were all medioce(delights was bad, actually, tasted like breakfast cereal). Goodbye veg, hoping you reopen somewhere, and clean up the kitchen!

Great food. I rarely eat inside, mostly get to-go food which is always quickly accommodated. Nothing is ever plain here. The rice will actually have whole cinnamon sticks and whole cardamon in it, unlike other Indian restaurants where you just get white rice. Could be cleaner inside or more inviting.

They recently had a fire and have not yet re-opened. Went to a different Indian Restauraunt up on central and had a terrible experience, making me miss this place all the more. Try it if you haven't, if you have, go back once they re-open and support them. Good Indian food needs to thrive in this city. I've never had bad food here.

Haven't had the buffet, not a buffet person.
