Vegetarian Indian Cuisine

Nataraj is an upscale, all-vegetarian Indian restaurant that offers a good variety of vegan dishes. Apparently PETA voted them one of the top 5 veg restaurants in Asia and a Tokyo magazine agreed with them.

They offer many traditional dishes like vegetable curry, chana masala, tikka masala, along with appetizers like vegetable pakoras, samosas, and soups. They also have a vegan pumpkin pudding dessert. Their chapatti and roti are vegan, but the naan has butter. You can order vegan naan but have to place the order a day in advance.

They offer lunch buffets, and dinner sets or individual entrees at dinner time. Entrees run about 1200-2000 yen, while the dinner sets are about 5000-6000 yen. Soup and dessert are about 700 yen.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated with fancy furniture, statues, and a fountain in the middle of the dining area.

The restaurant is fairly small so the smoking section runs into the non-smoking section.

Very good food but WAY overpriced. I would give the food a 10, but you can get food that's nearly as good for a fraction of the price. Their lentil and garlic soup is delicious, as is their chana masala and tofu/veggie curry. I also had the pumpkin pudding, which was good, but not great.

The restaurant is beautiful but it was really frustrating to be in the "non-smoking" section and be sitting 10 feet from a bunch of smokers.
