upscale Indian restaurant

The menu has a page of vegetarian entrees toward the back. Quite a few of these entrees are vegan. The food is a bit pricier than other Indian restaurants in the area, but the portions are much bigger and they come with free appetizers and saffron rice (which can be refilled).

As previously said, very hip and stylish decor. I've been here several times and had different entrees each time. The service is fantastic and are always willing to accomodate. You can ask for the naan without butter, the ones I've had were fantastic. Nothing on the menu is marked vegan, but we usually ask to make sure it will be.

The Aloo Matar Gobhi, Mumbai aloo, Baingan Bharta, Mushroom Do Pyaza are wonderful (the last two are my absolute favorites). I often bring home leftovers with the saffron rice, so tasty!

Really a classy place, but a fair bit out of the way from central Tucson.

Been here twice, first time for an incredible surprise birthday dinner thrown for me and the second was a casual lunch. First time, I was immediately impressed by the beautiful and exotic decor. Very modern, very hip. Ordered off the menu and while I can't remember exactly what I got (too many delicious cocktails ordered for me, oops) I do remember that it was vegan and I enjoyed it. Second time, my dining companion and I chose the lunch buffet. Yum! Out of 4 veggie options, the server assured me 2 were vegan. While thats not a lot there was also basmati rice and a fresh tossed salad. I didn't ask about the bread although that *might* have been option as well. Anyways it was plenty of food and tasted great. A fairly good value as well considering its all you can eat, and I must say a nicer presentation than most buffets (won't name names haha)
