Amazing vegan food. We had both the specials. The curry of day which was a coconut Keralan curry. And the Nepalese dumplings on a broccoli gratin with roti. They were both amazing! Would definitely go back. I wish hey would open up in Auckland!

It's just always so delicious here, and the food is incredibly fresh. Eating vegetarian food like this feels "clean", healthy and wonderful.
