Review by beanmail on November 17, 2010:
- If you are craving Indian food this is not the place for you. If you are afraid of spices, heat, and are looking for healthy food with minimal Indian influence, have at it.
Strike one: The menu is very limited and the waiter was unsure of what items were vegan.
Strike two: No samosas, pakoras, or anything you'd expect to find in an Indian restaurant.
Strike three: no spice, no flavor, no Indian oomph.
The owner was so pleasant that I really, really wanted to like this place. But I really, really didn't.

- I had lunch here and got the Vegan Thali for $7.99, which was perfect. They have an all you can eat thali for $14.99, but I didn't want to eat that much.
The food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely - I liked the colors they chose, and the waitstaff was superhelpful and nice. They knew exactly what was and wasn't vegan, and took the time to assure me (without my asking) that there was no ghee in anything. My dessert was vegan and YUMMY.
They are in the process of making it more Ayurvedic, and next month expect to have an Ayurvedic doctor walking around and recommending food for you, along with Ayurvedic pizza - where they pick toppings intended to work with your health issues. It sounds really cool and I definitely plan to go back.
The one thing that I think may hurt them is that there are so many cheap buffets around the area, but they are different in their focus, and I certainly hope they do well.
