Saag Aloo

Saag aloo is a filling potato-based curry cooked in homemade creamed spinach and seasoned with fresh spices. Packed with hearty potatoes and nutrient-rich spinach, this is a well-rounded meal to try for lunch or dinner!


This dish warms the soul, especially when eaten over rice or with some of our fresh naan — or both! Daal is a dish of lentils cooked with onion, garlic, ginger, tomato, and fresh spices until it turns into a thick sauce.

Paneer Karahi

We offer several variations of karahi, including a paneer karahi. Paneer is a non-melting cheese, making it a great option for vegetarians who want plenty of texture in their food. Our karahi is a fragrant dish that is prepared in an onion and tomato-based gravy and topped with cilantro, sliced ginger, and jalapeno peppers. This dish is warm, spicy, and perfect for when you are looking for a heavier, filling meal.

Shahi Paneer

Another paneer dish, shahi paneer is a paneer curry cooked in a creamy tomato sauce with butter and mild spices. While paneer karahi is a little on the spicy side, shahi paneer has a more mild and almost sweet flavor.

Peshawari Chole

Originating from the Punjab, Peshawari chole is spicy and flavorsome, made with chickpeas that are cooked with onion, garlic, ginger, and tomato until it has a thick and saucy consistency.

Vegetable Biryani

We offer three types of biryani, one of which is vegetarian-friendly. Our vegetable biryani is a mixed rice dish cooked with lots of fresh vegetables and Pakistani spices and served with our mouthwatering cilantro-mint chutney along with a cucumber-tomato raita.

And More!

These dishes are just the beginning of our vegetarian-friendly meals we offer. From hearty potatoes to fresh paneer to protein-packed lentils and chickpeas, we offer dishes to fit every taste and preference.
