Splendid Indian vegetarian with the best Indian sweets

This restaurant is one of my regular haunts. Whilst I am not Indian, I appreciate the subtle flavours of the cuisine and am always encouraged when I find myself one of a very few Caucasian faces in the place. Indians know a good Indian restaurant when they find one! The food is vegetarian and... read more

The food is fantastic and well priced. We went at lunch, which meant the food came out quickly and fresh. I went for the Punjabi plate (4 small curries, 2 roti, a poppadum, rice, natural yoghurt and a rice dessert) at $19.90. My colleagues went for the sizzling platter and a rice specialty (missed the name). Apparently they are better... More

There is a huge variety of items on the menu as well as daily specials and it has been rare to have a meal that wasn't very tasty. We recommend the Masala Dosa, Vegetable Samosa and Pani Puri as our biggest favourites.

Maya Vegetarian is an informal dine in place that serves wonderful and tasty authentic vegetarian food from North and South India. The menu is huge and includes tandoori dishes and dosas - it is difficult to choose what to have! We tried a thali (a good choice if you simply can't choose), a biryani and a dosa - all were...

Good food, very authentic. Good balance of spice, great sweets, and most of all their food is fresh and well prepared. Must go place if one wants to taste good Indian food.

We visited this café style Indian vegetarian restaurant twice in two days on our recent visit to Sydney. The first night we ordered North Indian Thali meals which were good value for money. We did not want Brinjals so it was substituted for Chana. On the 2nd visit two days later, I decided to eat Chana Bhatoora. I specifically requested... More

We ate here on my daughter's Birthday. She chose Indian and the food was excellent. Not the place to go if you are looking for a nice restaurant - this is more like a cafe and very informal. But very good food and great value. Also BYO and no corkage.

This vegetarian Indian restaurant is a virtually an institution on Cleveland Street, Surry Hills. The TV's showing non-stop Bollywood videos are the entertainment to accompany the truly delicious food. There are daily "chaat" specials as well as a great range of Dosas and southern Indian delicacies. The dosa masala, a curried potato contained in a paper thin large rice pancake... More

Maya Sweets is a vegetarian restaurant in Surry Hills, an inner city suburb not far from the Sydney CBD. It offers fresh Indian vegetarian food at a very modest price. Do not confuse it with the non vegetarian Indian restaurants nearby. This is not a place for fine dining, but a large, clean air conditioned cafe. You order food at... More

Best Vegetarian Dosai in Sydney. Fragrant filling in the lightest Dosai.
