Cute organic restaurant

We have experienced this restaurant twice, one day just an afternoon coffee with a desert and on another day a lunch meal. The deserts are very good. The meal itself are well presented with a little taste of India but they are good as well, even for a non vegetarian like me.

Elegantly prepared vegetarian food that will please the meat-eaters too. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy great people-watching.

Visited this cafe today with my family. Tried their Russian cuisine, the soup being the best. Mr.Dilraj on knowing that we are from his home country went out of the way and made us some Indian specialities which were absolutely fantastic. Very friendly staff and a cozy environment with a separate play-entertainment area for kids.

It proved wonderful, so we came back for lunch (yesterday) on our next trip, and booked a table there and then for dinner too! Menu offers plenty of interesting choices; food is excellent; and the atmosphere nice. (Though as in many other restaurants... More

Small and cozy place that seems to care about vegetarianism and their food a lot. I enjoyed my indian meal which was carefully prepared and delicious. Was there for lunch so it was quiet. Server was very young and shy, but nice and neither subtracted nor added to the meal. Menu and food great. Atmosphere good and service good too.... More

Came here for dinner one night but decided on going to Pelot next door instead. Which wasn't a bad choice at all. Should also try that restaurant. Reason being is Botanika offered more Indian inspired dishes for dinner and I had Indian food at Tandoor the night before. With that, I returned for breakfast the following day. They offer a...

The food was ready very quickly, and tasted very good too. The place has a nice laid back atmosphere, and a large range of vegetarian dishes to choose from. It also has wifi. Original compared to other restaurants in the neighbourhood.

I was here also about 4 years ago. I am very happy that the restaurant is still there. The ambiance is great, food is very good, staff is friendly and speaks English. Loved it again.
