Cute place that cares

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.

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.

I found the service, food and the atmosphere to be excellent. The setting was cozy, warm and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is accustom to vegetarian fare who wants a step up from the funky vibe many vegetarian restaurants offer.
