I'd be a regular if this was in my hometown. Had the radha special (choice of 2 dahl, choice of 3 rice, cauliflower/potato/pea or squash/tofu, choice of 3 chutneys, kofka and a salad for &12.99. I also had a in house kombucha for $4.99. It was satisfying, filling, tasty and nutritious.

Hello Lola, thank you for the wonderful review! Unfortunately we can't take credit for the kombucha, that is made by my friend Lavinia at Kootenay Kombucha. Check her out online for places to refill growlers! More

I've eaten here every time I visit Nelson and completely love this place. The food is consistently fresh and spiced perfectly. When you eat their food it feels like every bite is filled with healthy nutrition and vitality. I always leave feeling happy and very satiated.

If we lived here we would become regulars of this place. The service is cafeteria style, but the food is very tasty and the value is very good. We were pleasantly surprised at the quantity of food but also by the quality. The flavours were very nice; not overly spicy, but with a hint of heat. We each had different... More

Nutrition plays a factor in dish composition with whole grains, nuts and pulses featuring prominently in the ingredients. Gluten free options are available to the sensitive. Many thanks to a sensitive and... More

We were there for lunch and shared the wrap - huge, tasty and really filling! Also ordered the veggie pakora but the only filling was potato as that was the only veg they had on hand that day. They were tasty but would have definitely been better with some additional veg in it.

Hey Donna, Thanks for the great review! I will be sure to do my best to ensure there is cauliflower or another veggie for the Pakoras in the future. Thanks again! More

We shared their meal deal that included nearly of their dishes, it was very good, indian influenced flavours, vast amount of food at a good price. This is not a fancy restaurant but if you want a good, tasty, cheap meal come here. Helpful staff explained the various options. recommended.

We visited Nelson in early May to be married. Arriving in town a day early so that we could finalize some details, we were looking for a place to have lunch when we came upon Jagannatha. We were so happy we decided to dine there! Hugo helped us order lunch (we had a Krishna plate to share) and the food... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. It was our first time to visit and the lady who served us was so helpful to explain everything to us and to recommend something that we may like. And she did awesome because our supper was delicious. it's a cute cafe style place and I would definitely recommend it.

Had lunch here today with a friend. I was very pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. It was all new to me for flavours but I will return again and try some of the other menu items. The staff was so friendly and I liked the atmosphere for a nice lunch.
