We now live in Nelson BC and I can tell you - it is a haven for vegetarians. This spot has fresh food, great service and a lovely atmosphere to eat in. We do lunch often here.

This is such a nice place! Quality food conscious and vegetarian. All the dishes are well thought and adapt Indian meals to the western world in a nice and traditional way.

This is the best tasting food I've had since moving to Western Canada 2 years ago. I realized as I was eating that I had forgotten what good food tasted like.

Pros: delicious food, lovely, helpful, patient service, pleasant, calm, relaxed atmosphere.

Coms: I don't live close enough to partake often enough, they're closed on sundays.

I came across this excellent vegetarian bistro a few years ago through a friend's recommendation. I ordered a bowl that had everything in it. A few years passed while I was away living in Victoria. I recently came back to joyfully eating here once again. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. I explained my previous experience with the bowl and he recommended the Krishna bowl (I probably spelt it wrong). It was delicious. I do not know what I ate but I know it was clean, flavourful, interesting, and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend to non-vegetarians and vegetarians alike. I understand how many non-vegetarians scoff at vegetarian dishes but this is vegetarian done right. Do take the opportunity to find this gem in Nelson and enjoy some natural flavours.
