The Vegetarian Food Studio is a family run restaurant catering for vegan and vegetarian, and is a great experience for meat eaters like myself.
The restaurant specialises in the Thali, a steel plate on which food is served in India. A Thali meal is tasty and balanced comprising a starter, main and sweet.
On a recent visit with two friends one had an nut allergy and once we told the waiter he advised us ’no problem, we can do glutton free as well’.
I chose the glutton free one, the bread came made from chickpea rather then wheat flour, i asked for tamarind sauce to add to the flavours.
For those not used to spicy flavours order the the delicious sweet mango lassi drink with your food.
The Vegetarian Food Studio is a great place to sample authentic Gujarati and South Indian cuisine.
Part of the charm for me is the decor with images of Hindu mystics and gods and the colourful deli for takeaway.
The restaurant has moved a few doors from the original site and is now with more space. Prices have remained the same, a thali for under £10.
For a meat Thali (Panjabi & North Indian) try Bristol’s ‘Thali’ Cafe
