Indian Veg. Restaurants in Philadelphia


When it comes to Indian vegetarian only food, Philadelphia offers limited choice.

For some odd reasons vegetarian brands like Saravanaa Bhavan, Udipi or Woodlands have not set up the shop in greater Philadelphia region.

A few years back Bensalem was home to two vegetarian restaurants - Sukh Sagar and Uduppi Dosa House.

Sukh Sagar used to peddle yummy Gujarati food and sweets (Mohan Thal and Shaam Savera) while Uduppi was popular for its tangy South Indian rasam, spicy Avial and crisp dosas.

But unfortunately both pulled down their shutters.

So it is tough luck, if you are one of those Indians who want to eat vegetarian food due to religion, caste or palate or may not be willing to dine at restaurants that serve both meat and vegetarian food.

Some of these Philadelphia Indian Vegetarian restaurants serve both South Indian items like Idly, Vada, Sambar, Chapathi, Avial, Masala Dosa, Pongal, Tamarind Rice as well as North Indian delicacies like Paneer Makhani, Alu Mutter, Navratan Kurma, Malai Kofta, Punbabi Chole, Kadi, Bhel Puri, Samosa Chaat and Gujarati Undhia and so on.

These vegetarian restauratns offer thali, buffet meals and a la carte menu.
