Vegetarian Friendly

Virtually every item, whether a curry, kebab, or dessert, is available in a vegetarian option. Many vegan options are also available, and you can request any dish to suit any special dietary needs. The Indian cuisine is rich in vegetarian dishes and there is a rich history of vegetarianism in India. Ancient Indian law (Manu Smriti) even recommended vegetarianism as a way of life stating “There is no sin in eating meat… but abstention brings great rewards.” This rich history produced a vast fare of vegetarian Indian dishes, the best of which are hand-picked and refined at Curry and Kebab House to suit all of your dietary needs.
