Indian food is long known to be the playground for vegetarians with its love for spices, the various methods of cooking it uses, the very many kinds of vegetables it has and how various parts of India have drastically different kinds of preparations. There may be no better time than now, with it being Navratri, a nine-day festival dedicated to the Goddess of Power when most Indians follow a strictly vegetarian diet. These are some of the fully vegetarian Indian restaurants that have something on offer for you.
Khau Galli: Indian street food is almost always vegetarian. Khau galli (or food street) really focuses on the dishes found on the streets of cities all over India.

Vegan? Why not?
Vegan cuisine is now taking over the world as people see the advantage of turning to a plant-based diet, even if it is for one day a week. Vegan diets as many know, use no animal products at all. So there’s no milk, honey or egg along with no meat or fish.
Seva Table: More a wellness retreat than just a restaurant, Seva table has brought 100% plant-based, gluten free, cane sugar free, and GMOs free food to Dubai vegans and vegetarians since 2014. Check out their burgers and tacos for a dose of yumminess.
