“KAZANA” in Nishinakajima

West Indian vegetarian food is mild, healthy, and really comforting!

For today’s lunch, I went to “KAZANA”, an Indian restaurant in Nishinakajima.
This restaurant, serving home cooked west Indian cuisine, is famous for its meat free vegetarian dishes.

Gujarati Thali Lunch (¥900)
The home cooking that west Indian vegetarians eat each day doesn’t contain any meat!
It gets full marks for quantity, with bean curry, bean stew, samosa chaat, vegetable salad, chapati, saffron rice, and drinks!


Indian bean curry…


So delicious!!
The vegetables had such a rich sweet and umami flavor, followed by a gentle spiciness!


Bean stew…


The beans became even more aromatic once they were in your mouth!


Samosa Chat


The yogurt and juicy vegetables were so refreshing, and they went perfectly with the samosas!





You can really taste the wheat in these moist, soft Chapati!


I had some chai tea after my meal. Maybe it was because I hadn’t eaten any meat, but even though I was really full, I didn’t feel ill – it was just a really pleasant, full feeling.



They don’t only do vegetarian food, there’s plenty of meat dishes too!



The restaurant had great decor, and I was impressed with the light Indian folk (?) music they were playing.
It was a really cozy restaurant!
