We know it sounds ridiculous for a lot of people to be going out for a meal and ordering vegetarian.
But trust us there is a lot to it too! We are not talking about the obvious choices, that our parents are extremely and illogically loyal to but the others that have emerged over time! Those times at home when you are restricted from eating non-veg or the times when you’re feeling adventurous, or for those who are vegetarians; here’s a list of the best places to have a vegetarian meal at its best
From Chole Bhature to the North Indian Thali to Raj Kachori, the food you get here is somewhat lavish. Even though they are South Indian snacks like dosa and idli on the menu, it’s the Northie fare that is the best. Also, they offer multi-cuisine veg lunch and dinner at the restaurant upstairs.

It is the Best Vegetarian restaurant, because of its constant upgrades and improvisation of the menu, keeping both popular and discerning choices in mind. While decor continues to be minimalist, there have been a few renovations of late. One includes doing away with their mocktails counter, thereby making space for a bigger desserts salads spread for their popular buffets, and another, by improving acoustics so that the busy buzz of noisy diners is kept to a minimum.
This place has been serving for over six decades now and still going strong. The South Indian tiffin, which you can get as early as 7 in the morning, is quite popular. The Button Idli-the bite-sized idlis that are dunked in a bowl of sambar- is a great fare to go with the classic South Indian filter coffee. The food is good but it is also economically priced.
Rotis is a great place for good vegetarian fare that is not just a thali. It has seemingly taken a lot of care in designing their interiors - with its ambient lighting, well-arranged seating and cosy dining area. The menu has Indian, Chinese, Mexican and a bit of Italian cuisine to please one and all. Service staff is always on their toes to attend the customers. Dragon Chilli Mushroom, Veg Lahori, Veg Maharaja, Assorted Rotis Basket, and Fried Ice Cream are dishes you must try.

Dwaraka is a hugely popular joint having two sections. One is the meal section that has regular South Indian dishes, but all highly enjoyable. The other is the meal section where you get authentic Andhra dishes on a plantain leaf. One thing special about the place is that they serve more than thirty varieties of dosas.
