Great food, phenomenal service, and free wifi. What more could you want from a lunch place?
I came here because I was told that this is one of the few places in Munich where one can find southern Indian food. Well, the restaurant doesn't specialise in southern Indian food per se, as they offer northern dishes as well, but I still feel like I did something right with my Sunday by coming here.
I was famished and looking for vegetarian options (part of my recent healthy eating initiative). The menu here clearly presents not just vegetarian but also vegan options.
I ordered the dal palak and the person I was with had the myore dal.
At first, I was a little doubtful that I'd leave full. I'm a guy who usually finishes other's people's food, and the bowls they brought out to serve us our dishes and our rice just didn't cause any "wow" effect in terms of size. I did indeed deep into the myore dal, but out of lust, not hunger!
The seasoning was great. So savory, so complex, each spoonful enticing me on to the next until that cruel moment where I was faced with the choice of 1) licking my bowl clean or 2) abiding by the convention of not licking restaurant bowls clean and accepting the fact that all good things must come to an end. I ended up deciding somewhere in the middle.
The prices here are great, and in the end I really appreciate that they bring out a reasonable amount of rice instead of a pile big enough to play hide-and-seek in. It made me think and wonder how much rice other Indian restaurants end up wasting as a result of extravagance.
The atmosphere here is super relaxed, and not at all like the fancy dining experiences that most Indian restaurants offer. I like that. It means I can enjoy my food at a great price and not have to worry which fork I'm using. Central location right near Isartor makes this a no-brainer - I'll definitely be coming here again!
7 euros for a lunch special? I'm there. It was just what the doctor ordered after spending way too much time past lunch at the Deutsches Museum. We also had some papadums on the side. Finally don't be afraid of asking them to up the spice level on your dish. By default it is fairly mild.
Beware, if you're feeling like water, you might as well order a Mango Lassi here: it's cheaper. Then swing by the DM and get a water later.
Worth it for the lunch special. During lunch hours (11:30-3:00PM) you can get certain main dishes for just 5.50-6.50EUR. We had the chicken curry for 5.50 and and a spicy masala dish for 6.50. Only downside was that both dishes tasted exactly the same so I didn't quite get what the price difference was for. The food tasted great though and I think that you won't get a better deal than that anywhere in Munich where even lunch "specials" costs 9EUR+ most of the time. Though I would have loved for our food to have the variety of flavor to it that we all know and love from Indian restaurants, I can not complain about the quality. Definitely worth a try, especially for such a low price. The reason why it only gets 3 stars from me is because of one more additional criticism: we walked in and didn't get served until we had to make ourselves noticed by the chef. The restaurant was pretty empty and the server was nowhere to be found. The chef was very sweet but didn't speak German or English so he didn't know what we wanted. Once our server appeared, we were seated. But he took forever to bring us menus and then to take our orders too. It is not that big of a deal but the restaurant was empty so it was a little weird why he would disappear so often.
No need to whip out the check book for this one, its good and its cheap. I am always looking for something cheap and delicious... I mean aren't we all?! I usually go with friends, about 3 of us all together... and 2 currys always suffice. Add a little Naan bread and a Mango Lassi. Winner. Its small but big enough to find a seat. The waiters are always helpful and its pretty relaxed. I'm definitely into this place, have a try, don't miss out.
Perfect for cheap Indian food without breaking the bank. Eat in or takeaway at Indian Mango, food is handmade fresh to order in their open kitchen and their service is excellent. They'll adjust the spiciness of the food to suit you if you ask them, always a bonus in spice-phobic Munich. Great location too, and their EUR5 lunch special is a wonderful magical thing.
Das erste was man wissen muss: das ist nicht ein Restaurant. Die Atmosphäre, die Einrichtung, die allgemeine Stimmung ist nicht was man bei einem edlen Restaurant gewöhnt ist. Da ist man hier ganz falsch.
Aber ist man auf der Suche nach einem angenehmen Örtchen zum zusammen sitzen und was leckeres essen, wo der Chef einem persönlich grüßt, manchmal auch selber bedient und sogar ein angenehmes Gespräch anbietet, wo Geschmack, freundlichen und schnellen Service, Wohlfuhlfaktor, Sauberkeit und einen günstigen Preis viel wichtiger ist als die üblichen Feinheiten eines Restaurants, dann ist man hier genau richtig. Pro:
Für mich war hier sehr angenehm. Für einen Inder echt günstig, aber nicht auf Kosten der Qualität von Essen. Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass es auch für Studenten sehr interessant sein könnte. Contra: leider nicht geeignet für ein Business Essen oder ähnliches. Es ist eher Wirtshaus Atmosphäre als Restaurant. Nicht viel Platz. Und die offene Küche bietet regt den Appetit alleine mit den Gerüchen, aber falls jemand was scharfes bestellt, dann muss man auch mit tränen und hustenanfall kämpfen. Für mich waren die Contras nicht so schlimm. Ich würde sehr gerne wieder gehen.
