Prashad in Constantia has just celebrated its 1st birthday, so Bae and I went along to enjoy a lil’ celebration to mark the occasion.
Since becoming vegan, Prashad has become my go-to restaurant when I’m in the mood for Indian food. Their vegan offerings have always left the happy conundrum of “what shall I choose?” and I’ve always found their food to be consistent across all branches (Kloof St, Rondebosch).
Their Constantia branch also has a shop with all of your store cupboard essentials from grains and sauces to spices and even frozen goods to create your own Indian feast!
We started off with a selection of small bites like the Potato and Soya Mince Samosas, which were light and crispy, the Potato Vada, a carb-comforting morsel, and the Tofu and Spinach Spring Rolls. All were delicious!
After a bit of a breather, a selection of curries (Vegan Korma, Vegan Butter Chicken and Toku Kadai) were served along with the Vegetable Biryani and the new Vegan Tikka with Masala Chips!
It was an excellent selection to truly showcase what they can offer their vegan clientele. The sauces with the curries were thick and creamy, and all of the dishes were seriously packed with flavour. I can predict the Tikka and Chips being a firm future favourite! All of it was complimented with Garlic Naan and Paratha Breads.
I somehow (I always somehow) managed to find room for a chocolate cupcake to finish off!
There was nothing average about this food. Prashad is a damn good restaurant that offers excellent value for money, easy parking, great service and delicious food.
