We went on a monday afternoon and this place was almost pack. We saw a lot of family crowd during a weekday for lunch. Coming to the food...the place is very basic, nice, clean environment. The food is served in special utensils (Kasa) which makes it more appealing and tasty. Dal Baati was too good and so was the farsan platter. Lemon Basil drink was also very yum!!!...
The only put off was Pav Bhaji which i feel should be avoided. We should stick to authentic Gujarati / Maradi food and that will be the best. Looking forward to visit this place once again.
This place is easy to find and is right on the main road. It is medium size and is mostly crowded.Place is very clean and decor is pretty nice.Food menu is quite decent and covers GUjju, Marwadi & some south indian dishes as well.The taste is absolutely fabulous. They have recently introduced some low calorie items in their menu.You will love this place if you want to try some authentic gujarati / marwadi food,. Although a little expensive, this place is worth visiting occasionally. Pita pockets, vitamin bhel, fada ni khichdi, dhebra are must try dishes.
Families, vegetarians n foreigners who cant handle street food flock here fr healthy Gujarati food. Granted, d use of ghee (clarified butter) is quite liberal, bt nt all dishes use it that includes the various kinds of chaat (veggie and bread snacks). The spicy potato patties stuffed with peas and smothered in savory yellow dal are highly recommended, as is palak moong dal (yellow lentils sautéed with spinach), vitamin bhel (a light veggie salad), and spinach and cheese samosas. The modern take on classics doesn't deter the locals, and it's likely to be packed, bt you shall soon get a seat amid the pale yellow walls, wooden benches n loud aunties.
Loved it! Delicious wholesome food (low cal versions available), freshly prepared, not overly spicy, portion sizes just right, friendly staff..Tried: Oondhiyo, vitamin bhel, special kichdi, chaas...Loved: Large selection of vegetarian food, copper serving bowls and plates added to the experience.. this eatery has similar dishes like the iconic Swati snacks with some good additions of lots ...A good place for elderly/parents if you want to take them out for nice lunch/dinner..
We have been going to Soam since many years. What I always wonder is how they have managed to keep the standard at high level. They have given truly Gujarat /Rajasthan cuisine with some Bombay dishes thrown in. Service is good unobtrusive, clean cutlery.one must try seasonal food like Undhia with butter milk.A one-stop shop for all kinds of Indian veggie food - street food, north Indian, south Indian, fruit cocktails in one place. Very clean and hygienic. I really loved the Guava juice spiced with pepper.
Soam redefines calmness, spirituality and philosophy of great tasting food~! One feels very pure while entering and expects a great deal from the meal which doesn't disappoint. The farsan platter, vatana pattice, kand na chilla, moong dal chillas, masala fada khichadi and the hand churned apricot icecreams are items you gotta try! Very gujarati-ish tasting food and I'm sure everyone will love it
Great place for family dinners . Have tried almost everything on their menu and none of the items have been disappointing.They have an excellent description of each time on their menu and you can't resist trying them.They also have a special menu in shravan and also a khichdi festival where in I had tried their baked khichdi which was undoubtedly the best khichdi I have tasted in my life. They have a long waiting list post 7.30 pm everyday so you got to be early if you want to avoid it. Also the place is quite noisy , so if you are looking for quiet dinners with a wide spread on the menu,this isn't that place. The service is prompt . Overall definitely worth a try!
We went here with my in-laws who have pure Jain food only and everyone loved the place. The wife and I had been here before during their Khichdi festival and we couldn't wait to go again. So when this opportunity came to gorge once more we did not miss it. We went on a Saturday and since they dont do any reservations on weekend we were looking to wait for a half hour at least. Surprisingly on reaching the place we got a table within less than 5 mins, lucky we guess. We all the usual fare - the Pankhis, the Thali peeth, the handvo - everything was top notch. The methi-gota was recommended to us by our server and it turned out to be so good that we ordered it twice more. The best dish for the day for me was the kanda-batata nu sak with bhakri. The bakhri was crisp as a toast and quite delicious. The fresh sugarcane juice - a unique affair for restaurants - takes a hell lot of time to prepare so order it in advance but definitely do not miss it. Even after eating our heart n stomachs content the total for the four of was well within INR 2000 which is quite reasonable for such a place. Be warned though, even though they have valet parking it tends to get quite crowded over the weekend and if the valets are sparse then you might have to park the car yourself, which is not that easy since this place if located bang opp the Babulnath temple.?
I recently visited soam and though I have always been a regular in their restaurant I noticed that their quality has dropped to quite an extent. I use to relish their puran poli with kadi , their turiya dish and malpuas but recently I was quite disappointed as the puran polis were not fresh, were very rubbery. Turiya dish was not made well and the malpua was not cooked properly . They were too rubbery as well. I do like though their ambiance, quality of service and the list of items on their menu but quality has definitely dropped.
Located in a posh neighborhood this pure vegetarian restaurant is tucked away on the ground floor. A 10 minute walk from Grant Road Station.
As with most good restaurants there is a waiting time of approx 20-30 minutes on weekends here. The overall ambiance of the restaurant is authentic/ traditional style..there are pots of pickles etc above to give that look and feel. Best to eat the gujrati and rajasthani cuisines here, the south Indian ones are just about okay.Must try is the Farsan platter - you get 3-4 starters served in authentic thalis gives it an extra effect.
You have a lot of options to chose from here in all varities of dishes, my personal favorite is the paneer makai pulao. They also have a low cal section here. The service was quick and also the food served was hot and the waiters were helpful as well.Overall a good experience here.
