Tucked into a corner along the same row of stores as Café Cena, Sukh Sagar is a good place to enjoy Indian cuisine with a difference. The most notable thing is all the dishes served here have no meat, making it ideal for vegetarians or for those that want a change from the typical dishes served at most Indian restaurants.
While it is listed as one of their starters, their Masala Dosa is actually generous enough to serve as a main meal for one. The rice crepe was light and crisp with the spicy potato filling having the right amount of spice. Served with the dish were some lentil curry and fresh coconut chutney to balance out the spiciness.

The Burani Baigan served here is somewhat similar to a dish offered at Taj Tandoor but with the eggplant seemingly pan-fried instead of deep-fried. The eggplant still had the bite to it and its flavour was enhanced by the topping of ginger yoghurt, tamarind chutney and tomato jam. A sprinkling of toasted coconut added texture to the dish.

One of the various curries that can be ordered, the chickpeas in the Chana Masala were cooked just right with the curry gravy helping to bring out their flavour. The degree of spiciness of the dish is quite mild, making it ideal for those that are not used to spicy foods.

Great for accompanying their curries, their Garlic Naan had the crisp and fluffy texture we expected with a garlicky flavour from the roasted garlic spread on the naan. Aside from their naans, the restaurant also offers raita, Basmati Rice and papadums that can be ordered as side dishes to their main dishes.

Ambience of the place is that of a small café with the tables spaced a good distance apart from each other. A decent amount of off-street parking is available in the carpark in front of the restaurant.
We dined there today, it was very good. Worth mentioning is the fact that it is easily accessible for wheelchair users, and one is unlikely to get tangled in chairs either coming or going- quite a relief! The food is very enjoyable, we live in an area where it is hard to get a dosa, so this place is a great find for me, and the eggplant dish is awesome.
Thank you Jonathan: love your work!
