We owe Steph for pointing out Masti's Vegan Tuesdays to us, and for booking us and a couple of friends in to give it a whirl. It's a set menu, served as a thali, with a wine or soft drink ($39 per person). We were treated to a curled papadum and eensy salad, two curries (which change from week to week), a dal that charmed everyone at the table, saffron rice, and the fluffiest vegan naan I've ever encountered. For dessert, there was a rich and dense scoop of dark chocolate mousse garnished with neon-coloured popping candy (it looks like this gets changed up with fresh fruit on occasion too).

The Masti staff couldn't have been friendlier; eager to share their dishes and hear our feedback. This sample across their menu has us all wanting to return and order more à la carte.


Messy Veggies are already fans of Masti's vegan night.

Accessibility: There's a step up on entry. Furniture is medium-spaced throughout the restaurant, primarily low tables and seats with backs. We paid at a high counter, and didn't visit the toilets.


  1. Is that cucumber and onion the eensy salad?

    1. Hi Susan - yes, that's right! I've come across this before a couple of times in Indian restaurants, and there's a bit of explanation about the practice in this blog post.
