Enjoy the rich aroma by mixing the various kinds of curries made of organic ingredients
“TADKA” is serving an authentic southern Indian curries. You may feel comfortable with relaxing atmosphere inside of the restaurant. What we liked the most was that they are very careful about choosing the high quality and safe ingredients. They use pesticide-free and organic ingredients and purchase seasonable vegetables from trusted greengrocers and farmers. As beans and spices are all from India, you must be experiencing the rich aroma in your curries. Interestingly, southern Indian curry is ...moreusually mixed all together with rice, so you may enjoy the different flavors at the same time in your mouth! They serve set menu for lunch and a la carte for dinner.

1Must Eat !
Special lunch / ￥1,450
6 kinds of curries such as DAL TADKA, TOMATO RASAM and SAMBHAR would come along with Roti, an Indian Subcontinent flat bread, pickled vegetables and rice. We recommend that you eat by an authentic manner- mixing all together with curries and rice! You may like the texture and flavor of rice as Japanese rice and aromatic Thai rice are blended. Curries are not so spicy but you may enjoy the different kinds of spices imported from India. We suggest that you put some Roti to the mixed curry so that ...moreyou can enjoy different texture.
2Must Eat !
"A" lunch (vegetarian) / ￥900
Curries are changed every day. Today’s special was DAL TADKA, the bean curry, TOMATO RASAM, the tomato pepper curry and SABZI, potatoes and cauliflower’s pepper fry. You may enjoy 3 kinds of curries both with rice and naan as they have different textures. TOMATO RASAM is our favorite as spices and herbs's flavor spread in your mouth richly. DAL TADKA and SABZI are not spicy but rather have mild and sweet tastes which are well balanced with the spicy TOMATO RASAM.
