Food and drink
All veggie, largely vegan, and totally tasty, these generously priced bowls are perfect to share among friends. The restaurant is unlicensed but you can bring your own and pay a corkage fee of £1 per person, making a thrifty eating experience even easier on the purse.
The bhel puri is a fantastic start; a crunchy mixture of puffed rice, peas, onion and chutneys, it’s the most luxurious Bombay mix you’ll ever have. Indian cheese, paneer, appears in many of the dishes but works best in their crisp dosa pancakes. Don’t fill up too much, though; their selection of multicoloured barfi cakes is tremendous.
Funky and fun, the Vegetarian Food Studio is a firm favourite with both the student community and families so don’t expect a quiet, secluded meal.
A family run restaurant, the service is laid back and friendly, the owner is always happy to highlight dishes and explain the combination of ingredients.
It’s just tucked away behind the centre in Grangetown, a quick stroll over the Taff and you’re there.
Incredibly cheap. No main dish will cost you more than £6.
