Description: Soul Kitchen, The Gentle taste of India“Sammasati” was the most frequent invitation that Gautama the buddha loved to give to his disciples:“remember have awoken!” And we at Buddha Soul propose, in our small way, to reawaken your palates trought the thousands of indian cooking aromas that echo the colours of this magical land.Buddha Soul revisits the most typical indian recipies concentrating in their taste the hundreads subcultures that influence the dishes of this extrordinary country.The “Thali” for example, that you find in Madurai will never be as the Bombay’s thali;The Malai Kofta (Malai: cream and yougurt, Kofta: potato and cheese balls) prepared at Goa it’s really different to the Varanasi’s Malai Kofta, as well the “Dhal”(red lentil soup) that forms one of the basic foods for indians, differs notably by just moving few kilometres!Our choice has been to balance spices and chilly, to meet the cosmopolitan clientele, not just venetian or indians, trying to not betray the bold spirit of indian cooking, with its unique combination of vegetables, oily seeds, innumerable masalas, curry and sauces of pronounced flavour.Buddha Soul as seeker of taste has created the menu “Not just India” proposing classic italian recipes like spaghetti with tomatoes sauce and fresh basil, but also experiencing the flavors of the Near East with the Tabule and FalafelFor the natural completion of our journey it wasn’t possible to overlook the vegetarian and macrobiotic cuisines,so here the borning of dishies like the Seitan Vietnam, the Tofu Mon Amour or the Kamut Rainbow pasta to meet the needs and the appreciating of our vegetarian or vegan Υ costumers.

There are not so many authentic Asian restaurants around parts of Europe. I went he with my two kids, The Thalis were not entirely authentic as in South India but not bad to sample a few dishes. Would recommend as a change from Italian

Brilliant service, great food. The curry is really nice with spices. Was well looked after in Lido venice. Well worth having the curry here. Glad i went along with great reviews of selecting this place.

We ate here on the 9th August our 6th night on the lido. We found the staff to be lovely and friendly unlike a lot of other places. The service we had was great and the food was amazing.

We enjoyed our meal (a thali for me , and a prawn curry for my wife) and also found the service friendly and efficient. We would certainly recommend this place and it was competitively priced and not surprisingly full of contented customers.
The friendly owner who was waiting on table even apologised to us when we left for not having more time to chat with us because the place was so busy. Such a contrast to the rudeness and poor food we had experienced in nearby Bio Sound System Bistrot.

The food was not bad here but everything fell flat for me. I suppose I have high Indian food standards. I would say this is probably more along the lines of healthy Indian based food, good but did not hit the spot. It was actually the most disappointing Indian I have had in Europe or the States, so go here looking for healthy eats and you will not be disappointed. The service was good and the restaurant is very nice.
