“The Mala Dhara menu changes with the seasons, the harvests and the playful creative juices flowing through our living kitchen. We don’t just accommodate vegetarian and vegan guests with options or alternatives. We prepare vegetarian meals that stand on their own, jump off the plate, vie for your attention and delight your senses. There are no weak tofu dishes, bad lighting, and casual browns. The Mala Dhara Kin Dee Plant Based Vegan Restaurant is not your typical vegetarian restaurant. Come and see for yourself.” -Mala Dhara

*All meals are vegan
