Good Vegetarian Options
Tawa is a traditional flat stove used in India on the streets, at home, in restaurants as the core of Indian cooking which is why it forms the basis of Tawa Kitchen's dishes.

At Tawa, what we're trying to promote is wellness inside and out. We take the ayurvedic principle of balance in body and mind and apply this to our cooking. Tawa kitchen moves away from the format of stereotypical India restaurants serving heavy dishes concentrating on curry and rice. What we eat at home and what we will offer at Tawa, is largely plant-based nutritious and created to fuel you your day.

Food was amazing, the service was excellent. I can't really comment on the ambience as we were having a early meal just after it opened.

Every element of our evening was first class, the staff were lovely and very keen and interested in talking to their customers, the food was the most flavoursome we have had in a long time and tasted so fresh. It was one of the best meals I have had out in a long time, would highly recommend

The food has a home cooked look about it. Well presented, very tasty, quite different in a very good way to most "Indian" restaurants in Cambridge, interesting menu. Have already planned return visit with friends.

Great food, great service. Not your normal Indian food. Perfect if you've outgrown mainstream Indian restaurants

A hidden gem in Cambridge. I would highly recommend to everyone! The gluten free options are insane and the food is delicious. Best curry in Cambridge!

Unusually good food and service on a rainy stormy night. Dhal in particular was incredible. Felt like a really authentic place and reminded us of our travels in Kerala

Delicious but healthy and filling. Not too spicy! All 6 of our party loved the place and would return! Great for lunch but also for dinner as they have some good wines and the staff are very attentive and accommodating (but not too fussy/formal). Tucked away so you wouldn't necessarily know it was there, would describe it as a modern but cosy cafe by day and restaurant by night.

Food was great.. but no social distancing measures in place. Tables were dangerously close to each other.

Staff didn’t had a clue about my Open table booking.

Waiting staff didn’t have much product knowledge on the Drinks menu.

Would recommend only after the covid restrictions are gone.

Absolutely delicious vegan Indian food in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The food tasted fresh and healthy (not much oil) and the spices and flavours were spot on. We were in a large group so we ordered all the vegan options and can attest to them all being delicious! Our servers were also very helpful and friendly, and we felt secure that the restaurant was COVID-secure (servers and cooks were all wearing masks and hand sanitiser was readily available).

In terms of improvements, it would be great to have a more varied drinks menu (vegan lassis would be AMAZING) and a vegan dessert. It would also be a good idea to offer a thali option for smaller groups. Overall we really enjoyed our visit, thank you Tawa Kitchen!
