(Update: This restaurant has been relocated to the 3rd floor food court at Royal Garden Plaza, Beach Road and Second Road. Will update other details soon). There are perhaps a total of two 100% vegetarian Indian restaurants in Pattaya, both of which are on the 2nd Road which runs parallel to Beach Road. "VT Six (Vegetarian Paradise)" behind Central Festival Mall is the smaller of the two but is on a better location - right behind Central Festival Mall (Read VT Six (Vegetarian Paradise) Review Here - New Tab). "Saras" located at Sun City Hotel (Next to Hotel Siam Bayshore) is a little away from the tourist center but is much larger in terms of seating capacity and food options which include North and South Indian snacks and meals, Tandoori and Chinese, Set Meals (combos and Thali), Chaat Items, beverages including Lassi varieties, desserts and a full scale Indian sweet shop. Saras is like a local sweet shop for the Indian community in Pattaya. (Address and Location details at the bottom of this page). The menu even includes some Thai food but I was told that Thai food was served only in the Bangkok branch of Saras (Sukhumwit Soi 20). (Read more ... See Menu and other pictures below)

The menu is mostly "Chandni Chowk" type but does include some unusual items like Chinese Thali (310 THB) and Daal Bati Churma (250 THB), and Bajre Ki Roti (50 THB). North Indian and Gujarati Thai cost 280 and 310 THB, Tandoori Roti 30 THB, Mutter Paneer 220 THB, Daal Tadka 180 THB, Butter Naan 60 THB, Masala Dosa 105 THB, Idli Sambar 85 THB, Chhola Bhatura 140 THB, Paneer Pakora 125 THB and Tea / Coffee 35 / 45 THB.
I tried Masala Dosa and Assorted Pakora (135 THB) with Tea. Dosa filling was good but sambar not as good as the one I tasted in Madras Darbar (2nd Road behind Central Festival Mall). Vegetable Pakora was perfect served along with Green Chatni. Hot and milky tea was served in a kulhar. I had my Masala Dosa inside the air conditioned area of the restaurant and Pakora & Tea outside in their open-air extension. Fortunately it had rained a little earlier and the cool weather doubled the fun of having Pakora and Tea outdoors.
I can say that Saras in Pattaya will almost entirely succeed in meeting the expectations of Indian tourists looking for "Indian" vegetarian food given the variety of food that they have to offer. I would like to try Saras Chinese Thali and Rajasthani Thali some day. Of course, it would take many many visits there to taste all of what their menu has to offer. I intend to try.
