Indian in Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep)

Usually packed with visiting Indians, this back-to-basics, fast-and-furious thatched shack stars such pure-veg delights as tandoori mushrooms, vegetable biryanis (steamed-rice dish), channa (chickpea) masala and spicy-potato-stuffed paratha (flaky bread made with ghee and cooked on a hotplate).

It's signposted down a path just off the main road.
