Considering the large number of people we cook for, as well as the very wide variety of food allergies/preferences, we unfortunately are NOT able to provide for special dietary needs. This includes vegan, dairy, gluten, lactose and wheat allergies.
Bear in mind that this is India, and supplementary goods that may be easily available where you live are either non-existent or very expensive here.
Please don't put us in the position of saying no by asking for special arrangements.
To help you to decide whether you will be able to eat the food offered at Tushita, here is some more information about our all-vegetarian meals: some of our dishes contain wheat, dairy, nuts, soy or other ingredients which may cause allergic reactions in some people, and occasionally baked products may contain eggs. Almost all of our dishes contain at least a small amount of oil, spices, salt and/or sugar.
For those who would like to take the Eight Mahayana Precepts, our meals will usually not contain 'black foods' (meat, fish, eggs, onions, garlic and radishes), so they are 'precept safe'. Those dishes which do contain these ingredients will be labeled.
