I came in here to eat some lunch and it was about 2:30. I knew the place did not have a menu and you ordered the daily offerings. The owner stared at me and asked me if I wanted a menu. When I said no, he seemed somewhat pleased. By the way, there was no one else in the restaurant. The food, like I said was kinda bland and expensive for what you get. When I paid, as I was leaving the owner said "Next time, don't come so late, cause we like to close by 3."

Pros: Food wasn't bad- I think owner means well

Cons: Food wasn't that good either- bland.

We ordered food from this place for my father-in-laws birthday party. We walked in Vatica and were called dogs! Someone that works at the place thought it was funny to call customers dogs wearing Georgia sweatshirts. Upon finding out my wife graduated from Georgia and went to law school, he called my wife a "liar, not a lawyer!!!!!!!" On top of the rude service, the food was terrible. Palaak Panner and Eggplant was awful. I am not saying that because of the rude service. $80 for two half trays! Insane! I would have walked out if we did not have so many people coming to the party.
In these tough economic times, why waste your money on bad food and really, really, rude service.
I give this place an F on every level!

Really good Indian food. We visits every month or so for dinner. It is a set menu, and it is a little different every time and always good. Our plate is always refilled and we never leave hungry. The location isnt the prettiest though I dont mind it. The price may seem high, but truly Indian food is always expensive and this is all you can eat of 5 to 6 different dishes. I like the variety. The owner always remembers us and is really funny. I recommend this place to anyone who wants great food and service and not concerned about the looks of the place.

This place is a great one to go for lunch--it's near my boyfriend's work and I often meet him here. The thalis are excellent and everything is always fresh.

As a vegetarian, it's great to be able to go out for lunch and have something besides a green salad. As a fan of Indian food, I'm not terribly impressed by Vatica. In the year or so I've been a regular, I've gotten very bored with the rather bland, mushy food and lack of variety. Rice, soup, potato curry, dal, vegetable, bread and raita...it never changes. In addition, I've clearly been pegged as a two-thali customer. After the second refill I've literally continued to sit for an hour while conversing, and no additional refill has been offered. Since about 2 oz of each item is provided with each refill, and since this is often my main meal, it's really not worth the $12 to me. There are restaurants that I look forward to patronizing and restaurants that will do for an okay meal everyone can live with. This is definitely one of the latter.

I had gone there with 10 of my friends ...we were really hungry and were craving fr some traditional indian food ...Vatica was a real bad experience....the mananger /owner was really weird and sacrsatic ..clearly not intreasted or ready fr 10 ppl or i guess was ready to call of the day
FOOD was really bad...the only thing i liked was carrot pickel .No taste what so ever and the service wasnt that great either .
NEEDS real Improvement with FOOD , Decor , Attitute and service.

I went a couple of days back. The place smells bad. The staff is funny. They lack social courtsies. The food is the biggest problem. We had a bill of 12 dollars per person. I am not ready to pay such a price for this quality of thali (predetermined menu) in newyork city or sfo also.
I am a yogic food cook in the US and appreciate simple food. This food is simply cooked but without any interest. It is a money minting exercise. I could have opened 50 such restaurants till date if it were for money. Ethics and pricing in this business play an important role. This guy does not believe in that.

Pros: parking

To who all visit this so called vegeterian indian restaurant, the place looks shabby and dull. The furnitures are broken.. The whole atmosphere is utter mess and not at all friendly. This is one of the poorest Indian restaurant where in you will find the worst of Indian food. The hospitality is also the worst, The female who comes to serve sabzi for second time, would purposely delay. And this was only for Indians. There were some other people who were given a different treatment, and the difference was easily noticeable as well.
Coming to the food aspect of it, there are no appetizers nor desserts as they advertise about it. The rotis didnt taste like the Indian. It almost tasted like the Mexican tortiloes (non-veg). It looked like the female was instructed not to serve and treat Indians properly. The owners are cunning and the place looks shabby and dull. There isnt anything that is good about this place. I just wonder, if they are not treating their own country people properly, what would they do with others and how are they stil surviving. Also I would not rate this restaurant, because it is not fit to be given a Single STAR ..If you want to imagine how worst a place can be, then you can visit this place

Pros: no pros

Cons: bad service, racial discrimination, broken furniture, un hygenic food

This place is a total ripoff! Stay away. This is not a real thali - no appetizers or desert or lassi. The trolley with the food comes very slowly on purpose to prevent people from eating too much. For $11 you can get much better food at any other buffet place

Please do not go to this restaurant. My experience was horrible, they mentioned on website thali contains desserts and appetizer, but they told us it will be charged extra. For second servicing they purpose delay giving you food. We were waiting for 5 min. but no one came to serve papad, finally i finished without it. I think for $11 its horrible. I would prefer buffet in any Indian restaurant. Too bad..don't go here

First time and we really loved everything about this place, good food (eat as much as you can at lunch, and we didnt understand why someone made a complaint they were still hungry., I dont quite understand why because there was an endless supply of food..)

the staff are very friendly, kind and sweet, especially the owner :)

easy parking, clean -

we'll be back!

In a standard strip mall lies a hidden gem (at least the last time I went)
An Indian style vegetarian all you can eat however there is no menu !! You get to eat what ever the local dish is for the day. Hows that for adventurous. usually three or four different types of vegetable items plus bread and rice. The owner is incredibly friendly and a very interesting man. The rest of the staff are great. Forget the decor the food and atmosphere alone are worth it.

I've been eating at this restaurant since it opened and find that it's consistently very good. I have always been overfed and never noticed any stinginess or reluctance to feed me as many helpings as I can make room for. I only wish it wasn't across town, I'd eat there every week.

After reading all the great reviews, I wanted to try it and experience it myself. My husband went in for lunch and after $20 later, came out still hungry. We love Indian cuisine and I've frequented many vegetarian restaurants before. I thought the food was a bit overcooked. Three our of the five dishes were flavorful and well seasoned but two were just mushy and didn't resembled any vegetables (and it wasn't puree). What was disappointing is that they were stingy on the portions. They're smart to have servers come and control each portion and advertise it as all you can eat. When I asked for a third helping of two particular dishes (the two that I thought were fairly good), they put just a little dallop in the little yogurt size cups. They even skimped on giving me a second helping of rice, which is the cheapest to serve and usually a filler. I took that as a sign that I'm done and shouldn't eat any more. The owner stopped by frequently to chit-chat. The only thing good about the lunch was the saffron ice cream. Like I said, we came out of there $20 poorer and still hungry.
I wouldn't go back again.

This is really good choice for the people who are pure vegetarian. There is absolutely no meat.
Place is nice and clean and food is tasty, People who love simple and elegant food it is right choice for them.
Your stomach will never get upset , it is not spicy so overall good for kids and others.

If you are a vegetarian, you probably do not look forward to most restaurant outings as most menus offer a paltry selection for you. Fear not - this restaurant has no menus (well, actually, last time I went they had employed a supplemental menu with appetizers, sweets, and drinks - try the masala tea!) and everything in the place is vegetarian! As other have said, the owner is incredibly friendly and affable, but all of the other employees are very friendly as well. The restaurant is in kind of a "dive" location, and is not the most beautiful place in the world, but the food is great. I only with they would serve naan more often with the meals as I am a big fan.

The owner is a very interesting, funny and sarcastic guy, I often goto the restaurant to chat with him. The take home desserts and snacks are freshly made in the kitchen, it often becomes an ingredient in my trail mix when I go hiking. The food is a blue light special, but has a appetizer and drink menu. I recommend the samosa and sweet Mango Lassi from the menu. Although there are no buffet table, the food is all you can eat, he just goes back to the kitchen and make some more for you. If you go there once he'll remember you.

I fell in love with Vatica my first lunch there. I used to work in the area and would visit Vatica at least once a week for lunch. The food is always interesting, different, and VERY delicious. The owner is awesome, as is the rest of the staff. Go to lunch later on Tuesdays and Thursdays as the noon crowd is pretty heavy, often filling the restaurant to capacity. I only get to make it now for dinner weekdays and lunch on the weekends, but it is a trip worth the drive to Cobb county.

My family wanted to do something real special for my mother in-law Mother's Day. She has in the past several months went vegetarian and there are not many restaurant that she will eat at or if she does she only eats "lettuce". So I found this restaurant and read all the rave reviews and my husband and I decided that we would take the family. We left church late and so it was like 15 minutes till 3:00pm, which they are suppose to stop serving. I called and spoke with the manager and he asked me where we were and I told him we were on I-285 and he said we will still serve you. I was so pleased with the service and the wait staff was very attentative. My mother in-law loved it and kept asking for more. Thanks, Vatica for making this Mother's Day one to remember!!!

Even though I am not a vegetarian, I thoroughly enjoyed my first meal at Vatica. I will start with the fact that this restaurant is NOT for picky eaters, because you have no choice in what you will be eating. The premise is simple -- as soon as you are seated, you are brought trays with four items of the day, plus raita, rice, and the most delicious thin naan that I have ever tasted. Once you have finished your first round, the staff bring around a cart and refill your items. Although the portions seem small, I did not need another round, although my husband took some of everything. The food is delicious and relatively spicy, service is fast, and the owner is friendly and fun to visit with. This is a keeper!

it is a wonder on how the vegetables are cooked with minimal spices but are incredibly tasty. I can't get enough of the potato curry and then most times that we visit, we get to enjoy another vegetable dish that we havent tasted before. I like the variety of dishes that we get to taste. This way, we never get bored! Their mango lassi is one of the best!

Editorial from

The Vallabh family, who hail from Gujarat, a state in west India, owns the uncomplicated and delightful Vatica. Don't come for atmosphere. In fact, the tray full of metal dishes puts some people off, but anyone who values good food doesn't…
