OOTY Station in Selfridges Birmingham

Whenever I venture to Selfridges, I normally head over to Pret or Yo Sushi. It's been a shame that for a while the options have been quite basic. So, it's good to see that they have added a South Indian option recently of the name OOTY Station. They have taken over Rola Wala's old spot.


It's good to see that Selfridges newest addition also has a plethora of vegan options. This includes Tangy Samosa Chaat, Mattar Aloo Tikki, Masala Potato Wedges (all from the street bites section on the menu and around £5 each), Traditional Masala Dosa, Onion Chilli and Coriander Uttapam (both from the griddle section on the menu and around £8 each), Chana Masala (from the mains section on the menu and around £8), Pulao Rice, Pickle and Mango Chutney (from the sides section on the menu and go from £1 to £2.50)

Starting with the Mattar Aloo Tikki, shown above. This a great homage to the classic. Crispy on the outside and soft potato and pea inside with slather of tamarind sauce. Lovely!

Next onto the Tangy Samosa Chaat. This was heavenly. A generous portion that consisted of 2 medium sized veggie samosas and a large dollop of chana masala. Yum, yum and more yum!

Then there was the Chana Masala, accompanied by white basmati rice. Loved the creamy richness of this. You can tell it was bathed in tamarind sauce, which gives it a beautiful sweet and sour tanginess.

Now onto my favourite, the Traditional Masala Dosa that came with sambhar and coconut chutney. It's filled with a beautiful potato and onion filling that isn't just in the middle but throughout the dosa. I can't fault this and it's what I would go back for. It's always a yes from me for vegan masala dosa.

Last but no means least, the Onion Chilli and Coriander Uttapam. Loved the flavour and chilli infused aspect of this. Not for those that can't handle a little chilli. I found it a little doughy but the flavours were on point.

Overall, this was a great little visit to OOTY Station. I don't think it will be the last either, as the service was also ace.

**I was invited to the eatery to review their vegan options. My views are my own but the meal was complimentary**

Would I go back? Yes, for the dosa especially

How did they cope with the vegan dietary requirement? Easily. No need for a seperate menu either, everything is clearly labelled on the main menu

What are the prices like? A little expensive but not surprising considering it's in Selfridges.

What is eatery best for? The Masala Dosa
