We judge a restaurant by the following five categories:

The rating in each category goes from 1-Exceptionally bad, to 5-Exceptionally good. The overall numerical ranking of the restaurant is a weighted average of the individual scores in the categories. The categories are weighted as follows: Food - 30%, Variety - 30%, Vegetarian Sensitivity - 20%, Price - 15%, Service - 5%.

TVS does not officially endorse any of the establishments listed here; our reviews are simply a public service for the vegetarian community. They are based on the experiences of a small group of people for one meal at the restaurant.
