Enjoy our special menu between February 14th to 17th at MokSHA Bellevue
From the article posted on DownTownBellevue.com
Moksha, located at Bellevue Square within the Lodge, opened in September 2012. The family-owned establishment features South Indian cuisine. The menu offers a variety of both meat and vegetarian dishes from Southern India. Having been voted a top restaurant by Seattle Times, Moksha serves fresh, sustainable and healthy foods that create an authentic dining experience. Lunch, dinner and happy hour are offered daily.
We interviewed Lakshmi Thanu, Owner, to learn more about Moksha. This is Thanu’s second restaurant in the region. He opened Spice Route in Bellevue (Crossroads area) in 2006. He is a native to the south of India, which is a big contributor to the food’s authenticity.

About Veg Speed Date
This isn’t your typical speed dating service. Veg Speed Date is exclusively for vegan and vegetarian singles across North America. For our Valentine’s 2017 launch, we are putting on speed dating events across the United States and Canada! And we are donating $1 of every U.S. ticket sold to The Humane League!
Veg Speed Date is expanding on the unique vegan/vegetarian speed dating concept that Karine Brighten has refined over 5 years in San Francisco. We have thought through every detail to make sure people have a great time, don’t need to worry about feeling rejected, and have the best chance of making that special connection. Karine’s events have already resulted in life-changing matches for San Francisco vegans and vegetarians, giving rise to long-term relationships, marriages, and families. We can’t wait to start creating these kinds of love stories all over the United States and Canada!
About the Event
Our speed dating events are limited to 30 participants, because we’ve found that an intimate, get-to-really-know-you setting works the best for making real connections. That means these events tend to sell out early, so to avoid disappointment, don’t wait!
We put in tons of time and effort to make sure your chances for a real connection are optimised. We make sure there’s an equal number of men and women – or very close to it. There will never be a Veg Speed Date event with 25 women and 5 men! (We also put on LGBTQ events — check out our website to learn more!)
Early bird tickets are $35* and include:
-$1 donated to The Humane League (February U.S. launch events)
-Tips and articles to help prepare you for a great speed dating experience, what to expect at the event, how to make the best of your 5 minutes with each potential match, conversation starters, and more
-Special offers and discounts from our partners
-Chance to win awesome raffle prizes at every event
-Valentine’s Week Launch surprises 🙂
*Early Bird pricing ends on January 31st, Regular Pricing $40

Worried that your mini-date will be with someone out of your preferred age range?
It happens. However, you can still make it a fun five minutes. Maybe you’ll learn something new or make a business connection. Be open, have fun, and again—see each person as a potential friend who might teach you something new or inspire you in some way.
