It seems that there is no Indian vegetarian food in or near the Canton fair. But here are some restaurants selling fruits and vegetables, you may have a try if you don’t mind. If you really want to eat authentic Indian food, here are two famous restaurants in this city are recommended to you. One is Little InDia, located at No.103 - 104 shop, Edinburgh international apartments, No.2 Huali Road, Tainge District. The other is Bombay grill, located at No.28 Guangming Road, Yuexiu District.

Yeah, as I know, Indian restos are not hard to find in the city. I tried the food at Tandoor Indian Restaurant and it was a good experience. It is located on 2F, Asia International Hotel, no. 326, East Huanshi Road, Yuexiu District, around 13km from your hotel. You may consider taking a taxi to reach directly.

Well, the neareat metro station is the 2nd Worker's Culture Palace (Shi Er Gong), Metro Line 2. It is located on Jiangnan Avenue Middle.
You can take subway line 2 to the station, Exit D. Then, walk west for about 850 yards to the restaurant. :)
