Super fast and delicious. Meals are great value for money and the variety of the food is great. Never thought vegan could be so tasty! Will definitely tell my friends about this very well hidden gem.
Vegan and vegetarian options, centrally located, delicious, fast and friendly. Will definitely be back again, reasonably priced also which is not always the case when it comes to healthy eating! A must try indeed!
I visit here every time I'm in Melbourne and am never disappointed. Great tasting vegan food for a very affordable price. I brought three non-vegetarians along and all of them enjoyed the experience.
It was disappointing. The main staff member was unfriendly and even though we had booked, we didn't feel very welcome. The food was not hot enough and I wasn't convinced of its freshness, especially the salads. I would go to Crossways which is amazingly good anyday! The staff are always friendly there and food is great and its cheaper!!
Good service with a buffet style setting. Quiet and calm restaurant with Indian cuisine. I quite liked the dessert, vegan Apple crumble with vegan custard.
