Meat free is the way to be over at Madame K’s Vegetarian, where Melbourne’s herbivores and veggie lovers convene to indulge in ethically minded Thai cuisine. At this lovely dining establishment on Fitzroy’s busy Brunswick Street, you’ll encounter some of the city's most authentic Thai specialities, all made without the use of animal products. Featuring dim lighting, dark furnishings and stunning artwork, Madame K’s Vegetarian is impressive by looks alone, but for first timers we recommend enjoying the lamb madras curry – with mock lamb, of course – or an order of the tasty tofu cashew stir fry served with your choice of jasmine or brown rice. Sound like a plan? Book ahead to make it happen.
Thai cuisine is great for many reasons, but one that we – and indeed the team at Madame K’s Vegetarian – fully embrace, is the expert use of tofu. This superb eatery in Melbourne is passionate about being meat-free and creative with the vegetarian dishes it serves. The restaurant itself – excellently located on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy – is decked out with contemporary oriental furnishings and is a very pleasant place to sit indeed. Diners will be comfortable at Madame K’s Vegetarian and made to feel most welcome. That much we can guarantee, folks.
Madame K’s Vegetarian may be down as a Thai restaurant, but the Japanese spiced tofu starter is not to be missed, served with a vegan wasabi mayo and avocado, it’s nothing short of dreamy. The lemongrass duck main is also a big hit, wheat protein duck with chilli, and plenty of Asian greens, as is the soba noodle salad served with tempura wheat protein chicken and plenty of fresh veggies. Foodies will be more than impressed with this vegetarian Fitzroy hotspot so snag a table now before the rest of Melbourne beats you to it.

Good Food for Vegetarian. Friendly staff and quick service. Busy Location
Had the lemongrass duck and the lamb massaman curry it was beautiful. I highly recommend both dishes. Service was fantastic and price is affordable. I will be back!
We love going to Madame K's Vegetarian restaurant when we are in Melbourne from Sydney. It is the first restaurant we always book. We love the flavours and mock meat dishes. Our ultimate favs are the chicken satay skewers, the lamb sliders and the massaman curry with the mash potato. We will be back in 2 weeks time and can't wait to have our favourites again! Always great service from the staff and great quality of food! Thank you!
Delicious food. We prefer not to eat factory farmed meat and seafood, so we usually eat vegetarian when we eat out. At Madame K's, we were able to enjoy some meatier flavours, without the cruelty. The "prawns" were about as prawny as "real" ones in many other places (which is to say, not like good quality freshies, but still having some prawniness). Unlike many other restaurants, where we need to order "hot" to get something even mildly spicy, Madame K's medium gave us quite a nice level of spice (too hot, indeed, for both the kids). It has a peaceful ambience and a nice hum. We'll definitely be back (especially for the special "duck").
Madame K's Vegetarian is hands down my favourite Vegan restaurant in Melbourne, I have been there multiple times & the quality of the food / service is always amazing. I would recommend this place to meat eaters as well vegans & vegetarians. Super impressive every time I go!
We had the best night here. I brought about 8 non-vegan friends here who were all a bit hesitant when they found out but were all absolutely blown away. Many of them saying if vegan tasted like this always they could do it easily. The food was quick, DELICIOUS, and the staff were lovely. Prices are cheap and BYO is always awesome! Thanks so much for an awesome night guys!
Beautiful food, however at our table of 6, 2 received their food, 10 minutes later another person received their food, and about 15 minutes later the last 3 of us received our food. The first three were already about halfway through their meals by the time the rest of us received our food. No apology was offered until I mentioned it to the waiter. They didn't mention the wait for our food at all. However, because we mentioned it, we did receive 10% off our meal at the end.
Everything here is beyond words. Myself and my partner (who eats meat) were both totally absorbed by the faux chicken satay skewers and have been thinking about them ever since. The mains were just as good, but such generous servings in the entrees left us leaving like blown up balloons. Couldn't recommend more!
