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.

Excellent! The food was delicious and service good. The restaurant in itself is very small however, and we were somewhat cramped in.
Great food and service, lots of flavour. We didn’t have to wait very long for the meal.
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.
