An innovative Asian restaurant that’s paving the way in Melbourne’s vegetarian dining circles, Ren Dao Vegetarian on Glen Huntly Road in Elsternwick is where you’ll find some of the city’s freshest and most flavourful meat-free dishes. Casual enough for any occasion but still with a sophisticated style, this popular vegetarian restaurant features a calm and peaceful setting that makes it easy to escape the worries of everyday life. You’ll find so much more than the usual meat analogs and tofu dishes at Ren Dao Vegetarian – the chefs here make use of Southeast Asian ingredients like smokey tempeh to change things up a bit. All of the best Asian dishes get a veggie makeover at Ren Dao including favourites like hot plate beef, kung po chicken and curry laksa, and best of all, there’s no meat in sight! Book ahead to veg out at this Elsternwick hotspot.
Another delicious meal at Ren Dao. The "butter prawns" and "braised roast duck" were especially delicious. Thank you. Still one of my favourite Melbourne restaurants.
My 83 yr old meat eating Father said "that was the best Asian meal I have ever had". Think that sums up our experience! 10/10
A great South East Asian food experience. The food is excellent, the staff are friendly and the restaurant is beautifully decored. I have eaten at Ren Dao many times over the years and have always enjoyed the experience.
