I came here with 2 vegans & 1 vegetarian! Cosy little restaurant but packed in like sardines. The food (well presented) was ok, I found the nachos to be bland, alot of food I could not eat as it contained nuts, this is usual for vegan restaurants to use alot of nuts as cashews are a good vegan replacement and...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your experience. We just want to clarify that the credit card surcharge is only to cover transaction costs that the bank charges us for providing this service. We absorbed it for many years, but the growth in the use of credit card transactions in recent times made this unsustainable. We... More

Where the cool people eat, I think. Great looking plates of rices, lentils, tofu and sauces, brought together in a big loud banquet of spices. Startling what tofu can turn itself into.

The food is excellent, but there is not much to praise about the environment, service or total experience. Soooooo, based on the food alone this place gets 4 stars; yes that's how good the food is. However... the staff, although friendly, are overburdened and therefore not able to give each customer the attention that they deserve. The place is crowded,... More

Went here for dinner with my husband and friends (who are both vegetarian). We all thoroughly enjoyed our food. Between us we had 4 different meals (curry, bean wrap etc) and the food was fresh and really tasty! Very cheap, staff were friendly and food was great - a must if you are in Fitzroy!

Cannot book. Nowhere to wait. Cramped seating. Menu looks interesting and service quite prompt. Lots of rice, 'main course' size green vegetable curry had very little vegetables of standard type and mainly curry sauce, was definitely not enough for 1 person as a main. Dragon bowl also fairly small serves of everything. Luckily we weren't that hungry. Bill not great... More

I almost don't want to tell you all how fabulous this place is, because that means I may not get a seat each time I go. But this is the most delicious asian vegetarian/vegan food around. Yum Yum Yum Yum yum!!!

Our friend really wanted to have dinner in this restaurant since he heard a lot of good things about it, therefore our expectations were rather high. I can't remember the name of my dish (see photo) but it was good – nothing special, but good. I was not very happy with my choice of beer (milky Japanese beer), but that's... More

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighbourhood Profile
Fitzroy
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.
