So what is your favourite vegetarian restaurant in Australia?



My experience is fairly limited geographically but one of my favourite places is the Tian Ran on the Gold Coast.

My favourite's are Vego2go and Zenhouse. I'm a bit bored with vego/vegan cafe's and restaurants in Australia just lately though. They're either too hippy-orientated, too small, too weird smelling, too limited on choice with regard to the menu or just run by people who seem to have the right philosophy, but lack imagination and skill with their cooking. My favourite restaurant at the moment is actually a omni one in Melb (yes, I'm a traitor! ) where the food available for me to eat is limited, but it's good quality and of a reasonable standard that I expect if I go out to eat.

Last night, I went to Green Palace Thai Vegetarian (vegan) restaurant at Newtown. OMG! The food... *drools* lol

Vego2go is in Brunswick East in Melb and Zenhouse is in ADL. Just to clarify something, they're more cafe's than restaurants really.

It's not a secret but I'm not going to go out of my way to promote an omni restaurant on VB. I can tell you that it's Italian, and it's on the Yarra waterfront at Southgate.LOL

It's good to know these things... I don't know a single vegan or vegetarian so when I go out to eat I have to consider my friends' tastes more than my own.

trippy taco in melbourne is good, lord of the fries, vego2go. there used to be more that i liked [soulmama] but the standard of the food with some of them has taken a dive in recent years. i reckon these things go in cycles a bit & i guess itll pick up again.

Aw how I miss green gourmet!! I haven't been there for years even though I'm in sydney LOL. My other fav veg place Peace harmony is also in Newtown. Once again haven't dined there for a long time.

The other places which I go to sometimes and which are closer to me are An Lac Vegan, Colour of love and Vegetarian House. All vegan.

Sydney - Green Gourmet

Melbourne - Vegie Bar. Maybe this is because I haven't tried many of their restaurants? But whenever I go there (4 times so far) the food is always good, the staff helpful and courteous, and it's pretty much packed on busy nights. Love it! Ahhh I want a risotto ball! And a pizza!

I'd have to disagree with you on lord of the fries, I tried one of their vegan burgers and I only got a bite into it before throwing it away. Pretty vile. I don't know why they have such a good rep.



Veg2go has good food, though unfortunately the place has a vibe about as nice as going to Maccas.

I would expect more. If you go to the other end of Lygon to somewhere like Tiamo, it's cheap and has a great vibe, but not many vegetarian or vegan options.

Veggie Bar! (Melb) LOVE it. Few friends and myself go there whenever we possibly can. It's always packed. Always great new dishes/specials. Oh and the desserts... drool worthy. truly.

I've only been to a few, One World Cuisine in Kardiyna and Utopia and Lotus, Both on James St in Northbridge.



All heavy on the mock meat, but I think I enjoyed Utopia the most. One World is cheapest and I think it's all vegan now.

Forgot to mention Eden Delicacy in Freo as well. They do asian-style buffet for lunches. It's near Target on Adelaide St

I had a vegan pizza (with yummy vegan cheese), nachos and half a piece of berry (vegan) cheesecake and (vegan) vanilla slice. Got them from Basil Pizza.... even though they aren't actually a vegan joint.

My favourite is probably Soul Mama in Melbourne. I love getting to try lots of different dishes in the way the restaurant is run. Always good value for money to as they really pile those plates high.

My fav vegan restaurant is in Melbourne, but honestly can't remember what its called- maybe its vego2go. What street is that on?
I have also been to SoulMama and LentilAsAnything... I liked them both, but this other one was legendary....

In NZ, my fav restaurant is actually very meat orientated- but the veggie dishes they do there are stunning, and i love that they put a lot of effort into their veggie dishes, even though they primarily cater for omnivores.

God loved birds, he created trees.
Man loved birds, he created cages.
