I used to absolutely love this place when I lived in Melbourne and went regularly. On a recent visit back to the city I took a few friends to what was on of my favourite places for food and we were so disappointed. The staff member who was working at the time was incredibly rude, slow at taking orders, told... More

I love this place. Of course the menu is very simple but is very good. If you are vegetarian or vegan like me you have to try. They are very good and friendly people. Beautiful atmosphere.

Love this place, this visit was my fourth time back and it never fails to disappoint. We got lentil burgers (a must have) and a curry which was all amazing. The pay what you think system is a great idea and all of the people working there are very friendly and accommodating.

This place is warm with love, good vibes and great food. It's also by donation which I found to be a very amazing way of receiving money in exchange of their delicious food. Highly recommended!

Not being much of a vegan eater in general, but always open to new things, I felt like going here to kick off my Melbourne adventures. As others have said, the place is "Pay as you feel", which means you put whatever money you want into a cute little treasure chest near the middle of the store. Of course, this... More

My friend introduce this unique restaurant to me, and I was surprised... that this kind of restaurant does exist! I was a meat eater, but I liked their vegetarian food I will totally recommend anyone to visit, but please do not just leave after finishing eating, put some coins even if it's just few cents. We must be grateful.

Portions are on the smaller side but you can always pay less because of that. The food it good and they have a few options so everyone should be catered for. It restaurant... More

Interesting concept of pay as you feel. I feel that most people would end up paying a reasonable amount - food in Melbourne being relatively expensive, you wouldn't just put two dollars in the bowl unless you were very poor or very shameless. The thali of the day had two curries, Rice and pappadam and was quite good; the lasagna... More
