AMAZING Vegetarian/Vegan food served with a smile! I loved the dahl, marinated tofu and raw treats <3 I'm Vegetarian, but I think most of what I had to eat was Vegan - most dishes were Vegan!! I ended up eating here two days in a row because the food was so yummy!!

It a nice ambience and we quite liked the idea of tasty vegetarian meal. The food was provided on the basis of plate size and we found the medium... More

Excellent Vegetarian food, tasty & healthy. Loved the Lentil Shepard Pie, it is awesome, with soft brown lentils, mashed potato and tasty cheese. Its worth visiting just for this but there are lots of tasty great dishes. Well worth a visit even if you are not a vegetarian.

We eat there nearly every week for lunch. Different variety of hot foods, salads and sweets, all ready to serve. A favourite place to eat.

The Lentil Shepard Pie is one of my favourite meals you will find in Byron bay. It's home cooked style with brown lentils, mashed potato and melted cheese, its a vegetarian version of a shepard pie and it's totally delicious. The restaurant itself is an oasis in holiday time when you can't get into any other eatery.

The Cardamon Pod is a Hare Krishna restaurant in Byron Bay. It's in a great location, the food is excellent but at the same time slightly pricey for this sort of place. A group of six of us ate there today with a bill of about $100 - majority having plates of rice with two curries or salads with a... More
