Went for lunch for the first time at Padmanadi. We ordered the ginger beef, teriyaki chicken and jasmine rice. The food was very good and delicious. It did taste very much like meat. We also tried out the desert menu. Went for the cheesecake and chocolate lava cake, Both were good and contains no dairy products, so great for lactose... More

Food: excellent! very very flavorful and you almost cannot tell it is NOT meat. I am not sure how this is done but it even had stringyness to it like chicken meat! (soy based product I was told) NOTE: it is mostly family style serving. Fro example, a "soup" is more like a cauldron :) Ask for extra bowls to... More

Padmanadi is amazing and the food and the family that run it are very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend the buffet days of you haven't been there before to try a bunch of dishes and then you will have favorites- guaranteed :)

My colleagues took me to Padmanadi to celebrate my retirement. As I am vegan, this was an excellent choice. The restaurant is large and has both an a la carte and buffet menu. I have had both and I particularly enjoy the variety of the buffet. The meat substitute meals are amazingly meat like in texture and taste. I recommend... More

Located just north of the Edmonton core downtown area with lots of parking in the area. Bright open dining room with lots of room. We were seated right away and the service was very good throughout the evening. Although referred to as a vegetarian restaurant, they serve lots of meat dishes as well such as chicken and fish dishes. However,... More

It's our first time in Padmanadi.. the food is good but it felt like we ate in a fast food restaurant. We sat there, ordered, paid the bill and left. Didn't ask us if it's our first time there, didn't explain the menu.. Though the menu is self explanatory I think it's still good to explain the menu especially for... More
