I finally got talked into trying this place today. It was their monthly lunch buffet for $20. The interior of the restaurant and the staff are lovely. The food is not. I would have rated it lower, but my review would have been such an outlier that I would have been beaten up by angry vegetarians. In the interest of... More

Amazing food. Best vegetarian food. Best vegan food. Great atmosphere. I've taken "hardcore meat eaters"…and they loved it. It's that good.

Our family of four had supper here on the weekend. Excellent meal. Service was also excellent. Not licensed, but this wasn't a problem. The featured combo fruit/vegetable drinks were very good, as were the spring rolls and deep fried wontons. Soup and sharable dishes were great. Enjoyed the imitation szechuan beef, but less impressed with the imitation chicken and shrimp.... More

This is one of our family's favourite restaurants and there isn't a single vegetarian in the crowd. Clean restaurant, very friendly staff and great food. Some of our favourites are the ginger beef, spicy chicken, chill green beans, spicy eggplant and curry mutton. We haven't ever gone for their special occasion buffets, but we've heard they are amazing and are... More

Such amazing staff and ambiance. I love the food there. It always tastes so incredible. The only thing that wasn't overly fantastic this time was that they ran out of chocolate mouse. I suppose that was a sign that I should not be getting desert then ;) It is one of my favorite restaurants in Edmonton.

This restaurant excels in creating meatless creations of typical meat dishes. Beef, pork, chicken even seafood...recreated in meatless versions and perfectly spiced and flavored. The service is excellent and prompt. I have never been to the buffet, but have heard regulars rave about it as well. For sit-down meals, the flavors are phenomenal. I hesitate giving this the full 5... More

Went for lunch with some colleagues. Very good food (I had vegetarian "chicken" curry), and we started with deep fried tofu - a bit like eating marshmallows dipped in soy sauce. Good value and good atmosphere just off downtown Edmonton. The only downside is that the neighbourhood isn't the nicest in town.

I have eaten several times at Padmanadi and find the service and food always good. The meatless dishes are amazing and I love the variety at the buffet. Staff are friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this restaurant even if you're not a vegetarian.

Great choice for vegans and even meat lovers. However, I am gluten insensitive, and there is gluten in all the fake meats, so we ordered accordingly. All the dishes were super tasty, spicy and flavourful; nothing was overcooked, the string beans were still crisp. Service was good and food came out quick. Good value, portions were decent. I think we... More
