Padmanadi is a hidden gem. Apparantly it has been around for 12 years and I had never heard of it before. This is a pure vegetarian restaurant that recreates asian dishes with tofu of different flavor and texture. We tried a "chicken", "beef", "pork" and "fish." The sauces and flavors were delicious! I highly reccommend eating here even if you... More

I am an omnivore and was skeptical about a vegetarian restaurant but was coerced into going with some coworkers. Well...peer pressure paid off this time. I was astounded by the selection and the flavours. It made me realize the potential for food without meat.

When I want vegetarian food I really like options other than fake meat made of tofu. I am not a vegetarian and maybe this is the problem; 90% of the food here is designed for people who are craving a meat substitute. There is duck, chicken, beef tofu, etc.... All of which taste like mildly different tofu. Very disappointed at... More

I live in Vancouver and we have some pretty good Asian/veggie options here. Padmanadi far exceeds any veggie/Asian restaurant from Vancouver. We had an eggplant dishes that was amazing. Service was great too! Lots of people made reservations, so I would recommend to do the same.

Went here with a friend for lunch. Very friendly staff who make you feel right at home. Beautiful décor and furniture. Cool sinks in the washrooms. Loved the bamboo décor. Tasty food, loved the cheese cake. Was a nice experience to try out vegan food. I would go again!

I ate here with two other friends and we ordered several dishes. The one that stood out the most, however, was the mock chicken curry. Other dishes were very good, but not outstanding. The "shrimp" was perhaps the one I liked the least. We tried all of their desserts: the rice pudding was the most disappointing because it lacked creaminess.... More

Family of 5, 4 vegetarians and 1 meat lover. He didn't miss the meat! That's saying something. There was a young guitarist / vocalist and he was great, an unexpected surprise! Highly recommend.

Padmanadi's is one of my favorite restaurants in this city and a place I always end up showing guests. Vegetarian or not everyone I have brought here has enjoyed it because they match delicious food with good presentation. If you want to try a restaurant you might not find back home visit Padmanadi's. The other vegetarian restaurants in this city... More

The type of "meat" dishes that make you check twice and equally awesome veggie dishes. 5/5. Haven't eaten at too many fully vegetarian/vegan restaurants in the last couple years so to be able to select from the ENTIRE menu rather than just picking out the veggie dishes was a treat in itself. And we'll definitely be coming back to try... More
