I've been here a few times now and it's always a favourite of mine! Most recently, we found a last-minute table on a Saturday night (busy, booked out) and the staff were concerned we would be happy in the last table near the door, which we were fine with. The food is so fresh and creative, there is a play... More

This is a nice, quiet restaurant just off Lygon street. It's vegeterian but the choice of the plates can fit everyone's taste: they wonderfully revisit Indian, Italian, Japanese, Chinese food.. The indian curry was just delicious.The lasagne Pasolini is also a must: very delicate and tasty, with perfectly baked egg plants. We also tried the dumplings as a starter (very... More

OMG....is all I can say about the most yummy vegetarian food on earth. The place was full which is always a good sign! Plenty of choice, great salads and curries. Very attentive staff and although they brought out wrong order, it got fixed within no time. I will definitely go again next time when I am in Melbourne for business.

Friend and I met for dinner at shakahari in carlton. Service received excellent and the meals tasted fantastic especially the dumplings. Cocktail wasnt great and the timing between entree and main was to quick. Not enough time too digest and chat before next meal and maybe a few more additions could be added to mains. Overall would highly recommend and... More

Great vegetarian food, perfect service, good value and delicious food. The menu is diverse and caters for vegetarian and vegan tastes, better still the food is suitable for all your meat eating friends who have been scarred by all those 'old skool' vegetarian restaurants serving slops in a pot. Don't even tell them it's all vegetarian.

The food at Shakahari is beautiful. We started with the dumplings and avocado magic. They were both good but the avocado magic was beautiful. For mains we shared the laksa and satay. They were both good but I'm glad we shared as they would have been too much to eat the whole dish of each. Another friend had the lasagne... More

Doing a good job, Shakahari is still looking after the vego's of Carlton. it moved out of the main drag, [Lygon St] years ago...and its less of an obvious influence...but its a nicer more relaxed place where it is around the corner in Faraday St, and the vegetarian food is good...

This was my first time visiting with friends who are regulars. The food was amazing and the servings very generous. What stood out to me was the exceptional service from our waiter. He was so attentive and delightful. Hands down the best service I've experienced. We went mid week for lunch so it was nice and quiet and cosy by... More

The food was great. Our entrees arrived very quickly, but then our mains followed straight away. I felt like we were being rushed through. We were in and out in about 45 minutes. The bill was nearly $100 so I would have appreciated a more leisurely experience

We dropped in without a booking to a warm welcome. The entrées we had were very tasty and enjoyed by us all. The main dishes were well prepared and tasty but a little on the bland side. A little more of the sauce with the sweet potato cashless would have been nice. The vegetable curry was fresh and tasty but... More
