The food and atmosphere here were great, even on a quiet Wednesday night. The tofu satay was delicious, and my Barossa Shiraz smooth and pungent. The waitstaff were prompt and friendly. A great meal.

We ordered meals to share and it was perfect for 4 of us. Papaya salad, Crocketts, lasagne, and the famous satay. It has Indian flavors in the... More

This place is sensational, high quality, delicious vegetarian food. It's the type of place you can bring non-vego's and they will be highly impressed. There's plenty of health packed, creative meals on the menu. Everything seems so considered. The ambiance is just so quiet and peaceful - there isn't music blarring, you can have a conversation with friends and enjoy... More
