Knowing how strong the organic chai was from a previous visit, I ordered it at the start of the meal this time and it still kept me up till bed time. Must try! 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

There have been some very positive reviews for Shakahari, however, my food experience was somewhat mediocre. Firstly, I was disappointed that the current menu on the website was not what we were offered at the restaurant and many of the dishes I was expecting to find were not available. The prices were also out of date. This is a major... More

I booked a table for 14 on the 14th Feb for my birthday. Despite few misunderstandings at the time of booking we had a great experience. We started with the most annoying behaviour for a restaurateur; we all got there late and at different times due the bad weather and the fact we were all coming from far away and... More
