I really liked the food, and the volunteers do a great job. The menu only included six meals, but all of them were interesting. Great that everything is vegetarian.

Went there with a friend. It was the first time I heard about a place where you pay whatever you think is appropriate for a meal, as the place is a non-for-profit place... it certainly is an interesting concept. The food is really good too. All vegetarian.

Really nice idea of paying what you feel it is worth. Happy to pay a good price as the food was great. Had the lentil burger and shared the pancakes, both were flavoursome and very filling! Will definitely be going again.

I really liked the concept of this resturant; pay what you are able to and what you think the meal is worth. I liked the atmosphere of the place and as I came here on my own I was paired with another solo diner and was treated to some nice conversation. I came for dinner and there was a queue... More

Very nice concept. Small little alternative vegetarian restaurant. You order and pay as much as you think your meal was worth :-) Vegetarian Lasagne with pumpkin and tomatoes and rocket was very tasty!

The concept of this place intrigued me - a restaurant run by volunteers where diners donate what they feel is fair or can afford. All in aid of community work like supporting refugees and the marginalised. So I checked it out, and a visit to Lentils is now a habit whenever I visit Melbourne. One reviewer described the decor as... More

same menu every day! Not that I don't find appealing every item on it though. The lasagne and the okonomiyaki are my favorites so far.
