Best lentils burger in the world

On my visit to Melbourne I did get a bit lost in the St Kilda suburbs, coming at the end of the day and hunger rising I found "Lentil As Anything"... the friendly staff welcomed with a smile, the menu looked amazing with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. I was surprised when the staff made me... read more

I read about Lentil as Anything in a travel guide and liked the concept but wasn't sure what to expect. This is a funky chilled out place, drawing all sorts of customers, with friendly and helpful staff, serving very good vegetarian food. My thali of the day (dahl, spud and coconut cream curry, rice and condiments) was very tasty and... More

This is one of my favourite little restaurants / cafe's in St Kilda. They have a good choice of menu, the staff are friendly and there's good ethics behind the whole business. I much prefer this one to the one at the Abbotsford Convent. The one in St Kilda used to have a Japanese menu also. Not sure if they... More

Came here to the St Kilda branch with family of young children for lunch on the weekend. The concept is novel in that you pay what you can afford and what you believe the meal is worth. All of the food is vegetarian. The decor is eclectic and bohemian and the restaurant quite small, so you may have to wait... More

Based in the Abbotsford Convent In St Kilda (no Nuns in evidence), Lentil As Anything is a user pays kind of restaurant for those who are vegan/vegetarian. The food is scrumptious, to say the least and one pays what one feels the meal is worth. For vegetarians, like myself, I can highly recommend Lentil as Anything but would suggest one... More

A unique setting and experience based at the Abbotsford Convent St Kilda Melbourne. This is a very positive community project and you pay what you would like towards maintaing the project which gives employment and hope to the unemployed. The setting is lovely with interesting gardens and the river to walk along a bit further off. We came here late... More
