My wife and I eat here all the time and love the fact that, as vegetarians, we can eat anything on the menu. The food is excellent but the menu is limited so it's best to check their Web site to see what's for dinner that evening, my personal favorite is the eggplant parmigiana. However, no matter what else they... More

Kalachandji's is in the Krishna temple and staffed by residents. It's a vegetarian buffet with a nice selection of tasty, but not overly-spicy foods. The courtyard seating area is very nice. I've never observed any proselytizing. If you are interested in the Krishna's you can wander the halls a bit.

Loved this place!!! Make no mistake it's located inside a temple that's located inside the ghetto. What you will find inside is heavenly Indian food. When we arrived we were totally confused about how you pay. You basically just jump in line, grab a plate, hit the buffet, and sit. Eventually a waiter magically appears right as your thinking dessert... More

This buffet restaurant is located near the Arboretum in an old church building. The food was fresh, nicely prepared and was vegetarian and/or vegan.

I wanted to review Kalachanji's because it is simply one of my favorite places on earth where I love to go to get energized. The food is blessed with the divine energies of the staff who prepare fresh vegetarian meals filled with loving kindness. Aside from the meal itself, treat yourself to a brief meditation in the temple and sit... More

Not sure why this Hare Krishna Temple is called a palace. It may look a bit like a castle from the outside, but not a palace. There are Hare Krishna / ISKCON cafes / restaurants and then there are some other. This is quite an unusual one outside of India that I have come across. It is squeaky clean, it... More

As vegetarians, my wife and I have had lunch in many vegetarian restaurants in a number of countries. Lunch at Kalachandji's was simply the best. There are plentiful fresh, raw vegetables and the cooked dishes are as fresh and delicious. Not to be missed is their special tamarind drink - light, fresh, and delicious with a meal. Lunch is served... More

I have gone to this restaurant since it opened at least 25 years ago. It's delicious, it's fresh and the atmosphere is calming, friendly and very peaceful. I wish it were open on Mondays other than that it's great that it's open 6 days a week. LOVE IT! From Vegetarian Indian cuisine to Italian and Mexican Vegetarian dishes, Delicious! Always... More
