Nice experience

Food was buffet style and there was so much variety. After looking at some many good and positive reviews i wanted to give this place a try on my trip to Dallas and was not disappointed. Tamarind Drink is definitely a must try.

This restaurant is part of a Hare Krishna Temple, all vegetarian buffet (with just a few milk based items). The food is very good, well seasoned and probably a lot more healthy than the usual Dallas Tex-Mex joint. The restaurant is small with a well stocked buffet line, soup-salad-vegies-main dish and is open to the elements. On a nice spring... More

I did even miss meat, the food was so varied and delicious! The tamarind tea was awesome and without caffeine. The service was authentic and amazing. The courtyard was so beautiful,peaceful, and I was transported to India in the heart of Dallas! I will return as soon as I can!

Kalachandji's is my favorite restaurant in Dallas. We used to eat there once a week when we lived in Dallas. The restaurant is right next to the Temple, but there's no proselytizing. The food is vegan and from a variety of cultures, not just Indian: Thai, Italian, even BBQ. The Krishnas do not eat onions or garlic, they substitute a... More

Kalchandji's continues to be one of my favorite places to eat. My husband is not a vegetarian either, but he loves the food here. It such a great place with wonderful people that run the restaurant.

Palacial Facade is what greets you at Kalachandji's temple, which houses a restaurant inside. The food was supercilious, with atleast a 10 course buffet. There were veggies, lentils, salads, different varieties of rice and the yummy desserts. It's difficult to pick a favorite when everything was good, but I would recommend that one must not miss the Tamarind Drink. They... More

Delicious (if a bit spicy!) food in a tranquil courtyard setting. The buffet line eliminates the need for a menu and server; you just take what you like from the changing daily menu, with a full salad bar as well. The desserts are amazing; the day I was there one of the choices was vanilla kheer and a week later... More

This place has excellent vegetarian food, and a good variety. Definitely has a Indian flare with a good amount of flavor and spice. Don't let the locations fool you, it's definitely worth the trip. It's buffet style, so you go through the line to get food and then a waiter will help you if you need it/for check.

The uniquely peaceful, floral ambience of Kalachandji's in Dallas is a wonderful setting in which to eat the best vegetarian food in the region. Featuring fresh ingredients from their own gardens, the master chefs of the ISKON temple restaurant offer lunch and dinner menus that serve every vegetarian appetite with classic dals, breads, panir and tofu dishes, delectable greens and...
