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...

Kalachandji's is one of my favorite Dallas dining experiences. It's an oasis In a city that celebrates giant portions and tons of red meat. Located inside a Buddhist temple, the Kalachandji's buffet menu changes daily. Staples are a salad bar, steamed veggies with tahini, brown or white rice, sauteed greens, and dal, with two rotating entrees. All of the entrees... More

My family and I recently visited Kalachanddji's on a Saturday evening, what a great experience. We first explored the gift shop which had some unique items to purchase. Afterwards we found the beginning of the line for the buffet, everything looked fantastic and the staff was quick to let us know what certain items were when we asked. The salad... More

I visited Kalanchandji's this past weekend with my father, who is a vegetarian. I am not a vegetarian but love all food and love trying new things! I found this restaurant and the temple very enjoyable! I do not know much about the religious aspect, but like I said I love experiencing new cultures and seeing other ways of life!... More

First, if you're a vegan, this place must be heaven. If you're not a vegan and enjoy traditional Indian food, like me, you will realize they serve a variety of vegetarian foods and flavors from several different cultures, including Indian. Only you can decide if you like or not. The food is served buffet style and allows you to choose... More

To start, this was not an Indian restaurant so I am not sure why it is listed as one. Each dish was okay, but this was not Indian food at all. It was actually a mix of Thai, Chinese, Greek, etc. which isn't bad if you want different types of food at one time. I agree with Eric S. in... More
