This place just makes me feel good when I eat here. The food is always very good and all vegetarian. I would say the Naam could learn a thing or two from the way ISKON prepares food. My only criticism would be that the staff, who are always nice, need to be better organized. I go back regularly

I first went to the Hare Krishna Temple in Burnaby about 6 weeks ago. I attended a feast on the Sunday evening in the temple which was quite popular - lots of people attending. You don't need to be a follower of Hare Krishna to attend you just need to be hungry..haha. The food was so good I came back... More

A very devout place but needs some work. There needs to be a better management of the place & the temple folks need to either ask for more help or better coordinate what they've got.

This ISKCON temple in particular has taken my heart. The presiding deities, Radha Madan Mohan, are very merciful. The lunch buffet is one of the best in Burnaby, with different dishes prepared everyday. I would recommend a visit for anyone who is in the area, you will want to visit again and again. Sunday night is the best time to... More

Nice gardens, very peaceful and calm. Inside of the temple is very serene and you can meditate in there.

A little known fact, this place employs one of the finest vegetarian chefs to grace the lower mainland. When you are in the area, be sure to stop in for the best VEGGIE BURGER IN VANCOUVER. BTW, there is a nice temple here, as well...

I've been lost for a good veg place to eat in Burnaby and was delighted to find that the Iskcon temple does an all you can eat vegetarian meal for only a $5 donation! My kids and I went back for seconds and they served us very nicely. Definitely going to be visiting on a daily basis. The temple itself... More

The people I met at the temple were very friendly. Looks like they are working on doing much needed repairs to the temple. I enjoyed the music and the delicious food while I was there.

I visited the temple and no one really seems to care. The surroundings seems inactive except on Sundays. It used to be very spiritually inviting, now that is gone.
