Came here on a Saturday night with my boyfriend. The place was packed, dingy, and the service was slow. We ordered 3 dishes - the spicy miso eggplant, pop soy with black pepper sauce, and fried tofu. All were pricey and not anything like we expected. The eggplant was mushy and the dish was not spicy with miso as the... More

What a busy delightful place to enjoy vegetarian food. We arrived with out a booking on a busy night and still only had to wait half an hour.

Nice and affordable food! I had the Sizzling Tempeh dish and it was quite nice. Staff were friendly and efficient. I would go back when in Sydney next.

Attentive staff, with a wide range of vegetarian options, this was a perfect dinner choice for us when meeting friends. We each ordered a dish and shared and there was plenty of food for all - portion size was adequate. The food was tasty, fresh and we all enjoyed our meals.

Ordered two dishes, one was great and impressive, the other one was average. Both dishes came with small portion. Service so so.

This was an amazing find for me, having recently turned vegan.. The food was hearty and sooo delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. The wait staff were so lovely too! We arrived early but the restaurant quickly filled up, it's a very popular place..

Went there with my elderly parents who aren't vegetarian and they loved it and so did we. Lots of gluten dishes. Nice flavours and fresh good tasting veggies.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
