We loved the lentils as anything so much in Collingwood that we came to the one in st Kilda! We had the lentil burger and the Vietnamese salad to share. The salad was beautiful and tribe burger was nice (maybe a bit more filling). We sat outside but there's plenty of seating inside too. Would go again! Lovely spot!

We decided to have the Vietnamese salad and a tasting plate of Indian and Sri Lankan dishes. We ordered chai and a glass of soy milk. The Vietnamese salad was very roughly chopped,cabbage, topped...

This restaurant is donation based meaning you pay what you feel like paying. I have tried all the dishes here and would recommend the thali of the day which is very authentic!

This restaurant has a "pay what you think its worth" policy, which is a great concept, and the money also goes to help people who need it. At first I was a bit daunted by having to decide for myself how much to pay, but they do provide a small guide to what different amounts of money can achieve, which... More

Great experience! Great atmosphere, great food and great idea! When i am in Melbourne and the other in Abbotsford is too far, it's the place where i want to go everytime. It's really not too far, just in the suburb of St Kilda. It's a little bit small so if you wanna go, don't do it too late!

The concept is quirky and cool, and certainly drew me and the lady in. But the event fails to back up the hype. A small menu, in a small venue, it does unfortunately have a grotty feel. I liked the food, although it didn't totally fill me. It's just a shame the excitement built up to me ended in disappointment
