“Great, healthy, quick food, great prices”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

All vegetarian/vegan food in a cafeteria-style setup so it's really quick to get your meal. Family-owned, kid-friendly and super delicious. I had some visiting relatives find that it was a bit 'spicy' but they've got really mainstream tastes/dining experience. My 3 year old can find things on the menu that she loves. Get a huge variety platter and share it! The samosas are to die for.

“comfort food”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

When I want reaonable, tasty, and warming comfort food, I come to Jagannatha. Peaceful atmosphere where I can bring a book and nibble on my wonderful lunch or dinner, of a warm drink. I tend to appear often.

“Healthy, tasty food at a great price”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

If you love healthy, tasty, vegetarian food then this place is for you! It was one of our favourite places to eat in Nelson and I would recommend it to anyone. The service is wonderful, the food is incredible tasty and there is something for everyone - even die-hard meat lovers. They also offer freshly squeezed veggie juices, smoothies and a variety of sweet treats. The chocolate cake was so good that it was hard to believe it was gluten-free. The venue itself is simple and clean. My husband was so impressed with the food he wanted the recipe book. I would eat there regularly if I lived in Nelson!

“Great vegetarian fare - excellent staff”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Have eaten lunch here several times and highly enjoy the fragrantly herbed and spiced food - good selection and outstanding soups. The wonderful warm service and quiet, clean venue adds to the overall experience.My wife introduced me to the place and we both enjoy it from time to time - separately or together - our lifestyle is to eat vegetarian in about half our meals - so this is a nice fit.
