We went their for a birthday dinner and had high expectations. Being vegetarian we always look forward to trying new vege restaurants. We found the two sitting option very inconvenient. You had to come around 6pm or after 8.15pm. One is too early and one too late for a week night with children.

The food was not brought out at the same time. So we would get one main delivered at time so everyone had to wait a while for other meals to arrive. Also I think the food is overpriced especially entree. Three small rice paper rolls cost $14.

We went to Harvest in Balmain for my birthday where the prices are similar but the service and food is far superior.

Having been to NQ before, I was excited to take some family and friends to try the good vego food. We were seated in the corner of the room and forgotten for most of the evening. The waitresses did not know the dishes very well and brought our entrees and mains out all together so the dinner felt rushed. We were not offered any drinks or desserts as they had forgotten to order more cakes.

My partner and i came here on recomendation and were very happy with our experience. The restaurnant is very small so a booking is necessary. I enjoyed the food , It is very fresh healthy and very refreshing ! I think you should try this restaurant at least once ( especially if quality and nutrition are one of your priorities ) to get the vibe of it all and perhaps you will be plesently surprised like myself and will go back!

The food is very good. We were all very happy with our meals.

Unfortunately the restaurant is poorly run, the waitresses don't smile and are at times rude. 2 people at our table received their meals 40minutes later than the other 2. The menus are falling apart as well as some of the furniture. They also ran out of 3 meals on the menu and instead of informing you prior to choosing your meals it is left to you to notice the advisement written on a small chalkboard on the wall.

The tables are too small to fit the entree plates provided as well as entrees. The waitresses are too clueless to think of bringing the entrees out one at a time so they can rotate them and thus fit them on the table. Instead they took one of our entree plates and replaced it with the entree, defeating the purpose of providing entree plates to begin with.

Just for laughs they display bottled juices at the bar but if you would like to have a juice, good luck, they don't actually serve them.

To conclude, excellent food, but the rest is a shambles.

My friend had suggested me this veggie place and we loved it. We were at the outdoor backside which was cosy and intriguing with gramophone playing, mismatched crockery and a few vintage style boards, books n decor.
Service was excellent and the food very healthy n tasty. The rice rolls, dumplings and amaranth grain dishes are a hit! :) Its in the same concept of Iku whole foods but with a diff variety and a lovely dine in experience.

Plan to try the lettuce pockets next time....
