Description: The Lotus-Heart is dedicated to conscious living and healthy eating, striving to create a global cuisine naturally. We use the freshest ingredients, locally grown and organic where possible, pure vegetable oils and vegetarian cheese, and avoid the use of microwaves unless specifically requested due to time constraints. We respect and honour the choices and requirements of our customers and in addition to our pure vegetarian fare, we offer options for vegan, gluten-free, raw food diets, and are more than happy to cater for specific allergy needs. Children are most welcome and we have a children's menu and high chairs available.

“Favourite vegetarian restaurant”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We were in Christchurch for a day and we went here for lunch after reading the reviews on trip advisor. I was a little worried about finding it but it was very easy to get to from the city centre. We walked there in about 10mins from the city centre. There was a nice atmosphere and an amazing choice of food. I was there with someone who's not a vegetarian but he loved his food too! The portions were good sizes and we left there very satisfied. It was great value for money too. We both thought it was the best vegetarian restaurant we'd ever been too. I would definitely recommend this place!

“Vegan delight”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Was in christchurch for three days and ate at lotus heart each day for lunch. If they were open for dinner would have gone then to. Cant rate this place high enough. Best selection of vegan food we have found anywhere. We will be back... can see another holiday in christchurch coming up just to visit again.

“Unique atmosphere to dine in”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I love the peaceful atmosphere of Lotus Heart and although I am not normally vegetarian, I really enjoy every item on the menu, especially the Dosa. The team are very efficient and calm and their calm demeanor adds to the atmosphere of the cafe. Happy dining

“Peacefully The Best”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

If you want to have a meal that will soothe your soul, ease the tensions of the day and give you that sated feeling, than Lotus Heart is the place to go.
The welcome upon entry is nice and will make you smile. A review of the menu and specials will give you a lot to think about oas well as decide on.

Once you have your meal and the dessert, you will feel relaxed, sated and ready to face the rest of your day or your evening.

This is a restaurant that will quickly become a favorite. It has become one of mine.
