“Best Vegetarian Lunch Imaginable”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

As vegetarians, my wife and I have had lunch in many vegetarian restaurants in a number of countries. Lunch at Kalachandji's was simply the best. There are plentiful fresh, raw vegetables and the cooked dishes are as fresh and delicious. Not to be missed is their special tamarind drink - light, fresh, and delicious with a meal. Lunch is served cafeteria style - all you care to eat - and they bring your choice of desserts and endless tamarind drink refills to the table. A wonderful meal for $10 per person!!
The real bonus to the food was the seating. We chose a booth in the courtyard, which is enclosed on all four sides by the building, but open to the sky with a large tree growing in the center. True dining al fresco on a pleasant day.

“Kalachandji's GREAT Food Good Karma!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have gone to this restaurant since it opened at least 25 years ago. It's delicious, it's fresh and the atmosphere is calming, friendly and very peaceful. I wish it were open on Mondays other than that it's great that it's open 6 days a week. LOVE IT! From Vegetarian Indian cuisine to Italian and Mexican Vegetarian dishes, Delicious! Always a wonderful salad bar and yummy tamarind tea.

“Great Vegetarian Food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are looking for something a little different, Kalachandji's would be a good choice. The cafeteria styled, vegetarian, buffet type lunch is served in a cozy little restaurant located in East Dallas in the Hare Krishna temple. The food was excellent and the atmosphere pleasant. I will return to this spot when I"m in the area.

“Used to be fabulous”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

the food is still as good as it can get. But the donation pricing has gotten a bit high and is no longer a donation. And the atmosphere has changed since the remodeling. It's as if the success has ruined the charm it once had. But it's still best veggie place in Dallas
