    Fantastic food with an attentive staff. Came out super quick! The curry had way more veggies than I expected and the satay was absolutely the show stealer.

    This place never disappoints, food is relish and the stuff are always very welcoming. I am not a vegetarian, but still love everything from their menu. My favorite has to be the green Laksa! Yum!!

    Fantastic food and service. The decor could do with a revamp and some music would add to the atmosphere. But I wouldn't let that put you off going there.

    The staff and the food are always great here. The meals are always consistent, not over the top and well worth the price. I think that I am very lucky to have this restaurant in the neighbourhood.

    Really tasty vegetarian food, with clear statement of gluten-free, vegan, no onion, etc. on the menu. A lucky find, and we’ll definitely be back.

    I go to vegetarian restaurants all over the world and “the Shak” is still my favourite. The food is wonderfully original, beautifully healthy, delicious and the service is always no fuss and fast. I think if they invested more in decor etc, this place would rate among the best restaurants in Melbourne but I’m so glad they don’t! Truly a still remarkably undiscovered gem after nearly 40 yrs (in Carlton - so glad they opened Sth Melb too a while back). The Satay has never changed and never been off the menu and with good reason - it is superb

About the restaurant

Vegetarian’s paradise This highly popular restaurant opened its second outlet to cater for the vast array of food-loving people (vegetarian- and non-vegetarian alike) who appreciate fresh produce, seasonal menu changes and good old-fashioned, hearty cuisine. Entirely vegetarian based, this wholesome treat of a place tempts even the most hard-core carnivores with its excellent menu. A huge amount of the menu is also gluten free as well as having dairy-free and vegan options. Try some delicious polenta triangles, avocado magic, or mushroom agnolotti. The dining area is fresh and streamlined with timber blinds and furnishings, and interesting feature walls throughout, using earthy, warm colours. A place to come with groups or a small get together with friends, they also have an excellent upstairs area available for private hire should you wish to celebrate your next event here. Open for lunches and dinners Tuesday-Saturday, ensure you book to avoid missing out! Best Dish: Lasagne Conchita
