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 food at Shakahari is always delicious. I highly recommend the laksa and satay. The ambience is excellent and it would be a great place to visit for special occasions.
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.
My favourite restaurant and a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion or just catch up with a dear friend or friends. The food is divine and the service is great and I love the atmosphere at Shakahari.
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
Wonderful vegetarian food with amazing Asian twist. Refreshing take on vegetarian food. Great service and a lovely, relaxing atmosphere.
Tasty vegetarian. Diverse and interesting offerings
Food was delicious. We ordered Laksa, Paella, curry and a salad. Paella was our favourite! Service was great, we were sharing the dishes and they split the serving of Laksa for us into 4 little bowls! Highly recommended!
Tasty veggie options, lacking a bit of atmosphere when we went at lunch but I imagine it's different at dinner time.
Cosy and relatively quiet with some of the best vegan food in Melbourne along with friendly, unimposing yet helpful staff.
The food was good but the restaurant’s acoustics are bad so hard to hear others. A few waitstaff errors but still left a tip.
The food was outstanding. We had one Vegan and one Gluten Free guest and they both found lots to choose from. We were all extremely happy with our meals which were delicious, fresh and of exceptional quality.
Probably the best vegan food in Melbourne.
Thanks for a beautiful meal ! Very creative. Loved the avocado entree
Thoroughly enjoyed my meal and experience
Fantastic vegan food, innovative and reasonably priced. This is our favourite restaurant.

I’ve been to Shakahari Too many times and they never disappoint. The food is always delicious and the staff is great!
Food never disappoints and service is impeccable
Very tasty vegetarian meal!
Nice place, worthwhile a try
Tasty food reasonably priced
Really good food :)
What a lovely surprise! Lunch in South Melbourne is slightly outside my usual City or St Kilda radius. But I had a really delicious lunch with wine on a recent weekday. The enak enak curry is generously brilliant! I look forward to revisiting.
Awesome vegetarian dishes, great service
Very good food, friendly efficient service
Great food and service. Had a great meal celebrating a birthday.
Delicious vegetarian food for a meat eater, food is fresh, full of flavour and well cooked.
The satay and croquettes were really nice, but I don't recommend any of the entrees.
Same dishes, different day and different quality.
Excellent food and service.
Very tasty and interesting menu, definitely worth a try!
The food was delicious and pretty. The staff were also so nice.
as non vegetarian family we tried this place because of Dimmi offer and it is a really pleasant surprise. The dishes are well presented and each dish has its own unique taste. The highlight dish is the avocado magic. We also enjoyed the other dishes: laksa, curry and satay. Really really recommend this place.
