The menu at Shakahari was difficult to choose from because everything was tempting and ntiguing. The meals ultimately were appetizing and refreshing. I am going vegetarian! 😀

The dining experience in the Lygon Street area is not what it once was, but Shakahari does stand out. I eat here a few times a year when I stay in the area. It is usually busy so I book ahead. The service is good...More
