$7.00 for all you can eat vegetarian curry with dessert and drinks included too. Amazing value and one of the friendliest places to eat anywhere in the world. Strike up a conversation with a stranger here and you will not regret it.

I would often go here with a friend of mine. We would enjoy the meal and somehow this place would generate the big and deep conversations. It's a spiritual experience more than an eating experience.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
