I'd heard about Shakahari in Carlton back in the 80's and based on my experiences in Vegetarian Cuisine where boiled vegetables are drowned in gravy and infused with Lentils, I was going with a couple of friends with a quiet discomfort. Well, fear no more! This was great of epic proportions. I started with a Matcha Matcha, a cold salad... More

Five of us had dinner at Shakahari Too in South Melbourne last night. We all had different menus ordered and none of us was in the least disappointed with their choice. Staff was observant and friendly. We also liked the Bhutan88 cocktail.

Treated ourselves with a nice veg dinner and the food was amazing! Full of flavour and portions were generous enough. Place was cold and lacked ambiance. Service was good but not engaging. It was a week night so maybe better on a weekend.

Sister restaurant of the long standing Shakahari in Carlton. Delicious food, vegan, vegetarian and even gluten free options. Can't go past the croquettes. Fantastic service too.

Visited Shakahari Too for dinner. Setting OK, waiting staff a real asset. On the way to the rear dining room kitchen was visible - looked nice and clean (tick). Ordered NONYA LODEH and SPAGHETTI CIAOCIAO and paid $44 for 2 dishes. Nonya Lodeh was sanitised for Western taste - ie light on spice and did not taste genuine and was... More

Unique vegetarian and Vegan restaurant with an excellent menu. The food is fresh, professionally presented and sooo delicious. The staff are really friendly, this together with the pleasant ambiance and quality food and wine at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

A delicious, varied menu with staff that is very accommodating of vegan diets and gluten-free diets (and even vegan gluten-free diets). Our group of 5 which included three non-vegetarians was uniformly very satisfied in all ways.

I went there with a friend. She was not vegetarian but wanted to try. We ordered avocado and dumplings as starter, I had laksa as main, we also had tofu as dessert. All of them are great. There are probably 7 main dishes, all of which look good. The boss was extremely friendly and always came to our desk to... More

I am glad we came here. We live out of town, and needed to find a place for lunch; this place comes highly recommended amongst friends and on TripAdvisor, and it lives up to its reputation. Booking was quick and easy with dimmi online portal. We had a few dishes between the seven of us, and thoroughly enjoyed them all.... More
