This a definitely a place worth visiting whether you are a carnivore, vegetarian or vegan. The meat eaters will not miss the lack of meat as all the dishes have been creatively devised to satisfy anyone.
The food is so well designed to give you layering of flavours and textures and are protein rich so you feel very satisfied.

It is definitely worth trying the pulled Jack fruit - just try a small side portion for $4 - as it such a unique dish - I loved it but my friend preferred the garbanzo chips (chick pea).

Everything we had was really tasty, combining so many flavours and textures that every mouthful was slightly different.

The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and there is a nice courtyard out the back. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
I would recommend reserving a table on a Friday/Saturday night but there

My husband and I had a lunch and dinner at this restaurant. The food was very unusual for a vegetarian restaurant and was really delicious. For dinner, we had a salad and veggie burger. It was the best veggie burger either of us have had, and the salad was an unusual combination of grains, nuts and greens that was really tasty and filling.

The lunch was not quite as delicious as the dinner, but still very good.

The restaurant is casual and quirky, and we highly recommend it.

Absolutely loved this place. The menu items were exciting and really caught our attention. The food was colourful and full of flavour, all put together so well. Put that together with great drinks, fast friendly service and cool decor, this was a winner. Shame we weren't in Nelson for longer would have come back to try more.

We took an overseas friend and long time vegan for an early dinner. He was ecstatic that he could choose ANYTHING from the menu, then took ages to decide because it alll sounded so good, and it was. Every dish was tasty and filling and the service was friendly. Thank you

All the best from all the team here at East St
