Interesting design but hit-and-miss menu...

This place looks great, with interesting art throughout the entire space, giving a nice cluttered environment that stimulates the senses. Unfortunately the food is a bit hit-and-miss. Out of the handful of vegan options, the vegan pies seemed the most appealing to me, but unfortunately they came topped with mashed root vegetables, including pumpkin, which I hate. My partner stuck with the pie idea and had the Shiitake mushroom one, which he reported was nice, and the little bit I sampled did seem quite tasty. I made the mistake of ordering the nachos, which were cold, as in chilled – fine, maybe that’s their take on it – but also bland and unexciting. I might come back to try something else, but not sure what else on the menu really appeals. However, the design of the place is great and they have the best toilet I’ve seen in a while.

Pros: Great space and art
Cons: Food varies in quality

Vegan meat too real

Posted on 08 / 06 / 2014

I ordered a vegan beef pie with vegetables and salad takeaway. The salad was spinach, sauce, and mushrooms. The pie was in a container instead of pastry, with large beef chunks, peas, and a potato carrot mash on top. It wasn't what I was expecting for beef and vegetable pie with mash, as I had expected lots of veges, a bit of soy beef mince, in a pastry, with mash top.

In the end, I left the pie, as it brought up that awkward moment of... this is too real for me... in fact, perhaps it is real and they lied... eitherway, I don't want to even think that I'm eating a dead person right now, or want to eat something so processed. So just left it.

Besides the meal, the staff were very attentive. They have chessboards in there, and seem like a bunch of fun.

Will come back again, and just get something else as they do seem like a good place. Unfortunately, this time didn't work out too well.

Haven't tried any dish but their bliss balls are really tasty and more creative than what you usually find. The place is cosy and decorated nicely. Staff is super friendly.

Pros: courtyard, bliss balls , friendly staff
Cons: a bit pricey

New mostly vegan place in surry hills

This new vegetarian restaurant has been taken over by health conscious vegan models so you can be sure your food is safe and clean. They don't use nasty sugars and cooking oils.

Their food is full of vegetables, good carbs and cheap plus great coffee to suite. Excellent
