FANTASTIC food - Edit

Wow. We have been to vegetarian restaurants all over the world, and this humble place in Cabramatta is right up there. The food was exquisitely spiced, interesting, satisfying, pefectly cooked. Cant recommend it enough!!

Pros: Unusual dishes, Great price, Relaxed atmosphere

Good choice - Edit

Although I have been eating at the original Green Palace in Newtown (now renamed Blossoming Lotus, http://www.happycow.net/reviews/blossom-lotus-newtown-6173) for years, this was my first visit to the Cabramatta branch. The Newtown outlet focuses on the ready-made dishes at the counter as you enter, with the cooked-to-order menu as back-up; this one makes more of the menu, but also has a "hot bar", offering rice or noodles with one, two or three choices, for $6, $8 or $10. Smaller ready-made selection than at Newtown, with more emphasis on mock meats, but the woman at the table next to me looked very pleased with her trayful, and I will try it next time. I ordered from the menu: pad kee mao (drunk noodle): spicy sir-fried broad rice noodles with mock chicken, tofu, chilli, broccoli, tomato and herbs, at $10. Good and filling. Also had a soya ice cream at $5. Green tea came automatically, and was free. The menu is heavy on mock meats, with appetisers at $6 to $10, soups at $5 or $10 depending on size, salads at $10, noodle dishes at $10 and main courses at $12. All the many other vegan places I know in Cabramatta are Vietnamese, so this makes a pleasant change (including among the locals; the menu has Vietnamese translations). You can get to it by walking up Cabramatta Road West from the railway station, or cutting through Belvedere Arcade from John Street. A local's video blog (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXTMgavcydc)shows this approach. The place shown in 2012 as I Vege is now Quan an Chay Veggie House, but the excellent Just Green vegan foodstore is still where shown, facing Green Palace. The video shows exterior and interior of Green Palace. Well worth a visit. Just wish I lived less far away.

Pros: Good choices, good value, friendly staff, comfortable seating, all vegan

Cons: heavy emphasis on mock meats

Sensational Thai food that is all VEGAN :) - Edit

This place is phenomenal. The food is as authentic and even better than a usual thai restaurant that uses meat products etc. The food is of an exceptional quality and the taste is truly authentic.
Since discovering this joint, we have been 3 times in the last 2 weeks.
Highly recommend the Banana Flower Salad - it is not on the menu but ask the staff and they will prepare it.
Their Pad See Ew is fantastic - lovely smokey flavour and the mock meat they use is deceptively like the real thing.
The Green Curry packs a fiery punch but is well worth the sweat mo'. Pack an appetite. Very reasonably priced. You will not be disappointed.

Pros: Exceptional food, Authentic flavours, Cheap

A great place for vegans, vegos & omnivores alike - Edit

This is one of my favourite places to dine with non-vegan friends. The food is delicious- flavourful, fresh and aromatic.

Definitely try the jungle curry and duck salad.

Pros: Great for Omnivores, Extensive Menu

Great classy Thai restaurant out west! - Edit

A group of 6 of us tried out Green Palace, I must say the place is lovely, and when you tire from just eating Vietnamese in Cabramatta, then Thai is certainly refreshing! In fact, out west we really don't have that many options, certainly not a pure veg Thai option, so this is a welcome addition.

The big favourite of the night was Pad Prik King, the duck was great, the flavours fantastic. The Roasted Duck Curry was also a hit as was the Panang Curry.

Recommend this place to all your friends! I was first told about it opening up by Chantel in Just Green Grocery shop across from Green Palace (amazing store) - Green Palace is a really nice place for a birthday party, the decor is much nicer than the very plain decor in all the other veg restaurants in Cabramatta - and the food equally as flavoursome and enjoyable.

We left absolutely stuffed. Please note though that they are NOT open on Tuesdays - please don't go on a Tuesday and then be disappointed!

All in all a fabulous addition to West/South West Veg Dining options - really glad this one opened up here!

As for parking - we generally find street parking or parking in the public carpark on the corner of Hill St and Cabramatta Road (you can also enter from John Street) - a busy day we have found is Sunday lunchtime. But for a weeknight dinner, generally parking is a breeze!

Pros: Food, Decor, portions

An old faithful now out west - Edit

Before you even step in it makes you smile - it is plastered in "vegan" signs that can't be missed.

Just like the Green Palace in Newtown except that you will be extremely happy to take your friends here: it's fresh, vibrant, a true restaurant rather than take-out feel, in the middle of a fascinating multicultural hub and you will not be automatically seen as a hippy. (No offense to hippies - I love you too.) Very family friendly too but just as suitable for couples, groups, etc.

Like it's Newtown cousin the food tastes great. But here it is also presented very nicely; the new crockery, etc. do make it a nicer experience.

Plus, as an added bonus, Just Green vegan supermarket is about 10 metres away from the front door so before/after your meal you can do the weekly shop too. And if you're not happy with Green Palace there are at least 3 other vegan restaurants within a 2 minute walk.

Parking in Cabramatta can be less than fun though!

It's been open for a couple of months and we've been here a few times already - so it *is* good. So happy to have another vegan option.

Pros: Variety, Taste, Atmosphere, Vegan
