First Review by AndyT

Love the outdoor eating area - Edit

My partner and I come here on a Sunday reasonably often. We always go for lunch but need to get here on the days when they have vegan hoppers! I really enjoy sitting outside and we both had iced chocolates today which are chocolatey! I had ootapam and my partner had a dosa. Both came with a piece of cake too. If someone wanted to try a lentil branch, I'd suggest this one.

Pros: Outside area, Nice staff, Flavours

Wholesome, honest food - Edit

Great service and good food. The front of this eatery is quite cosy but walk through to the back and you will find a spacious outdoor area, well suited to larger groups of diners.

Will be back to sample more!

Pros: Good food, Great staff

Fantastic. - Edit

This is my favourite of all the Lentils. It's set up like the St Kilda one where you order from a menu, instead of the buffet style of Abbotsford and Footscray. I find that the food here is tastier than the buffet ones, and unlike St Kilda, they do different daily specials and desserts.

It's much more spacious than the St Kilda restaurant, and is really cosy. I'd often come here with my friends for lunch or to hang out and have a coffee. Lentils goes by a 'pay what you can' policy, which we found really helpful as we were often broke. It was nice to still have somewhere to go when we didn't have much money, and when we couldn't pay much on one visit, we would make sure we paid extra the next time we were there. this place feels like home to me, and I absolutely love it here.

Also, the last time I went in the staff said they have changed to a 100% vegan restaurant!

Pros: Tasty, Cosy, Friendly

- Edit

I go to the lentils in abbotsfort quite often but as this one is just as far away I gave it a go as well.
First of all: The food is delicious! Maybe sometimes even better than at the convent, simply because it seems a bit more creative.
The atmosphere is different of course but this one is definitely one of my favourites in Melbourne.

Now serves breakfast as well!

Pros: friendly staff, pay as you feel

Awesome alternative vegan-friendly place - Edit

I have been to Lentil as Anything's Preston restaurant, and I was quite impressed.

On top of their social engagement, their awesome alternative and cooperative flair, the fact that nearly every dish available can be made vegan and their pay-as-you-like concept, the food was actually delicious, beautifully presented and filling. Full score in my book.

I went there with a less-alternative-oriented, non-vegan colleague, and she also was favourably impressed. If I was not just visiting, but living in Melbourne, I would definitely visit this place or one of their other restaurants very often.

We had the burger with fried potatoes (wonderful, and actually quite healthy), the roasted vegetable salad and one of their Indian-inspired starters, and everything was delicious. Highly advised.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Delicious food, Social engagement
