Amazing - Edit

Mandala was the restaurant I was most looking forward to eating at, and I was definitely not disappointed!

Although I went on a Monday for dinner, which is when they only offer pizzas and some of the entrees, I enjoyed the mushroom herb pizza, it was so flavourful and it was like I tasted a new flavour in each bite I took.

The service was great, and I highly recommend checking this place out!

Pros: Amazing vegan food, Great service, Nice layout

YOU MUST EAT HERE - Edit

Where do I start? As we sat down a lady came over grabbed a chair and told us all her favourite things and explained a few of the different items. We ended up choosing nachos and a pizza. Both were amazing! The nachos had a super lovely "cheese" on it and there was some type of tomato salsa that tasted amazing!
The pizza! Oh my god the pizza. The base was made of spelt and so wasn't really chewy or processed like some bases can be. The base sauce was finger lickin' good and the toppings (we got the spicy tofu) all paired together so nicely. We then had some chocolate cake which was served with a really delicious chocolate sauce and the waffles which were super yum as well.
I can't rave enough about the pizza though and it's what I keep craving so if you are only to get 1 thing, try that!

Pros: amazing pizza, super lovely service

gorgeous pizza - Edit

I’ve visited Mandala twice, with two different experiences!

First time was right after lunch time and I could even get service.. I didn’t really understand what the issue was, and the only time anybody was interested of helping was when paying.
THE PIZZA tho, was amazing!
My boyfriend got the margarita, and I’m not a basic bitch so I thought It would be boring, but I ended up eating his!


The other time was on a Tuesday evening when they have “pizza night” so you pay 26$ and get as much pizza as you want.. YOU’D THINK. We had to wait between 10-30 minutes between the slices. It was a torture.
Basically one girl was serving us one slice of a pizza, and then we just sat there waiting for her to ever come again with another slice.. we were really hungry this evening from going on a trip, and we were about to start a HANGRY fight at our table.
The good thing was that we sat there for a REALLY LONG TIME so we ended up trying almost all the pizzas.. I would recommend the Mexicana and Margarita pizza, SO GOOOOOOD!

Pros: amazing pizza, cool place

Cons: service, the waiting at pizza night

Don't bother with the all you can eat - Edit

We went here one time and LOVED the pizza, and the deserts were rad too. Server said to come back for "all you can eat" on Tuesday nights. Made it sound SO good - I mean, she REALLY sold it. So, we rode our bikes down one Tuesday evening. We were super excited for the chance to try all their pizzas and desert pizza. Unfortunately, we were bitterly disappointed. The pizzas were few and far between, and when they came, they were not topped anywhere near as generously as when ordered from the menu. You have no control over the type - just whatever comes out. Servers walk around with pizzas on plates and serve you one TINY sliver of pizza per round. I can understand sharing and moderation - but please don't call this "all you can eat"! On this particular night, there seemed to be friends of the owner/ employees sat outside where we were, but nearer the door. What this meant for us: servers stepped down the stairs from restaurant, and either served their friends, or each person at a table of 5 sat just beside them, and then low and behold - we missed out. Every. Single. Time. The only times we got pizza was for 1 round before those 2 tables arrived, and then if any of those guests declined a slice the servers MAY come to us (but mostly to the other tables). We missed 6 entire rounds IN A ROW without getting one slice! The salad was scant: just a stack of leaves, some dressing - and if we were lucky when the server grabbed a tong-full (is that even a word?!) we might have got half a cherry tomato. And the fries - well, as one reviewer said, they're wedges, and modest ones at that. We got served about 5-6 single skinny little "fries" each. No more! We waited and waited for more pizza to fill us (it's $25 a head) and when we were nearing 2 hours and had endured several embarrassing encounters having to ask the servers for more, we decided to give up and just try the desert pizza. One slice. Nothing to write home about. Thanks - we paid the bill and we'll never be back. Shame, cos we desperately wanted to support this local vegan establishment. If you have to go, just order off the menu; if you brave "all you can eat", don't go hungry!

Pros: Casual

Cons: Misappropriation of the term ALL YOU CAN EAT, Inconsistent quality and service

pizza night - Edit

Tuesday was all you can eat pizza night for $25, not bad but I should have skipped lunch if I had of known that ahah, other than that, the pizza was ok. Its a much healthier version of pizza which is good.

good food but atmosphere/service mediocre - Edit

Went to this place for dinner, was very impressed by the menu, a lot of vegan mains on offer. I liked the cashew cheese on the pizzas, added some flavour/texture without being an overpowering replacement. Unfortunately the acoustics were not appropriate for live music so we couldn't have a conversation (we then got charged for the music!) and the staff weren't great as they forgot one order so it was slow.

Good - Edit

An ok place to take non-vegan friends. The food is pretty basic vegan stuff, all the staples, and they're done well for the most part, but most of it I do at home. Nice kombucha!

Pros: nice fresh food, kombucha on tap

Cons: nothing special, terrible parking, expensive

Dips platter, pizza and lemongrass Kombucha - Edit

I always order this when I go- so amazing. If you go here and don't get the pizza, you're not really getting the full experience. I haven't really tried much of their other foods, I had the tempeh burger the other day which was really nice but as any burger, pretty messy- so don't go in white like I did.

It's hard to try new things because I love my order so much! Each time I go I try and get one new thing.

Pros: Amazing pizza, Great drinks, Awesome atmosphere

Cons: Can be extremely busy so book ahead
