Great option for the mall/cbd - Edit

It would be nice to have a boutique vegan caf around every corner in the city but if you're shopping or in the CBD really this place is great! Their bowls are hearty and satisfying, really tasty salad, raw foods, fermented etc. Not the cheapest but ok I think for the quality.

I only knocked a star off because;
a) Availability of produce: they were out of quinoa, got couscous instead, no biggie, but also the edamame beans we ordered were meant to come with a dressing and wakame seaweed. 99% certain it was straight up beans, had no other flavour - probably would have ordered something else if I'd known
b) Plastic usage: dessert slices are in plastic pots, even if you are eating in and, due to unavailability of bowls (yeah ??!), they were also serving dahl etc in plastic pots. Seemed wasteful to me, probably won't bother some.

Pros: Vegan , Fresh, tasty, filling

Cons: Too much plastic

Good vegan mall food court option - Edit

The food at Supercharger is seriously tasty and a good option when you're in the city and in a rush. As one of the previous reviews points out it can be a bit complicated to order and it's very expensive for what you get ($13+), I'm always hungry an hour after.

Pros: Fully vegan, central location, delicious food

Cons: Very expensive for portion size

excellent food - Edit

Really healthy vegan food that taste great.
A lot of reviews mention how confusing the menu can be but they also have "all ready" sets for a fair price ( 13,9$, maybe they introduced that recently).
Had one of them and really enjoyed it , the portion was also generous and I left with the belly full but not feeling heavy .
Recommended !

Room for improvement - Edit

There is a serious lack of vegan eateries within the CBD, so Supercharger is a one genuine option. Service tends to be prompt and staff are friendly.

There is a fairly good range of meal options to choose from however I have often found their ordering system to be overly complicated. One is given a pencil to fill in box choices from a larger list. What has made this process more difficult is that none of their food items on display are labelled. This means ordering is not exactly user-friendly. (The exception is their smoothies, juices and desserts section which are labelled.)

It is disappointing that their food is not organic.


Pros: In the heart of the CBD

Cons: Confusing ordering system

Feel good feed - Edit

The kind of food you can enjoy but know is good for you, some are a bit too healthy tasting. The hot daal and curry is the best!

Pros: affordable , large menu range

Wow ! - Edit

What a fantastic vegan venue in a food court. We visited twice for lunch over a long weekend and tried four of the six set menus. Totally delicious and very healthy with a huge range of flavours. Adding drinks and desserts (vegan blueberry cheesecake in a jar !) really adds to the cost so be careful not to get carried away.
They have a customer loyalty program which is great for regulars.

Pros: Sooo good and healthy, Delicious and big choice, Customer loyalty program

Cons: Can get expensive if you don't have self-control

Great quick lunch - Edit

This is a great spot to go for a quick lunch that is actually healthy. The food is yummy with lots of choices snd it's all vegan! Being a food hall, the atmosphere is never going to be my favourite, but as food halls go it's a pretty nice one with lots of natural light...

really excellent - Edit

Great value for a healthy lunch. I recommend the tomato eggplant stew, and the smashed avocado.
I think they could be a bit more generous with the quinoa/ other 'bases' but that's my only issue. I'll be coming back here soon :)

Pros: value, taste, vegan!

Good, clean, healthy food - Edit

I've been to Supercharger a couple times over the past few months or so.

Each time, I've tried something different, trying to mix up a bunch of different things I think will go well together. And whilst I do like the quality and healthfulness of the food, I'd rather just be given some set menus to choose from, as I find it really confusing to know how to mix it up myself.

I do really like your food, but please create some set menus to simplify it.

Cheers

Pros: Tasty, Healthy, Good value

Cons: Confusing

Place is also very clean and relaxing to sit in.

Amazing. - Edit

Heaps of different choices to satisfy any cravings.There is no better way to satisfy your hunger after a day in the city than going to Supercharger. I'd go there for dinner too if they were open at night.

Super Healthy! Super Value! Super Yummy! - Edit

Just like Supercharger in the CBD except you won't have to share a table with someone eating non-veeg food. It's so amazing and such good value. I love everything on the menu. Holy Cacao, I keep having dreams about that raw caramel slice. Aloi Maak!!

Pros: Healthy, A lot of dishes for the one low price, ALL VEGAN!!!!!!

Excellent vegan food - Edit

One would not normally associate quality vegan food with a food court... Supercharger is the exception. Located in the upmarket Emporium shopping complex, Supercharger provides a build your own vegan experience. The food is tasty and there is an excellent selection of raw, simmers, proteins and sauces. They will also cater for special needs such as salads without sauces.
The food is impressive and you can comfortably take non-vegans there (particularly since they can choose food from another outlet if they are desperate).
For city dining it represents reasonable value for money particularly since the food is made fresh.
One nice touch is that they use compostible bio-cutlery for take-away.
Drinks and sweets are a bit on the pricey side, but then again I suspect their rent is not cheap either.

Pros: Fresh and tasty, Accessible, Wide variety

Cons: Drinks and sweets pricey, Food court can be noisy/smelly

Best $14.50 I've spent! - Edit

Great taste AND value for money. REAL food at a mall food court- how refreshing!

Staff (Bella) were really helpful as a first timer and ran through their menu and options for me.

Such a pain of a location- in a city mall, but the staff just advised me a new Prahran location has opened today! I'll be back for sure!

Pros: value for money, helpful staff, meal sizes (big!),

Cons: location.

Charged with cha cha cha - Edit

Fresh, tasty and something a little different, Supercharger is a food court vendor with a difference.

The challenge lies in getting the flavour combos right (you pick them yourself) unless you go for the set menu options.

Worth a few visits to explore all the variations.

Pros: Super fresh, Tasty
