First Review by KatieBatty

Food let down by staff - Edit

I have been coming to Vegie Kitchen (formerly Enlightened Cuisine) for about 9 years and it still has my favourite dish of all time - curry chicken. It has not changed at all and still remains supreme! All the food is really good and have had and attended many birthday dinners here. Unfortunately the experience is always ruined by one staff member who is quite rude and blunt every time. She has terrible customer service. What a shame. I find this food to be better than any other vegan places in the CBD or Southbank. Expect to have leftovers to take home.

Pros: everything can be made vegan, mock meat heaven, fast service

Cons: blunt/rude staff, slightly overpriced

Bland food - Edit

Very bland food, served by stone faced waiters. The place offers very little in atmosphere in general, with white tiles floors, white walls and fluo lighting. If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, try it of course, but no need to go out of your way - there are far more exciting vegetarian / vegan options available in Melbourne.

Enjoyable dinner - Edit

We had the fried wontons, mock chicken curry (with added vegetables) and the mock duck with plum sauce (with added vegetables) and fried banana with soy ice cream for dessert. It was all enjoyable, though reasonably expensive. Staff weren't sure if ice cream toppings were vegan, but were happy to answer questions and I appreciate honesty about being unsure about an answer. There's quite an extensive menu and I'd be keen to try some more of what they have on offer.

Not that great - Edit

Whole menu can be ordered vegan which is nice. The young waitresses were nice but the older lady (the owner I guess) was quite blunt and made me feel rushed by coming to my table while I hadn't decided what to order yet. She also decided I should order an appetizer because she started turning pages back for me on the menu while I didn't want to. The food was alright but for this price I expected just a little bit more, in terms of taste or quantity.

Friendly staff, my friend and I didn't realise the portion sizes where so big and ordered way too much food, but they are happy to give you take away containers or to bring your own for left overs and was still awesome tasting the next day!!

Pros: huge amount of vegan options , good price, huge portions

Cons: none

Great Veg Restaurant in CBD - Edit

It has been a while since EC was closed. Heard by word of mouth that the venue has re-opened with a new name. We dropped in for dinner last night and were delighted for a nice feed. Staffs were friendly, servings were generous, food was great. It's just great to have this restaurant back in serving nice vegan/vegetarian dishes.

Pros: Good location, Generous serving

Great Asian vegan food - Edit

Enlightened Cuisine has now re-opened as Vegie Kitchen. Menu is pretty similar with lots of vegan options marked. My partner loves the peanut 'chicken' satay sticks. We always order a bunch of mock meat dishes as well as tofu and some fried rice. It's a big restaurant with lots of tables so good for a large party. No split bills allowed.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: A little pricey
