Vegetarian menu but vegan food - Edit

Unlike other recent reviews, I ate here for the first time recently and was very impressed (although a bit confused re. why they hadn't updated website and menu to show that it is now vegan).

Note that half the seating is near the kitchen and half in the covered courtyard which is much more pleasant - if booking, I suggest you request to sit there.

Time for a revamp - Edit

It has been quite some time between visits. The restaurant is now all vegan and seems to be doing very well a few months into their transition. Surprisingly, they are still handing out their old vegetarian menu and awkwardly explaining that it's all vegan. The current menu has been in place for a few years now, is a bit tired and could really do with a refresh.

Would love to see Vegilicious tweak their current menu and perhaps make some fresh additions. It's so close to being really good but somehow is still missing the mark a little.

Potential... still - Edit

Vegilicious has always appeared to be a cut above the rest, but rarely actually lives up to that promise. The menu never changes (even now that they are vegan, they are still using the old vegetarian menu in the restaurant o.O )
A good location that has been well designed (as long as you do not sit in the front corner where the rain comes in) that could be put to better use.

One of my favourite restaurants - Edit

Edit: now fully vegan so bumped from 4 stars to 5 :)

Always had great experiences. The vegan platter is outstanding and the best value for money outside of the city. The staff can sometimes be a bit slow, yes, but they're so lovely and I do believe they are trying their best. The food has always been top-notch and the decor and ambience is awesome. The menu covers a range of dishes and they offer takeaway containers for 50c to pack yourself, or bring your own!

Pros: All vegan! great prices and awesome decor

Cons: nothing

Amazing food, nice atmosphere - Edit

This is one of my favourite restaurants. I've been here multiple times with my whole family (some of who eat meat) and everyone absolutely loves it.

There's a range of different types of food and you're bound to find something you'll love. Just warm, hearty, delicious goodness.

It's also a nice restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Some of the staff aren't too bright but they're nice enough and easily forgivable.

It's the kind of place that you'll go to once and then you'll keep wanting to go back. It's not like a lot of vegan restaurants who just rely on gimmicks. This is a good place to eat, plain and simple.

Pros: Delicious food, Nice, comfortable atmosphere, Well priced

Cons: Some staff aren't too bright but they're all nice

Delicious! And they are going all vegan! - Edit

This place is great, such a variety on the menu! Been there before, this time got a special, the broccoli and mushroom lasagne. Sooo delicious and came with a big salad which was yummy. My partner got the soup of the day - pumpkin - which came with crispy bread. More on the expensive side but very delicious. You can now get vegan versions of the gnocchi and mousakka on request, as well as all desserts. They are working right now to make eggplant parmigiana vegan and then the whole menu will be vegan!

Pros: Going all vegan! , Loads of options

Cons: On the pricey end

First Rate - Edit

We have dined here twice in the past 10 months,and both occasions were excellent.The most recent time was 2 weeks ago and we shared the vegan platter.The food is varied in type,but universally tasty and generous in portion size.The atmosphere is inviting and the staff on both occasions were friendly and helpful with ingredient enquiries.Vegilicious is also great value for money,only $200 for 4 with 3 courses,wine and coffee on our last visit.This now overtakes The Beet in Byron as our favourite Australian restaurant.

Pros: Brilliant flavours, Friendly staff, Very good portion size and I eat big

Cons: Could easily be all vegan,but isn't, Shocking parking

Overpriced and drenched in oil. - Edit

Arrived early but the only table (bar) available was in the entrance, a draughty, garage-like foyer. We were told it would be a long wait for food (it was a Friday) despite only being half-full.

I ordered a "Crunchy Pide" which I believe is a Turkish dish, and I looked forward to delicious bread. When it arrived (ten minutes after my friends' meals), it was a skewered pile of oily veg held together with cheap bread; basically a slippery club-sandwich. It was accompanied by some defeated-looking, sorry chips which tasted like they'd been left out in the rain, then zapped for 20 seconds in a microwave.

Don't order the 'Fat Bastard' wine as it's overpriced and is akin to drinking Chinese vinegar.


When we paid, we weren't asked how our meals were and I just wanted to race home to the loo. The only thing right about the place was the waitress' estimation of a bloody long wait.

Pros: The English waitress was pleasant and apologetic

Cons: Overpriced, Waited ages, Saturated in oil like a drowned rat.

bad waiter experience - Edit

Had a very bad experience here
- First time
- Waited 40 minutes for entrees (came undercooked)
- Waiter forgot my drink order
- I ordered baked mushrooms vegan option
And received non vegan option. I asked the waiter if is was real cheese and he responded immediately with "yes" and smirk. No apology or there was a mix up, the waiter said "well the damage has been done" implying I should just eat it and followed that with "I'm vegan too" which makes less sense to me.
My friend and i stood up spoke to the lady in charge who was lovely and helpful. She explained to us he is new waiter and apologised. We said we were happy to pay for the drinks which she was ok with and we left.
The other staff were nice and the food we did have was fine. The venue was pretty but I won't be going back.

Pros: nice venue, MOST staff are nice

Cons: one bad waiter with an attitude , service is slow

great vegan options and decor - Edit

Attended here half a dizen times since it opened a few years ago and have always been impressed with the food, decor and atmosphere, with plenty of reasonably priced vegan options. Unfortunately, up until recently, we found the service lacking, with the need to fetch our own menus, track down a waiter, ordered items never arriving and booked table being given away to walk-ins whilst we continued to stand around waiting.
However, last weekend we were served by a waiter named Stephano, whose exemplary customer service made up for the past. Stephano was friendly, happy, attentive, showed sound knowledge of the menu and great initiative. When serving our soy chai lates, with a large warm smile, Stephano noted he had made them himself with love - and it showed!

Pros: many vegan options, great decor, reasonably priced

Cons: hit and miss service, hiring friends to wait tables doesn't always work

Incredible food and atmosphere - Edit

This restaurant has definitely set a high standard for me and vegetarian/vegan restaurants. I've never been to a restaurant more authentic than this, everyone that worked there I felt as if I knew them and was friends with them as they were so friendly and talkative. When I walked in I was greeted by a very sweet woman where she showed us where to sit and took our orders. When my smoothie came out, I was not expecting it to be so large, and taste as incredible as it did. It was quite possibly the best smoothie I've ever had. For my dinner I had the curry of the day, a lentil chickpea and broccoli curry. It was definitely the best lentil curry I had ever had. Throughout the restaurant there are colourful candles, and posters, and above the restaurant is an art gallery and a yoga studio. Such an amazing place.

Beautiful experience - Edit

My girlfriend took me to Vegelicious for my birthday as I'm a massive foodie and had never been - as soon as I walked in I felt special, the staff were amazing to talk to, beautiful customer service, so helpful with the menu also as I'm super indecisive and just want to eat everything, so we went for the 2 person Vegan share platter and my god it was incredible!
Such an amazing array of foods, great flavours and the perfect amount to leave you completely satisfied and definitely not underfed. Great value for money aswell as the share plates only $20 per person - so perfect place to go with a group and chuck $20 in each for a large selection of foods!
We then treated ourselves to the Lemon Vegan Cheesecake with Coconut ice cream and it was the best vegan cheesecake I've ever had (and I've had a lot) all beautifully presented and I left feeling so happy and full of love from my dinner experience!
I really couldn't flaw my night, it was perfect, I can't wait to return again and again!
Oh and also it has such as amazing feel to it, I felt like I was relaxing at a girlfriends house, very comfortable and homey!

Pros: Food, Service, Presentation

Amazing Food - Edit

My taste buds we're delighted we had the vegan platter, highly recommend. Would of been 5 stars if the service matched, it took 10 minutes for a menu once seated and another 30 minutes before drink order, but food was worth the wait.

Pros: Menu variety, Food

Cons: Service

Some of the best vegetarian food in Melbourne - Edit

The food here is understated, but full of variety, freshness and taste! Great value for money, laid back (love the courtyard) and this place in a league of its own compared to other more traditional veg restaurants either side of the Yarra. Worth a visit - get the share plate, highly recommended

Great food but book ahead! - Edit

We've been a couple of times and enjoyed our food both times. It's busy, but the food is worth the wait. We've tried the burger, pancakes, mushrooms, and the amazing share platter. Everything has been really yummy. Be warned that the cakes are very rich too! Salted caramel cake is very decadent.

The waiters always seem very rushed so it can be tricky attracting attention, but they are lovely when you do get hold of one

Pros: Nice atmosphere with lots of plants, Yummy food, Friendly staff

Cons: Can be busy and a bit chaotic at times

Food good enough to tempt a Northsider to St Kilda - Edit

As someone who lives on the North side of Melbourne I seldom cross the river to the other side of town, but now that Vegilicious has opened a restaurant I have reason to venture into St Kilda. I have eaten at Vegilicious food stalls at festivals around Melbourne and I have eaten at the Vegilicious restaurant twice. On both occasions we have had the share platter. It's a great option as it means you can sample a bit of everything. It's a huge amount of food, but everything is so delicious we just took our time and slowly ate it all. The only complaint I have is that after sharing the platter I had no room for desert.

Pros: Great atmosphere, Friendly staff, Vegan share platter

Cons: It's on the wrong side of town!
