    Awesome place to go for vegetarian food with a mix on Indian food. Very cheap and yummy meals. They have specials for food packs. Depending what you feel like eating you can choose. Also they have some interesting drinks to choose from which are all healthy. Well worth a visit. It’s a little bit hard to find because the entrance is so small.

    Great standard food with very simple and polite service. Pure vegan, yet healthy and tasty. Must try their custard dripping dessert and refreshing drink.

    Can not recommend this vegetarian restaurant enough. The food is simple, but delicious and the servings are huge. My husband and I shared shared a feast plate and it was plenty!

  • 5Lyndon W. 1 year ago
    Great value for money and a predominantly vegan menu. A while back they upgraded their menu and I have been really impressed with everything I have tried. Big plate with salads, curries/mains + drink + dessert for $12!!!

    A really nice place where we can enjoy plant base meals. I will return some time soon.

    Amazing vegetarian and vegan food that has become one of my favorites go to places. I love all that is in the photos taken (see photos attached to this review).The salads were extremely fresh along with the cooked dishes. I will always keep coming back

    One of the best place for vegetarians and vegans. The place has range of things to offer from snacks to dessert. The prices here are a bit cheaper compared to other vegan places in Melbourne. However, quality of food is not compromised. Tried vegan mixed berries cheese cake and it was really good.

    Outstanding value vegetarian meals

  • 5Nikhil K. 3 years ago
    Best place to have a good and satisfying vegetarian/ vegan meal. The prices are low and the quantity served is generous. The place serves Indian cuisine, some western dishes, desserts, and natural smoothies/juices. The place is not too plush but is popular amongst vegetarians. The place is clean and hygienic. The staff is polite and helpful.

  • 5Gabriel W. 1 year ago
    $11.95 for the vegan platter is an amazing price for the large servings and tasty food. The juice was pretty plain and sweet but other than that, the food was amazing. Would definitely recommend for any vegans/vegetarians.

  • 5Sally K. 2 years ago
    One of the best value meals in Melbourne. A range of curries, salads and some desserts. Koftas are great. Set up cafeteria style with your choices being plated for you. Customers choose their own seats. Pleasant view from windows overlooking Swanson street. Be aware that you need to climb a fairly steep staircase to the second floor.

  • 5Bianca N. 1 year ago
    Delicious vegetarian food with just enough spice and flavor. You cannot beat the price for the amount of food you get!! Super worth it. It’s located on the second floor. Also, I enjoyed the green apple drink.

    If you want honest, tasty, well-prepared, fresh, interesting and extremely affordable Indian vegetarian food in Melbourne, this is the place to go! We discovered it upstairs in Swanston Street and were blown away by the quality and value of the food offered. The samosas are to die for, as well as the vegetable croquettes. The vegetable curries are delicious. The salads are fresh and plentiful. The food portions are very generous. There is also a dessert option. They also provide a fresh lemon juice drink. Honesty, it you lived in Melbourne and wanted a healthy, and inexpensive daily option for your diet, this would be it! Amazing value, lovely people and a comfortable setting and ambience. Highly recommended.

    Great place in the heart of the city to unwind and relax to a very "Hare Krishna" type vibe. A little sanctuary in the city that provides wholesome vegetarian and vegan nourishment. The food is very fairly priced and very yummy. A popular place for lunch so be sure to get there early. Thanks to Gopals and the team for creating such a wonderful safe haven in the bustling city. Love it !

  • 4Darren W. 2 years ago
    Vegan and vegetarian buffet style restaurant located on Swanston just opposite the Town Hall. For between $10 and $13, you can get a large mixed plate of salads, curries, soup and dessert. Single dishes also available. While it is not fine dining, it is pretty tasty and friendly. They accept card. Gopals is a central location for a quick, cheap and wholesome meal.

    Very nice food reasonable prices

  • 3Sarah-Jane S. 1 year ago
    Used to be great, but quality has dropped. Girl behind the counter was nonchalant, slapped food on the plates and generally displayed zero love/enthusiasm. The rice tasted dry/stale, the lemon water was so sweet we couldn’t drink it, the soup was very average, none of the curries had much taste and the sprouts and green leaves in the salads tasted old. There was only one dessert option - date and semolina, and it was awful. No tea option. The guy clearing the plates started before we had finished eating. Saved by the location and price.

    Food is great, but the Cutlery is oily and the toilets are filthy!

    The food was not worth the money

  • 1Lou C. 1 year ago
    Dirty glasses and cutlery. Food looks good but glasses smell like they have been wiped over with dirty dish cloth. Spoons had food matter on them.
