We walked into this as the first place we came to that had free space after a conference at ULB. To be honest it looked a bit run down , but we decided to stay and give it a go. The food was delicious, staff friendly. I am not a vegetarian - and in fact the restaurant serves seafood dishes.... More

Lovely location, the atmosphere is very nice, very well decorated place and very charming and cozzy. Smiling and friendly staff, we felt at home. The menu is not big, you have the choice between only a few meals but the quality of the food is good, tasty and well prepared.

This restaurant not only offers delicious and flavourful vegetarian cuisine but it also has a cozy, unique yet unpretentious ambience. These two factors alone are assurance that I'll happily go back there for either lunch or dinner.

We have eaten here several times over the years and have always been satisfied. Tonight, however, was really disappointing. Slow service and overpriced mediocre food. It used to be heaving on a Saturday night but was not nearly full this time. Maybe others have had the same experience as us.

I was here with friends from Brussels for dinner, and although none of us vegetarian, we loved what we ordered. I had the Aztec salad, and it was definitely the tastiest salad I've ever had. I'd go back just for that. My friends had soup of the day and cod and a curry, and loved it. My lavender creme brulee... More

One has to know where it is or one could never find it. It's next door to the fantastic Bio Shop, up a rather shabby staircase. The door opens : you enter a lovely, peaceful haven. Best of all if Luis the owner welcomes you. The food is really delicious and the deserts are mouth watering. All is simple, gentle,... More

Now here's an artist and noble man known to many artists simply as LUIS. A man with a voice and a heart he leads the delicate team of fine cuisiniers in both beautiful lunches at absolutely acceptable prices and inventive diners! The ambiance is that of ART on the wall, for the ear and the stomach! Just make sure you... More

shanti promises to be an excellent veggie option, since it is housed on top of a bio food store. also the beautiful, parisian-esque atmosphere of the half-dark restaurant, with dark wood and linen napkins, overlooking the roofs of brussels is titillating. unfortunately, the food is not. if anything, this is veggie old-school, serving 'normal' carb-veggies-meat with simply a met substitute....

Shanti has been around a long time, more than thirty years, and I have come there every so often. Only two years ago I had a lovely dinner there. This evening though it was really terrible. I ordered "poisson grille" with vegetables. The fish had a mushy, half-rotten taste, and I suspected right away it was panga, that cheapest of... More
