The dining experience in the Lygon Street area is not what it once was, but Shakahari does stand out. I eat here a few times a year when I stay in the area. It is usually busy so I book ahead. The service is good...More

We went to Shakahari for dinner. Our waiter was snobbish and inattentive and quite rude. The menu is challenging if you are not vegan. The food was very ordinary. Overall, a great disappointment.

We went at Shakari for lunch, looking for healthy food. The decoration is simple and it was a little bit cold inside. The waitress, a charming man, invite us to stay close the gas fire. We order three dishes. The food was very well presented...More

Our first family visit to a Vegetarian Restaurant. Total success. Food was awesome, only remembered to take photos of desserts.

Lovely atmosphere and food was fantastic. We each had something different, the quinoa croquettes, lasagne and curry were all very tasty and satisfying. The couscous and vegetables was the only meal that was lacking. Would go again

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
