Every time I go to Vegie Bar, I intend on ordering the amazing looking chocolate cake, sitting by the register. But then I get swayed by the pizza, the burritos, the burgers, the kimchi sliders... One day I will order dessert first and get that cake.

Delicious; good vibes; good bar; but don't order the raw Malaysian curry- not much flavour just rawness. The mostly greens is perfect!

I must admit, when my vegetarian friend dragged me to this restaurant for lunch I was a bit skeptical, but man... this place is great! They offer a big selection of different kinds of cuisines. I went for a wok dish where they replaced the meat with some sort of packed whole wheat. The texture was disturbingly similar and quite... More

We were looking for somewhere that caters for those of us who are gluten intolerant and the Vegie Bar was the place! Great options on the menu with friendly attentive staff, we were very happy with the dining experience and when in Melbourne again we will definitely go back. Prices for meals and beverages were reasonable, service of the meals... More

There is definitely something about 'vegan' restaurants where the staff are pretentious and rude. Service was very average, staff could try and smile and act like they like their jobs. One of the girls seemed pleasant- must be new and doesn't understand that she is supposed to walk around scowling. I'm glad that the food (well, the berry drink and... More

Great atmosphere and very busy. The only confusion we had was where exactly we were supposed to pay. The outside of the building is deceptive. Inside it's very large, colourful and enjoyable to dine with good company. The meals were delicious, surprising new additions to the regular meals you find in other restaurants and all well thought out. Staff were... More

First the positives about this place, trendy, lively and buzzing. Accepting there is no booking system, our wait in the back bar was far quicker than they originally explained it would be, so that was great. We had already seen a menu so knew what we wanted once we were shown to our seat and our order was taken relatively... More

Love the sweet selection here, especially the cheesecakes. Not a big fan of the savoury selection but love their Mexican burrito and raw Malaysian Curry. The portion, however, is huge!

I like the food here but the service could certainly do better. Pushing people to the bar whilst they wait (everytime I have been there, I was asked to wait in the bar) almost sounds like a strategy to increase bar revenue rather than making people comfortable whilst they wait. The wait of 30-45 minutes cover during weekend nights is... More

Take your time to be in the line at least 25 mins on Saturdays, you can try the Ibisco Tea and the falafel
