Open since 1972, this is the longest running vegetarian-turned vegan restaurant in Melbourne, and their experience shows in their well-loved and crafted dishes. Their hearty meals are Japanese and Indian focused, from curries to pies and dumplings. The Legendary Satay Shakahari is, well, legendary, as are the melt-in-your-mouth krub phom dumplings, filled with sweet corn, mushroom, pumpkin and walnuts. If you live on the other side of town, take note that they have a second restaurant, aptly named Shakahari Too located in South Melbourne.
