The name Shakahari, incidentally, is the Hindi word for "vegetarian". For more than forty years Shakahari has been one of this city's most innovative restaurants.
Eschewing compromise, Shakahari has maintained a firm commitment to the two fundamentals of its cuisine: It is completely vegetarian and it uses only fresh, natural ingredients. Menus are changed quarterly to take full advantage of seasonally available fruits and vegetables and there are no artificial ingredients or food colouring used.
The menu is exclusively vegetarian and designed to be balanced, nutritious as well as innovative. In keeping with its original Indian inspiration, the interior design of Shakahari's Carlton location uses basic village tones and simple furnishings.
What's on the menu at Shakahari vegetarian restaurant?As starters, avocado wedges and red capsicums rolled in thin eggplant slices then "tempura fried" in a rice batter, served with a jade green sesame coriander puree - Mushroom hemp dumplings, shredded green papaya tossed with various raw vegetables, roasted cashews, organic tempeh (traditional soy product originating from Indonesia) and fresh herbs - Vegan, non-dairy, gluten-free, no onion or garlic salad called "Shakahari".
