Beautiful food, friendly man, great value. Very filling meal for less than $15. Had the mango lassi, Dahl, koftan balls, spinach & paneer samosa and all of it was fantastic.

I love the Hare Krishna values of fresh, clean and good tasting food served with love. This place is busy most evenings and a little unusual so be pleasant. The explanation of meals on offer are not like other Hare cafes, its a bit complicated. Excellent food, great service with that spiritual giving style. Try the Samosa, brilliant, or the... More

I'm a local of the area for 20+ years and used to love going here until my last visit was ruined by an extremely rude man behind the counter! I was incredibly shocked at his customer service and abuse toward myself for what I still can't understand for. Very disappointing

Went there for dinner with my fussy food eating daughter. She had the kofte with salad whilst I had the vegetarian lasagne - both were great! Huge portions and wonderful flavours. Washed mine down with apple and ginger juice. The place is quite hard to find down a back alley - but well worth looking for....

Popped in for an evening meal whilst staying in Harrogate. Had a lovely meal. The food was tasty and nicely cooked. The service was excellent and the place was very busy for a Monday, which says a lot about a restaurant! Recommended!

We went here twice and loved it. My partner wasn't even a vegetarian and it was still one of his favourite places in byron! I highly recommend. There desserts are also really good. Bring cash because they don't take card.
