Whats our Story?

Welcome to Mantra lounge - Vegan Restaurant Melbourne

One of Australia’s best and lifestyle vegan restaurant in Melbourne that provides you with the most authentic and tasty food delicacies that are 100% vegan. We are home of the modern day vegan cuisine where we keep in the mind our guests’ tastes and expectations and so our menu is considerately tailored just according to it. Our motto simply lies in providing a memorable experience to our guests while they enjoy their outing with flawless service and great food.

Since our opening, we have tried to maintain the best and quality standards in vegan food with regularly changing our menu to keep it more exciting and relishing. We believe that good food nourishes the mind, body, spirit as well as the planet and so guarantee that our food is thoroughly enjoyed by our customers and at the same time it does not cost them a fortune.

We have a team of talented chefs and professional and charismatic managers for the vegan restaurant who help us achieve this feat with their utmost dedication and expertise in their respective fields. Without them it would not have been possible to do what we are doing today. Our team puts in their best efforts to achieve success both internally and externally.

Our menu is prepared under strict supervisions with the most ethical and sustainable practices and includes daily food blessing so that they become tempting and scrumptious to our customers. The concept of “ahimsa” - a Sanskrit word meaning “compassion” and “to not injure” is inculcated in all our dishes and so all that we serve is 100% vegan. The menu is mostly unique and we dish out finest delicacies that are rarely prepared at home. This means that our chefs continually work on creating delicious food that excite the senses and make our guests wanting for more. In addition, we use biodegradable takeaway cutlery, packaging and source local products whenever possible to reduce carbon footprint and a healthier environment.

Mantra lounge is one of the finest and best vegan restaurants in Melbourne which caters to customers at any time and so they can pop in day in and day out. Moreover, whether it is birthday, anniversary, or any other celebration or event, our menu offers food for each occasion, whatever your appetite. Have a chat with your friends over a cup of coffee or relish some of our popular in-house creations, such as our “sausage” roll and lasagna.

Whatever the occasion, Mantra lounge welcomes its esteemed guests to relax at our interiors and enjoy some great authentic food while indulging yourself or with friends. We regularly run a Kirtan Meditation Night that will have you singing, dancing, smiling and afterwards enjoying a nourishing vegan meal.

We strive to maintain our reputation to the utmost satisfaction and delight of our guests. Hence, our customers have put forth a level of trust on us and so we try to exceed their expectations each day by innovating our methodologies. This has been our dictum since years.

Why Vegan Food…?

Our menu is 100% vegan, with a focus on flavour and sustainability. Veganism is central to the concept on which Mantra Lounge was founded. Our food is a celebration of bold flavours and fresh produce, with dishes from around the world. Our expert chefs have created traditional dishes transformed by our uniquely vegan spin, from a creamy lasagna to our chocolate and vanilla “Pleasecake" (like a cheesecake, minus the cheese). Not only will our menu get your taste buds dancing, our dishes perfectly complement a clean, healthy diet.
