Amazing vegan food. We had both the specials. The curry of day which was a coconut Keralan curry. And the Nepalese dumplings on a broccoli gratin with roti. They were both amazing! Would definitely go back. I wish hey would open up in Auckland!

This is a collective review of the four visits we've made to Lotus Heart this year - on two occasions as a couple, then as a group of four and six, respectively. Yes, we keep bringing more people back with us! As vegetarians who eat...More

The Lotus-Heart is dedicated to conscious living and healthy eating, striving to create a global cuisine naturally. We use the freshest ingredients, locally grown and organic where possible, pure vegetable oils and vegetarian cheese, and avoid the use of microwaves unless specifically requested due to time constraints. We respect and honour the choices and requirements of our customers and in addition to our pure vegetarian fare, we offer options for vegan, gluten-free, raw food diets, and are more than happy to cater for specific allergy needs. Children are most welcome and we have a children's menu and high chairs available.
