We are Lentil as Anything.



At our core are our not-for-profit vegetarian restaurants, where guests contribute what they feel their meal and experience is worth, according to their own financial ability.

Lentil as Anything was established in 2000 and continues to support our community everyday by;

Caring for people: Providing a wholesome and nutritious meal where money is not a concern.

Promoting Multiculturalism: Fostering an environment of inclusion

Reforming Society: Acting on the structures of society to restore justice.

Extending and spreading it’s ethos and values: Hiring volunteers, the long-term unemployed and the marginalised.

Encouraging: Young people to be active citizens and get involved in community based initiatives

What do we do?


Lentil’s main function is to provide food without borders - without borders of cash value, race or socioeconomic status.


We also seek to remove the borders in our community - to bring people together over plates of food to share their stories with each other. The contributions we receive from everyone who has been to our restaurants are a testament to the generosity of the community.
