Just 4 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, it’s 11 historic buildings, gardens are spread over 6.8 hectares in a sweeping bend in the Yarra River. Lentil as Anything at Abbotsford is the largest among 3 restaurants at the Abbotsford Convent.
More than 900 diverse members in the community come to Lentil as Anything Abbotsford every day to share a meal. There are 140 places at our tables, inside and out, so there is room for everyone.
Opened in 2005 in the former dining hall of the nuns, Lentil as Anything Abbotsford came to build bridges across disparate community groups.
Boat people and Abbotsford’s disciples of dhal smile across restored wood-work benches to the music of a one man celtic reggae band.
