We are Lentil as Anything.



We are not-for-profit vegan 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 you can help pay for a less fortunate person's meal.

Promoting Multiculturalism: Fostering an environment of inclusion

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

Spreading our core values: Training volunteers to help them find paid work in the future, working with the long-term unemployed and giving a new start to migrants and refugees.

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