An Out of Body Experience! – Need I say more! We were told by the staff that the food is prepared with love and let me tell you...it certainly makes all the difference. I am convinced their food comes straight from the heavens. It not only tastes incredible every single time; it also looks fabulous. The soup is amazing. Make sure you put the tahini sauce on your veggies, it is hidden behind the soup crock. I eat the salad for pre-dessert it is so tasty. The tamarind tea is excellent and refreshing, the cinnamon/raisin bread is almost too much to handle...the halva is a party in your mouth! Sit in the atrium if the weather permits for the ultimate experience. Stop by the shop and take a look at the temple when you're done. Don't be afraid to ask questions, everyone is super nice and informative...not pushy.
Totally Cool Experience! – I was in Dallas for business and decided to give Kalchandji's a try, laughing to myself about the apparent need for so many Indian-themed restaurants include "Palace" or "Taj Mahal" or somesuch in their names. Little did I suspect Kalachandji's actually IS a palace!! The restaurant is attached to a Hari Krishna temple and community center - there's even a gift shop where you can purchase minor religious items! The food was great and super cheap. Best of all is the courtyard other reviewers have recommended. I enjoyed a lovely, inexpensive meal outside on a 50 degree Dallas night in January - thanks to the heaters Kalanchandji's has installed over its outdoor seating. A fountain and uplit live oak make the courtyard a wonderful surprise. An unusual and rewarding experience I did not expect to have during a mid-week stay in Dallas. Will definitely recommend to others!
An oasis for Vegetarians/Vegans – For a vegetarian and part time vegan ! this is an amazing place. First the ambience is awesome, especially on a sunny day when you can sit in the courtyard. Lunch and Dinner buffets, which are not very common. Extremely reasonable rates, great service. I like to meditate there for lil bit in the palace, and then have a refreshing meal.
The food has an Indian leaning.. but they have vegetarian selections from around the world (lasagna, enchiladas, tofu barbeque, tofu sticks (my favorite) etc.)... They have an excellent salad bar and I often times find myself craving just that.. Great friendly attitude and service.. I have heard they have a cooking class too... need to check it out..
Its a little off of the regular route, but once you get there you will not believe you are close to downtown Dallas.. ITs about a 10 minute drive from white rock lake (south on Garland, which becomes E Grand).
Refreshing, clean, friendly place, with GREAT food. Highly recommended.
A Fantastic Secret – Buffet style vegetarian dishes - food was excellent. Atmosphere is unique - beautiful courtyard. The incense is very heavy if that may adversely affect you.
Krishna devotees prepare a vegetarian Indian buffet in a courtyard adjacent to a temple. – In Short
Incense perfumes the entry to this sleepy oasis. Inside, a store sells Indian crafts and meditation manuals. Plants shade the courtyard, which is a mix of tiled roofs and stucco walls. Guests can dine at booths or iron tables to the sound of gurgling water and flutes. A limited selection of vegetarian Indian dishes and a salad bar are available--the pineapple chutney, available only by request, is a fruity blend of macerated pineapple and raisins.
