KIND is a mostly plant-based eatery.
Morningside used to be an urban concrete jungle. It was primarily an industrial area, making it a very grey place to be. Literally. A place of concrete and iron and a place with little social connection or belonging. While Morningside has come a long way in the last few years, we would love to see it become even more green.

KIND is the newest neighbourhood venture which aims to make the neighbourhood a better place to live, work and socialise. KIND aims to do its bit to make sure that this growing community is a healthy one,in every sense of the word. We want to see grey turn to green.

While KIND has a number of owners, the majority of KIND is owned by the Crave Collective (KIND is Crave’s little sister). The Crave Collective exist to make Morningside a better place to live and part of that is to make the neighbourhood greener and healthier. KIND exists to move this forward. This social impact is the reason KIND exists.

Only thing I wasn’t happy about is that it was suggested we’d need 3-4 dishes for 2 people. We ordered 3 and had plenty leftover so I’d be a bit careful about that. Would have liked an option of some more entré sized dishes.

Food was served in too small bowls and not seasoned - wasn’t tasty. Also the room was SO hot. Service was fine but if it was slightly more attentive we probably would have ordered another round of drinks. I’m not sure I’ll come back which is disappointing bc I’m plant based and wanted to love it.

Beautiful spot, I came back for brunch on Sunday!

Although it seemed like quite a lot of food on the plate I must admit I was super hungry again within 2 hours -- maybe that's just my inexperience with vegan food though.

Arrived to find two tables set up for us, one outside, as booked, and one inside as the evening had turned cool. The thoughtful service continued throughout and the food was delicious. Looking forward to going back.

It was just a shame our waiter was terrible and very rude. Took plates away when we were still eating and wasn't very friendly. We felt as though we were being rushed to leave. There were only 3 other diners there that night also, so we cannot say it was due to it being busy. We ordered the Jackfruit Tostadas, Broccolini and the Zucchini Spaghetti & Meatless balls. The Jackfruit was by far my favourite it was delicious! The Zucchini Spaghetti & Meatless ball didn't have any meatless meat balls... Just zucchini and eggplant in a tomato sauce, which was a bit of a letdown. Although I would not go back, I hope my experience was a once off, as I have spoken to others who have enjoyed their experiences at Kind. Love the idea of the restaurant though.

Food was just right for the quiet end of a hot summer day. Portions were big enough to be satisfying but not so large that you felt they were going to beat you. Excellent taste combinations and just an all round healthy vibe.

There was 10 of us and between us all we almost tried the entire evening menu. All of the meals were delicious. The jackfruit and the ripped focacia are a must. All meals were presented beautifully and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I look forward to returning and to trying the day time menu. Thank you for an awesome evening!

With one Vegan person it is hard to find places where we can all enjoy the food. Beautifully presented dishes that were incredibly delicious. Great variety of food and a really nice way to share all the plates so you get a full experience of everything!!! Amazing neighborhood eatery!!!! Thank you Kind!!!

We had the jackfruit tostadas which were yummy & they were happy to put the Aoli on the side for one of us. The cauliflower & buffalo mozzarella were also super tasty & full of flavour. Such a convenient spot for those in Morningside/Sandringham or in between! Parking is not always easy but it’s a short 2 minute walk if you park in one of the side streets. I will definitely be back!
