I love the food there, every dish has its specialty. My favorite is the curry chicken. The staff takes really good care of you. I always look forward to a new experience at Padmanadi.

Hands down our favourite place to eat. Even when the store is packed service is still perfect, food is quick and always delicious. Very well run.

I recommend padmanadis to everyone! A non-pretentious vegan place is hard to find but padmanadis crushes it constantly. It’s easily my favourite restaurant and the service is always so friendly and knowledgeable about the food.

As always, excellent food quality and many choices. The place is always packed when we go, so it’s quite noisy for my taste. If you’re ok with that, you won’t regret a visit to this Restaurant!

One of my favourite places to eat in Edmonton and I’m not even a vegetarian! Food is always great as is the service. We try to go at least once a month, even if that means ordering in from them when we’re unable to make it down to them. We’ve been going for years and the quality has never diminished. Highly recommended to anyone curious about them!

i'm not vegan/vegetarian and absolutely LOVE Padmanadi's. My friend who introduced me to Padmanadi's lives in Claresholm. She will travel up for the weekend just to visit and eat at the restaurant. Best place in town in my opinion!

Service was amazing, food was incredible, can't wait to come back! Everything was plant-based, so as a vegan I appreciated that. Went to Padmanadi on a date with my omni boyfriend and we were both equally impressed- it's SO GOOD.

Lauren served us and sorted us out with recommendations - she was fantastic. We had the curry and the ginger beef with coconut rice, and were so full we took the panacotta and cheesecake away with us. Everything was seriously delicious and the atmosophere was great. I love all the pictures they have on the walls and they have big tables to accommodate large groups and tables for two too. It's a lovely space - go and try Padmanadi!

We love Padmanadi. We have been going for 15+ years.
When guests each order their own meal to eat (rather than sharing dishes) it would be much better for ALL meals to be served at the same time.

Two guests were served out of our party and politely waited for the others to be served but they finally said go ahead and eat. Then the other two waited another 15 minutes, although a bowl of one's rice was delivered ahead of his meal, which went cold before his meal was served. We had specifically told the server we were each ordering our own meals. This is kitchen responsibility for timing.

The wait staff were friendly, helpful and well informed. Service was prompt and friendly without being intrusive. Meals were served hot and came just a few minutes after we ordered. Restaurant was clean. One concern we had was that it was very loud. You called this energetic above; it would be more accurate to say frenetic. The wide open atmosphere contributes to this and we consider it to be unfortunate. Although we are likely to return because of the excellent food and service, the ratings would have been better if it were not so loud.

We love Padmanadi and often celebrate special occasions here. Amazing 100% vegan food - our favourites are the deep fried mock shrimp and the mock ginger beef. The noodle dishes are also favourites of ours. Their cupcakes are awesome too!

When my boyfriend ask me if it's ok for me if he was a vegetarian. I laughed...as an average Filipino girl living in a city he thought that I loved my vegetables so much..in fact when i was growing up i always had my veggies grew in our backyard. He was surprised that our first date night here way back 3 years ago was awesome. And till then we dine every 2 months here to enjoy the food we loved...especially the potatoes in chicken curry...my boyfriend is like the boy in the candy store and you should see his face enjoying them over and over. And for me I'm still studying how to get this chicken curry master in my taste so that I can make it on my own and surprise him. Yet we will never stop dining here. The Camaraderie of this restaurant is very welcoming and friendly. We loved it here.
