It was nice
It is always a wonderful experience. We loved our meal.
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.
Excellent vegetarian food. Great variety to choose from.
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.
Our server Lauren was amazing!! It was our first time there and we were celebrating a birthday and she was so attentive and light hearted and the whole dinner was great. Everything was awesome, we will be returning.
Always excellent, healthy, vegan and vegetarian food. We order the Spicy Coconut Eggplant every time. Service is always great!
For non-vegetarians, we were pleasantly surprised and thought the food and service were great! Will be back for sure!
Only thing is I would have loved a glass of wine with my meal...
Best of Edmonton, and certainly the best vegan restaurant I've ever eaten in - anywhere in the world.
My girlfriend is Vegetarian and this lots of options to choice from. I found the food to be delicious Was very impressed.
Very nice ambience and delicious dishes!
Always amazing. We always make Padmanadi's a part of our trip to Edmonton. Never disappointed. Would definitely eat there if we lived anywhere close to Edmonton.
Great food and helpful service. We were there on a Thursday night for dinner and they were full so the meals did take longer than might otherwise have been expected. It was definitely worth the wait and we will definitely be back again.
Always great food at Padmanadi. Never had an average meal. Very good.
Just wish they had a wine list! Everything else is perfection, best food, friendly ambiance :) our families favourite, as we have 3 vegetarians, but the rest of us love it too!!
I've been here several times and I always leave happy with a full belly and plenty of leftovers. The food is delicious, staff is very accommodating and pleasant, and the price is very fair for what you receive. Padmanadi is easily one of my favourite restaurants in Edmonton. I love it here!
Lovely place with cool decor and great food
Always love coming here or even ordering out, always delicious and never disappointed
Delicious! Big fan of the ginger beef 😊 brought friends who haven't had vegan food before and even they enjoyed it!
Love that it is all vegetarian and vegan food; it is all excellent; very friendly fast service, and delicious vegan desserts. Food is fantastic and we never jave to wait too long for our food
We had an excellent meal and great conversation with our super-friendly server on a recent trip to Edmonton for the Grey Cup. Next time we are in town we will definitely be back, the brunch Benedict and the ginger beef were fantastic!
I have to visit here every time I come to Edmonton. Just amazing food for everybody (non vegans love it just as much!). The salty chickun strips are to die for. Amazing ginger beef. Also the strawberry cheesecake was the best I ever had. The very friendliest staff. They make you feel like family. I love you guys.
A great find for those of us with Vegans or Vegetarians in our family. Padmanadi is my number one choice when looking for a vegetarian rich menu. The atmosphere is comfy, casual and kid-friendly. The restaurant is surprising large and decorated with Eastern touches and warm colours. The menu is extremely diverse and has something for everyone (even 'fake' bacon). The servers are very personable and are quick to help their customers with unique requests. I would highly recommend this as a great place to eat a meal in Edmonton.
Best restaurant in Edmonton. Great staff. Very good for families. Chicken curry is amazing. Great vegan eats.
Had not been to Padmanadi in 5 or 6 years...the food is just as good now as it was back then..the rice pudding is excellent...will be back in the not too distant future.
Great food. First time ever. Try the Ginger Beef!!!
This was a fun experience. The variety of food was great! Very nutritious! Also, the meat-substitute dishes tasted really filling and wholesome. The service was quick and friendly!
The owner asked me, “have it tried all the new vegan restaurants in Edmonton yet?” “Yes, but we come back here because it’s the best.”
The ginger beef amazes me every time I visit. It's magic.
As usual the food was great and our server was knowledgeable and friendly.
Padmanadi is consistently amazing. It's fully vegetarian with plenty of vegan and gluten-free options. It's great for groups, birthdays, kids, intimate dinners, meeting friends, anything you like. It's delicious and the owners are wonderful beautiful people.
Always enjoy authenticity of dishes. Hard to imagine it is totally vegetarian. Servers are friendly but few at lunchtime, so it takes time to get served in the afternoon. Manager is good story-teller, especially about birthdays in Indonesia! Overall, enjoyed b'day lunch.
I'm not vegan and really loved the food, great stuff!
We are never disappointed when we dine here. Our grown daughters are vegen or vegetarian so it is a great place to go for family birthday and / or other celebrations.
Too fast bringing food, I mean starter and main too close
Enjoyable destination, but our last visit included what is hoped is a rare anomaly: one plate was delayed & when we inquired, were told it would just be a minute - however, it was considerably longer than that & all four at the table had finished their meals by the time it finally arrived.
Host and Server were great! Best to make reservations as it gets busy. Food tasted great, presentation very appealing and drinks were yummy!
I live in Vancouver and always go to Padmanadi when I’m here. My favourite restaurant ever! Thank you !!
