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.

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.

I was pleasantly impressed with the quality of service the excellent food and the atmosphere of this restaurant. The waitress was pleasant, non-threatening, not pressuring, and engaging.

We would very much like to come back for “seconds”.

Thank you Padmanadi for putting so much soul into your offerings and service. You will remain in our memories for future engagements and get togethers.

PS: bring a large group when you visit this restaurant, and take photos of the event, it would be a blast.

Best Regards,


Rob

This was our 1st time at Padmanadi's - delightful! Lunch menu started with a Sweet Potato Coconut Soup- loved it. We ordered Ginger Beef and Rendang Beef - would never guess it was not beef. Main dish comes with 2 spring rolls, rice and chrysanthemum tea - all at a very reasonable price. The staff/servers were super friendly and engaging. Would definitely come again - thank you!

Great food, a bit on the loud side but not really the fault of Padmanadi. Hot and sour soup was a bit disappointing, not as authentic as we had hoped even if it was tasty(more sweet and spicy..) but the eggplant, rendang, curry and fried rice vermecelli were excellent. A bit pricey, but I would definitely come back.

My first time experiencing Padmanadi was through skip the dishes. I ordered the curry chicken and the mushroom dish. It was the best chicken I ave ever had; Turns out it wasn't chicken.

Second time, was date night. We ordered the sampler meat plate, ginger beef and coconut rice. The price for the quality of food is also unbelievably good. My date was also suspicious of how non-meat meat can be the best ginger beef ever had.

We are certain it's meat. :) Jk! My new favorite pre-event place.

The food was very good, I would not have known that there wasn't any meat or seafood. This place was recommended to us by a family member. The place was packed with line ups out the door. The owner was very friendly, came by our table to see how everything was. We are not vegetarians, but the food is good enough that I would consider being a vegetarian. We ordered the corn chowder soup, satay, green beans, seafood nest, chicken curry, coconut rice, salt and pepper tofu, as well as the mango cheesecake and chocolate lava cake.

We were very happy. Plenty of options and great taste.
My husband has a severe dairy allergy. There is no dairy in anything even the desserts.
You don’t have to ask which dishes have dairy.
Vegan or vegetarian or no vegan, no vegetarian it was great and we will definitely be returning to try more items in the menu.

Vegan, healthy, fresh dishes at reasonable prices with uncommon good tastes. What more could you ask?
Brunch tastes like the best omelets and Benedicts you ever had, but the protein is from soy, even the eggs, bacon, and ham. Servings are large, service is fast and efficient. Most surveys say this is the top place in town, and my family agrees. For supper, try the curries, the incredibly tasty veggie ginger beef, the fantastic soy "fish", the chicken-like legs and breasts, the rich seaweed and tofu soups.
Desserts look familiar but the rice pudding, mangos, and even the brownies are animal-free and taste-wealthy. We have been almost ten times and no one ever was disappointed or had a tummy ache or was hungry afterward. We try to go once every week or two. The veggies are fresh every day, the spices say "Indonesia" not New Orleans, and then there's chrysanthemum tea. Real tea and coffee are available, too. What a place. A huge Buddha smiles on you and the seats are heavy wood with kind padding. Heaven downtown.

Padmanadi is by far my favourite restaurant in Edmonton. I love that I can eat foods I used to enjoy as a omnivore but the vegetarian version! It’s so good that we can take our meat eating family and friends and everyone is happy.
