A great selection of food for vegans and vegetarians, the portions are really large - in fact we were spoilt for choice :) We were all very happy with the food, it all tasted nice, even my non vegetarian friend enjoyed his burger.

The greek scrambled tofu with fried potatoes ($14.50) and the 3 Dog morning burrito with chips on the side (around $11) were huge portions and tasty but had us running to the bathroom and a queezy stomach for hours. Can't come back.

When I walked into Dharma’s and saw other food coming out of the kitchen I thought I had come to the right place. So maybe I just ordered the wrong thing: the veggie burrito. It was huge but really disappointing. A big mess of refried...More
