The Story of Om Vegetarian Restaurant


Om Vegetarian is a family owned and run chain of restaurants in Melbourne. Our goal is to share healthy, affordable dining options to all our patrons and promote the benefits of a Vegetarian lifestyle.

Our Melbourne restaurants CBD were established by Suraj Kumar and Meenakshi Sharma, a husband and wife team, who reflected upon the rising costs of living within Melbourne, especially within the city. Their family members, Samrat Sharma, Ravneet Sharma, Swati Sharma and Navneel Sharma also support the business full-time.

Flinders Station Elizabeth St

With this in mind, the couple set off to establish an Indian Melbourne restaurant accessible for all students, families and office workers. With divine blessings and hard work, they established their first restaurant tucked away on level 1, 28 Elizabeth Street, in the heart of the city.

The inspiring response received from customers and staff alike had been tremendous, and the restaurant was published as an up and comer in many cheap eat guides as the best value meal offered in all of Melbourne!

With this great response, in May 2012, the Om Vegetarian team set up it's second venue on the corner of Swanston and Collins Street. This restaurant located on the ground floor of Wales arcade across from City Square. The Wales Arcade Om Vegetarian has also become a lunch and dinner hotspot for locals and tourists alike.


In June 2014, Om Vegetarian opened in 113 Swanston Street, within the Capitol Arcade. This restaurant specialises in special a la carte cuisine including the punjabi favourite - Makki Roti and Saag.

Based on excellent reviews from travellers, Tripadvisor issued Om vegetarian with a Certificate of Excellence. 


Om Vegetarian's Goal is to provide people with wholesome, delicious and affordable Melbourne dining, and to promote the benefits of being Vegetarian and living in a sustainable environment.

Moreover, we prove to so many people how delicious vegetarian food can be!
