Tilley's, Lyneham

If you live in Canberra you need no introduction to Tilley's. The food menu has improved somewhat for vegans in recent times. Pictured here is the vegan lentil burger from the lunch/dinner menu. This menu has all the vegan options marked on it. The staff are also open to customisation of individual dishes, and you can sometimes see extra vegan options on the specials board. Do check out the sweet potato chips. The vegan options on the breakfast menu are a bit thin, however.

SpudBar, Civic

At the SpudBar in Garema place you can get a potato (regular or sweet) with vegan toppings. There is a menu item called "Fresh Vegie", or you can customise the toppings. This is some of the best nutrition bang for the buck you can find in Civic, especially if you choose the sweet potato option.
At time of writing they were also offering a good value deal with a Dendy movie ticket included.

Chong Co, Kingston

Chong Co Thai restaurant mentions the 'Vegan' word in the menu which means that you can negotiate a vegan meal without too much fuss, and even get an entree. There are a handful of dishes to choose from. Our meals were nicely prepared, tasty and filling. Plus, our seat near the window was a good vantage point for looking out over the Kingston foreshore and watching people walk past. Since Chong Co is also located in Belconnen, Woden and Gungahlin, this offers easy options for vegan eating in the town centres.

The Chairman and Yip, Civic

The Chairman and Yip retaurant has been in Canberra for a longer time than many Canberrans have lived here. Prices are a little higher than the average restaurant. What do you get for your money then? In short: a fine dining atmosphere; impeccable service; staff who understand what vegan means and remember your vegan booking on arrival; a separate vegetarian menu -- all of which is vegan or can be made so; and excellent food, beautifully presented. The Chairman & Yip would be ideal for a special occasion or work function.
