This highly ornate restaurant, named after Kalachandji, an ancient Hindu deity once considered the "Supreme Personality of Godhead," is the oldest vegetarian eatery in Dallas. Situated in a center of worship founded by Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the chefs here practice what they claim is the Ayurvedic art of cooking for the body, mind and spirit. Walking into Kalachandji's is much like walking into a palace and temple complex on the Subcontinent. There are murals, richly carved wood and meticulously executed, gleaming tile, plush seating and a multi-tiered courtyard. It's no surprise that diners and patrons are often left in awe before and after time spent eating a wide array of India's vegetarian fare, as well as the lunch or dinner buffet. An experience here also leaves many wishing to duplicate the dishes at home. For that, the restaurant offers cooking classes.
