Great food! – I'm not a vegeterian, but I love Cosmic Cafe. The food is great. You definately have to be adventurious, but its totally worth it. I'm a Starbucks fan by far, but Cosmic Cafe's chai tea is WAY better. Try the pizza! Parking can be difficult and the sun can get you hard if you are there at a certain time, but this place is a definate must!

Awesome Find in Dallas – What an unexpected and wonderful experience in Dallas. I found it on the internet and at there 2 out of 4 days while visiting Dallas. Many choices of very well-prepared food. Friendly staff. Excellent "vibes" in both the restaurant and meditation space. I'll go back there everytime I come to Dallas.

Cosmic Cafe yoga is back! – Just an addition to an earlier positive review I posted - for the many people who miss the free yoga at the cosmic, they have a temporary home - cosmic's teachers are using the Chi yoga studio in fair park, with many of the same classes, hours and teachers. Chi is even honoring the "$5 donation" pricing. This is wonderful news for you cosmic yoga fans and I have to hand it to chi for letting our favorite teachers stay with the "free" pricing of cosmic cafe. Yoga in dallas really is a "community"! They are on fletcher street, near the main fair park entrance.

Cozy warm place, but currently closed. – This was one of my favorite places. I would order the Buddha's Delight. After a long drive from Plano after work through the cold weather, it was a warm, cozy environment in which I could warm up with the dahl and the green tea.

Upstairs were a lot of empty rooms where people had meetings and meditated. This is not so much an Indian restaurant, but an Indian-themed American restaurant. Which is all fine by me.

I went yesterday, and found it sectioned off by "fire do not cross" tape. I wonder when they will open again.

Definitely not for Desi (Unless you want to read OSHO books) – The first look at this place, we Felt it was WOW!! the whole place has a Indian setting to it. I liked the water fountain they had in front of the restaurant a small elephant with a umberalla on it and the water overflowing overit :) . That's it!! One look at the Menu we felt we are at the wrong place, though its of a Indian setting the whole menu is customized to American style. So if you are a Indian don't expect any spicy or tasty food here. the whole setting is really good, I liked the outdoor setting of this place and there are lots of OSHO books, so if you like to read them good place to visit. The Service is good and they are courteous no compalins there, Jus' that the food tastes horrible......

Nan pizzas are the best. Wine is cheap. Service is excellent. – Skip the bland hummus and head straight for the truly unique (at least to me) stuff on the menu. The waitstaff is nice and accomodating. The wine, though nothing to write home about, is only $4 per glass. The place just looks cool from the outside; and it is not surprisingly really cool on the inside too.

delicious with a great atmosphere – I have to say, I don't like Dallas. But, it is nice to feel like I'm not in Texas even if it is just for a meal! Great food, excellent feel. I enjoyed my experience and if I have to go back to Texas I will try to make it to the Cosmic Cafe everytime.

Great place – This is not your typical Dallas restaurant, but that is what makes it so awesome! The food is very good, I'm not Vegan, but I found Buddha's delight to be enjoyable. The chai is off the charts and I can't wait to go back for more.

Great vegetarian restaurant – The Cosmic Cafe is a nice vegetarian restaurant that is well suited to the Oak Lawn area. People there don't care who you are or where you're from, mainly because it's right next to Dallas' official gay area. The atmostphere is decorated with books and various unique middle-eastern artwork. The place has an open and free atmosphere that overflows with welcoming energy. The only drawback to the place is the location is a little small, and parking is virtually nonexistant. Frankly, if you can take a bus to get there by all means do.

People looking for a TGI Friday's plain white-bread atmosphere should look elsewhere, as they might get weirded out by the unique mediterranean dishes. They have great Indian dishes, including a falafel made from garbonzo beans that tastes a lot like beef. Great mango smoothies, and vegan desserts finish up an excellent meal.
