Australians Vote with Their Tongues

I love food awards:

Australia's LifeStyle FOOD Channel has conducted a survey (based on a public voting system) on Australia's most popular restaurants.

Of the top 15 vegetarian restaurants in Australia, four are Hare Krishna restaurants: Govinda's in Darlinghurst NSW, The Cardamom Pod in Byron Bay NSW, Gaura Nitai's in Cairns QLD, and Gopal's in Melbourne, Victoria.

Congratulations! And thanks to the Australian public for letting us know what you like.
