Lentil As Anything Inc. is a group of pay as you feel, not for profit vegetarian and vegan Australian restaurants founded by Shanaka Fernando. Restaurants are located in Melbourne and Sydney and operate on a similar model to pay what you can. Lentil is named after the Australian new wave band Mental As Anything.
The values that Lentil As Anything stands for are those deeply rooted in a healthy human community. These values are now cemented into the social fabric of Melbourne and Sydney with four restaurants in St. Kilda, Abbotsford and Thornbury in Melbourne, and Newtown in Sydney. The Pay-As-You-Feel movement created by Lentil As Anything has influenced numerous organisations and communities that subscribe to a similar ethos in Asia, Europe and the Americas.
