The original IKU store on Glebe Pt Road

In 1985, we started our plant-based eatery from a tiny shop in Glebe...

… and we’ve nourished and healed our customers with simple macrobiotic meals ever since.

IKU has and always will be a celebration of eating well to live well. That’s why we focus on using ingredients from nature to make food that nurtures — without doing harm to you or the earth.

Simple macrobiotic meals that bring balance and vitality

Simple macrobiotic meals that bring balance and vitality

Food from nature, made to nurture.

Every IKU meal is 100% plant-based and vegan. Always.

What’s on the outside counts too.

All our packaging is reusable, recyclable or compostable and will be 100% compostable as soon as we can make it happen.

An ugly turnip never hurt anyone.

We source ingredients that are perfectly good to eat yet refused by grocery stores for how they look.

Respect the earth our food grows from.

We believe sustainable farming is the key to a healthier future and we support it wherever we can.

We say no way to food waste.

We compost or donate any excess food. It’s part of how we give back to the earth and the community.

we’re delivering to your door.

35 years on…

Thanks to our innovative vision, delicious dishes and the support of our community, we’ve stepped beyond the storefront to become an online delivery service that brings a whole new level of ease and accessibility to IKU.

What we eat impacts the planet. It’s that simple.

We all need to look after the earth that looks after us.

Lunch is a good place to start.
