Naked Lentil

Show Summary

Naked Lentil chronicles the journey of Sri-Lankan migrant Shanaka Fernando, who dropped out of law school to open 'Lentil As Anything', a restaurant in Melbourne where there are no prices, cash registers, or rules. The pay-as-you-feel concept provides fresh, healthy vegetarian meals and asks for a voluntary donation in return. With several operations now running in different cities, they are staffed by migrants from around the world who are dependent on Fernando's organisation for jobs, training, accommodation, driving lessons and community support. However, with no prices or demand for payment the business is in serious debt - will it survive?
