delicious and varied vegetarian food

The only problem with going here was figuring out which of the many appealing dishes to get. There is everything from pasta to burgers to curries and Asian noodles and Mexican. Portions were on the large side and the flavors and dressings were all very tasty.

I had the pleasure of eating dinner at Dharma's with 4 friends. I had the curry (mild), others had a mushroom dish, stroganoff, lasagna, and something mexican. All dishes are vegetarian. They were excellent - tasty, well seasoned and fresh. Many came with side salads. We couldn't eat it all and so had leftovers for our next meal. I will... More

Dined here on a visit with my vegan niece who is a UCSC student close by. Food was so delicious and freshly prepared. Great menu options. Even my meat and potato spouse enjoyed his meal. Must visit my niece more often before she graduates so that I can dine here again.

Dharma's has been in town a long time - and has always remained dependable and efficient. There are creative nightly specials - and great standbys such as the American Sauté - featuring delicious tahini sauce, vegetables, and tofu - a smaller portion can be ordered which I personally find a great convenience. I do wish they would offer a smaller... More

Dharma's is a nice restaurant to visit -- I took my visiting-from-out-of-town vegetarian friend there Saturday night and she was very happy with her meal. We both ordered the Bo Thai plate, hers with brown rice and mine with rice noodles. Lots of veggies and tofu in a mildly spicy peanut sauce. The restaurant has a counter rather than table... More

If you are into healthy eating, this is the place! I loved the tempeh burgers and so much else on the menu. This isn't a restaurant where you will be served, but it doesn't matter, as the same table configuration makes this a real restaurant, though you order at a 'window' and they call your name when the meal is...

This vegetarian restaurant has it all: Vegan, gluten free, and dairy free available. With lots of choices, this vegetarian restaurant has something for everyone--from home made vege burgers to pizza to Thai and Indian vegetarian dishes. It's a great place!

Dharma's has an extensive menu, especially many choices for vegetarians and healthy-minded diners! The portions are ridiculously large! Already planning a second visit.
