Good vegetarian options for take-out

We have been ordering take-out from this vegan restaurant around one to two times a month for for over six years. The owners are cordial, and the turn-around is fast. We love the veggie and tofu dishes and also have enjoyed some of the other dishes such as the green beans, eggplant and tofu and... read more

Great Lunch restaurant. Under $10. Almost full. Fast service. Nice humble servers. Vegan and vegetarian choices only. I had the 'ol vegetarian curry chicken, yellow curry. I was very good as expected. Can't wait to go back and try some more!

This might be my new favorite restaurant in MV! Great service, full veggie menu, and reasonable prices. Very tasty stuff in a low-key location near downtown. Very fresh food, with just enough spice to keep it interesting. I'll be back for sure!!

So I came here for lunch based on all the reviews. What a big mistake! First we ordered from the weekend menu which was $9.95 for an entree, soup, and rice. We got 2 dishes. Eggplant and string beans. Soup was a pathetic bunch of frozen veggies in a bland broth. Brown rice came in a tiny bowl meant for... More

Our family has loved Garden Fresh for years. This evening, as we were enjoying our dinner, my daughter asked "Mom...why haven't you ever reviewed Garden Fresh?" "I haven't reviewed Garden Fresh?" I replied. "Seriously?" "Yep! I was reading through your reviews the other day, and you've never reviewed it!" Oops! I couldn't believe I'd never written a review of this... More

Ok...they have awards for the last 6 years...they have been around for 20...this should be enough... Not a fancy place...but the food makes up for it! Yum! The beef with broccoli is great! Broccoli is al dente and the shiitake mushroom " beef" has a great texture and flavor. It was crisp on the outside. The Kung Pao chicken is... More

Great staff, delicious vegetarian food in a funky casual setting. No alcohol served at this location, but wine and beer are served at the Palo Alto Garden Fresh.

I thought this vegan Chinese restaurant had really good food, it was nice to find a place that can prepare tasty and creative vegan dishes. I had the spring rolls, the veggie moo shoo, hot and sour soup and the Singapore style rice noodles. Everything was good but the moo shoo was quite plain I wouldn't order that again. We... More

I felt that the food was quite tasteless. In their bid to create vegetarian fish, etc., I think they totally went awry. Also, they hashed up the straight forward vegetarian stuff (like wantons and dumplings being undercooked, soup tasting horrible, etc). I had the spinach wonton soup, the spinach tasted stale. All in all, I wouldnt touch this place with... More
