Great vegetarian food to a really great price!

If you are planning to visit Palo Alto or are on your way to San Francisco from South then you have to stop here. All the classic Chinese dishes but made vegan. At lunch all the dishes are 8:95 inkl tax.

The meals are fresh and delicious. I have enjoyed three different dishes and this place is consistently very good. Highly recommended.

This place serves "pork" and "chicken" that's actually made of tofu. I was skeptical about this at first - this place having been recommended heartily by a friend - but I was pleasantly surprised with the dish I ordered (a medium spicy "chicken" dish). I found the dish quite tasty. I thought this to be a brilliant idea - when... More

and fake meat, lots of fake meat. They have a wide variety of classic Chinese restaurant favorites. I had the moo shi dinner and would never have known I was not eating the standard pork version. It was very tasty, the pancakes fresh off the grill and the plum sauce sweet and thick. I loved this place. Even the carnivore... More

This is Chinese food but it is all vegetarian. They have tofu duck. I like the quality of the food and the prices are reasonable. Not high end, but a satisfying meal for a weeknight.

I cant believe how good it is. And all vegan too! I have gone there a few times now. I go with a nice fried who doesn't know it's vegan and he loves it just like its a non-vegan place.

Garden Fresh is the best Chinese food restaurant on the Peninsula, bar none. it also happens to be vegan. Lots of carnivores resist trying a vegan restaurant, because they think the mean will feel unfullfilling. That's not the case at Garden Fresh. The chef goes to elaborate details to make the vegan food look like meat. There are fake bones... More

We're familiar with this place and we love a couple of dishes. Basil Tempura is top notch and we often order it with Black Pepper "chicken" and/or Singapore noodles. Owners are super nice and real.

Our son recommended this place but we are not vegetarians so we were skeptical. Mushrooms made to taste like duck? Really? We were both blown away at the great taste of all the dishes. You must order the scallion pancakes, the Mongolian Chicken and the veggie duck. My husband is a real beefaholic and raved about the Singapore style rice... More

As a vegetarian, it's rare that I have so many choices when I go to a restaurant. I wanted to try everything! I finally decided upon the sweet and sour soy "pork". I was not disappointed; it was delicious! I was with three other diners, none of whom are vegetarian, and they all loved their meals as well. The tofu... More
