Veggies!

This is one of the only places for healthy chinese food. The tofu is really amazing; get the one that is shaped like a little rose. The food is somewhat salty (the faux meat) bu the veggies are so fresh!

I always enjoy meeting with friends here and sharing several plates together. Glad we have a quality vegetarian restaurant here. Ambiance is not as funky as the rest of university ave, but food and service is good, and the place has an intimate chill vibe. I will be coming back!

My (vegetarian) sister and I decided to try this place out (as our dad is vegan and we may want to bring him here). We ordered the Mongolian veggie chicken, curry tofu, vegetable potstickers, veggie chicken chow mein, and crispy wan tuns. We were pleasantly surprised at the selection and flavor of the dishes we ordered. I think it's great... More

This is an outstanding restaurant! I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys vegan or vegetarian food. Super-outstanding service, exceptionally good food, and very reasonable prices for Palo Alto. For busy times, set aside a couple minutes to find nearby parking. Absolutely five stars!!!! A++++.

My son who is vegan brought me here while I was visiting. The restaurant is small with a lot going on. We were seated without a wait but by the time we left there was a line out the door. The owner is attentive and always moving. I had a fantastic curry dish. The soy chicken texture is a little... More

Been in this place 3 times already, and so far, we were still enjoying every dish that we were trying out. Basil tempura, Vegan noodle soup, Sesame Soy chicken, Vegan Fish teriyaki, Wonton with peanut sauce...they were all so delicious! And I'm not even a vegetarian or vegan, but still find the dishes very interesting. The service, definitely, friendly and... More

The food is always "garden fresh" and the restaurant has a cozy, neighborhood vibe. I highly recommend trying the Basil Tempura, this is by far the best thing that I have had on their menu and this dish alone warrants giving the restaurant a try. I am not normally a vegan kind of guy but this place makes me forget... More

This Kung Pao Veggie chicken was excellent. Bean curd with ginger. Very appetizing looking as well. Everything fresh! YUM! The desserts were great! Black China Bakery vegan chocolate cake and the Vegan Carrot cake were both excellent. Small restaurant and a couple outside street view tables. The Chinese manager/owner? was very sweet and accomodating. Will definitely go back. They had... More

My friend/partner took me here, as he and his family, are vegetarians, and I should say the food was really fresh, and had the feel of a meat dish. The service is very good, with the owner supervising, and taking orders directly. A must visit if you are in the Palo Alto area.
