I have been here a few times and it has good alternative vegetarian choices and the dishes are always tasty. it is tucked in a corner off an alley so hard to find. nice outdoor patio. the vibe is a bit "hippyish" in it looks, feel and with the staff.

We eat meat but also love a good veggie restaurant and were very happy to find this in the place we were holidaying in. It is run by a couple (I think the lady is Danish and the husband is from Blackpool). Great ambiance and friendly service. We are from the North of England and the husband owner was incredibly...

I was hungry and wanted something healthy to eat. I was told by a good friend Green Temple a good choice for vegetarians. I ordered a veggie burger to go with side veggies and when I say it was tasty and not dry like eating wood. Very good will definitely go back for more options on the menu. Pricing fair... More

This came up on my Vegat app when looking for someplace new to try and near/on the beach. Redondo was on our list of places to see and was not very far from the hotel. Actually drive straight there from Griffith Observatory and traffic was fine! I had the tofu bowl, $8.50 portion (Organic brown rice, organic black or pinto... More

If you are a vegan or a vegetarian this is the place for you! So many choices and the food was really yummy. I need to return many times just so I can try everything on the menu. The service was friendly and plenty attentive. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wasn't... More

On the recommendation of a local, we sought out this delightful little spot located in the Riviera Village area of Redondo Beach. Parking can be a challenge during peak hours, but it's worth circling a couple of times. We walked in and were greeted by a friendly, soft-spoken Aussie who was both gracious and attentive, despite being busy during the... More

This is an OK restaurant...nice atmosphere and a good vegetarian menu.... but I ate there with my family last week... AND THEY KICKED US OUT AT 8:59 PM. No warning! The waitress came over at 8:58 (while we were finishing our entrees) and said "if you want dessert, you'll have to take it to go...we are closing at 9". Outrageous,... More

I love this place... I live nearby, so I probably go there once a month, but I especially like to take out-of-town visitors here because it is so unique. It is a vegetarian/vegan(?) place and they don't serve alcohol, so keep that in mind when you decide whom to take. But again, the food is out of this world delicious... More

Our favorite restaurant in Redondo Beach. The decor and atmosphere are enchanting, the food healthy and delicious, the people friendly and wonderful. We go there regularly. Our kids took us there some years ago and we've been regulars ever since.

Just a few blocks from the beach, in Riviera Village, this is an enchanting respite from the usual loud, plastic places...the Green Temple is serene with it's trickling water fountain, colourfully cushioned seats, and menu full of healthy choices. The staff is friendly, and the food is as tasty as it is healthy. My family has long been fans of... More
