Vegan in a Beautiful Enviro

I absolutely loved Green Temple! The inner garden with fountain (and koi!) made for a delightful meal. The walls were beautifully painted. It's an upbeat zen feel. I had the vegetarian lasagna and could have eaten the same thing for my next 5 meals. It was white sauced based, and not the heavy... read more

Their food is vegetarian / vegan, made with care, and is yummy. Their tofu dressing will keep you coming back. Their seating area is a beautiful space and sets you in the mood for a tranquil feeling. One of my favorite places!

The food is great. The ambience is great. It all goes with a relaxed, do-good-things-for-your-body mood. The prices are fair for the quality of the food, everything is homemade and fresh and the tofu sauce is AMAZING! If you're addicted to it like I am, you can now buy it in large containers to take home!

Love the decor and ambience. Love the owners and staff. Love the healthy vegetarian food choices. So much better for you than all that heavy, greasy meaty stuff.

Interesting place and friendly and i enjoyed the food again. One of my favorites in the Riviera. My husband never liked vegetarian food, but we had a friend visit and he is pretty strict, so we tried it and I keep going whenever I can.

Tucked away off of Catalina Avenue just past Avenue I is a great hidden restaurant. The food is excellent and the service just is just as good. Peaceful furnishings add to its ambiance. If you are around Redondo Beach and you enjoy a good meal....be sure to try this one. I am not a devoted vegetarian... just like good food... More

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
