We need more of these sort of restaurants who cater to the health of their patrons. I appreciate it very much! :-) Very friendly and attentive staff! They even serve GLUTEN FREE choices! :-) Loved their fresh spring rolls. Great tasting!! Also, the "Gurus curry" was excellent with brown nutty rice. The bean curd they use in it is very... More

I am not a vegetarian, but this is one of my favorite restaurants in town. I come here frequently enough for the people working there to recognize me. The food is plentiful and it's all vegan! They have "fake" chicken and it tastes pretty good. I tend to get the chow mein, because it is that yummy. I have never... More

Long ago, in small town San Jose, this was home to a high-end italian Resturant. it moved - neighborhood changed - big town, older area now, but the food is well worth the journey down one of the older main streets. A popular spot with young college crowd, to hip too, and folks who enjoy good food. We 4 had... More

This is an assuming looking restaurant beside a gas station downtown. The vegan menu selection is extensive from all cultures and the quality was very good, with very attentive service. Vegan cheesecake was excellent.

This is really a great place for vegan and vegetarian food lovers. I would recommend the Vegetarian Lasagne and some of the lunch combos.

I was somewhat apprehensive about visiting this restaurant while in San Jose. There was good reviews on Yelp but some reviewers had mentioned that the restaurant was perhaps run by some sort of cult who had the picture of their leader in the hall way. Not one to be deterred (and given the various good reviews about the food), I... More

This is a very good vegetarian restaurant in San Jose - so yummy. They have a broad range of things to order - tasty appetizers with a beautiful presentation such as their avocado tower. Their main dishes are deliscious - some look like "meat" such as shrimp but are vegetarian. They have chocolate coconut ice cream and other things for... More

I love this place. The food is exceptionally good and every one is always cheerful and friendly. The Papaya salad is a favorite, but if you like spinach, you must try their spinach salad... or the quinoa/sushi appetizer... the curries are outstanding! My favorite is the Guru Curry.. and if you are hesitant about eating food that only looks like... More

I go to a lot of vegan restaurants, and usually the faux meat places are "just okay". But Vegetarian House is different. There are many many dishes that are not faux meat, but rather real plant food prepared in interesting ways. I was there with two meat eaters and they both were very pleasantly surprised by the wonderful taste of... More

I went with my dad, he was very skeptical at first (because he is a meat eater). When we walked in the atmosphere was so calm and soothing. We ordered pho, chow mein, and a curry tofu dish. He wasn't sure what to expect because he didn't know what half the items were on the menu. But it was amazing,... More
