Enjoyed Repeat Visit to Vegetarian House

We went to dinner at Vegetarian House and had a very good time. This was a repeat visit for us. Service as usual is very good. This time we enjoyed Japanese tempura, happy crispy rice, and sea fruits grill. This is a wrap that one makes at the table. Quite fun thing to make as well as... read more

I went in here in a large group while visiting San Jose. The staff is friendly. We had reservation and were promptly seated. We ordered a number of entrees and ended up sharing. In ten entrees, we did not find a single one we did not like. Everything was just delicious. And they have excellent cheesecake. Great place.

I love going to Vegetarian House. I'd go there after work, about an hour before they close. There's only a few people, which I like better than being there during busy hours. It's usually crowded, and for good reason. There is no meat, dairy, GMO and anything bad for you in the menu. Even the desserts are fantastic. Their menu... More

Fun and innovative vegetarian items on the menu. The staff are very responsive and friendly. There is a small parking lot adjacent to the restaurant.

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
