It was the middle of the lunch hour as we pulled into the last parking at the back of the building housing a Silicon Valley technical bookstore, and we wondered where we would eat lunch. As I turned off the ignition, I looked up and saw the front door of the Merit Vegetarian Restaurant. As my wife studied the menu,... More

As a vegetarian for over 30 years I have visited several vegetarian or vegetarian friendly restaurants around the world. Merit Restaurant has to have the first place as my favorite place to eat. Seriously, rarely choice, quality and the total commitment of the owner to drive the vegan/vegetarian cause by simply offering you a great meal. Very well priced and... More

We love the lunch menu...and quick service at that time. Easy parking. Convenient. The home baked chocolate (vegan!) cake with almonds was killer. Remember: no alcohol.

Absolutely delicious! I had the Vietnamese Crepe and a Pho soup. Portions were massive, and I struggled to finish, despite a <$20 bill. I have not experienced better Vietnamese food.

It is really tough to find a good Vegan restaurant in our area. Merit has a good menu and though the service is not always the most predictable, the menu is varied and quite good. My favorite appetizer is the veggie rice bun.

Excellent quality, fresh food, wonderfully seasoned. Staff was very friendly. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Even if you are not a vegetarian, you will love the quality and the portion size. The soymilk ice cream - two scoops - was superior. My family ordered a second, after we devoured the first. This place is tucked away on the side of a shopping... More

This place is awesome. There are a few raw (mostly raw) entrees including the papaya, rainbow and lotus root salads. The cooked entrees are reasonably priced and very tasty. They tend to use a lot of veggie meats. The pho and bun hue noodle soups are delicious!

My sisters have been coming here for a year so on my visit, we went for dinner. The selection is diverse and the food very tasty. The dishes have lots of vegetables too which some times you don't see at vegan places. Lively atmosphere with a great service staff that's friendly, hard working and always making sure you're enjoying the... More
