Very good vegetarian restaurant

My husband and I visited this place recently and were both very happy with our choices. We had non fried spring rolls, a curry soup and a vegetable vermicelli and they were all amazingly good. One word to the nice staff: the guys were really friendly and attentive.

This place is horribly understaffed. The waiters run around like chickens in a typhoon -- apologies at the ready for all of the mistakes that they know are going to happen. The manager stands around like the "dear leader", waiting for those critical errors that she can shoot someone for. I loved the food, but I'm torn about coming back... More

We visited twice in the past week and tried a number of dishes. The ambience is quiet and the staff are very friendly. We tried the imperial rolls and pot stickers for appetizers. Both were great! We had ordered the spicy noodle soup, vermicelli soup, 5 spice tofu, Thai fried rice and the vermicelli salad. We loved the fried rice,... More

This vegan restaurant is exceptional with a very wide and varied menu. We had the summer rolls with peanut dipping sauce to share, followed by vegetable curry with coconut milk and stir fried "beef" with vegetables. Dessert was pumpkin and almond cheesecake and the entire meal was fantastic. The service was excellent and the food was just beautiful. Everything is... More

Did take out. The place was busy but they turned around the order quickly and gave me some water to drink while I waited.

Wide selection of soups, salads, curries, stir fry and noodles. Large portions. My friend and I ordered the potstickers, papaya salad, and sweet potato curry, and Vietnamese coffee...all very good. The staff is very, very friendly. Definitely coming back to try more.

Varied vegan menu with some really tasty vegan cheesecakes. I've always loved their tofu dishes - the mama claypot is my favorite.

This is an oasis of vegan cuisine in an ocean of flexetarian restaurants. All of the food here is vegan and all of the ingredients are organic when available or price permits. This is a great place. Check it out!

We had the spicy sweet potato curry which wasn't very spicy so we added the chili sauce to it and that kicked it up a notch! Lots of veggies, fake chicken and tofu with a flavorful curry sauce. Lemongrass tofu with brown rice had tons of veggies and a kind of sweet tangy flavor. Quick service even though the place... More

I enjoy testing this one, and as we requested they made sure that we didn't get any gluten or dairy. The food was full of flavour I discovered new ingredients and it was a great experience. I would definitely recommend it!
