Friendly service, tasty food - never missed the complete absence of animal products in their food. Their specials are all winners; clay pot dishes in particular are so rich in umami. This is a place we do (and will continue) to visit regularly

Due to health concerns with toxins in food and even harder to eat health while dining out, we have changed our diets in a very big way. We are incorporating more vegetables and less meat. We look for restaurants that offer true vegetarian dishes and the use of spices and herbs to season, without MSGs and preservatives. Fresh is key,... More

I visited this place, my second after 3 years, recently for dinner. The non-fried spring rolls were delicious and was served quickly. We hasd trouble communicating some minor changes to the menu to the waitress; she couldn't follow English it appears. The entree was way too salty for my palette and I had to let it go. The fried rice... More

I have been here several times with vegetarian friends. Real good tasty food, even if you are a meat lover you should go check this place out. Many options, some quite spicy. Never had a bad dish here. Service is pretty good. Can get crowded during lunch times. Prices are quite reasonable. For vegetarians / vegans this has got to... More

Took some non-vegan friends there and they enjoyed it very much. The spicy foods are really spicy - watch out :-)

Tried their Thai vegetarian food and coconut water. Both were tasty. The veg rolls were too oily. The service was quick.

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
