Excellent food

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!

Today I visited the Merit Vegetarian Restaurant for a quick lunch. I ordered one of their Specialties- Gourmet Deluxe, which was good and spicy. While ordering that, the waitress asked me: White rice or brown rice? I answered White rice. Later, when I got the bill, I was surprised to find out that I was charged for the rice as... More

First time i went to a vegan-only restaurant and tried the vegan items which they said mimic the texture and taste of meat - and man, they were right. delicious food and very generous serving size - one dish is enough for one person.

Interesting restaurant. All the food is named like regular non-vegetarian food. My non-vegetarian friends say it does not taste like the non-vegetarian dish but is still good.

Merit offers pretty good vegan food, especially since it's greatly lacking in the South Bay. I really like the Chow Mien and Sweet & Sour Chicken. The only aspect that concerns me is the likeliness that they use MSG in their food, which I'm basing on the look of the veggies. I wish it wasn't in their food or any... More
