I just read that it has closed, really a pity. When I was there we ate very well and with a wide choice. Hopefully reopen!

Sad that it has closed. They had great selection of tasty asian dishes and desserts, all vegan. Service was fine but not great. I sure hope they find a place to reopen.

We were visiting SF and happened upon this restaurant. We were very pleased by the large number of vegan options. It was absolutely delicious. We will definitely eat here again if we are in the area.

I ordered a couple of vegan dishes as a take away. They were all fine but definitely nothing to write home about, as I had expected given the (largely) positive reviews on here. Restaurant decor was not particularly appealing either so not too sorry I didn't have time to stay and eat there.

We ordered Pad Thai and it was really awful. My mother (not a vegetarian like the rest of us) ordered the sweet and sour chicken and never realized it was faux chicken so she was happy. They tried hard to make up for it by bringing several yummy desserts on the house and did not charge us for the Pad... More

The neighbourhood gets a bit seedy as you walk to the restaurant and it doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is excellent. Good potions sizes, bring some friends for sharing. They do have dishes that try to mimic the meat alternatives but these versions taste even better! Try the lemongrass specialty dish.

Good vegetarian food, especially like their broken rice. Only real complaint would be the location, hard to find parking and not pleasant to walk around during night time.

Asian cuisine with a fantastic rapport price/quality! All dishes are vegan! Fish and meat are vegtable. So good! For us was a paradise! The ambient is minimal, but the staff is hospitable and attentive. It was a wonderfull experience!

There were so many wonderful things on the menu it was hard to decide what to order. Our group ordered a wide variety and passed the different dishes around so we each got to try everything ordered, They have some unusual and delicious vegan meat substitutes - the vegan chicken was outstanding!!!! Sure do wish I could find it so... More

I went for a mid week meal early evening. I had starter & mains and both were really tasty and good value for money. The star of the show was the main. I'm a bit of a carnivore but this veggie option was really really good (sorry, can't remember the dish) - deep fried soya with rice & sauce. This... More
