They have a pre-set menu each day - you pick what you like. Go for the special dish - we had sweet potato lo mein - seemed the best.

Having visited a lot of vegetarian restaurants in the North America, Asia, and Europe, this is among the finest. Its beauty is its simplicity: no menu and only one meal at a time. You have the special of the day or you leave. But you never want to leave. On a recent trip to San Diego, we ate breakfast, lunch,... More

The food here is excellent - and I'm fussy about food. That said, their business plan seems to need a little work. They offer only a prix fixe breakfast/brunch buffet at breakfast/brunch time for $9.00 - it is reasonable for what you can eat, but there may be some waste because it is once through and you don't know how...

Absolutely fantastic culinary experience. Located in the North Park neighbourhood of San Diego. We are not vegetarians and decided to give this restaurant a try, with two toddlers in tow. The kids loved it (they have gorgeous wooden children's tables, too), we loved it. Food was delicate, absolutely delicious, seasonal and detailed to the finest level. If you hv to... More

The ambiance, is a 11+ and the beer and wine is a bonus. I'm not a vegetarian, but the food was pretty good. They serve 1 soup, 1 salad and 1 entree per meal, not a lot to choose from. Mi esposa ordered the salad. It was a mixed green with a strange red crumpled topping, not so great. My... More

Wow, this place was great! I went during a business trip in February, and returned on my next trip in March. They make just one entree each night, plus your choice of soup and salad. (All for $16.50! It's more than you can eat.) On each trip, the entree was creative and delicious. They put a lot of thought into... More
