Food for the Soul

I've been coming to Jyoti Bihanga for over 20 years and it never disappoints. The food is so healthy and yummy and makes you feel renewed and happy by the time you leave.

Very good food. Service was interesting.The neatloaf was delicious. I would like to try some other items on my next visit. My 6 year old nephew was with us & ordering for him was tricky because they weren't interested in modifying the menu items to suit his tastes. (We wanted to order several side dishes for him rather than an... More

My first visit to this restaurant but it won't be my last. Extensive vegetarian menu with options for vegan and gluten free. I had the curry of the day....totally yummy curry served with brown rice. My friend, who is gluten intolerant, had the gluten free option of their famous "neatloaf"...a plate of pure comfort food, replete with mashed potatoes and... More

The menu is varied and very inventive, intersecting eastern cuisines with old world tastes, all in an exquisitely vegetarian, unique style. You can read books of Sri Chinmoy while dining in a very relaxing, quite space

There are so many options the only challenge was choosing a dish. We started with the House made hummus dip. Served with yummy cucumbers. I had an enchanted garden salad with the lemon tahini dressing. The portions are huge! Very good deal for the money. Best vegan cake ever. Do not miss the Chai prepared daily.

The pale blue walls with charming cafe curtains sets the mood for a simple lunch. Sun streams in and sweeps you away from the Adams Ave. "scene". The colorful artwork is that of Sri Chinmoy - which sets the tone with suggestions like "Dance", "Smile", "Laughter"... The menu is diversified with true meaty names like "Reuben" or "Neatloaf" to put... More

All dishes were very good. The service was fine, a bit slow, not bad for us as we were talking anyway. I think the pace is by design to... More

We live in San Diego. My daughter is a vegetarian, but my wife and I are not, however when we all go out we like to pick a restaurant where we are all comfortable. Jyoti Bihanga is 100% Vegetarian, an important consideration for my daughter who sometimes feels uncomfortable in restaurants that claim to serve vegetarian, but may hedge in... More

So, we have been looking for a vegan restaurant to try in San Diego, however, there are VERY few and of those, nothing great. It is located on the edge of Normal Heights Business District on a very busy corner with a stoplight. The area felt a little unsafe. That atmosphere inside was nice and clean and every table was...
