Totally Vegan

This restaurant caters to a totally vegan crowd. The menu offers a great deal of choices and their vegan sushi is quite impressive.

Sipz has the very best vegetarian food I've ever had. Everything is so flavorful and delicious - I can't pick a favorite, but the walnut "shrimp" (made with toufu) is a standout. I eat here every time I'm in San Diego and would love it if they would open a branch in the Metro Detroit area!

I like to go to SIPZ at night when there is a sushi chef. My favorite meal is the caterpillar roll that replaces the traditional eel with yam. Lovely avocado makes the caterpillar green. I always have a little trouble finding vegetarian restaurants when I travel so I am giving back to those who have helped me. This place is... 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. Often that restaurant is Spiz. We pick Spiz because the food is good, not great, but they are 100% Vegetarian, an important consideration for my daughter... More

Impressive, extremely tasty Asian-fusion food, which will get nods of approval from even the non-vegetarians in your group. A great place to introduce a newbie to Sushi, without having to deal with the frowns and the unfounded "I don't eat raw fish" comments, since you get the spectacular flavor of a gourmet sushi roll without an ounce of seafood in...

This place has the most extensive selection of mock meats of any place I've been, and the variety of dishes is amazing. The vegetarian sushi is amazing, and worth the wait as it's made fresh.

Very fresh... Food was excellent. Great experience since I'm not a vegetarian. I highly recommend trying this place. The spring rolls are great! I noticed that if you pay with cash, there are a few freebies that they toss in for you. Ask and they will let you know.

I really like their kung pao "chicken". The food is always fresh, for $1 more you can add broccoli to any mean which then gives you enough for a full meal to take home. The atmosphere is bright, cheery and relaxed. The deserts are really good as well and service is top notch.

This is a really great place to eat. If you go for lunch order the sampler appetizers and cups of soup. The bowls are HUGE. You may want to share. Excellent very fresh food. A must do.

I've been to this restaurant twice and always had great food. The portions are big and prices low. they have all sorts of different foods to try from sushi to noodles...etc. Best of all they have both tofu and soy versions of meat. We also tried the coconut cake which was great. If you like Asian food in general you... More
