If you are looking for vegetarian, or even if you are like me and only half of your group is vegi, this place is awesome. The help is a group of servers that all work together so you're always...

I liked my food - it wasn't amazing but it was pretty good considering that it's all good for you stuff. :) Never had egg-less noodles before and I like them. Hubby had... More

If you're looking for vegetarian food, definitely go here. The restaurant has a very laid back feel, the food is amazing, and you can't beat the prices. It's always packed with fun people and I guarantee even meat eaters will want to come back!! Don't forget to try the sweet and sour chicken!

I'm not a vegetarian but I consider myself a healthnut. I have only gone here once and enjoyed their Tom Yum soup and Legendary Oriental Chicken Salad. The bf got the Orange chicken and it tasted like the real thang! I'm looking forward to trying their other heart healthy, animal friendly dishes! =)
