We were at a conference in NY and this restaurant was recommended to us because it was a nearby vegetarian restaurant. We were looking forward to a meal that would make the vegetables shine. This restaurant does not do that. The food is not bad. But most of the dishes are 'fake meat'. The menu contains references to meat and... More

Our family visited zen palate near Times Square this week for dinner. We are vegan and thought to try this place while in the city. We ordered several things from the menu - the food was pretty mediocre. I have been to several vegan places before and this one did not really offer any tastes that would make me want... More

Not something that you will see at the normal Americanized Asian restaurants. Interesting meals that had our taste buds guessing. If you like interesting dishes, this could be your place.

Very good and very reasonable . A seperate gluten free menu and a waiter who saw that soy sauce came out and without me saying anything took it back for a gluten free sauce.The front wall slides back and was great for enjoying the sights and sounds. Appetizer and meal for under $15. I will go again..

As a longtime vegetarian and a senior with blood pressure issues, I always look for creative meals minus the salt found in most restaurant meals. The waiter here was extremely patient and his recommendations were right on. I had sautéed dumplings with peanut sauce, and perfectly cooked steamed veggies, which I also enjoyed the peanut sauce with. My plate was... More

If you are looking for a reliable vegetarian / vegan restaurant in Hell's Kitchen a short walk from the Time Square Theatre District, Zen Palate is a good choice. Nothing fancy, just reliable and tasty oversized Asian dishes with mock chicken that would easily fool your non vegan friends. Try the Temple of Zen and Sizzling Medallions of "chicken lightly...

As a long time vegetarian, it is always a DELIGHT to find a restaurant with so many options...this place is wonderful! The grilled seitan is phenomenal....everything our party tried was excellent, and most of them were committed carnivores who appreciate good vegan cooking and everyone was very happy with their choices...
