We had the prix fixe menu and the experience was very good! The food was delicious, the waiter was very nice and friendly and the overall experience was great. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys good vegetarian food. The only small negative is the price, although the food is excellent I'm not sure it is worth that much money.

OMG, OMG, OMG. My brother-in-law took us out to eat here for lunch a couple of hours before we boarded a plane to fly back to Portland, OR. After the most amazing noodle stone rice bowl we walked my brother-in-law back to his office across the street from the Empire State Building. Then, we turned around and walked the 3... More

My son and I were in NYC to visit his school. We looked for a vegetarian place along our path for the day with good reviews. The sky had just opened up and we were drenched and didn't have a reservation. Luckily they were able to squeeze us in. Great atmosphere and service, and the food was delicious. It was... More

Very nice vegetarian/vegan restaurant. Everything is tasty and fresh. The decoration and the atmoshere is very cozy. I absolutely recomment to have lunch or dinner there - even if you aren't vegetarian or vegan. The 'Tofu delight' and the 'Stone bowl Rice' are amazing.

This restaurant was my favorite stop during my stay in NYC. Very well located: central midtown. Very beautiful in side; shoes need to be removed. When sitting inside, you really forget your in the big apple and feel like you've been transported to South Korea. Our waitress Mickie was adorable and very helpful. Food; AMAZING! We all had different meals... More

3rd time we've been here. Great food, generous portion sizes. Even the people on the table next to us, who didn't realise it was a vegan restaurant, loved the food. Highly recommended!
