Seriously good vegan comfort food

Tons of comfort food options here - not exactly low fat but all vegan and all quite satisfying. Great desserts, too.

Amazing food all around in a cute little west village establishment. I love brining non veggies friends to check out their extensive menu. Everyone always leaves satisfied.

Service - 5 stars The employees were very friendly. Attentive, but not overbearing. Food - 4 stars The sweet and sour chicken was really good! Yum! I only wish the chicken pieces were crispy! I'll definitely order that again next time! The Creole soul chicken was yummy as well! It was battered very well. Nice and crispy! The popcorn chicken... More

Looking for a place to eat in the area and the reviews of Red Bamboo made it seem fantastic, so we went for dinner around 5pm on a Sunday evening. We were seated right away. There were patrons at nearly every table. Someone brought water and took our appetizer order. We got chicken wings and collard green rolls. They seemed... More

We shared the zucchini and tofu and sweet potato and broccoli all were tempura, and the black bean vegie stir fry with brown rice. Service was fast, food came out fast and was absolutely delicious, we also had a glass of Malbec which had... More

I am genuinely baffled at the glowing reviews here. I've never eaten such sub-par food in a restaurant, nevermind a veggie one! The inside was buzzing when I arrived, but the decor was cheerless, lacking in personality. It felt like a stop-gap, temporary unit for a restaurant. Don't be fooled by appearances I told myself as I took my seat.... More

As a non-vegetarian, I came to this restaurant somewhat curious. The menu reads like a normal carnivore restaurant - seafood, beef, chicken, etc. But the speciality here, of course, is that all the "meats" are actually mock meat, made from vegetarian substitutes (and flavoured to taste like meat). I have to say, although the texture of the mock meats were... More

My brother, who is a vegetarian, was drooling at the mention of this restaurant. Having eaten here many times on previous visits to the city, he was anxious to share this find with his family. You would not have known that the

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
