An Abundance of Veggie Choices! Gluten-free too!

As a mostly vegan, gluten-free diner, I'm used to having a choice of only one or two things on any menu…I was thrilled to have so many items to select from! My friends and I did a little sharing, so I got to try several things…the Teriyaki Mock Sesame Eel appetizer was delicious, and the Veg... read more

We've been going there for years. Although we are not vegetarians, we appreciate the care and innovation with which the food is prepared. The menu is creative, healthy, and satisfying, and all at a fair price in a very nice, casual atmosphere. We recommend it highly.

Very large servings of food. We ordered a few dishes and shared them. I don't think there is a bad item on the menu. The service is excellent and you can tell they are trying to please their customers. I would eat here again.

I had been there multiple times and has a variety of dishes, and I like the soup the best. Last time I ordered the Tom Yum soup, I tried it and it had no taste. That is because it was plain boiled water. When I asked them to give me Tom Yum soup(an entree),they didn't give me a new bowl... More

We are all Gluten free in our family & the owner has taken this challenge very seriously. They keep their GF preparation section separated since they made this change. The proteins are limited to tofu but they had revamped part of their menu to include GF items. We love the Bamboo Fungus soup, Wakame Soup, Cold Basil Roll, Root Vegetables... More

If you are either a vegetarian or just trying the lifestyle on, this is the place to go! Try their hot soup and their spring rolls!

Hard to believe the meals we ate were not made from meat. This is a little cafe sized restaurant just inside Vienna. They were busy on a weekday afternoon for lunch, but service was quick. The staff were also very pleasant even though busy. The lunch portions were filling enough for two adults, but we opted to finish separate meals.... More

The food is extremely fresh & varied, The owners are very committed to providing safe Gluten Free food. They have a separate menu for Gluten free & have a separate prep cooking area so that the food doesn't get contaminated. There are good selections. On the REGULAR MENU our 3 favorites -1. General Tso’s Surprise chunks of soy protein in... More

A busy little tuck-away in Vienna close to post office. Service is spot on, right there, courteous and fast. Their menu is pretty extensive given that they offer vegan, vegetarian and pro-biotic selections. My friend had one of their trademark salads, I had a noodle combo bowl very Thai in taste, but lots of good herbs and broth. Both were... More

My husband and I have dined here every time we've been in the area, for almost 20 years now. We visited last weekend and once again, everything from the decor to service to food was magnificent! Favorites include the steamed dumplings, the sweet and sour, and any desert on the menu.
