“Great place for Vegan Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

It is really tough to find a good Vegan restaurant in our area. Merit has a good menu and though the service is not always the most predictable, the menu is varied and quite good. My favorite appetizer is the veggie rice bun.

“Excellent vegetarian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Excellent quality, fresh food, wonderfully seasoned. Staff was very friendly. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Even if you are not a vegetarian, you will love the quality and the portion size.

The soymilk ice cream - two scoops - was superior. My family ordered a second, after we devoured the first.

This place is tucked away on the side of a shopping strip, but definitely worth searching out.

“Vietnamese Vegan Gem in Silicon Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place is awesome. There are a few raw (mostly raw) entrees including the papaya, rainbow and lotus root salads. The cooked entrees are reasonably priced and very tasty. They tend to use a lot of veggie meats. The pho and bun hue noodle soups are delicious!

“Extremely Tasty Asian Vegan Food with Fab Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

My sisters have been coming here for a year so on my visit, we went for dinner. The selection is diverse and the food very tasty. The dishes have lots of vegetables too which some times you don't see at vegan places.

Lively atmosphere with a great service staff that's friendly, hard working and always making sure you're enjoying the food. Thumbs up.
