“Eeeeeh .... sort of 1982”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Souen reminds me of the kind of vegetarian restaurant I would have frequented in 1982. Vegan and macrobiotic food has come so far since those days, and yet Souen is still doin' the "same old, same old". There are now so many restaurants serving up inspired and interesting whole foods that achieve new heights of gourmet yumminess. Unless I was right around the corner I'm not sure I would go out of my way for Souen any longer, I can steam kale and brown rice at home.

“Great Organic Macrobiotic Japanese Fusion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

"Bumped" into Souen @ the East Village and gave it a try. Loved it so much that we went to another Souen location the same day! Foods served are healthy, low in fat and very very delicious! Even the desserts are good! The East Village location has about 10 different ramen noodle varieties to choose from - I'll be back each weekend to try them all!

“Go somewhere else!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

After reading good reviews, we decided to give it a shot. WOW! YUCK! I am a vegetarian and this place sucks. We both got different versions of the ramen and each ate less then than 1/2. The flavors are not good and it was a total waste of $40. I will NOT be going back here again. EVER. There are so many GREAT places to eat, don't waste your time here!!!
