Vegans don't have many choices in Dayton so I really wanted this restaurant to make it but after four tries, I'm sorry that I can't recommend it. The restaurant which is located in the Dayton Mall features processed "vegan" meat and cheese substitutes that are salty and heavy on oil. The sweet potato fries are simply awful...greasy and cold every time. The side order of slaw comes in a tiny plastic cup the size of a 50-cent piece. The soups are a bit better, but not much and again they are heavily salted. I tried the salad and it was wilted and tasted like it had been in the fridge for a couple of days. The service staff is friendly and tries to be accomodating given what they have to work with in terms of the food offerings. Vegans are better off trying the veggie and rice dishes at the nearby P.F. Changs.
