Went for a quick bite... Had the curry noodle and veggie bowl, Simply outstanding.. So if you want a healthy mean this is the place. Highly recommend. Have to go back and try the Veggie burger and Kale salad that my daughter had,

Simply perfect food! We love eating here and the Beverly Hills location. The Thai sauces are yum yum. They remodeled this location. Nice casual place with excellent eats.

Tonight was my first time here. I ordered the coconut curry with veggies and tofu. The flavor was fantastic! But the noodles were so over cooked it was like eating glue. I'll try them one more time.

Quintessential southern California style, with a bright, sunny atmosphere and tables inside and on a small patio (well sheltered from the street noise--bravo). The food is also bright and sunny--very fresh, mostly vegetarian with some fish options, creative combinations and robust flavors. We tried the grilled tuna burger (a delicious combination of tuna, spicy greens and a great aioli) and... More

The tables are set with succulent plants and that reflects the feeling of the place: clean, sustainable, healthy (lots of vegetarian and vegan options), full flavors, robust tastes. Lots more than just coffees and teas here, so settle in for a nice break.

Very delicious and varied menu, especially if you're a healthy eater and/or vegetarian like me. Plenty on menu to choose from and loads of delicious juices and desserts too! Had the yellow coconut curry veggie bowl and it was to die for! And the M lemonade and the ginger lemonade both delicious! They are pet friendly on patio too which... More

Great vegetarian, organic and also gluten free food. The Green Curry bowl is excellent - really really good! The gluten free peanut butter cookies are not to be missed also!

A nice place to have lunch if you are vegan. Good variety and the food we had (The M chopped salad and a tempeh sandwich) was tasty.

Two vegans and two vegetarians went to this vegan/veggie friendly restaurant. We appreciated the choices and creativity on the menu. Two of us loved our dishes, and two liked them, but when asked 'would you order it again?', said that they would try something else. If you go - and you like sweet potato fries - their's are a MUST!... More
