We found great food here at budget friendly prices. We aren’t vegetarians but were looking for salads or a lighter meal and this was a perfect choice. We didn’t try any of the “fake meat” dishes (they have “chicken” and “beef”, I think it’s made...More

This is both vegan and healthful. By this I mean entrees are not loaded with oil, sugar and salt; food is lightly seasoned (which baffles some folks expectations). (Please note that food was delivered by a food delivery service.) I completely enjoyed Sesame Eggplant Tofu....More

Just delicious. The spring rolls are amazing, and the mushu mushy rolls were great, and for the main broccoli soy beef and curry vegetables were fantastic. Service was quick and friendly and at lunchtime in the week, it wasn’t too busy. A great choice!

In case you get confused by the “fish,” “chicken,” and “beef” on the menu, the servers helpfully wear T-shirts with the word VEGAN printed on the front in large letters. It probably saves them from having to answer a dozen questions per day along the...More

How nice to find a vegan restaurant so close to our hotel! The sign outside says vegetarian, but the menu covers says it's vegan. We're hoping the menu is right. The place is small, the tables are packed in tightly in the first room, and...More
