My family had a fabulous vegetarian dinner at Green Temple during a recent trip to Redondo Beach. The menu was inventive, all the employees were helpful and the decor was bohemian and fun. We tried the special of the day (tamales), a divine salad and the tofu steamers. The cashew and macadamia nut pie was a fantastic dessert. We highly... More

I love this place, cool atmosphere, good food. This is a vegetarian place, though I am not vegetarian myself, I still choose to go here often because I love the food and atmosphere.

After being on the road for three weeks, I was so happy to get home and have lunch on a beautiful day at one of my favorite places to get great vegan food.

While I tend towards vegetarian/vegan dishes when we eat out, this is the first time I've eaten somewhere completely vegan. It's a place I'm ready to go back to today! The seating is scattered throughout the restaurant in small courtyards, inside the restaurant and out in front. The decor was typical new age bohemian - very casual, very comfortable. The... More

After an energy healing session, I decided to go vegan/vegetarian for a week or more. My first meal was at Green Temple. It was a good spot. I had the tofu steamer over vegetables and rice. The combination was just okay and quite pricey for what it was, but the sauce on top was delicious. I would come back to... More

We eat at Green Temple every time that I visit my family in Southern California. The menu has remained the same over the years. The quality of the food remains high. The servers are friendly and the restaurant is charming. I look forward to the next time.

I absolutely loved Green Temple! The inner garden with fountain (and koi!) made for a delightful meal. The walls were beautifully painted. It's an upbeat zen feel. I had the vegetarian lasagna and could have eaten the same thing for my next 5 meals. It was white sauced based, and not the heavy red stuff. Did not miss the meat... More
