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

Their food is vegetarian / vegan, made with care, and is yummy. Their tofu dressing will keep you coming back. Their seating area is a beautiful space and sets you in the mood for a tranquil feeling. One of my favorite places!

The food is great. The ambience is great. It all goes with a relaxed, do-good-things-for-your-body mood. The prices are fair for the quality of the food, everything is homemade and fresh and the tofu sauce is AMAZING! If you're addicted to it like I am, you can now buy it in large containers to take home!

Love the decor and ambience. Love the owners and staff. Love the healthy vegetarian food choices. So much better for you than all that heavy, greasy meaty stuff.

Interesting place and friendly and i enjoyed the food again. One of my favorites in the Riviera. My husband never liked vegetarian food, but we had a friend visit and he is pretty strict, so we tried it and I keep going whenever I can.

Tucked away off of Catalina Avenue just past Avenue I is a great hidden restaurant. The food is excellent and the service just is just as good. Peaceful furnishings add to its ambiance. If you are around Redondo Beach and you enjoy a good meal....be sure to try this one. I am not a devoted vegetarian... just like good food... More

I have been here a few times and it has good alternative vegetarian choices and the dishes are always tasty. it is tucked in a corner off an alley so hard to find. nice outdoor patio. the vibe is a bit "hippyish" in it looks, feel and with the staff.
