- Good vegan food with a good selection and an Asian flavor - Colorful glass windows and cute decor make it a nice place for shared meals (you can really only enjoy them during the day though - Genuinely kind service - Free parking Cons: - Closed on Tuesdays - Open at specific hours and not all day

Vegetarian House is one of the rare restaurants where the food is as good and as healthy as I could make in my own kitchen. The ingredients are fresh, recipes exceptionally tasty, and dishes are offered with careful attention to presentation. The service is exemplary and though small, the dining room is comfortable (and not too noisy even when full).

We start with the house special soup, next spicy cha cha, then crispy mushroom delight and chow mein. We always end it with Sunday Banana fritters. With jasmine tea on the side.

As the name suggests, they have only vegetarian (vegan) food. I liked the place. I had so many choices. Not so common for veggies. Almond milk was good. Chowmin was horrible. Mushrooms were okay. Fired rice was just too good. Service can be improved.

Very good Vegetarian fare. We had the mildly spicy Vegetable plate and the Gyro Sandwich for lunch. Both were good and tasty. The restaurant is very clean and the staff was attentive/ We liked it so much, we came back with meat eating friends a few days later and they enjoyed it as well.
