Healthy food, nicely prepared with very attentive service. Vegetables were fresh, my juice was delightful. I often look for places like this when traveling and was pleasantly pleased. Not for a special, fancy evening but a great wholesome experience.

- 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).

When I visit my brothers family in San Jose we always go this place. We find an excuse to celebrate something. 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. Cannot wait to go back there to... More

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.
