We arrived at 6:30 pm on a beautiful Friday night and the line to order took about 20 minutes to get through. Then, we had to wait about 30 minutes for our food. Luckily we got some tasty chips and salsa to tide us over. The chips were nice and thick, so they didn't break when picking up the salsa.... More

I have stopped in numerous times over the last couple months. I consistently receive great food and service. The Bubba is my favorite, the filling proportions are always perfect. If you are looking for a quick, healthy grab this is a great choice.

We came here for lunch and were pretty happy with the food and prices. Portions were generous and tasty. Menu caters more to meatless and dairy free meals, but there are a few items with meat. The fruit drinks are wonderful. They also have a kid's menu offered. My only complaint is the service is more like a fast food... More

We loved the selection of food and the way it was presented. Everything was fresh and homemade cookies were amazing! We had scrumptious smoothies to drink too. I especially liked the Marionberry Ginger smoothie.

I eat here at least once a month with my family. The food is good and fresh. We like it that there are vegetarian and other more healthy choices. It is next to the community center, so it works well after we go swimming.

I've gone here three times to give them a fair chance. I've had the Bollywood Bowl, Spanky's Bowl, and Southwestern Green Chile burrito. Every time, the place is crowded. Laughing Planet is opening new locations like crazy so it's obvious they're making more money than they know what to do with. Their recipe for success is, in my opinion, giving... More

We stayed one night in Beaverton and drove around looking for a somewhat healthy place to eat. And oh man did we find it! Laughing planet was not only healthy but incredibly tasty. I sampled everything my husband and kids ordered and it was all so fresh and delicious! I highly recommend this little place. It's also gluten free and... More

This restaurant was bigger than expected and had a quirky motif. The menu consists of burritos, quesadillas, bowls and salads with a fun twist of different veggies and sauces. The menu in the restaurant and online very clearly marks items which are vegan, gluten free or paleo for those looking for that. We had the Bollywood Bowl and Paleo and... More

This little place is usually bustling, with appeal to families (plastic dinosaurs everywhere) and adults alike. Whether you eat vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, nut free, or carnivorous fare, you'll find something delicious on their extensive menu. We live nearby and eat here often. Good for takeout too if you'd rather go sit on a hill in Gabriel Park.

...because the waiters and other customers were so rude that I would never go back otherwise. We took our grand-daughter swimming at Gabriel Park and stopped in for a bite to eat afterwards. It wasn't that busy, only a few customers. We took our menus to a side table so we wouldn't get in the way of other customers ordering.... More
