Everything we tried here was fantastic - we even came back to eat a second time during our week-long stay, AND bought their cookbook! Tasty, fresh food, and friendly service!

There is an extensive menu of vegetarian and vegan dishes, and many selections can be served gluten free. The food is tasty, but the vegan cheese still tastes like vegan cheese. Did not inquire if the vegetarian cheese is animal rennet-free. Kind of expensive.

So so good. Don’t let the vegan menu scare you. We had banana pancakes and banana bread French toast. Amazing smoothies.

So I just drove out of my way to go to this place to try their vegan Reuben sandwich which turned out not to be vegan at all and in my opinion...not even vegetarian because they put Swiss cheese on it! Swiss cheese has rennet...in it made from cow’s or goat’s stomach and it requires the animal be slaughtered . The worse part is that they said it was my fault because, “the menu clearly states it has cheese on it and that we are a VEGETARIAN restaurant NOT vegan!!” Therefore they said that if I still wanted my lunch I would have to pay again and the sandwich was already like $14!! Big bummers because I really used to look forward to coming here every time I’m on Big Island. While the sandwich is REALLY good, that’s just not the right way to treat customers so not my kinda place.More

I love Under the Bhodi Tree, the food is consistently wonderful and there is usually a new special to try. I feel like it’s a must try restaurant if you are visiting the island for the fruit alone.

Great food! Super Bohdi scramble. I kept it simple with mushrooms, spinach and onions. The vegan cheese added a creaminess to the JUST egg. Could not go wrong with fruit and toast. Really fresh and ripe papaya.

We had dinner in this restaurant two times. It is located in a small shopping area. There are several options for vegetarians. I ordered fish and chips and a fruit smoothie. The food was great.

This is the best vegetarian restaurant I have eaten at lately. The flavors were amazing and had us oooooing and awing throughout our meal. You have to try their Nahkon Noodles!! I could eat this for every meal :) You order at the counter and...have the option to eat inside our outside. Friendly service and lots of quality.More

I will admit that not being a vegetarian my expectations were not particularly high, but when three of the four of us were disappointed to one degree or another, I'm forced to leave a mediocre review, My burger was not interesting, our friend's salad had...more jalapenos than was pleasant. I'm sorry that we went there.More

We went here with another couple because she is a vegetarian. I like vegetarian food, as well, but this was disappointing. The inside is very tiny with no air con. I ordered a salad with felafel, one of my favorites. The felafel was dry without...much taste. The other three in our group thought their dishes were just okay. The smoothies were very good. I think this restaurant is way overpriced for the food and atmosphere. Maybe because of the high rent at its location.More

Restaurant Is very small and informal. Order at the counter, find a seat. Unclear, if they offer gift certificates. Wide variety of options for vegetarians.
