Great vegetarian dining; creative and delicious dishes, peaceful atmosphere, friendly, attentive staff. Extra precautions due to COVID. I went twice during my 4 day stay in San Francisco and actually would've been happy eating there everyday! Will definitely be back next visit.

This has long been an oasis in the Civic Center area, a simple restaurant with honest vegetarian cuisine, good recipes, well-presented. Don't expect anything fancy, but the food is good.

Just found this wonderful place, during our touristy outing in Sfo. Cool and calm interiors, delicious vegetarian food, generous quantities. My husband opted for dal and whole wheat bread, and I got taco with salad. The freshness of the food and its preparation shows in...the taste. We’ll come back again for sure!More

Our party was referred here by one of the Orpheum Theater employees. We enjoyed it so much and drooled over each others meal choice vowing to come back. (we did share!) But then I had to go back to see if it was as good...as I remembered. It was! and it will become a routine stop when I am in the area. Our server on the second visit was Nathaniel and he was helpful, friendly and did not rush us at all. It is a good location and I love the focus on wild mushrooms.More

Had lunch with a friend before going to the Main library to see a play. Such a convenient location, and not noisy - we could easily hear each other. Both liked our food. I had portabello quesadilla, an appetizer, filled me up like I'd have...an entree.More

We were going to the Orpheum Theater and wanted to get a little nosh before the meal. One of the parties is vegan and we remembered this place. The person got ravioli which was delicious and came w/ 2 big pieces of garlic toast. We...shared an order of samosa appetizer. Only 2 come in each order but each one is quite large and filled w/ delicious filling of potatoes, peas, and spices. It was a little spicy which I love but another person found a little too spicy. The mango sauce it came w/ was also delicious.More

Early well located if you are downtown - this is at 9th and Market. And right across the street from the Bill Graham Civi Center. A very clean and casual all vegetarian restaurant with somewhat of a subtle spiritual vibe. Very good comfort food, delicious...Lhasi and delicious desserts. In addition to an extensive menu there are very interesting daily specials. I'm veggie but my wife is not. Still she loves their "neatloaf" - meatloaf but vegetarian. I generally go for a veggie burger and salad but is all good.More

Thirty-five minutes in, we asked where our rather simple order (veggie curry, salad) was. People who came in later were being served. They started flipping through the orders. We paid for the mango lassi that had been delivered and left.

We enjoyed an excellent vegetarian meal - I had the portobello mushroom quesadilla, and my wife had 5he soup of the day, both with a simple salad. The dishes were delicious. The one detractor: service, while cordial, was very slow.

We are a grown up family of 5 with 1 vegan, the rest of us eat dairy, fish, and increasingly less frequently meat. This (unlicensed) restaurant serves fantastic tasty dishes, big portions, great value. You simply do not need the dairy or meat, we had...a range of vegan and veggie starters & main courses, all great tasting with the textures and variety of good food. Staff very helpful, service super-quick, definitely worth a trip.More
