I'm not a vegetarian, but I love this restaurant. The vibe is super chill, the food is delicious...you have to try the Yoga Bowl, the Vegetarian Reuben and their "Neatloaf" with mashed potatoes and gravy. Most of the options can be prepared gluten free and vegan. The staff is always gracious, very casual environment with a peaceful charm. I could... More

This place is exactly the kind of spot that non-vegans think vegans eat at. Yogi mantras painted on the walls, servers who treat you as a friendly traveller along their path, and were there on a night that had a live duo playing flute & guitar yogi spiritual music. I was sold before I even saw the menu! Speaking of... More

I've been coming to Jyoti Bihanga for over 20 years and it never disappoints. The food is so healthy and yummy and makes you feel renewed and happy by the time you leave. I go here when I need a boost to my immune system too. The salads are amazing, with lemon tahini dressing and my favorite is the neat... More

Very good food. Service was interesting.The neatloaf was delicious. I would like to try some other items on my next visit. My 6 year old nephew was with us & ordering for him was tricky because they weren't interested in modifying the menu items to suit his tastes. (We wanted to order several side dishes for him rather than an... More

My first visit to this restaurant but it won't be my last. Extensive vegetarian menu with options for vegan and gluten free. I had the curry of the day....totally yummy curry served with brown rice. My friend, who is gluten intolerant, had the gluten free option of their famous "neatloaf"...a plate of pure comfort food, replete with mashed potatoes and... More

The menu is varied and very inventive, intersecting eastern cuisines with old world tastes, all in an exquisitely vegetarian, unique style. You can read books of Sri Chinmoy while dining in a very relaxing, quite space
