Food well prepared, very clean place, workers friendly. Prices reasonable. Lots of variety on menu. Didn't try their fake "meat"--usually that's what makes or breaks one of these places.

They seem to make all their soups with soy sauce and didn't seem real interested in making their specialties for us without it. They had one or two simple things we could have. Food was decent. Atmosphere was casual.

This newly opened fusion asian vegetarian restaurant in the North Park neighborhood caught my eye while out for a stroll. What a find!!! The menu was much more extensive than I expected. Menus are posted outside to catch your attention. The pastry counter situated in...More

Vegan food with loads of salt. They do give you an enormous glass of water to normalize your salt balance, but the food just tastes of salt.
