Nice little restaurant, with a menu that has photos of the dishes. Lots of meat substitutes and salads and an extensive dessert menu. The Tarator soup was excellent, at least the vegetarian version, and the teriyaki seitan was very realistic. Unfortunately, it was a bit more expensive than average, especially the drinks.

This restaurant is part of the Sri Chinmoy mission, and like all other such restaurants around the world, including the ISKCON restaurants, they are generally devoid of flavor. The main reason is because they do not believe in using onion and garlic in their cooking. Cooking vegetarian food without onion and garlic is close to impossible.

The restaurant is located in an inside street in a scruffy neighborhood where you will not want to linger around. Fortunately they are not open in the evenings. Choices are many, the menu is in English, and they speak English. But the food is seriously lacking in flavor. As I have said many times on this site, it is not enough to be just vegetarian. That will get you 3 stars to start with, beyond that it depends on the food. To be fair, it is also not fair to judge any restaurant based on just one meal.
