“Green Temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Our favorite restaurant in Redondo Beach. The decor and atmosphere are enchanting, the food healthy and delicious, the people friendly and wonderful.

We go there regularly. Our kids took us there some years ago and we've been regulars ever since.

“Serenely green”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Just a few blocks from the beach, in Riviera Village, this is an enchanting respite from the usual loud, plastic places...the Green Temple is serene with it's trickling water fountain, colourfully cushioned seats, and menu full of healthy choices. The staff is friendly, and the food is as tasty as it is healthy. My family has long been fans of the "Wraps" here, but today my daughter and i had the Broccoli Bowl - LOVED it. We always have a good meal and pleasant time here.

“Cramped conscious health food restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

The menu items immediately reminded me of THE SPOT vegetarian restaurant in Hermosa Beach. Apparently there is some connection, but the waiter was vague when asked. The meals were fine but the portions were a bit small. The place is a hole in the wall so adjacent diners' conversations will become part of your elevated consciousness--undoubtedly elevated by the useless Tibetan patterned bench seat cushions no doubt. The cuisine should be what lifts you but mostly it will be your wallet made lighter by this dining experience which SOMEHOW got elevated in the Trip Advisor rankings to #2. Seriously? In all of Redondo Beach--the largest of the South Bay beach cities--this pretentious little place (which doesn't even accept AMEX even though it is in an expensive location and not cheap itself) is number two? Something is vegan fishy.

Composed on iPhone so sorry about any typis:)

“Veg bliss in a great environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This very low-key restaurant consistently delivers excellent food and service with adorable accents. As an omnivore, I am impressed with the many tasty vegetarian options to choose from, all of which leave me full. Everyone's super friendly and there is no "attitude" if you are not a vegetarian, so just let the good food and chillness wash over you and let the conversion begin. :)
