I recently dined with a friend at this establishment for lunch. The waitress was very nice, and attentive. The dish i selected was an Asian stir fry of vegetables and soy meat and some marinated tofu. with level 3 spiciness (on a scale of 1-4). It was cooked perfectly and was just the right level of heat! The price was right too! and the atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody that likes Asian cuisine and is a vegetarian or vegan. I am a guy that loves a big piece of steak for dinner or bacon/sausage with breakfast but the soy meat in this dish was very good and had the texture of meat and was quite filling! The only issue I have with this place, is they are closed on Mondays, and they have strange hours. They close at 2pm and re-open again at 5 for supper. Other than that it's a great place!

Really great to find a high quality vegan/vegetarian restaurant as opposed to a take-out or cafe. Thai and Malaysian food, well produced and tasty, though a shame not to have some other non-Asian dishes on the menu. The vegan chocolate orange mousse pie was excellent, and the Peeper beer good too. We arrived at 6.30 and the place was already packed but they gave us a beeper and we were called back after 15 minutes to get a table.

So impressed by the service. food was phenomenal - from appetizer to dessert. great atmosphere, waitresses were beyond helpful, entre of Far East duck was very good, dessert of orange chocolate mousse was to die for, appetizer of crispy wonton was tres impressive. Server also recommended a local beer that did not disappoint. i hope to return asap.
