“Wonderful!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

As a vegan on vacation in Old Orchard Beach, this place was a lifesaver! The most amazing vegan friendly restaurant and I enjoyed all the items we ordered. The Asian Stir-Fry was very good. The best menu item was ordered by one of our friends, Tofu Tikka Masala! We also ordered the Thai Ginger Noodle. For appetizers we did the crispy wontons, yum, and the vegeterian spring rolls. The service was amazing. We went Friday afternoon at opening and by the time we left there wasn't an empty table in the place. Will definitely be back next year on our annual trip to OOB. already looking forward to it.

“Yes please”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

No reservations. . Lines were around the block...we were given a pager and told our wait would be about 45 minutes. We went across the street and had drinks..sure enough, 45 minutes later, our pager vegan to blink. Our server was friendly, funny and delightful. Excellent flavors. Food combinations were tasty and interesting. Food came out of the kitchen fast! Throughout our meal, there was a line around the corner. Well worth the wait!

“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This place was great! We ordered the Tofu Tikka Masala and Cauliflower special, good portions for the price and both were delicious!! Nice flavors but not overpowering, not very spicy. The whole menu was vegan friendly. Service was nice and friendly. I ordered the tutti frutti tea and I wasn't that impressed but otherwise I would highly recommend this place.

“Truly Delicious”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

My partner and I ordered the Tikka Masala and Peanut Curry, and they were both wonderful. The flavors were both bold and complex. The service was very friendly, and the decor was very appealing, if a bit tight. It was a great meal, and I would not hesitate to go back if I am ever in Portland again.

“Dismayed!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We have heard so many wonderful things about this restaurant. But last evening we took two friends who are vegetarians to this restaurant and were very disappointed. The service was fine, the wine was good, but the food was less than mediocre.
