“Lemongrass heaven!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Love this place. Really tasty food and a full vegetarian menu, to boot! I guess the downsides are atmosphere (kinda stark/diner-esque, with fluorescent lighting) and the service (polite, but often very slow, even with few customers). Hard to find outstanding Vietnamese veggie food, though, so they could probably pelt me with rocks as I was eating and I'd still go back. :)

“Bland at best for this experienced vegetarian.”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

I waited all day for this place to open. Settled for a Mexican place two blocks down because Fresh Mint said they were not going to open for lunch for the month. We were really hankering for a veggie pho on the island, and were in Pai'a for the day. The pho was incredibly bland and not at all plentiful (compare this to Veggie Life in El Monte, CA). Had to dump half the bottle of soy sauce and two heaping scoops of hoisin in before it was palatable. Did not come with beansprouts--instead a plate with scant bits of mint and shredded cabbage were all that was supplied. The summer roll was acceptable, albeit a bit dry. Prices were the highlight of the meal...fair, but not cheap.

I'm impressed by the fact that someone is gutsy enough to open a veggie Viet place on the island, but please represent us vegetarians a bit better! Please don't go out of business...improve!

“Excellent place, best vegetarian food ever”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

I'm no vegetarian, but my girlfriend is and she's been to many vegetarian restaurants and she says this was the best. We had the spring rolls and the soup, the food was delicious. Owned by husband and wife, who personally were there to serve us. Place is very small with plain, limited decor, but the food was extraordinary. For a meat eater like myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They don't have a liquor license, we walked up the street to the liquor store and bought our own bottle of wine and brought it back to have with our dinner.

“Delicous Vegetarian Vietnamese”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Small, friendly service, delicious food. Try the tofu " Fish" Pot. I order spicy for a little extra kick. This is a "mom and pop" place, so don't expect a high end dining experience, but the food is wonderful.

“Tiny Thai”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

If this is the tiny Thai restaurant up Baldwin Avenue on the left... it's a very delicious way to feel local... BYO beer or wine and enjoy this little family run restaurant. It is FRESH.
