My experience of Vegan good in the UK is very much rooted in the 1970s; seeds and but loafs. There are a few places near me in Manchester that don't adhere to this stereotype but on the whole, vegan food in the UK is not great. You may be Vegan because of an allergy to something, such as cow's milk,... More

Every morsel that was eaten at this restaurant was superb. When we first entered I was concerned about the service because there was only one server. However, the restaurant is small and she did her job with amazing efficiency and speed. Memorably wonderful!

Service is good, but the food is much better, I'm vegetarian for over 20 years and this place is excellent, very nice and comforting.

This is a pleasant and clean vegetarian restaurant with friendly, efficient staff. We enjoyed our first dinner so much that we went back a second night on a recent stay in San Francisco. We ordered fresh salad rolls both times as the peanut sauce was so good. We also ordered pumpkin curry both times. We had never had it before... More

We have been going here with coworkers. It is great place, especially if you have vegetarian friends. I am a big meat eater so fake meat doesn't usually taste good to me but this place make it taste like meat.

This was another restaurant in which we had dinner and it was really very good. We had an appetizer and a main course which was plenty since the portions are pretty large. Great Atmosphere Great Food

Been twice while attending events in the Civic Center area. Really like the food and atmosphere of this little place --enough to take the time for a review/recommendation! Nice presentations of flavorful food. Note that I not a vegetarian, liking all kinds of food (including lots of vegetables) so my review isn't from that angle; but this place would likely... More
