This restaurant serves good meat alternatives (tempeh, etc.) that are amazingly realistic if you really like the texture of chicken, for example. The "fake chicken" is terrific, while the beef is less so -- takes somewhat like the chicken. The seafood is REAL. Prices are reasonable ($$) and it is definitely a family Chinese restaurant. They put vegetables in dishes, including the Kung Pao dishes, and, in a radio program, the owner said that they concentrate on organic and fresh. Food is tasty!

Just stopped in to try this place a couple of days ago. A 'vegetarian' Chinese food place sounded interesting to me... In general, the food is good and the service is really great but just know what you're ordering before you do. We ordered this green bean ball soup that was... strong in taste. I guess we just weren't expecting that flavor. But I suppose that's really on us for ordering something we had no idea about.

This is at the top of my favorite cheap eats list. Some of the ersatz meat preparations are a bit strange (but also can be fun). Skip the seafood and go for the vegetarian selections. Moo shoo vegetable (get 6 pancakes) and potstickers are standouts.

I have loved this restaurant for ten years. They make THE BEST fake meat (the Szechuan "chicken" is my favorite). The food comes out so fast, it's always consistent & delicious, and the people who work there are nice. My only complaint is that they don't deliver--I would order SO OFTEN if delivery were an option!
