“Fantastic flavorful vegan food”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

Don't be put off by the unimpressive exterior (or, for the vegans, the window full of meat at the restaurant next door). The food is outstanding - the chef creates many of the vegan replicas of meat in some of the dishes himself. Everything I have tried from the comprehensive menu has been delicious. My husband and I order extra entrees to take home. Even my meat eating friends are excitedto take their leftovers. Wonderful food, friendly waitstaff. Great restaurant.

“Oily and bland.”
Reviewed 9 May 2011

This was one of the worst meals I have had while in Portland. The atmosphere feels like a hospital cafe which didn't help, but the food was terrible. We ordered the veggie spring rolls, fried won-tons and the kung pao chicken. The spring rolls were tiny and tasteless, the fried won-ton were actually greasy won-ton wrappers completely lacking a filling and the kung pow chicken consisted of oily puffs of soy packing peanuts. The service was really good, but pointless if the food is such mess.

“My Favorite Restaurant in Portland! Amazing food & service!”
Reviewed 7 September 2010

Have been going here for years & never been disappointed! Best Asian food anywhere, and it's all gloriously vegetarian! No choosing from a couple meager veg options, they're ALL vegetarian!! The meat substitutes are delicious and convincing, even my friends and family (including my meat-loving parents) all love eating here and we return every time they're in town! Not one of the numerous people (all meat-eaters) I've taken here has ever been disappointed! I return almost weekly, and i love that it's locally & privately owned by friendly folks who genuinely enjoy sharing their delicious food! Super-cheap all-you-can-eat weekday lunch buffett, but still the food is amazing! Sweet-and-sour chicken, beef and brocolli, General Tso's chicken, cashew chicken, and incredible chicken & green salad are some of my & friends' favorites!!
