Excellent ambience, service, style, selection, and very delicious food! I loved the entire experience from the Jasmine tea (delicately soothing) to the outstandingly creative dessert - a 3-berry slice of heaven "Rainbow in the Sky"! Entire menu was totally wholesome and healthy too!

I have been to many vegan restaurants and Vietnamese restaurants. And this one wins. The have meat and when you eat it you don't even know it is vegan. My recommendations are the pho and egg rolls. Definitely coming here again.

All the "meat and fish" menu items listed are not actually chicken,beef, shrimp, fish, etc. as described. Since I have been a vegetarian for 27 years I could not tell if it was real meat or not; however, my carnivore friends had a difficult time...More

Vegan? This good? SERIOUSLY?!?! Oh my goodness, you will not believe the flavors these folks bring to a plate of raw, vegan cuisine. If you're vegetarian, vegan, paleo, dairy-free, or gluten-free, you will be in heaven. If you're a carnivore, I promise ... you won't...More

Here at Au Lac the compassion manifests itself in the attention to detail that goes into every dish we want to cultivate an atmosphere where people come together to create a center of gravity pulsating with love, harmony, and health. We opened our doors in 1996 and introduced our Vegan RAW cuisine in 2001. The concept of the restaurant is we honor the arrival of every guest, treat each as our friend to honor the humanese concept, and anyone representing Au Lac is eager to present the two kitchens and have a chance to serve a delicious meal. It's a unique meal in that there are only plant-based, unprocessed and organic ingredients. Vegan-Living is our style of dining but also a lifestyle you can feel.
