We came here on the weekend and I'm glad we came a little bit earlier so we missed the long line. They accept coupons for discounts, use your phone to save paper. Always have a big array of soup, salad, freshly baked bread, gluten free too at that. They have all kinds of beverage including strawberry lemonade. There's always a... More

This is a very popular restaurant - probably because it's all you can eat. People pile their plates high with salad and veggies and bowls of soup! As you walk in there are three prepared salads and then four bins of greens and (I counted) 22 fresh ingredients to top your salad! Among the salad toppings, you could find two... More

If this is the first Souplantation that i wish, i would never go back or try any other Souplantation again because the food in this location is crappy and cold. Besides that, the staff is pretty lazy, and never came to clean up our plates after we are done or when our table is stacked with dirty plates and bowls.

Loads of food if you are a large eater, the Salads many combo of those you can make of every style, Soups are good and you can try many, along with the tons of other items available here. you will not walk out hungry, as we have tried many Locations and walked out very full.

Most buffet style places are disturblingly gross...bits of food from one section always seem to migrate to all the other food containers. This Souplantation stays neat and tidy and rarely runs out of anything. My whole family of vegetarians love it. The staff is always friendly and the food tasty and fresh.

Souplantation in Torrance is just in front of Del Amo mall, and has a lot of parking around to host a friendly meal with friends or family or for every occasion. Choice of salad is standard but great, much more than what you can have home. There is a wide choice of sides, from soup to pasta, to focaccia and... More

This restaurant was clean, well lit with a relatively friendly staff, especially the young lady who brought us more beverages and cleared our table periodically. As always their is an amazing array of vegetables for the actual salad bar, but it's lacking any meats, of either turkey, chicken or ham or chopped bacon bits. The salad dressing seemed too thin...

I worked here when it opened in August 1989. It has changed a lot. Some for the better, so not so much. There is always something for everyone and all you care to eat. There were areas that need to be cleaned but food is consistent.
