Came here following a recommendation from a friend. He said it was his favourite. Interesting layout with multiple levels and pretty decor. We enjoyed a most memorable and delicious meal. I had lentil and tofu cakes and dumplings. Really worth a visit.

I'm not really too much in vegan food but why not - actually I did not really miss anything at this place. We went here for a very casual business dinner before meeting with a customer the next day. One of us was vegetarian that's why we ended up in this place. Actually I was here the second time after... More

Outstanding! We started with a couple of sushi rolls which were great but the corn pancakes were amazing. The entrees were terrific as well. We will certainly be back.

Food and service were spot on, I am not Vegan but after seeing the menu I booked as my daughter is, I was looking forward to going as the menu looked so good, it didn't disappoint and would have gone to eat there more but wanted to experience different places to eat.

Nice interior, friendly staff, good food. It was crowded when we popped by, but they found us a place anyway! You can place your order fast and the food is just around the corner. We liked it a lot.

Low lighting, fairly quiet place on several levels is a great choice for mid town eating! Tables are close together, so it is a little hard to have quiet conversation, but for really good vegan dishes this is the place. Fried foods are crisp and not greasy! Sushi choices are plenty and beautifully served with very fresh wasabi and ginger.

This restaurant is reasonably priced, has good service, with delicious spicy food. Next time however I will definitely try the Peking buns, and would not recommend the wontons as the texture of the 'fake meat' inside was a bit claggy. The main meals however were fantastic.

Had dinner here on a Fri night with my sister, who is a strict vegan (I eat anything). What a fantastic place! First, the space is cool -- 3 open floors, like a loft. Modern, asian vibe. It was crowded (glad we made a reservation) but service was good. And the food -- oh my! I've eaten at vegan restaurants... More

We tried the trio tapas plate and Singapore noodles - there were no stand-out dishes and everything tasted "like vegan" food in that there were rubbery pieces of protein and flat, tough parts creating an odd texture. The noodles were slightly overcooked and has nothing beyond some Indian curry powder (the "lobster" was nowhere to be seen). The plum tea... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
