I went with my children, 12 and 15, vegetarian and vegan. We are constantly looking for good food without animal products. The wine list was very good. The barbecue-buffalo wings were so wonderful. The menu is vast and perhaps tries to do too many things....More

The food was good, but be prepared for a very American take on Asian food. The sauces were syrupy and sweet, and there is very little spice. Definitely super affordable and the service is really friendly and fast!

Great place with several vegan food options! It can get pricy if you're like us and just have to try several things on the menu. But the food will not disappoint you! The wait to be seated can be trying. I think we waited almost...More

Dear non-vegetarians, do not be afraid of this fabulous vegetarian place. It's super good! I've always thought mock meats were gross, but the "chik'n nuggets" here are insanely delicious. My picky 9-year-old son would never know that these aren't real chicken nuggets. The portion is...More

Get ready to wait around. It was almost a 1.5 hour wait for a table for 2 on a Friday night, and they don’t take reservations. But the menu has so many options it’s hard to pick something. Staff is nice, food was good. Chicken...More

Wow. Holy crap. Their vegan buffalo wings were beyond anything I've ever eaten in my entire life. I've been vegan for over three years and have always missed chicken wings, so I was reasonably excited when I found these on a menu somewhere. And wow....More

The outside doesn't look all that enticing, but the interior is cute and welcoming. They specialize in vegan food that is all done very well. It is similar to the food that it is imitating and very tasty. I recommend for both vegans and non-vegans.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.

Hi! We offer mostly veggie options and can substitute tofu for our mock meat. For example instead of mango chicken we can make you mango tofu. Also, we offer a gluten free soy sauce for the teriyaki or black bean ginger stir... More
