Ultimate Guide Reviews
Garden Fresh Amazing and addictively delicious. The only downside is that their most delicious dishes, like General's (non-)Chicken, have got to be heart-stoppingly unhealthy from the fried fake meat. But, it's the best veg chinese food I've had. After the first time I had it, I woke up dreaming about it! The staff at this restaurant is really sweet, too. 5 stars 2008-02-18
All about Herbs @ Paris Cafe Incredible food! Vegan Thai that has no grease, very very fresh tasting. I wish I could eat here every day. All my friends I've taken here, both veg and non-veg, have been crazy about it too. It's pretty much failsafe. Also, the space is cute, the little lady who serves is cute, and almost everything is under $10. Tip: Lemongrass tea tastes just like FruitLoops. 5 stars 2008-02-18
Axum Cafe Food is pretty un-fantastic. Veggies seemed like they were pre-cut frozen ones, the potatoes were so undercooked they were hard, the injera break tasted stale, and the place is really dirty. I have no idea how this place gets good reviews! 2 stars 2008-02-18
Burma Super Star The food is unique and delicious; I'd recommend the tea leaf salad. The wait is ridiculously long-- I waited 2.5 hours -- luckily there's an awesome bookstore down the street, and the restaurant will call your phone when you're getting close to getting seated. BUT the food also seemed to make me sick that night and after I ate the leftovers (on faith!) the day after. My friend was fine, though. Hm 4 stars 2008-02-18
Cha-Ya I'm not into sushi (and barely into Japanese food), but I like this place because they have tons of other Japanese options, like noodle dishes. And of course, it's all vegan. All my friends, veg and non, have loved it. The wait can be quite long because the space is small, but it'll probably be worth it. 4 stars 2008-02-18
Club Waziema The place is cute and probably the strangest venue for Ethiopian food-- it's a bar. A tavern. Sports on TV, classic rock on the jukebox, dimly lit. The food is good for the pathetic bay area options... injera can be hit-or-miss; veggie combo options are decent but not overwhelmingly compelling. The website says they have food nightly, but I went once on a weekend & was told they don't serve then. 4 stars 2008-02-18
Dosa Not terrible but not memorable at all either, and really overpriced for that kind of forgettable experience. Maybe a good indian place for people who don't usually like indian food. 3 stars 2008-02-18
Golden Era I've been twice, and food has been ok but not fantastic. I guess the only draw is that it's all vegetarian Chinese food, so quite a novelty. I'll go back probably because it's close to where I live and decent for staving off a sweet-and-sour craving. But, if you can get out of the city, I highly recommend trying the incredible Garden Fresh chinese veg place in Mountain View instead. 3 stars 2008-02-18
MaggieMudd Super exciting for the vegan! They don't have all their vegan flavors available at a time, but they have enough (maybe 10-15 both times I've been). Their shakes are huge and creative. Vegan marshmallow sauce, too! 5 stars 2008-02-18
Millennium This is the best restaurant ever. Even non-veg culinary snobs I know have loved it, you can really take anyone there (as long as they can afford it, I guess). Honestly, though, it's not that expensive for this town, esp if you're just getting an entree yourself, it's about $25. And it is totally worth it. Incredibly delicious and creative. The waiters are v. knowledgeable, good w/recommendations. 5 stars 2008-02-18
Naan 'n Curry Harshly overspiced Indian fast food. So the positive points are that it's cheap and fast. However, I'd rather have a Luna bar if I'm that desperate, and wait to go to a good Indian place to eat. 2 stars 2008-02-18
Nook Cafe Not very many vegan options, the usual small # of veg choices (ex: cheese platter, cream-based soup, pastries, overpriced veg sandwich). Not recommended if you're actually hungry or looking for a meal. But on the plus side, it's small, cute, personable (not necessarily the counter staff, just the atmosphere)-- a good place to read or work for hours with a mug of tea. 3.5 stars 2008-02-18
Samovar Tea Lounge The place looks very nice and has good service. The combinations it has are cool in that they have maybe 3 small dishes of a specific cuisine, served with a matching tea. However, the food itself is unfortunately mediocre and not worth going for at any price, much less the relatively high ones they charge. Good for people more into looks than taste. Not good for a food lover or tea lover. 3.5 stars 2008-02-18
Taste of the Himalayas Not wildly delicious, but good. I wouldn't seek this place out, but I would eat there if I were nearby (other veg choices around there are apparently nonexistent). I went for the lunch buffet, which had 2 or 3 vegan dishes, all decent, nothing to write home about. Kathmandu Cafe in Western Addition is far more delicious and compelling if you're looking for this cuisine. 3 stars 2008-02-18
Weird Fish I love this place! It's nice to go somewhere with non-veg friends and be able to eat the same artery-clogging battered & fried items they are. There are even 2 different types, tofu and seitan! And then vegan cake for dessert! Or, you can get the delicious edamame & buckwheat noodle salad if you're into health. The space is super cute, and the nice & funny owner is often there. A favorite. 5 stars 2008-02-18
