4.5 out of 5 stars Very nice wait staff who helped set up tables to our specifications for a large group. Best pad Thai I think I've ever had. Pancakes appetizer too oily but most ordered looked good. LHLisavegan

4 out of 5 stars I was really enjoying New World (typically there once a month) until my visit earlier this month... they served rice that tasted like I always imagined cardboard would. It was awful. How can an asian restaurant ruin rice?! I was with friends so didn't want to hassle with sending it back. Aside from that isolated experience, typically I enjoy the food, well-seasoned. Usually good sized portions. tammy

5 out of 5 stars Still at the top of my list for vegan cuisine in the East Bay. I had the tofu ranchero stir fry with black beans, rice, salsa fresca, guacamole, and warm tortillas. One of the East Bay's finest vegan restaurants, with delicious creative dishes, tall ceilings and a spacious attractive dining area & friendly service. Owners committed to veganism for animals, health, and environment. Great place. Vegan Living

5 out of 5 stars A very nice vegan restaurant (and affordable!). The deco is pretty modern (quite and spacious). The food is very delicious. My favorite dish is the Spicy Thai Fish (SUPER tasty). It has two choices of noodle soups and they are all great. I usually order Lilly Rolls for the appetizers. It’s warm and non-fried. You cannot miss this appetizer. Seeing believing. Just go and try it. peace414

5 out of 5 stars Had a faux chicken burrito here yesterday and it was great comfort food. It's not cheap, but it's not really expensive either and you've got to pay for quality and variety. Open minded omnivore friends of mine have been happy here too, because the food is very filling and familiar (but more characterful than Herbivore) and there are good desserts too! Did I mention it's just 4 blocks from BART? greg
