Review: What luck! I happened to discover this absolute gem one day after it opened. Went in, ordered the lemongrass veggie chicken and was immediately hooked! Let me put it this way - this restaurant has been open for one month and my family has already dined there probably 8 times. It does help that it's in our neighbourhood - but it also helps that the food is very reasonably priced and there is a very wide variety of choices on the menu. For instance, one evening I ordered a (vegan!!!) Philly Cheesesteak sandwich while my daughter ordered a Supreme Burrito and my husband had a vegan Pho soup. The menu also has such traditional fare as spaghetti with veggie "meat sauce", veggie burgers and much more. The lemongrass is the best though :). If you're in the neighbourhood at lunch time they also have lunch specials that are SUPER cheap. My 8 year old daughter has proclaimed it her favourite restaurant already. Almost everything on the menu is completely vegan (even the whipped cream on their AMAZING desserts - did I mention that I ordered my husband's birthday cake from here as well). The few items (and I mean few) that are not vegan are indicated on the menu. The staff is super friendly and eager to please. They can get the orders a little mixed up from time to time but one must remember it's a new place and growing pains are inevitable. The only sort of "weird-ish" thing here are the books, artwork and constant streaming video of the "Supreme Master". I get the impression that the restaurant is run by a religious group following a woman by the name of Supreme Master Ching Hai (look her up on wikipedia). The messages on the video (regarding the ethics of going meatless, saving the planet from global warming, humanitarian efforts) all seem positive though so it's not offputting or offensive...just a little different (we're not religious). Honestly, they could be showing anything and I would still eat there (okay, in some cases I might switch to take out!) The food is that good!!
