Respond to Review of Ci Yan Vegetarian Health Food
by JacobHicks

Review: We ate here for dinner and, in the end, were very happy! I scoped the place out in the afternoon after reading the other positive reviews on HappyCow and, yes, it is a small menu and very small capacity but this just adds to it's charm. Don't come here to expect 5 star service or any maître d' greeting you and pulling out your chair! The owner curtly asked us to hold on while he served other customers when we first arrived, and then, as he walked back to the kitchen, asked us what we wanted! Think the Seinfeld "Soup Kitchen" chef with a genuine heart of gold and love for vegetarian food. I had the tempeh "Hamburger" which was excellent and my girlfriend had a brown rice and vegetable dish which was a bit bland but okay. We also had the vegan muffins for dessert which were freshly baked and delicious! At $18.50 for our combined meals and drink this is definitely excellent value and I'd highly recommend it to anyone wanting a genuinely unique lunch or dinner. It was like a friends dad cooking up some great vegetarian food while literally watching tv soap operas with his family in a nicely decorated home!
