Respond to Review of Gobo - West Village
Review: We went to Gobo on Saturday for lunch. We ordered the green tea noodles with broccoli + smoked Beijing-style seitan and also also the tender sliced seitan in ginger marinade with asian kale, squash, brown rice. The green tea noodle dish was good -- but for the $10 price tag, the portion wasn't substantial enough. The sliced seitan dish was disappointing. It was pretty bland and, again, the portion was very small for $11. We were amused by the restaurant's motto of: "Food for the five senses: taste - touch - see - hear - smell." The only thing we could "hear" was the loud juice/smoothie blender (which is right out in the open next to the dining area) grinding away during our meal. It was so noisy that we had a hard time having a normal conversation without shouting a bit. I'm glad that we came at lunchtime when the prices are most reasonable. If we had come at dinner time when the prices go up to $15 and up per dish, we would have been pretty bummed out. Oh, and we finished off our meal with the gingerbread and vanilla ice cream topped with spiced berry compote. The menu was misleading... It wasn't gingerbread... It was a small gingerbread *cookie* topped with vegan frozen ice cream.
