Review: This place is totally disgusting. Me and my girlfriend are vegans and we use to go there serveral times a week UNTIL...
My girlfriend found a huge grub like worm in her rice. I picked similar things out of my rice in the past not knowing what they were but this was clearly a worm. I asked the waiter and he told me that they regularly pick bugs out of their rice before cooking it. My girlfriend threw up on the spot. I went into the kitchen to talk with the staff and they gave me the emtpy bag of rice. I was so close to filing a lawsuit.
Look at their Phila Dept of Health Restaurant Inpsection results here:
BUGS IN YOUR FOOD IS NOT VEGETARIAN NOR IS IT KOSHER FOR JEWS
THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST PLACE CLAIMING TO BE VEG. IN THE CITY. ITS A SHAME SO MANY PEOPLE SUPPORT IT.
This guy is just a jerk. This place is very clean, the staff is friendly, and the food is great. I went to that health inspection link and the only violation was for something minor and certainly not out of the ordinary. This is a good place to eat, don't let the views of a germaphobe asshole scare you. There are no worms in the rice, trust me.
I agree, not a very nice guy at all. no need to slam a place for one bad happening. We've been going to New Harmony for a while now and Hiro and his staff are very friendly and All of our meals have been delicious. disregard this misrable man's review
Please do not stop supporting a local business like New Harmony because of Kevin's review. It's coming from a person who purchased a designer dog from a breeder but thinks it's ethical to slam a restaurant serving the vegan community. Many restaurants have bug and mouse infestations, and it's absurd to think otherwise. Please support this family-run local business.
New Harmony is one of the best vegan restaurants in Philadelphia with great service and delicious food. Don't let some jaded person's silly review stop you from enjoying one of the gems of Philly. Say hi to Ming (the owner) when you go- he's one of the nicest people, and he's doing great things with the restaurant, including amazing customer service as well as consistently trying out new dishes and expanding the menu. 5 stars
