Respond to Review of CLOSED: Happy Buddha
Review: It's surprising to find this vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant tucked away on Northwest Highway in Barrington. My husband, 2 year old daughter and I (all vegetarian) live in Chicago and were visiting my mom, who lives in the area, and we're so glad we did! In fact, I wish they were downtown so we could go more often. The staff are super friendly and the food is very good. I especially recommend the egg rolls, the hot and sour soup (a bit spicy), curry fried rice, and the fried noodle dishes (combination and chicken ones were both good). The pho was also good (better than some I had in Hanoi) though it's not quite as flavorful as the pho from Lan Cafe, our favorite vegan Vietnamese place in NYC. Overall, a really good find. We'll be back!
