Respond to Review of Cafe 668 Vegetarian Restaurant
by melskunk

Review: I was taken here on a date and was pleasantly surprised by the decor of the room, but worried as I was told the place was good value, but it definitely looked like it was aiming for a higher price bracket. My date had gone here at the old place and I believe they were surprised as well. The server was very hard to get the attention of, which was a little much given there were only two other tables when we arrived, and everything had to be flagged down. We ended up chasing him down for a bill, and I really felt like he'd rather hide than serve table. The vegetarian cuisine was okay, but nothing outstanding, and didn't seem worth the price that was being charged. The spring rolls were small and expensive ($4.50 for two)!!, and we got that and the taro rolls (these at least were good), and by that point had spent over $10 just on starters. I ended up paying twice as much as I am used to for this style of cuisine, and I can only assume it's to pay for the lovely stone wall. As previously noted, the meat substitutes aren't very good, I wasn't happy with them, after being spoiled by Graceful Vegetarian and other Chinese Buddhist places. I'd avoid it myself but it takes up a good chunk of the menu, be warned. Except for the service, I'd call this a good date place, since it looks GREAT and the food is nice enough. It's not expensive but neither is it a great value. If you aren't trying to impress someone(like a non-vegetarian friend, an out-of-towner, a girlfriend), then I'd stick to someplace cheaper, of which there are more than a few in the city, and suck up poorer ambience for it. And don't get fake meat.
