Respond to Review of Veggie Garden
by OneNightStanzas

Review: OK, yaknow what? I was going to give this place four stars (the bathrooms are kinda... less than lovely), but now I have seen some of the mean stuff other posters have said (the waiter didn't speak good English? Why should he?! Buy a phrase book!!), I am giving it five. Because you should TOTALLY go to this restaurant! I've now been to Veggie Garden twice, once in 2012 and once in 2013, both around Easter time, and loved it both times. The first time I went for a late dinner with a party of 6 -- we booked in advance and were treated superbly by the lovely staff (their English was FINE, by the way). We ordered lots and lots of food from both menu, a mix of tapas and mains, and it all came swiftly, and with no confusions. It was also all delicious! I don't remember everything I ate but I definitely had the Thali and it was great. This week, my partner and I went back and had an earlier dinner, about 6pm. The restaurant was quiet and there were seats inside and out, we could choose where we wanted to sit, it was very chilled. We both had one of the delicious mixed juices to start with... if you're going, live dangerously and have one of these, because they're amazing! Then we ordered from the tapas menu -- we picked four hot tapes and one cold tapas to share, and were worried we wouldn't have enough food, but we were so wrong! The portions are very generous and super good value. I'd highly recommend the momos, they're delicious. The tofu in satay sauce is also finger-lickingly good. Our waiter was very sweet and attentive. We spoke in Spanglish to him and he was very patient and friendly. We noted that other customers were paying at the till, this is a sensible way of doing things in a busy place with two floors, and the barman who took our payment was also very pleasant and friendly to us. We'll be coming back here again for sure! One of Barcelona's best vegan options :)
