Respond to Review of CLOSED: Green Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant
by GreggVA

Review: Was on an expedition to do a little shopping at REI and found this place listed on Smiley Moo. It does not actually face Broad Street so finding was a little difficult. The closest cross street is Homeview Drive and it is on the North side of Broad Street. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant was clean and simply decorated. It is a fairly large place so getting seated was not an issue. A fairly large menu with a full array of appetizers, noodle bowls, and main courses. The style is definitely Asian with Vietnamese and Thai flair. We started with some Fresh steamed spring rolls. They were very tasty with considerable amounts of cilantro, tofu, and veggi-ham. My wife ordered the General Tso's and I ordered the Hot Hot Kung Pao "Chicken" dish. They came with rice and you had the option of white or brown, the latter I chose. Service was fairly quick but there were not a whole lot of people when we got there. It was really starting to fill in by the time we left. The food was delicious and I found out why my dish stated "hot" twice. The General Tso's was a mix of protein and broccoli in a spicier brown sauce versus the typical sweeter plum style. Great flavor and well balanced. The Hot Hot Kung Pao was a diced protein, celery, and peanuts in a pleasantly spicy brown sauce. The heat did not take away from the flavor but I went through some water along the way. Total dinner with water was $24.75 + tax. They offer a number of desserts that we did not try this time but I imagine they are great as well. This will become a regular stop for us when we are in the Richmond area!
