Review: I have lived in southern California for a couple of years now, and was aware of this restaurant in the less than attractive plaza by the West Covina Mall. My husband offered to take me there to try it a few times, but I opted not to a few time because I was afraid it wouldn't be very good based on the location alone. About a a couple of months ago after I went full vegan, I agreed to try out One World. I wish so badly I had tried it earlier. By far the most tasty vegan/vegetarian restaurant I have ever tried. The staff as a whole are very friendly, and have a great knowledge of what is good to try, and what to look out for when it comes to particular palets. The first dish I tried was a signature house dish called Mama's Love. It really does taste like a home-cooked meal. I've tasted some bite of the Rainbow Rice (a much tastier version of good-old chinese fried rice), Chow Mein, and the simply delectable Indian Curry. I am a bit particular when it comes to only some of the vinaigrette based sauces that are offered with some Vietnamese dishes. I had tried a Vietnamese noodle bowl with bean sprouts, peanuts with meatless egg-rolls. If it weren't for the vinaigrette, this dish would have been just as tasty as the others I've tried. I am not too impressed with the drinks. I settle for hot green tea during lunchtime. The lemonade is way too sweet for my liking. The raspberry iced like tea is tolerable. Try the berry marbled cheesecake. By far tastier than any other cheescake I have tried (even Junior's). Again, the service is good as a whole and pretty friendly. There are some servers that lack in asking if we would like napkins or fail to provide silverware. A few weeks ago, my husband and I were served by a young lady who had a South African accent. While serving us, she forgot my appetizer, listened with half interest when I gave her my order, and what annoyed me the most was that she kept asking my husband questions about the shirt he was wearing and at one point walked behind him, stared down at him and reached down behind his back to touch him. She was staring at him the entire time we ate. I am figuring she probably thought we were related, but even still I thought this to be very unprofessional. I didn't even bother to ask her for the appetizer, because I wanted out of there so fast. The Asian woman is the friendliest and most attentive server. Lunch specials are great...and all of the soups are superb! Again it's a wonderful place to dine otherwise
