Respond to Review of Happy Veggie Garden
Review: I had read about this place on happycow, and have eaten here many times. Was just here again for lunch, February 2012. Here's my Happy Veggie Garden review. This pure vegetarian restaurant opened back in the summer of 2006 and has since established a regular following. The chef and some crew came from the long-time operating Happy Family Veg Restaurant that's also located in Rowland Heights. My family and I like to come here for the bargain lunch specials where each entree costs between $5-7 and includes a main dish, rice or fried bread, soup, and hot tea. The food is made-to-order and served hot. Lots of flavors and lots of choices including mockmeats, tofu, and veggies. It gets really busy and noisy on weekends so come early around 11am if possible. Weekdays are no problem, and the service is quick and courteous. Dinner menu is also extensive, prices moderate between $8-14 per main entree. I recommend: Tofu and basil in hot pot, Buddha's feast (stir fry veggies), steamed dumplings, crispy fish with sesame (don't worry, it's mock fish), and sweet & sour taro ribs. The only complaints I have is that the food is typically very saucy (too much for me) and often contains sugar and salt, so I would suggest ordering some light vegetable dishes to balance out the meal. Anyhow, this is a great place to come once in a while, especially when you are in the area.
