On the better side of average for Vegan Chinese
Posted on 11 / 10 / 2010
I have eaten at Vegetarian House a couple of times now and while I enjoyed doing so, I am also in no rush to return.
The service has always been friendly and prompt. The space is right downtown by the "China-town" main gate and is well-lit with almost always available. The food is good though pretty much of exactly the same greasy and heavily sauced variety that you are likely to find at the majority of vegan chinese places. I find the prices to be on the high side for the quantity and quality of the food.
Overall: good, just nothing to write home about. I'd say to check Vegetarian House out if you are fond of this style of place or if you are already going to be in the area.
Otherwise, skip it! This is Portland and there are so many better vegan/vegan-friendly options nearby plus so many better vegan/vegan-friendly Chinese and Asian places around town that you don't need to settle for this place.
Ps. In a standard "China-town" type fact-of-life you have to walk right past charred animal carcasses hanging in the window of the non-veg place next door to get to Vegetarian House so be prepared for that. :(
Friendly service, Central downtown location, All Vegan
Pricey for what you get, Standard Vegan Chinese, Carcasses in the window next door
