I've returned since they've reclassified themselves as vegetarian instead of vegan.
The Clay Pot "fish" and vegetable fried rice are both very tasty. I especially love the flavors of the Clay Pot soy fish dish. This may be my favorite dish. The vegetable fried rice comes with a veggie beef, but for a couple more bucks you can add veggie chicken as well.
I agree with the person who said the Imperial Rolls were different. They no longer taste fresh. I agree that they are probably pre-made, frozen, and re-heated, and the quality suffers greatly due to this. I was so put off by the stale taste that I ended up throwing them away.
I ordered a side of roasted potatoes, which has an excellent flavor. However, I only got 10 little smaller-than-a-tater-tot pieces of potato for $4. With that portion, this side dish shouldn't exceed $2.
They loss an extra cow due to the poor service. They had a teenager, who I believe may be the owner's son, manning the register and taking the to-go orders. He was a rude kid with much attitude and a condescending demeanor. It was very hard to hold my tongue. If they know what's best for business, they'd remove him from the front and add someone with personality and customer service skills.
They need add more vegan dessert options. It isn't hard to find great tasting vegan cakes in the valley, so I do not understand why they're jeopardizing being a 100% vegan eatery solely based on non-vegan desserts.

I have visited twice and ordered the Kung Pao & Black Pepper Steak specials, and the Imperial Rolls. Everything was delicious. I loved the spices, flavor, & the preparation. They even included steamed veggies. There is enough food in each entree to either feed 2 people or last 1 person 2 days.
However, when I asked about their desert I was told that the tapioca was vegan, but the chocolate & carrots cakes may not be. She said that they come from an outside vendor so she wasn't sure.
Well, my thoughts are that if you are branding your establishment as 100% vegan, then everything you sell darn well should be.
Cons: skimpy portioned roasted potatoes side order, needs more vegan desserts
