Amazing food and caring service

4 Posted on 07 / 18 / 2014

About a year ago stumbled across this plaace after finishing a Half Marathon. After 13.1 miles, most anything tastes like the best meal ever. That time I enjoyed spring rolls followed by some of the HUGE vegan bowl of rice noodle soup overflowing with chunks of fresh veggies. This week brought my wife for a quiet pre-theatre lunch. Both were bowled over by the attentiveness of all the wait-staff and by the super-tasty vegan dishes. Our black soybean tofu with mixed veggies and an upgrade to a side of mixed brown and wild rice came first. The flat rice bun stuffed with wood ear mushroom and then topped with steamed tofu was original and awesome! Pot of jasmine tea was lovely to share, too. Definitely coming back ... is our next trip to the theatre in mess than a week too soon? Maybe not!!! Four nearby restaurants were nearly empty. Hmmm? Me thinks the locals are on to something, as this place was packed by the end of weekday lunch.

Pros: Originality of food, Fancy and tasty, Attentive servers not thrown off vegans
Cons: By the end of lunch the place was packed

I've brought multiple groups of guests to Goji because they have a great variety to serve most everyone.

My favorite vegan dish is the tofu lemongrass bun (soft noodles) -- be sure to ask for your tofu to be steamed instead of fried, because they fry meat on the same grill. I also love the woodear mushroom dumplings (I forget their actual name, but it's an interesting vegan appetizer). The pho, of course, is also a good vegan option.

This place can get crowded --I usually prefer to go for lunch, but I recommend reservations. Sometimes there's still a short wait. Still, the staff is pleasant, despite being busy. I find the knowledge of veganism to be hit or miss, so just explain to be on the safe side...although the menu is pretty clearly labeled.

Bottom line: I recommend it!

Pros: great food, vegan-friendly, across the street from vegan-friendly market!
Cons: a little pricey, can be busy, knowledge of staff is hit or miss

Great Food, Lots of Selections

We are always looking for Asian restaurants that use organic ingredients and are tuned into the requirements of Vegans. Although not totally organic they do use some organic produce and they have some totally vegan and gluten-free items. We go there about once a month with my wife's parents and sister and have never been disappointed.

Just so-so

Not overly impressed...there were vegan options but the servers were not overly concerned with insuring you recieved what you asked for. I ordered the tofu pot which was ok but also ordered the veggie fried rice and despite informing the server that I wanted to make sure everything I order was vegan, the rice was served with egg in it...the description on the menu did not include egg. The sauces on the table were not labled and the soy sauce closely resembled the fish sauce..wouldn't have known the difference without asking. Also, the portions were outragous...we were just visiting the area and were unable to take leftovers home...what could have fed at least 4 more people had to be thrown out.

Pros: vegan options
Cons: wasteful portions, careless servers

Amazing food with no dairy contamination problems- my guy has serious sensitivity and he's never gotten sick here. The specials braised eggplant and crispy tofu are fabulous. Love the tofu clay pot. all around spectacular and one of my favorite eateries.

Pros: Tasty, Great atmosphere, Very easy to substitute- flexible
Cons: Can be pricey?, Only one location, Busy on a weekend night
