I was recommended this place by pretty much every vegan I know in this city upon moving here, and we got to check it out the other night. We went on a weekday around 6:30 and had no trouble getting a table right away. They have a lot of take-away business at that time.
I stayed away from the mock meats due to the warning on happy cow that they contain whey, but still had plenty to choose from, as fresh or fried tofu is option on all entrees.
We had spring rolls, and my veg bf ordered the Ginger Eaters with faux chicken. I tasted the sauce, and it was good. A savory, meatier tasting dark sauce. I had the eggplant curry with fried tofu and brown rice, which I thought was excellent. The free dessert was vegan, which was a nice bonus. Rice, sugar, coconut milk, and a few corn kernels.
The service was very attentive when we were there, and the food came out fairly quickly. We left full and happy. I will definitely return. I really wanted to try the pumpkin wontons, but the had fake chicken paste, and I didn't ask if they could be made vegan, but I will next time.
Oh, and on the heat... We like heat, but ordered 3/5 to be safe. It was spicy, but I'll try a 4 or 5 next time.
