I ate here for the first time with my friend and her two children (ages 1 and 3). They chowed down on the wheat noodles. She is not a vegetarian but she told me three times that she loved how flavorful the food was.
About the food:
The cold food bar is not the focus. Today there was only raw romaine lettuce with shredded carrots and raw apples.
The hot buffet bar contained: fried vegan egg rolls, fried tofu, stir-fry with bamboo and mushrooms, stir-fried bean sprouts, stir-fried broccoli stems with tofu, two kinds of vegan soup a lentil bean and a mushroom soup (all with soy ),two savory rice dishes with a sprinkle of vegetables(no soy),two spicy/savory rice noodle dishes with a sprinkle of vegetables, two mushroom dishes and a tofu dish.
I have allergies so I did not try everything but my friend said she like everything. I had a salad and rice. Everything else had an ingredient that I am allergic to in it. I wasn't full. But my girlfriend was. That said, I would recommend this place to those who don't have allergies who are looking for an inexpensive tasty meal. I won't go back simply because the food has too many allergens for me. :-)
I have tried, Veggie Garden and Suma Veggie Garden's lunch buffet and I liked the Buddhist's cafeteria lunch buffet more because there was no mock-tofu meat and not all the dishes had soy sauce! But I won't be going back to any of the three places. Don't get me wrong, all three vegan restaurants mentioned above have delicious lunch buffet. And all three lack a lot of fresh veggies. For those who don't have soy allergies. It is a soy feast!
