Loma House - A Superb Experience
Posted on 01 / 02 / 2013
I will begin this review by stating that I have never taken the time and effort to write a review about any product, let alone restaurant, in my life. I made a Google account, an Urbanspoon account, and now a HappyCow account, solely for the purpose of writing this review and do not plan on using any of them after I have submitted this review.
Earlier this evening, my girlfriend and I stumbled upon Loma House's website. We recently decided to make the switch to a vegetarian diet and we are also working hard to make our lives completely vegan. This fact, combined with their well designed and informative website, drove us to travel one and a half hours to dine at Loma House in Edmonton (we live in Red Deer).
We ordered a drink (a tropical fruit smoothie), two appetizers (vegetable spring rolls and vegetable pot stickers/dumplings), and two entrees (a noodle dish and a "beef" stir-fry-like dish that was preceeded by a bowl of soup and succeeded by a dessert), for approximately $35. Every single item that we ordered was of impeccable taste and we were so full that we had to take some of the food home.
The service was exemplary. We received each dish in the perfect combination of order and time. We were served with the utmost courtesy and were thanked numerous times, especially after our server found out that we had travelled from Red Deer to dine in his restaurant.
The restaurant was very comfortable and relaxing. The decor was beautiful and the restaurant, including the bathroom, was very clean. Both the restaurant's decor and its food appeared to be influenced by an asian style.
After the meal, my girlfriend and I decided to purchase some of the pre-cooked/frozen take home food/groceries that the restaurant sells. The man who served us was very informative and his help in selecting the food that we purchased was much appreciated. I am thoroughly excited to use this food in our own meals. It is also of note to mention that the restaurant sells many different types of tea pot/cup sets that appear to be both decorative and practical.
I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Whether or not you are vegetarian or vegan, this restaurant has it all: the service is quick, yet not rushed; polite; and genuine; and the food is superb!
