Choice pick for those willing to splurge a bit

Higher quality food with high price tags attached. I'm a poor student, but I still go here for my birthday because the food is some of the best I've had in vegan cuisine. The style of the place, with it's dim lights, broad space, and cork-bound menus evokes a sense of romance. Great place to have in the Riverside area to stand against the more economical - and equally valuable - of choices.

Pros: friendly staff, excellent food, nice decor
Cons: pricey

This restaurant is a favorite for my boyfriend and I. We commonly go in for lunch and share something from the lunch menu. With the lunch entrees, you get an eggroll, soup, and a dish. To substitute the meat for vegetarian meat it's about $2. The Orange Peel Vegetarian chicken is AMAZING! The service is always good here and I've never had to wait for a table, even on a Saturday night. Give it a try if you haven't already!

Pros: Delicious food, Prompt service, Mellow atmosphere
Cons: Privacy is difficult

I've only been here twice, but I've been very impressed both times. The Sweet and Sour Veggie chicken is amazing. The portions are big enough to share. I highly recommend this place to others! Also, I've never been there where I've had to wait for a table, even on a Saturday night.

Pros: Tasty, Inexpensive, Many choices!
Cons: Can't think of any
