I returned to New Harmony and 6 years later it just wasn't the same. Too bad I didn't find out until $70 later.
Lotus Cakes Studio no longer makes their cheesecakes (which I wasn't told until after I had paid. But to be fair, I didn't ask either.), so they were not as good. The chocolate cheesecake was pretty good, just not as good as what I was used to from them.
My "chicken" dishes (fried "chicken" and broccoli with a pineapple sauce; General Tso; "chicken" satay) were just ok. Nothing inspiring or memorable about them. The broccoli that accompanied 2 of the dishes was really good though.
My Scallion Pancakes and Sesame Balls were very good as well. I should've saved myself $60 and just got that.
Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed this go 'round.

I was in town for a family function and based on the reviews here, I decided to give New Harmony a try. I ordered (to go): Vegetarian Spring Rolls, Fried Sesame Balls, Scallion Pancakes, Spinach Pancakes, General Tso's 'Chicken', Moo Shu Veggies, String Beans in Szechuan Sauce, Broccoli with Garlic Sauce, and Raspberry Cheesecake.
The Moo Shu Veggies, String Beans, and Broccoli dishes were good. Everything else was SUPERB! SO delicious beyond my vegan belief, b/c at the time, we didn't have anything that came anywhere near close to this back home. (I couldn't keep my non-veg*n family members away from my food!) The food was fresh, perfectly seasoned, and exciting. The staff was very friendly and helpful during all of my questioning. To top it off, everything was reasonably priced as well.
And that vegan raspberry cheesecake was to die for! Never would've guessed it was vegan. I craved it so badly once I got back home that I had to look up the lady who makes them for New Harmony.
100% vegan food, decent prices, hours
food quality has declined over the years
