Somehow the culture here changed from being really friendly to being consistently mean. Food is average.

An all vegan Thai place. Looks like nothing special but the food is amazing. We had the Pad Thai, yellow curry, and the Kale-Cashew Salad and they were all very good. The Kale salad was especially good cannot recommend it highly enough. Very friendly staff too.
Parking can be tricky but you can usually find a spot in the surrounding side streets.
I twice went to Arayas (down the road) but they were shut and so I ended up at Vegan Glory as a contingency. I'm glad I did because they were top notch. We ended up using this place as our regular take-out during our LA holiday.
Quick service, presents clean, crazy number of options, fresh food and very flavoursome. We got "standard" dishes like pad Thai, penang curry and they were as good as any other we've tried. Tried "citrus ribs" - ended up looking nothing like ribs - but tasted awesome! The BBQ chicken salad was also a real winner. We always got take-out but the place looked very inviting for an eat-in meal too.
(Never got to Arayas LA in the end!)
At first I thought the restaurant would be dingy and dirty, but it was clean, nicely decorated, and the food was SO GOOD! Highly recommended.
Vegan Glory is one of my favorite restaurants in the Los Angeles area. It's definitely one of the best for vegan Thai and casual American food around. Here's my Vegan Glory review.
The menu is extensive and features a varied range of savory dishes (see their website for menu), and I like to try something different each time. I've brought my family and friends here, and they all like it, too.
I especially like: the freshy rolls with peanut sauce, som tom papaya salad, veggie burger with lentil loaf pattie, all the curries, the Thai soups, and the lunch specials are great - each comes with a main hot dish, a fried spring roll, side salad, brown rice, and soup.
The service is very quick and friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxed and clean.
In chatting with the waitstaff, I was told that Hollywood celebrities Toby Maguire, Forest Whitaker, Lucy Liu, and Andy Dick get their vegan fix here. How cool is that!
Got a couple of take-outs since I came into town. I chose better the first time, fresh rolls and pad thai, that lasted me 2 two days. Second time was not so lucky, I ordered a cucumber salad, a quesadilla and tempura vegetables. They were out of tempura and called me right away. The quesadilla was a too small portion for its price, but I can't wait to keep trying new things on the menu!
Food was pretty good, it's consistently good and the place is vegan. Has a similar format to other vegan Thai/asian restaurants in big cities. Easy to park right outside the restaurant.
This is one of my favorite vegan Thai places in town. The food is prepared in an open kitchen and they've always been fast getting the orders out. Both their Western and Thai dishes are consistently good. Prices are reasonable. Good smoothies and carrot cake too. Friendly staff.
My omnivore friend and I ate the green curry with seitan and glory noodle with tofu. Neither had much flavor which was especially unfortunate because I was hoping to impress my friend with an all vegan meal. The service was very good and fast but those two meals really turned me off from coming back. The seitan was thin and unimpressive and the eggplant in the noodle were too firm and angular for my tastes.
This is our favorite vegan Thai American restaurant in LA. We used to live within walking distance and the same waitress always recognized us and chatted with us. Everyone is very friendly though. The place is bright and clean. Everything we've had is good. I love that I can get a BBQ chicken salad or tacos and then Pad Woon Zen. Mix it up! The orange chicken, P.E.T. and praram's place are frequent orders as well. We try to get at least one different dish each time that we don't usually get. The wraps are great to-go when you need to bring something vegan with you. We like the cowboy and chicken ones. And the Thai Iced Tea is awesome. They have two types of soy milk. One is sweeter than the other. We try to come back whenever we are in the neighborhood again.
Vegan glory is a easy 'go-to' place when I want GOOD thai vegetarian food. The location is convenient (next to all the shops near Bev Center) and the food is always consistently good. I like the spring rolls and curries. This is a must go if you are into veg thai food!
After seraching for another restaurant and not really liking the area it was in we came upon Vegan Glory and what a great find it was.
The service was very prompt and friendly and the menu is very extensive
We had the dinner special which comprises rice,spring roll,salad and soup of the day as well as a main course.
I had the Pad Thai which was very good and the serving was large enough that I saved enough of it for breakfast the next morning.
My husband had the Red Curry with Soy Chicken which they spiced up even more for him and he thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
The price was very reasonable and the service was fast and friendly - a definite to visit again when in Los Angeles
This place rocks! The food is totally delish. When I'm in the mood for a veggie burger with french fries that's what I get. When I'm in the food for spicy Thai food then that's what I get. The glory noodles are spicy and yummy. The waiters are really great, and the service is super fast -- in fact, this is by far the fastest service restaurant I eat at. Recommended.
I had the cowboy wrap, which is not very cowboyish, but good. Also did the Tempura. It was enough for two people that was for sure! I'm scared of the vegan shrimp! But over all a nice place, would eat there again and try some more things. I don't think I ordered anything special and had the feeling there were better menu items.
Wow!! Friends brought me here one time and I had not tried Thai food before. Well, it certainly won't be my last!! :)
This place rocks... DELICIOUS food, great service, nice location.
I went with two friends and we all shared the following dishes: stir fry chow mein, red curry with brown rice, Thai soup and fresh rolls. What a treat!!!
This place is a must-eat-at!!! Your tummy will thank you for it!!!
soy/seitn heavy but options available. great for the area. great to go or there.

We discovered Vegan Glory in West Hollywood in 2009 when staying nearby. On every trip to LA, we eat at Vegan Glory. We were so impressed that when my wife & I got married in Dec. 2010, we paid them to bring their delicious Thai food to the banquet hall in Glendale. Although we were the only vegans there, all the meat eaters liked the food we selected from the menu. We purposely ordered extra food so they could fill the take-home containers we purchased for the event. One suggestion on catered selections...don't order soup, as it won't go as well and what is left over will spill in the trunk on those LA hills, unless you have it in a soup pot.
I went to Vegan Glory on my recent visit to L.A. and fell in love with the food. It's by far the best vegan place I have eaten at in some time. The food was amazing and the customer service was ideal.
It didn't take too long for our food to be prepared; it was just the perfect amount of wait time. It was an extremely lovely visit.
My only complaint about it was the 3 dollar charge to park inside the plaza. I thought that was a little unnecessary; it may give you a dollar off your meal, but since you're already paying to be there, why add the extra charge?
Besides that, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Vegan Glory, have recommended it to friends, and look forward to eating there again soon.
The dining room is a bit small and the staff are busy with many takeout orders but the food was delicious and served quickly.
I love this place. It's nothing fancy or overdone. Just simple good vegan food. =) Love the tacos and the lentil loaf. It's simple and good. Not overdone. 'm lucky they don't deliver all the way to my house or I would be in some serious trouble! =)
Pretty good food, friendly service, amazing vegan corn ice cream for dessert. Ambiance leaves something to be desired, but for these prices, I'm certainly not complaining!!
We went to vegan glory yesterday and were suitably impressed. I've certainly had better vegan thai, but I've also had much worse, so this place settled nicely in between. Interesting varied menu made it worth the trip. We really enjoyed the rice paper fresh rolls with a black bean sauce, and our two mains were good too, though neither had me gasping for more. I liked the pumpkin tofu and the soba noodles though neither of their fake meats was as good as some I've had before. Very friendly staff when I was there, contrary to some of the comments from others.
The name of this place would suggest it is beyond Epic.
My meal was ok. I had the Green Curry (good spice level), Spring roll & Soup (mixed vegetable). Considering how much I paid for my meal I didn't walk away disappointed but in my last days in LA I doubt I'll return, I'm a big fan of Thai food and this place wasn't bad it was just nothing impressive.
Note: My girlfriends meal came out 5 mintues before mine and I had to send it back as I requested white rice and got brown. This didn't bother me at all but I have noticed that service is a big deal in the US.
i used to go here all the time just because i worked a few blocks away. If i wanted a hot meal and didnt want to spend a ton of money at RFD I would go here. I don't recommend going here unless you have to. The food isnt horrible at all... every dish just tastes the same. You'll probably get yelled at by one of the employees and quite honestly i question if the menu is fully vegan. They claim they are but i doubt that some dishes are vegan.
This was the first vegan restaurant I ever visited before becoming vegan, so I guess you could say it contributed to my decision to go all the way. With so many thai vegan places in LA it's difficult to visit them all, but this one definitely is among the best.
Our favorite vegan restaurant in LA. Loved the roti and guac. Everything we tried was good. Nice atmosphere. Fast and friendly service. Clean.
small and clean place and the people are very nice. has an extensive menu of yummy vegan dishes. try the "beef" tacos. parking is a hassle but they offer tips/tricks for that.
Apparently famous people go here, as I saw one during a visit [a few years back]. Im not too keen on Vegan Chinese food, but I will say this place is good. I had the Chinese Broccoli with Seitan; it was good but would also try something else if I go there again.
Vegan Glory is a nice little joint, though the food didn't blow me away as far as Thai cuisine is concerned (and I've lived in Thailand, along with my OCD which has taken me to at least 100 Thai restaurants in the US).
The "chicken" satay appetizer was excellent, with richly textured chicken and a wonderful peanut dipping sauce on the side. This was the highlight of the meal and my friend and I both loved it. My pepper steak basil stir fry was decent, but nothing special. It didn't have the array of flavors that Thai basil stir frys are supposed to have (sweet, salty, crispy and soft). The pepper steak itself was just hydrated tvp and nothing fancy (admittedly, the dish tasted better the next day, after the leftovers got a chance to marinate). My friend's green curry was too heavy on one unidentifiable seasoning, which corrupted the curry taste.
Also, both of our dishes were a tad too spicy, though we weren't even asked about spice level when we ordered (note: I grew up eating Indian food, so I know spice, and if a dish is spicy for me, it'll be spicy for 99.9% of the world).
Otherwise the service was fast and friendly. Prices and portion sizes are good.
Its been a month or two since I ate there but the food was very good. Service was quick. I enjoyed a glass of wine with my meal and had a Thai themed dish with mint. I am not big on the mock meats so I had tofu.
Small place but very clean and bright. They seemed to have a few regulars that stopped in. All in all I would highly recommend and plan to return soon.
This restaurant does not disappoint. Shockingly satisfying fried chicken nuggets in orange sauce stood out on our first visit. The papaya salad is also perfect: crunchy, sweet, tart, and spicy. I also heartily recommend the pumpkin, eggplant, tofu dish: a great texture and flavor combination in a light, gently spicy, savory sauce. So far, in fact, I've loved every dish. Plus, the vibe is very friendly. This is a special place.
