Decadence paradise

4 Posted on 07 / 09 / 2014

Veggie Heaven is not health food. It's vegan mock food and junk food for those times when you feel like pigging out on something out of the ordinary.

This is the place to come to when you find yourself dreaming about fried foods and sweet sauces and...well, you know, Americanized chinese food.

This is the best of the 3 veggie heaven locations. Really nice decor and a huge menu. They even have vegananized sushi.

Service here is always on point and the music is adorable.

Pros: Decadent deliciousness, Huge menu, Vegan sushi

Loving It. Great Improvement.

Great place for prepared bit processed food. Tons of mock meats for those who are looking for nice outing without worrying what to order. If you need something healthier get avocado salad. It is delish.
Their deserts improved in the last few months also.

Pros: Vegan, Delish
Cons: not to many unprocessed items., too far from my house

graceful recovery

5 Posted on 09 / 04 / 2011

After being flooded out from huricane Irene... veggie heaven has recovered gracefully. My first time here and it is all that people say it is. The menu is extensive and creative, the food is delicious, and the prices are reasonable. The staff is attentive and pleasant and the restaurant is very nicely decorated and clean. Kudos to you Veggie Heaven... I'm glad you didn't let a storm bring you down.

There is plenty of healthy food too!

5 Posted on 05 / 10 / 2011

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I am getting annoyed with the people who say that all they serve is fake meat and unhealthy fried food. Most of their "specialties" involve those things... the reason is that people have evolved to like those kinds of foods and they are popular. And these dishes are expensive because of the production costs.

However, they have a perfectly good section of so-called "healthy" foods. They have a list of steamed vegetables with various sauces. They have plenty of salads and healthy juices (which I find disgusting). They sell brown rice, and while most of their appetizers are fried, not all are. So there are healthy options and these are the more affordable ones as well. There is no need to rip on this place just because they choose to cater to popular tastes and those dishes tend to be most popular.

The service is excellent. They are good about recommendations, and once they didn't charge us for a juice because we hated it and no one drank it.

Pros: variety, excellent food, only vegan restaurant in north Jersey
Cons: can be expensive, too many decisions

If you like unhealthy prepared food....

2 Posted on 02 / 02 / 2011

It's so great to have a vegan place that I want to support -and if I was one of those vegans who eat a traditionally unhealthy SAD diet - I would. Most of the reviews are favorable because fried, salty or sweet is what we were used to. Mock meats are ok once in a while, but the majority of items in this place are mock meats. They have no clue how to prepare tofu (unless fried of course). Thankfully more vegan restaurants are being opened that recognizes that healthy is delicious and know how to cook. I wish the chefs at Veggie Heaven would take some lessons.

A Convenient Chain of Vegan Restaurants

3 Posted on 08 / 11 / 2010

Veggie Heaven was the first all-vegan restaurant I tried after becoming Vegan. Back then, I thought it was paradise! It was so great to have a whole menu of all natural vegan options-- including dessert! Since then, I've been to many more vegetarian/vegan restaurants, so my absolute love for Veggie Heaven has slowly dwindled.
Don't get me wrong, it's still nice to have Veggie Heaven around as an option, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's my favorite restaurant anymore. The atmosphere is sweet and relaxing, their avocado salad is quite tasty, and their juices/smoothies are pretty darn good. However, my complaint is that they have mostly fake-meat based entrees (which I don't particularly like). I'd say Veggie Heaven is one of those veg restaurants that's good for non-vegetarians that are considering becoming veg... or for vegetarians who miss eating meat. Either way, it's good to have around.

Pros: all natural, extensive menu, friendly staff
Cons: mostly fake-meat based

We keep on going back

5 Posted on 07 / 26 / 2010

My husband, his good friend, his wife, and I have eaten here many times. The food always is fresh, hot, and yummy. My husbands best friends wife is from China and she LOVES Veggie Heaven. I love going into a place like this and having so many options! They even made a vegan banana split a special one day. I almost died! It was out of this world!

Pros: excellent food, good value, keep going back

Some great items

4 Posted on 05 / 03 / 2010

Fake meat= fake murder. Most of the items here are fake meat, meant for meat eaters who are trying to be healthy and not true vegans. There are still some good vegan choices at Veggie Heaven mostly their organic salads and juices. The real reason to go here is the amazing dessert!

A Perfect Vegan alternative to Standard Chinese

5 Posted on 03 / 30 / 2010

I was really impressed. The use of mock meats and seafood is endless here.No MSG used. They do use gluten and soy so if you are allergic check the menu first.
The staff here is very pleasant and ensures you have a fabulous experience every time.
Chocolate cake and the spring rolls were immediately a hit with my dining party.
They offer other things like smoothies and some standards like veggie burgers and yam fries.
Take out is quick and you can call ahead for faster service.
On the weekends if you go in the evening be prepared for a short wait the place gets very busy.
All in all if you know someone who eats SAD food then this will please them. As a Vegan I never knew you could do so much to mimic regular American Chinese food.

Pros: Wide Variety of items, Small intimate dining room, Service
Cons: Abundant use of Soy and Gluten, Limited amount of parking

AWESOME

5 Posted on 01 / 16 / 2010

GET THE "PORK" FRIED RICE (it will change your life). This place has completely changed my view of vegan dining. This was my first 100% vegan restaurant, and I have to say I'm very pleased with my experience! The food is AWESOME, including all of the fake chicken and beef. There are so many choices, from soups to appetizers to classic Chinese entrees like General TSO's "chicken" and pork fried rice (my favorite). GO HERE! SERIOUSLY! My vegan lifestyle has never been so spoiled!

Pros: extensive menu, excellent food
Cons: stoic staff

One of our favorite places

5 Posted on 10 / 24 / 2009

We have been to the Denville location several times. I have a great love of noodle soup and they do not disappoint. The chicken curry is my favorite and I usually go for the wide noodles. My wife and father in law swear by the paradise chicken (wife no spice, father in law spicey). The staff is accomodating and the service was prompt. Water glasses are kept full, which shows a lot about you service skills. They were nice to the whole family and I actually introduced my inlaws to the joint. They love it and actually like visiting when they come in from out of state.

Pros: good food, good atmosphere, good wait staff
Cons: parking can be a problem

Better in Denville

4 Posted on 06 / 25 / 2009

Have been twice in Denville location and the food seems better then when in Pasippany location. The restaurant itself has great atmosphere. Especially good are the drinks - I had a mint, cucumber and other stuff combo that was really refreshing. Food is still a little oily and heavy, but pretty good overall and worth a visit.

Pros: Ambiance, Menu, Service
