Vegan or Vegetarian?? it's confusing - Edit

It's really confusing whether this restaurant is vegan or vegetarian, the owner claims it's 100% vegan but the menu and also on the website it says clearly "Cow Cheese" in the ingredients!
The employees also don't seem to understand what Vegan is.
Please educate the staff and update the menus and really use only vegan ingredients.

Other than that, the food taste is Ok, not awesome but not bad as well.. I've been to so many Vegan restaurants where the food tasted way better.

Pros: Many menu options

Cons: Confusing vegan vs. vegetarian, Taste is not so great, just average, Expensive

bad experience - Edit

Aside from the delicious chickpea ball starter, I had a pretty bad experience at veggie boutique. Upon entering, the owner claimed that everything was 'vegan', even though the wallpaper in the restaurant had an image of sliced cheese, as well as some items on the menu contained dairy. I ordered pizza and asked for vegan cheese, what they brought in was a pizza with dairy lactose free cheese which I ended up eating without knowing it was dairy (I also have a dairy allergy). The waiters at the restaurant were not trained what the difference was between vegan and vegetarian. I ended up with a stomach ache after that one slice.
Please educate your employees, and don't claim to be a vegan restaurant while serving dairy products.

77 veggies and counting... - Edit

23/1/2015 - I felt compelled to update my original review & increased the star rating form 3 to 4.

I recently ordered from them again and found that, unlike before, the menu was much easier to read and, even better, now includes clearly marked vegan options. Also, all vegetarian dishes are marked if there's a vegan option available on demand.

The taste is still great and the food's still fresh.

--> Original review:

An interesting addition to the burgeoning Jumeirah Lakes Towers independent restaurant scene and a welcome "more international" veggie outlet in Dubai (as opposed to Indian food, for which there are many options in the city).
Everything is prepared from scratch and the food is fresh and tastes fresh. The menu had some really interesting dishes, many of which I had not seen in other places before. At the same time, there are "safe" favourites that even meat eaters will enjoy, e.g. pizza.
For an independent outlet, 77 Veggie Boutique isn't cheap, although it doesn't break the bank either. The menu gives the calories for every dish, if that's your thing. All dishes I had tasted good. If you're vegan, your choice is somewhat more limited as many dishes contain dairy. Also vegan dishes were not labelled separately on the menu - of course, because the ingredients for every dish are listed on the menu, it was easy enough to make a selection.
This place has an outside area, which is nice in the evenings. For those arriving by car, avoid arriving during prayer time, because there is a mosque in the next building and you will not find any parking during prayer times. Else, you can park for 3 hours for free nearby.
