Good menu - Edit

Good menu with lots of vegan options. Also has a gluten free menu.

The food was quite bland for our tastes. Vermicelli with tofu was supposed to come with a "spicy soy sauce" on the side. What it came with was basically a light duck sauce, sugary without much else.

Other dishes were good enough.

Would happily eat there again but probably wouldn't go too far out if our way to.

delicious vegan menu - Edit

Vegan menu is great with lots of options. Vegan options are loved by vegans and non-vegans! Pad Thai, general tao 'chicken' are our favourites but we've tried pretty much the entire vegan menu and all the options are great.

Yummy and convenient - Edit

This is my restaurant of choice for dinner time. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Their meat alternatives (especially the chick'n) can ealiy fool a meat eater in dishes like their vegan orange chicken.
I also love the location and the fact the they deliver!

Pros: Good food, Good location , They Deliver

Cons: Customer service is not great

Amazing Vegan Pad Thai! - Edit

They have a separate vegan menu with plenty of options! my favourites are the pad Thai and the orange "chicken". Servings are quite large, and I always have leftovers when I order the pad Thai. Sadly the prices have recently increased by a few dollars a plate, but I still think that it's a good value for the quality and quantity of food that you get!

Pros: many vegan options, large servings, friendly staff

Great all around place for the family - Edit

Great restaurant with knowledgeable staff. They are well used to tons of vegans eating here. They have a full vegan menu (in addition to their non-veg menu) with the option of having tofu, vegan beef, vegan chicken, or vegan pork. Very clean, friendly and comfortable place. Everything is well priced. Great for the whole family.
This place is nearby where I live, but I worry its awkward location will be its demise!

P.S. it's on a busy road and easy to miss. Stop at the large Denny's sign.

Cons: location

Really good asian (vegan) food... - Edit

First of all, kudos to the owners. They have created a parallel vegan menu, of high quality, where nobody is left behind. Lots of great flavours, including spicy options, for those of us who are so inclined. The service is great, and the ambience is comfortable...especially for families. My only critique is the location, but it's worth the trek.

Desserts too! - Edit

Large vegan menu, including multiple (!!) dessert options. Quick service and always friendly. The portions are large and the food is good! Fresh rice rolls (V02) with peanut dipping sauce remain my favorite after several visits, and noodle soups are delicious as well.
There are so many choices, you won't know what to order!

Pros: Good value

Great food, friendly staff - Edit

I love this place, they have lots of great vegan options. I've really enjoyed everything I've tried (there are only 2-3 vegan items I have not tried yet).

While we have lost a couple of great veg spots in Ottawa (Green Earth and Zen Kitchen) recently,I hope other veg/ vegans will really support this place so we don't lose it too.

Pros: Great tasting food, Friendly staff, Several options

Delectable Asian cuisine - Edit

It was our second time my husband and I to come to this restaurant. The first time was days after their opening and we had been disappointed by the food and had given up on this place. After reading the two very positive reviews, we decided to try it again tonight. It was a revelation, a totally different experience. The owner explained to us that soon after it had opened, some people they had hired to assist the chef were found to not be up to the task and were dismissed, so it was possibly the reason for our disappointment. So tonight the food we tried was all very good, fresh, crisp, and tasty. We had the "fresh vegetarian rolls", the Thaï soup with spicy tomato broth, the Singapore noodles with roast "pork", and the Asian Stars love nest with fried vermicelli noodles. Each dish tasted very different and all were delicious, some spicy (the soup for instance), not too much but enough to bring depth and complexity to the flavours. The vegetables were crisp cooked, very fresh, the bean sprouts irreproachable. The portions are humongous so one plate can help two people. We are extremely pleased to have decided to go back to this place again and will be back soon.

Pros: Delicious and fresh food, Very good value, Good location, lots of parking

Cons: ?, ?, ?

Tasty Asian - Edit

The fresh vegetable spring rolls for hors d'oevres were served whole, which set the situation up for double-dipping. It may have been due to the fact that they were overwhelmed that evening due to a positive review in the Ottawa Citizen.
I would have preferred the rolls to be cut, and also served with a mild peanut sauce, but it was tasty and satisfying beginning to the meal.
I had the vegan chicken pho. The medium size was ample and tasty. The broth was clear and light (not too salty!), and was definitely a vegetable broth as the restaurant claims. However, there were no bean sprouts or basil leaves, so it was low on actual vegetables. Perhaps this was also due to the sudden influx of diners that night.
My dining partner ordered the shanghai noodles and seemed to quite enjoy them.
The place was clean and the ambiance pleasant. I have recommended it to several people already and I will be going back (soon).

Went back again, and the service was much improved. The atmosphere was more relaxed and the pho was served with bean sprouts and basil. I ordered stir-fried vegetables which were tasty and added to the vegetable composition of my meal.

Outstanding! - Edit

Amazing staff! Delicious food!

My friend and I came in to sample the vegan food and were VERY impressed! Many selections to choose from, I couldn't believe that I was eating vegan chicken! It's been a long time since I've such a pleasant dining experience.

What meant the most to me was how accommodating and kind the staff was to my 8 month old daughter. I asked for a side of tofu for her expecting a slab on a plate with some sauce but when they brought it out it was finely cut, cooked and lightly sauced - they even garnished it for her and put it on a fancy plate. I truly felt like they treated her like a customer which was above and beyond my expectations.

Our server was knowledgeable and made recommendations (which were bang on!).

I can't recommend this place enough, We will be back for sure!

I wish I could rate 5 cows, but the website won't let me!

Pros: Vegan Friendly, Family Friendly-Cartered to my 8mth old, Knowladgeable staff

Cons: Attached to Denny's
