I never write reviews, but reading some of the negative ones about Ayurveda Cafe prompted me to do so. I've been eating here every few weeks for the past two years. My partner has been coming for over 20. It is our sanctuary in NYC. The food is prepared with love, and you can feel and taste the difference. It is a set menu that changes every day, and unlike what another reviewer wrote, there IS a vegan option -- simply tell your server. This is a different kind of restaurant experience. Take it easy, chat with the owner, enjoy the peaceful ambience. Om namah shivaya.
