Amazing! - Edit

Amazing! I felt like I was in love... with food! I actually stumbled upon Belmont Vegetarian Restaurant on accident today as I was driving through Worcester. I live over an hour away and will surely be back! I've been a Vegan since August 2010 and this is the best meal I've ever had... even before then. I walked in and the very nice man working asked if that was my first time. I said "Yes". He gave me a sample of everything to try. Today's menu was lasagna, mac & cheese, cabbage, pepper steak, curry tofu (Looked like scrambled eggs), some chicken stuff, and a veggie/bean stir fry it looked like. Well, everything was so good I could not make up my mind so I got a large plate of everything. Considering the amount given (Which was enough for lunch, dinner and tomorrow's lunch too) the prices are very fair. I felt like I was in heaven as I was eating it, because it was so good! My DH who is a "Meat eater" tried the pepper steak and would not have known it wasn't real if I didn't tell him. He said next time he'll get some food there too. My favorite is hard to decide upon, but I guess it would be the pepper steak too, although next time I'll get everything again. I highly recommend this place if you are going to be in the area. Heck, I plan on going down every few months just to go here. The tofu was impressive. I hate tofu any other way I had it cooked, but his was amazing. IDK how he did it, but I had to ask him if the lasagna was real too because it tasted like the real thing. He assured me only Vegan cheese was used. Amazing customer service, amazing food at a good price. It was like Vegan soul food. Oh I had a Veggie patty too which was also excellent.

Pros: Food, Price, Customer Service

Cons: None!

Outta Sight! - Edit

Absolutely love this place! I think I've found my new go-to spot when I work in Worcester. You get a free sampler plate when you come in so that you can taste a little of everything that was made that day. Then you can choose which items you want. You get a large amount of food and very friendly service. They are directly next to the hospital and offer VERY tasty food. The chef really needs to write a cookbook. I'd be the first to buy it!

Pros: large portions, good prices, good variety

Cons: small eatery

Great - Edit

Great experience! I was traveling from out of town and found It on my google gps. Going in I didn't know what to order, so the man working there let me sample everything that was made special that day. What a great start. I then chose my favs and was given a genorous portion. I'll definitely be back!

Pros: Great overall experience, Friendly

Tasty but all fake meat - Edit

I totally agree with the other review: food was delicious, but it was all TSP/TVP, would be much nicer if they could incorporate those yummy flavors into less processed ingredients instead. I also felt it was a bit pricey for what it was.

Cons: all fake meat, pricey

BEST Vegetarian/Vegan In Worcester - Edit

Worth the money. Large portions. Try the soy Krust patty.

The man who runs/(owns?) this place is one of the nicest people I have ever encountered. Yet another reason Worcester is an awesome Vegetarian City!

Cons: Neighborhood

Great bet for decent veg and vegan fair - Edit

Take out Jamaican style soy protein laden, belly filling fair with an above average price, but very delicious. It's a safe bet for vegan and veg travelers going south from Boston. 11.50 for a large to go dish of all the specials of the day- 7 different fresh tasting, Jamaican spiced offerings.

Cons: Too much soy protein, Relatively expensive for what you get

Best vegan food in worcester - Edit

Everything here is delicious. My favorite is the steak and peppers, served with rice. The portions are huge and the staff is friendly and fast. The parking is not as bad as it seems. If you don't see a spot right on Belmont, just turn up a side street. There are only 2 tables, but I have never had a problem eating "in" for lunch. Atmosphere is stark but clean.

Pros: Food, Food, Food

Cons: parking, atmosphere

Vegan Worcester in Jamaica - Edit

As Worcester vegans with HIGH standards, we were thrilled to find this place. Excellent food, extremely friendly people, very clean, very reasonably priced. Just a couple of small tables, but ideal for takeout. As others have noted, there's a large menu, but what is actually available changes daily. When we were there, we had soy pepper steak, soy chicken curry, a really extraordinary soy fish (don't know how they did that!), and a lovely vegetable stew with white beans, all on a lot of rice. Oh yeah, and two excellent patties (vegetable and 'krust'). We got the medium combo entree ($8.50) and split it, and it filled both us hungry people up. We'll definitely be back!

Very pleased! - Edit

I was visiting Worcester on business and did an internet search to find a vegetarian restaurant. The Belmont Vegetarian restaurant came up first on my search -- I'm so glad it did. It was super easy to find, the man behind the counter was friendly, and best of all, the food was REALLY good! I got the small sampler plate ($8.50) and a Snapple and took it back to my hotel room and was supremely satisfied. One of the dishes was a lasagna that I couldn't believe vegetarian -- it was yummy! My second favorite was the BBQ dish with the onions and peppers over rice. Only thing the combo plate could have used a little more of would have been some fresh green veggies -- but maybe I should have gotten a side salad or something. Regardless, I highly recommend this restaurant. Very clean. Very polite to a traveller. I will go back!

Pros: Great food, Easy to find, Friendly staff

Cons: Only two tables

Delicious home-cooked Jamaican food - Edit

We were excited to try Belmont Vegetarian since there aren't any other Jamaican/Caribbean vegan restaurants in New England. It was great. Not everything listed on the menu is available at all times. When you arrive, just ask what they're cooking up before you get your heart set on a particular menu item. (For instance, they didn't have any macaroni and 'cheese' available when we were there.) We couldn't decide what we wanted to order -- so the cook made us sampler plates with a little of everything in them. This included pepper steak, soya fish, dirty rice, BBQ steak, veggie lo mein, and veggies with gravy. All of it was delicious. A medium sized portion cost $8, and a large portion cost $10. We also split a sweet dough patty, which was very flavorful. Needless to say, we left very full. The counter staff was very nice, and there was a steady stream of customers coming in and getting take-out. There are only two tables inside, so be prepared to get take-out if the booths are already occupied. We would definitely recommend Belmont Vegetarian to anyone looking for some delicious, down-home vegan Caribbean food.

Pros: great food, nice staff, convenient location
