Decent vegan fare

Has some good vegan options. All the toppings are fresh and the dressings are delicious. The teas are also lovely. Staff could use a little training on personalibilty, though. They looked like they really didn't want to be there and just wanted to get our order over with.

Pros: Decent amount of vegan options

Cons: Hard to find parking, Staff aren't very friendly

Love this place

I go here every time I’m in downtown Santa Monica! Huge bowls of veggies, noodles, and tofu for a great price. Don’t forget to ask for free miso soup!

Tasty quick option

A bit of a dual review! Personally I found this very tasty, a good portion and fresh.

My partner on the other hand said they’d give it three stars and complained about it being underwhelming (note we shared a dish, so no discrepancies in what was made).

The location isn’t too great inside, very fast casual but functional. The price is also good for what you get.

Very clearly marked vegan options with lots of customisable dishes.

Fresh and healthy

There were lots of vegan options for toppings and all the sauces were vegan except for one. The food was very fresh and healthy. The drinks were unique. The service was great too. I definitely recommend this place if you want something that’s both delicious and nutritious!

Great portions and fresh

This place is located right on the strip of shops in Santa Monica. The server was super nice to us and apologized for taking long but in reality it was normal time. He gave us a complimentary drink which shows that they go above and beyond to provide good service. We ordered the tofu bowl with Japanese noodles, super greens and pretty much all the possible vegetable toppings. The portions were great! Went to bed happy…

Pros: About 8 vegetable options for toppings, Delicious Japanese noodles, Great location, near shops and happening area

Quick option

This place is right on the busy shopping promenade at a highly visible corner location, so it was easy to pop in and just grab something. Here's by BIBIBOP review.

Although non-veg, you could ask for only the items you'd like for your bowl. I got the red rice with tofu, spinach, shredded carrots, and kimchi. All of the small dishes already have been seasoned and salted, so there's really no need to add additional sauce at the end; otherwise your bowl might get too salty. The food was tasty enough. This is not something that I would seek out, but when you're out and need a quick bite, it's not bad.

Fast food at it’s best

The food was simple, bowl style, with vegan options Of a tofu bowl. The staff was well aware of what ”plant based” means, so it really was fast service. The food was flavourful and spicy.

Pros: Fast, Flavourful

Cons: Kind of expensive
