Alright - Edit

Quality of product was below par (used instant potatoes and refrigerated goods). However diverse selections are available with vegan meats and cheeses.

Best Vegan food in Toronto - Edit

I eat here all the time, and its always fantastic! By far my go to place for food. Both vegans and meat eaters alike enjoy the food here, there's something for everyone because the menu is so big. You can get anything from pho to chick'n parm. The soups are my favourite, especially the tomato dill noodle! The staff are super nice, and the food is just delicious!

Pros: delicious food, wide variety , friendly staff

Fabulous and Affordable Vegan Fare in Toronto - Edit

Even though the name on the outside sign says vegetarian, this is a 100% vegan restaurant. The inside is small but clean and staff are very friendly and attentive. We love the food so much that my friend and I have already eaten from this restaurant twice since I arrived. The 1st time we ate there and the 2nd we ordered in. Both times the food was delicious and had a good portion size.
Our 1st meal - we had 3 items. The Tom Yum Soup was so good and the small sizewas adequate for my friend and I to share. We also had their Harvest Salad and Orange Imagination. It was a wonderful meal that filled us up but not uncomfortably as less healthier food might do... $32 total including the tax felt like a really good deal considering all the fantastic taste explosions and portions. Yum.

Pros: All Vegan, Good Serving Sizes, Fresh, Decent Price

Great for catering and dine in! - Edit

My husband and I recently catered our rehearsal dinner with the Penne, Pasta Shells, Chicken Nuggets, Spring Rolls, Quinoa Sushi, Pita with Hummus, Crispy Wontons and Harvest Salad! Our family/friends were surprised and impressed that everything was vegan! They made recommendations on what would be good to present and how much to get.

When we dine in, I love the Unchicken Burger and you have to save room for the Lemon Cheesecake!!!!

We discovered Green Earth at VegFest 2014 and have been dedicated ever since!

Pros: A million options to choose from, Tasty

Great everything! Highly recommend!! - Edit

A perfect choice for vegans, vegetarians and all! Food is delicious...portions are good...service is great...prices are very reasonable (dinner for 4 with 2 appys $60 tax in) The best part was how much it was enjoyed by the often skeptical non-veg in our party. Convenient location. This was our first visit and will definitely not be our last.

Pros: great taste/texture, portion size and price, very friendly service

Cons: long wait for food if you are in a hurry, ...worth the wait!

Thai banana rolls - Edit

The Thai banana rolls with ice cream are worth 5 stars right off the bat. I had the Three Flavours stir fry with brown rice for the main. Lots of sweet basil. It was very good.

The waitress was friendly and the place had a serene, calm atmosphere.

My omnivore friend had the Buddha burger with fries and he was very pleased with his meal too.

Pros: Delicious, friendly, inexpensive

Great Restaurant! - Edit

I have been to Green Earth at least half a dozen times now. The lady who always seems to be working there is very friendly. The food is delicious, comes out fast and most items are around $8 or $10. The portions are large and everything is always tasty. I love this place! I just wish that they also had a location downtown, rather than just the location at Broadview and Gerrard.

Pros: Tasty Food, Reasonable Prices, Good Service

Cons: Only one location in Toronto

Great restuarant - Edit

Green Earth is one of the vegan restaurants that I continue to revisit. They have a really great menu with many delicious options. The servers are always friendly and provide great service. My recommendations would be the crispy spring rolls, crispy chow mein (they also have soft chow mein), the thai banana rolls with ice cream and the tom yum soup. The only downside is that each time I have dined in the restaurant is empty or only has one or two other customers.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great selection, Good food

Good location if driving into Toronto - Edit

This is an easy restaurant to get to if you are driving down the Don Valley Pkwy coming into Toronto. We went there for lunch and I had the chow mein which was one of the lunch specials. I ended with Thai banana rolls with soy ice cream and coffee. It was good but I would like to try the regular menu at some point instead of the lunch special.

Pros: Good location, Inexpensive, Good food

Mock meats, alright - Edit

I'm not a huge fan of mock meats and this location, unlike it's sister restaurant in Pasadena is very mock-meat centered. They do have fresh juices which help counter the heaviness of eating mock meat though. I only ordered a juice and a "Fajita Vegana" wrap (lunch special). The "lunch special" meant it came with a drink, but the choices were only coke, sprite, etc, and I couldn't sub for a hot tea or anything unsweetened. The wrap was also a little small, and contained mostly peppers, mock meat, and sauce only, but was only $6. If I went back I'd definitely order Chinese style food. Nice owner, looking for a new waitress if you know anyone.

Pros: Juices, Friendly owner

Cons: Unhealthy drinks

Can't Miss the Crispy Chicken - Edit

Ate here for lunch today, and loved almost everything we ordered. We started with crispy chickun nuggets, which were as crispy as described and were tasty. We then had the asparagus and spinach soup, which was good but tasted a little grassy. For entrees we had a portobello burger and a chickun burger. Both were yummy, but the chickun burger was especially delightful, and had the same fantastic breading as the nuggets. The avocado on the sandwiches came in one big square chunk each though, so we sliced them up so they would cover more of the patties. Really, really tasty. The server was very friendly too.

Pros: Tasty, Friendly staff, Wide selection

Great All Vegan Food and Wonderful People. - Edit

After traveling to Toronto again this year, eating a great meal at Green Earth again, I realized that I forgot to review them last year when I first discovered them and ate there. So, I need to relate my story from last year.

I was with my 94-year-old mother. I parked in front of the Green Earth Restaurant and went inside to get a menu to show my mother so we could decide if we wanted to try this place which was new to us. Mom said OK, and I proceeded to go to the machine to get a parking stub for the dashboard.

In the meantime, the owner/waitress, who luckily for us wasn't busy at the time, came out to help my mother into the restaurant (mom was weak and also uses a cane). After seating us, the lady sat diagonally across from mom and we talked for a while. The lady looked down and noticed that mom had inadvertently put her shoes on wrong that morning (left on right and right on left). The lady then proceeded to untie mom's shoes, switch them to the correct feet, and re-tie them.

I don't think that you'll find nicer, kinder people anywhere. And, they make great food and drinks.

love it - Edit

I THINK this is probably my favourite Asian veg restaurant in toronto. I don't get there as much as I'd like since I'm a west ender and always seem to find myself passing by on tuesdays, when they are closed! But I've had a bunch of stuff off the menu and it was all good. Last munch it was a stick to your ribs US style meal and I loved it. They renewed my love for Asian Veg (which was all we had back in the '90s and I got sick of it!)

Pros: inexpensive, decent portions, very tasty

Cons: far from me, closed tuesdays

Not Bad.... - Edit

Not too bad, I can't say anything negative really because I liked everything.
My barbeque tofu was a bit plain, it lacked side vegetables and the barbeque could have been a lot more thick and rich. The Tofu could have been baked more (or fried or flame grilled) I did however like the creamy potato soup, but that also could have been much-much more thicker consistency. But was all satisfying none the less.

I also ordered 3 appetizers, all were amazing. Fried nuggets, prawns, and a 3rd I do not remember were all really delicious.

Pros: Reasonably priced, Friendly, Great appatizers

Cons: entrees a little bland, Atmosphere a little boring

Great little place for an inexpensive meal - Edit

My wife and I come here often for a simple, inexpensive meal. Three entrees shared between the two of us comes to $20 which can't really be beat. The food is pretty good for the price and I highly recommend the hue noodle soup or the three flavours. Their menu is varied and you can get everything from tacos to burgers to philly cheesesteak sandwiches to wonton soup. Not the best vegan restaurant in Toronto but it's affordable, friendly, clean, and one of those places you can go back to again and again.

happy 2nd anniversary to Green Earth! - Edit

Just let me quickly add my voice to those who love this restaurant. Probably the best selection and variety of vegetarian options I have ever seen. We enjoyed everything we tried. The waitress was sincere and willing to help with food restrictions.

You don't need to accept their spiritual convictions to enjoy great food, any more than you need to be Bhuddist to enjoy a Buddhist veg restaurant. The purpose of the restaurant seems to be to promote a vegetarian diet as compassionate to animals, environmentally friendly and a healthy lifestyle. No argument on any of those points from me! (We researched the organization, and found no activities that we would withhold support for.)

Pros: anazing selection, great food, friendly service

Best Food Ever! - Edit

I have gone to Green Earth every week for 2 years now and I still love it, the food is so good, there are so many options, the staff are friendly, it is in a good location, and the food is so good, I have been getting the crispy veggie nuggets and the spicy Indian Curry with veggie beef, but everything is good you should visit it today!

Pros: Good Service, Fair Prices, Excellent Food

Small, sweet, different - Edit

I live near this restaurant and have found my experiences there enjoyable and the food tasty. The servers I've gotten have been attentive, though each time I've been there there's not been many people in the place (several times I have been the only person there)

I really appreciate that the menu is primarily vegan with VERY specific labeling on the few products with milk contamination, and I personally like the mixture of cuisine styles. I've yet to try many of the items, but I've enjoyed both the more typical Asian dishes (hot and sour soup, tofu and vegetables) and the western pastas I've had.

I find the food rather bland as far as seasoning goes, and the few 'hot' dishes weren't very hot and spicy to my palate, but I've never gotten a bad plate here. The large soups especially have been a lifesaver for me when I've been sick, I've taken them out and carried them home for later.

A word of caution, though, there's a television going constantly, as the restaurant is owned by a religious organization, and it constantly flashes multilingual "news" and information from the perspective of their leader. I find it distracting and sit facing away, and even if the decor wasn't simple tables and chairs in a white room, I'd not bring someone else here to eat who hasn't before because of this television.

Pros: Variety, Cross-culturual, Inexpensive

Cons: Bland, TV, Poor ambiance

Not your typical Chinese-Buddhist style cooking - Edit

Perhaps it's because Green Earth is a Supreme Master Restaurant (paintings from the master on the wall, their tv channel playing on the large monitor in the corner), but their menu is distinct from other Chinese-Buddhist restaurants in Toronto. It's a mish-mash of Western and Pan-Asian, and there are gems throughout.

To give you an indication of how cool this place is, during the holidays and beyond they had a six course Xmas special with cider, stuffed and baked mushrooms, a heart soup, cranberry, mashed potatoes & a tofurky-style faux turkey roast with gravy, greens and carrot cake for dessert for 17.95. Holy cow it was a post-holiday godsend. I'm marking it on my calendar for next year.

Their prices are typically lower, averaging $10 for a main.

I'll be back again soon, as my gf also can't get enough of it.

Pros: god bless supreme master, friendly/not culty, diverse menu

Cons: so-so decor
