The place is kinda ran down in a bad area, but the food was GOOD with flavors. I had the fried tempeh and non fried tempeh. I’m not sure what they were called, It was really hard for me to read the menu and know what to order (only my fault). The non fried tempeh had good flavor, just too spicy for me. The fried tempeh was good, ordered a side of non spicy peanut sauce for $3 to dip the fried tempeh in. The rice had coconut flakes on them, they were nice. It was a little dry, I’m glad I got the peanut sauce to pour on it. The coconut milk drink was yummy with lots of sugary flavor syrup. The meal was tasty but heavy, I felt big and sleepy after lol. Next time I’ll just order a couple fried tempehs and a peanut sauce to dip it in. I wouldn’t make it a regular thing, but I’ll go back sometime.

So delicious!

We stop here every time we’re even remotely close to San Bernardino (and it’s not a Saturday, since they’re closed on Saturdays)! The people here are so nice and welcoming and the food is delicious. The first time we came in 2015, they gave us a sample of every veggie dish on the hot bar and told us to sit down and try everything before we ordered—and it was so hard to decide, everything is AWESOME.

We always get two three-item combos and some fried tempeh on the side—enough food for three meals for less than $10/person! Half and half turmeric and coconut rice, coconut curry kale, the jackfruit, and fried tempeh are a must, but you can’t go wrong as far as I’m concerned. FYI for vegans, there are whole hard-boiled eggs in some of the vegetarian hot bar dishes—my husband usually just asks for no eggs, but you can also just skip those dishes completely! The snacks around the register are also very good.

5/5 stars, wish I lived closer by!!

Pros: Lots of delicious veggie and vegan options, Nice people and quick service, Cheap with huge portions

Hidden gem

Decent amount of vegan and vegetarian options which is woefully lacking in this area. Serves different preparations of tofu, tempeh and vegetables. Good sized portions and inexpensive too!

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Friendly staff

Cons: Hole in the wall
