First Review by Linh Veg La

okay. - Edit

Not great, okay if you really need a vegan meal but the food wasn't too flavorful. If you've never really been to a vegan place before it will be great but if you've been to a few then it's just okay.

Everything is sweet - Edit

I really love that this place is all vegan, but I can't recommend most of the food I ordered. We had the potstickers, miso seaweed soup, fish of three flavors, and peanut sauce noodle with tofu and vegetable.

We also had thai tea.

The thai tea was good, but over-sweet. Perhaps they can make it less sweet to order?

Then the potstickers themselves were fine--deep fried though, I think they would have been better steamed. The potsticker sauce though was pure sugar. We asked for some soy sauce, which I used for the potstickers instead.

The soup was fine--very simple miso seaweed soup with tofu.

The fish entree was two deep fried fish tempura pieces on top of steamed veggies, with an incredibly sweet sauce on top. I actually really liked the faux fish, but the sickly sweet sauce was awful--it was sweeter than a dessert.

Then the peanut noodle dish was also basically a peanut frosting on top of normal rice noodles and tofu which was well prepared, but the veggies were the same uninteresting steamed veggies. But again, this was not savory--just so, so much sugar.

I almost laughed when they asked if we wanted dessert. Perhaps they have another dish that isn't loaded with sugar? I would try it again, but with so many other options in the area, I'm not tempted to do it soon.


Pros: Good faux fish., Good service. , Everything is vegan.

Cons: Everything was way way to sweet. , Same underwhelming steamed veggies on everything, Potstickers should be available steamed

great vegan food near the airport - Edit

After a long flight our hungry family found Vegan house for lunch! The pumpkin curry was fantastic! If you are looking for a variety of vegan "meats" this is the place for you! They even have a "fish" sandwich.

Very good vegan food - Edit

We loved that everything on the menu is vegan. There is a nice selection of Asian and American dishes. The menu has a few different mock meats and we really enjoyed what we tried. We had fish with veggies, a curry dish with chicken and spaghetti with meat sauce. The portions are big and the food is really good. The staff are very nice and attentive, the location is convenient and the restaurant is pleasant and very relaxing. We're definitely glad we visited!

Pros: Completely vegan, Excellent food, Friendly staff

Great little restaurant - Edit

Fast service, clean restaurant, and great food. Really impressed overall. They easily could charge more or serve less food to increase their profits. A must visit when visiting Phoenix.

Pros: Prices are great for such huge portions. , Lots of metered parking out front

Why EVERYONE should go to Vegan House - Edit

This is the best restaurant I've been to that is 100% Vegan that is a Thai restaurant. My recommendation are the Pad Thai but don't get it mild there is no flavor. I also recommend the Jungle Noodles that one has flavor but is better with medium heat. The only reason this is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is because of the Pad Thai. The Veggie rolls where excellent but the pot sticker are much better. If you aren't a dessert person this place can change everything. Their fried banana and ice cream (f.b.i.) is to DIE for. This is one of the best restaurants in the books and one that I would go to every day.

Pros: great food , nice/ friendly servers , nice and quiet

Cons: no flavor in MILD Pad Thai ( get medium or hotter), a little slow

Can't wait to come back! - Edit

Soon as I walked in it smells great, like seafood which I miss now being vegan. Don't have to miss it anymore. The fried taro and peanut sauce is amazing! I was going to get takeout but the rest of my party wanted to dine in even though it was almost closing time. They shooed us out at 9:00 on the nose. Most places let you finish. But with this kind of delicious food I'll be back again and again loving it!!

Pros: Delicious food, attentive wait staff.

Conveniently Vegan - Downtown - Edit

There isn't many options downtown as far as full blown vegan goes. My husband and I were pleased with the service we received. We got a dessert, the fried banana with coconut ice cream. Next time we will get entree's. I was confused because the menu isn't descriptive on ingredients so it's hard to say what the GF options are.

Pros: Convenient location, Comfortable seating

Cons: Ingredients not clearly listed, No menu key

Good Flavors - Edit

I have been here twice for lunch during the work week and have ordered carry-out both times.

The Yellow Curry with Soy Chicken, which came with rice, was very flavorful and had exactly the right amount of spice for a curry dish. The portion was good and they were not skimpy with the vegan chicken. It was a very filling dish and I had enough for 2 days.

On the second visit, I ordered the Grand Tempura. This dish is an appetizer, but was large enough to be a meal for me. It came with tempura battered vegan chicken, vegan shrimp, and assorted vegetables. I spotted broccoli, red bell peppers, onions, and sweet potatoes amongst my veggie variety. The tempura dish came with a delicious sweet chili dipping sauce. The problem is that they only give you one sauce, all of which you'll sop up 1/2 way through this dish. An extra sauce is $2. TWO dollars for a 0.25-0.50 cent cup of sauce. Outrageous. The dish should come with 2 sauces already, based on its size.

I don’t like feeling that I’ve been over-charged, so this issue has kept me away for almost a year. Being that the food was delicious, I plan to give them another try, one day.

Pros: excellent flavor

Cons: some things are over-priced, downtown parking

Such a Pleasure - Fresh Tasty Food - Edit

This is a darling little cafe with fresh light-colored decor and excellent food. I loved their tofu seaweed soup, and the fried rice was a healthy change from what you get elsewhere. The mango and purple rice dessert was fresh and sweet. If I lived here, this would be my go-to for lunch.

Pros: Pleasant ambiance, excellent food

Vegan House Yum House! - Edit

This is now my second time here and somehow it is even better than the first. Maybe that's because last time I was here I was 8 days out from my wisdom teeth being pulled. Whatever the reason it is even better than I had remembered. The staff is kind, the Thai ice tea is perfect, and it gives you that true Thai flavor. It can be done family style or individual I would just suggest one plate for an individual as they give you plenty of food! I had the jungle noodles the first time and got the Buddhas delight this time. Both time I got it spicy but I still would not consider this a very hot spicy but I LOVE spicy so keep that in mind. Enjoy!

Not Pleased - Edit

I personally really did not enjoy my experience at this restaurant. My biggest problem was honestly the wait staff. I told the waitress that I really didn't want sauce (I'm not a huge sauce person and I know Thai food has tons of sauce). She said that there was really very little sauce on the dish, so I acquiesced and agreed to have the sauce since it "added all the flavor". By the time I was done with my meal, half the bowl was full of sauce. Not only was this a gross miscommunication on her part, it really made the meal unpleasant for me. On top of that, the tofu was in ginormous chunks in the bowl. On top of that, the taste honestly wasn't that great anyways. Plus, the menu pretty much only has fake meat options. I know that I'm a minority in my general avoidance and dislike of fake meats. However, most restaurants have at least one or two things that don't have tofu and other such alternatives in them. This place had absolutely nothing that could be ordered without the fake meats. My husband was also displeased with his meal, both in taste and in texture. The spring rolls were good at the beginning, but other than that, this was honestly the worst vegan/vegan friendly restaurant I have been to since I've started going to these restaurants. I was extremely disappointed. However, it was a nice atmosphere, and the place was very clean. It's possible that if you really like Thai food you would like this place, but it actually has turned me off of Thai food for awhile, and I was starting to really like it.

Pros: Clean , Good Spring Rolls

Cons: Bad communication, Bland and unpleasant taste and texture, The whole menu is fake meats

Amazing!! - Edit

This place is so cute! The waitress was super friendly and warm, the atmosphere was cozy and jovial, and the food was unique and great! To start with, we got the summer rolls which were very yummy, and then I got the jungle noodle dish, which was very satisfying. I recommend choosing "mild" for spicy level if you are not very tolerant of spiciness. The hot is VERY hot! For dessert, we ordered the coconut ice cream (homemade), and boy, I had my doubts because I typically hate anything coconut, but it was so smooth and creamy with a perfect taste that I loved it! Note that despite the menu using many non vegan item names (like chicken, shrimp, fish, etc..), nothing is actually an animal product.

Pros: friendly waitress, yummy, unique Thai food that isn't too expensive , cute, cozy atmosphere

How Should I Vegan This Review? - Edit

My first visit to Vegan House was the best, unfortunately my following few visits were not as optimal. However, I definitely recommend anyone looking for vegetarian fare in downtown Phoenix to stop in and enjoy a lunch special.

I was so thrilled to see that an all veggie restaurant had replaced the now closed My Mom's Thai Kitchen. Vegan House's decor is earthly colors all over and looks great.

These ain't yo mama's fast food gotta-eat-meat colors. You can free your mind (and your ass will follow) while you sit and wait for food. You may just break out the aromatherapy and start a meditation chant while your Qi comes in equilibrium with the cosmos.

Lunch Specials are M-F 11PM-3PM. They have a to-go menu too and deliver within a mile radius.

The extensive menu includes appetizers, soup, salads, tempura, noodles, rice, sandwiches, wraps, and desserts. And although most of the meals are typical, they are delicious vegan and vegetarian Thai / american.

The Green Curry is delicious. Creamy coconut milk with veggies. I could probably drink the coconut milk by itself.

The Eggplant is delicious as well, but on the oily side.

If you like peanuts, spring the $2 for a side of it and use if for veggie egg rolls dip.

Yum.

Pros: All veggie, In downtown Phx, near light rail, Relaxing atmosphere

Cons: Inconsistent dishes; depends on the cook

Delicious authentic-inspired food! - Edit

Unlike the other Thai places in the valley, this one is absolutely without a doubt 100% vegan-dedicated. Their dishes are colorful, inspired, and absolutely delicious! I am a pad thai lover, and their pad thai is spot on. They have tofu as well as mock meats that are all fantastic. Their soups and appetizers are absolutely delightful, as are their drinks. Their location is downtown with on-street metered parking, but it's worth the trouble as their beautiful dining room transports you into tranquility. My only real complaint is gluten-free is difficult here as they don't label for gluten-free and some of the staff don't appear to be English-fluent.

Pros: Authentic 100% vegan Thai food, Beautiful dining room, Tofu & mock-meat options

Cons: On-street parking only

Fresh Thai with lots of vegan seafood options - Edit

Vegan House has a clean and relaxing atmosphere. The server was attentive, and it was slow because it was Sunday at noon.
I had the Summer Rolls appetizer with vegan shrimp instead of soy chicken (which has gluten). This was two large rolls cut into two and quite filling, so I ordered an entree (Pad Thai with vegan shrimp) to go and skipped to dessert.
I chose the Crisp Rubies but had to ask what it was. The server explained and warned that some customers didn't care for it because it is soup-like. But I enjoyed it–it's kind of like an exotic fruit cocktail in coconut milk, with ice cubes that you stir around to chill the coconut milk (for those also ignorant of Thai desserts : )
The meal was a tad pricey ($30-before tip-for full meal for one person-appetizer, drink, entree and dessert), but portions are generous and it was all good. If like me, you choose Thai to enjoy some spiciness. I would recommend trying "hot" as the "medium" was like "mild."

Pros: 100% vegan, Generous portions , Good service

Cons: A tad pricey, Parking downtown can be a hassle, Gluten-free not labeled
