Vegan Thai Iced Tea- woohoo! Great service - Edit

I ordered a curry and was never asked how spicy I preferred the dish (I didn't remember to specify either). When it came out too spicy for me to eat, I was offered to have it taken off the check- without me even asking or complaining. THAT is excellent service and genuine caring, IMHO.

The vegetable tempura and thai iced tea were excellent.

San Diego trip - Edit

We are in town on vacation and are trying many different vegan restaurants while here. Paring is plentiful, the restaurant is clean and the staff is very nice. The acoustics need work. There were 4 tables used and it was very loud.

The food was not good!!! The spring rolls were flavorless and the sauce was sickeningly sweet. The Larb was inedible!! Good spice, but it was like bad jerky. The lettuce was cut into small strips and you could not use it as a wrap. The potato was hard and flavorless. My wife had the Pad Thai was oily, way over sauced and again sickeningly sweet.

Would not recommend to anyone. The website requires a two star, I would give it zero!

Pros: Good parking

Cons: Poor acoustics , Terrible food

Great food on a cool block - Edit

In our neverending efforts to try ALL the vegan food everywhere we go, we ordered two appetizers and two entrees. It was entirely too much food for us, but delicious.

I had yellow curry with vegetables, and it was a bit thinner than I anticipated, but flavorful and fresh (no soggy overcooked veggies).

Husband orderd Larb with vegan duck. It was crispy and spicy. He loved it, but while he can usually handle heat, this was a bit much for him. Luckily the dish is served with rice, cucumbers, potatoes, lettuce, and he ordered a Thai Iced Tea. That minimized the fire!

Pros: Good portions, variety, lovely staff

Cons: spice scale was skewed a bit spicier than expected

Great tasting Thai food! - Edit

Had the standard Thai dishes of pad thai, pad se ew (wide flat noodles) and spicy eggplant with rice. The flavors were exceptional - well balanced of spicy, sour and sweet and veggies were fresh and cooked to perfection. Portions were substantial. Highly recommended.

Try the authentic dishes - Edit

I went with a friend who eats no spice. He missed the point. I had Som Tom, Tom Kai and Larb. The green papaya salad was no spicy enough for me but it was unusually fresh and refreshing. The Tom Kai was spicy and great. The Larb was by far the best Thai Vegan Larb I have ever had. True larb is a mock meat spicy chutney that augments sticky rice, cucumber and other tasty small treats. They not only do it right, they do it best.

Pros: Service, Spice, freshness

Cons: parking

Had deep fried vegan cream cheese wontons! That alone was worth the visit. Soups were delicious and I had the Drunken noodles, which were awesome.

Pros: Deep Fried Cream cheese wontons! Hello?, inexpensive

Simply amazing - Edit

This is the first legitimately amazing Vegan food restaurant to open in San Diego in a long time. All of their options are extemely flavorful and high quality. We've eaten here almost every day since we found out about it and keep getting surprised by their ability to create fabulous dishes. Their Drunken Noodles, Green Curry and Tempura are to die for. Do yourself a favor and try Veganic. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Pros: Food is amazing, Service is super friendly

Cons: Not busy enough!

Now 100% Vegan! - Edit

The owner, Emmy, after being open only about a month, made the brave decision to ditch the eggs and dairy options from her menu! It was a risky economic call, since she's competing with a popular non-vegan Thai eatery just around the corner. But when my wife and I dined there last Friday, the place was packed by 8 pm, so she made the right call. The newly veganized menus will be ready soon and there has been some initial confusion and maybe language/accent challenges with new staff about menu ingredients, but Emmy assured me that everything is already free of animal products, making it San Diego's first vegan Thai eatery!
