yum! - Edit

I got food delivered so can't comment on the atmosphere. But the food was delicious!
Reviews of each dish I got!
.
SPICY BALI STIR-FRIED RICE NOODLES - very tasty but I would have preferred tofu in it instead of tempeh.
.
MISO WONTON SOUP - good but not as Miso-ie? as I like.
.
TOFU DRUMSTICKS - so good! Had the look, taste and texture of chicken. And quite clever with the "bone" being made of sugar cane.
.
“King Prawn” & Oyster Mushroom Tempura - the "prawn" had the look and texture of a real prawn but I didn't really like it for some reason. Loved the oyster mushrooms though!
.
BLUEBERRY "CHEESE"CAKE
Omg so delicious!

not healthy food - Edit

Just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's not overly processed and good for the planet or the body. Why do vegans choose to omit meat but then flock to fake meat? I don't get it. I just know it's high in glutamates, this place probably has tons of corn startch, GMOs and other undesirable ingredients in it's food.

Cons: full of gluten, processed, not healthy

kind of phony high-end healthy - Edit

Reservations required, dimly lit, small space, to give the feel of an expensive "foodie" place. Seems aimed at diners who view "vegan" as a type of cuisine. Food was fine but not remarkable except perhaps in price. I had an enjoyable meal while there, but in hindsight was kind of disappointed and wouldn't recommend it to others.

Pros: lots of attention from staff

Cons: not kid friendly

Lovely ambiance and delicious food - Edit

A hidden gem! The staff here are so pleasant and knowledgable. Not to mention when we got our food it blew our minds. I had to double check it was a 100% vegan restaurant. Will be back to try more! 💚

Pros: the never ending flavors of each dish

5 stars all around - Edit

This is my favourite vegetarian restaurant in Toronto. It's all around awesome! The service is great, the atmosphere is relaxing and cozy and the food is fabulous! My favourite is the mushroom clay pot. The rice is a unique purple rice and there are a bunch of different mushrooms in the dish. What I love about this place is that they don't skimp on the protein part of the dish ( whether it be tofu, Seitan etc) and include lots of veggies. They don't over carb, over sauce and under protein like a lot of veggie places do. I also love the ginger and mint steamers. I highly recommend the mushroom and prawn appetizer plate. The prawns are super convincing- especially in texture. Did I mention that I love this place?

One of the best vegan places in Toronto - Edit

Vegetarian Haven is a delight. They have a pretty extensive menu, the food is tasty, the staff are very friendly, the atmosphere is good, and the price is moderate.

My only complaint with them is that they could have longer opening hours. I sometimes go and find them closed at unexpected hours.

Pros: Friendly staff, Tasty food, Lots of desserts

Great Restaurant, Very Lovely Staff - Edit

Had my first visit to Vegetarian Haven a couple weeks ago. I was a bit anxious after reading reviews about unfriendly staff, so to my surprise, the staff were WONDERFUL! Very friendly, helpful, and full of joy. They really added to the atmosphere. The food was great as well! Their steamers are absolutely fabulous -- the ginger steamer is a must-try! A friend and I tried some lovely appetizers of dumplings and tempura mushrooms, the pad Thai and a seitan dish, but the real treat was dessert! They really know how to make amazing cakes, ice cream, and cookies at this restaurant! A must visit if living in (or visiting) Toronto!!! The only minor cons were the seitan (it tasted a bit sweeter than we were expecting) and the slightly limited seating (though there was no wait on a table at all).

I've been back a couple times since my first review. Each time got better and better. The coconut curry bowl was AMAZING, and their desserts are always fabulous, as usual. I took a couple non-vegan friends who both loved it. One, I was pleased to hear, said it's much better than a non-vegan restaurant across the street!!! ;) (Updated from previous review on Tuesday November 04, 2014)

Pros: Wonderful Staff, Fast Service, Amazing Desserts

Cons: Seitan was a bit sweet, not savory, Seating is a bit limited

Great Asian Vegan - Edit

Lots of wonderfully seasoned, creative menu options. I had the Chef's Special with soup and salad-- a nice balance of flavors and textures and just the right size portions. On a week night on Baldwin Street's restaurant row, this vegan place was the busiest of the bunch. Good reason: value! Good portions, reasonable prices, healthy food in a nice artistic atmosphere with quick attentive service. Fresh pressed juices were very tasty too.

Pros: Plenty of menu choices, Prices and portions, Service and atmosphere

Cons: potentially crowded

Love! - Edit

Located in a cute area to walk around in nicer weather, we get here as often as possible for Sizzling Seiten, the most adorably artistic Tofu Drumsticks, Ginger Steamer and usually the two cookies with ice cream. Ya, we kill it when we go and we always get the same thing but it is always better than we remembered!

Pros: All vegan, Friendly staff

Cons: No alcohol served

a long time favorite - Edit

i have been a patron at Vegetarian Haven for over 10 years and highly recommend it! it is a subdued restaurant with healthy and tasty food. even though i no longer eat soy (which dominates the menu) i still stop in regularily for a juice and the kale/quinoa salad. i do remember super fresh tempeh though! the manager (owner?) is lovely and staff's the place well, the server's are always pleasant and highly enthusiastic about the food.
Updated from previous review on Tuesday March 03, 2015

Pros: great food, excellent staff, relaxing environment

Cons: limited soy free options, small without patio, closes earlyish!

Awesome Daily Specials! - Edit

This is one of my favourite restaurants in the world. Every day they have a chef's special that's always delicious! The owner and servers are considerate and remember me every time I go back there. We even had them cater a party!

I also recommend the drumsticks, which is done around a subtly sweet piece of sugar cane!

Pros: Excellent food, Considerate staff, Nice location and ambiance

first class dining - Edit

This restaurant not only has exquisitely crafted dishes - try the chef's special - but a lovely ambience too.

It's a little bit pricey, so perhaps not an everyday restaurant, but certainly a great place if you want a really nice evening.

Pros: fantastic food, great service, lovely ambience
