First Review by Lz

A little odd - Edit

The dining area inside felt a little upscale but the food was average. The main courses were all served with brown rice and couldn't be subbed for white (to my knowledge).

The food felt very westernized, which doesn't necessarily mean it's bad, however I found everything was overly drenched in sauce and was too sweet.

The AC was way too cold, but my main concern were the fans on top of the seating area. We were seated right below one, and it kept blowing into my face, making my eyes dry, causing me to blink all the time. It was fairly uncomfortable.

Pros: Okay tasting food

Cons: Fans blowing into your face, Everything drenched in sauce

Excellent for date night - Edit

This felt like more of a nice place for a date than most vegan restaurants. It even had a full bar and fun cocktails. (I don't recommend the drink with ice cream on top, though--it didn't cone together right and the ice cream just turned into blobs in the drink. Maybe it should be blended.)

Our entrees were just what we wanted. The moo-shu fantasia and sesame tofu (with General Tso's sauce) were both very flavorful and well-presented. Check this place out!

So good - Edit

Vegan heaven - delicate flavours and cooking to perfection made this the best meal of the vegan portion of my life. Sesame Tofu- yes, Seitan in black bean sauce, yes, hot and spicy noodle soup - yes.
Actually a very classy joint indeed, only let down by it's name which fails to do it any justice. Quick and friendly service too. 10 points

DELICIOUS! - Edit

I highly recommend going to this restaurant. I was overjoyed to finally be in a restaurant where I could order anything on the menu! We got appetizers and meals. All of it was delicious and filling. The only negative is that there is no parking. I tried to go after work to pick up food on the way home and couldn't find parking. We went back on a Sunday and there was plenty of free street parking. I will go back.

Pros: Great menu, Good food

Cons: no parking

YUM! - Edit

They have a very wide selection of vegan items! The food is so good and is very inexpensive for the amount served. I had the udon noodle soup, roll sampler and grilled eggplant and they were all great! I thought the food was very yummy and I will definitely go back.

The food is excellent and we were in a hurry so we told our waitress that and we had our food within 10 minutes. AMAZING! Even meat eaters with me said it was the best asian food that they've ever had!

Pros: amazing food, great service

amazing! - Edit

Veggie Fun is absolutely delicious, fresh, all vegan Chinese food. I have never been disappointed. Two of my favorite things from the menu are the soy skewers appetizer (omg!!) and the General tso 'chkn'. Many options on the menu, one of these days I will save room for dessert ?

Love it!! - Edit

Our family eats here at least once a month (take out or eat-in). Finally decided we should write a review. We LOVE the food - especially the scallion pancakes, General Tso's soy protein, Kung Pao Eggplant, and Pad Thai. We always seem to get the same server, who is very sweet (I don't know her name). I don't love the soups (I don't like the taste of seaweed), and I haven't found a tea I like yet. My daughter loves the mint lemonade. For dessert we love the chocolate cake, banana spring rolls, and fried ice cream.

Pros: excellent food, reasonably priced

Happy they are now all vegan! - Edit

Happy to see that Veggie Fun became all vegan a couple of months ago! The service is always friendly and quick. The menu is an eclectic mix of items spanning most of the major Asian cuisines. Lunch specials are a good value. Our favorites are General Tso's chicken, Singapore Noodles and anything on a sizzling platter. The sweet and sour soy protein is the sticky red sauce - just like what we remember from the 70's and 80's. While we don't often order dessert, we've been quite happy whenever we did.

Pros: Now all vegan!, Kosher!, Good for downtown tourists & waterfire!

Wonderful food in downtown Providence - Edit

I had the Singapore Noodles, and am so glad I did! I look forward to trying other items on their menu. Very friendly, attentive service. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

As of 4-Sept-2015, this place is currently listed as "Vegetarian" on Happy Cow, but it is 100% vegan.

Pros: Great food, Friendly service, Very pleasant atmosphere

Divine! - Edit

WOW! I honestly cannot say enough about this place! First, the service is THE BEST IN PROVIDENCE. The servers are ALWAYS super pleasant and attentive. The decor is really nice-it's dark, and I love that! (There is a very interesting "design" on the floor which VERY closely resembles the female reproductive system which I absolutely LOVE).
The food, OH THE FOOD!!!
Try EVERYTHING! It is ALL amazing! I particularly favour the "sizzling tofu plate" (not sure that's the actual name of the dish, but it's the only "sizzling" option on the menu). My kiddos LOVE it here, as does my husband and newly-vegan father. My favourite drink of the Thai iced tea. . .too DIE for! I easily order at least 3 EVERY time! I just cannot help myself, it's SO DAMN GOOD!!! This is hands down our favourite restaurant in the 401! GET THERE AND TRY IT!!!

Pros: SO many vegan options!!! Great location!!! FANTAST

Cons: A tad expensive, but it's to be expected.

Delicious! - Edit

The staff was so nice and helpful! We enjoyed our stay and liked the food very much. Soy and seitan mock meats were delicious just like in the best places in Asia. Non-vegan options (one or two) are clearly marked. Love to have it that way for a change!

Pros: almost completely vegan, vegan cocktails!, nice staff

Cons: some items contain whey

Good Food - Edit

First time I came here. Service is good. Had the hot and sour soup which has the perfect kick of spice at the end.

Had the veggie dumplings. They were okay nothing to really rave about.

For main course has the basil soy with veggies. It was cooked just right. It was a little too saucy for me but they give rice with it so for those who like to combine rice and the veggies it's perfect.

Will def come back next time I am in town

Pros: a lot of options

Never disappoints. - Edit

Every time I order I try to get something different which is something I wouldn't have done at a Chinese restaurant in my meat eating days. Everything has been great every time. My favorites so far have been the orange seitan and the basil soy protein. Love that mint lemonade!

Pros: Tasty, Good price lunch specials

Cons: One item has whey protein.

YUM! - Edit

I really enjoy going out for dinner at Veggie Fun! I preferred the former menu that referred to items as "chicken" or "seafood" over the new menu that calls the items "soy protein" etc. It just seemed to give a better idea of what to expect. Some dishes are spicier than one would expect, so be careful if you don't like the hot stuff. Nevertheless the food is terrific, the staff is great, and the owner is lovely.

Pros: yummy, reasonably priced, pleasant atmosphere

VeggieFun - Providence, RI - Edit

We were thrilled to find a vegan (mostly) place so near downtown. Good service - prompt and friendly. The atmosphere was really nice - laid back. We loved our entrees (General Sao's veggie protein and Lettuce Wraps) and our appetizer (veggie dumplings). The Miso soup was tasty too. Our only complaint was the Sweet and Sour soup (quite frankly we both found it inedible - all sweet, no sour). Even with that little blip, we are definitely going back again.

Pros: Friendly and fast, Nice variety of vegan food, Accessible

Well above average in all respects - Edit

I'm not sure why this is under the "vegetarian" category rather than "vegan" (based upon the restaurant's sign). In any case, I had the hot and sour soup, the spring rolls, and the Black Pepper Seitan. Everything was presented well and (more importantly) really flavorful and well balanced. The wait staff was friendly with just the right level of attentiveness. The portions were generous.

sacobin 13 Sep 2014 - FYI- there are 2 (I think) dishes that have a protein base that contains whey. Other than that I believe everything else is vegan!
