Local congregation of vegans, non-vegans & inbetweeners - Edit

Out-dated interior design that has a somewhat charm to it.
Veganized version of Chinese, Asian-fusion & miscellaneous cuisines. While the menus can seem a bit overwhelming, you will eventually find your favorites/ usuals. Plus it's a good excuse to continue coming back for lunch or dinner

Pros: extensive menu, accommodating for large groups

Cons: dine-in orders can at times be inconsistent, the quality of dessert selections can be meh...

great vegan food - Edit

a little gem in Bergen County for vegans, since not to many of 100% vegan restaurants around here or maybe that's the only one. I wish they would change their menu up a little bit. Friendly stuff , very spacious, lovely atmosphere.

Best restaurant I've ever been to! - Edit

This awesome restaurant is really the best. It has everything anyone could ever want, and it is extremely hard to choose what food you would want over the other. If you ever try their food, you would have the same opinion as any other person who tried it. If you have never gone here I would recommend to go here whenever you happen to be nearby.

disappointed with order - Edit

I ordered the falafel and the butternut squash soup. The soup wasn’t bad, but came with a huge chunk of kale in the middle. Wish it was in small edible pieces so that you could actually eat it in the soup. I ended up just taking it out.
The falafel was awful and i would not recommend it. It also came with a weird watery tasteless dipping sauce that i almost spit out. I keep hearing positive things about this place, but still have yet to experience that as this was my second time eating here. Next time i will try the Chinese cuisine instead.

The best Chineese food ever! - Edit

I've had my fair share of typical, nasty, MSG filled, (American) Chineese food. But this place was what I invision eating fresh food in China would be like. The menu has tons of different options. I had the Hot and Sour soup, spring rolls, and General Tso Chicken, (all for about $16 plus tip) Everything was amazing and fresh. Excellent flavors and everything was Vegan. The vegan chicken was very good. I'm not from here, only visiting, but I would eat here at least once a week if I could. I highly recomend giving it a try!

Pros: all vegan and its tasty, and very reasonably price

Cons: couldn't find any

This place is amazing, I eat here on a weekly basis - Edit

I don't even know how to review this place - it's just an institution. The menu is crazy-extensive, the food is incredible, the owners are really supportive of the veg community (allowing regular meet-ups), and their delivery range is very generous.

What can I say? I've been eating here on a weekly basis for a couple of years and I'm not bored of the menu yet. If you live in the area and you haven't been here, you're missing out in life.

Pros: Very extensive menu, Incredible food, Nice owners

Cons: None

Great Food & Service - Edit

I stopped by in passing and ordered over the phone for pick up because my child was asleep in the car. I jokingly asked if they could deliver it to the car and the woman said yes! She called me back when my order was ready and brought my food to my window, refusing to take a tip. Kindness like that is not to be taken lightly. That alone sold me on returning to this place, but the food was also incredible! My family shared spring rolls (5/5), scallion pancakes (5/5!!!), mango flavored chicken (4/5), and sesame chicken w/ broccoli (5/5). I will absolutely be returning! For the service AND the scallion pancakes!

Veggie Heaven has a huge menu and every is very reasonably priced. The restaurant is a actually rather large and it was almost filled when we came for Sunday lunch. I didn't get a chance to try the desserts but I think I will next time!

A classic! - Edit

What can I say? This place has been doing vegan Asian food forever. I've been going there for years. Decades actually since they were in parsippany, not to mention their other locations. I like to make it a good date night or birthday dinner staple. Since they moved to denville years ago,they really stepped it up with beautiful decor. Besides the classics like general tso's, they've really stepped up the menu to not only compete with "real" chinese restaurants, but to surpass them. Highly recommended!

Pros: Not run of the mill Chinese food, Beautiful restaurant , parking

Cons: Can get busy

Childhood Favourite - Edit

I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a foetus (literally). Every time I come here, whether with friends or family, I am never disappointed.

The food here at Veggie Heaven is delicious with a diverse, ever-changing menu. With so many options to choose from, I am always ready to try something new. I then change my mind and order the same dishes I always get.

The service can be a bit slow, but the wait is well worth it. The owners and staff are very friendly, and the tea is good. Make sure to come by this place when you're in the area (or even if you're not).

P.S. Also, the cakes are great and moist

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly People, Fond Memories

Cons: Decor is a bit worn

Nice Vegan option in NJ - Edit

Unfortunately NJ does not have a lot of Vegan/Vegetarian options for dinning out. Veggie Heaven in Teaneck is a great option for those that live a Plant Based lifestyle/Diet. The Menu is Asian with some non-Asian options ( Jamaican patties) . I have found that the "Chicken" options taste better than the "Beef" but that is just a matter of personal taste. The prices are great with entrees topping out around $13.00. I have always found the staff friendly and accommodating. Their creative take on Vegan sushi is a delight , give it a try. One of my favorites on the menu is their Lo-Mein, I find it one of the best I have tasted.

Pros: Non-GMO soy, Creative vegan take on asian cuisine, Vegan Sushi

Cons: some dishes can be a bit sweet, Some dishes do not have enough sauce.

delicious Chinese Food - Edit


We were seated in booth with a window view in this large and bright restaurant.
The servers were very quick but not the most talkative. We loved the General Tso tofu the best. It came with broccoli that was perfectly cooked and mushrooms. We also loved the chow mien with vegetables. The sweet and sour chicken was good but a bit too much sauce for me. I love that they offer brown rice and that things weren't too oily. I would love to come back and try some of their other dishes. Dishes are large and about $11 each which was very reasonable. I really wish there was a restaurant like this in my town.

Pros: brown rice, vegetables perfectly cooked, bright and clean

So good! - Edit

My (non-vegan) boyfriend and I went here for the first time last Friday and let's just say that even he was impressed with the cuisine. Although he ordered simple (as did I), he was very impressed with the quality and the taste of the General Tso's "Chicken." He told me try some and honestly, it was the best thing I've had since going vegan. If you live within the Teaneck area, I suggest making a trip to this place. The menu has a HUGE selection and I wish I was exaggerating!

Pros: Excellent food, Reasonable prices, Huge menu selection

I LOVE veggie heaven! - Edit

I have also visited the veggie heaven in Denville, but like this one a little better. They have pretty similar menus, but this one gives you a pot of free hot tea with your meal, and they advertise on a white board as soon as you walk in that they use only non-GMO soy! (:

The menu is very extensive and can be overwhelming. It is mostly Asian inspired meals and sushi, but they also have Mexican food and veggie burgers and lots of vegan desserts. I have had a few meals here. Everything I have ordered has been very good, and I always look forward to going back!

authentic chinese for vegans - Edit

Extensive menu presents many options: all the traditional chinese dishes are made with fake meats and other asian cultures represented too. Also creative tofu and vegetable choices. Great prices: had lunch with spring rolls, hot and sour soup, sezchuan tofu with brown rice for under $10! Very good service with food served quickly.

Pros: Tasty chinese, fast service, great prices

the best - Edit

This has become my "go-to" restaurant. I always take food to go because I can't get enough. If you're vegan or vegetarian I recommend you stay away unless you have a large portion of your income to spend on this place.

Pros: free tea, amazing food, vegan sushi and desserts

Just a town away - Edit

Great food... Service was Not the best! But I must say they know what they are doing BYOB very casual and everyone was nice. I wasn't impressed with their "Indian samosa" not that it was bad but it wasn't Indian... More like a spring roll, soup was amazing. I'm a huge veggie fan but this place knows how to cook tempeh and the seitan orange chicken was amazing.... I'll prob do take out or lunch but I'm going back...

Pros: Close to home and decently priced, Amazing flavors , Totally vegan

Cons: Mostly meat substitute dishes, Very noisy , Very messy

favorite Chinese - Edit

My boyfriend took me here on our first date (I was vegan at the time) and it blew me away. Hands down the best vegan Chinese food...actually just best Chinese food ever. We come back on special occasions and it is always a treat.

Our favorite Chinese restaurant ever - Edit

Veggie Heaven is reliably delicious, and their menu seems to add a page every time we go there--it's truly massive. In addition to Chinese food and American food, they have Japanese, Indian, Vietnamese, and Indonesian dishes, plus smoothies, juices, baked goods, etc. Their exotic mushroom soup is a perfect starter, and their vegan cakes are great finishers. I wish we lived closer so we could eat there every week.

Pros: Enormous menu, Great food, Efficient service

one of the best Vege restaurants in NJ - Edit

Varied menu that does not disappoint. Competes with Kaya's Kitchen for the status of the best NJ vege spot.

Greedy and Hostile Owners - Edit

When the credit card system stopped working, Doris (the manager of Veggie Heaven in Denville) demanded that customers either walk down the street to get cash from the ATM machine or provide license numbers along with credit card numbers to have their charges made later. She threatened, "Either you go to the ATM or you give me your personal information!" She later called the cops on long-time customers for politely declined to provide the license number but agreeing to leave the credit card number. Horribly greedy and unethical service/management.

There is NO virtue is supporting places like this.

Food wasn't all that great either.

Cons: Horrible Staff, Horrible Owners, Poor Service

Extensive vegetarian menu-fantastic lunch special! - Edit

My husband and I love this special place for it's wide variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Our favorites are the "Chick'n" with cashew nuts and vegetables, the vegetarian duck selections, their soups, and their Moo Shu Basil rolls. One omni-eating friend who joined us for dinner said in a loud voice "this is Chicken!" and alarmed some of the other customers - but fear not, it is definitely vegetarian or vegan. She just couldn't believe how delicious it was, and is considering trying other vegetarian meat alternatives. They also serve fresh squeezed juices, including carrot. I highly recommend this restaurant for vegetarians and vegans because there is such an extensive menu. Besides the Chinese menu, and even vegetarian sushi (!), there are also yummy house specials like Swedish "Meatballs". Parking is around the corner in a free municipal lot. Attentive waiters.
Updated from previous review on Sunday October 28, 2012

Pros: Excellent Veggie menu, Nice vibe/good value, Attentive staff

Cons: parking is around corner

Could have been better. - Edit

Food was just so-so. The fried food ("chicken legs") tasted a little chemically. Not sure if it was the oil or not. Carried through the "meat". The crispy beef was inconsistent also. Some was crispy while other pieces were soft and a little slippery even, also with the same chemical note. The hot tea was just slightly warm.

Wait staff was not very out going, very quiet. All neighboring tables treated the same. Like they were tired/sleepy.

Brought a friend to try the vegetarian experience. Not the best for the first time. Maybe it was just a bad night for them.

I eat at vegetarian restaurants across the country very frequently. Veggie Heaven doesn't place at the top of the list, but it's not at the bottom either.
