Rude server

I just left the restaurant and ordered my food to go. (It was soup) I drove 2 blocks away, and the entire container of broth opened up inside my car. I do understand people are scared because of the pandemic, but I called the restaurant back as soon as I could pull over and explained what happened. When I returned I brought inside my leaking bag of broth and veggies. I asked the woman who worked inside if she could repackage the veggies. She said “no.” I then asked for a refund, and she replied “no again.” I told her that was not right because I have not touched my food, I drove 2 blocks away, it spilled, and now I cannot eat my food. She gets angry with me. I tell her I have a meeting in 30 minutes, and this really is not cool nor is it fair. I asked her to please repackage me food. She goes into the back slams my food down on the back counter. Then comes back out wiping off my container of noodles and veggies, and I told her that I would never return . She tells me “good and block this number.!” I also told her that I would leave a review that explained her behavior.

I never touched the food. I drove 2 blocks away. It spilled all over my car. I will never return to that restaurant. As I said I understand that there is a pandemic going on, but I never even touched my food. She was rude and very nasty to me. I will admit by the end of the encounter I was pretty angry. Especially after I mentioned again that I had a meeting, and she mocked me. This place does not deserve my money or anyone else’s money. The woman was beyond rude. I am so angry. This same review will be going on Yelp as well. I have never been treated like this in a restaurant.

I would like to add that before this I enjoyed their food. I appreciated how she handled my cc. She didn’t actually touch my card. She used a cloth or napkin to handle it and hand it back to me. I was so happy, but the return trip ruined that and previous experiences and meals that I had from there.

Pros: Presentation of food, Portions, During pandemic server used napkin to hold cc

Cons: Rude server/owner, Server mocks customers to their faces (me), Treated many other Black customers similarly

Terrible service

Made an order for ALL vegan food. Checked the boxes for ALL vegan food. My order arrived with eggs in it. Called the restaurant and got the run around about getting my money back or exchanging the fried rice for vegan fried rice. The lady, waitress who is always there, says, “we won’t exchange it.” Not the first time either. Another time I had pork in vegan food that I ordered. I left a review, they never even apologized, nothing. The woman, waitress is rude. Demanded larger tips from us when we physically went in person and tried to humiliate us in front of other customers. (Also, my sons food was late and they had to fix his meal because they messed it up while we were there.) The crappy part is that we forgot our card that day and didn’t realize it until it was time to pay. We left all of our cash. Enough to pay and a few extra dollars. But it wasn’t good enough and she threw that in my face on the phone when I asked if we could exchange or be refunded for the fried rice that arrived with egg in it. I would never recommend this place again. There is no accountability when it comes to messing up orders and she blames the customers for it. We ordered our last meal from them tonight. And it’s too bad because we are weekly customers feeding four people.

Vegan Thai Food!

I've tried every vegan option on this little menu and can say literally everything is a hit. My faves are definitely the panang curry with just veggies, veggie gyoza, "crab" cakes, and the pumpkin empanadas.

Note that with the build-your-own noodle bowls - when they say "spicy", THEY MEAN IT! The medium recently brought me to tears and I'm generally NOT that sensitive to heat. Tread carefully through that spice scale and you'll be fine.

Pros: Amazing flavor, Clear labeling

Many vegan options

Cute, little place with a very knowledgeable and sweet staff. There are many vegan options, and not just the typical vegan stuff — they have crab cakes, empanadas, mock-tails, etc. The panang is awesome and so is the vegan appetizer set. The soup is yummy and portions are large. Love this place!

Pros: Vegan items are marked, Staff is very knowledgeable about vegans, Lots of vegan options

So many vegan options!

Huge list of vegan options on the menu and also specials hanging on the wall. The pumpkin empanada is one of the best things my husband and I have ever had. Tofu paradise entree - veggies, tofu, rice with a soy gravy - was so delicious too. Highly highly recommend!

Great Veg Friendly Restaurant!

They have vegan notation on menu so you don't have to ask and there is no confusion between servers. They have really yummy vegan specials like Mac and cheese and cookies!

Pros: almost everything can be made vegan , options for both Omni's and vegans

I had the vegan mix appetizer and panang tofu. It was great! Service was fast. There are some cute shops and galleries nearby. Can't wait to go back!
