This is a vegan restaurant that offers an international cuisine. The food is good. The service is good. They use faux meat like soy chicken and seitan in their preparation. The portions are really huge and the price is very reasonable.
The decor is nothing fancy. Just a casual breakfast/brunch kind of place with an open kitchen. We first ordered the coconut noodle soup - rice noodles, tofu, spinach, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, pineapple, bean sprouts, oyster mushrooms, green onions and cilantro in the "cup" size. When he brought it to our table, we thought he had got the "bowl" instead of the "cup", but he grinned and said that's the "cup" of soup.

Such a huge bowl for $3.95.  Unfortunately, the flavor of coconut was so strong that it numbed the other spices. May be that is how it is supposed to be, you know. My bad, I expected it to taste a little different, Thai, more like. I poured in enough hot sauce to counter the coconut flavor.

Then, we ordered the Soy chicken shawarma with seasoned onions, tomatoes, hummus, hot sauce, pickles & tahini in a wrap, with a green salad with potatoes, eggplant and avocado.

Darn...why do they call it Shawarma? It was just a delicious huge wrap that came with a side of salad. The salad  had a very mild dressing and was fantastic. Having eaten authentic Shawarma sandwich , I expected this to be as good, but it was no where near a shawarma. I would call it Soy-chicken wrap. There, much better.
Next the Shish kebab - char-broiled vegetables with either tofu or seitan served with lemon-garlic sauce or peanut orange-miso sauce. choice of brown or basmati rice. We asked for basmati rice. This was fantastic.

The veggies were perfectly char broiled and very juicy. We rubbed the lemon juice on the Kebab and poured the sauces over it and wolfed it down with rice. The best kebab I have had so far.

This is a great restaurant for Vegetarian/Vegans, as they have a really huge menu to pick from. Just don't go by the names of the various dishes. Read the descriptions instead or even better, ask the waiter. You will not be disappointed!
