    The butternut squash polenta is behind words, and the salad with pears is awesome. Try a delicious fresh juice. Stop by while on the Dherbs FULL BODY CLEANSE.

    I only had takeout but immediately fell in love! The butternut squash polenta is behind words, and my salad with grilled pears was divine. Can't wait to come back!

    Let’s talk waffles for a minute. Pancakes. How about French toast? Or, fine — just give me something that can be doused in maple syrup and whipped cream. The Red Lentil’s brunch menu has got all three Read more · August 4, 2014

    The aromatic, tender bean curd and its crisp edges are slightly spicy, and the grain salad is flecked with the tiniest pieces of bell and hot peppers, yellow squash, and zucchini. Read more · August 4, 2014

    This is the best food we have ever eaten. Period. My husband & I were so amazed w/ the quality & presentation of the meal that we honestly didnt feel wealthy enough to be eating it. GO! Youll love it.

    Ask your server about a suggested wine pairing with your dish. Our waiter recommended excellent wines by the glass that complemented the (fantastic) food beautifully.

    Had high hopes for this place but they fell short. Service was a little sub par (not by much thankfully) but I just feel that the food wasn't anything special. Glad Watertown has veg joint now though.

    Very good food, great place if you're starting a vegan diet and life style. There's food you would never think it tastes this good. I recommend the Mexican pizza

    Ask for Israel or Vlad. They will give you good recommendations!

    As an omnivore this vegan shepherd's pie blew me away. Lots of great options even for those that love meat.

    The dishes are aromatic. Take deep breaths to complete the flavors.

    I've been disappointed both times I've been here - menu looked more exciting than it was and none of the dishes I've had lived up to their fun descriptions: beet latke, nachos, shepard's pie

    The Gobi Manchurian is a must (chickpea battered spicy cauliflower) and so are the vegan desserts.

    Try the Gobi Manchurian - We were told that this is a must order and they were right, fabulous! $8

    Cracked a tooth on a supposedly pitted olive. They didn't even give a shit. Food is bad too.

    Red Lentil is vegan and vegetarian, but meat-eaters won’t feel like they’re missing out. The most talked-about menu item is the Gobi Manchurian – an the Indian version of Chinese food. Read more

    Vegetarian success! The must-haves are gobi Manchurian, smoothies, and the mizuna salad with pistachio-crusted tofu for the vegans, and the sweet-potato quesadilla for cheese-head vegetarians. Read more
