    get the grilled oyster mushrooms- tastes just like Eataly Birreria's fried shiitake mushrooms.

    Curry Noodle soup at lunch! $12. It's gigantic and perfect for the winter.

    Mediocre food with no spicy. Nice environment. You can do better.

    Ian Plosker · November 23, 2013
  • Akansha S.

    The bean curd is to die for. Go during lunch and you get a side of mashed potatoes with it for free!

    Akansha Sharma · September 22, 2013

    Be more knowledgeable about the food and chill on the oil.

    "Gobo is a favorite of not only Joshua but many New Yorkers alike. Stop in for a quiet lunch or come for dinner when the space is crowded and lively."

  • Pamela R.

    Braised tofu in black bean sauce is a must - so delicious. The yam fries were just ok but could probably be fixed with a little salt!

    Pamela R. · February 3, 2013
  • Dorothy H.

    Get the roti canal!

    Dorothy Hsu · January 26, 2013

    Get the hot spiced bean curd with red onions from the small dishes menu. It's amazing for vegetarians and omnivores alike. So yummy, with great texture.

    If you don't get the yam fries, you stupid.

    Paula Askalsky · December 22, 2012

    Gobo is a favorite of not only Joshua but many New Yorkers alike. Stop in for a quiet lunch or come for dinner when the space is crowded and lively.

  • Rhea D.

    NE rolls were the only thing worth it! The spore mai fan n vietnamese noodle were doused in oil n tasteless. Go to Soy & sake or Bloom cafe if u really want gud tasty Vegan food in the City.

    Svinbra veganmat. Ät något seitan-baserat.

    Leo N-B · July 8, 2012

    Even better than Charlie Mom's. Two NYC locations to choose from, West Village and Upper East Side.

  • Asen K.

    The butternut squash risotto wasn't all that great. The hummus was delicious. The server looked like she was a bit annoyed.

    Asen Kochov · March 19, 2012

    This place is amazing! I feel like vegan food tends to taste the same at most restaurants, but the food here has unique, tasty favors. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    great vegetarian for people afraid of food with a face on it.

    John Leguizamo · October 16, 2011
  • Ben B.

    Pass on the Bejing-style seitan. Flavorless and rubbery.

    Great vegan option for a meal in the village. A bit too dark for a lunch break though!
