    A vegan mainstay, and, for a long time, was one of the city’s few true vegan dining options. If you can look past its kitschy website, you’ll find an almost overwhelming selection of veggie-based fare Read more

    Inexpensive lunch options include a main dish, soup, and choice of rice. Try the No Name: battered gluten in a sweet and sour sauce served with steamed vegetables and sesame seeds Read more

    This place has great vegan food. Try the lo mein and a hot cup of tea. Food is affordable and portions are generous so it's a great value.

    Vegan buffet WITH the Boston Vegetarian Society IF you attend the 4 pm talk - buffet - all the vegan food you care or dare to eat on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Read more

    Tea (hot our iced depending in the season) and water served with every meal. An app or two and an order of "no name" is plenty for two!

    #12 &#41. Bean cakes are a deep fried delight, and the vermicelli with veggie pork is comfort food at it's finest.

    The monthly vegan buffet with BVS (the Boston Vegetarian Society) is lots of fun; it's a vegan variety hour of many different things we enjoy.

    BVS is there most months on the 3rd Sunday afternoon at 4 pm with a free talk, followed by a vegan buffet for $10 each

    The NoName is clearly revered and loved but anyone who has frequented this place for the past decade can tell

    The No Name is great but I also recommend the #69. Easy to remember as well as delicious.

    I hate the no-name. Love the #15 app though. Their salad dressing is crazy good.

    No name is good, but it's gigantic. If you're eating for one, try a few appetizers.

    You absolutely have to order the No-Name off the specials menu; it’s gluten with a kind of General Tso’s-esque sauce & crunchy sesame seeds. Read more

    Wish they offered half portions. No Name is too much for one person to finish, your jaw gets tired from all the chewing.

    Best place to eat in the afternoon since Peace o'Pie doesn't open until 5pm in the winter. Yes, I got the No Name.

    I wanted something healthy not ladened in sauce or oil, so I got steamed vegetables. Huge mistake, it was 1.5 cups of frozen mixed vegetables tossed in boiling water and cost $10. Not worth it.

    No name is a classic. I also have a weakness for the chicken fingers. Long time grasshopper fan.

    The worst restaurant in the world. Really. Avoid the "no name", it is over hyped, but way too sweat. All other dishes are so so.

    Pretty greasy even though its vegan, don't eat leftovers in the morning or you'll feel sick

    Hmm. This food might taste ok, but the No Name is probably No Good for you. And chicken fingers are surrounded by fried dough. Belch
