    Sobs noodles with peanut sauce appetizer

    Amy Rubin · December 6, 2014
  • Omri C.

    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.

    Omri Cohen · October 21, 2014
  • Isha G.

    Decent vegetarian thai food

    Isha Gujarati · September 5, 2014

    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.

    Christian Viveros · August 7, 2014

    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 · August 4, 2014

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

    Jenna Soares · June 12, 2014

    Everything is great!

  • Annah T.

    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.

    Annah Todd · December 8, 2013

    Get "No Name" dish & chicken fingers (Number 77 from menu)!

    Shailendra Mookim · October 4, 2013
  • Shailendra M.

    'No Name' & no. 77 are the best!

    Shailendra Mookim · October 4, 2013
  • Jon T.

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

    Jon Tyburski · September 12, 2013
  • Rae

    Portions are huge! Tempura is only so-so, pretty chewy.

    Rae · April 6, 2013
  • Jessica T.

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

    Jessica T · January 23, 2013
  • John D.

    The pizza place next door is vegan too.

    John Dwyer · December 27, 2012
  • Christine M.

    Not impressed. Service was horrible! Food was ok.

    Christine Martin · October 22, 2012
  • Sandeep A.

    "THE NO NAME" is the best!

    Sandeep Alluri · October 19, 2012

    The number 4 and the No Name

    Donnie · October 1, 2012
  • BU Today

    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

    BU Today · June 12, 2012

    Try no name most

    Chetana Sanghvi · May 20, 2012

    Great vegan restrent

    Chetana Sanghvi · May 20, 2012
  • David C.

    Good service. I don't think this food is healthy even though it is vegan.

    David Chevalier · April 20, 2012
  • Mary C.

    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

    Mary Chevalier · April 20, 2012

    The No Name is delicious!

    Heather · March 13, 2012
  • Sarah M.

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

    Sarah M. · February 24, 2012
  • Katie V.

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

    Katie Valdivia · February 21, 2012

    My roommate and I both got wicked food poisoning from the hot & sour soup..stay away or you will be sorry

    jensie · February 6, 2012
  • Jenna L.

    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!

    Jenna Levine · January 28, 2012
  • Paul L.

    The "No Name" is so good it doesn't need a name.

    Paul Lurie · December 30, 2011
  • Craig S.

    Split the no name with a friend! (ITS HUGE!)

    Craig Silva · December 1, 2011
  • Jessica [.

    It doesn't need a name

    Jessica [^.^] · November 23, 2011
  • Maynard C.

    No one knows anyone else here UNLESS they're here for the Boston Vegetarian Society's monthly educational seminar. THEN everyone is REALLY CHUMMY !!

    Maynard Clark · October 15, 2011
  • Paul H.

    "The No Name" for life!

    Paul H. · September 10, 2011
  • Dan B.

    Best vegi food in Town! BBQ Pork is very tasty!

    Dan B · August 21, 2011
  • Maynard C.

    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

    Maynard Clark · August 20, 2011
  • Richard M.

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

    Richard McLaughlin · July 11, 2011
  • Maynard C.

    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

    no name fills the sesame chicken void left from my meat eating days. jasmine tea is awesome.

    Andrea D · March 13, 2011
  • Maynard C.

    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.

    Maynard Clark · February 3, 2011
  • Maynard C.

    Love it! The Boston Vegetarian Society (BVS) goes here monthly.

    Maynard Clark · February 3, 2011
  • CityRover M.

    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

    CityRover Media · January 6, 2011
  • Sonia M.

    Since everyone else is recommending the no name, I'll put in a finger-lickin' recommendation for the fresh vermicelli rolls!

    Sonia Miller · December 31, 2010
  • Sarah B.

    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.

    Sarah Brooks · December 6, 2010
  • Ryan P.

    No name and chicken fingers.

    Ryan Piccirillo · September 11, 2010
  • Lucy D.

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

    Lucy Drummond · July 8, 2010
  • Brandy T.

    Everyone must try No Name! Best dish I've eaten in a very long time.

    Brandy Thomas · June 10, 2010
  • Allison

    Get the veggie chicken fingers!

    Allison · June 4, 2010
  • Frank

    The No Name is the best! Followed closely by the "chicken" fingers.

    Frank · May 24, 2010
