I used to love this restaurant. On my most recent visit, I found that it just isn't great anymore. I ordered an appetizer and asked for it with no bell peppers, due to an allergy. It arrived full of peppers. I also ordered a quesadilla...More

The Gobi Manchurian is my favorite, and a staple on the menu. The menu, including brunch, is very broad and they are also knowledgeable and responsible about food allergies. Their desserts (mostly vegan) are really tasty and they have a surprising beer list (cans only)...More

This is a very small restaurant that also does take out so unless you get there early expect a wait. On the other hand, it is worth the wait. The food is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. Plenty of parking available on the surrounding streets.

I am not a vegetarian or vegan. I am not big on this type of food. My wife absolutely loves this place and wants to eat there often. I have had good food but it is not my first choice.

Big carnivore, but didn't need meat tonight. Great alternatives with creative recipes that are great for sharing. Nice little atmosphere and great selection of beer/ciders/wine.

Amazing food! I had the paella, and tasted my friend’s shepherds pie (possibly even better than the paella!). Some of the best vegetarian food I’ve had!
