The food is good, but the menu is difficult to navigate. Since they reopened, the best dishes I have had were daily specials (pizza, vegetable patties). I would order those again if they were on the menu.

The raw cheesecake was wonderful, but the cupcake was terrible - like they put flavoring in frosting over a dry cake.

This was okay, but nothing special. I had a potato & tofu wrap. It had a good flavor, but I'm not a huge wrap fan. They advertise pasta on their website, but there's no warning that they only have gluten-free brown rice pasta. Damn you hippies and your irrational gluten aversion!

My wife ordered the pasta puttanesca. I'm not sure if they screwed up the order or they just don't know what puttanesca is. I think that the person who took our order may have thought she wanted the primavera. Either way, it wasn't that good. There was no real sauce to speak of, just some cooked veggies, of which about 90% were carrots. Even if this was primavera it was pretty lame.

I'd go back and try something else, but there's so many places in Phoenix that are better.

I've been struggling to find meatless dining alternatives that I crave. I had the tofu/beans wrap with halume. OMG - was absolutely fantastic! I'll be going there tonight to get take-out.

Good, not great. A nice place to stop by for lunch.

The location was great, so I had to stop in. I tried it twice to make a fairer judgment. First I had the lunch special, which was a pita with falafel, fries on the side, and a drink. The falafel was dry enough that I had to drink a lot of liquid while eating, but still it was distinctly better than the falafel at the nearby, established Phoenicia Cafe. They gave me a very generous portion of good fries. Second I had the cauliflower potato wrap, which was delicious. It might be too salty for a few people. In both cases the food was messy to eat, so I don't recommend taking a date here. The prices also seemed steep given that the ingredients could be had for about 25 cents, but compared to the restaurants in the area the pricing is better than average.

The salad bar and side bar are poorly labeled, so if you aren't sure what something is, you'll have to ask. I was wrongly instructed by two employees (one each time) as to whether items were vegan or not; perhaps they had not been adequately trained as the restaurant was newly opened. Time will tell whether that improves.

Stopped in within days of Tsom's opening. Nice, airy, casual, clean. The falafel pocket was outstanding, though not my idea of "spicy," as it was labelled. Mine arrived with grilled onion and tomato, and even then I was directed to the "falafel bar" where lots more items and sauces were available to add on. There was a "cold item" bar where lentil salad, greens, (wonderful) hummus and many other items could be heaped (or not) onto a plate and purchased by weight (great for adjusting portions). The house iced tea contained a delicious blend of spices. This is not a fancy place serving fancy food, and they don't bill it as such. For well made, delicious, nutritious, pick-your-portion, pick-your-preference, vegetarian/vegan food, it is my favorite. I can't wait to go back

In addition to the salad bar, the cook-to-order hot food menu is good. The coconut sweet potato soup was amazing! Delicious falafel bar. Nice staff (one of them is vegan for sure) and good service.
