I'm there at least once a month for the monthly Boston Vegetarian Society meeting, and the food is 'very delicious' (in the words of one of my neighbors).

This place is all about the faux meats. It was interesting for that reason. But the dishes were about as bland as they come. The spring rolls are heavily breaded, oily, and mushy-- worse than frozen store bought versions. The dishes are bland and exactly what they say-- don't expect any extra vegetables tossed in for variety if they are not listed.

My friend who had never tried faux meat was completely convinced that there was actually beef in his dish. It was convincing--I think because it resembled the cheap Chinese food beef that only provides texture.

This is buffet quality food. However, I think it still has it's place. My omni friend who was interested in my diet as a vegan said afterwards veganism seemed easier than he previously thought. That in itself is worth one extra star.
