i used to work at the 2nd moon, so i felt i had to disagree with the review that cites "sketchy labor practices". the owners of the 2nd Moon (they own the Blue Moon on Lake St. as well) are very involved in the community and donate coffee, etc. to all sorts of progressive and neighborhood events and causes, and are really great women to work for. i would also say that almost half of their coffee is fair trade and/or organic, which isn't perfect but better than most...
p.s. the vegan peanut butter chocolate rice krispie bars are made with brown rice syrup, not honey, unless French Meadow changed their ingredients very recently.

This is one of those ethnic restaurants that is in a depressing and unappealing stripmall, but more than makes up for it with its excellent food. This is one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to (and in suburban Ohio, whod've thunk?). All vegetarian, tons of vegan options and a relatively friendly staff. Affordable.
