Great food! It would be nice to have a beer or glass of wine with our meal, though.

My husband and I are hard-core vegans and had been dying to try this restaurant for quite a while. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed! The food was expensive and the portions were very small. The lettuce wraps for an appetizers were very small and tasteless. I ordered the raw burger, which could have been good, but the portion was tiny and there was no bun--only lettuce leaves! My husband ordered the manacotti dish which had no flavor and was also a very small portion. We both left the restaurant starving!
On the positive side, the restaurant has great ambience, a good wine and beer selection and the service wasn't too bad. Manala Tearoom just needs to get a better chef and make some improvements to the menu and portion size. If I, as a hard-core vegan don't want to come back--how are you going to attract non-vegans to your restaurant? You probably won't make it on just vegans alone.
