A large group of us went to Chambers for an anniversary. My sister-in-law had called ahead to warn them vegans were coming (my husband and I), but the message had gotten lost or neglected. However, once there Chambers was extremely accommodating, paying special attention to my husband and I by bringing out a series of small tastings during the whole evening. First was a watermelon palette cleanser, then their fresh pea soup in a tall shot glass, then portobello and avocado sashimi (to match the fish sashimi the rest of the group ordered), followed by an entree. My husband and I actually did not order, the chef just made us two separate dishes. My husband ended up with the crispy tofu. If you order this, specify that you are vegan because they normally fry it in the same fryer that they fry meat. They fried it separately for him without us even having to ask. For me, I got a vegetable and noodle curry bowl which was fantastic.
After this, they brought out some chocolates for the table, but none were vegan, so they brought my husband and I three of their sorbets, all of which were amazing. The four omnivores at the table were jealous of us the whole evening. I can't say what it all cost (we weren't paying that evening), but if you are looking for a high-end, fancy, vegan dinner, definitely go here.
My husband and I end up here most weekends for lunch, The food is great, the vegetables are fresh and they have a ton of vegan / vegetarian options. The owners are really friendly and the service is quick.
I'm giving it 5 stars based entirely on their vegan scones. I try vegan scones everywhere they are available, and I have yet to find scones that are as authentic or good as these. You can even order them to take to brunches / breakfasts, which is a great way to share great vegan food with no-vegans and not have to bake a thing.
Great vegan cheesecake, however since they moved, you have to special order vegan cheesecakes and the only place in town to get it by the slice is Galactic Pizza.
However, I special ordered a cheesecake for a wedding I was in (I hate not eating cake with everyone else at weddings), and the cheesecake was entirely gone at the end of the reception.
I love Namaste. I love that they use organic and local ingredients, and their selection of vegan curries. They are always delicious, fresh, and flavorful. The atmosphere is really comfortable and cozy. They sometimes have sorbet, if you're looking for vegan dessert too.
