I think that this is the best vegetarian buffet on Devon. They have all of the staples, mutter paneer, fresh naan, soups, salads, and dessert. It's laid back, the owner is a gem, and I like to support businesses with an interest in ethics.
One of the very best restaurants of all time!
Lake Side has great food, but their funky hours are a turn off.
Mana is my new favorite! Nestled in the busy boutique lined streets of Chicago's Wicker Park, the simple menu vastly understates the impact of the dishes. Everything is just right. The food is fresh, flavorful, and completely vegetarian (unlike several other proposed veg-restaurants, sneeze green zebra). The wait staff is laid back, the furnishings are eco-friendly, and the prices are perfect!
Completely completely completely disappointed. I was expecting so much more from this vegan, purported 'healthy,' restaurant. First of all, there's nothing healthy about over-processed vegetables and tofu. Secondly, the food was absolutely aweful...and I'm not exaggerating. I ordered 'buffalo wings' which turned out to be soggy fried tofu with a splash of a watery 'buffalo' sauce. The fries were fries, and my chocolate chip cookie dough shake tasted like a bland chocolate shake. Granted, I have high expectations, having had the delicious Temptations based shakes of the The Chicago Diner and 'drumsticks' of vegan-haven Food Swings in Williamsburg, but there are no excuses when it comes to poorly made vegan fast food. If things couldn't get worse, the service was poor and the place was so cold we had to sit with our full winter gear in place. I've said my peace.
