I went here a couple years ago and was not impressed by the food. With so many other vegetarian options in the East Bay, I probably won't go back. They serve a variety of food from different food traditions (Thai, Greek, etc). I went here with friends so I tried three dishes. The Pad Thai was not as good as that available at most Thai restaurants (it came with tomato sauce or a really thick peanut-buttery peanut sauce, both of which tasted a little odd with the dish ). The moussaka was good though.
Delicious South Indian vegetarian food. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, and they have a liquor license (for those of you who drink). Please be aware that they don't take credit cards, and don't have an ATM on site(there is one nearby) so make sure to bring cash.
This place is really cute, and the menu shows some good potential veggie and vegan options. I got the seitan and chips- the chips (fries) were great, but the fried seitan was too chewy. If I go back, I'll try the buffalo gals based on these other reviews.
I'm really worried that when I move to Chicago, I'm going to blow all of my money on vegan milkshakes. They are just too delicious. Also, the non-dairy cream of cauliflower soup last weekend was phenomenal!
Fasika is a really fantastic restaurant- I recommend the veggie sampler, which I was told is all vegan. The injera (the bread- which is fabulous) is also vegan. With the sampler, you get a great assortment of flavorful and spicy dishes laid out on a large piece of injera and you get as much of the stuff as you want on the side, so it's really fun to eat (if you've never eaten Ethiopian food before, you pick up the food with small pieces of injera). I recommend sharing the sampler with one or two other people because it is so big.
