i've only visited it once since i've become a vegetarian so take my review with a grain of salt.
i found the number of vegetarian selections to be a bit limited. i've always liked their sandwiches and soups and they only had two sandwiches which were veggie. in all fairness, i really didn't look at the salad choices. i got a soup and sandwich combo and the sandwich was large, tasty and quite filling. the tomato soup tangy and delicious.
Warning - as per the previous review - their bread has a very hard crust and takes a bit away from the enjoyment of the sandwich (unless of course, you love hard, crusty breads) and you might want to request your sandwich on a softer bread.
it's a nice lunch stop.
i would rate it excellent, but because of veggie selection, i'm taking away a star.
I've been here three times in the last couple of weeks and find the food to be basic, hearty and quite good. Price is extremely reasonable (i added an extra star for that) and it's worthwhile to take advantage of the buy 5 - get a 6th meal for free - so you get 6 meals for $54 (tax included).
Staff is very helpful and welcoming. It's an unusual ambience - serene, quite (it's adjacent to a Hari Krishna center) and comfortable dining experience.
The restaurant has all you can eat buffet style, basic vegetarian selections. Soup is excellent and choices are decent, tasty and will satisfy you, but nothing fancy (lasagna, mac/cheese, etc). I do keep on coming back again and again.
Be sure to see the amazing Koi pond and Peacock sanctuary in the back.
Well worth the visit.
I'm in Tucson for a month and was told this was a really nice vegetarian restuarant. I've been here twice, so far, and find the cuisine, menu, service, staff and ambience outstanding. loved the route 66 burger - delicious! I also had the fried chicken and it was very good - but not as tasty as the veggie burger.
