Friendly staff in a low-key cafeteria-style restaurant, serving tasty inexpensive meals. With an eastern flair.

The food was excellant, the atmosphere is eclectic & warm. It did take a little longer than expected for our food to be delivered, but was well worth the wait. The menu was extensive from the usual pad thai to uncommon thai dishes.

Very good eclectic southern menu. Atmosphere was cozy artsy. Friendly service. Prices are reasonable. I went with a menu selection, but was eyeing the buffet, which was less expensive. The food was prepared with great care & detail.
Highly recommend to visit this restaurant.

The atmosphere is cozy & borderline fine dining/romantic. I thought the baba ghanouj was excellent. The wait staff will work with you if you don't find the exact combination of appetizers on a platter listed in the menu. Service can be quite speedy.

Comfortable atmosphere with friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating staff. I had the tempeh Reuben with chipotle pepper on the side. The Reuben was quite good, but I didn't care for the chipotle (lucky it was on the side!).

Fabulous Indian food with almost all of it being vegan. Everything is sold by the pound so you get a chance to try a little of everything. I especially recommend the potato dumplings, the cold chickpea salad, and the spicy cauliflower and potatoes. Paper plates are out for serving your food on, but in the back there are glass plates and real silverware for those concerned with limiting waste. Just be sure to wash up after yourself when you are done! We drive over an hour to eat here each time and it is well worth it!

Typical vegetarian/vegan food. The food was kind of bland with no real flair to the meals, but the fresh juices were amazing, especially the honeydew melon juice. The service was nothing to die for either.

Excellent soups, lentil was yummy with a bit of a kick, split chickpea was also exceptional. Unfortunately neither are staples on the menu. The greek pasta was quite flavorful & the staff was accomodating with my vegan requests.

Taste of Thai in Lansing, Michigan

It's Thai food, but all the vegetarian dishes are oddly similar. The owner/employees don't speak english very well, so it's hard to know if some items are vegan or not.

Good food, with a well rounded menu to appeal to many tastes. Wait staff is accommodating with special food requests. Sometimes the service can take a little while though.

Inexpensive meals with a large selection of vegan dishes. The cauliflower sandwiches are great, as are the samosas.

Taj Mahal Cuisine of India in Lincoln, Nebraska

The food was great! I loved the numerous selection of dishes & that they prepared traditional meat based dishes with mock meat. A+ for originality!
When we were done the owner came by our table to say hello (which we observed he made a point to do with every table, many of which knew him by name), & chat with us. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is in the area or passing through.

This outlet doesn't have as much selection as the other two, but they are upgrading the kitchen to try & offer all the same items as the other locations.

Very good meals with a nice large selection of vegetarian dishes. Portions are not small either.

Veganopolis in Portland, Oregon

I tried the breakfast (during the week) & was disappointed. The selection for breakfast was limited to a breakfast sandwich, wrap, or a bowl of granola. Unless you consider a muffin or bagel an adequate meal to start the day. Speaking of which, the muffins were the only reasonable priced item at $1.75, as opposed to $4.25 for a bagel with Tofutti vegan cream cheese! They don't offer fresh made juices. The breakfast wrap was bland at $5.50, tofu scrambled with spices, nothing else. The side of potatoes had been sitting under a heat lamp for way to long making them dry & overcooked.
I took the plunge & decided to try them again on the weekend for breakfast. The 'buffet' is an improvement. The food had a little more flavor & selection. The waffles had been sitting under the heat lamps for a while so they were a bit dry. The value of the meal was a lot better, due to the price being based on weight.
I have not tried any of the lunch sandwiches, which there are quite a few, & they do sound very appealing.

I find myself always comparing other restaurants to Ya Hala, & have only found a few to come close.

Warm & cozy atmosphere, with great food & friendly staff. The best Ethiopian food I've had. It is a BYOB establishment with a corkage fee of $2.50 per bottle.
