This place is pretty good, although I admit I have only eaten here about three times. I have sat on the patio each time, maybe I'll try sitting inside one of these days. My favorite dish is the Jackfruit Salad; they do it up right. The location is probably the biggest drawback for me, as I'm just not into the whole Main Street HB thing. What keeps me from rolling here more often is that my wife just isn't a fan of the place.

I love Bodhi Tree. The food is fantastic and they treat you like you're family (especially Huong!!!) The first night we arrived in HB was Thanksgiving 2010 around 8pm. Everything was closed. We were scared that we would have to scrounge something up in WalMart. That would have been scary. And then we saw Bodhi Tree. It was like a beacon in the night... the lights were still on, so we parked and went in. They were breaking down their Thanksgiving buffet and getting ready to head home, but they were so gracious and offered to serve us everything they had on the buffet! The plates of food kept coming and everything was amazing. From the incredible faux turkey and ham to the mashed potatoes with gravy to the cornbread with maple butter (OMG) to the soup, salad, veggies and tons of desserts, everything was so delicious. Made us feel like we were home, when we hadn't even moved in yet!

We went back for Christmas eve since we couldn't fly home to be with our families, and it was soooo good.

I also love their non-holiday menu as well. Their thai coconut soup is one of my favorite soups ever. The jackfruit salad is awesome. And my husband has a hard time not ordering the sizzling beef every time (in fact, he does order it every time)! The grilled vegetable skewers, shrimp spring rolls, sizzling rice, orange peel chicken and hot and sour soup are also among our favs.

The desserts are so yummy too. The bread pudding and tiramisu are wonderful and taste even better than their non-vegan counterparts, probably because you know you're eating a dessert that comes from a place of love and compassion! :-)

We've also had great experiences at their special sunday brunches and are looking foward to the next one!

All in all, I highly recommend Bodhi Tree to everyone!!! Even our non-vegan friends have loved it!
