I gotta say that I was super disappointed to see how many menu options were NOT vegan. Given that it's an all-vegetarian restaurant and the Chinese/Asian food it serves doesn't traditionally call for dairy, it was upsetting to see that at least half the menu items had egg and/or dairy. After talking w/ a waitress, it seems like a lot of the dairy in the dishes comes from the veggie meat they use. I'm glad they're honest about the items not being vegan, but I wish they would opt for a vegan option.
Okay, as for my meal, my partner and I started with the taro spring rolls, which were absolutely delicious but they didn't taste noticeably of taro. Considering that I don't do mushrooms, which were in nearly all of the vegan items, I only had a couple options to chose from. I went with the "Sizzling Medallions", which was orange-flavored wheat gluten with string beans, asparagus, and mushrooms (which I asked to be left out). The wheat gluten had a good flavor, although the texture was a little tough, but I was disappointed that the dish was probably 90% protein and only 10% veggies. I prefer more veggies in my meal so I will likely opt for a more balanced dish next time. I did like, however, that the meal came with mixed grain rice, which was delicious.
My dining partner went with the curried Singapore noodles (which contained non-vegan ham), but given he is not a vegetarian, I was really glad he liked his dish so much. He also really liked my meal.
The service was prompt and polite, although one of the waiters pushed my sizzling, cast-iron plate onto the table too hard and it nearly flew onto my lap. Aside from that, it was good. I also spoke with one of the staff about working conditions, and while he said the owners can be strict, they are generally nice people and treat them well, which I notice is not the case in many NYC restaurants employing immigrants.
