A variety of southeast Asian cuisines at good prices

Spice Island Tea House features a number of southeast Asian cuisines, as well as a great selection of loose leaf teas. The servers know what can or cannot be made vegetarian or vegan. It's located right near the University, so be prepared for a short wait, especially around lunch time.

I have never been dissapointed with Spice Island's food. Great atmosphere and lots of vegan options.

Decent selection of vegan entrees, and they're willing to veganize those that aren't. There are only a few dishes with shrimp paste or fish sauce, and they're marked on the menu and can be requested without.

Spice Island usually has soy milk available to substitute for real milk in the Thai Iced Tea.

The prices are reasonable, overall, BUT, they charge 50 cents to substitute tofu for meat in dishes, which is insane, considering tofu is a fraction of the cost, per pound, of meat.
