  • Well it looks like it is ready for the Supervegan Graveyard. My girlfriends lives around the corner from them and while stopped at a light I noticed they had a bunch of campaign posters taped to the outside of the window and a sheriff/marshal sticker on their door.
    Didn't get out and see what it said, but I guess they didn't make it.
    Sad because the premise was good, but the food, service, and prices didn't live up to the promise.

  • Went to this place with my and wife and son a while back. Service was pretty awful. Waitress was nice, but getting anything took a looooong time. Food was so so. I have no recollection what I ate there. Not bad just not memorable. Not worth making the trip again (from Astoria).
    There was a tall table at the front when you walk in that is out of place and in the way. Bad feng shui. It seemed like the owner and freinds were sitting there. They seemed out of place.
    The place was sunny and bright. Intresting pool room in the back, may be good for small parties. eh.

  • Enjoyed a late lunch here couple weeks back, choosing buffet this time. great space for sizable party or event. They have a great space tucked away for private parties (capacity 35).

    My lunch was broccoli with seitan (very good), eggplant tomato stew ('s ok), fried rice (uh needs refinement: smaller & less yellow onion), zucchini was baked moist & wonderful with light garlic slivers. Soup was enjoyable - a lentil, split pea & white bean with tomato base. Their mixed field greens with carrot stripstix was quite good too.

    Love them to finesse, refinement & return for special events/meetups.

  • Oh, I think we should leave it up and let our readers make up their own minds. This reviews section pretty much says it all.
  • Review by JasonB on November 21, 2008:

  • I hate to say it, but I think it's time to remove this restaurant from the SuperVegan website.... Now that I think about it, I didn't hate saying that at all.
    Who's with me???

  • How stupid do you have to be? At least register a few days in advance and review a few other restaurants before you post your bullshit fake reviews.

    I wish I could rate this restaurant a "0" to counter all the liars. Maybe this restaurant is actually good, but I'll never know because these fake reviews have inspired me to NEVER GO HERE.

  • Dinner for two: Our initial perception of the atmosphere was soothing and comfortable, it was exactly what we were looking for. After being guided to our seats by the friendly wait staff, which never stopped smiling, we read over the elaborate menu and our server explained to us the differences between tribal and neo-tribal choices.

    We started with the Apache Desert salad, which had a very refreshing minty dressing and was obviously FRESH! As well as the Indigenous People, which caught my eye immediately, the grilled cactus and caramelized fennel was a unique blend of flavors.

    After we made our friendly server explain most of the dishes, we chose our entrees which included the Tribal Ocean, the curry was delicious and not too spicy. As well as the Volcano heart which warmed us up right away. The food was obviously fresh, it did not taste like cheap frozen vegetables, the service was really good, our server complimented our every dish with the organic wines that were offered. Our server was knowledgable and not overwhelming with annoyance, unlike many other servers in the Queens area.

    Overall Tierra Sana was not overly expensive for the unique cuisine experience, I would DEFINATELY COME BACK and enjoy it again. Thanks so much Tierra Sana for some authentic native food.

  • I dont know. Something seems off about this last review as well. Maybe it's paranoia because of what happened, but this review seems a little to perfect. Just the right amount of casualness, but essentially the same sentiments from the phony reviews.....
  • Review by clarise on November 19, 2008:

  • I love the food and the dessert,specially their salads and their cheeseless cheese cake. My 21 and 23 year old sons also enjoy their meals and said they would like to come back.I wish them success and hope that one day they open another restaurant by me in Long Island.

  • Review by jlh269 on November 13, 2008:

  • I actually live near this restaurant. I have never eaten inside, but I have gotten take out. Here's my real thoughts on their food:
    They have an odd menu where they offer more dishes during the day on weekdays than than do in the evening and weekends. That alone, makes no sense to me b/c I would think more people would be eating there on nights and weekends and would like more variety. My husband and I ordered some veggie sushi, eggplant stew and smoothies. I was not a fan of the veggie sushi b/c it had quinoa instead of rice and was wrapped loosely and fell apart. I love quinoa, but you had to hunt through the quinoa to see the fillings. I was not a fan of the smoothies b/c they had pieces of almond at the bottom, which was not pleasant to drink. BUT the eggplant stew was delicious. There web site makes it seem like they are trying to be a major veg-friendly presence in Forest Hills. I commend the effort, since Forest Hills itself is not very vegan friendly, but I am disappointed that the food wasn't better and that the menu offerings are limited the only times I'm home to eat them.

  • Review by champurrado on November 8, 2008:

  • Seriously, this is so cheesy that the owners of this restaurant tried to flood the comments with fake reviews!! (they all sound the same and have ridiculous talking points, by the way, and the 'reviewers' all joined on the same day and have only left this one review). Do they think we're fools? It kind of undermines the point of these reviews and star system. Maybe supervegan can come up with a way to 'flag' or remove fake reviews.
  • Review by thoroughlymodernmillie711 on November 8, 2008:

  • Tierra Sana is the best addition to Forest Hills & Queens. Where can one find nutritious organic, vegan, & vegetarian food that tastes great? The variety of dishes, smoothies, and teas never becomes tiresome. The service is prompt and the staff is personable. Tierra Sana echoes the neighborhood's former "mom & pop" feel, since customers are greeted on a first name basis, and it's family-operated. One can get cozy by the fireplace, dine on couches, or in the lounge or dining area. I enjoy listening to the live entertainment on weekend evenings, which is very soothing and inspirational. It is an all around perfect place, and I will continue to be a devoted customer.

  • The shills look like they are out in force on this one today. This pretty much guarantees I'll never dine there. Eff them.
  • Review by Fausto on November 7, 2008:

  • I am not vegan; however when I eat in Tierra Sana, I don't miss eating meat.
    The flavor of their food is excellent. I have tried soups, salads, special plates, deserts, and their shakes (I love them)
    The atmosphere is relaxing and usually that is what I am looking for.
    The service is good. No matter where you are; there is always a room for improvement.
    Considering that they are new to the business they have developed several projects to bring people together as one community.

  • Review by Beatriz on November 7, 2008:

  • I am not vegetarian, but I have enjoyed Tierra Sana's food. I have been there several times. I took my children (19, 17, and 13) few times and they love it. As a parent, I know how hard it is to find a place where you pay for the food and children actually eat; well Tierra Sana is “a place” for my family. My son loves the Texas taco; my youngest daughter prefers a multi grain pizza; their salads always are fresh and their dressings are very tasty and different. Tierra Sana’s food is unique. The owners are committed to provide their customers and the community an excellent service and they always welcome suggestions, ideas, and critics.

  • Review by queensvegan on November 7, 2008:

  • I am a vegan but I went to Tierra Sana knowing that they do not serve EXCLUSIVELY vegan foods. Everything there is vegetarian and most items on the menu are vegan. I have gone there for lunch, brunch and dinner several times. The staff is wonderful, and welcome any suggestions. Every time I have gone I have seen at least one of the owners there and they are always eager to her what I have to say. The food is fantastic, expressing an array of cultures and flavors. The atmosphere is cool, calm and green, which makes it a wonderful place to have a relaxing, healthy meal. Overall, I am in love with this place and when I take clients there for a meal or for refreshments, they end up loving it too.

  • Just a follow up on this review.
    I have not returned there yet but i forwarded this review to the email address on their website and the owner wrote back. Saying he shared the review with his staff and they are working to improve their service and the quality of their food . He also mentioned some specifics about the food and ideas and changes. It is hard to tell from an email but I sensed he appreciated the feedback and would strive to make changes. I will post another review after I eat their next.
  • Review by RichBeBe on July 18, 2008:

  • Living in the neighborhood it took me longer than it should have to eat here and I really want it to succeed. But I am not sure it will.
    I went there the other night with a friend and I was confused by it's dual menu's running at the same time. Sitting at the same table you can order from their lower priced lounge menu or their higher priced dinner menu.
    The place has a great vibe and it really big and nicely decorated. I think they should make it more of a lounge in the front and fine dining in the rear but that is just my opinion.

    The waitress was pleasant but seemed to either be new at waiting tables or not good at it. She delivered water but not take a drink order. After a bit she came to take our dinner orders and we ordered drinks then. She didn't seem attentive and when she took out empty drink glasses there was never a mention of if we wanted another drink. Seemed odd, not rude just not great service.

    We ordered a mescaline salad from the lounge menu which was good and had an excellent dressing.
    We also ordered a soy chorizo appetizer which was not vegan since it came with a pomegranate yogurt. We ordered the yogurt on the side since my friend is vegetarian and it was very bland. She said the yogurt added nothing to the dish and this was way overpriced at $16 for a bland appetizer.
    For dinner we both ordered from the Tribal Kitchen menu. Both dishes were good but not worth the $26 and $28 dollar price tag.
    Overall I was disappointed with the service, and the price of the food for the value. I gave the food a 3 since the dinners were good, even though the appetizer wasn't.
    If there was a value rating it would be a 1.
    I will return and try a panini or something and hope that their lower priced menu is worth it. If not it will be a shame since there is such promise and it is in my neighborhood.
