- This place has no business calling themselves VEGAN. I luckily noticed the Soy Cheese Wontons have dairy. This makes me wonder, what exactly is in the Soy Cheese Wontons I've been eating at Dao Palate, the "Vegan" restaurant under the same ownership? Ugh!

- Yummy food, cozy and restful setting. Slip into one of their wooden booths and forget your daily cares… Their vegan Thai iced tea tasted a bit off, maybe just a personal preference. The Jap-Chae korean potato noodles were surprisingly filling and mixed with various tasty veggies and mushrooms. The coconut-rice with raisins was a little dry, but fine. What really knocked my socks off was the pumpkin soup – the chunks of hot pumpkin melt in your mouth, mixed with sweet potato, white beans & cilantro. PERFECT on a chilly day. And their peanut butter bomb is a tantalizing, albeit super filling, way to cap off a great meal.
FYI this applies to their Cobble Hill location, but seems like it could apply to all their locales - their soy cheese is NOT vegan, it has casein (milk product) in it. It's not marked on the menu as such, I had to ask for them to read their soy cheese label. They were happy to do so, but I just wanted to warn anyone having (for example) the soy cheese-stuffed wontons at a "vegan" restaurant. There was also an item marked as having whey (milk product) and you should specify whether your thai iced tea/coffee is made vegan or non-vegan. Hope this helps!

- I went for lunch the other day. It was good but nothing special. The veggies were fresh but not cooked very well, the 'chicken' was a bit pre packaged, and the 'sauce' on the sweet and sour was nothing special. Overall ok, but no better than the standard. The space is nice and servers great through. And from the looks of it the tea is Yogi.

- Had dinner last night and enjoyed it very much. I got the Scallion Pancakes with Mango Salsa, followed by the Bi Bim Bop with a side of Pumpkin Soup, followed by the Double Chocolate Brownie with a scoop of Vanilla Soy Ice Cream. My friend got the Yam & Taro Tempura, followed by the Black Pepper Seitan, followed by the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. The food was tasty, the beer was cold, and the waitress was friendly. Nuff said.

- Just had lunch at Wild Ginger, the Pan-Asian Vegan on Smith Street. What great place! Beautiful, spacious, comfortable interior. Communal, booth or cozy table seating. Friendly, attentive service. The lunch specials are truly a bargain especially for such delcious food! Shared eggplant & string beans in a spicy garlic sauce and sauteed soba noodles with veggies & tofu. Plenty of food to share and then some! The noodles were fresh, tasty and had great flavor. Loads of veggies too. The eggplant & string beans were flavorful and not greasy like at most Chinese restaurants. Great selection of teas. Waiter suggested the brownie for dessert - wow! Best vegan brownie ever! I can't wait to go back for dinner. Their liquor license is pending!
