  • Pretty good, but Gobo is better. Still, Zen Palate is very omni-friendly, and a great place to grab a meal if you find yourself in midtown.

  • Ok, do not get the Tex-Mex Moo Shu [bland!] having said that the spring rolls and the grilled sesame tofu salad are terrific.

    I do think the items here are hit or miss...

  • I don't know if it's just what I choose to order at Zen Palate or if my taste buds are on strike, but everything I've had here (and I've been a number of times, on account of formerly living near Union Sq.) has had that "munching on weeds" quality that non-veg people sometimes moan about. And I'm not a moaner, notwithstanding some of my reviews. But alas, it's probably just my taste buds.

  • I just became a vegetarian and was very skeptical about trying new things. The Zen Palate is amazing! Everything my husband and I ordered was super tasty and the portions were generous. I highy reccomend this place!
