- I ordered the hot & sour soup. It was god-awful. I sent it back.
I ordered the miso soup. It was horrid I sent it back.
I ordered the Thai beef curry and it was a DREAM. Ohhhhh, sooo good. Large size, perfect flavour texture and temperature. I loved it1.
My juice was room temperature but okay.
I plan to return....and stay far away from the soups.

- I absolutely love this place. I actually had my birthday here one year. It's a great place to pig out and have tasty Chinese food that tastes great and is pretty cheap. My faves are the steamed rice w/curry chicken (this option is cheaper than the curry chicken) and the orange tangerine beef. The crispy chicken nuggets taste the same as other places (Red Bamboo, Vegetarian Paradise 2) but comes in a much larger portion. The decor is minimal but the prices more than make up for it and the waiters are always attentive. If you're in the area this is the seminal place for vegan not so fine dining. If you live in Park Slope and can get it delivered (like I used to) I officially hate you. The lunch specials are also good during the weekend.

- This place is really good. We usually get the chicken pad thai and it's amazing. It's really good - just stay away from the soups- awful! Great faux meat options - love the appetizers, the food is awesome.

- Agreed with previous reviews if you stick to the winners you'll be fine. Mango soy chicken, orange tangerine beef with broccoli, sundae, mint chip ice cream, salt and pepper chicken tenders, tofu with mixed veggies in brown sauce (basic but they do it well), tender chicken with steamed broccoli (not on the menu but good), and of course the banana chicken rolls.
Review by Red Lurcher on January 15, 2008:
- The menu is too extensive, and there's a lot of mediocre stuff on it. But if you stick to the winners, you'll be quite happy! Stand-out menu items are: Wonton Soup, Steamed Rice with Curry Chicken, Salt and Pepper Chicken Tenders, and the Chicken Nuggets. The Banana Split is pretty rockin' as well.
Unfortunately, their vegetable dishes are kind of disappointing (and a bit overpriced).
Although this place is a shameless copy of VP in Manhattan, I like it a lot more. The food is better and the staff is friendlier.

- I tried the General Tso's chicken nuggets- came with brown rice and lots of veggies for only 10.95. I wasn't crazy about the nuggets though- a little too chewy- i just wasn't crazy about the texture.
But their menu is REALLY extensive and I'll be going back to try several more things!
Also i got the wonton soup- REALLY delicous - i could have had like 5 of them! And it comes with like at least 4 wontons filled with soy protein stuff!

- Their unchicken nuggets are made out of the dreams of junk food addicted Angels. Their fruitshakes (a mix of your choice of fruit and vanilla soy ice cream) bring all the boys to the yard. This place is one of the perks of living in Brooklyn.
