We were actually looking for a vegetarian restaurant but actually found the nearest thing to it as we do in fact eat fish. Ingredients were clearly marked and the staff were knowledgable and extremely pleasant. The food was delicious, highly recommended!

This was a great find. The fish tacos were fantastic. Very fresh and very tasty. Pinto beans were fantastic too. The really amazing thing was the corn bread. Well worth as desert. Loved them. Staff are very professional too. Will be back.

Great natural healthy food! We had a veggie burger and a falafel pitta which were both good. Not outstanding but good value! Nice atmosphere and friendly staff :)

Vegetarians as well as flesh eaters will enjoy the great menu. Young wait staff is very accommodating and friendly. Nice drink selection including 509 beer.

We are still going to the Natch a couple of times a month. I've recently discovered the line caught salmon dinner with rice and veggies. The glaze they use on the fish is sweet and quite good on the fish as well as on the rice and veggies. My new favorite!

Wait in line to order off an extensive menu of both Vegetarian and Meat based items. Servers are friendly and helpful. I love the Veggie Tacos, the Arugula Salad w/ Tahini Dressing, and the occasional lunch special of veggie enchiladas. My son likes the Good Karma Burger and the Tuna Melt. You can ask for no cheese/ sour cream etc.... More

Seven of us came for dinner before a movie and we were all very happy with our meals. I had the Mount Fuji Stir Fry and it was loaded with very tender chicken and vegetables, stir fried very nicely. The sandwiches and soups around the table were well complimented as well. As this is a walk up and order, then... More

I have some serious food challenges that makes eating out difficult. This is a restaurant that understands food restrictions & goes out of their way to make it happen!! I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the place, the friendliness of the staff, the freshness of the alive food and the choices that I had to make my meal... More
