Food was great with a nice variety of choices. Our waitress was fantastic (5). The tall brunette that rang me up after the meal needs to work on her customer service skills. She was rude and the only reason I will not be back.

This is hands down the best place for clean, vegetarian and vegan food. An Asian inspired menu. Eat in or take out for a picnic on a beautiful day.

The rice was delish but the curry was very underwhelming. Would return but so many great options in Portland

The main menu is full or Asian fusion staples and it is all great! They have a rotating specials menu with an entree that is always a crowd pleaser. My non-vegan friends and family love going here almost as much as I do!
