This UES neighborhood restaurant serves up delicious Asian inspired Vegan dishes in a rather tired storefront in need of renewal. The fried spinach dumplings are outstanding as are the mock chicken and beef. Really authentic flavors and textures nicely prepared with delicious dipping sauces and...More

I love meat but gobo is amazing. The sweet and sour tofu is so good you can not tell its not chicken. The braised tofu is also worth trying the flavor is incredible. They also do sweet potato fries to start and all very reasonable.

Gobo is an unpretentious but pleasant vegan-vegetarian restaurant. The combination of a relaxed atmosphere, inventive and tasty food at fairly reasonable prices makes it worth a visit.

Even if you eat meat or fish, you will not feel deprived at Gobo. Fantastic food for vegetarians and vegans but not at all "worthy" so you can enjoy desserts and wine without feeling odd. Service is very friendly and efficient.

It was difficult to choose from the options on the menu. We went for lunch and greatly enjoyed all of the selections. The service was leisurely and the Vegan Key Lime Pie was delicious. However, it is different enough from standard key lime pie that...More
