When a friend says "I know this great vegetarian restaurant on Quinpool" I almost said "No thanks, I'm a devout carney."
But I'm glad I kept my rarely-closed trap closed. Garden of Eat'n was damn good. And a very nicely designed, attractive space - all soft, mellow, warm colours.
There were plenty of meat choices at Garden of Eat'n and they all looked very good.
But it was the veggie choices that caught my eye - different, thoughtful, attractive.
In the end I went for seafood chowder (a delightful thin cream base with big chunks of very identifiable protein), and the beef & lamb kabob with rice (spiced just right).
Comments: I asked for a green tea and was delighted to see a large tea-pot arrive (I even said so to the very attentive waiter). But it was only ⅓ full !! I know it's easy to ask for a hot-water top-up, but please fill my pot!
There was a big computer generated slideshow on the wall, but the light was so low to be obtrusive, blinding half our table. So we moved the table a foot (the restaurant wasn't busy) and we were fine. But a small, strategically placed piece of cardboard under the projector lens would have prevented blinding patrons.
There were halal, veggie and gluten free choices too. We discovered the owner was from Iran - very approachable. We'll be back.
