The place is a lovely oasis near downtown Austin and right off the Town Lake Hike and Bike trail.
Bamboo of many varieties and lovely walk to front doors of communal style dining room. No menu to choose from just the meal but you can go back for seconds on anything you want. I have been eating here for years and even though the chef has changed a few times, it is always good, clean food. A typical meal is a hot soup, salad, then a plate with brown rice, beans, steamed greens with sun cheese, another veggie usually a root or squash, and some kind of pickled veggie. Gomasio and kelp flakes and tamari are the condiments. As much hot or cold tea as you like, desserts are extra cost.

Just the basics but that's all your body needs. Whole foods, organic and yummy. The offer a soup, salad, grain, bean, green and pickle. Seasonal and organic. Also a little shop for hard to find items and books.

You get the feel that the diners here view this venue as a part of their community. Interesting and tasty food. $12/ person dinner. Family friendly.

I love this place! The food was excellent and fresh. I am not a vegetarian, but still thoroughly enjoyed everything. If you're open minded, this is a place for you

The food is really interesting and healthy. I like it because it gives me the chance to taste dishes i've never had before. You have to really like this type of food though, it's probably not for everyone. The staff are really nice and seem happy to be there. Really nice ambiance...very relaxing outside with lights, jasmine and other pretty plants and flowers. Great place!
