“Good choice for vegetarians”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

I'm a vegetarian and it was lovely to be able to have a veggie hamburger.

The hamburger was good, and there were plenty of fresh salad options on the menu.

Prices were reasonable.

“Great vegetarian restaurant”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I always eat at least once at Vishnu when in San Jose. The fruit is always fresh and great, and the veggie dishes are usually well prepared with interesting seasonings. A good alternative to typical fast food places that seem to be taking over San Jose these days.

“Amazing Vegetarian Food”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

It looks very cheap from the outside, actually not very inviting, but the food is amazing and the prices are fair to the quality. Excellent service and very very yummy.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

There are about 7 locations of Vishnu within San Jose. The menu is large. It's a vegetarian place but the food is really good and good prices. I've spoken to a number of locals who come to eat here but who are not vegetarian -- they say the food is really good, good combos, and good pricing on top of eating a bit healthy. They have good hours and are open early in the morning to around 9 pm. Service is pretty fast. They accommodate dietary requests. You cannot go wrong eating here -- it's nothing fancy but you'll get a good, relatively healthy meal that's filling without breaking your wallet. I've eaten here at least a dozen times over my 3-4 trips to Costa Rica.

“Excellent Fruit Salad”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Stopped here for lunch, had a fruit salad that was out of this world, along with a great smoothie. Would recommend this place to anyone.
