Though it's called a vegetarian restaurant, it actually seems to be a vegan restaurant. Our group consisted of vegetarians and omnivores (who thought they wouldn't be full from a veggie meal). The dumplings looked like chicken and had the texture of chicken, but fortunately without the chicken taste or smell. They even put a "bone" in the dumpling which is made from sugar cane. We also had orange "chicken" nuggets, spicy eggplant, lemongrass tofu, and another "chicken" dish. The meat texture is so realistic that is might scare some vegetarians, but there are options for "meatless" dishes. There are both spicy and non-spicy dishes to appeal to everyone. In the end even the omnivores were full; so vegetarians don't let omnivores keep you from trying this restaurant.

One of my lead managers is a fit, fitness and diet evangelist. This is the only place she will let me take her for lunch. The food is great, and is prepared quickly. Given my weight, I need to follow her lead. There is enough variety on the menu that your palate won't get bored.

We had the mix vegetable, the spring rolls, the sweet potato curry, and some eggplant with tofu dish. The food was pretty greasy. Out of the 4 dishes we got, the sweet potato curry was the best.

For vegans, this is a dream come true. The menu is loosely vegetarian Vietnamese but there is a wide variety of dishes that should please anyone. I've taken omnivorous friends here, and they have been surprised at the quality of food.
The staff is very friendly--presumably they are all members of the Supreme Master cult, and as cults go they seem to be a particularly happy one. The Supreme Master videos that are played on a loop on a large screen tv are silly and sometimes border on the inappropriate. Many of us are vegetarians because we are repulsed by the mistreatment and killing of animals, so could we please not see that while we're eating?
The Supreme Master's restaurants seem to each have their own personality and largely their own menus--but there is some consistency and crossover. There are plenty of the standard meat analogs, but also some lovely soups and noodle dishes that stand on their own and is better than you will find in any of your neighborhood mom & pops.
