My friends and I went to The Vegetarian with the knowledge that the previous reviews mentioned food going bland... well you get what you pay for. Food was of average taste at best but cheap.

This restaurant is a real treat for those who are vegetarian and non vegeterian alike. Its a great example of how food can be gloriously good and varied while remaining vegeterian. Great value at about 5.usd per person for a meal. Nice ambiance too.

Great place to hang out and eat. Healthy food without MSG. The restaurant has a green surrounding and is surprisingly tranquil compared to the city. I can't say the food was amazing, but great value for the money we paid.
