Overall, we had a great meal. Pan-Asian appeal, with tasty flavors and textures. Many vegan options, including classy and tasty desserts. Especially enjoyed the mushroom bowl that had locally sourced mushrooms.

We stopped in on our summer travels And were blown away at how good the food was. I would eat here every day if it wasn’t 6 hours away. I would recommend this to everyone.

A favorite spot for family celebrations since we have a vegan family member! The best choice for birthday dinners. I especially love the variety of salads and changing menu!
