Pros : Very vegan and vegetarian friendly, delicious food and good service. You have to try the mung bean spring rolls. No one else in St. Louis has them. Cons: No delivery service.

I am always impressed here. Trust the waiter's recommendations. Usually something off the specials board is best, and the vegetarian options are all awesome. The fried mung bean is really awesome. My only complaint/suggestion for improvement would be the beer selection because I'm not a...More
