4 out of 5 stars Huge menu - took forever to decide what to order. The raw entree I got (spinach pie) was very filling, and the juice blend as served in a cool ceramic bowl. A bit pricy, but definitely high-quality. funcrunch

4 out of 5 stars This place has really grown on me. I much prefer it to the original UF and Herbs just down the block. No loud music or dining. Great atmosphere. Some of the portions may seem small compared to other restaurants, but everything is filling and probably one of the only true all ORGANIC and vegan places out there. Entrees on their own sometimes need a side dish or extra rice too. Also has great vegan desserts - Some home made and the more familiar Black China Bakery cakes. chris

5 out of 5 stars The food is delicious, healthy, and includes whole grains. The staff has been warm and patient. The menu is large. They play the classical music CDs I bring. What's not to like? Michael R. Edelstein

4 out of 5 stars Okay, after a few visits, I'm upping my rating from 3 to 4 stars based on the cooked foods I've tried. I recommend the zaatar (appetizer) and these 2 entrees: Sultan's Plate, Magik Mushroom (latter is good with an extra scoop of rice). Restaurant decor is very warm and welcoming, and staff is friendly/efficient. Nice to see more vegan options in the Mission! tammy

1 out of 5 stars Disappointing food, small portions, overpriced. I won't go here again. The interior is very nice, true, but that doesn't make up for the food (and gives a reason why they overcharge for the food...) kimflournoy
