Latest Reviews and Comments


MOD Pizza
Love how they organize their pizza toppings, with the veggies first, and storing the vegan cheese underneath. My favorite is the medium crust, and any of their veggie toppings. Caution, the bbq sauce is strong, and for sensitive palates, may overwhelm the other topping flavors. Always friendly and quick service on multiple visits! 4 out of 5 stars

Taj Grill
Miss the Wed buffet being entirely plant-based. However, they are offering a Monthly Vegan Night dinner buffer which has been very successful, and they still have many vegan choices marked on their menu. 4 out of 5 stars

Jyun Kang Vegetarian Restaurant
Delicious and reasonable prices too. Old style Chinese food with extensive menu with both pictures, as well as Chinese and English language menu. Looking forward to returning again and ordering extra food to take home with me. 5 out of 5 stars

Java Jax
No longer offering vegan donuts. Still offers nondairy milk. 3 out of 5 stars

Himalayan Organic Cafe
Enjoyed 3 visits so far, when it was an all-vegan cafe (recently they added chicken). Then, my suggestion would be for a curry sampler platter. Now, since it's a mixed restaurant, and there's an ample amount closer to me, regretfully not worth a trek from Napa County to dine and then shop at nearby community market "Oliver's", which has a comprehensive bulk section. If I was in the area, I'd go to Gaia's instead. 3.5 out of 5 stars

Pho Saigon Village
We went last night to sample some of their vegan options and it was SO fresh, delicious, and beautiful! The quantity was a lot and most of us couldn't finish and took leftovers home. The noodles and the veggies were awesome and so thankful and happy that there's a dedicated vegan menu! Thank you for offering this to the VJO community I highly recommend their food and the restaurant is clean, mod 5 out of 5 stars

Pho Saigon Village
The food is flavorful, the portions are generous for the price, and the staff is incredibly accommodating. I had the vegan curry chicken and it was excellent. 5 out of 5 stars

Pho Saigon Village
Delicious food, generous servings, friendly & quick service. Both times asked for steamed tofu instead of fried tofu, even in lieu of the vegan chicken, and they were very accomodating. Good option when you have non-vegan family to dine with. 4 out of 5 stars

Java Jax
Donuts from Vegan Donut Gelato are available here. Please give Java Jax a reason to keep stocking them! 4 out of 5 stars

Next Level Burger
I love this place, and have been here waaay to many times. The food is consistently delicious. My recent favorites are the Garden Style Grilled Chz and the Chili Chz Fries. My husband goes for the All American or the Classic burgers. I find that the shakes don't usually have enough flavoring added, but my husband loves them. 5 out of 5 stars

Vegan Picnic
I had a chance to try a variety of items. The Sausage Breakfast Sandwich was good, but a bit too much ketchup. The Steak Tip Sandwich was perfect. The challah buns that the sandwiches are served on are so light, airy and delicious. The plain yeast raised doughnut was perfect. I haven't had one in over 10 years. It was a great surprise. The chocolate croissant was great, the plain croissant was a bit sweet for my taste. I prefer a more savory plain croissant. Limited seating, but it's a a nice area for window shopping. 4.5 out of 5 stars

Taj Grill
Taj Grill has the best tasting vegan Indian food in Vallejo. The lunch buffet always has several delicious vegan options in both the main dishes and the salad dressings, and Harish will be happy to point them out to you. You can go back for more as many times as you wish. If you chose to order off the menu, the vegan options are clearly marked under the Vegetarian/Vegan section. 4.5 out of 5 stars

MOD Pizza
MOD pizza never fails to deliver yummy options! Their service is great, staff is nice and accommodating. For toppings: they have garlic; roasted and chopped, peppers, veggies, herbs, marinara, vegan cheese! Their Buffalo drizzle is vegan and adds a twist to the normal pizza flavor. You can also build your own salad, their balsamic is amazing (have them mix it in with a little oil) !! 4.5 out of 5 stars

Mountain Mike's
So awesome they have vegan cheese! Friendly service, tasty pizza (sub the artichoke hearts for pineapple) and love the Tuesday discount. Usually get it to go, but this location has a modern and clean interior. 4 out of 5 stars

Nature Vegetarian Restaurant
I adore this restaurant. The food is wonderful! This is a mock-meat based place and has the most tender mock meats I've ever had- not chewy-bouncy or spongy! They also have straight forward staff who will point you to the best if you let them. Oddly my favorite thing here is their seasonal vegetable dishes- pea shoots in spring! Sweet potato vines in summer! Ask what they have that day and enjoy! 4.5 out of 5 stars

Pepples Donut Farm
This place is *fine*. The donuts are fine- though they seem to me to be nearly all the same donut just with different glaze. The food is fine. What is not fine is the massive wait involved because it is a popular place. I don't mind waiting for really good food, but fine is not fine unless there are no choices, and in Berkeley, we have many. 0 out of 5 stars

The Butcher's Son
Pretty awesome and a rare concept! House made vegan "meats and cheeses" go on their incredible sandwiches and salads! In addition they have fried mozzarella, bacon macaroni salad, and usually an assortment of desserts, all vegan and in a funky atmosphere. Parking is difficult so be prepared, but totally worth going out of your way for! 4.5 out of 5 stars

Saturn Cafe
I love Saturn Cafe. They have lots of vegan options. My favorite is the shredded "chicken" burger. Another favorite - vegan shakes. 5 out of 5 stars

Next Level Burger
This place is amazing! I tried their chili cheese tots, they were crispy and slathered in vegan chili & cheese. They let my husband and I taste the kombucha before picking one to drink, which both kombucha's tasted was hard to pick which one I wanted. 5 out of 5 stars

Next Level Burger
My fave new place! Working my way through the burger menu. Shakes addicting. EV Charging too <3 <3 5 out of 5 stars

China Wok
Easy to dine vegan, just ask. Recommend the Kung Pao Tofu. Friendly staff and quick service. 3.5 out of 5 stars

Amy's Drive Thru
Fun place to visit! Love the free EV charging and vegan milkshakes! Enjoyed everything I've tried, from burgers to pizza to breakfast. Will happily return. 4 out of 5 stars

Zachary's Chicago Pizza
Delicious pizza! The stuffed (thick crust) pizza is heavenly and the thin crust has a lot of flavor too. Attentive and friendly service. If they were a vegan restaurant, they'd get 5 stars from me. 4 out of 5 stars

Bodhi Bowl
Based on a single dining experience, really enjoyed it--friendly, quick service in a pleasant atmosphere, delicious food.. My non-vegan family also liked it (better than Andy's) and would return again next time I'm in the area. 4.5 out of 5 stars

Andy Nguyen's Vegetarian
Based on a single dining experiencer there, I'd say it's a nice restaurant with pleasant ambience and decor, worked well for my veg and non-veg family. Easy location and parking. I enjoyed my dish and would return again. 4 out of 5 stars
