My friends and I ate here late one evening. We were welcomed warmly even though it was close to kitchen closing time. We did not feel rushed. The server brought our food quickly and we all agreed the food was better than average. Prices are very reasonable, affordable. The place is tiny but has a big heart.

We had a delicious lunch here today (Vietnamese Crepe and Chicken Satay Sandwich with sweet potato fries). Our waiter was gracious, friendly and knowledgeable. However, when we came in the restaurant was uncomfortably warm. We asked our waiter if she could make it cooler and she said she couldn't - that only the owner could do that and she didn't... More

When most of the guests at the table are vegetarian, and you want to eat beef, chicken and pork ..... then you must either eat at or take out from Bodhi Tree. I had never heard of this restaurant and was advised by my son to order anything on the menu there. Well, I brought a large feast home and... More

The service was poor and the food was bland. We ordered 3 different dishes and while we received it in good time, the overall experience was so disappointing based on the reviews. Since we were new to the restaurant, we tried to ask questions about the dishes and the server was uninterested in helping us figure out what was what... More

Spring rolls alone are worth the trip. Fresh, not fried, vegan, with peanut sauce. This vegetarian restaurant also has a good Sunday Buffet. Service is good, albeit a bit slow. Parking can be difficult as it is near the Main St in Huntington Beach and does not have it's own parking lot. Not much on ambiance, but again, what we... More

It's very hard to find a great place to find good, healthy fresh soup without MSG or it's been sitting around all day. Everything here is delicious. Very healthy, you can ask for them to cook using little oil and make it healthy. I've come here felling a little up under the weather, the chef made me some special soup... More

I was traveling with a friend that is a strict vegan and this was the perfect spot for dinner then a walk on the pier. There were so many options that we literally ordered a feast. Everything was delicious! We ordered the vietnamese crepe, egg rolls, soup, and 2 entrees. The sticky rice mango dessert is a must have. Yum!

Although the entire menu is vegan, I honestly believe that even a lifelong carnivore would enjoy the food here. My fave is the lemon 'chicken', potstickers & eggless egg rolls... Yummm.

A Vietnamese style restaurant with a large range of vegetarian options. For an appetizer I recommend the spring rolls and for the meal the hot and sour soup. So good! This is definitely one of the best places to eat in Huntington Beach. The food is very reasonably priced and tasty. I've been here multiple times and the food is... More
