This restaurant is all around awesome! Great choices for vegetarians that are delicious. They donate their earnings to United States citizens in need as well as in Vietnam. I can't wait to go back and try another menu item.

We are vegetarians and this is an all vegetarian restaurant so it's a must if you are vegetarian. This city isn't super vegetarian friendly so we were very happy to eat here. The food was great and so were there prices! I have to add that the food was made with love!

Great little restaurant in Louisville. I was surprised when we arrived that they had a little parking lot as there seemed to be a lot of 'street parking only' shops and restaurants in the area. Service was fast, food was delcious. We tried the Hot Pot Soup and the Orange Tofu dinner special - which came with a spring roll,... More

I've been there four times in the last three months. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill Asian restaurant. Very creative menu in a very low key atmosphere. I particularly like the crispy shitake mushroom dish and the Vietnamese crepe. Soups are excellent. It sometimes takes some skill to maneuver about the parking lot, but it's worth it.

The food is great and service friendly. Many excellent choices for vegans. Even the vegan deserts are great.

This place had excellent food. Every dish was excellent, vegan, and just plain delish. The service was slow, but the food is so worth it!

I'm always on the lookout for a good vegetarian restaurant and dragged my meat eating wife here. I thought it was good. I thought the eggplant was a bit under done but my wife said that's how they served it when she was growing up in Asia. So I guess it's fairly authentic vegetarian Asian food.

Lovely vegetarian asian restaurant. Great selection of meat substitues. Quiet clean atmosphere. Not my first visit. Definitely not my last by far. I am GF and they offered to make the dish I ordered GF to accommodate my restriction.

The restaurant isn't so much to look at inside or out. However, food was freshly made and very tasty. Even the fried items weren't drenched in oil. Lots of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. The waiter got our order spot on without even jotting one note on a pad. All reasonably priced as well.

While on the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Walk, we were trying to find a restaurant that provided gluten free, dairy free food and a non-noisy atmosphere. We had to leave a neighboring restaurant because of the din, it was nearly impossible to hear each other. Zen Garden simply surpassed our expectations in every aspect! The waiter was patient and knowledgable. The... More
