There is a wide selection of sushi, all vegan and delicious. We loved the spring rolls with peanut sauce. There are also several kinds of noodle soups which have been excellent. We like it so much that we end up eating there once a week. On Mondays, they have the sushi specials along with the spring rolls, and you can... More

Came in for a low pressure meal with husband and my parents. Nice large space makes it easy to talk and not too loud, and the service was quick and attentive. They bake all the deserts on premises so the entire space is filled with the most delicious smell of cakes baking. Assuming you enjoy Asian flavors this is a... More

We found Sipz several years ago, and it quickly became one of our favorite "go to" restaurants for vegan food. Love their options!! "Nutz about Veggies" and Pad Thai are favorites as well as the Garlic Jalepeno Fries!!!

The food at this eatery has fooled my non vegan friends into thinking they were eating beef. I have tried many dishes and not disappointed yet. It comes piping hot because of the bowls they use. Their spice is on the lower end of a heat scale so order accordingly They have a nice assortment of beers available as well.... More

The location in a strip mall make this a little hard to find , but persist and you will not be sorry. The Vegan menu is full of treats and the salads are sized to be shared. There is a 19.00 salad which feeds 5 - 7people! Smoothies, teas and slushies up front. Craft beers in the back fridge

Never eaten Vegan food and this blew my mind, couldn't finish the food but it was nice (that's because I'm the lazy chewing type) but it was tasty not over cooked or undercooked

Meh. Two stars for atmosphere and variety but the favors were bland and the service was less than friendly. Can you believe the waiter called me cheap for ordering off the ala cart menu? Very sorry I wanted something simple and specific yesterday, sir. Apparently mixed vegetables means boc Choy and cabbage, super awesome. Maybe the favors were tainted my... More

Sipz has the very best vegetarian food I've ever had. Everything is so flavorful and delicious - I can't pick a favorite, but the walnut "shrimp" (made with toufu) is a standout. I eat here every time I'm in San Diego and would love it if they would open a branch in the Metro Detroit area!

This restaurant caters to a totally vegan crowd. The menu offers a great deal of choices and their vegan sushi is quite impressive.

I like to go to SIPZ at night when there is a sushi chef. My favorite meal is the caterpillar roll that replaces the traditional eel with yam. Lovely avocado makes the caterpillar green. I always have a little trouble finding vegetarian restaurants when I travel so I am giving back to those who have helped me. This place is... More
