We had a delicious meal here. Heaven for our veg family. We loved the mushroom panini, the rice wraps, mushroom pasta, small salad and the burger. ALL AMAZING!

I visited the place a couple of weeks ago. Place was empty, just some other 4 people in another table (already eating) and yet we waited about 15 minutes until a guy in a very informal way, attended us.
After we ordered 2 coffees and 2 cakes, we waited about 15 more minutes for the order to come.
Like any other "fusion" restaurant with a new age vision in it, it's an overpriced place, with food that I can cook better at home.

I was so excited to find a vegetarian restaurant in the cute neighborhood of San Jose as most places around are meat-heavy. The menu looked great so we ordered the Sopa Azteca, burger and rollitos (like salad rolls with mushrooms). While the prices were kind of high, the portions were at least big. But the taste was poor. Everything was bland, the burger weirdly mushy despite being likely fried. The only good part of the meal was the side of potato fries. I’d highly recommend just going to another restaurant nearby with a few veggie options rather than this place.

Hello Erin, my name is Lalay, I’m the chef and one of the owners, I’m really sorry to read this, we really want our customers to be happy and satisfy. So, we have a satisfaction policy so if you don’t like the dish we can change it for another one, or do it again if we mess up, or if not, its on us, we wont charge you anything. I remember I ask you because I felt that your weren’t ok, please always tell us so we can fix it.
So please, if you let us, give us another chance to compensate both of you.
My sincere apologies.
