This place is nice enough to return to, though largely thanks to the lack of better options in Vancouver.
At times, the music has been so loud and so obnoxious that I barely noticed the actual meal in my fervour to escape the speakers.
The menu tries really hard to be cool and funky, but just comes off as overly cutesy and annoying. Someone thought it would be awesome alternative to use spellings like 'brokkly' and 'sesamum' and abbreviations like 'toms'. It's decipherable enough, but I'd rather not translate when I'm hungry. I suspect this gimmick is a joke staff cooked up to humiliate diners, as they must know how stupid we feel using these ridiculous pseudo-words.
I've enjoyed the food well enough more often than not. My staple here is a broccoli-tofu combination served on rice; very simple, but tasty and filling. Despite being a cheaper item (it's listed with the appetizers), I always have a little left over to take home.
Entrees are often a one-dish deal, so choose carefully; the sauce you select will permeate your entire meal. Sometimes this has worked out well--the sesame maple salad with chickpeas and tofu was very, very tasty, though a little salty. At other times, I've been sick of the same flavour long before I was actually full. The tofu-burger was adequate, but I don't need to eat it again.
The dark chocolate fondue is nice for dessert, but they could use a better selection of other sweets. I've never been able to try their vegan pies as they are perpetually unavailable.
Service used to truly suck. Now the staff is pleasant but sometimes scatterbrained. I've been given food with no utensils to eat with, and tried without success for quite a few minutes to get someone's attention. At other times, the bill is presented but it's impossible to get someone to come over to give change. Last time I went, our waitress was very helpful; let's hope change is on the way.
