"I think pad thai is what people get if they never ate thai food or don't know what to order. It's hard to not make good tasting pad thai. and this is vegan pad. thai. thanks for commenting."
Am I being criticized for an honest opinion? I have had plenty of thai food and the pad thai at your restaurant was not very good, to put it mildly. I didn't want to give a bad review because I wanted to give you guys another chance. But from the way you handled my review, I don't think I will. Thanks.
Exceptional taste and fabulous deal. This place far surpasses any Thai or vegetarian restaurant for miles. Unique combination of noodles, rice, veggies with a choice of tofu, vegan beef, chicken or fish......good meal sizes and very cozy. Sit inside or out...very very neighborly. Good prices and great service...basically a real gem in this part of town.
Best vegan joint anywhere. I'm not even a vegan, and I love eating here. Their food is awesome. They deliver, and the staff is always very friendly. This isn't just the best vegetarian restaurant anywhere, it's one of my favorite restaurants, period. You've gotta try their fries, the chik'n wrap, veggie wrap, and their cole slaw. Also, they have a great yellow curry.
Great vegan place!!. I went with a friend a couple Friday nights ago and we both thought it was awesome. I had a BLT and he had some kind of fish burrito, the food was really good!! The portions were good compared to the price. And our bill -- for 2 entrees, 1 side, and 1 drink, was only $16. I can't wait to go back and try their chicken and waffles breakfast, a cruelty-free alternative to Roscoe's across town :) I agree with healthynut who posted before me, the server etiquette is a little off -- my entree was brought out almost 10 minutes before my date's -- but everyone who worked there was really warm. Definitely try this place!
Delicious, Cheap, and Crave-inducing. This place is a little gem! The menu offers everything from breakfast burritos to pad thai, and is extensive enough that whenever I've gone, I've had a very difficult time choosing. So far, everything we've ordered has been delicious, particularly the Cowboy Burger and the Spicy Basil Noodles. Meals range from $5 to $10 and portions are generous. The restaurant is small, casual, and unpretentious. There are a couple of small outdoor tables, and they even have Scrabble and a couple of other games available to play while you eat. There are a lot of choices that will please meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.
Vegan Joint A Great Neighborhood Secret!. I live in the "hood" of Palms and noticed this place just recently. After reading the reviews, I decided to give it a shot. I wholeheartedly confer that the prices, portion sizes and taste is great. All 3 meals ordered by myself and friends were excellent. The service was prompt...tables are only 6 or so and the parking is a bear..but worth it! Also, I thought it was odd that they served us the desert of soy cheesecake in a to-go dish without plates..so I had to make the server aware of proper etiquette... But, overall...a great find and one I will return to. Give it a try..highly unlikely you will be disappointed. Mainly a chinese/thai flair with some salads and traditional breakfast items...no coffee...you can bring your own wine if you come for dinner. Soy chicken, fish and steak.
Loved the fresh spring rolls. I was fortuante to be able to return to the Vegan Joint. First time I have had fresh spring rolls. Great! I also had a noodle dish that I can not remember the name of.......It was chicken and noodles....so yummy. Finished off with cheesecake and that was good too. The wait staff is so friendly.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors. Palms vegan restaurant serves breakfast all day, Thai dishes, veggie- and lentil burgers, sandwiches, wraps, soups, curries, more. Delivery available.
I am a carnivore.. however...... "The Vegan Joint" went in skeptical and I left amazed! The food there, not only healthy, low fat, quick service... but unbelievably delicious foods ranging from Thai food to great veggie burgers, soups and delicious dinners! The food is filling and you dont feel heavy after you leave! They serve breakfast all day. YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS PLACE!!!!! A million thumbs up!!!!! Oh and did I mention affordable!!!!!!
Why can't we get more places like this?. Great place to eat. If I lived closer I would eat here all the time. They even deliver which is unheard of for a Vegan place and a godsend for local Vegans. And from what I could gather, it looked like I was surrounded by return customers, which was easy to understand once you tasted the simple, yet delicious vegan dishes. I had the chow mein with seitan. The portions are big, the prices reasonable, and most important - the food is healthy, clean and tastes good. The seitan was great, I like the spices they use. If you are already health conscious or just learning to crossover into a cleaner diet, this is a good place to get started, since they have vegan substitutes for cheese, chicken, eggs, meat and fish. ENJOY!!
Cheap, good atmosphere, & excellent food.. This place is great. It's over on National Blvd. by Overland. The area is kind of a hidden artsy kind of a place w/ lots of food places, antiquie shops, Italian ice cream shop, & a massage school. But if your a Vegan, you will dig The Vegan Joint. Just opened up. Always busy but, not over crowded. Food is good especially if you like thai food or asian food and the cook is quick. The service is fast!!!! I luv those spices!!!! A big menu & great prices. Close to home.
