Fantastic Veggie Burger

My friend and I are normally meat eaters, but this food was GOOD. The veggie burger was fantastic (best in the city I bet), and our other items were tasty, too. The prices were very reasonable as well. The restaurant isn't much to look at, but we weren't there for atmosphere. Note-if you see old reviews about a "C" health dept score - they now have an "A."

Every thing is great 'bout this place! Excellent food, excellent service, excellent place. Great selection of food. Their tofu is great, the beans dishes, the greens, rice, sweet yams, every thing. I love their drinks, especially the 'Bad Man'. Great picker-upper. Overall, the vibes of this rasta-rant is homely. You definitely feel welcomed.

Great juices Great tofu burgers Not so great sense of style

The food in general was pretty good. The tofu burger was one of the best I've had, much better than the Better Burger tofu burger or the veggie burgers you can buy at the supermarket. The juices and smoothies selection was unexpectedly big. The quality of their smoothies was on par with what you can get at a specialty store.The big complaint here is the low quality presentation. The combination plate is served on a Chinese plate and the smoothies on foam cups. The teas and hot drinks are sold on deli style flimsy coffee cups. The paint job of the place is a lifeless green.

Food was amazing and the cost was well worth it. If you want vegan (ital) food that tastes like it came straight from Jamaica, then this is the spot. The guys are so sweet too. Sit, eat, chill, and if you are a good chess player, then have a go at one of the guys in the spot. Love, love, love. I ate my food and even was eating off my hubby's plate. Delicioso!
