I really enjoy going to Gobo everytime. I think every dish is wonderful and worth the price. Not sure I agree with the reviewer below "ordering strategically?" I guess if you were on a very tight budget you would do that... but then why go out? I like having a great time and Gobo's prices are definitely affordable.

Gobo has a few interesting though over priced entrees. The seitan is the most popular dish and one of the most expensive. Its deep fried so for that reason alone it tastes pretty good. A lot of the dishes I sampled were either bland or were just concoctions of peculiar tasting combinations. For instance, the soy vanilla ice cream desert has a very odd tasting berry sauce drizzled over it which I didn't care for at all. I'd say try Gobo once if you are in the area and order strategicaly to cut down on costs. You don't really need to order more than one "large" entree for two persons, not including appetizers of course.

Our cousins took us to Gobo for the first time.We odered fresh juices, appetizers,lunch portions and coffee. The presentation was very good and the food tastes excellent. We are vegetarians, and we thought the place rocks. After drinking the juices there, we tried to make it at home and it came it so good and refreshing!!

Gobu is top notch-fresh food, fresh ingredients, made well-super vegetarian cuisine. I take my non-veg. friends there-real meat and potatoes people and they love it. I have been there about 6 times in the past 6 months and have had delivery as well. Each experience was good food. The service is not so wonderful unless you luck out with a good waitstaff member. Reception can be cool and prices are a bit high, but the food is really good.

I brought 3 friends here on Friday night and the place was packed! Wow! Didn't wait too long for a table though, but I think it is best to make a reservation if it's going to be this packed. Anyways, I digress though, I brought some of my non vegetarian friends here and thought it was fab. Kept saying "Wow, this is vegetarian?" Of course I knew how to order though, family style, and the bill didn't come up to be big at all. My friend thoroughly enjoyed the meal and I was happy. Although I agree, if you don't know how to order, your bill can get astronomically high... just a word of advice.. share.

I went here a couple of times and was never impressed. The meals are overpriced. If you were to get anything, go for a light dinner and just get the small plates - the large plates are unfulfilling, overpriced, and don't taste so good. The only thing I really recommend is the roti canai.

This is exactly what this neighborhood needs! What a refreshing change! My husband and I love this place and we have started to dine here regularely. The staff is very warm and attentive to your needs. I enjoyed many healthy dishes like the chakra rolls, thinly sliced daikon radish wrapped with farm vegetables in a spicy almond sauce. It's very delicious, raw, and I can' wait to go back for some more! Or some of the eggplant stuffed with herbed tofu cheese... I don't agree that all the menu items are fried like this reviewer said below. I think you just need to ask and explore the menu some more. There are plenty of healthy options. Also, the food is mostly organic and vegan. The food is delicious, full of flavor, and a delight to eat while being heathly. I recommend this place to all vegetarians and non-vegetarians because it's just simply a lovely restaurant with great food. Forget that it's a vegetarian place and just go!
