It's an absolutely delightful dining experience. Had a wonderful time with my friends there last night. The food was delicious and vegetarian. It's sort of Asian, but then it's got all this worldly influence too like risotto. Simply delightful! I would go there again.

I recently became a vegan and have a hard time with restaurants that cater to vegans/vegetarians. I find they are often overly hyped places where the food is expensive and tasteless. Gobo, on the other hand, is an absolute delight. I am quite shocked to read a bad review about it! Sorry to hear that person was disappointed. I wasn't wowed by their pasta dishes or their dessert, but everything else I've had there has been legitimately delicious (not just by vegan standards!). Many of my red-meat eating carnivore friends crave this place too and make mid-week trips from Princeton to NYC just to go! I highly recommend the New england rolls. I am not typically a fan of tofu or seitan, but got to give it to gobotheir soy/seitan dishes are excellent. Service is always friendly, but the place is very loud.

I love Gobo- I've been coming back for a few years now, and it is always a great experience. The food is fantastic and flavorful. I've brought my vegan and non-vegan friends here and they all adore it.

When I took my vegetarian sister to the city, we were excited to find an ALL vegetarian restaurant. We read many positive reviews and were looking forward to enjoying a great meal. This was NOT the case. We were extremely disappointed to say the least. The descriptions of the food on the menu sound so enticing, but when you take your first bite you realize that even an all vegetarian restaurant can't make tofu taste good. We ordered a variety of appetizers that included many fried items, and were shocked that the cook somehow managed to make a fried cheese & spinach wonton inedible. Both of us couldn't even bring ourselves to finish the very small portions and almost gagged when tasting the 5 spice tofu spring roll. Further, the prices are outrageous considering what you receive on your plate ($7 for 3 very small, inedible wontons or 2 mini spring rolls?) Save your money and don't go to GOBO!

I've been to Gobo once for lunch and twice for dinner. The portions are large and satisfying. The lunches will definitely fill you and the "large plates" will stuff you if you don't bring some home. The vegetables are fresh and flavorful and the bread + spread is great, as is the rice-in-a-banana leaf that comes with the meals. However, whatever main-dish protein elements you get are likely to be deep-fried and salty. The other thing I don't like about Gobo is that it is SO LOUD. My recommendation come here alone for lunch when it's not too crowded and get a great value ($10-15). But don't bring a friend for dinner, because it's usually packed and you would be able to hear each other talk.

...but watch out for that pineapple dessert! it's really disgusting, too sugary sweet. the salt and pepper mushrooms, though, are fantastic. like french fries made of mushrooms! a little pricey, and it's a loud restaurant, but definitely worthwhile.

simply the best world vegetarian cuisine. I love fried foods. It makes the food taste terrific. If u want healthy don't eat out. That's the truth.
