The sweet and sour protein is deep fried and too sweet. Doesn't taste good and definitely not healthy. If you want to eat well, don't order this dish.

I ate here last Wednesday with my wife and another couple. The food was excellent, and reminiscent of Zen Palate's offerings. The prices were reasonable. But the acoustics were horrible. The place was 85% full, and all the hard wooden surfaces bounced the noise around and around. We had to practically yell at each other in order to have a conversation. There was music playing gently in the background, but the general din of all the diners talking and the noises from the open kitchen drowned out everything. I suggest get take out to enjoy a quieter meal. This place needs an acoustician to evaluate it and add sound baffling. Still great food, though.

We chanced upon this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. It was about $100 for 4 glasses of wine, 2 apps and 2 main courses, so its a decent value. I recommend the king oyster mushrooms. The ambiance is good too.

Gobo's menu is composed of hit or miss items. For a while, I was on a streak, getting "hits" such as the protein mango nuggets (which make me believe in a higher power), the sweet and sour sesame protein, the yam and yucca fries and the vietnamese spring rollls. Tonight though, reminded me of Gobo's dark side- its misses. The tender sliced seitan in ginger marinade is by far the worst thing I've had on the Gobo menu. Rubbery, bland, and all the other typical complaints about Gobo food, to the tenth power. Some decent things on the menu are the pan seared spinach dumplings, signapore stir-fry, and the natural seitan medallion in spicy citrus sauce (the citrus sauce is spicy as in Hot). What are some other hits and misses?

I am not a vegan. I remember when I fist came to this place was 2003 with my husband. We were both impressed with taste and visual aspect of the space and food presentations and well as the wait stuff. I think it is very natural that we all have a peak and stay on the top is not easy and if not, there is only to go down. We had Roti Canai w/ a flatbread(1) $7, Pan Seared Spinach Dumplings(6) $6, Seitan Skewers(2) $8 – had a tasty sauce (green tea mustard), White Beans & Cremini Mushroom Casserole $9 and two Awakening smoothies $5 each. Everything was bland. Only things that tasted good were the sauces one came with skewers and other came with spinach dumplings. I don’t know one dumpling is worth $2….with that taste..? We got there Saturday early evening around 6:30 PM. The kitchen stuff must have been ready. The foods should come out much better with the best situation but didn’t execute unfortunately. When we finished, there were still many stables were open. On top of all, our waiter was so quick to talk back. Overall, I will not likely going back. I know there are many who have different opinions. Would you share what was good and why? I might try your suggested dishes next time.

I'm not a vegan or a vegetarian, but the food here is incredibly flavorful. The vegan carrot cake was fantastic (who would have thought?).
