Some of the best organic food I've had in a while and for a pretty good price. The restaurant itself is nicely kept. It's a cute place. But the food, I love it... I've been craving it for days. Especially their salads, the greens are so fresh you can see and taste it.

There are some dishes here that are just delicious. My favorite, which is a special, is the miso black cod-Nobu move over. It is served with a millet-cauliflower mash that is like nothing I've tasted anywhere-yum. The Chinese greens are always fresh. Much better than cooking at home.

We just ordered from Mana, hoping for a yummy vegetarian meal... we did not get one. Here are some words to describe the food we got... brown, bland, unappetising. Yeah, it wasn't good. Do not go to this restaurant!

The food is so delicious here. I just wish it was down by me - downtown, I'd eat there every day if I could. A lot of people do. The food is very healthy, unless you like all the fried stuff like me. the adzuki dessert is the best!

Mana, is situated right across a huge radiology dental office that advertises in huge letters. The good news is that the food is terrific, their weekend brunch's are wonderful. I love their tofu scramble and tempeh bacon with toast ( the best in NYC). They also have a delicious vegan chocalate cake. Mana attracts a liberal crowd with fledging models and artists sprinkle in the mix. Highly recommended.

This restaurant suffers from what many vegetarian restaurants in New York do, namely to sacrifice taste and imagination for health. The food here was entirely adequate, but every bite left you thinking how healthy the food was rather than how wonderful it tasted. We tried the burrito, which was bland, and the teriyaki seitan which was better. The service was phenomenal however, friendly and efficient. All in all, not a bad option, but left me longing for the innovative vegetarian cuisine on the west coast.

So do not get the vegetable tempura, they charge you 1.25 per piece of tiny broccoli or mushroom and the sauce isn't right, it's like a bland soy sauce water broth. I got the seaweed salad and it was basically neatly arranged piles of seaweed with nothing on it. no flavor. the waitress brought some 'light dressing' for it when asked and it didn't taste like anything, kind of like watered down syrup. The mixed greens with shitake seemed healthy enough and was a better portion, but again, very bland, and didn't seem to be put together with much flair or care. The place is clean, service is okay, but the food was bland bland bland. The high point was the daily grain, but only because I don't make quinoa wild basmati often at home. We actually ended up going to a real Japanese restaurant afterwards... Go here if you want some organic veggies and brown rice and to lazy to make it yourself at home. this place sacrifices seems to think that one must sacrifice flavor for the sake of 'health'
