The food is very good. The service is poor and it's not entirely the server's fault. It's a bad space for this restaurant. The kitchen is downstairs, the dining room is small and tight in more of a hallway than a room. The space requires seats so small they are uncomfortable. Because it is so small, there is usually only one waiter and when it's busy, be prepared to wait and wait and ask and ask and ask again. This restaurant deserves a bigger space. It can hire more servers and provide the service and comfortable experience food like this deserves. I hope they move. I bet their business would grow like mad.

My title says it all. The food is decent, though it all has a microwaved quality. The food is a little overpriced, I mean a sandwich consisting of bread and tofu should NOT run over $10 but it does here. But the service is really poor. I went for a small party, and the waiter couldn't handle it. He took over an hour to take our order, when we requested him to do so several times. I ordered drinks that never came (several times). And even though we were a party clearly in need of attention, he would sit and chat with his friends.

I am not a vegan, which might explain why my various attempts to try the cuisine end up not entirely satisfying. I work right across the street from this, I will admit, absolutely adorable place. The lad behind the counter was extremely friendly and struck up a conversation with me, one that eventually led to my ordering shiitake mushrooms with sunflower seeds and a side of brown rice. I love all three of these ingredients, and after having finished them, have not had a stitch of hunger for over seven hours. However, there was something a little too penetrating about the smell of the dish; the earthiness and basicness was almost overwhelming. Not their fault of course; perhaps I'll try something more flavorful next time.

i completely adore this tiny little vegan spot. i take everyone i know (sometimes kicking and screaming) who is willing to indulge me to sacred chow...and they are always delighted in the end. sacred chow (in my opinion) is much healthier and tastier treat than red bamboo. the tapas are amazing and the specials of the day are always on point. they have a delicious millet with roasted vegetables that i am in love with...not to mention the blackstrap seitan,dijon marinated kale, tempeh, everything...yummy. aaaand, there desserts are completely to die for. amazing.

Sometimes it can be hard to find a good vegetarian (or vegan) brunch in the city. Yesterday, I had the tofu scramble at Sacred Chow, and I was quite impressed. Def. go give it a try!

Went here when I was on a detox so I was kind of limited in what I could order. But everything that came was fresh and flavorful. I had perfectly cooked brown rice, dijon marinated kale and homemade hummus, which were all delicious. Brunch companion had cornmeal crusted brussel sprouts which she raved about. The atmosphere is like that of a Bohemian coffee shop. I liked the feel and the waiter was excellent. Also, try the fresh vegetable juices - you can make your own combination and they are so good!

The food is original, highly varied, and unbelievably tasty. I love the comforting atmosphere, the friendly and attentive but not overbearing service, and the number of fantastic choices on the menu. The tapas are really fun and there are a number of ever-changing and intriguing specials. Truly, whatever you're in the mood for they can find a vegan way to cater to your every desire! I come to Sacred Chow as often as I have a chance and always look forward to it and leave with a smile on my face and a full belly.
