Soy And Sake Village

This is truly unfortunate. The owners of this restaurant do a terrific job at Red Bamboo and Vegetarian Paradise 2, just around the corner, but fail to live up to their own standards at Soy and Sake. I've had about three meals there now, and I left very disappointed. I think the issue lies with the Chefs, because they have similar meals at Red Bamboo and they just don't compare!!! If you want to spend the same amount of money and have vegetarian food, go to Red Bamboo or Veg. Paradise - right on West 4th. The last time I went there I returned my food and requested my money back - it was THAT bad!

Been waiting for a place like this to open in NYC! For all you vegetarians that like the idea of sushi, but are sick of picking roe off your "veggie" rolls, this is the place for you. Everything i've had here is excellent! Same owners as Red Bamboo, so most of the non-sushi dishes will be familiar.....But the sushi here rocks. The shrimp tempura is delish, the village and volcano rolls are excellent too. Loved the thai coconut soup too. I cannot get enough of this place- a genuine treat for vegetarians, and non-vegetarians that understand how great this option is for their veggie friends! Seriously... Go now!

I've passed this place like ten times before realizing it was an ALL VEGAN sushi restaurant. I was hesitant at first but because I'm trying to wean off eel (due to the eel farming methods, the eel's brink of extinction, and it's connection to very real negative global/ecological consequences) I gave it a good try and ordered alot of different things with 2 non vegatarian friends of mine. Everything was freak'n yummy! The mock eel has an almost identical consistency of texture and flavor as the real thing. The skewers were fantastic. I hope these guys stay open (huge space=high rent and in a reccession = )-: Support good things!

For eveyone who misses Dragonfly, you absolutely have to check out this place now. Just so you know though, its an all vegetarian menu now, with extensive choices. Food is just as excellent, and the portions are generous, also, couldn't ask for better service. Staff is very friendly. Its a lot more spacious now that the couches have been replaced with tables, the beautiful aquarium is still there and the atmosphere is relaxing. Great place for couples to enjoy a nice quiet dinner, or friends to just chill with good food and good drinks.
