This place went beyond my expectations. I always thought that vegetarian food would be all vegetables, but it's not all vegetables, there's soy protein (vegetarian chicken), seitan (vegetarian beef). Which tasted so good. Lunch special was $5.95 with soup, rice, and entree of your choice. I am proud to say that I love vegan vegetarian food.

My food was just soft, brown, and completely tasteless. My friends' food was barely better. When I tried politely to send my dish back the staff refused, saying there was nothing wrong with the dish. It took so much back and forth to get them to take the food back that I didn't even want to order other food. Instead of offering once and listening to my refusal, they harassed me multiple times about how I needed to order other food and why wouldn't I. In summary, subpar food, no atmosphere, rude service, and a waste of money. More proof that Montague Street has nothing to offer. Walk to another neighborhood.

I don't think I've ever ordered from a place with nicer staff. The amount of food you get for the price is a great deal and I've liked pretty much everything I've gotten here. I order delivery from them, without fail, several times a week and the woman who answers the phone is soooo nice. They're incredibly friendly and helpful every single time. And they have amazing lunch specials! Totally worth a stop in for lunch on the weekend.

A very good value with tasty dishes such as Szechuan style seitan and Malaysian curry. Delivery is prompt.

This place is a serious rip off of Wild Ginger. Wild Ginger is by far the better choice of the two. The peanut butter bomb offered at Vegetarian Ginger is a huge disappointment as it's not the original peanut butter bomb. Please do not order this thinking it is the vegan peanut butter bomb that we all love and adore. There version is expensive and it tastes like cardboard. I wish this place could find their own identity.

I just moved to the hood -- I used to go to this place when it was The Greens -- which I loved -- and was pleasantly surprised to see that vegetarian Ginger isn't some wanky subpar replacement. It's fresh, tasty and fairly healthy. I used to live near Zen Palate in midtown and this is MUCH BETTER. Best dishes: Black Pepper Seitan, Sizzling Platter Soy protein (better than it sounds), Malaysian style curry is really good too. Love this place & lunch specials are super great bargain

I've lived in NYC forever and have never been a frequent takeout/delivery person. But, I'm hooked on this place. Delivery is always prompt and even exceptionally fast at non-peak times (like lunch on weekends--but they still have their lunch special). I've liked everything I've had, but I real love the hot and sour soup, the spinach dumplings (steamed) and the General Tso's Soy Protein. I am veggie, so the abundance of veggie choices is great. As a female, I think the portions are huge. All dinner entrees are two meals for me, and I can never eat the whole lunch special (w/the soup). So, for me, it's a great deal. I live between Vegetarian Ginger and Wild Ginger, and I prefer Vegetarian Ginger.
