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.

Definitely agree with the positive reviews. The food is fresh, healthy and light. The service is friendly and prompt. The prices are extremely reasonable (dinner for under $10). The portions arent huge but you wont leave hungry. Something for your belly and your wallet to feel good about!

Zen Palate gone bad. It tries, but the food I received on two occasions was just dripping with oil. So disappointed. It stinks because it's one of the few vegetarian options in the hood.

This is by far my favorite chinese vegetarian restaurant in NY. The taste is excellent for being a vegan. My husband and I order from them at least once a week. Good value for lunch. We love their black pepper soy protein, Orange soy protein (taste better than orange chicken!), hot and sour soup, wonton soup, just to name a few. We never have any bad dishes from this restaurant. The staff provides good and quick service. Great place to bring your kids with you. The place is clean and roomy. The meal is mostly healthy. I highly recomend this restaurant.

After living in London for 10 years (and living on tai food) then moving to brooklyn heights and eating out in some pretty good restaurants in Manhattan over the last 2. This is REALLY great food. No oil, salt. It is healthy tasty fresh, well priced and you order a take away and get the food in 10 to 15 minutes, seriously they are fast. Really tasty, So happy this place opened around the corner from me. These guys have really got the food right. Take out recommended as 1st class.

I have only had take out which I picked up myself. The front desk is quick, computerized and I had my meal in a jiffy. The staff even brought me a glass of water while I waited. They have a reddish brown rice which makes me feel downright virtuous. The wonton soup is fresh, nicely spiced and not pile with grease or salt like the meat version served at other local asian restaurants. The menu has some adventurous choices and the prices are reasonble, considering this restaurant is targeting a more health (perhaps socially conscious) crowd.

The food is very good with a large selection of mock meat and vegetable options. I, myself, don't particularly like mock meat, but I've enjoyed the soups and other vegetable entrees here. Service is attentive and friendly, and the restaurant is clean and spare. The lunch special is a steal.
