Oh I love this place beyond
words. I'm a local vegan and go here at least once a week.
Great selection on the menu, everything ranging from imitation
meat dishes to crisp, fresh veggies. All done soooo deliciously
too. Friendly staff, place is always clean, prices are
It's a small place (but that works for me personally since
it's cozy) but I've never had to wait for a table. Amazing
hot and sour soup (w/o egg, of course) and the black pepper
chicken is fantastic. Also recommended: the dumplings,
spare ribs, duck, and everything else on the menu. Oh...they
have some vegan hot dog and sushi but I've never tired
Also, super-quick if you're doing take-out.

love this place and I'm not even vegetarian OR vegan!
I love the corn chowder they give you at the beginning
(I usually get some to go too) and the scallion pancakes
are amazing! I read a few reviews about the pancakes being
sub-par and I think that maybe the chef just wasn't "on"
that day?? I've never had a bad order of the pancakes.
The orders with fake pork, chicken, beef, etc. actually
do taste like real meat, which is a real plus to someone
who is used to eating meat! The decor makes this restaurant
look like a real hole-in-the-wall but don't let that fool
you. The staff is really friendly. Give Garden Fresh a

Yummy food - ample servings.
Favorites: Corn Chowder soup, Scallion pancakes, Ham bundles
(w/bok choy), veggie "duck" (with mixed veggies),
and one of their board specials - Black Pepper "Chicken".
in the wall vegan restaurant in MV. my favourite dishes
are the veggie ham and the pepper chicken. The hostess is
extremely warm and usually very talkative. make sure you
have cash if you are eating for less than $15.
I was going to give this 4 stars, because I liked it and
definitely want to go back and eat again. Then I remembered
that I completely forgot none of the fried "chicken"
or "chicken" Singaporean noodles were actual "chicken".
I was slightly confused while reading the menu since I was
aware we were going to the Vegan / Vegetarian restaurant.
They had Chicken this and Chicken that. I thought, hmm,
maybe it's one of those Chicken only eating Vegetarian places.
Still it didn't click. I had a long day.
After we ordered the Scallion Pancakes (these are a must-have
here, deep fried goodness), probably one of the most popular
appetizers, Potstickers (thick and yummy), General's Chicken
and Singaporean Noodles with Chicken. Steamed brown rice
comes with the food, as well as hot & sour soup, they
also have tofu and corn chowder. The soup is served in the
beginning as soon as you place your order..
