I love this place! When I am sick of going to not-so-vegetarian places with my friends, I retreat to Zen Palate. Everything on the menu is vegetarian so you wont' be tricked and find a surprise visit from meat of any kind. The service is usually good, with the exception of a couple of waiters on an off night. Nice mellow atmosphere to help calm your nerves. Usually not too busy, I think b/c it is in the middle of Old Country Road and it gets lost in the strip mall location and people don't know what type of restaurant it is.
Pros: Food, prompt seating, calming decor
