Service was frinedly, but I hated the food. It was so heavy and I think that tofu sauce is absolutely disgusting. My girlfriend and I only had 1 bite, and they wouldn't give us ...

A Guilt-Free Delight!!!!! 4/27/2008

This is my favorite vegetarian restaurant! You have to try the bowl of Greens! It is so delicious my mouth is salivating as I write this review!!!!!!!!! :) Aside from the food, and decor is fun and it's within walking distance to the beach but the indoor sitting is small and the service has always been bad (the waiters never smile) but the last time I went there (a few weeks ago), the service was remarkably good! The waiter was very friendly and SMILY and our food came out very fast! I think all of the bad reviews about their service might have reached management because I really noticed a difference in their attitude! Pros: Food Cons: Small indoor dinning area more

Too cool for customers 1/4/2008

Very good food. Stuck up service and usually very slow. Fair prices. Closed at 4 pm really means 3:30 pm but you should know that cause they gotta eat lunch too! (that's what we were told). Have actually left before without service because we were ignored for so long. Watched the waiter bus tables instead of servicing us (the place was empty). Pros: food Cons: service more

Close to heaven! 7/14/2007

So, I'm going here tonight, and I'm just so excited! I love the veggie fair, it's healthy, it's super tasty, and really creative. The staff is friendly. And you feel really good about what you are eating! The Sproutata is one of my favs. I love the tahini dressing! The local is great too! Just steps from the beach and charming Riviera Village. Portions are generous, and the prices are great too. I just feel so relaxed whenever I walk in! While I do eat meat, I don't eat wheat or dairy, which makes this place a double blessing! Heaven on earth? It's close. Pros: DELICIOUS! Grate value Cons: none that I can see more

Best Vegetarian Joint so far! 2/15/2007

First let me say this- I'm a MEAT LOVER! I can't do without some good old fashioned meat. But somehow, the Green Temple makes me forget that it's strictly vegetarian and that I am eating tofu all the way. The White Lasagna is the BEST dish here. The veggie meatloaf is a close second. The salad dressing is so fresh. The Green Temple breaks the vegetarian tasteless food mold. It's SO tasty, affordable and makes you want to come back for more! Even if it is just vegetarian! What a delight! Pros: Delicious even for a meat lover Cons: Expand your restaurant more

Not the right restaurant for me 12/30/2006

Service was frinedly, but I hated the food. It was so heavy and I think that tofu sauce is absolutely disgusting. My girlfriend and I only had 1 bite, and they wouldn't give us any refund. Also, the menu is very limited and it might be ard to find something that you would like. I would definatley not reccomend this place although some people do love it. more

awful customer service 11/21/2006

great food-awful service--could the girls that work there give anymore attitude or act like I didn;t exist as I went to pick up my take out order? be prepared to wait for service more

Slice of Heaven 11/16/2006

We drive 40 miles one way to eat here. Thats how good the food is. Pros: everything Cons: i dont live next door :) more

Great Food 10/30/2006

I recently celebrated my birthday here and I had a wonderful experience. I brought along my all-Carniverous family and they loved it as well. I have had many dishes here: nachos, white lasagna, enchiladas, steamed veggie bowl, wraps, salads, and soups...all delicious. The green iced tea with honey is delicious. Go here now! =) Pros: food, price, service more

EXCELLENT!! 5/24/2006

It's initially hard to find because it's tucked away in a corner, but once you find the green temple, it's noticably unique. The servers come to you right away and answer any questions you have. I love their ""a la carte"" menu for a small 1/2 portion lunch. Their avocado sandwich, nachos, and fresh squeezed juices are delish. At the green temple, i can glance around at the beautiful decor and eat equally delicious food. Pros: delishious food, affordability, ambiance Cons: hard to find @ first more

WORTH THE DRIVE!!!! 6/17/2005

I live out near Pasadena and My boyfriend found this place on city search for me. I dont eat meat & he does. So we decide to take a chance and make the long drive to the Green Temple. The restuarant is small but the setting in the patio was cozy and had a tranquil. The central fountain added to the ambiance. My boyfriend being a meateater was plesantly surprised at how much he enjoyed the food eventhough it was strictly vegetarian. The server was excellent! They even offered the reciepe for their ToFu cream sauce, which was to die for! I loved it so much that they gave me some to go for a small fee. Bottom line is Great Food, Great service and my boyfriend and I will definetly make the drive again!....(FYI ...try the white lasagna it's sooooooooooo delicious!) Pros: Good Value, Fresh food, knowlegable Staff Cons: none that we noticed more

GREAT VEGGIE FOOD!!!!! 5/16/2005

I've been going to the Green Temple since it opened years ago. Since then the food has ALWAYS been great! The owners are awesome! Decor is very 'different' and 'exotic' - reeeealllly nice! I love this place! Even though they are very reluctant at first, my non-vegetarian friends LOVE this place-they never thought vegetarian food could be so good! Recommend this restaurant to ANYONE! more

Allmost perfect... 1/29/2003

This place has GREAT vegetarian food and the atmosphere is relaxing and exotic. On the downside the staff is cold and rude. When you ask them questions about items on the menu they get very impatient. They also make you feel like they want you to get in, eat in a hurry and leave. Pros: Good food, Inexpensive, Relaxing Atmostphere Cons: Small, Rude service more

exotic, charming, and tasty 1/28/2003

It has a friendly staff and a cozy calm soothing atmosphere with a little fountain and Indian drapy exotic feel. My husband is a vegetarian, but I'm not, and I still loved the food. It has a good wide range of types of filling veggie food. (i love the sproutada). Price is good, too. Pros: great natural food, great atmosphere, knowledgable service Cons: not much indoor seat more

Hidden Treasure! 9/4/2002

This place is my favorite vegetarian restaurant around! It's hidden on a corner, with the coolest ambience and great vegetarian food (try the corn bread and honey cola)!! Very cheap - a couple can get in and out for under $10, no kidding, but a different and enjoyable dining experience. We go about once a week and absolutely love it! Pros: Great Food, Different, Inexpensive Cons: Limited Parking, Limited Seating more
