My favorite Vegetarian Restaurant – I am addicted to grasshopper, it's is the most delicious vegetarian chinese food. It has a good variety of mock meats as well as dishes with fresh vegetables in recognizable form, appealing to both types of vegetarians.

My favorite dishes are the vegetable dumplings (hot and spicey, so good on a cold day), the no name (DELICIOUS sweet and sour Gluten), the spring rolls, and the Vermicelli dishes.

The walk from the T is a little long, but it's definitely worth it, for the food.

Unique, good for one visit – The location is easy to find. Service was quite good, and the waiter answered our questions happily. We started out with the seaweed salad (which had been recommended), which was tasty. I ordered a setan faux-chicken curry dish, and my wife ordered a faux-shrimp dish. Both were "interesting", although bared little resemblence to their meat cousins. Food was not as flavorful as would expect given the downplay of the meat ingredient. Although I would recommend this place as one that is unique and worth a visit, I would expect only hardcore vegetarians and/or students would really enjoy it. I would have been happier with far fewer selections (even 50 would have been fine!) and much higher in the taste department. The quality of the food ingredients itself were just average. There is nothing gourmet about the food, preparation or ingredients here.

jerks. – I visited Grasshopper with four of my friends and we all agreed the service was the worst any of us had ever had. It took them 20 minutes to take our order, we were never asked if we needed anything, they gave us a dish that we had not ordered and they did not believe us until they checked the order for themselves. We each ordered dessert and they came back ten minutes later and said there were only two left. We said that was fine, only for them to come back again to say there was only one, and finally to say there was nothing. They were very curt, even grabby, there were no apologies, and we were all very polite with no harsh words for them at all. Therefore I am leaving these.
