Worst Food Ever – 1. Difficult to Find - Their Signage was poor. 2. The Food was awful. Ordered Chicken Pad Thai and Chicken Fried Rice. The Pad Thai was spicy and the Rice dish was dry as dirt. Neither had any taste. I'm not even sure the chicken was chicken as it was a "Vegan" restaurant.
3. The owner Victor introduced himself and said he was a 4th Gen Vegan. Hey, great for you, but don't espouse that to me, and don't tell me I should think of changing my lifestyle simply because I made the mistake of coming to your terrible restaurant.
I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Vegan Disaster – Worst vegan restaurant I have ever been to. The soy protein inedible and the spring rolls have the strangest oder i have ever experienced in a restaurant. This place should be avoided at all costs.
Best Chocolate Cake On The West Coast! – It's hard not to order everything on the menu. If you like it spicy they've got it super spicy, if you don't they've got that too. The owner, Victor will greet you with a big smile and shake your hand, thanking you for coming & wishing you well. They have an afternoon buffet if you want to sample things. I highly recommend the Orange Chicken, Chow Mein, BBQ Chicken, Sizzling Seafood, Broccoli Chicken, Spring Rolls, and Wantons. Plus they have the best brown rice I have ever tasted! The Thai Iced Tea is super sweet just how I like it, the Lemon Cake is delicious, and the greatest thing they offer (besides their sweet smiles) is the absolute, hands down, best chocolate cake on this side of the Mississippi! :) It's not exactly cheap, but not going to break the bank to treat yourself, or someone else every now & then. Call a friend and go out to eat. They're open til 9pm (closed for a short time around 2:30 until 4) and closed on Tuesdays :( GO EAT THERE!.....oh, did I mention it's 100% vegan? Don't let that stop you carnivores. I'll bet you can't tell the difference!
Simply Delicious – I am not a vegetarian but I friend and myself went here out of curiousity. From the moment we walked in we knew we were in for a treat, as the aroma of the delicious food hit us. We ordered several dishes, all of which were excellent. I would really recommend the BBQ chicken appetizers and satay appetizer. They have a huge menu, sure to please the pickiest of eaters. The meat substitute is great-chewy and "meaty" in all respects and goes well in all their dishes. The only thing I didnt care for was the "brown rice", which was actually brown rice and other legumes (a nice twist), which lacked flavor. The meals are a bargain and are served in generous portions.
what a pleasant surprise – Great food. The flavor was amazing! Great substitute for not eating meat if you are carnivorous. All the dishes are vegan from the crispy fried chicken (which is very tasty) to yellow curry to the beef and broccoli. All the food is made with meat looking substitutes. Of course, it does not taste exactly like meat, but you don't miss it. Victor the owner is very sweet and kind and a proud vegan.
My absolute favorite place! – Unbelievable, vegan AND delicious! At Wheel of Life, the 'meat' is the star of the dishes and comes in an amazing array of textures and flavors. The sizzling bean curd with basil and the crispy spicy chicken are both favorites of mine. I don't know how they do it, but the fried foods are light and not at all greasy. The fried tofu is an excellent example. It's very light and has a delicious, tangy sauce. Save room for dessert because the "better than cheesecake" is truly amazing.
