I brought my two girls here, not realizing it was a little fancy. But they loved their kid’s meals- who couldn’t love cheese pizza? I got the curry bowl which was fabulous. I was also happy with my glass of red. Chocolate cake for dessert was really delicious. The only drawback to this place is the noise level. It is too loud to have a conversation. Other than that, really great food and lovely ambiance. Tip: make a reservation because there were dozens of people waiting when we left around 7:15.

We love this place. Don't get here too often unless we are shopping in Cherry Creek. I had the chopped salad with shrimp. Very tasty. My wife had another salad. Also very good. Quick efficient service. We ate at True in Scottsdale. Same place as here. Also have tasty fruit juice drinks.

Delicious food that is healthy and includes great choices for my vegan low fat plant based diet. Just because I require a low fat vegan diet doesn’t mean I don’t love rich flavor and yummy sauces and this restaurant delivers!

The horchata wasnt iced which is cool I probably should've asked for it iced but usually with Hispanic culture it's served chilled haha, aside from that staff was friendly but the food was a bit low for the price and I didn't see much quinoa on the quinoa Teriyaki bowl which is a bummer but overall better than most places I've been to imo.

Some of the entrees were truly awful. The edamame dumplings and kale guacamole were fantastic, and I heard the salmon was also good. The Dashi bowl was awful and without flavor. The seasonal salad was a train wreck. Shame on me for having hope that a chef could make horseradish vinaigrette palatable. Roasted mulberries taste like burnt raisins, which I now know. The manager went above and beyond to comp these two entrees after my salad failed to show up through a miscommunication with the server. I appreciated his efforts very much but was heartbroken when I got my seasonal salad home to find that it wasn’t edible. It had all kinds of trendy superfoods in it, but this in and of itself doesn’t not make a great salad. I don’t know if they have a bulk deal with a mushroom distributor, but it seemed like the majority of their dishes included portobellos. I don’t know many people who like mushrooms to begin with, but the menu is definitely mushroom centric. This was my fourth lackluster experience with this restaurant and as much as I want to love it, I won’t be returning. Better to try a more consistent restaurant like Root Down.

Made a Reservation for friends traveling in from San Diego (1 is Paleo and allergic to dairy/soy/gluten). I had to push the Reservation time back twice due to their travel delays and this was no problem and they were very accommodating. I love eating here and the menu had just changed for Fall so it was a bonus. Thanks for another wonderful experience!

Our waiter was wonderful and attentive. I wanted the vegetables of a curry dish but the not-so-spicy sauce of another dish, and ended up with the spice and noodles of another dish. I would have loved an Asian dish that just provides vegetables-no carbs. Sorry if this is insulting, but Tokyo Joe's offers a 'carb-free bowl' which comes with double vegetables, which just makes my toes jump for joy... I didn't want to ruin the moment and was frankly not sure what our waiter had written down, and so I ate half the dish, since the rest was rice noodles.

My vegan boyfriend and I love dining here. We also love bringing our vegetarian and carnist friends and family. I love the sparkling antioxidant tea, avocado kale and chips appetizer, Korean noodle salad, squash pizza with cashew ricotta and the ancient grains bowl. I love how tasty and healthful the food is. The staff is always helpful and kind. We especially enjoyed talking with Bailey.
