Fantastic, inexpensive and healthy (las in not too salty) vegetarian Chinese food, including great classic dishes--steamed dumplings, eggplant with garlic, scallion pancakes, etc; great specials like spicy zucchini apps and mushroom soup ; and , for the adventurous, surprisingly delicious "mock meats."
This is our go-to intown vegetarian restaurant. The food is so awesome and the staff is super friendly. We usually order delivery and the order arrives quickly. Try it!

So take your everyday chinese takeout joint (and I mean a good one) and replace everything on the menu with nothing but vegan and gourmet ingredients and there you got Green Sprout. Let me not beat around the bush and tell you I love this place. I'm not a devout vegan, but it doesnt matter, the food is the bomb. I had the empire chicken with the curry spring roll as an appetizer, and a mango bubble tea to accompany it. I had no complaints, the server was very helpful even though the service wasnt as fast as I would have liked it to be. It's not an upscale place, just your regular chinese joint with regular chinese joint prices and food that is fresh, well cooked and vegan. And trust me when I say that you don't need to be a vegan to like it.

This is one of the best vegetarian places around! Delicious, Affordable, Excellent Service, and did I mention Delicious! I am the only non vegetarian in my family of four and was amazed at the taste of my Orange ""Chicken"". The fried eggplant was divine, and my son's Orang ""beef"" was tasty and spicy and the texture was very ""beef like"". Amazingly delicious food and great prices. This is a MUST TRY for anyone who has heard that vegetarian food is boring and bland! This type of food could even convert me to not eating meat!!

I've been to Green Sprout twice now and have loved it both times. Everything on the menu is vegetarian and many things include some kind of mock meat (an amazing variety here - chicken, beef, shrimp, squid, salmon filet - hope I'm not forgetting anything). I'm a vegetarian, but both times I went I was with three omnivores who thoroughly enjoyed the food. I didn't think I'd get to eat General Tso's chicken again!

The food was truly amazing, fresh, creative recipes with meat substitutes so you're not stuck eating 'tofu' like a lot of other places offer as a vegetarian option. The owner/management was SUPER friendly and patient when explaining and recommending dishes based on our tastes. I actually live 4 hrs away from this place in Charlotte, NC and this place was recommended by some friends. I visited the Green Sprout while staying with my sister in Atlanta, and cant wait til I'm down there again!

I highly recommend GS. I have been going here regularly for about two years and have never been disappointed.. All of the dishes are good, but my favorite is the ""beef"" and veggies with tempura fried eggplant. The menu is completely vegetarian, but most dishes have mock meat. Eddie, the owner, remembers everyone and the service is fast. I think the thing that sets GS apart from other veg restaurants is the quality of the food. The veggies are extremely fresh and the ""meat"" is good even for carnivores.

I probably have eaten/taken out from here more than any other restaurant. The servers are friendly and helpful, the food is good, and the prices are reasonable. As with most veggie chinese places, the best dishes are those with vegetables themselves. My favorite dish has butternut squash and is amazing. If you're feeling adventurous, the best fake meats are the shrimp and anything fried. This place is not quite as good as Harmony, but it's more in town and definitely a close 2nd.
