The food rocks...lots of choices.
I was very impressed that they sat food out for those in need, wow talk about a warm and fuzzy feeling !
The wait staff are far from warm and fuzzy but ,the food makes up for it.
At least give them a try, I don't think you'll regret it.

I'm sure the people who run Veggie Heaven have good hearts, as they always have free rice for the many homeless people on the Drag, but they are not the bubbly, friendly, smiley type of people who serve you. That said, the food is great and decently priced. I've been coming here for 8 years and I will definitely keep coming back.

This is my number 1 favorite restaurant in the city of Austin, as well as the entire country. They offer the BEST vegan food anywhere. They're food is super cheap and they're menu is huge. It's nice to feel assured that everything you're eating is vegan! EAT HERE.

I went to lunch with 3 friends. We ordered 3 different dishes - I ordered the supposedly spicey tomato dish #27 & one of us ordered the eqqplant & tofu dish - I can't remember what the other person ordered. All 3 dishes were virtually inedible. They had a really bad flavor like they had been doused with a sauce made from dirty socks soaked in water. My spring roll at least was edible, but very greasy.
Similarly, I had a bland experience the last 2 previsous times I ate here, even though I ordered dishes that were alledgedly ""spicey""
I used to come here frequently for Cathay Fajitas, but I will never dine here again!
Our server was borderline rude & not very diligent about refilling our water glasses.

I never write reviews of this sort, but I was galvanized to do so by reading the first review that I encountered on this site while looking for Veggie Heaven's phone number. All I would say to the vegetarians out there is that this restaurant is NOT a hip dining spot, at which you enjoy an aperitif while commenting on the flawless decor and charming waitstaff. However, if you are a vegetarian who appreciates great food, low prices, prompt service, and a menu that is composed entirely of vegetarian options, this is the restaurant for you. Additionally, their service is so expedient it is unlikely that you will have to wait on a parking spot for longer then a few minutes even during peak dining hours.

I just went to Veggie Heaven again today, and although their food is decent, I have to agree with most of the other reviewers that say the food is predictable. I have ordered several different dishes and they're right - one dish tastes like the next. And the next. And the next. But, predictability is sometimes a good thing - no matter what you order, your food will taste the same - and you can't beat the price.
The service is TERRIBLE. They're just churning customers through to make the extra buck. ""Sit down, order, eat, pay, and GET OUT"" is the definite unspoken rule: Snarf down your meal and leave in order to make room for the next customer. The check is brought to you immediately after they serve your food and they NEVER ask if they can bring you anything else! Make a unique request and you get stared at like you're an alien.
The ambiance is blah. Not that the place is dirty or filthy, but I do get that ""greasy spoon cafe"" feeling in there. One thing the owners could do is to perhaps have a small stereo with some background music of some sort. I mean, come on, how much would it hurt to spring for a $14 cheap stereo at WalMart?
But the worst thing about Veggie Heaven? The parking. It's ATROCIOUS! When I got there (at 1:30 p.m., AFTER the lunch rush), there was absolutely no parking in their lot, and I felt very lucky to get a place on Guadalupe (for which of course I had to pay). Two things happened that made me realize the ownership/management couldn't care less about their customers' ability to park in their lot. First, a lady walked in and told the group she was meeting that she couldn't join them because there was no parking and she had circled the block for forever, to no avail. Later, I observed a car drive in, stop in their parking lot, and drop off a girl who promptly got into HER car (parked in VEGGIE HEAVEN'S lot), and drove off. Hello Veggie Heaven! Folks are using your lot for other purposes and you're not TOWING like your signs claim you do!

I'm not a vegan or a vegetarian, and I don't usually eat or even like tofu, but Veggie Heaven is my favorite restaurant by far. Whenever I'm in Austin, I must stop by Veggie Heaven. Their food is amazing! My favorite dish is the Four Seasons. I've brought friends there who have expressed their hesitation since they don't usually eat dishes that are vegan, and they all enjoyed it. It's truly an Austin-ish restaurant.
