I came here w. my friends the other day. Normally when I eat vegetarian food, I never get the satisfaction of filling my tummy. Gobo was soo delicious that I don't mind becoming a vegetarian.. you must try the pine nuts medley w. lettuce cup, salt & pepper king oysters mushroom, and def the green tea noodles.. great food, save the planet and healthy body what's not to love about gobo.

My friend and I went to Gobo this past Sunday night for a late night snack, and was happy with what we received. The decor is homey and welcoming, complete with a unique juice bar/kitchen counter in the front and an open kitchen. It was quite busy considering it was a Sunday evening, but we were seated quickly. I ordered the refreshing tropical mystic smoothie and my friend ordered the red chai tea that had a zestiness that followed after the first sip. We also ordered the Vietnamese spring rolls - we appreciated the big cucumber slices and the sauce was quite good. For dessert, the pumpkin ice cream was definitely pumpkin-y and the flavor really grew on us, and the apple and pear tart was yummy although I wished they used a different bowl because it was hard to get at. Good service, although I thought they could have been just slightly more attentive. Will come back hungrily!

As a regular visitor to New York from Scotland, we always make time for a visit to Gobo as the food is brilliant. Was disappointed during our recent visit at the end of August as the waitress was not even monosyllabic, she did not actually speak at all other than to take our order.
Whilst the food was great as usual (we thanked the chefs), her attitude and lack of manners did spoil our visit. More customer training is needed as there is plenty of competition out there for fantastic food experiences.

Last night I had a delicious dinner at Gobo in the Village. The food was tasty and creative. We tried Vietnamese spring rolls, pan seared spinach dumplings, scallion pancakes, slow-cooked Malaysian curry, and eggplant stuffed with herbed tofu cheese. Although these choices are somewhat typical, all dishes were prepared very well. The pleasant ambience of the restaurant contributed to an enjoyable meal, except for a very loud couple who was sitting next to us. Because the tables were placed just a few inches apart, it was hard to hear my companion over the high volume conversation going on at the neighboring table. ? And then came a bill with two surprises. Apparently, the restaurant charges $3 for a side order of rice. We weren?t asked if we want rice with our dishes or not, it was just placed on the table. Also, the multi-layered chocolate cake was served with a scoop of ice cream, which we figured was a nice touch. However, that nice touch came at a price of an extra $1. Surprise! I recommend this restaurant for the quality of food and friendly staff, but beware of extra charges.

A friend recommended this place to me. When I first went in, I was very impressed with the atmosphere, though that usually comes with a price, but to my surprise, they were kept fair. I got a saytan dish, it was good, but not something I would really try again, but don't get me wrong, it was of very high quality. Would recommend to anyone of the vegitarean persuasion.

What an incredible experience! My boyfriend and I were walking around looking for a place to eat and we stumbled upon gobo! What a great find, before we were done eating we couldn't wait for the next time we'd come back! Excellent food and service. We both left their full and we want to come back to try everything on the menu! I recommend making reservations though if you can, otherwise there's a wait. Atmosphere was very peaceful and the menu was really helpful with a few definitions for those people unfamiliar with the different kinds of veg foods.

Though the prices can be a bit high and seats need to be cleaned/replaced, the food here is excellent. The flavor diversity always leaves room for discovery even after repeat visits. My boyfriend is vegetarian, I love steak...and yet we both love this restaurant. I don't miss meat at all. They have great smoothies and tonics as well. Good organic beer too!
