Restaurant Reviews

The restaurant review group visits restaurants that may not be purely vegetarian, but which offer some vegetarian fare. The restaurant must offer at least one vegan (no dairy or eggs) main course option. Details on how the ratings are calculated are listed at the bottom of this page. Archived reviews for closed restaurants are available; if you have knowledge that any of the restaurants listed below have closed, please contact us.

We judge a restaurant by the following five categories:

The rating in each category goes from 1-Exceptionally bad, to 5-Exceptionally good. The overall numerical ranking of the restaurant is a weighted average of the individual scores in the categories. The categories are weighted as follows: Food - 30%, Variety - 30%, Vegetarian Sensitivity - 20%, Price - 15%, Service - 5%.

TVS does not officially endorse any of the establishments listed here; our reviews are simply a public service for the vegetarian community. They are based on the experiences of a small group of people for one meal at the restaurant.
