Vegans and vegetarians who love Thai food can breathe a sigh of relief. This may look like every other neighborhood curry shack, but there is no fish sauce hiding in the peanut satay nor egg wash coating the spring rolls: Everything on the menu is 100% vegan. Omnivores won’t taste the sacrifice in dishes like a fragrant green curry rife with Japanese eggplant or curried tofu skewers with chunky peanut sauce. If you need a “meat” fix, the light faux-chicken is benign enough; the chewy, heavy faux-steak seitan, however, is best left to the leaf-eaters.

This place is great, though I'm more a fan of the curries and noodles than some of the other things people like on Yelp. The steamed dumplings in curry are especially great.

(NOTE: this restaurant is solidly in Uptown, NOT lakeview)
