Usually fast except for today. I used to go to the location on LI which is closed for a while now. The food is basically the same so I am grateful. Hope my food comes soon!

All their entrees and soups are really solid and the kale salad is amazing. I've heard that sandwiches can be soggy but this isn't a sandwich place so what can you expect. They deliver pretty quickly and I live pretty far from the restaurant.

SOOO Good!!!! I ordered the Mango Halo and was really impressed. I often eat vegan dishes that are less-than-fulfilling, but this one left me feeling very satiated & happy :) - The only issue is that a lot of their food is fried, and heavy.

Great Lunch Special! Have been eating food from here for years and it continues to be healthy and delicious. Go with the Lunch Express.

Zen Palate is a good vegetarian option. The sesame medallions are delicious.

The WORST delivery EVER!
Ordered through Seamless Web and the order took over an hour and the food was ice cold.
Zen Palate's excuse was that the delivery guy was new.
Posted 8 months ago by Andrew H.
Delivery estimate was 45 minutes max and the food is still at the restaurant 70 minutes later per the restaurant and they still think it will take another 30 for delivery guy to return and finally come out to us. The only had one guy tonight.

Quick and easy and always delicious. Love the sesame medallions!

Always fast delivery and I'm an addict of the mango dish. Love this place, no complaints

Rated at 20-35 minutes delivery. My first (and last) order took over an hour, and I'm only a handful of blocks away. Food was fine, and I'll still dine in, but never again delivery.

the food came right on time. I was so impressed!! I got the wonton soup, steamed rice and Zenham & Avocado sandwich. The soup was hot and fresh, the spinach in the soup was so fresh. The sandwich was beautiful and delicious, especially the secret spread! I have no bad comments, this place was amazing i will definitely order again!

I liked the vegetable dumplings and the chocolate molten cake. I will be ordering these again.

About eight years ago, I was a huge fan of Zen Palate. I use to go to the ZP in Union Square and also the one on Long Island. By over, the last eight years, I've gone to lots of vegetarian restaurants, and I do not feel that ZP holds it's weight. However, I still like their starters, espeically The Autumn Rolls.

The yam fries are super tasty and thick...the absolute best! The gardenbuger was very tasty, and the sauce on it is just enough - doesn't "weigh" the sandwich down! The bun was good too...sometimes multigrain bread is too "sweet" because "lighter" multigrain bread sometimes has sugar, but this bun was right on the mark. I also ordered the taro spring rolls, and they were flavorful, but REALLY small given the price. Fast delivery, but because I was unimpressed with the taro rolls, I can only give Zen Palate 4 stars.

fake duck wrap is great
Posted a year ago by Chandra B.
Meh, I guess I got what I was asking for by ordering from a place called Zen Palate!
I grew up vegetarian, and am well-exposed to fake meat. I absolutely love the stuff, though it can be really starchy and glutenous (to the point where it actually becomes way more unhealthy than meat!). A great example of this is the famous (or more like infamous) sesame medallions from Zen Palate. I mean, ew. Big, thick, starchy lumps. The sauce was fine, sure, but ick. My arteries were so mad at me for like a week.
Just say no to fake healthy food, New York!

I got the scallion pancake and the brown rice stir fry. The scallion pancake was not what I was expecting since it was pretty different than any other one I have ever had; however, it was still pretty good. The brown rice stir fry was just ok. Usually the best part is eating the leftovers, but I really didn't want to eat these. So I'm not sure I'll ever order from here again.

Everything pretty bland gobo much better.

The food here is amazing. Delivery took a very very long time, but once the food arrived, all was forgiven. Most things are not worth the wait, but they're food is. Sesame Medallions - soooo yummy. All they're food is presented neatly and is very pretty. Always a pleasure to eat in - or order out. They are a bit pricey but you won't get a better Asian vegi meal, anywhere.

GREAT healthy food. Who said vegetarian had to be boring and bland? I'm a definite omnivore, but LOVE ordering from this place! Glad you're back!!!
Posted 2 years ago by Masa M.
One of my favorite places. All the food is veggie but my husband who eats meat loves it too.
Posted 2 years ago by Turan S.
Zen Palate offers a delicious vegan menu, with inspired meals that taste great. I try to eat vegetarian regularly, and ZP doesn't disappoint. (Well, they do ever since they stopped delivering to my address... Sadness!) That said, next time I'm in Union Square I will definitely drop in for a Shredded Heaven and Banana Bliss!

I love Zen Palate, I was so happy when they re-opened a union square location! I especially love the wonton soup, and the moo shoo veggies! Always quick, friendly, customer oriented service.
Posted 2 years ago by Jessica S.
It used to be really great vegetarian food but the last 2 times I ordered, it was really average. Seems standard has dropped since the restaurant last opened to the point where I am no longer inspired to order from.
Posted 2 years ago by CJ C.
Very consistent quality, great presentation. Have been eating at Zen Palette for some 10 years now. I am extremely glad they are once again delivering to the East Village from their new Union Square location. Food is always fresh and delivered quickly. Highly recommended.

Ordered twice from here and both times the food was too greasy and/or tasted funny.

Sawdust and hoisin sauce. Flavorless gross, foul food. If you want food that is shaped like meat and tastes like meat (which this does NOT), order some MEAT. Don't pretend that textured soy protein smothered in sauce is going to fix the fact that this is not meat. This food SUCKS.

They usually forget items, and twice confirmed an order when they didnt have it.

sweet and sour sensation rocks!
Posted 3 years ago by Stephanie K.
Zen Palate, I love you. My order came quicker than promised, and it was hot and delicious. Every part of my meal was wonderful: generous portions, flavorful but not greasy, and super fresh veggies. I'd order from them every day if I could.
Their segmented takeout containers are also great for reusing.

The service at this place is absolutely horrible. I placed an order at 6:30pm and it was not delivered until 8pm. The food was not worth the 1.5 hour wait and there was absolutely no customer service.

Fairly bland, Zen Burger was just a garden burger nothing special

I have had so many bad experiences ordering take-out sushi, but Butai is truly excellent. I have eaten in the restaurant and ordered through SeamlessWeb, and I can say confidently that their food is consistently excellent. It is more expensive than many of the restaurants on the site, but the fish is some of the freshest that I have found in New York, and the sushi is beautifully prepared. The quality is absolutely worth the price.
