Pan Fried Rice Noodles

I've tried plenty of vegan restaurants in San Diego over the years (a lot of which feature rice or noodle based dishes) and these are still the best fried noodles I've ever had. It might sound like a simple dish, but this is seriously the best thing on the menu because of how good the noodles are. Last time we came I had my non-vegan dad try these and he loved them too. Would recommend this place to vegans and non-vegans alike, 10/10 .

Avocado Rolls

Let me tell you...these creamy, buttery, crispy avocado rolls are enough to make a visit to this incredibly clean, friendly restaurant! I'm not vegan/vegetarian but now I'm second guessing! I live just down the street and this place is now my local favorite! The lemongrass chicken dish is another superb entree ! Keep doing what you're doing, Purple Mint, we love it!

Avocado Rolls

These are seriously the best "guilty" pleasure. They're savory and buttery. They always satisfy my craving for comfort food or something fried without leaving me feeling too heavy or shameful afterwards.

Sizzling "Steak Filet Mignon"

I've been going to Purple Mint for a few years now, and love the food at both locations. I usually bring a friend to share a couple of items. We almost always try to have something new, as well as various favorites which is usually the vegan steak filet mignon. I've never had real steak, but I'm a picky eater and love it, so you know it has to be good! I have many friends come with me, both veg and non veg who try it, and love it. Many say it tastes like the real thing. Everything we've tried is great! We prefer things with the meat substitutes, but there are plenty of vegetable dishes too. It's great to find a place that's so yummy, with healthy food, that we feel good about eating. I love the saying live cruelty free, and Purple Mint helps me do just that. There's plenty to eat without eating meat! I'm so glad I found Purple Mint!

Summer Rolls

The summer rolls were awesome. So good we ordered some to take home. The sauce on the orange chicken was so fresh tasting with orange peel strips and served on Orange slices. This was our first time at The Purple Mint, but will not be our last!

Fiery "Shrimp"

This dish is amazing. The texture of the shrimp was spot on. The taste was perfect. Just spicy enough to get your attention. The staff is attentive and friendly. I will be back.

"Prawns" in Garlic Noodles

The purple mint is one of my favorite vegan restaurants in San Diego. I was so happy to find it. They provide a spacious and peaceful ambience where you can take your partner or family and have a delicious meal in a place that isn't crowded or loud. The food is so delicious. I've never had a bad meal before. They also have delicious desserts and teas. I love the garlic prawns and noodles dish but they also have delicious curries and soups and so many yummy appetizers. You have to come here if you want a vegan meal in San Diego!

Lemon Grass "Chicken" or "Beef" or Tofu

I absolutely adore the purple mint! From the calming energy and the nature aspect they put into the ambience. To the food, which is quick to come out and quality is absolutely amazing and unreplicated! I've been back several times now with friends and family and I love to give them the vegan wow factor when I pick a place to eat, and this place never fails me.

Orange "Chicken" Meatless

I am a meat eater looking for ways to transition to more of a plant based diet. Hello to the perfect entry point: PurpleMint's Orange Chicken! It's delicious taste and texture are spot on versions of the real thing! With this dish I can fully enjoy all the flavor without the guilt of negative impact on my health, environment and animal suffering. Count me in!

"Prawns" in "Lobster" Sauce

I love the concept of this restaurant and making a vegan version of all types of Asian inspired dishes. The "prawns" in lobster sauce was delicious. I also had the "egg drop" soup. That is something I used to get all the time at a Chinese restaurant and I absolutely loved it! Everything on the menu looked so good it was hard to decide what to have. I can't wait to go back to try something else!

Pho "Chicken"

We come here at least once a month and the "chicken" pho is my favorite, especially on rainy days! I love the broth and all the toppings it comes with (lime, basil, jalapeño, etc.). When I order I ask for Chicken and veggies and I always add in their hot sauce. So good!

Yam & Sweet Potato Curry

We love The Purple Mint. I especially love the atmosphere with two children it's nice to come into a restaurant where there's comfort, cleanliness, and cool decor they can appreciate. This dish is a hit with my daughter, she says it's warming and fills up her belly! We'll be back for sure! Maybe another vegan chocolate slice of cake for me next time too!

Sizzling "Steak Filet Mignon"

I can't seem to quit ordering this! I've had several other menu items equally as good, but this always hits the spot. I didn't quit eating meat because I didn't like it, I quit for health. This, among other meaty dishes here (orange chicken) satisfies my meat craving every time. All of my meat eating friends that I've brought here can't believe vegan food could be this good. I love the staff...they are always kind and helpful with unfamiliar menu items. Great environment!

Kung Pao "Chicken"

The king pao chicken is really good! Super crispy and flavorful! If you're vegan or veg Italian and have missed the taste of aíslan comfort food this is a great dish to try

Kung Pao "Chicken"

I've gone to Purple Mint MANY times. Everything I have ordered has been fantastic. The ingredients are fresh and the recipes are full of depth. The texture of their vegan chicken is ON POINT. It is stringy and chewy like I remember chicken being, no sponginess whatsoever. You can't go wrong with what you order here. It is truly my favorite restaurant.

Avocado Rolls

I'm always on a hunt for Vegan Thai food And I'm happy purple mint is in San Diego. OMG I go here just for the avocado rolls, Thai tea & orange chicken plate. My sisters and I are obsessed! Never disappoints! Friendly waiters, amazing vegan food. I'll be eating there sometime soon.
