This restaurant was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant was easy to find. I had one of their noodle bowls and it was very flavorful. It can be hard to find good vegan food in the area and this one was certainly not a disappointment for my friends in town. They... More

A little hole-in-the-wall place to get a delicious, quick and inexpensive meal before or after a show. Buffet is part of store. Only drawback is very few tables.

With so many great restaurants to choose from in the Times Square/Theatre District, it says a lot that I went back to Green Symphony several times in 3 days for a variety of convenient healthy foods. Staff was great!

We had an early lunch here on Sunday morning. It is a small place with a few tables. It is a bit run down and when we first walk in there is so much stuff packed into this store, I wasnt sure that I wanted to buy anything. The man behind the counter saw me and then handed me a... More

This was our first stop on the iphone maps search for "vegan" and "vegetarian." Coming in from the street we were a little worried, but just walk back to the rear of the small store and you'll see the buffet. This is not a vegan restaurant but they have vegetarian / vegan options including delicious hummus (which is always my... More

Super small place. Staff was not very helpful at first, kind of rude. Smoothies were great. The gluten-free vegan brownie was ok. My friend hated it. I would not ask a a non-vegan to try this brownie! I've had better and it would give veganism a bad rap. I got the avacado fiesta smoothie and my my friend got some... More

Every guest should be welcomed into our shop with warmth and kindness, and if that wasn't the case, then you haven't had our best. That being said, I'm glad you enjoyed your smoothie, and since we have a ton of vegan options, we look forward to having you back to try some more on your next visit. All the best,... More

This is a terrific little cafe/grocery store with tasty options for those of us who are paleo, primal, or gluten free. This place is the perfect prelude to a show and a healthy night on the town.

Smorgasbord of healthy hot and cold options, including tasty homemade treats. Wish we had discovered this earlier in our stay. We will definitely return on our next trip!

The food here is pretty decent - for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. There are quite a lot of options to choose too. Price is also pretty standard by NYC standard. However, please note that the pricing is based on WEIGHT. So, if you choose meat and pastas vs vegetables - as the former are heavier, it'll cost more. My only... More

Thanks for giving our eats a big thumbs up! We take great care to ensure that our vegetarian items don't cross paths with our non-vegetarian dishes, but I appreciate your concern about the sectioning-off dishes. It sounds like you've gotten to try a few of our offerings already, and I'm glad each item you've picked up have hit the spot!... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
