Vegan/Vegetarian in Detroit/Northville/Livonia/Novi/Canton area???

My husband and I would like to try something new! We are plain tired of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food. We are looking for places that carry vegetarian or vegan dishes. Please don't list Seva, or Inn Season, or anything like that. We usually eat at regular restaurants that have veg options like Baja Fresh, Taco Del Mar, Al Ameer, Vegan/Veg Cafe, Lai Thai, even Olive Garden and we're looking for something new. I hear Pineland is good, but we just had that type of food yesterday! Any suggestions? I'm at a loss and tomorrow is my hubbies b-day and he wants something new! Thanks bunches!!!

    1. NeeHee's ... Indian (street food)

      NOT fancy. VERY tasty.

        Yeah, you're definitely going to get a lot of "me, too"s from people on this board about Neehee's. I was just there on Friday night with Donna, and once again...just fantastic flavors. From an unabashed, unashamed carnivore like myself to say that, believe me: it's truly something. It's a huge menu...don't be afraid to try stuff that sounds good. I must practically insist that you try the dosa (I really like the masala dosa, myself), but there's so much wonderful stuff there that it's hard to go wrong.

        While it's not necessarily romantic, it's very, very clean, it's well-staffed, and it's certainly the kind of place that encourages sharing dishes between people. I highly recommend it.

        And BTW: I would *never* list that Royal Oak garbage place. I'm well-known for having a well-earned grudge against the place, and would never recommend it to anyone. Neehee's I can recommend to everyone, *and* to anyone. Anybody who claims that they don't like vegetarian food just hasn't been here, or if they have, they're just being stubborn.

            Where is Neehee's? I looked on their website, but couldn't find an address. Now I am even more intrigued to try it.

            1. re: fburks

              It's on the northwest corner of Ford Road and Canton Center Road. Their address is 45656 Ford Road, Canton, MI 48187. It's part of a strip mall, but they now take up two of the strip mall's storefronts, so it's now of decent size for in-store dining.

              BTW, the address is on their website under the "Contact Us" tab. Hope you enjoy it!

              1. re: boagman

                Address is also on their menu page.

                1. re: rainsux

                  Address is also on front of building.


                  I will say that if it is mixed well....the #2 Special Bhel is OUTSTANDING! I have had it prepared by another person that sadly only made it outstanding. No capital letters deserved.
