The decor is warm and welcoming, with a wooden banquette along one wall covered with pillows, and an almost hookah lounge feel to it. Not that I've ever been to a hookah lounge, nor is it a smoke filled environment.

every table was filled.
The meal starts out with a complimentary vegan dish of seasoned toasted pita with a small dish comprised mostly of chickpeas, garlic, and onions. Although tasty and a nice way to start the meal, the pita wasn't exactly the right instrument for scooping up the contents. No worries, place settings are available at each seat.
Vegan dessert was of course the chocolate cake. The consistency was almost like a mousse. It was gone in no time. My flying compatriot, (who didn't order a vegan entree, btw, and thoroughly enjoyed his food, in case you're thinking of coming here with a carnivore), thought it tasted a bit "healthy." I know what he meant but since I haven't had a "regular" piece of dessert in so long I only noticed it after he pointed it out, being too busy smooshing the cake/pie around my mouth in near ecstatic savoring-ness. He did finish his half though.
Tula is not a person, it's not "Tula's" Kitchen. As explained on the website, Tula is a sanskrit word for "balance." They certainly have found it here.
