We discovered this restaurant more than a year ago while looking for a place to eat w/ my vegetarian brother in law. What a fortuitous find for us. We now stop there pretty much any time we pass through The City near a meal time. They have an extensive menu of vegetarian dishes, including a section devoted to dishes as... More

We arrived mid-afternoon and were alone in the restaurant but it soon began to fill up. The family that runs it was very nice and helpful even suggesting menu items. It was cold and rainy outside and we had some sizzling rice soup which was honestly delicious. I've never had soup in a Chinese restaurant that good. The rice is... More

We all three wanted a vegan restaurant and it was close by and rated. Boy were we pleasantly surprised. Tasty and spicy choices, curries, fried rices, good hot tea.

This small -family owned restaurant is a "pearl" of great atmosphere, amazing food and worm people. The "hot food" is really hot. Great for veggies...

A must and right place for vegetarian diners who love Chinese food (but miss out Chinese food due to limited choices in most of the restaurants). Innovative food preparation and delicious food. Cozy ambiance, good service and reasonable prices.

Our party of seven enjoyed a delicious lunch here. All the food was freshly cooked to order. This is a simple restaurant with welcoming helpful staff. As meat eaters, we found it difficult to believe that the various very tasty dishes were vegetarian.

It was late, they were closing (9pm) but they let us hungry tourists in which was very kind. We ordered quickly from a wide ranging but what we selected was pretty good. The service was friendly. Our main complaint is that many of the options were meat substitutes. To our purist palette this is a shame. We are vegetarians not... More

Excellent food - we had crispy fried tofu, Mongolian beef and some kind of sweet and source walnut dish whose name I forgot. Food was great, service was fast, prices more than reasonable. Got complimentary tea and cabbage salad.

This has been probably one of my top 10 vegetarian restaurants I've been to. The food tastes outstanding and the meat imitations taste extremely realistic. The prices are fair and without doubt, the staff is extremely friendly. Two thumbs up, especially when you like vegetarian food!
