Tried this one and was impressed. The food was excellent. It was very tasty and the faux meat was a great addition to the different dishes we tried. There were more Asians than north americans when we went. Excellent service and very fair prices for the dishes we ate.

Splendid essence has easily taken the spot for best restaurant in my book, The staff are nice, the prices are fair, the food is great and the atmosphere is excellent, and on top of all this they support great foundations, like the free-ranch buffalo ranch in PEI. I would definitely say my favourite food on the menu is the boiled dumplings, and my favourite drink would be the cold coconut milk tea.

Great little spot with a really great veggie/vegan menu. Great service and the large sized meal was a perfect size for a big eater like myself. So glad I found this place while visiting Charlottetown, I'll be going back tomorrow to try more items and pick up lunch before flying out for sure!

It's not everyday you come across the vegetarian Chinese restaurant. Despite our reservations, all the dishes were excellent - I honestly think anything we ordered would have been great. Closes a little early so get there early in the evening to avoid disappointment!
