“Amazingly large vegan menu, but not healthy”
Review of Sentosa Restaurant

I'm always happy to find restaurants catering to vegans...this restaurant has a very large selection. The seating inside is very small and I never see anyone in there; seems they cater mostly for takeout. This has to be the most generous of restaurants when it comes to proportion of mock meat--they do not skimp--which sounds like it would be awesome, but actually it turns out to be the opposite. Most meals are really laden with sugar, salt, and oil--more so than any other restaurant in my memory. If you don't order something that specifically mentions vegetables in the title, don't expect to receive any vegetables. I found the General Tsos to be a lot of fried wheat gluten in a soup of corn syrup with about 4 pieces of broccoli. The pad thai is not pad thai at all but instead a mound of singapore rice noodles saturated in salt with a sprinkling of peanut on top and about 4 strips of carrots buried within. The veg beef and broccoli was okay because it had some vegetables in it. The veg chicken with vegetables is also good. The rainbow ribs are good, but again, so unhealthy, it is hard to eat much of it. The portion is somewhat small (it's an appetizer), but it really will need to be split between two people because they are so rich. There can't be any nutritional value in any of this stuff. Unfortunately, they do not sell side orders of vegetables or noodles to help dilute all the unhealthy mock meats drenched in salty/oily/sugary gravy. Every order also comes with a fried vegetable spring roll which just adds to the guilt, but they are pretty dang tasty.

Friendly owners and nice selection of food. Good place for vegetarians. They have some nice seasoning that they cook with.

Owner was super nice! The food was ok but we get Chinese a lot and it definitely wasn't anything to write home about. What we liked was that there were tons of Vegetarian options and since our teen daughter is Vegan, we had a great selection for her and for us too. We only tried the Won Ton soup, Chicken Fried Rice and the Tofu Lo Mein. Perhaps other dishes would be better than average. But again, the service was great. Probably most people come here to get take out but we wanted to eat there. Holds about 24 people. Simple decor but pleasant.

We had lunch at Dentist today. My wife had Lemon Chicken and I had Peking Pork Chop ( menu list Chop but you get 3) with Chicken Fried Rice. All was delicious. The great thing about lunch was the quiet, relaxing feeling.

I love several plates here. The taste is amazing, a mix of salty, sweet, sour and sweet. I am sure you will love it in case you are a fan of good asian food.
