I was blown away by the choices, the service, and the food! At 5 pm, there was a bit of a lineup in this buffet style restaurant. My food choices were dished out by a friendly server. I had Thai veggies and brown rice with...a falafel and a beautiful green salad. Not sure what the rest of my family had, but they were impressed with everything except for the macaroni salad. We paid according to the weight of the food. Later we went back for dessert which was also delicious. The meal was relatively inexpensive! Whenever I am in Victoria, I will stop here. See you this evening Green Cuisine because we will head back to the north island in the morning.More

Followed through on a suggestion to go here for a vegan meal was not disappointed! Friendly staff, wide variety of delicious vegan choices - soups, salads, entrees, desserts, etc! It was hard to decide, but finally settled on curried yam soup & cornbread, Caribbean tofu,...tempeh, kale and fresh homemade slaw. They have a bright spacious dining area so you can sit and have your meal in a relaxed setting. It was also very nice to not be subjected to invasive questioning about one's personal health status in order to dine in this restaurant.More

Green Cuisine is a very unassuming restaurant on the lower level of a downtown development along with other cafes. However, it has a loyal following for good reasons. Your choices include a self-designed salad, hot entrees and pizza along with their own vegetarian and vegan...deserts. The salad bar includes their own cole slaw and potato salad, among other selections. Dine in (two rooms) and take-away. We loved the pizza, in particular, and the hot vegetables. It’s all a little beige but still quite tasty.More

I wish every city had a restaurant like this. Vegetarian/gluten free comfort food, kombucha, cashew date dairy free ice cream, baked treats, excellent coffee, wonderful tea selection. Lots of fresh salads, curries, stews and more by weight. African, Thai, Indonesian, Korean, Latin dishes by weight....All vegan. Great soups. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Very kind staff. Many came sugar-free sweet options. Highly recommended- my favorite place in Victoria next to Be Love.More

This is a vegetarian and gluten free diner's heaven. Wide selection of items that were fun, interesting and unique. Dessert and cookie selection was amazing...tried a few. Little hard to find (go down the stairs and itsin main courtyard area), and there might be a...line but SO worth it.More

The food is good, although it is nor organic. But the atmosphere is crappy. The place actually stinks. There’s a horrible smell that comes from the bathroom area and permeates most of the restaurant. There’s also a lot of mould in the place. The bathrooms...are not clean, and the tables were not wiped off. In the the era of Covid you think they would take a little more effort to keep the place clean.More

Discovered this restaurant when I moved to Victoria a few months ago. Since then I visit at least once a week. Great choice of food on the buffet rotating often. My favorite is the pad Thai and the pesto pizza. Their ice cream is to...die for, especially the mint, mocha and London fog flavours. Large selection of cakes and pastry, I have never been disappointed so far. Their juices and smoothies are also delicious! I would definitely recommend this place!More

I forgot how much I love this place! Buffet style delicious, fantastic vegan food, including an amazing dessert bar. I'd been telling my bf about it and it surpassed his expectations. Beautiful nature murals painted on the wall; a huge selection of teas. I wish...Nelson had a Green Cuisine. I'd be in there like a dirty shirt!More

After seeing so many great reviews I had high expectations. I went a little too close to closing time maybe, so the food was no longer super hot. I didn't find the selection of food to be amazing, and didn't find the quality to be...great either. It was ok. I have been to much better vegetarian buffets elsewhere (not in Victoria). I found the service slow. No help to tell you where to get water or anything helpful. Then there was someone doing all kinds of cleaning all around me while I ate which kind of ruined the experience.More

The smoothie was nice. This place does nothing for me. I have visited 4x for If I was invited to someone’s house that looked and smelled like this place I would leave. The booths are either rotting in the corners, mould, or just really filthy....The price of a plate does not reflect the decor. Many different flavours in the buffet, however, the three people in front of me dribbled so much from dish to dish I avoided the buffet. I opted for a few bites of sushi, and a quinoa cake. Hmmmm..... i suppose it ended in the compost.More
