Really fresh good quality food from family run restaurant. Highly recommend you try it while in St. John’s. We tried the Singapore rice and vegan “chicken “ balls. All great

No reservations! We would happily have had dinner here - but they don't take reservations. A pity, as it sounds very good.

Friendly, warm environment on a cool and blustery day. The warm tea when we first arrived was most welcome. Great food and lots of variety. Very nice

The food and service was outstanding. It may not look like much when you walk in but the food and server are outstanding. Plus we had enough food leftover for lunch the next day. Highly recommend you keep room for dessert!

Upon arrival the owner sat me at a window seat, proceeded to bring me hot green tea and the appetizer squash soup with condiments. I asked for his recommendation, he asked if I prefer rice or noodle, and based on my preferences recommended the Singapore...Noodles. I’ve been to lots of vegetarian/vegan places in BC but have never tasted anything as flavorful, nor been treated so hospitable as at A Peaceful Loft. The owner also brought me a sweet orange to finish off my meal which I wasn’t able to finish as the portion was so huge I took home 1/2 in a takeaway box. Everything is made in house. So many options for various dietary needs (gluten free, etc). And you can’t beat the prices for such delicious quality food. I will be back the next time I’m in St. John’s. Chef’s kiss!More

Amazing spot in St-Johns. The owner was so welcoming and he gave us free soups and tea. The meals were super tasty, big portions. The price is very fair. I forgot my wallet and the owner waited for me after he closed... so sweet. 10/10...all the way! Thanks you 🙏More

Friendly staff greeted me with fresh bowl of soup and tea. My vegan dish was amazing and so were the fresh side sauces. Highly recommend for vegan diners!

Went to this restaurant twice based on the Reviews we read for a restaurant serving gluten free dishes. It was a real find since they are truly vegan based on the Chinese definition, meaning also no garlic or onions which I also need to avoid....It’s a small place and run by a husband and wife team, so be prepared to wait or to be told they are too busy. Arranging for Take Out is the best option unless you go early.More

Our visit to Peaceful Loft was the strangest dining experience I've ever had. After reading the rave reviews, we dropped in for lunch. We sat down and were greeted with bowls of some sort of bland squash soup and a trio of mystery sauces which,...while pretty, were rather tasteless. The menu was incomprehensible (everything sounded alike) so one of us ordered the crispy noodles and the other ordered something called "Toon" (I think, I'm not sure), with a side order of dumplings. We received green tea in our glasses, which were kept full the entire meal. The dumplings arrived and we were dumbfounded - they looked like wads of old pie dough smushed together and fried. We tasted them, and found the filling to be inedible. They were just gross. Our main dishes arrived. The crispy noodles looked beautiful but were tasteless and the owner would not leave my friend alone, encouraging her repeatedly to mix up the crispy noodles with the sauce so that they would become soft. He was so insistent that he almost took the fork from her hand and did it himself. We were by ourselves in this little restaurant, with horrible food and a proud owner and didn't know what to do. We ate enough to be polite and had to tell him four times that we did not want to take the leftovers with us. I run a cafe in my home town and know how much hard work is required; I always give the restaurant/cafe the benefit of the doubt. But the food here was just awful - every single thing we tried was inedible. Not simply unpleasant, it was awful. I'm not sure what other people are ordering here, but it wasn't the dumplings, crispy noodles or toon.More

No idea how this is the #1 rated restaurant in St. John's. Must be all the fanboys leaving bias reviews. The staff were very nice just the food was terrible. Completely flavourless bland oil soaked food. Wouldn't recommend.

Wonderful tasty vegan food. We were a bit suspicious of the “vegan meat” description having had some bad experiences with that term elsewhere. But this was delightful. Very delicious, reasonable prices, and attentive service.

Amazing vegan Asian restaurant...what a gem to be tucked away in downtown St. John's! Must try their BBQ Pork and Chicken with mushrooms. The service is outstanding - owners are a couple who operate and cook everything themselves. The quality of food and depth of...flavours are amazing.More
