We like their sweet soups and different desserts/snacks. Sweet soups have good nutty taste and aroma. Out of the 4 sweet soups we tried, I especially like cashew and black sesame, but the almond and walnut are good too. For bean curb snacks, I like...sweet & sour and curry flavors. But we’re most impressed with the bean curb roll (素扎蹄) - the flavor, the texture - just love it. The coconut cake was also very good. We didn’t get to eat a meal this time. But last time we visited Toronto, we had dinner here and liked it. The staff was really nice and patiently answered our questions on many snack items. When we mentioned we wanted to take bean curb rolls for our trip home, they offered to slice a couple fresh ones for us - easier for us to snack in the car.More

This place offers traditional HK veggie food which is difficult to find in Vancouver and Toronto. They offer varieties of veggie dishes as well as dim sum. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Price was very reasonable and portion was big. There are Buddhism...books available at the entrance as well. We will for sure come back for veggie dim sum.More

Have been taking out our regular orders since Covid, and it became increasingly successful due to their replenishing scarce resources in the beginning, and they now seem fully stocked, and package saucey entrées separately from the xaub

The place was cold so I had to keep my coat on. The server was rude when I asked to swap the rice with tofu she got upset. I told her extra charge me if she wants but instead she opened the menu and pointed...to the items with Tofu instead. I ordered something similar to what I wanted but not happy I couldn’t swap the original order. My friend had noodles with vegetables and he liked it. I ordered the tofu over vegi beef with black bean sauce, usually other places include some green peppers and onions but this dish included none. It was bland and watery. I didn’t enjoy it at all.More

Impossible to walk away hungry! Hearty veggie based dim sum. Friendly staff and relatively inexpensive for the amount of food.

The food is ok ... not great which is really to bad The shrimp dish did not taste like shrimp The lemon chicken was probably the best of a the dishes we ordered The wonton soup was ok, the broth was the best part of...it. The restaurant is very brightly lit , so it makes it feel more like a cafeteria then a restaurant The prices were high for the quality of the food.More

Lots of thing on the menu, it was difficult to decide what to get. I wish there were pictures of the food. The puffed tofu was amazing. The noodles with vegan pork was also amazing. I wish they accepted credit cards or debit.

I’m never disappointed here, just unsure of what to try and always order way too much so some comes home. The tea is great, the turnip cakes are great and it’s always service with a smile. The staff is very tolerant and ever helpful with...my confusion. Knife and fork on request, I cause mirth wherever I go when attempting chopsticks.More

I'd rather go with others so we can split different dishes but this resto is always good to me. I'm not a fan of fake meat but their veggie dishes are satisfying and ample. Tofu makes me happy, what at else is there to say!

Went here on a Saturday night. Very busy and had to wait 5-10 minutes for a table. The food came quickly and was very tasty and reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend it. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the menu choices and even...offered us a taster on the house for desert.More

We tried this restaurant as it was close to our hotel and had been rated at four and a half on TripAdvisor. Wow! So much choice we were in a quandary for about 15 mins before finally ordering. The sweet and sour 'chicken' was incredible....The food arrived faster than McDonalds and tasted WAY better not to mention being a tad healthier. It was the most delicious vegetarian food I've tasted outside of home cooking. I just wish we lived closer so we could visit regularly.More

OK...so going to a vegetarian restaurant is not very high on my list. I'm a carnivore, plain and simple. I was talked into going here by two colleagues and after much waffling, I decided to take the 'why not' approach. I was shocked...pleasantly shocked! We...ordered a few dishes to share and they were all excellent. We tried the sampler dish which had a variety of the 'meat' like veggie options and they were all great. The faux bbq pork was outstanding! We also tried a Cantonese noodle option with veggie shrimp and pork...outstanding. The 'hot plate' of veggie chicken and black bean was also spot on! I was truly shocked at how good the food tasted, being that it was all vegetarian. I will definitely be going there again to try other dishes but I have to admit that there really is no substitute for real meat for me. Should I ever have the misfortune of having to turn vegetarian for health reasons, it's good to know there are places like this!More

Four of us recently enjoyed a family style feast at Vegetarian Gourmet Restaurant on West Beaver Creek. We picked the meal for 4 and then added a simmering hotplate of eel. The dishes included mushrooms and bak chop, jellyfish and chicken strips, celery and bean...curd stir fry, and fried pork cutlet (all the above was vegetarian and made of soy products, but done so effortlessly). It was the best vegetarian meal we had in the last three months, and the price was extremely reasonable. Family owned, the restaurant is warm and inviting, and keeps the focus on hearty food and straight forward service. We loved the meal, and had some extra to take home for the next day too! We hope to be back next week to try a few more dishes!More
