We tried to go last night (after reading the recommendation in latest Lonely Planet) but it was all shut down, the doors barred, and a notice in Chinese on the door which I imagine says something along the lines of "closed until further notice".

Pricey! But worth it, it is a vegetarian buffet restaurant when the foods offered are always updated with newer dishes. Like the freshly wrapped sushi cone.

It has closed down due to loss of lease. We came quite a way across the city to eat here (and temple visit) but found it shuttered and a notice up in Chinese to that effect.

From our perspective, the food was OK; nice buffet, many dishes to choose: soups, tofu, cakes, cookies, salads, etc. Very crowded sometimes. Food price is good. Take a chance to visit it if you go to Guozijian, recommended for large groups or couples.

If you are a meat-eater, then you must go here to see what vegetarian food can be. Be early for the lunch buffet because it's very popular.

We went for lunch and it was a large buffet with many vegetarian dishes. At lunch it was very popular and we had to wait a moment to get a table. A nice assortment of foods with many tofu "meats." No complaints. My review might be higher if I wasn't a carnivore at heart. Great variety however for my husband,... More

We went for lunch and really enjoyed the buffet. There was an amazing variety of dishes with desert as well as mains. You would be hard-pressed if you couldn't find something you liked here. One tip, get there early. The food was not quite as hot as we would have liked it.

This largely vegetarian restaurant is located almost opposite the Confucius Temple. We stopped here for lunch after seeing the Lama and Confucius Temples. It is a large restaurant but was packed at lunchtime and we had about a ten minute wait for seats. The meal was buffet style and relatively inexpensive. There were a number of vegetable, salad, rice and... More

Overall I'm happy with my experience at this place. I usually try to avoid spending too much at restaurants and this place is a great value. The buffet offers mostly imitation meats made of wheat and soy, including beef, pork, chicken, fish, even recreating sushi sashimi and pepperoni pizza. There are some non "meat " veggie dishes as well, and... More

Cheap (¥68pp), cheerful, tasty, plenty of choice for vegans too. The evening buffet (after 5.30pm) is quieter than lunch. It is Buddhist so don't expect alcohol.
