This small -family owned restaurant is a "pearl" of great atmosphere, amazing food and worm people. The "hot food" is really hot. Great for veggies...

A must and right place for vegetarian diners who love Chinese food (but miss out Chinese food due to limited choices in most of the restaurants). Innovative food preparation and delicious food. Cozy ambiance, good service and reasonable prices.

Our party of seven enjoyed a delicious lunch here. All the food was freshly cooked to order. This is a simple restaurant with welcoming helpful staff. As meat eaters, we found it difficult to believe that the various very tasty dishes were vegetarian.

It was late, they were closing (9pm) but they let us hungry tourists in which was very kind. We ordered quickly from a wide ranging but what we selected was pretty good. The service was friendly. Our main complaint is that many of the options were meat substitutes. To our purist palette this is a shame. We are vegetarians not... More

Excellent food - we had crispy fried tofu, Mongolian beef and some kind of sweet and source walnut dish whose name I forgot. Food was great, service was fast, prices more than reasonable. Got complimentary tea and cabbage salad.

This has been probably one of my top 10 vegetarian restaurants I've been to. The food tastes outstanding and the meat imitations taste extremely realistic. The prices are fair and without doubt, the staff is extremely friendly. Two thumbs up, especially when you like vegetarian food!

A family business, keeping it all very real and down to earth. Dishes are tasty and original. Take their word for it when they say a dish is spicy ;)

I have eatten at so many Chinese restaurants that I am convinced I was Chinese in another life. I had two foreign exchange students visiting from Israel and the Netherlands. It did not take long to find a kosher chinese restaurant. The mixed veggie fried rice was spectacular. I cannot believe I am writing a review on rice but that... More
