Respond to Review of Ever Green Vegetarian Restaurant
by Aya

Review: I had very high expectations for this place, but I wasn't impressed by the food there. It all looked great, but: 1/3 of all the options were not vegan, there were almost no vegan desserts (no vegan cakes), some of the food was bland. There are much better options for vegans in Taipei. I see no reason why I should pay so much (for Taipei standards) for the food that I cannot eat. I would not go there again. Had I known, I wouldn't have gone to Ever Green and would have visited Loving Hut Guangfu more times instead.

I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience at Evergreen, as it's probably my favourite non-vegan restaurant in Taipei. It's true that at least a third isn't vegan, however what makes Evergreen better than other big buffets (such as Jen Dow) is that vegan food is at least labelled (in Chinese) and staff are happy to assist, so you at least know the two thirds that is vegan. There are usually a few vegan cakes for dessert. I see eating at one of these big buffets as a must for anyone visiting Taipei, but I completely agree that there are much better vegan options, such as the Loving Huts, with the Guang Fu store being one of the best.

Hi Aya and everyone
I'm sorry to keep responding to your post. But I just want to come back to say that, having visited again after returning to Taiwan, I found exactly the same thing. I'll write a review myself, but I just want to say that I totally agree, and would now recommend vegans take their time and money to one of many good vegan restaurants instead, of which we all know Taipei has plenty.
