Review: this is a very special restaurant. it focuses on dishes that used to be served to chinese emperors. it wasn't always a vegetarian restaurant. as most of us know, there was no way any chinese emperors were vegetarians. but the owner of this place converted to buddhism and subsequently converted his restaurant to vegetarian only. this has caused considerable decline to his business, but is great news for us vegetarians. the dishes still preserves the original ideals and can fool any meat-eaters. they are quite delicious and unique. the portions are quite small, but this allows you to sample more dishes. it is quite expensive, but i think is well worth it. the waitresses sometimes can be quite pushy, but looking past that, this is an overall excellent restaurant.
