Review: Good friendly homely restaurant. Our only experience with Buddhist cuisine was Chinese Vegetarian restaurants in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, London, Florida, etc... and one reason we sometimes eat there is because they don't use onions and garlic, which we strictly avoid too (these are foods that bind us strongly like ropes to materialistic life)... so we just say "no mushrooms no fungus no eggs please" (these are foods in the mode of darkness)... here the dishes were full of onions and garlic. The chef prepared a meal without, but it wasn't quite the same after the shock of that heavy taste in the mouth in the first bite. We paid though, because honestly there is no strict definition of "Buddhist" cuisine, almost anything goes, many buddhists eat meat as a matter of course. So, anyone else going there, if you don't want onions and garlic, please say so upfront.
