Respond to Review of CLOSED: Ba Bo Jai Chinese and Vegetarian Cuisine
by vegan frog
Review: We went to Whole on Beach Avenue for the first time today. It is pretty much the same menu as Whole on Main, but the restaurant itself is a bit more upscale. Real fabric napkins and table cloth, it looks much nicer even though they kept all the artifacts of the previous Thai restaurant, including the map of Thailand! The food was good, not amazing and the service was good. We had to ask what was vegan because the menu does not identify clearly the food and that's slightly annoying. We stuck with what we knew. Tofu rolls in black been sauce, deep fried tofu and seaweed (made to taste a bit fishy), green beans, and we tried the tofu in sesame sauce dish that had to be sent back as it contained veggie ham, which is not vegan. All in all, it was ok, lacked a bit of flavours, and salt too. The service was fast, we arrived for an early dinner so there was nobody in the dining room. The location is great, right on the seawall with a view of the marina and Granville island. I hope they make it, it is a huge space to fill everyday! I still prefer Panz or 3G for my greasy Asian food!
