Respond to Review of Graceful Vegetarian
Review: It's worth the trip to go here if you live in Toronto and are used to only downtown eateries. This was the first vegetarian restaurant I felt comfortable bringing my family to after I changed my diet and remains one of my favorites for special occasions. The lemon "chicken" is the best I've ever had, even real chicken, the sauce is wonderfully tart and the mock meat very tasty. The hot pot is perfect in cold weather and I especially enjoyed having mock-fish, as a shellfish allergy has prevented me from eating them for 10 years. All the dishes I have had have ranged from good (mock duck skin) to fantastic ( ginger "beef", mixed mushrooms with noodles..) The room is spacious, beautiful and perfect for a romantic dinner and even more so for a family meal. The staff is very understanding and attentive, something I find lacking sometimes in other Chinese restaurants. The food is not cheap but you can taste the quality. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, especially for the atmosphere.
