Respond to Review of CLOSED: Eden Delicacy

Review: My wife and I ate here recently and enjoyed it very much. Perth doesn't offer up much for the Vegan diet so it felt good to eat somewhere that assured you weren't eating any animal products - or were we? Although you don't see them, Asian foods usually almost all contain animal products, even veggie soup is made with Chicken stock. Fish Sauce, Oyster Sauce, Shrimp paste - these products are used extensively and essentially are Vegetarian, but not Vegan. The only way to know they are not being used is to trust the proprieter is not trying to slip one by you. Having informed the lovely lady we were Vegan I wholeheartedly trusted my food would be as well, and I enjoyed my Laksa soup a great deal, I even liked the tofu feaux-meats that came in it and the yellow noodles that had "no egg". However, I was informed by the same lady that a "Five Spice Roll" I bought and consumed was Vegan, then when I purchased some of the product (from the freezer in the corner) I read that it contained Whey Protein. NOT Vegan. So how do I trust anything else I'm told? This could be a simple error, a misunderstanding of what "whey protein" really is, I don't know but it has affected my level of trust now that I am unlikely to return. If you're Vegetarian, this place has some awesomely delicious food. If you're vegan, it's up to you to decide...
