Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pure Lotus - Holiday Inn
by earthville

Review: Unsurpassed vegan Chinese fare, and possibly the world's longest, heaviest menu... Quite pricey by any city's standards, but well worth the splurge for the food and the experience. Essentially all vegan except for some of the drinks, apparently. The "Peking Duck" is fantastic. The "Happiness Rolls" are also surprisingly great (and affordable) starters. The Vajrisatva fish was typical (good but not special). Great teas too (though some of the prices are astronomical). We liked the Changhongqiao location (the other one) much, much better than this location. YMMV, but we found the Lido location to be rather Disneylandish, loud, and cheesy, whereas the Changhongqiao location is more subdued and, for our tastes, more pleasant. BTW, the wait staff here are most certainly not "monks" by any measure, though they wouldn't be out of place at Burning Man. ;-)
