Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pure Lotus
by stegh

Review: As others have mentioned, the decor of this restaurant is very serene and pleasant, and the menu is extensive with many veg options (though NOT VEGAN- be sure to ask about eggs in many dishes). However, we heard from a local business owner that the owner of Pure Lotus is Not Vegetarian and thinks that vegetarians are foolish-- he is only doing this for business. We travel a lot and make sure to always go to the vegetarian restaurant (even if there are veg options at other restaurants) so as to encourage and support vegetarian businesses, but this story about the owner left a bad taste in my mouth. If you're in Yangshuo, take a cab to the Outside Inn (about 5KM out of town) where the managers ARE vegetarian (and raising vegetarian kids) and the food delicious.

I live in this area, have been vegetarian 15 years now and eat at Pure Lotus quite a lot, I also know the owner and I think your comments are firstly, completely false, second you based it on hearsay ... and thus pretty unfair really. You should be more careful about personal character assassinations of people you have never met! I love the food and the atmosphere ... and I will will keep on eating there .. especially for the Vegetarian Balls served with Broccoli - my fave dish!

I agree with Mango, I think this is a very unfair review. I live in the area and have eaten here many times and had nothing but great food, service and the owner is a genuine person who would not call anyone foolish. I respect your morals of supporting vegetarian eating, but making harsh comments about someone you have not met is extremely unfair.
