It took a while to get to from the centre, but was worth a bit of a trek at least once. Lovely decor, inviting buffet. Slightly stressy staff, which was ironic given the omnipresent Buddhist theme! A bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride, as the buffet was at first glance promising; then it was revealed that none of the more exciting-looking options were vegan; then it turned out the simple-looking salads and seasoned hot vegetables were bursting with exceptional flavour and left one filling well-fed after just one smallish plate. I didn't think any of the desserts (a large selection of tarts and cakes) would be vegan, but one was, and my oh my. That apple tart was something else. Desserts were strictly restricted to one per person, otherwise I would have taken one or two portions with me for breakfast! I found the atmosphere overall not terribly relaxing, perhaps the staff were having a bad day, and the fact I was sitting on my own in a high traffic area (watching people bump into the spiral staircase) probably didn't help. But I went there looking for food I could eat that would make me feel satisfied, and I found it.Pros: Delicious, flavoursome, healthy food, Reasonable price, Very pleasant decor and soothing music
Cons: Far from the centre, Stressy staff (that night), Ovo-lacto options envy!
