Arrive no later then 11:30am. Go in to the right and down past the reception and dining hall to the garden portal and to left there is a small room with chopsticks out front and bowls inside, take a couple of bowls and chopsticks and go back to the dining hall and take a seat left or right but not in the 1st 2 rows of either side(reserved for the nuns). At 11:40am the fish gong out front is stuck and then chimes signal mealtime. Then a few words and Hymns and as food being brought around and served, 8 or so dishes so careful not to take too much. Cost 5RMB. All vegan food with beans, greens, soup, veggies, and rolls with rice. Place money in front of you and staff will collect. By 11:55am service is finished. Leave by the side exits. Location is 4 blocks east of Wenshu Metro. more-less

I Love this place, the food and the Atmosphere. If life didn't get in the way I would come daily for lunch, the only meal served to the public. The food is totally Vegan, healthy, wholesome, balanced, varied, very tasty and cheaper than what it would cost to make the food at home, 5 RMB (80 cents). Right from the striking of the Fish Gong and Chimes out front at just before 11:40 through the non talking meal to the cleaning and replacing of the bowls and chopsticks one used this was a delightful meal and experience. It is a shame more people don't know of this "Temple" as I find it more Artistic then the more crowded Wenshu Monastery 2 1/2 blocks away. Then again, maybe it is much better this way. Do yourself a favor and get here by 11:30 to have lunch and then enjoy the walk through the Wenshu area to the Monastery

Pros: Location in Wenshu Monastery area, Vegan, healthy, tasty food, Very inexpensive
