Not a vegan restaurant, just vegan friendly.

Posted on 10 / 17 / 2011

Visited Elaine's last week. The restaurant is situated beside a small lake, with nice view, though a bit out of the way. The price is a bit more expensive than the usual vegetarian restaurant but the food portion is big which justify the dearer price. The waitress is keen in giving advice but faces shortage of manpower when the weekend lunch time crowd arrives. However, we found cheese and dairy products used in several dishes. Vegan beware! They can only be consider as a vegan friendly restaurant.

Pros: nice surrounding, non-smoking area available
Cons: slow

Wonderful lakeside restaurant in Shunyi

The restaurant is quite far from the city centre, but if you find yourself in Shunyi, then you must stop by Elaine's. The food is delicious, my kids love the sausages and sizzling black pepper steaks. The spicy chicken and flaming tofu are delicious. The staff are attentive and the owner, Elaine, is very friendly and speaks English. It is a beautiful setting, in a courtyard with a nicely decorated garden, views of the lake and an outdoor trampoline plus an indoor playroom for kids. It has become our family's favourite restaurant.

Pros: Excellent food, Beautiful setting, Friendly staff
Cons: Far from downtown
