New menu

Posted on 02 / 18 / 2015

I came here for the first time about eight months ago, and loved everything about it then. On returning this time, the menu had changed to what it was calling a 'monthly special menu' (I was eating here on Chinese New Year's Eve), but the food and the experience was equally delightful.

Perhaps to accommodate for the festivities, the restaurant had essentially tripled the number of tables for this visit, adding more in a possibly impromptu outside seating area, than there was inside the restaurant (there were no seats outside on my previous visits). Despite this, there was more than enough staff, some of whom spoke English, but all of whom were very friendly and attentive.

The speed of service wasn't hindered by the extra tables either, as the delicious food came out of the kitchen very quickly.

The menu contains both English and Chinese, as well as accurate pictures, so ordering is no problem, and the food is superb.

There's a lot of mock meats, which personally I quite like. I know that others prefer whole vegetable meals though. And for people who are so inclined, this menu is not completely redundant, but you might not find the choice too plentiful.

The beautiful decor and the dress of the staff indicates that this is certainly not a low-end restaurant. And the prices reflect that, as dining solo I paid ¥83 for a soup (¥21), dumplings (¥20) and a main dish (¥38; I assume that the other ¥4 was some kind of service charge). It was worth the money though, I really enjoyed it.

The menu has changed since I was here eight months ago, but the quality has not. This is a great restaurant.

Great classic Chinese veg restaurant

Posted on 07 / 06 / 2014

Full-size, real sit-down vegetarian restaurant, popular and crowded, yet comfortable. All of the other reviews are spot on: the restaurant is a little hard to find, the staff speaks just enough English, prices are reasonable, food is excellent and well-portioned. Definitely worth the trip. Let me add that the staff was friendly, and you get a strong sense of the restaurant and food being very authentic, based on the popularity with locals and their apparent enthusiasm.

Pros: Great food, Reasonable prices, Popular
Cons: Hard to find, Somewhat rundown, Little English

Best Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant in Guangzhou

Posted on 04 / 30 / 2014

I love this place. Finally Vege eatery with English speaking staff. Food is Awesome, cheap food. friendly staff. The best Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant in Guangzhou. Hard to find, but worth the trip.

Following is Direction from the Metro (Chen Clan Academy, Exit "D"): Walk straight for 50 metres til you see a small drive/avenue to the right, keep following the avenue, the avenue goes for like 100 metres then turn left and goes for another 100 metres and it will finally join up with massive main road, cross the road, when get to the other side, you see another mini avenue (Fu're rd). walk into the avenue till you see the restaurant (50 metres inside the avenue).

Trip is Totally worth it. Again the Best Vege eatery in the whole city.

Delicious food, didn't like the interior so much

Posted on 07 / 23 / 2013

The food is great! I specially enjoyed the sweet potato, broccoli and cauliflower in a curry-ginger sauce very much, but all the other dishes were delicious as well.

Generous servings, reasonable prices.

We didn't like the design of the restaurant so much though - a little run down and dirty, just like the usual chinese restaurant. Could use some renovation to make the place look more pleasent to the eye.

Pros: everything tasted really good, good service, friendly people
Cons: run down, not easy to find

Basic Chinese vegetarian restaurant

Posted on 01 / 07 / 2013

Stayed at a hotel close by, so I ended up visiting five times during one week. Basic Chinese vegetarian restaurant, with lots of dishes to chose between. It's a big place, but gets packed quite often. Shouldn't have to wait for a table though. Cheap.

Pros: Extensive menu, Beer, Friendly staff
Cons: Their afternoon break, Not all dishes are all that exciting

Great place

Posted on 04 / 29 / 2010

Has fabulous food - even served us beer (odd, since it's a Buddhist restaurant). Have eaten there 4 times - perfect every time. Staff speaks just enough English. Be sure to take a print out of the address in Chinese so you can ask everybody in sight where it is because it's down a little alley and you'll never find it otherwise. Nice little vegetable market in that alley as well. Has menu in English with photos!! Meal for 2 = 100RMB (with 4-5 drinks!). Going back again tonight. Bonus: it's in a very safe and lively part of Guangzhou with lots and lots of adorable little shops and bakeries. 5 stars!

Pros: price, taste, service
Cons: not located in my hometown
