A big, popular, busy restaurant. A big menu with sections split into what you'd expect if you were instead in an omnivorous restaurant but every dish in there is 100 % vego. Dishes containing egg are marked so. There's some big tables that you are likely to find you share with others if this is where you are seated, something I personally liked as I ended up in conversation with people who I'd never met before.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Big choice menu

Food OK in general except too many mock meats

Have had dinner here twice. Decor is nice, food not bad in general, just too many mock meats. They do offer set dinners where you can pick your combination of select starters, soups, and main courses at a lower price; but I suggest ordering a la carte instead, you will have much better choices. Also, watch out for traces of eggs and dairy ingredients as they might not necessarily be marked. Once I ordered a fried rice, the menu didn't say anything about eggs and it came with tiny bits of scrambled eggs all over which was impossible to be picked out. Just confirm with the staff when ordering.

Pros: decor
Cons: too many mock meats, eggs or dairy might sneak in

Memorable dishes.......

......but take at least one LOCAL Cantonese speaker with you to help you to order as they have little concept of 'vegan' - milk is hidden in some of the sauces.

The chefs here are most excellent - creating highly inventive dishes.

Scaringly real mock meats - they even have life-like snails on the menu.

Don't stress if they get some of your order wrong - I have never had exactly what I ordered.

One of the waitresses really reminds me of Manuel / Andrew Sachs.

NOT fast food - some of the dishes can take 30 minutes to come to the table.

I love this place.

I am going to give it '5' because of the great food - for service the place maybe deserves '3'.
