Cold place

Posted on 11 / 16 / 2013

This place is at least 10-15 minutes walk from the subway XiZhiMen. It's placed in a courtyard.
The atmospehre is not very cosy and in winter it's quite cold inside.
We ordered several kinds of bamboo, which were all delicious. But the menu is not too different from other vegan or vegetarian restaurants. Some mock meat dishes tasted real, even though their look and texture didn't - scary...

Cons: cold atmosphere

big restaurant, good food and service

The restaurant was big, two floors, the food is good -- a lot of variety to introduce to non-veg friends! Also the service is very friendly, we ordered a vegan cake which is to be delivered there, and the restaurant offered to pay for it until we get there, which was really nice of them. Buddhist environment, more grown-ups go there than younger people.

Pros: good service, big space, lots of food variety
Cons: food may be a little oily

I arrived at 12:00. The restaurant was half-full. Kind of noisy due to several kids there.
The food was oily, but the taste was still good. You have to wait some time for the dishes to be served. RMB 50 per person and I was really full.
