Quick service, tasty vegan chinese food, inexpensive. Recently changed owners so they don't have a permit yet to service alcohol but should soon. Get the general tao tofu...great sweet & sour sauce.

Best Cantonese in Town

Despite not being 100% vegetarian, this is one of my favourite restaurants in town and often the place I take people. It is really great cantonese food for vegans and meat-eaters (so I am told) alike.

Make sure you mention no-egg when you order as some dishes come with it by default. Also some, like the absolutely delicious hot-and-sour soup have a meat (pork) and vegetarian (tofu) option that you need to specify.

Highlights: hot and sour soup, veggie spring roll, salt and pepper tofu, general tau tofu, the eggplant dish (and I don't normally like eggplant - it is really amazing). The japanese-style tofu is apparently out of this world but has egg in it.

There are a number of veggie dishes on there that, unfortunately, have almost identical english translations. Like "Chinese vegetables", "fried green vegetables", etc. My favourite one is "Braised Assorted Vegetables" which comes with bok choy, tofu, bean curd sheet, and more! Also, if you ask nicely, you can get a vegetarian hot-pot where they bring out the big burner for your table full of water with noodles, pea leaves, and tofu on the side which you cook yourself at the table. Be sure to say you are vegetarian as the normal broth is meat-based (but they have a veggie one or you can just get water).

The portions at this place are big. One veggie dish is definitely enough for two. The soup as well (though you can get a small version if you ask for it).

The waiters are all very friendly. One quirky note, there is one female server who is very friendly but also tries to "help" us western vegetarians but switching the order for what she thinks we will like. The food that comes is always fine, but if she is your server, be very clear and make sure she doesn't bring you plain veggies and tofu (which is also good).

This place is always busy. If you are coming at supper-time on friday or something, call ahead and make reservations. You can still get a table if you are willing to wait 20-30 minutes even during the busiest times.

Also, this is on the second floor, not wheelchair accessible.

Pros: Delicious, Big portions, friendly staff
