great food, pleasant atmosphere

Be sure to ask for the vegetarian menu, which is extensive. We enjoyed the assorted vegetarian appetizers. The avocado soup was delicious. The java tofu is phenomenal. We appreciate that they use much less salt in their food than most restaurants (although some may find the mock chicken a bit salty). Most entrees ranged from $9 to $12 on the dinner menu. Portions were generous, so we had a meal for the next day as well.

Pros: helpful service, great food, pleasant atmosphere
Cons: we live too far away!

How Friendly is Veg Friendly

They may be veg friendly, but they served me beef! How friendly is that? They are obviously confused about veg and non-veg in their kitchen, but who wants food that may have peen prepared using meat utensils.

Pros: Clean, Good Location, Parking
Cons: Serve Meat

Great Deal

Merlion provides one of the best lunch deals in Gainesville. You can order basically anything you want from the menu and it comes with soup, salad, spring rolls and a wanton all for around 6 dollars. This is all done in one of the most elegant settings in town. (don't be fooled by the outside). The service is always top notch and the food is consistently good. Also if you just want to hang out for a while they offer tea time boxes that come with a pot of tea and mini sweets. I usually get one of the curry selections because they are full of flavor without being too spicy. My only complaint is that the dinner prices are a lot higher but the portions remain similarly sized. Im listing a link to their menu below

Pros: Atmosphere, Bento Boxes, Tea
