This place is just next to Guangxiaosi, on a small side road, but nice, clean, and tasty for the price. You can get a set meal from 10:30h to 13:00h for just 6RMB everyday except Saturday and Sunday. Price: Moderate more-less

Just got back from dinner here, and it was superb. So delicious. Amazing dishes, with fantastic flavours. The portion sizes are large - be prepared for that. Get the sesame wheat gluten, the broccoli and "meat" dish, the mushroom hot plate and the hot peppers - they were all excellent.
Right next to the temple, which means there are often several robed monks eating in the restaurant with you.

Pros: vegan, Buddhist , monks

I enjoyed eating here. Especially seitan and fried rice was good. Service was a little uninspired but the ambiance of the restaurant as well as the food seems decent. It's also affordable. Don't be alarmed by the shabby little side street leading up to the restaurant, the restaurant itself is pleasant enough.

I couldn't see any non-vegan menu items but they might use dairy like other Buddhist places, so vegans beware.

Pros: good value for money
Cons: service isn't great

Delicious food and many options

This restaurant is located down a small alley way to the right of the temple. There is a large 'vegetarian food' sign that you can see from the road side looking down the alley.

It is very busy at lunch time, we were lucky to get a seat!
The menu has pictures and some english which makes it easy to order as you can just point to what you want.

The food was fresh and hot and delicious! There is a lot to choose from on the menu including various vegetable dishes, gluten and tofu dishes as well as delicious dumplings!

Will definitely return on our next visit to Guangzhou :)

Pros: Wide range, Plenty of seating, Good value
Cons: Staff don't speak any English

Pros: Good Taste, Various Dishes, Fair price
Cons: a bit hidden
