Since (unfortunatly) the Supreme Garden restaurant has been closed down, this is the best vegetarian rastaurant in Sandakan now. It is also one of the few which opens for dinner (6.00 pm - 8.30 pm). As the owners don't hire a lot of staff, as is usual in Malaysia, one might have to wait a bit longer, but it's worth it. The food simply is of a higher standard than the average Chinese Vegetarian. Service is also friendly. The place is on the first floor, so watch out for their sign, pointing to the stairs.
The restaurant is at Bandar Indah, the new shopping area on the way to the airport. Sandakan city centre can be quite deserted at night. And according to the locals not that save. Bandar Indah has taken over as a popular place in the evening. Recommended!
Cons: not in the city centre
