Spacious and free wi-fi

Posted on 02 / 21 / 2014

Been there in Feb. 2014.

All items in the menu have English translation.
However, there is no information regarding use of dairy, eggs or honey.

Staff speaks very very little English (at least the staff that was there when I visited), so it was hard to order vegan food.
At the end, after I used a translator to say things like "I don't eat milk", or "I don't eat eggs", I was led to believe that they actually don't use dairy nor eggs in the food.
But I am not sure, so if someone speaks Chinese, it would be great to confirm.

Taste of food was good, and portions were not large, but they were more than enough even if you order just one meal.

There is a shop on the 1st floor, but it has very few things.

It's close to the "Master of the Nets Garden", so I would recommend to go there before/after your meal for a nice stroll.

Finally, when going there you can tell to the cab to take you to the Nanlin Hotel. It's very close.

Pros: spacious, free wi-fi, good value
Cons: not clear what is vegan

Vegetarian story

Posted on 02 / 12 / 2014

We discovered this restaurant through the Happycow's website and were really happy to find vegetarian restaurants here in china. Vegetarian Story Restaurant proposes a large choice of dishes, even more dishes on the chinese menu. All the plates are vegetarian. We tried the dumplings (home made, different tastes, 9 dumplings in one plate) delicious and the fried noodles - very tasty - the waitress is speaking english and can help you to make your choice. The prices are affordable and correct (30/40 yuans per dish) A good address.

Pros: English menu, English waitress, Large choice of plates

German malt beer meets Chinese dumplings

Posted on 01 / 15 / 2014

The restaurant is easy to find. Bus No 202 e.g. is just a few meters away.
The restaurant is on the 2nd floor. On the 1st floor is a tiny veggie-shop.
The menu card is in Chinese and English and the menu itself offers many different styles (Chinese, Japanese, western, mock meat, vegetables, spicy).
Some very special vegetables like Okra, or some kind of green roots are also on the menu (but as part of a dish).
The traditional Chinese soup with goji berries is very delicious.
I missed a menu for drinks. So to me it seems like this restaurant only offers black tea (hong cha) and German Karlsberger malt beer - weird, but not bad.
Thanks to the calm music the atmosphere is really nice.
Even though it's a vegetarian restaurant, it only had vegan dishes (at least I didn't see any dish having milk or egg).
In total some dishes don't taste very special, some are quite good. The prices are okay, not too expensive. The English menu has some mistakes but you can still understand what it says.
So it's a good and solid restaurant.

Pros: special vegetables
Cons: only black tea and malt beer
