I would really recommend the food its not too expensive and delicious!
It was a little hard to find, but worth it. We went at night, if you set out early and check it out in the day, it might not seem so daunting.
When you are near the zoo, walk along the river behind the building, then you find a big building with 2 big doors, go through the open one. We saw a green sign with the restaurants name on it, then went up to the 3rd floor. If you do go at night, clap in the corridor to turn the lights on, we didn't realise this and walked through a dark corridor to the outside, where you go down steps and see the building.
it was quite busy when we arrived as lots of families were having early new years get together there.
When we sat down a young girl started to talk to us, and introduced us to her parents and cousins, who were all vegan as well. We talked about being vegan in china. Also a couple said hello to us and a monk who was eating there too. The friendly atmosphere was lovely.
The lady who served us was spoke great english as when we ordered they didn't have an english picture menu, so we just told her what we fancied and she suggested a few dishes for us. We were a bit worried of the price ordering blind. We ordered a very spicy but delicious tofu dish, Pak Choi with mushroom and fake meat - amazing, some spring rolls and a soup, I warn you the soups are huge!
We also got a big bottle of orange juice and I picked up some bits from their shelf. It all came to 100 Yuan, we were expecting it to be a lot more!
They offer some bread goods such as; Peanut biscuits, rolls, filled buns, coconut pastries and bread.
100% vegan, tasty food, inexpensive
hard to find, menu, limited seating
