Juste correct, sans plus... - Edit

Le détour n'en valait pas la peine! Non conseillé. Rapport qualité/prix faible. Les portions sont petites. J'ai eu un remplissage de thé glacé sans l'avoir même demandé. J'ai eu la facturation en double. Bref, ce n'était pas un cadeau. Les serveuses parlaient ensemble pour ensuite me regarder et rire. Bravo pour le respect!

Pros: Service rapide (mais inexact)

Cons: L'attitude des serveuses, Personnel unilingue vietnamien , Portion petite pour le prix

Amazing - Edit

A total treat for your taste buds. A lovely place with very friendly staff and AMAZING food. The range of dishes was great - all sorts of different things to satisfy every vegetarian and almost all fussy vegans, too (ie. me). Phenomenally tasty mushrooms and loved the chance to get non-fried veg, too. A great place in a great venue. Would highly recommend.

Pros: Delicious, Great menu, Friendly staff

Cons: Not vegan, Not vegan, Not vegan

Excellent Food, Options, Environment and Staff - Edit

I absolutely enjoyed my late lunch at Buddha Chay. The staff were friendly and helpful, the café is beautiful and comfortable. The menu had a wide and wonderful selection and the food was absolutely delicious. A French diner next to me works in the neighborhood and eats there often. He said anything on the menu is delicious. He was right by me.

Pros: Delicious Food and Many Choices, Helpful and Friendly Staff, Very Nice Environment and all For a Great Cause

Eat vegan food for good cause - Edit

I read the story behind this restaurant - set up by a famous singer of Vietnam - who stayed single / unmarried for the rest of her life just to bring up 18 adopted orphans. This business is another source of her income. The food quality can be judged by different tongues but I like it a lot. Brought my non-vegan friends and they were all impressed. Maybe the other guests who commented before me was not having luck on that day :)

Pros: Beautiful cause, Friendly staff

Not worth it - Edit

Well it sure wasn't what I expected. First of all, it's not actually vegan, if I recall. I think there are some instances of dairy and eggs on the menu, so make sure with your waiter or waitress.

Second, it's definitely not a budget place, as it's listed on Happy Cow. Probably about 80k/main.

And third, the food wasn't all that good. I had a jackfruit hotpot. Not a large portion. It was okay, but not very flavorful, and so salty I couldn't taste anything else. Had to pay extra for rice to go with it too. Even the napkins cost money!

I had jackfruit at Ah Di Da Phat, in the neighborhood that night. Twice as good and half the price, for more food. So what are you paying so much for here? Air conditioning, a security guard to open the door for you, and full-color printed spoon protectors. I was not impressed.

Pros: good variety

Cons: overpriced, mediocre food, pay extra for everything
