Formosa Disgust - Edit

I took some friends here because I wanted to try it and I ended up being embarrassed. While the berry and taro smoothies were quite nice, they ended up being the highlight of our meal. I tried two vegan noodle soups: one lacked flavour and the other was viscous and actually tasted bitter and disgusting. The dumplings were doughy and the Tofu Delight was bland. The only half decent dish was the chive crepe, which was nice and crisp. While there were a lot of dishes on the menu, I would not come back in a hurry.

Pros: Nice smoothies, Nice crisp crepes

Cons: Doughy dumplings, Soups either tasteless or disgusting , Bland tofu dish

Lovely food, lovely staff! - Edit

Yes, they do have meat options here, but they seem to shine with their vegetarian food. I believe a lot of the produce is locally grown from the owners garden which is wonderful. I've been here many times now and I always feel refreshed and happy afterward because it's so healthy! Being a university student, the location is brilliant.

Pros: Wide range of vegan/vegetarian options, Light, fresh, locally grown, Kind and helpful staff

Kale dumpling - Edit

Was so excited to be in Dunedin on a week day when this place was open. It is a mix meat and vege restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere. Nice staff aware of eastern vegetarian food. Kale dumplings contain no onion or garlic and they were able to make a small dish of mapo tofu for me with a side of cabbage and veges. The dumplings were peppery and the tofu was not the traditional chilli but rather ginger flavour. I paid around $27 for it.

Pros: sml selection w/o onion garlic, pleasant atmosphere, nice staff

Cons: not many vegetarian dishes, garlic & onion in some things

Wonderful cuisine and drinks - Edit

I love Formosa, they focus on using natural foods and cater for vegetarian and vegans too! This is the only place in dunedin that has Bubble tea (tapioca pearl tea) with purely natural flavours from the tea you choose.

My all time favourite meal is the gingery mushroom soup on rice (vegan and gluten free)

Pros: lovely staff, fresh food, fast

Cons: more vegan options please

I like this place - Edit

The food here is all pretty good, and the people who run it are lovely and friendly and seem to genuinely care about the food they make. My partner doesn't like this place much anymore because he got sick of how 'all the food tastes exactly the same' - I still maintain that this is his fault for covering everything he orders in soy sauce and chili!

Pros: Friendly staff and atmosphere, Nice food, Bubble tea

Close to University - Edit

The food is good, and the proprietors, who grow their own vegetables, are very careful about ensuring that their vegan dishes are truly vegan. Definitely give this place a try.

Pros: Expanding vegetarian menu

Fresh tasting food - friendly staff - Edit

I think the best thing about this place is that they grow many of their own veggies - and it shows in the finished dishes. The food has a lovely fresh quality to it. Unlike many other places, their dumplings don't taste like they've come straight out of the freezer. Good food. Not a ton of vegan options, but more than most restaurants in dunedin, and the veggie/vegan options are clearly labelled. Well worth a visit!

Pros: vegan options on menu, fresh food, friendly staff
