Asian vegetarian cafe

We really had a fantastic meal. Large menu. Asian Thai Chinese. Vegetarian but everything can be made vegan. Had the vegan Peking duck for the first time. Outstanding! Very nice polite lady server. Nice atmosphere. Clean. Delicious. Hit the store where a nice lady sold us all kinds of stuffs like vegan snacks and teas and sweets. Definitely a cool place to visit. Near Kingston market. Highly recommended

Pros: Delicious , Everything can be made vegan , Nice atmosphere

Cons: Parking

Delicious food, s l o w service

We typically order delivery from here and the food is great! Today we decided to eat in…. Slow is an understatement. We asked for our tea three times - still never came. Service leaves a lot to be desired. But the food is worth it - I’d just suggest delivery 😆

Pros: Completely vegetarian , Food is delicious

Cons: Service is so slow

My favourite restauranf

I've been coming here for 15 years. It's my favourite restaurant of all time :)

Amazing, fried, sweet, salty, oily american chinese food, and almost all vegan.

I brought my four meat eating friends and thet loved it as well! One said he forgot it was vegan food.

I recommend:
Hot and sour soup
Pork buns
Enoki mushroom seaweed dish
Seitan platter

Pros: Mostly vegan, Amazing food, Very sweet staff

Cons: Not health food :)

A great option

The food was pretty good overall, we had a few plates to share so that we could taste more stuff. We also had some house made iced tea which was lovely. There was an issue with our waiter (an order we never received but were outright accused of having taken) which kind of made the whole experience a little less agreeable, but I would nonetheless go back.

Best Chinese food

The food was sooo good. Everything is vegan except a few items that contain egg or dairy which are clearly labeled (they should just make the switch to fully vegan at this point 😉). Their fake meat is really good.

They bring out the entrées to share so if you go with any other people, order a bunch of entrées to split.

Great food, nice staff, well labeled menu

There were minimal staff, so I don't know if they are able to handle things when busy, but they did well when we were there (there were only two other families). The food was really good. Everything is vegetarian. Most foods are vegan, and it specifies if foods contain dairy, eggs, and if spicy or very spicy. They also have a little shop with Asian vegan and veggie foods.

Decent for the price

It had a cute little shop inside, but it wasn't the best vegan asian food I've ever had

So Seitanerific

There are good vegan Chinese restaurants, and then there are great vegan Chinese restaurants. This is one of the latter. Their BBQ Seitan With Bokchoy is incredible - crispy outside, moist and tender inside. The sticky rice is so yummy. And there is so much other great stuff to explore on the menu.

One of my favourites in Toronto

Great food, with lots of delicious menu items. One of the restaurants I visit the most. Service is always quick (I'm usually there for lunch on weekend).

Menu is mostly vegan. Non-vegan menu items clearly marked (some contain egg or dairy).

I've been many times and have never been disappointed.

Pros: Good food, lots of choice, Quick service

Delicious dim sum!!

A bit pricey and greasy, but the dim sum is delicious!! You do have to watch out for eggs in some of the mock meats that they sell (they have a range available to take home and cook yourself). They have a wheelchairs accessible ramp and seating is comfortable. I took my omni friends here for lunch and they loved it!

Pros: Delicious vegan dim sum, Mock meats for sale

Cons: Some items are a bit greasy, Some items contain eggs

a few great hits, but also a couple misses

The most wonderful "bbq pork" steamed buns I have ever had. Will go back again for those again and again. I was not a huge fan of the dumplings or the seitan

The King is vegetarian!

Great Asiatic food. There are tons of options and it's a very good choice if you're​ into plant-based meats. 95% of the menu is vegan. Good value and excellent service.

Pros: lots of vegan options, staff, value
