You need to get here early for the buffet! It's got a decent selection of dishes and comes with rice and soup and is a bargain! Main menu has great selection of dishes, ask which are vegan as it can be hard to tell. Also squat toilets here only folks!

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Uses egg

Best vegetarian buffet

From Monday to Friday at 12pm the restaurant has a vegetarian buffet with vegan options. Very delicious and cheap. Just 2$ for a big plate full of food. Incredibly cheap and tasty!

Pros: Maybe one of the cheapest buffet in the world.

Good food, nice atmosphere

We have eaten there 2-3 times in November 2018. The food is great with interesting menu items. Friendly, young staff and educated guests. We will go again. Call before to make sure it is open.

Pros: Wonderful vegetarian food

Cons: Not always open at night.

Cheap food, okay quality

Great option in this location of town for a wide variety of Asian dishes which are mostly all vegetarian (I think they have some fish dishes on the menu). Most things are vegan (some other things have eggs).

Pros: Cheap (entree is usually around 1.50-3.00 USD

Cons: Not necessarily "healthy" food

Come for the buffet

Cheap buffet but make sure you get here at 11.30am as the good stuff goes fast! Fast free WiFi (10mb+/10mb+) until the restaurant gets busy, after then the access point struggles.

Pros: Cheap food, tasty iced americano, roasted mushroom

Cons: A little bit of a language barrier, Buffet only filled once

Misleading menu

Being a vegan living in PP I thought I'd try this place. Menu looked ok, so ordered a noodle dish. Pic showed a bowl with carrots, corn, noodles and other veg, looked tasty. What I actually got was cabbage only in a warm broth with half cooked noodles. When I told them that menu pic was misleading, he just smiled and said he would fix it but I didn't bother. Not up to Evergreens (St 130) standards. Disappointed.

Pros: Cheap, friendly

Cons: misleading menu, bland food

Happy Time at Lunar Cafe

Easy to find on 430 street this cafe offer you a variety of tasty food: rise, noodle and mock meat made out of seitan very tasteful and delicate. The manager is gentle and friendly. Me with my wife had rice with seitan (on menu you read mock pork) noodle, and hot tea and got happy and bill only 2 and half dollars!

Cons: healthy cuisine, friendly staff
