Amazing vegan menu

The mee goreng was so tasty. Great that you can pick veg, tofu or seitan. Most of the menu can be made vegan. Really good find in kinsale.

Really good!

Take-out / bistro that serves a variety of vegan dishes. The samosas (#1) were a good starter and the udon noodles with black bean sauce (#14) with seitan were fantastic!

Tasty take out

Got tasty take away vegan seitan
noodle dishes here for Saturday night supper, was pretty tasty. Vegan items clearly marked on the menu. (Was a rainy day in Kinsale and they don't have inside seating unfortunately.)

Be specific!

Between this location and the one in the city, this is a favorite place to eat.
However, do be very specific when ordering.
I’ve noticed that despite having the Vegan symbol on dishes it can contain eggs. You need to stress it’s vegan when ordering and they will accommodate.
Do not leave it to chance!

In the city branch they sprinkled dairy cheese over an order of mine, so speak up!

Tasty Asian food

I had seen this place on happy cow, but wasn't sure if it was still around as there has been no reviews in the last 2 years. I'm glad to say they're still open and still have many vegan options. Downside now is that they are takeout only (perhaps because of COVID?) It's a little hidden in the square where it's located but well worth a visit. Great to have so many vegan options, and even vegan desserts (although we didn't try them this time). It was nice to have a choice between tofu and seitan for a change.

Such a lucky find!

Found this restaurant after looking for a bit on an early Sunday evening. My friend and I both went for the Pad Thai - her’s was vegetarian, mine vegan - and I was so happy to see them be able to vegan-ize so many of their dishes! Was an amazing meal on an idyllic, rainy day :)

OMG Good!

This place was amazing. There were vegan dishes a-plenty, and each one was delicious. The flavors were bold and perfectly proportioned. I loved the gyozas and the spring rolls, as well as the pineapple fried rice and the Malaysian noodles, but it was the rendang that really took the cake. Mmmmmm it was so good!

We were thrilled to find this wonderful restaurant that had vegetarian options for myself and meat options for my husband and son. The staff was lovely and the food was fast, fresh and delicious. We loved it.

Pros: Tofu and Tempeh, Many options , Well priced
