Even better the second time around - Edit

Such an amazing spot. The man that runs the downstairs was very attentive even when he was busy and having to turn people away when they were full.

This place was so great we went 2 days in a row while visiting St. John's and loved the soy chicken wings and tofu fish with king oysters mushrooms.

Pros: my tea cup was never empty!

Cons: busy around supper time on Saturday night but wor

Delicious food, cozy place, amazing service - Edit

What a cute and cozy place this is. The food was all vegan, and the service was amazing. For a small mom and pop operation, it was running like a well-oiled machine. We will definitely be returning.

All vegan but lots of fake meats - Edit

Friendly Husband and wife team show lovely hospitality with free samples of soup and tea. Vegetables are fresh with copious amounts. But almost every meal is loaded with fake chicken, pork or fish. This is not the modern 'man made meats' found in big cities, but the old-style TVP/MSG type which can give some people a rash (like me). If that's you, either ask for vegetables only with tofu (they are happy to do this), and beware of the appetisers which have hidden fake 'ham' which I only saw after I'd eaten enough of it to have a reaction. This is old-style processed vegan, not modern whole foods vegan, so order carefully if you are like me and want fresh whole foods.

Pros: low prices, old-fashioned hospitality, low salt in

Cons: heaps of fake meat

Delicious food, would definitely visit again! - Edit

This restaurant is totally vegan and a haven for vegans visiting St. John's. The owner is also the primary service staff and really hustles to make sure your food comes out promptly. I got the "duck and pork with rice", made with seitan. It was unbelievably good. I also had a steamed bun, also good. Their homemade sauces are truly out of this world! I would come back to eat here in a heartbeat!

Pros: Many interesting options - e.g. faux pork and duck

Cons: Small, no "ambiance"

great little spot - Edit

The food and service were fantastic. I was very impressed with the variety and was surprised to see some dishes I had never seen before. Granted my experience isn't global, but still. I can highly recommend this place. I will be sure to come back the next time I am in the area.

Pros: great taste, great variety, great service

Excellent food and amazing service! - Edit

This restaurant is definitely worth a try in St John's. Not far from the city center, you can have very good Chinese food here. Everything is vegan except maybe honey in some dishes (I saw that in the menu even if the owner told me everything was vegan). It is recommended to book a table on evening because the place is not huge. In terms of food, you have the choice between numerous dishes, most of them with faux-meat. I had a BBQ pork with rice and tofu. It was very good and portions are big. Prices are very fair considering food quantity.

The owner is so friendly and makes you feel very comfortable. When I waited for my dish to take away, the owner brought me some tea and candies. Service is great here!

A must-try in St John's.

Pros: good food, inexpensive, very good service, friendly staff

Cons: small, some dishes may contain honey?

Comfortable, delicious and warm welcome! - Edit

I stumbled across TPL with my sister while visiting home for the holidays, and I'm so glad we went inside!
We were greeted by the sweetest server, an older gentleman who kept us full of tea and snacks while we waited for our expansive takeout order (I couldn't decide, heehee).
My sister has a white-flour allergy, so she was thrilled to see and try the gluten-free items on the menu, and kept raving about them!
I had a curry with 'fish,' some rice rolls, and a few other things that were devoured!
I live in East Asia, so it was awesome to try some delicious vegan Asian food that wasn't too oily or spicy! I plan taking some friends here next time I'm home! :)

Pros: Friendly, courteous staff, Delicious mains, Gluten-free options

Cons: Only one cook so it took a little long to get our

amazing homemade sauces - Edit

great curry buns, lemon mock duck & bbq pork and deep fried mushroom dishes complimented by their amazing in house sauces - curry ginger, sweet bbq and a hot sauce

the menu is rounded out by TVP, gluten and tofu based mock meat, vegetable, noodle and rice dishes in Chinese, Cantonese and Japanese styles.

it was very busy on a Friday with the husband & wife team overworked with a full house (only 20-odd seats) and takeout orders. the server and co-owner Paulo was very very apologetic starting us with a great tomato soup, keeping our cups full of hot tea and bringing out orange slices while waiting for our main course.

reasonably priced, typical Asian/Buddhist mock meat fare.

Pros: Amazing homemade sauces, friendly service

Cons: small/busy during peak hours

Excellent! - Edit

The food is excellent and not pricey. We tried the buns and the singapore noodles, all were very tasty! If you are vegan, vegetarian or just want to try something different, I recommend this place :).
