Have noted that they serve shark fin soup!!! I'm hoping that it's soy based otherwise as a vegan will not support this restaurant : (

Good Restaurant - Edit

Quite a lot of vegan options, including faux meat. Menu does not label which items are vegan but the owner is very friendly and happy to assist.
I recommend their fresh juices.
Prices are towards the higher end compared to other Chinese places, but quality is pretty good.
Small downfall was that each time i have been we were the only customers, and staff have a habit of playing on their phones with annoying in-game music playing at full volume. Not so fitting for this higher-end restaurant.
But i would recommend a visit

Pros: Friendly Staff, Lots of vegan options, Fresh Juices

Cons: Not super cheap, Vegan options not labelled so have to ask , Location is not walking distance from centre

Good things (sometimes) do come to those who wait - Edit

NOTE: The review below describes the old location in 2011. I visited the new location a few times in 2015 and found food quality and atmosphere had gone down considerably. Generally ok, but not particularly special. New rating is 3 stars, not 4.

I never got speedy Hong Kong service in Kuching restaurants. But the meal here was definitely worth the long wait, as the quality matched the best I've had in Hong Kong. Had one of the recommended dishes (called Shanghai mixed vegetables), which exemplified the finest traits of Chinese cuisine: diversity in color, taste, and textures. Besides the standard veges, it included lotus roots, lotus seeds, and almond slivers - all delicately cooked, remaining crunchy though not raw. Also had a silky steamed tofu, served in a beautifully carved wooden platter (while waiting, saw a huge dim sum platter served on a model of a longboat!). It was such a feast that I almost felt obliged to contrive a justification. Yet it was not rich (i.e., high-fat), but light.

Not a budget eatery (two dishes, steamed rice, and drink came to RM32), nonetheless highly recommended.

- According to sign on door, hours were 9:30-2, 5:30-9:30, closed only Thursday. No reservation was required.

- On menu items, note the small symbols that indicate egg dishes, spicy dishes, and recommended dishes.

Pros: excellent food, low fat, light dishes, excellent dish presentation

Cons: not fast food, not orderly service

junya 26 Jun 2016 - This review describes a visit to the old location. I've subsequently visited the new location three times and found the food quality and atmosphere has gone down quite a bit. My rating for new place is 3 stars, not 4.

Nice food! - Edit

The best Japanese Bento that I ever had after being vegetarian. Mexico Sizzling place is also highly recommended.

Love their Teh C. which is basically tea with milk and ice. A bit high price (RM3) compared to normal shop, but very nice.

Good value, friendly owner and clean.
