Just OK - Edit

Unfortunately the menu was only in Chinese so I'm not sure what i may have missed out on but the waitress was able o translate "Eggplant" "tofu" and "wonton" so that's what i got. The food was ok - a little oily and bland.

Cons: Menu is only in Chinese

Largest Buddhist Temple in Taipa - Edit

This temple is well worth a visit as the largest temple in Taipa island, as well as one of the largest in Macau. It housed dormitories for the Sangha, as well as the largest bronze Buddha statue in Macau. The compound has many lovely plants and bonsai carefully cultivated by the few gardeners in the temple as well as the chef, who is always helping out with the plants when not in the kitchen. The serving staffs are volunteers who are Buddhists, lending a very warmth and uncommercial feel to the place. It is extremely tranquil and quiet, occasionally with chanting from the higher floors if there are ceremonies or dharma classes going on. The temple also possessed many beautiful religious artifects, paintings, wood cravings, calligraphy scrolls, etc.

Pros: non commercial atmosphere, largest bronze buddha in Macau, excellent food

Photogenic - in a 150+ year old temple - - Edit

Gorgeous temple - bring a camera, bring a camera, bring a camera - I forgot mine on both of my visits as I was in Macau primarily for business!

In my opinion Pou Tai Un is the loveliest temple on Taipa Island - dating back to the mid-1800's - with very fine painted wooden features & finely cast Buddha / Guan Yin statues.

......plus they have a very fine Buddhist veggy restaurant - often using locally grown fresh vegetables in the dishes - super relaxed atmosphere - everything was freshly prepared each time that I visited.

A memorable place.

One staff member was enthusiastic to tell us something of the history of the temple.

Local people visit / come & go continuously.

Some of the mock-meats probably contain whey powder - I stick to veggies & rice dishes
