Not the cheapest as you need a few dishes to share, but it’s all delicious. All the vegetable dishes (that don’t mention fish) are vegan. The famous tea salad definitely lives up to the hype.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Delicious food

Cons: Menu doesn’t say vegan - so I checked with waiter, On the pricier side

Trying something new

Three of us had dinner here & the food was really nice. It was a new cuisine to all of us so some of the flavour combinations were a bit different to what we are used to. Once I had ordered our 4 veg dishes the waiter checked what our dietary requirements were to ensure it was cooked accordingly. The service was great & they continued to bring us jugs of water even after we had well & truly finished our meal & were just chatting.

Pros: Variety of veg dishes

Cons: Just make sure you read the full description

Tasty but dainty

We came here for dinner. Vegan dishes were not marked but we were advised that salad and vegetable dishes were, or could be made vegan. Four of us ordered about six dishes from the tapas-style menu (less than the recommended two per person), from a lentil salad to a split pea tofu dish to vegetable dishes such as roasted mushrooms and grilled eggplant. All were delicious but portions were not huge, particularly the dainty tea salad, which, while tasty, was priced at $14.50 for about a cupful. Very nice food and the sharing of dishes added to the social experience. Bill added up to less than $25 per person.

Pros: Delicious food

Cons: Portion size not huge (though intended tapas-style

flavours you have never tasted before

My absolute favourites are the tea salad and the eggplant salad. Just tell them that you are vegan and they change the fishsauce to soysauce. All the dishes are gluten free (vege/ vegan dishes). Great experience about new flavours.

Pros: friendly staff, about 10 vege/ vegan dishes, great
