426, Jiuru 1st Rd, Kaohsiung, Taiwan

A large and upscale vegetarian buffet on the first floor of the Jen Dow International Hotel (the second floor has a vegetarian Chinese restaurant). Is part of a chain of 5-star vegetarian buffets and has locations in Taipei and Shanghai. Buffet consists of soups, faux meat entrees, vegetable entrees, dim sum, a sushi bar, a large dessert bar, a noodle bar, a salad bar, a juice bar, a chocolate fondue fountain, and an alcohol bar (which is pay only). Eggless options are marked in Chinese with a sign that says no egg but dairy free options are not marked so vegans please inquire. Reservations recommended for dinner. Previously named Jen Dow Vegetarian Buffet.

Awesome all you can eat buffet!! - Edit

Great vegan selection. The down side was the place is so busy we had to make reservation days in advance. However, we were able to buy food vouchers in Pingtung City (the only place that would sell it now) so you don’t have to pay full price which makes up for it. Will continue to back because it’s definitely worth the money!!

Pros: Large selection

Cons: Slow in table clearing, Ice cream is not vegan even though the staff advis

Excellent all around! - Edit

Beautiful atmosphere, large selection, and everything is very, very tasty! The fake meat was well made, the soups and juices were excellent, and the chocolate fondue on mochi was icing on the cake. I would love to go back and try it again, but the price definitely calls for a special occasion. That said, the service, the food, and the atmosphere were all wonderful!

Pros: Great Selection, Excellent Staff, Delicious Food

Cons: On the pricey side

JesseD 23 Dec 2014 - I just came across this review while looking for something else on the Kaohsiung page, and just want to say (for you, and anyone else who reads this) that the fake meat at Jen Dow (and most other restaurants in Taiwan) is certainly NOT vegan. It almost certainly contains dairy products, and quite likely egg as well (despite any assurances you may get from staff). For more info see my Taipei Jen Dow review.
