Very friendly and accommodating but eating area a big letdown - Edit

This is a vegi Chinese buffet and the food was ok, standard starters- spring rolls, tempura veg, samosas - some were not hot enough though as food had been left out a while. You can pick your own veg stir fry for the main meal, which was cooked quickly and was very tasty. Desserts did not look appetising ( tired strawberries and fruit and dried nuts) Owners could not be more friendly BUT the eating area resembles an abandoned Chinese restaurant and just put me off eating, especially when my daughter saw a bug on the wall. Tired chairs covered in plastic to hide rips/wear and tear and floor/windows dusty and dirty- old dusty mini plants in pots adorn the walls too.if the owners had not been so sweet we would have left. Food was ok but not so good to make me visit again -sorry to the lovely owners, who could not have been more accommodating but the restaurant needs deep clean/revamp asap or it will not survive! ( a few people came in when we were there and walked straight out)

Pros: Pick your own stir fry ingredients, Friendly staff, No meat

Cons: Old and tired eating area, Akin to abandoned Chinese restaurant , Starters in buffer not kept hot enough

Rolled out of there stuffed. - Edit

When we arrived they said immediately that they only served vegetarian food. Which was ofcourse why we came. I asked if there was any thing non-vegan there and was shown a very small section making the place basically vegan.
It was an all you can buffet and we could choose what we wanted. I loved the fried vegetables and tofu. For the wok you can choose what you want from a garden of vegetables, put it on a plate and they cook it for you.
I could barely walk after eating so much and wasn’t hungry for the rest of the day. And for only 12,50€.
While I was choosing the vegetables for my wok a group of Englishmen arrived asking for a table. The lady did like with us, told them immediately it was vegetarian only. On in the group said she didn’t mind and a boy decided not to eat there so the group left. I wonder it they would have stayed and been amazed if they didn’t get the big “warning” in advance.

Pros: friendly staff, much food for less, amazing tempura

Cons: not open Mondays

Too bad we couldn't go again! - Edit

When we arrived at the restaurant a bit early, there were no other customers. But we thought let’s give it a try. We went inside and the owners were super friendly. The all you can eat buffet only costs 12.50 euros and was delicious. Snacks - salad- sushi - wok with fresh vegetables of your choice - fruit .... everything tasted delicious.
Unfortunately, the restaurant is not open at 6 o'clock so we could not eat here a second time before heading back to the airport.

Authentic Beijing taste.. Spring Rolls very Authentic - Edit

Simple, honest not flashy, or well presented but surprisingly good.

Excellent food, great host! - Edit

We saw this in Happy cow the other day so we went there for dinner. It was rather non-descript so I had my doubts in the beginning.

But the hostess looked so eager to serve us so we obliged. And we were so happy that we did!

The food was very good, fresh ingredients and cooked so well. We enjoyed the fresh spring rolls, the fried rolls, the noodles, the noodle soup - everything was superb.

The only thing we didn't like about the place was the white lights (makes the food look pale) but everything else was good.

Don't be put off by the looks. This is genuine, honest to goodness vegetarian food. We're coming back before we leave Nice!

Pros: Good value for money, Excellent hostess, Really delicious food

Cons: White lights - so unflattering to the food

A very pleasant surprise - Edit

We went here because it was the closest to our hotel. When we arrived the owner was so friendly telling us how the buffet works. Fist we started with appetizers of fried dimsum (which they cooked and served hot) and sushi. The sauce of soy sauce, ginger and sesame oil was delicious. The fresh spring rolls were so good I had 3! Then she asked us what kind of soup and noodles and vegetables for our soup which was served piping hot. Then we had stir fried vegetable noodles with our choice of vegetables and noodles again served freshly cooked! Then we had dessert from the dessert bar and she included ice cream cake from the kitchen! Love this place. I hope more vegetarians will come here. We will be back!

Pros: Friendly owner, great food!

Cons: Family owned kind of restaurant so not so elegant
