The food was super tasty, cheap and tasted homemade 🥹 how did i not know about this place before, highly recommend. Most things are vegan if you remove egg.
We had the fried rice and sticky lemon chicken. Both 5/5

Great home-style Chinese vegetarian

Wonderful to have a pure vegetarian eatery in the Highlands and between Sydney and Canberra for a great meal/refreshment stopover.

I had a soy meat and veggie rice curry. Yummy and warming on a cold day. My friend had a tasty looking soy chicken and vegetable stir fry. Again looked very yummy. Totally recommend this place.

Honest little snack stop.

Visited October, 2013. A humble cafe, SOL Food may be small yet serves with a sweet spirit.. The menu reads "By maintaining a good heart each moment, everyday is a good day." During my visit, they also had the famous pro vegetarian quote by Einstein presented on the wall, in both English & Chinese. The food is mostly Asian style cuisine, rice paper rolls, sushi, dumplings.. some dishes contain a little bit of mock meat. They serve complimentary hot tea when you dine in & it's hard to beat on value with $7 for a plate of veg curry or a bowl of laksa. They seem to get a decent lunch crowd, it was a full house when I visited. (Though with four tables, a full house means 8 people!) It isn't the fanciest place to dine but it's a friendly lunch or take-away option for vegetarians in the area.

Pros: Vegetarian with a kind spirit., Complimentary hot tea., Cheap!

Cons: Some gentle music would be nice., Decor could use some jazzing up.
