So many vegetarian and mock meat dishes!

Service was good and the food was super tasty. Bring a jacket because it can get a bit cold

Wonderful Vegetarian (mostly vegan) open in evening too

Beautiful and very large restaurant with extensive menu, mostly vegan, many types of vegetarian meats and amazing local vegetables and mushrooms. Typical to Macau, dishes from all over China and Southeast Asia were represented.

Wonderful attending service, in spite of us arriving very shortly before closing they patiently served us, answering our questions and refilling our tea pot.

Reasonable prices (but not cheap) for the quality. Good place for large groups. Tables for upto twelve.

Food very tasty, hot spice and salt was thankfully offered on the side. Only felt a bit overuse of a soya-starch brown gravy which reminded me of my own bland beginners peppersteak sauce.

Our dinner for two came to less than $100 with the 10% included tip.

Except for the giant wooden overweight budda decorating the room there was little evidence of the adjoining Buddists Temple.

Pros: Large selection , Lunch and Evening hours, Great service

Cons: Not authentically spicey (or is that a pro?)

Amazing! The BestEver!

This is, by far, the most impressive vegetarian restaurant at which I have ever dined! I can't offer enough superlatives about the selection, the presentation, the space, and the wait staff! This is definitely worth returning to Macau to experience! All 30+ pages of their menu are at www.facebook.com/sumyuenmacau, and I've written a full review with photos on my Jamaican in China blog at http://www.jamaicaninchina.com/?p=3236

Pros: Great selection, Huge dining area, Did I mention "great selection?"

Cons: Not enough time to enjoy everything!
