Reasonably priced, but nothing fresh on the menu

Food was OK, but not great; too many mock meat dishes for my liking. Friendly staff, short turnover times, rather clinical atmosphere. Would maybe go again for takeaway, but probably not dine in.

Pros: Friendly staff, Reasonable prices, Vegan options

Cons: Abundance of mock meat dishes, No fresh food, Rather clinical atmosphere

Hidden Gem!

This place is the definition of a hidden gem! Definitely my favourite vegan place for dinner in Brisbane. It has a hugeee vegan range and all very very reasonably priced. Cannot recommend enough!

Pros: Lots of vegan and vegetarian options, Quality food for extremely reasonable prices!

I hadn’t been here for many years, and I ordered food from Uber eats. It was ok at best. The stir fired Xingbao Mushroom dish was pretty tasty, as were the bean curd rolls, but the other 2 were not great at all. The have an extensive menu and I remember some doses were not too bad, but when I lived in Brisbane, I much preferred Kuan Yin.

Amazing variety of Asian vegan food!

Amazing varieties of vegan Asian food menu (some dishes are vegetarian). Food was good, and location was very convenient. Food and value for money was good but not a big fan of the dessert. I always visit this place every time I’m in Brisbane – Will be back for more!

100% yum

I ate the duck special lunch set - yummo! TBH never tried duck in my life, but the soy meat ‘duck’ was so good!
My non-vegan friends were so impressed with their meals.
Menu marked with vegan or vegetarian options.
Will be back again😄

Pros: Mock mean and tofu options, Really tasty food, So many options - spoilt for choice!

Cons: Only open for dinner until 8pm on Fri & Sat

Fab food and friendly

The extensive menu is clearly marked as to what is vegan (the majority of the menu) and what has a vegan option. The food was served quickly and all of it was great! I loved the spicy lemon chicken - the flavours were more complex and better than most lemon "chicken" dishes, but it still satisfied that comfort food itch (I'm currently on holiday here and my fave comfort takeaway dish at home is lemon chicken) It came with a good sized serve of rice and delicious fresh bok choy that was prepared well. The dumplings were also lovely. The woman who served us was friendly and cheerful, and the jasmine green tea was delicious.

Pros: Huge menu, clearly labelled, Good quality ingredients prepared really well

Delicious food!

Absolutely love the food here, especially the salt and pepper chicken!! I’m not usually a fan of fake meats but it’s delicious and I highly recommend it. Veggies are fresh and there’s so many options to choose from it’s great, I will be trying something new every time for sure! Well priced compared to most restaurants in the city as well, you can get an entree and main for $20 or less

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Salt and pepper chicken

Heaven in Earth

This was my first vegan experience and will always be remembered fondly. Super delicious food that tastes fresh and vibrant.

Essentially still the best vegan Laksa I've had anywhere and I'm prepared to die on that hill.

Yummy teas.

Pros: MIDI soundtrack, Cute decor, Laksa

cheap + delicious

everything we had was great - the fried chicken, which was so cheap, tasted exactly like the $20 one from Bodhi in Sydney. Miso soup was so good we ordered another one. Dumplings were good too but pretty much how you expect dumplings to taste. Recommend trying the more interesting items here, mock meat was all great

Tea Master is a place in which I have only visited once, the food was ok but didn't stand out enough for us to come back again. The staff were friendly and did a good job and the location was convenient.

Pros: Nice staff, Convenient location

Quali-Tea Menu

Tea Master has an affordable, rather large menu packed with mock meat options. It's the perfect spot for lunch if you're in the Valley and is close to the train station. Sweet yam rolls, radish cake and dumplings were all tasty picks from the menu and I would definitely order them again, sweet yam rolls being the standout! Meals are on the smaller side, which makes it ideal to try a couple of options at once.

Not all that

Had chicken skewers which were really tough, came with Satay dipping sauce didn’t taste like they been cooked in Satay. Salt and pepper chicken greasy. Duck noodles were so salty and I had duck set, the duck was nice like smoked duck chewy though. Didn’t enjoy the jelly it was tasteless and really hard. It’s nice inside but I wouldn’t go again.

Pros: Lots of options , Fully vegetarian , Cheap food

Cons: Noodles too salty , Tough chicken skewers , Food not that hot

Don’t Miss This Place‼️

Oh. My. Goddess. Even though it’s not 100% vegan — and the highest rating I usually give is four stars - the quality, quantity and prices have impelled me to tender the coveted five-star rating to this joint.

Regularly disappointed by Australian laksa and tom yum, this was by far the BEST tom yum I’ve had this side of Thailand (and these people are Taiwanese, not Thai) - delicious broth with lots of lemongrass, al dente rice vermicelli, absolutely packed with vegetables (bok choy, wood ear? or some sort of fungus) with tofu puffs and vish balls; and a very generous serving to boot - all for $10.80!?! Crazy.

Pros: delicious food, generous portions, friendly service, super inexpensive

Cons: not 100% vegan, not in Melbourne !!

Don't let the unassuming exterior fool you, this place offers friendly service and a massive menu of mostly vegan options (and a smattering of vegetarian). I enjoyed the Hainan 'chicken' rice and the vegetable dumpling soup. I can't wait to come back and try more!

Very unassuming but fabulous

So glad we found this place (through Happy Cow of course) - such a multitude of vegan choices that it was almost overwhelming and the mock duck dish we had was very tasty. We want to head back there at the first given opportunity on our long weekend in Brisbane. Would thoroughly recommend you going! Doesn’t look like much from the outside but if you want quick, dirty but tasty food, get yourself down there!

Pros: Tons of vegan options , Cheap but super tasty

Best vegan choice in Brisbane

I LOVE this place! There are so many great options for vegans (vegetarian dishes are clearly marked) and the food is just great. So tasty, and there's something for anyone. Staff are super friendly. This is one of the best vegan places I've been in the world to be honest. A must visit. Now takes cards.
PS I would recommend the chicken sesame noodle soup. Delicious!

Pros: delicious , so cheap! , lovely staff😄

Cons: hard to find a park around there

Simple but plausible

The service wasn't the best. They didn't care to serve the whole table in one go but instead gave a few meals to people and several different tables. This meant that people either let their food go cold whilst waiting so they ate their meal and nearly finished it by the time the other people's food came round.

My husband and I ordered set meals which were representative of the cost ($15) so wasn't super impressed. The side of vegetables came swimming in water for example.

Cons: Poor service
