My favourite in Sandakan

A very good place for vegetarians. lots of choices in the menu for dinner.
Noodles dishes for breakfast; assorted dishes with rice for lunch.

Do note that they close on the day after a full moon or new moon in the Chinese lunar calendar.

Pros: very tasty and appetising aroma with each dish.

Cons: no air-conditioning.

Diverse menu, open for dinner

The most distinguishing feature of Ting Yuen is that it seems to be the only veg restaurant in the Sandakan area that's open for dinner (at least as of Feb 2017). It's ovo-vegetarian, but most of the dishes seem to be vegan. There's a gentleman who speaks a modicum of English who can answer questions about ingredients.

Each dish on the menu is offered in three sizes. Even the small size is fairly generous; the larger sizes are meant for big groups to share. For two people with average appetites, sharing 3 smalls might be enough.

We sampled five dishes, of which one was excellent (kidney mushroom something), two were pretty good, and two were somewhat plain but fine.

There's nothing healthy to drink (other than water). There are signs advertising fruit juices, but turns out those are powdered. Note the water chestnut beverage contains egg.

nice fake meat food!

Very nice veg Chinese restaurant special for you who is in to this fake meat thing! Veg chicken, veg duck, veg fish, tofu and vegetables. Soup, rice, curry,soy, plum, sweet and sour and so on. And hot and cold drinks. The owner is vegetarian since 22 years back.
Dishes from RM 6 to RM 20. Good price.
