Excellent meal! - Edit

I was excited by the fact that this restaurant makes their own tofu, so visited tonight for dinner. My French is weak, but I was able to determine that most of the meals were vegan so I ordered the grilled ravioli - so delicious! I also got the chrysanthemum green tea, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Next time I come to Paris, I will definitely return to eat more meals here!

Pros: Many vegan options, Lovely staff

Cons: All the desserts had egg in them

Tofu on rue Ordener, 18 ieme - Edit

Hand -written Sign on front door reads: Closed for summer vacation July 18-August 31, 2016.

There's Also a sign saying the restaurant is open for dinner every night . So, try it after the 2016 summer vacation.

It's hard to contact this restaurant--the phone number listed on their awning is only a voicemail box, so we went there ourselves at the end of July . It's about 8 blocks from the Marcadet-Poissonier station.

Cons: Closed for summer vacation

Good Chinese - Edit

A very enjoyable meal, the dumplings ("raviolis") were especially good. The menu isn't huge (I was hoping they might have several types of tofu, for example, but it seems they only make one), and I am worried by the review below which suggests that the noodles included eggs (we did check with the waiter, but he may have misunderstood the question). I'd recommend this place, but don't expect a huge range of food, and perhaps make very certain that everything you choose is vegan.

Pros: Food is freshly made and tasty

Cons: Small menu, Everything may not be vegan

Delicious Tofu in Europe! - Edit

This was a fantastic find. I was looking for fresh tofu in Paris, and was excited to discover a place that specializes in homemade tofu. So far I have had the steamed dumplings, fried dumplings, scallion pancakes with seaweed, soup with dumplings, and the dan dan noodles. The staff is very friendly, and will add hot water to one’s teapot when low throughout the meal. There are also pre-made takeaway items as well as an option to heat at home. Four of the menu items with tea shared between two people is plenty of food and quite filling. Will be returning!

Pros: Delicious and Fresh Food, Great and Friendly Service, Pre-made Takeaway Options

Cons: Small Menu

Promising but... - Edit

... it was a bit disappointing since it is in fact only vegetarian and not vegan as written on the menu. They uses eggs in their noodles and ravioli, and also in their cakes. We discussed with the two owners and they said they will try to do some of their noodles without eggs. And we believe they will change the false "all comes from vegetables" from the menu. The restaurant needs improvement in that area.

In spite of that, the two main dishes that were vegan (the tofu curry and tofu mapo) were really good even if portions were relatively small. Their homemade tofu is really excellent, the dish is spicy and tasty. They always serve an homemade soy milk with their dishes, and it's good!

The owners are friendly even if they don't speak French very well, which makes sometimes difficult to be sure that a dish is vegan or not. But it is a matter of weeks/days before everything to be clear about that, I believe.
In terms of prices, they could be fairer with greater portions, but you have an homemade main dish for less than 10 euros.

When improvements will be made about which dish is vegan or not, this restaurant would deserve three or four happy cows for the quality of their homemade food.

Pros: homemade food, excellent tofu, friendly staff

Cons: uses eggs and writes all is vegan, small portions, limited real vegan choice
