This place made me so excited. Vegan versions of practically every Chinese entree and appetizer you could imagine. Very reasonably priced and tasty :)

Very good - Edit

You can get all of your takeout Chinese faves in vegan form at this hyper-accommodating and very friendly establishment. The vegan buffet is ridiculously good, with everything from egg rolls to faux shrimp to orange chicken, vegetable tempura, faux ham and duck and beef and chicken and always friendly staff encouraging you to eat more and offering to-go boxes...AT A BUFFET; does it get any better than that? I think not.

Pros: DELICIOUSLY VEGAN, Always serves vegan food, even w/o buffet, All vegan buffet twice a week

Cons: Serves meat, Not vegan, Really that's the only con

Fun buffet - Edit

Not the best Chinese buffet you've ever had, but you can't beat the price. They are super friendly and there are a lot of options. Great that this exists in Boulder. Don't expect gourmet, just go and enjoy yourself.

Pros: All-you-can-eat Chinese, Great price, Lots of options and yummy mock meats

Cons: A little heavy

Vegan menu and buffet! - Edit

Tsing Tao is a good place to go for a treat. They have vegan and vegetarian menu. The vegetarian menu has a lot of vegetable dishes and also has items that can be vegan as well, while the vegan menu features a lot of mock meats. The soy sesame chicken is awesome (and just as good as a restaurant in San Francisco I recently went to that had some of the best "soy chicken" around). Both the "beef" and "chicken" is excellent. -- The lunch specials include vegan hot and sour soup (Which is SO GOOD!) your choice of white or brown rice and a vegan eggroll.

On their buffet (which is Monday and Thursday nights from 5-9) they offer a truly spectacular assortment of vegetable and mock meat dishes. Chicken and beef are joined with ham, duck, shrimp, etc. (if that's your thing) -- some of those other mock meats don't do it for me (especially the shrimp) but it's worth trying. In addition to noodles, rice and vegetable dishes, there are also unique dishes like spring rolls, dumplings, wontons, stir-fried beans, potatoes, and salad items.

Unfortunately, the price for the buffet has gone way up and it's now $14.95 for an adult, so other reviews saying it is economical are a little out of date. Still, these price hikes aren't unusual in very-expensive Boulder and it's still a good place for a treat - but go to the buffet early because the dishes don't hold up the longer they're out on the table. We went late once and it was just not good.

Pros: Vegan Buffet!! , great lunch specials, service is great

Cons: buffet is a little pricy

Good mock meats - Edit

I wish I could have been visiting on a day they have their buffet, because the two mock meats we did have were great. The sesame chicken was our favorite. The texture of the fried beef is good, however we did not care for the orange sauce.

Pros: mock meats , good portion size

Vegan Buffet Mondays too - Edit

They have the vegan buffet on Monday nights now too! Fantastic place to go on a Monday or Thursday night for the vegan buffet. Incredible variety of vegan options

The regular menu has a lot of vegan options, but seems boring only getting 1 thing. Would be good with a large group of vegan's splitting a bunch of entrés, Best to go Monday or Thursday night.

Pros: Vegan friendly buffet with TONS of options

Cons: Generic Chinese atmosphere., Not as good on non vegan nights.

Vegan buffet on Thurs! - Edit

An inexpensive, flavorful vegan choice for Thursday nights. This is a great choice for the vegan family - the buffet more than satisfies all our appetites. I agree that the faux-shrimp is not very good. However, the bok Choy in garlic sauce is delicious as is the 'beef' with broccoli. I love that they always provide brown rice as a choice too.

Pros: Very vegan friendly , great buffet on Thursdays

Cons: faux shrimp best avoided!

Decent veggie buffet - Edit

Thursday night buffet is all vegan. We tried it when I was craving some Chinese food. Most was pretty decent, but the fake shrimp were bad. The vegan buffet was a bit pricier than other Chinese buffets.

Pros: Vegan buffet

Sesame Soy Beef - Edit

Very yummy. It was $9.95, with a choice of brown, steamed, or fried rice. There is a good sized vegan section on the menu. And they're advertising Thursday night vegan buffets, from 5:30 to 8:30 PM.

Pros: excellent food, attentive staff

Vegan Buffet every Thursday! - Edit

Yes, that's right! Every Thursday from now on they are having a vegan buffet. Last night was the best. Lots to choose from including vegan soy ham, vegan duck, vegan beef. Sesame tofu is so yummy and veggie lo main too. Daily they have a large vegan menu. It's typical Chinese food, only vegan!

Excellent - Edit

There are a lot of vegan options. There are the usual Buddha's delight, vegetable, and tofu entrees plus a vegan chicken and vegan beef menu. I tried the soy 'beef' with black bean sauce and it was delicious. Another plus was that they were donating 5% to vegfest on the night I went.

Pros: many vegan options, great taste, good service

Cons: far from home

Yummm! - Edit

I was in Boulder a couple of weeks ago, visiting from Florida and I ended up going here for lunch twice! The Sesame "chicken" was the absolute best Chinese food I've ever had- I'm craving some right now! If you go for lunch you get a lot of food- your entree with rice, a spring roll, orange slice, and tea. All of that was under $7. I also tried my boyfriend's food- the Garlic "chicken," which was also good, but I liked the Sesame better. The Mongolian "chicken" was salty, not sweet like the other two, but still good.

Pros: Awesome deal, SESAME "CHICKEN"

Cons: not a location near me
