8, Jalan Panggong (at 1 street west of Jalan Petaling), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 50000

Simple Chinese Buddhist restaurant established since the 1980s. Located behind the central police station, perpendicular road to the Hotel Mandarin Pacific. Offers a pictorial menu and a la carte rice and noodle dishes. Signage above the door is small, so look for it. Reported January 2017 mainly vegan, but serves dairy in some dishes. Open Mon-Sun 10:00am-9:30pm.

Simple but tasty - Edit

Simple restaurant that serves mainly rice and noodles with vegetables and all kinds of fake meat. I tried the noodles with fake duck and they were satisfying, but nothing very special. Considering the cheap price it comes at a good value. Will definetely come again to try another dish.

Pros: Everything seems to be vegan on the menu, Friendly staff

Disappointed - Edit

Ordered noodles with spicy bean sauce and I got a bunch of cold glued together noodles topped up with horribly sweet sauce that tasted like watered down katchup with some veg.

Pros: it will do if you can't find another place to

Cons: the portion i got was small comoared to the cost.

Fried crispy "goose" on rice is epic - Edit

Loved this place! I recommend the fried goose on rice, fried cauliflower florets, and stir fried greens. Definintely worth a try if you are near Chinatown! Menu is hard work but if you combine looking at the photos with the words only menu it starts making sense.

Pros: .

Cons: .

Nice and cheap vegan food - Edit

We had been looking forward to finally come to KL for vegan food and did not get disappointed at this place. The Menu is big and for us was the Foto-meu very helpful, since we could not understand the written menu. It is mainly mock-meat/-fish dishes that you find in chinese vegetarian places and they were all vegan.
We ordered 4 dishes for 2 persons, and i was a lot - we were full for many hours. I loved the homemade Satay and the mockduck. The price ist cheap and the people working in the restaurant are very nice and friendly.

Pros: tasty vegan food, Satay, good value

Cons: none

Nice place. - Edit

It's been many years that I go to eat there when I'm in KL. At first the people working there may look a bit cold but they are not, quite friendly in fact.
Some of the dishes are a bit bland but most are very good, portion are good too.
I would recommend the bean curd pot but plenty of other meals are tasty too such as the mock fish.
All meals are served with pickled green chillies on the side.
They also sell various biscuits and crackers.
I asked them several times if it's vegan : they cook without eggs or dairy products, it's all vegan like most "vegetarian" Chinese places in South East Asia - the same applies for the biscuits they sell.

Pros: Cheap, Fast, Good to very good

Ok but nothing special - Edit

Ok vegetarian restaurant. The menu wasn't as huge as we hoped (not hundreds, maybe a bit under one hundred options) and if you just ask to have more time with it, they understand english well. We tried chilli kang kong and malaysian beancurd (with brown rice). Quite ok, bit bland and salty taste.

Pros: you get food quickly, inexpensive, brown rice , everything vegetarian

Cons: saltiness, bland tastes

cheap and delicious - Edit

you have hundreds of options, all presented in an old photo album. I felt a little stressed, because the waiter(?) was standing next to us the whole time, but the food was really good!
we paid 40RM for 3 dishes, rice and 2 water.

Pros: Location, Price

Inexpensive, huge variety - Edit

Pretty standard mock dishes, veg and noodles. The menu is a vast picture book, but the staff will be wanting to take your order before you're half way through it. The dishes are very cheap and the portions ginormous. The staff had to tell us to stop ordering and even then we took a mountain of food away. The bean curd skins come recommended.

Pros: Cheap, Central, Big portions

Cons: No atmosphere, Bit grubby

Hundreds of menu options! - Edit

This is a Chinese vegetarian restaurant (does takeaway too). The staff weren't that friendly really but they weren't UNfriendly. There was loads to choose from with photos of everything. Prices reasonable - most dishes 11 ringitts. Most of it seemed to be mock meat, and we aren't into that so got a tofu dish and singapore noodles - the singapore noodles were great and were only about 5 ringitts for a huge portion!

The place is open 10am - 9.45pm every day. It's a few minutes walk from Pasar Seni Station. If you find the McDonalds its about 50m south from there.

Pros: Huge menu, good price
