First Review by vegelover

Clean, Tasty but..... - Edit

I felt a little perplexed after eating here...

Menu was limited but OK

Quality Chinese/Vegan dishes....not creative in the Vegetarian sense...

Nice Clean Buddhist Concept....I agree with previous Comment " a bit like eating in a hotel foyer"...

Probably would go here once a year, but not my Weekly eat!

not your best bet - Edit

In general, Box Hill is full of surprises for veg*ns. I don't often travel out there but I had some business to attend to at Box Hill Centrelink and needed a quick lunch beforehand. Water Drop Teahouse is right round the corner and it delivered on cheap, fast, vegan food. The cafe is spanking clean and a little too sterile for my liking. On the ground floor of the temple, it feels a bit like eating in a hotel foyer. They have a small menu of a few soups and noodle dishes plus a daily rotating special with rice which is also served with a little bowl of wonton soup, a few fried yam rolls, and a few pieces of fruit, all for $10.50. The sides were a nice surprise especially given the dish I ordered wasn't extraordinary. I had the mock char siew pork which was served lukewarm with some sweet barbecue sauce. The rice was, as mentioned in the previous review, crunchy, dry, and also not really warm. None of the dishes were highly spiced, which is what you expect from temple food. All in all, the food was average and a little bland. I was happy with my meal but don't think I'd go back again, especially given the other veg*n options in the area.

Pros: value for money, cute side dishes

Cons: dry/crunchy rice, food served lukewarm , limited menu

Newly Discovered Gem In Box Hill! - Edit

Although been to this temple a few times in past few years, amazed to find out that now they have vegetarian food!

Clean, bright, neat, friendly staff, nice food, great location.

Tried Curry Laksa -- yum yum! One of the best.

Rice a bit dry/hard but the presentation and the pickles is just mouth watering. You get soup, fruits, yam rolls with the rice set meal (apart from rice and the vege sweet and sour).

Lemon in water is refreshing.

Love the fact that can pay respect to Buddha at third floor.
Love the fact you can grab a book and read quietly there.

Staff friendly & dedicated.

Will be coming here again & again!

Pros: Nice meal, Great atmosphere, Friendly staff

Cons: Rice can be a bit hard/dry.
