Amazing nurturing food - Edit

All vegetarian and vegan. I had the daily special which was rice, steamed veges, an amazing curry and some kind of fake meat dumpling dish. All soooo tasty. Very peaceful environment too. Lovely staff

So many flavours! - Edit

My sister and I went here for lunch today. Oh my gosh the food was so amazing! The staff were so friendly and kind. And they had a lovely fire we could sit by to keep warm. I feel like this cafe really pays attention to the small details. The water jugs had slices of orange, lemon and cucumber in them! And whilst it may not seem like a big deal its all the little things like that, that make your experience. We got the chic pea burger, steamed dumplings, salt and pepper soft tofu, and the daily curry special (it had mock beef in it made from beans!). All of which were super tasty and so full of flavour! The cabinet was also full of an array of cakes/treats which looked delicious but our stomachs were much to full to fit anything else. I did spot a vegan apple crumble served with ice-cream I will be going back for!

Pros: 1. Lovely staff, 2. Calm atmosphere , 3. Delicious food

I can't believe it's vegan! - Edit

Amazing! My boyfriend and I shared the pan fried dumplings (filled with veges like bok choy and ginger), BBQ steamed "pork" buns, and the frier noodles. All vegan. The noodles were served with a combination of veges, tofu and mock meats (the mock BBQ pork was the best).

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Choice of cabinet food or cooked meals, Mock meats

Cons: The wontons aren't vegan :(

Wonderful place and great food! - Edit

This is an experience that you can't miss. The architecture and design from outside is unique. The mains and desserts here are not to missed too! It really doesn't matter if you are a vegetarian or not, the food is fantastic, the environment is soothing

BUddhist Temple - Edit

I really liked this place. It is located inside the BUddhist Temple in Riccarton but itt gets quite a good buisness and the food is very tasty. The atmosphere is the best of almost any vegetarian restaurant I've reviewed so far and vegans, like myself, are very catered to.
