tasty, cheap food - Edit

Good vegan selection, the food is delicious, I had the 'good health bowl', highly recommend! Also the steamed buns are great. They also make bubble teas and the fruit jelly balls are vegan. Service was pretty slow, but it's only a small place and the food is worth the wait.

Pros: friendly, knowledgeable staff, good vegan selection, homely feel

Cons: slow service

Something different in Asian veg cuisine - Edit

This is a very subtle cuisine -- without overpowering flavours. We had the crispy tofu rice pot and the "fish" rice pot, as well as udon noodle. All were excellent, generously portioned, and reasonably priced (c. $12). You need to let the waiter know if you are vegan, as there seem to be quite a lot of dishes that use egg and milk. I would still recommend, however, as there are plenty of selections for vegan diners.

Pros: good food, good service, reasonable $$

Excellent food, homely atmosphere - Edit

I have not been disappointed by a single meal at Wei-e Era Cafe, and though I don't live near Concord, find myself going there just to eat some Taiwanese. The food is flavoursome (but not overly-sweet or salty or oily like some other Asian eateries) and fresh, but also interesting and inexpensive.

Each time I and my partner find ourselves ordering too much and leaving with cramps because everything on the menu just demands to be tried, and yet the servings are plentiful.

Pros: excellent, interesting food, good value, friendly staff

good food, friendly service - Edit

This is a small Taiwanese cafe that we've been visiting for a short while now and we love it. The choice is pretty good for a small cafe and the service is really friendly. It's got a homely feel to it (think the owner lives upstairs).
The best dishes are the Kimchi tofu, beancurd hot pot and udon noodles.
We also had chilli fries which was nice. They make good bubble tea also.

Definitely recommend this for a lunch or a casual dinner. It's a pretty small place so not great if you're looking to take a group larger than 5-6 ppl.

Pros: tasty food, good variety, friendly service

Cons: small cafe, cash only

Excellent Food! - Edit

Been eating the Wei-e Era Taiwanese Vegetarian Cafe for over a month now, an the food is excellent. They have a great range of distinctive dishes that are amazing.

The steam pots and rice pots are fresh and authentic. They also have a wide range of entree's like their dumplings, fryed peal mushrooms or tofu dishes.

the only caveat is that the store is near the corner of Parramatta road so there is a tendency to miss it but it is well worth the visit. The staff are friendly and attentive - and make a suprisingly great tasting coffee.

*****

Pros: Vegan, Great tasting, Range of dishes

Cons: Can't think of any

havelock 22 Feb 2013 - just to follow up on this review. Now been eating here for several months - the food is consistent and excellent. We visit a few restaurants on our travels through Sydney, selectively choosing the one dish on the menu.

Treat yourself - just order the KimChee Tofu and you'll be an addict

Satisfied Cravings - Edit

I have been to Taipei, Taiwan, ROC, twice and often had cravings for the Taiwanese cuisines. Taiwan is the heaven for vegetarians and vegans, with so many places selling delicious vegetarian dishes from just every corner, ranging from market food stalls, food court kiosks, cafes, to 5-star fine dining restaurants. The food are fresh, simple, but tasty. Unfortunately, there is no real Taiwanese vegetarian restaurants in Sydney which served specialty "little dishes". So when I found out about this restaurant, I was really excited!

This family owned and operated new cafe (mother, sons, and daughter) adds new freshness to the vegetarian restaurant scene in Sydney. Serving Taiwanese specialty vegetarian "little dishes" such as vegetarian pork chops, dumplings, salt & pepper vegetarian oyster, cheese and vegetable omellette crepes, spicy french fries, etc (no onion, no garlic), in small entree servings with prices range $3.50 - $8.50 each, this cafe is surely a hit for many young patrons, while the locals love to drop by for their superb espresso coffees.

Main courses such as tomato noodle soups, vegetarian salted fish with rice in hot pot, vegetarian chicken and rice pot, etc are also delicious. The service is friendly, the seats are cosy, the kitchen and toilet are very clean, reflecting their high standard of hygiene. Various magazines are provided for customers' convenience. Soothing background music (Chinese flutes) is faintly playing in the background, adding extra comfort. I could just spend 2-3 hours easily here, reading magazines while enjoying my food.

This cafe is also easy to reach by buses and cars. From Burwood area, just walk past Westfield and the Burwood park until the end (towards Parramatta Rd). From city, take the 461 bus to Burwood and set down at the cnr of Parramatta Rd and Burwood Rd and walk around 200m to the cafe.

My cravings are truly satisfied here!

Pros: inexpensive, tasty specialty food, friendly & clean

Cons: quite far from city, no dessert, limited menu
