Pros: Good variety of food, Has prata

Cons: Takes very long to serve during meal times , Serves egg.

Delicious Foods!!!

Price cheaper now compared to previously after renovation. And service improved & faster. Surprised that after just 10mins of ordering, our Kang kong vegetables and rice came to our table..

Pros: Cheaper now

Wide Range of Veg Food

Zi Zai Vegetarian has been always one of my favourite for Chinese Zi Char.

They have a wide range of veg food and the price is reasonable.

Just that this place can get very crowded during dinner time especially on the 1st and 15th of chinese lunar calendar.

Pros: Reasonable price

Cons: Super crowded during dinner

Homey food

This is one of those places that both vegetarians and non-veg can enjoy their meals at daily. All dishes are cooked on the spot, and the quality is seldom compromised despite the Low prices. Even though my mom and my Brother and basically everyone I know recommend this place for their Hokkien mee (request for eggless if you’re a vegan) and Xing Zhou beehoon, I am more impressed and a complete sucker for their fish slice soup. The “fish” is our usual Chinese seaweed tofu skin fish, but what made me very happy is the amount and variety of vegetables in the dish. Instead of merely bok choy, the dish included very generous portions Chinese white cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower and vegetarian fishballs, complete with a generous topping of seaweed. The one time where the new lady working there almost messed up my order by forgetting the seaweed, she came back with an entire bowl of shredded seaweed even before I noticed that the seaweed was gone. That service attitude was pretty cute :)

Pros: affordable, convenient (near bus stop), comfort food

Cons: not much variety amongst its own dishes

Zi Zai is definitely the place to satisfy your hunger for comfort food, that is, if your comfort foods are zichar dishes

One thing I found out from my visit is that the ‘fried rice’ on the menu is more than just plain fried rice - you can customise it and have options like Tom Yum fried rice, olive fried rice and so on. I didn’t know that!

In my opinion, they’re not the best stir fried carrot cake I’ve tried.

Pretty decent other than the tons of birds flocking around

My favorite dishes would be the clay pot fish soup, horfun, sin chew beehoon. Remember to opt out the eggs for the beehoon if you're a vegan and request for less oil!!

Do bring tissues just in case, and indoor seating is much more recommended.

Pros: Affordable , Variety of options to choose from

Cons: Cleanliness - tons of bird [censored] , Service - sometimes can be inefficient/slow, Oily food

Played customer!

I had been to this veg eatery a couple times, experience there has been ok. But it is yesterday night that they enraged me. The staff played me. I ordered a set meal to take-away as usual, this guy probably recognised me as a regular by now. After ordering, I was waiting as usual, just some distance away from him. Then 15mins passed, 30, 45.. I felt strange that people who ordered later than me had received their orders.. but I didnt think he would miss me, as I am kinda just in front of him, and I waited until there are no other people waiting (I stuck out there as a sore thumb!) There is no way anyone couldn't missed me. I finally went up, and asked what happened to my order, then he gave a fake surprised look at me that he overlooked it, and passed me the only packet thats on the table, which by the way, also stuck out like a sore thumb! There is no way they could've not noticed me, or the only packet lying on the table for SO FREAKING LONG! I just took it n left. On hindsight, I should've asked for the manager...

Need Improvement On Hygience

I was their regular patron at this eatery until three different occasion with serious issue. Found snail on vegetables. Nymph on my bitter gourd soup and insects. Sounded back to them on their quality and hygience never got improved. Some staffs attitude is really bad. I dont ask for refund and not even a sorry for all this bad experience.

The place is a bit like coffee shop style. You can either have set meals or order stir fried. Rather typical Chinese food. Portion is slightly big (you can choose from small, medium and big portion) and good if you are to eat in big group. We have 5 adults and 2 children. Had a very satisfying (and a bit over eat, ordered too many dishes) meals at around SGD 70, including drinks.
