Delightful Vegetarian Chinese Food

Being a vegetarian, I am usually very wary about eating in Chinese restaurants because of fish and duck sauce being used in preparations. No such worry here. We were assured by the waitress that everything was 100% vegetarian (or vegan - menu marked). To my vegetarian and vegan friends - this... read more

Thanks to my vegetarian friends I've been to my share of vegetarian restaurants, in Toronto and around the world. This is the worse I've ever had. We went here for our vegetarian friend's birthday. It's so bad we packed up all the food and went to 666 ( another Chinese vegetarian) downtown. Do not order the sushi platter. It's the... More

Every time we come here we are so disappointed about how slow the service is. We literally wait 10 min for someone to come to our table then to get our drinks it takes 15 minutes. It's so sad because we love the food so much. They need to invest in servers.

When it came to restaurants serving Chinese food it seemed one had 2 choices, either one got healthy food minus the taste or tasty food minus the health advantage. Then 2 weeks back my friend suggested we try ‘Zen Gardens – a vegetarian restaurant’ as her friends had given it great reviews. I was game to check out the place... More

Zen Gardens is a great restaurant with a hugely extensive menu and plenty of veg options that carnivores would enjoy. I've been here many times with both veg and carnivore friends of mine and there are heartier options that my non-veg pals have really been able to savor. As a matter of fact, I'd received most of the recommendations for... More

This is the place for great vegetarian Chinese food. We did not miss the meat dishes, since the selection on the menu were for everyone. The food served was very flavorful. To top off the food, I was amazed to see the selection of tea.

We have visited this restaurant a few times now. The most recent was a couple of weeks ago. My daughter and I ordered a few dishes and shared them. The lappa balls are particularly delicious. We also ordered curried shanghai noodles, spicy seitan appetizers, and steamed dumplings. The service is wonderful. The presentation of the dishes is always beautiful. We... More

After a long thinking of 3 months, ultimately we decided to visit Zen gardens and we were surprised it had so much of variety for vegetarians like us. Soups, appetizers, desserts, main course all good. Having tasted Dim-sum at places like Hong Kong, my daughter was not able to get same type any where else since after. She was pretty... More
