Tasty, funny, quick

We arrived late for lunch to find the clean restaurant empty. While a few more customers came in we had the service all for ourselves. We tried the tofu "chicken" drums (they do taste like chicken), some simple and a bit too salty green beans, excellent spicy eggplants and a few more delicious... read more

Found a hair in a dish i ordered. Asked to see a manager and was told they were not in. I also asked for the dish to be removed off the bill but the best they offered was a 10% discount. Beware, they over charge as well so check your bill before you pay. Poor quality food and service. Best... More

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 place is amazing if you want Chinese food that... 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.
