Absolutely Fabulous Vegetarian Cuisine

I've been to the "Graceful" many times. It's one of my favourite restaurants. It has a Buddhist vegetarian theme. For lunch there's fantastic dim sum that mimics the real thing! There are fantastic entrées for dinner too. Some of the dishes have egg-noodles which are okay for most vegetarians... read more

I love coming to this restaurant for their dim sum. So many great dishes. Love the chilli dumplings, steamed stuffed bean curd, steamed sticky rice amongst many others. As a vegetarian, I'm always happy when I find a new veggie restaurant to go to. I often take friends and family to Graceful for a yummy meal. They always like it... More

Graceful Vegetarian is a terrific addition to the GTA's abundant stock of wonderful Asian restaurants. This establishment caters to Buddhists and Vegans with fresh and flavorful dishes with some of the best mock meats I have ever encountered. Stir fried 'beef' in noddles, lemon "chicken" and crispy "chicken" are favorites as are the vegi dumplings and tofu with mixed mushrooms.... More

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant near the Pacific Mall in Markham. It specializes in vegetarian food and does amazing things with wheat gluten. The facebook page will give you the menu: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Graceful-Vegetarian-Restaurant/110847325597844 and ideas of the many ways they cook "mock" meat. We ordered a gluten free meal - steamed veggies with tofu and one of us ordered... More

My mother in law is Chinese and a vegetarian and it's hard to find restaurants we both like since I love meat. The food here actually tasted good and my mother in law was also very happy. The imitation meat is actually tasty. Will be back for sure!

First it was difficult to find. It really is not facing Steeles Ave, but at the farthest distance of the plaza in back. We got there after trying to find it for 20 minutes. We arrived one half hour before closing and were rushed to do a take out. The waiter was very nice. We chose a chicken and broccoli,... More

I've been meaning to try this place for while since I've read such great things about it! We ventured out recently on a Friday night. It wasn't very busy inside. Decor is very "fine dining-ish". They were playing some soothing music in the background. The gentleman that greeted us at the door was super friendly - genuine - not fake!... More

My boyfriend and I have been eating at Graceful Vegetarian restaurant for about a decade now, and I finally thought it was high time to write a review. Look no further if you are craving Chinese vegetarian fare; this restaurant is absolutely the best! You cannot go wrong with any items; whether ordering dim sum or from the main menu,... More

I absolutely love to eat at the Graceful Vegetarian Restaurant. We've been there many times and no matter what we order, the food has always been amazing. The spring rolls and the hot pot are great and the mock fish and chicken look and taste like the real thing. Their mushroom soup is outstanding. I'm getting hungry just thinking about... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time last week and were very pleased. The pepper steak was delicious and it was hard to believe that we weren't actually eating meat but rather a mock version. We also ordered Cantonese noodles and enjoyed them very much. The portions were good, as were the prices and service. Would definitely recommend... More
