Fantastic all vegan Chinese restaurant!

If you like spicy Chinese food then this is the place for you and is a fantastic find if you are vegan. The menu is not too big but everything listed sounds delicious. I had Jia Chang Dou Fu (A Sichuan dish with smoked tofu, taro root, shiitake, chilies, babycorn, garlic shoots, snowpeas in black... read more

This is one of my absolute favourite restaurants in the world. I adore the food in this restaurant - it's excellent and has kept the same high quality since they opened (now about 20 yrs ago). The place is small, so you might have to share table and/or wait in line - depending on what time/day you visit. The interior... More

A simple but very good place for lunch. The food is excellent and service is nice. People are friendly. It's a good place for vegetarians and people who want to try Asian style of vegetarian dishes.

Had dinner here with family in June, and was pleasantly surprised by the flavors. I went into a the experience with low expectations, as I'm neither vegan nor vegetarian. The dishes were super fresh, flavorful and bursting with color. I loved that it was served family style, so that you were able to try many different entrees. For Stockholm, it... More

Spicy Chinese food at its best, and you don't miss the meat! Restaurant is small so you would probably want to book if you can (though we walked off the street). Not cheap but fairly good value for money.

If you are in Stockholm, this restaurant is a must visit, irrespective of the fact that u are veg or non veg. The food is delicious and heavenly. It's a small cozy restaurant situated in a residential area and its difficult to locate. The price is little bit on the higher side but come on you are in Stockholm :).

This is a must for every vegetarian. A small restaurant in a quiet street with friendly service and amazing food. Totally vegan. We tried two different main course and they were both delicious and very rich in flavors. It was packed when we got there and we had to wait. Make sure you book ahead.

I simply LOVE this place and their food. We went and the place was fully booked, so we asked for take away. In just 15 minutes our food was ready - and it tasted absolutely amazing! I have never had a better Chinese meal before! Please do not miss out on this very special and fantastic vegan food experience!

This restaurant has been an absolute family favorite for last 5-6 years. My wife and I love the flavorfull, hot curries that are served here. The concept is they make everything vegan. There is soya chicken and soya prawns and soya meat and what not. And let me tell ya the taste beats even the real one. Once you have... More
