I was reluctantly brought here for lunch with a client. I am not a fan of vegetarian food. But I was actually pleasantly surprised as to how edible all the food was. It actually tasted alright. Only problem is I got hungry again in an hour. Not bad value for money either. But still, not really my thing.

I've eaten in a number of vegetarian restaurants in Beijing, and was excited to try this one -- particularly since I was going to be visiting the Confucius Temple. So first of all, in case it wasn't obvious from directions and other reviews: You can't miss this place. It's literally across the street from the entrance to the Confucius Temple,... More

We visited this restaurant as a mix of carnivores and vegetarians and all of us enjoyed the food! There are plenty of mock 'meat' dishes and all are very tasty. We went once for the evening buffet and it was fun to try all the different dishes available. We also went another time and ate from the menu and I... More

The place is quite nice but the buffet was almost empty as of 18:10 and they did not re-filled it. Most of the dishes were not warm anymore.

After a freezing Feb. day of touristing, we were very happy to visit this delicious vegetarian restaurant. The menus come w/ pictures and english translations which was very helpful. We way over-ordered but loved every bite!

Huge buffet and big restaurant which still manages to maintain a cozy atmosphere. Great selection of tasty dishes like your personal hot pot, sushi, ice cream etc. Cheap and right around the corner from the Lama Temple.

I'm now a total carnivore, but I was a vegetarian for 4 years. And I'm quite a good cook. I know good food, trust me. And the bottom line is that this restaurant served me one of the greatest meals I've ever had, ever, vegetarian or otherwise. If I lived near this place, I would eat here every single day.... More

Our driver recommended this place to us, and boy were we impressed. This had to be one of the best vegetarian food we've ever had. Granted we aren't vegetarians, so we haven't had that much, but it can't be far off if it was so incredibly tasty even to us serial meat eaters. We had the buffet, which was really... More

This is the best restaurant for vegans in China. We went here after a few friends of ours recommended this place and they were right. The food is simply spectacular! A very authentic place with a relaxed atmosphere and a great service, we’ve come back here every day for fresh and light food. They have a wide range of dishes... More
