In a country where vegetarian food is hard to find, this place was my Disneyland. This restaurant is less than a minute's walk from Lama Temple. The buffet offers a huge choice and since everything in it is vegetarian, we were able to try various items without having to worry about ingredients. The food was very well prepared/presented and full... More

We went here because of Trip Advisor reviews and expected something incredible. Finding the restaurant through the Hutongs from the Metro was fun, and the setting was very pleasant and friendly. But by 2030 on a Wednesday it was almost empty and the first thing we were told is that it would close at 2130 so there was little or... More

As a non-vegetarian i must say that this is really an extraordinary restaurant. The quality of the dishes is great even though they are plenty of them. Normally buffet means many mediocre dishes. There is something for everybody. Even the prices are very reasonable. This came just in time after a very long morning walking. I would definitively visit again!

After reading all of the great reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to try this veg restaurant over some of the other veg restaurants highly rated on Trip Advisor or recommended in lonely planet. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in my experience. In the restaurant's defense, I should have visited this restaurant a bit earlier in the day. I got there... More

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!
