Best food in China!

We came here on my birthday as a special treat. As veggies we'd spent most of the tour eating broccoli & beans (actually, I'm exaggerating slightly as we did find a few other good veggie restaurants!). We sat outside on the terrace which is a lovely place to eat (though the whole restaurant looks... read more

Maybe the most beautiful restaurant in the West Street of Yangshuo, with Buddhist like furniture, terrace on the river and a surprising wall with bottles of wine but...when we asked to get a Tuscany white wine (not even expensive) served chilled we discovered they don't put the wine in the fridge and don't even have a basket with ice! The... More

Ok food, quite expensive. Wasn't overly impressed but not bad. Maybe worth trying once. Service was reasonable

The location of this restaurant is very inviting, everything is well furnished and we had dinner in the small garden/balcony they have outside. Although it is a vegetarian restaurant, we are not vegetarian but we were attracted by the inviting photos in the menu. The food is served in big quantity, but it is not very tasting. We tried four... More

After struggling to find solely vegetarian restaurants on my three week trip round China (im sure they're there but my lack of being able to speak the language is a bit of a hindrance!) I found Pure Lotus and what a find it was. I ate here twice in the space of a few days and both times it was... More

We had an excellent lunch: good vege food, excellent service, and lovely terrace, on a calm river, full of plants and with view on a lovely bridge. We recommend

As part of China Odyssey 10 day Private Tour we visited Yanshuo on June 4 and was very impressed with the vegetarian food at the Pure Lotus Veg Restaurant. The noodle soup, braised eggplant, vegetables in curry sauce were all delicious.

You have to try the vegan meatballs and also the bamboo shoot with seitan dish - both were some of the greatest mock meats we have ever tasted (and we have eaten our fair share). Very nice atmosphere, especially the little outdoor terrace in the back.

Fancy, but fabulous food. They've made meat-looking dishes from vegetables (which is slightly strange if you are actually a vegetarian with no desire to eat the meat anyway...). But good quality food. Definitely recommend!
