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!

Nice to find a vegetarian restaurant after 10 days. Turnen out to be very expensive and not so tasteful. Hardly spiced and pack of structure.

After a miserable experience in other restaurant in Yangshuo, we decided to give a try at Pure Lotus. Although we are not vegetarians, we loved the food so much here so we came every evening, to try different things. The stuff was friendly and the atmosphere is very nice. We definitely recommend this place :)

This place is a hidden pearl of the culturally destroyed Yangshuo. Food is medium pricy (around 60/dish) but you will leave full and very satisfied. Especially your tastebuds :) Staff was very friendly and even let us go with the leftovers. They even gave us to-go chop sticks and napkins. Try to get a seat at the back balcony, it's... More

The decor and atmosphere were really pleasant, the tablet to make the orders fun, the waitresses polite and English speaking, but I went there for the food. I ordered a steamed pumpkin with mixed vegetables. I got half a small pumpkin with mainly corn, some peas and some bits of tofu. The whole tasting pretty bland, not much seasoning or... More

This restaurant served some of the best Chinese food we have ever had! especially as we were vegetarian and could order anything off the menu. The food was deliecious too, we ate here a few times and loved the meal each time. A definate must for veg and non-veg alike!
