We are vegetarian Indians (no meat, no fish - ok with dairy) and I was looking for a different kind of vegetarian meal with different flavours when in Shanghai. I picked this off tripadvisor with a certificate of excellence! We went hungry with anticipation and were very disappointed with the flavours that came with the food. I would clarify that... More

We have been visiting this restaurant (West Nanjing Road) for almost 4 years now - they kept the quality great, ambient cozy and kept changing items all the time. Highly recommended if you are vegetarian and like to try different style of cuisine

Wow. This restaurant could make me a vegetarian for life. Every dish was incredible. It's not a fancy restaurant, but there's a reason it's one of the highest rates in TripAdvisor of all restaurants, not just vegetarian. It was better than Wujie on the Bund -- which is much fancier. In retrospect, I wish we had just gone back to... More

I went to the outlet at Fengxian Road, a 5-minute walk from Exit 1 of the Nanjing West Road metro station on Line 2. Easy to reach there even with luggage. I was so pleased with this place that I went back for 4 meals in 5 days. I tried the Mapo Doufu (spicy tofu), which was consistently good. The... More

This restaurant offers very good vegetarian dishes at decent price. The main entree size is good, some of the dishes serve small portion for the price, however the taste is good.

Finding vegetarian food in China can be tricky so this place seemed like an oasis in a desert. We ordered a few different dishes to share, most were delicious, one was totally disappointing (shrimps in pandan leaves or something like that). But it made a very nice alternative, as I say, glad I went but because the food wasn't amazing,... More

My friend and I shared about 5 dishes including a curry soup, mushroom szechuan, a noodle dish, a celery/mushroom/onion, a spinach dish and had a carrot/celery/lemon juice. All visually pleasing to the eye and glorious to the taste buds. Friendly service, bright airy, sizable dining area (there were some private rooms. Definitely leaped to one of my favorite restaurants on... More

I was invited to eat at this place the first time when I moved to Shanghai two years ago. Since them it's been one of my favorite go to spots. The food is amazing and will turn any carnivore into a vegetarian, kudos to the creative mind behind this healthy spot! Plus it is so reasonably priced!

We enjoyed eating here so much that we came back and tried it again a few nights later. The atmosphere is pleasant as were the staff. The menu was incredibly varied. You could come back every day of the week and order a completely different set of dishes every day. I must say though that although we enjoyed everything we... More
