A gem in a back corner of a strip shopping center. Every item on the buffet is vegan and amazing. I normally do not like buffets but this one had the advantage of small amounts of each item replenished frequently. Everything is labeled for content and coded for dietary restrictions. The General Tao "beef" had incredible taste and texture. We... More

Pros: * Healthful vegan fare. * One of the very few Chinese vegan restaurants that I am aware of. * Relatively inexpensive. Cons: * The booths and tables are in poor repair. * The menus were dirty and sticky. * Service was minimal. * Buffet items were refilled slowly. * Food quality was variable. Nothing is particularly great but there... More

WOW is the first word that comes to mind. We were referred by someone who lives with a Vegan and I can see why people really like this place. The food was amazing. We tried just about everything from the mail dishes, the apps, the salads and even the desserts... all of the food is vegan. My wife got tired... More

Su Tao is a totally vegan reastaurant run buffet style. There are all the old favorites - Gen Taos, seaweed salad, eggrolls, miso soup, hot and sour soup, vegetable lomein, shrimp toast, all vegan. On special occasions they double up on the buffet adding some unusual dishes. This year there was a Thanksgiving special featuring among other things a rice... More

You can't go wrong with anything at SuTao -- it's all amazing! The buffet is affordable and delicious. I'm especially happy that they clearly mark the foods that are spicy and if they are just spicy or very spicy. They have cold salads, sushi, hot foods, soup and dessert. If you are vegan or vegetarian in the Delco/Chesco area, the... More

Three of us enjoyed our lunch buffet here at a reasonable price. We were: one total vegan and two omnivores. After browsing the buffet we all decided to sample everything there instead of ordering off the large menu. Where do I start?? The soups looked great (Hot and Sour and Miso) but none of us thought we'd have room for... More

We always make it to Su Tao when we come to visit relatives. The food is great and there is a good selection. There is also a small play area for children.

My partner found this place while driving to Lancaster, PA. I was shocked to hear that there was a place that was entirely vegan and served their food buffet style. I was even more shocked to hear that it was delicious. I insisted we go as soon as possible--I was intrigued! The Cafe itself is a relaxed atmosphere. It serves... More

I went here with a very large group of friends and we all enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our group consisted of vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters but everyone liked the food. We all went with the buffet. I liked everything I tried. They did run out of certain buffet items that were not replenished. I am not sure if... More

We have been going here every couple of weeks for dinner since we discovered them a year or so ago. I second everything the other reviewers have said. It's absolutely excellent. We keep thinking we ought to order off the menu, but each time we go we cannot resist the buffet.
