Wish I could give it six stars!

Even though this is a vegan restaurant, it appeals to all. The cuisine is Asian. The buffet is our mainstay. Since we have gluten and dairy restrictions, the labeling of all the food is such a relief! There is a salad bar,hot bar and soups. All are delicious and creative. And their occasional... read more

Stayed in Malvern during a trip for a conference. My husband and I are vegan, so it was great to have an all-vegan option in this small town! We skipped the buffet as we prefer to order exactly what we'd like. Got the spring rolls, "kungbao seiten" (the menu has some fun spelling), and sweet and sour chicken. The food... More

We've visited this vegan buffet twice. The food was good, and we all found plenty to eat. Very good service.

......but only three for the service and ambiance. This is one of my favorite places to go for Chinese food anywhere, mainly because I'm a long-time vegetarian and they do an excellent job of offering a huge variety of very tasty all-vegan cuisine at a buffet that is very reasonably priced. I don't recall what the style of cooking is... More

I went to SuTao last night with my girlfriend for my birthday. She has be been vegan for 6 years, for me, it has been 6 months. We were pretty excited to try it out prior to going to a haunted house / haunted hayride event. I would like to review the restaurant on 4 criteria: 1. atmosphere: TERRIBLE. it... More

I give four stars for food, but 2 stars for ambience. We lucked out finding this place before a show at People's Light and Theatre (it's right next door). The cold buffet was amazing, great noodles and fresh vegetables, with all different kinds of favors. The hot buffet was decent. Some points off for a rather drab decor. Dessert and... More

It is not easy to find consistently good vegetarian chinese food. This is it. Completely vegan and delicious! My husband and I find ourselves returning for the buffet or menu several times a month. The buffet is an excellent value and includes lemonade, iced tea, and a limited selection of desserts. The food is flavorful and delicious. If anything is... More

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
