From bad to worse

I actually had to struggle to give this place even two dots, my finger hovering one for a time. But, though the service was truly terrible, the food was tolerable, so I landed on two, but barely. Six of us were there for lunch and all ordered from the modestly-priced Lunch Specials menu. I... read more

This review is like all the rest on Trip Advisor. If you've never been here -- go! This is a vegetarian, vegan, kosher Chinese restaurant located outside of Chinatown. (If it's vegan, it meets all of the other requirement -- including kosher). The menu is huge. You can pick dished randomly and be happy. It's clean, service is friendly, you... More

This is a very good Chinese vegetarian restaurant in Philly's City Center. The food is very tasty, the ambiance is top notch, the prices are decent and the service is very good. We were in Philadelphia for the weekend and wanted dinner after an evening of walking and shopping. Looking on TripAdvisor to find what was close, we decided that... More

This restaurant has an extensive menu, and is not simply focused on imitation 'meat' to create the dishes. The food was really tasty, and the service from the kitchen was prompt. The server even made our vegetable wraps (quite different than moo shoo in content) tableside - she had quite a technique!

A small but cosy place for great chinese food. Food was really sumptuous and enjoyed every bit of it. The quantity was also great. For a single person paying only $12 is really cheap. Definitely a must visit place for every vegeterian. Yes, one of the pure veg places.

The sesame seitan is out of this world! Initially, I thought okay its just another little Chinese place for dinner...at best it will be average, but I was really impressed! There are pages of vegetarian options at this place. It was so hard to choose what to order! As you decide what to order, they bring small cups of jasmine... More

The General Tso's is really all that! My family came for dinner the other night and ordered a little of everything to share. The soy protein steak tasted oddly like fish (I really enjoy fish so I loved it!), the "beef" with broccoli had a great sauce, the As-You-Wish tofu was nicely crisp, and the Triple Shredded in Garlic Sauce...
