“Amazing Vege Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I was here for the food - so I sucked up the lack of service (they don't seemed trained) but the staff are friendly and come over at the wave of a hand.
The menu is huge and so hard to decide what to get. Great choice! I can't wait to come back and try more!
Honestly, the food came out hot, BIG and smelling amazing. I was in serious Vege heaven.
I chose a baked clay pot dish, and my friend chose a crispy Soy nugget dish (delicious!!!)
I suggest sharing a few with Rice amongst friends as there is so much, and the jealousy factor of other people's choices is immense :)

“Delicious veggie food in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

We had a delicious meal at Mother Chu's whilst on holiday in Sydney. There are a good selection of Chinese vegetarian dishes on the menu and I believe there is no MSG used in any of them. We ordered steamed rice and a couple of vegetable and tofu dishes. The portions are generous and we left very satisfied. A good find!

“Very average vegeterian food, english language is a challenge”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

- Food cooking style is very vietnamese. Bland and boring
- Just 2 of them serving a full restaurant makes it very difficult to get service and their attention. Only one person in the restaurant understands english properly which makes things difficult

Excellent chinese vegetarian food.
Service is good and the food is amazing. We had a number of dishes, each one was perfect. And mother chu is still there, sitting in the back. Strongly recommend!

“Quantity and Quality in a Low-Key Environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Hefty portions of well-prepared, authentic ingredients (varieties of tree fungus, mushrooms), including protein substitutes (tofu, seiten), prepared and coated with just enough well-seasoned sauces. I particularly like that the one dish I selected with fried tofu nuggets came healthfully balanced out with steamed, rather than stir-fried, eggplant, thus cutting down on fat-consumption and 'lightening' the meal overall.

This is one of those store-front restaurants, with posters and colored lanterns decorating a clean and attractive but otherwise bare-bone restaurant--just tables and chairs, no statuary, plants, or other architectural decor. So one can walk in comfortably in the same clothes used for the day's sightseeing and be served promptly and conveniently. Not fancy--but a place worth visiting for the variety of offerings and the (for Sydney) reasonable prices for the quantity and quality of vegetarian offerings.
