“Superb Thai food for vegetarians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This restaurant is wonderful. It serves a particular style of Thai vegetarian food where different types of tofu are cooked to resemble meat. This is a traditional type of cooking that is popular with Thai buddhists, and can be found in many places in Thailand.
I actually prefer the food here to most regular Thai retsaurants, it is more tasty, the ingredients are fresh, and there is a large variety of dishes to choose from. In many visIts here I have never had a bad meal. The front part of the restaurant serves take-away, everything is very cheap and the servings are large. This restaurant has recently changed its name to Blossom Lotus but it seems to be the same people running it and the food is the same high standard. I would like to eat there every day if I only lived closer.

“Best vege mock food you can find in Sydney - 6 stars!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I am so surprised at finding this place only has 3 reviews. If i could i would give it 6 stars. The food is sooooo delicious. I don't bother going for the menu, just choose from the cooked dishes in the bain-marie. Favourites include the mock duck, the vege curry, the crispy soy and almost all dishes eaten. Recommend highly. Just to let you know the ambience isn't something i would rate highly, but the food makes up for it!

“Great range of food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

It was along the busy strip in Newtown. A very popular choice. I was very impressed with the range of foods, and the subtle flavours in the dishes we chose. Anything with mushrooms in it is highly recommended, as are the dumplings.

“Good but choose well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

I was lucky to go with Thai friends and this made a huge difference. They chose the menu items and we were well looked after. It is a very informal place and popular with alternative lifestyle people, vegetarians and health conscious/price conscious people.

Newtown is a buzzing place for food and bars so having a full vegetarian option like this - which is rare in Sydney - is good.

The food we had was very good.
