“Best Chinese Vegetarian Cafe in NZ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

I have eaten here quite a few times on all my visits to Christchurch. The Beijing Roast is just the tastiest dish ever - never had anything like it anywhere else - Singapore, Thailand, India etc. I often take an extra one away for lunch the next day. The service is friendly and fast and the prices are very reasonable. the decore is zip-nada-zilch - you come here for the food - not the ambiance. For strict vegetarians - this place is great - no meat, fish or eggs; and no stinking onion or garlic is used either - perfect for strict Buddhists, Vaisnavas, and Jains.

“quirky mis-matched cute with tasty cheap food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2010

Super cheap and tasty vegetarian food. No real atmosphere in here, make your own! I came with a large group, the service is very friendly, staff enjoy what they do. Very simple decor, quite cute and quirky. Nice place to come on a budget or if yo are looking for a nice selection of vegetarian and vegan food :)
