“Superb vegetarian restaurant, a must for veggies (and open-minded carnivores!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Don't be put off by the confusing location (at the back of a car park), this restaurant serves up delicious pure vegetarian food and we had a wonderful meal here. Particularly recommend the "Happiness Rolls" which are really good temaki sushi hand rolls, and also the very spicy but delicious tofu.

The decor/atmosphere is also really lovely. It's a bit hard to find, but taxi drivers will find the address and you should see the greeters in traditional garb who can show you in.

“Chic, friendly, tasty and healthy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Gigantic (literally and figuratively) menu. No pictures of the food, just esoteric references, but everything was fantastic.

“Awesome bliss for veggies !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

One of the best vegetarian restaurants to visit! This restaurant is run by Buddhist monks. A must visit for at least a one-time meal here! A pure delight for the taste buds and health freaks!
The ambience is really exquisite with a whole lot of creativity been used while serving the dishes.

This restaurant is located in the heart of the city and is well connected by the subway.

“If one thinks that vegetarians can't pamper their taste buds in Beijing then this place proves them wrong.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Located in the heart of the city, it is indeed a delight to be fed by the monks in the lap of luxury. The hospitality and warmth is no less to best of restaurants one can find in India. A visit to Beijing is incomplete without a one time meal here. I have decided to have a one time meal here on my every visit.

“Classy Vegetarian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is one of the classiest restaurants I've been in Beijing. The environment is elegant and they serve great foods with a lot of creativity in how the dishes are presented (all vegetarian so, no meat or fish).

You can get better fondues elsewhere in Beijing but it's still decent if you miss a familiar taste. Otherwise this place will reward curiosity. As far as I remember dishes are less spicy and less oily than in your typical BJ restaurant so, all good.

Not on the cheaper side.
