We were taken to lunch at Lohas Veg Fooding by a recently converted vegetarian friend. Although she gave the restaurant high marks, we weren't sure what to expect with vegetarian Chinese cuisine.
What we found was an extraordinary restaurant that just happens to serve vegetarian fare. Everything about Lohas was impressive. The restaurant is located in a set of converted Hutong buildings. It is quietly elegant and very comfortable - with great natural light, good spacing between tables, and warm, natural tones throughout.
The menu was extensive, and, to us, rather unfamiliar. Our friend ordered for the table and we were not disappointed. Every item served was beautifully presented, obviously prepared from high quality ingredients, and delicious. Emphasis on delicious. We were simply amazed by the flavors, textures, and mouth feel of food prepared in an all-veg kitchen.
Service quality was also wonderful. The staff was warm, friendly, and efficient. They were never intrusive, but always seemed to be at hand when we had a question or request. At the end of our meal, we were escorted to the parking lot by one of our servers.
Overall, Lohas was a wonderful dining experience. Very highly recommended.
