“Best Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

The food was the best Chinese we've ever had. Its a bit lacking in atmosphere.

“Exquisite vegan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

The food here is amazing. You can order a dish called chicken and onions and it is 100% plant-based. The "chicken" is absolutely delicious! You can order summer rolls, and swear that there is beef inside. If you're a vegan, and you sometimes miss the meat mouthfeel and flavor, this restaurant is for you. It's an uber healthy version of PF Chang's, but has much more variety and is a fraction of the price. It's tough to make a mistake when ordering. Throw a dart at the menu ... everything is great.

“Excellent food, but not enough veggies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I have been going to Quan Yin since it opened, and it has been consistently good over the years. Like "Loving Hut Restaurant" It is run by disciples of Ching Hai and there is literature in the restaurant about her teachings, but they are not pressed on the diner.

A lot of dishes use soy and wheat gluten to produce meat-like dishes, which is a bit off-putting to a vegan at first, but they are delicious. My only complaint is that there are not enough dishes with a lot of vegetables. Many of the "meat and fish" dishes come with a gravy and no vegetables, requiring a separate vegetable dish to be ordered.

“A must to visit when I'm in Houston.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011 via mobile

This is my favorite vegetarian resturant in the world. Everything on the menu is vegan. The delicious things they can do with meat substitutes makes even my carnivore husband happy. Go. You will be so glad you did.
