Lot's of variety on the menu, all sorts of hot pots and hot plates and more. The prices are quite reasonable. And their bubble teas are to kill for.

Great place, food was good, cheap too, will be going back. New decor and menu too. Go there all the time because it is close, nice staff and usually don't have to wait long for food and love the drinks an the dishes, especially the curry beefy hot pot and pretty much everything can be vegan.

Took the family for a meal here as our children are vegetarian. The food was delicious and there was so much variety to choose from. So nice when you are usually stuck with one or two choices as a vegetarian. Even my -very much a meat eater- husband was pleasantly surprised. Service was quick and friendly and atmosphere relaxed.

Love this place, we are a vegan couple who luckily live down the road from dream garden and go here almost on a weekly basis. Very accommodating, bubble teas are delicious and do a non dairy option which is usually hard to find! Meals are great, have found our favourites now being the curry beefy hot pot, ginger and basil... More

The few restaurants that served pure vegetarian meals without onions and garlic. It was a gem to us on the last night in NZ and we truly enjoyed the meal. Prices was cheap in comparison to the other meals we had at other places. Definitely must visit for vegetarians.

I looked at the 4 reviews on trip advisor and it seemed like a good place for 2 vegetarians to have a nice meal. So when we pulled up the outside it looked very dirty and not at all like a restaurant. As we got closer to the doors we could see inside and there was someone asleep on a... More

I just love this place, the food is simply delicious and affordable. The menu items have a lot of 'meaty' references but there is NO meat here, and they cater very easily for vegans. I love the salt and pepper nuggets and deep fried tofu. All portions are generous and allow for some take-home for tomorrow! The owners are Korean... More
