Best vegetarian restaurant

If you are a meat-eater, then you must go here to see what vegetarian food can be. Be early for the lunch buffet because it's very popular.

It has closed down due to loss of lease. We came quite a way across the city to eat here (and temple visit) but found it shuttered and a notice up in Chinese to that effect.

From our perspective, the food was OK; nice buffet, many dishes to choose: soups, tofu, cakes, cookies, salads, etc. Very crowded sometimes. Food price is good. Take a chance to visit it if you go to Guozijian, recommended for large groups or couples.

We went for lunch and it was a large buffet with many vegetarian dishes. At lunch it was very popular and we had to wait a moment to get a table. A nice assortment of foods with many tofu "meats." No complaints. My review might be higher if I wasn't a carnivore at heart. Great variety however for my husband,... More

We went for lunch and really enjoyed the buffet. There was an amazing variety of dishes with desert as well as mains. You would be hard-pressed if you couldn't find something you liked here. One tip, get there early. The food was not quite as hot as we would have liked it.

This largely vegetarian restaurant is located almost opposite the Confucius Temple. We stopped here for lunch after seeing the Lama and Confucius Temples. It is a large restaurant but was packed at lunchtime and we had about a ten minute wait for seats. The meal was buffet style and relatively inexpensive. There were a number of vegetable, salad, rice and... More

Overall I'm happy with my experience at this place. I usually try to avoid spending too much at restaurants and this place is a great value. The buffet offers mostly imitation meats made of wheat and soy, including beef, pork, chicken, fish, even recreating sushi sashimi and pepperoni pizza. There are some non "meat " veggie dishes as well, and... More

Cheap (¥68pp), cheerful, tasty, plenty of choice for vegans too. The evening buffet (after 5.30pm) is quieter than lunch. It is Buddhist so don't expect alcohol.

I really like meat, so I seldom eat in vegetarian restaurants, but this one, close to the Confucius temple in Beijing, seemed special when we passed it. And it is. You pay about 70 yuan in advance, and then a wonderful buffet is waiting for you. Choice is plentiful, with even some mock chicken and beef dishes. All sorts of... More

This is a huge buffet style restaurant near a big temple. There are a lot of choices. If you are vegetarian and worry in other restaurants what you might get, come here, as you can see it and all is vegan. This is a huge place in the middle of small Beijing Hutongs, you pay flat rate for buffet of... More
