1. Re: Vegetarian food in Suzhou

The only pure vegetarian restaurant I could find is to the right side of the West Garden Temple (about 1 or 2 km to the west of the old city), down a narrow road about 200 meters. There is a sign on the far right front side of the Temple. It has a diverse menu at reasonable prices, two for about 70 yuan. The food was as most Buddhist Temple food in China, well prepared with fresh ingredients. When you try to get back to your hotel, you must walk back near the Temple entrance to catch a Suzhou taxi.

I called the other places listed in guides and all they seemed to have phones disconnnected or not answering.

In Lonely Planet they list Yangyang Shuijiaoguan, which is actually on Shizi Street, as having veggie foods. Yes, they do, much like a US Chinese restaurant does. So if you want simple broccoli with garlic sauce, try there. I found it a great disappointment as the only veggie dumpling offering is a chive with egg. My vegetarian fried noodles, prepared by request spicy style, was good enough. I had anticipated much more in the way of indigenous Chinese fare.

The only vegetarian food I had in Suzhou Chinese restaurants was plates of broccoli, green beans, cabbage and scrambled egg. I was disappointed that they didn't seem to offer noodles.

In desperation I had a vegetarian pizza and salad at Pizza Hut. The service was superb as was the pizza.

Check this for you. The most close to Indian Cuisine is the following though it more like malaysian food with different curry. Ask for vege.

I m a vegetarian & just back from a 2 day stay in Suzhou.

You can try this place.

Indian at the Cross, upstairs of Southern Cross, Lindun Road/ Lindun Lu.

Sorry dont have the complete address. But Lindun Lu seems to be quite prominent & the taxi dropped us there without any issues.

There are quite a few restaurants and bars there, e.g Harry's Bar with a Jazzy neon signs visible from afar....
