“Great Vegetarian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is an excellent restaurant if you don't eat meat or if you are just looking for a quick and healthy option. I have eaten here many times, mostly for lunches, usually off the buffet and it always surprises me how much I enjoy their food.

Try the faux duck and the chile eggplant, this was a great restaurant! We did not eat off the buffet but you can order off menu.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

The best "Szechuan Beef" I've had in years, fake or not. Even your meaty friends will like it.

Don't be put off by the uninspiring decor. This is the real thing!

“My favourite restaurant in Victoria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

This place may not look like much, but they have great vegetarian food. I am a vegetarian and I appreciate it. The service was very good too - staff was friendly and helpful. The price was reasonable - same as what I would have paid back home in the GTA area. Will definitely return next time!

“Another great place to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2011

Great kitchen here. Not a fancy place at all, but the food is delicious and the prices are good. The eggplant is fantastic. The mo shu is also excellent.
