I returned there with some American friends. Unless you make reservations, they seat you around tables for eight in a large dining area. You pay first, then go up to the buffet and begin to browse. They have a very large selection of vegetarians dishes to suit different tastes (including some that are a little spicy, so be warned (usually with a red sauce). On the right, there is Japanese vegetarian food, including faux sushi. They have a sea weed cone which is a favorite. They make some things to request. The rear of the buffet area contains baozi, dumplings, and you can order a hot pot with your choice of ingredients. There is a lot of salad ingredients, and usually at least 3 soups. Make sure you leave room for desserts! They have some lovely mousses, I had blueberry, someone else had mango. For drinks, there are very soft drinks, juices and coffee as well as tea. And if this isn't enough, you can order from the menu! You are likely to see monks from the temple dining there, as well as people from all over the world. They used to have a special tea class, you should enquire at the desk. There is usually some staff who speak a little English.
