I had lunch at King's Joy in January 2013. It is located just outside the Lama temple and the ambience inside the restaurant is great. I was told by the staff that the property originally was a big Chinese mansion, which was later converted into this restaurant. The original flooring has been maintained and so has the general architecture of the mansion. The food was great and is similar to Taiwanese vegetarian cuisine. Many items on the menu were unique and I hadn't seen them elsewhere in China. The restaurant serves regular vegetarian food and also Buddhist vegetarian food. The staff was knowledgeable and made some good recommendations. I thought the food was reasonably priced though certainly not cheap. (Our bill came up to RMB350/ person.) The restaurant only serves the high-end and rare teas, so they are expensive. (RMB 800 for a pot of black tea.) You can always skip the teas and choose wine or other drinks on their menu, if you prefer. Advance reservations are recommended.
