We tried 4 to 5 different Buddhist Vegetarian restaurants during our visit to Shanghai, and I have to admit this is by far the most classy, clean, elegant and has tasty food. Dishes were reasonably priced. Menu has pictures, chinese and English name of dishes. The hot and sour soup was served with a small stove so the soup is always boiling hot. Very nice. All 4 dishes we ordered wer delicious. They even serve you free tea here. I noticed most of the other places you have to purchase your tea. This is my first choice to anybody wanting to try Vegetarian Buddhist food. BTW in terms of location we went to the other location close to Nanjing Road (258 Fengxian Lu). Very pleasant experience.

Tucked away near Citic Square, shanghai, Ju Jube Tree vegetarian restaurant is a perfect culinary experience for anyone who likes to really taste their food. Even though it is 100% vegetarian, don't let that put you off. These guys cook a wide variety of sumptuous dishes based on modern Chinese cuisine. Each dish in the menu is very well presented with a photo so non-chinese speakers have a reasonable idea of what they are ordering.

Well my review is for the jujube tree in west nanjing road. The location is basic simple and nice. Very cosy area with people chatting around and people working there always with a smile. I am very fussy on food and it is kind of very difficult to get vegie food in shanghai. Well pure vegie as far as i am concern. When i discover this awesome restaurant i was simply amazed. You have a variety of food, cold, hot, soups and a wide variety of chinese tea. Surely it is a must to try the Buddhist way of food. Miam miam. You will also find a lot of foreigners who eat there.
