We would never have realised this is a vegetarian restaurant without trip advisor. Many of the reviews were off putting as they raved about the mock meat which we really dislike. But we did manage to put together a very good meal and it was...More

Great for vegetarians and vegans. No questions about whether something is vegetarian but maybe cooked in chicken broth. No animal fat or meat in any direction. I am not a vegetarian but enjoyed the meal. Husband is vegetarian and enjoyed it more. Creative uses of...More

We visited this restaurant with our daughter who is a committed vegetarian. She is working in China and experiences real difficulty in sourcing vegetarian options on a menu. Virtually all the dishes on offer were forms of "mock meat". The food was well presented and...More

The food was quite all right, the menu is nice, with acceptable English translations and lots of photos. We spent roughly RMB 60 per person. The staff looked a bit bored and were not overly helpful, but the food arrived pretty soon and was really...More

Food: 4/5. There were some creative and interesting dishes. Tasty and flavorful. Good presentation. Can't go wrong with the fake meat dishes. However, pass on the vegetable buns and dumplings, the fillings were bland. They should change to chive or cabbage filling instead. Service: 4/5....More

Lots of "fake meat" menu options. Food was good but not great. Traditional Chinese ambiance. Food was somewhat similar to other vege dishes at other restaurants.

Description
This is a great vegetarian Buddhist 'fake meat' place. You can get a large meal for $4 (Y30) a person. The menu is in clear English. Though the wait staff speaks little English, pointing to the menu works just fine.

Even my friends skeptical of all things tofu loved the place. The mushroom soup is amazing.

The restauranted is located one entertaining mile walk south of Tiananmen Square. Be sure to duck into some alleyways to your right and left along the way for an improv Hutong tour.
