We found this restaurant by recommendations on Tripadvisor. Even our guide , a resident of Guilin had never eaten there. All of us including our grandchildren thought that the food was one of the best we had in China so far on this vacation . It gets bust by 600pm so if you have a large group like we did(8)... More

We were with my vegetarian girl and other kids that likes meat... I think it is Vegan. There are names to all dishes only in Chinese so it is useless to us. Yet, we all found what to eat. The hits were noodles and rice but there are great fruits. Water is seldom... lots of sweet balls that we accidentally... More

Went to restaurant based on reviews. No English spoken but they were helpful enough. I got the feeling the food was very safe for travellers but did not really hit our tastebuds, but then maybe we were too far after lunch at 2pm to get the best selection. Would probably not go back.

Best vegan buffet in China! Hidden next to the temple complex. So tasty and enough choice with fruit, tea and other drinks to choose from. We came back twice without making a reservation.

Excellent vegetarian buffet with many options to choose from. Very tasty and value for money: about 35 Yuan per person. The buffet opens at 6pm. If you want to secure a seat, either be early or make a reservation.

This is probably the best value restaurant I have ever visited. The food is excellent, healthy, not too salty or oily. All vegan dishes, around 50 different ones. At only 38 yuan it is a steal. Also very clean and in a really nice environment, next to a buddhist temple. A must visit if in Guilin. Note that buffet dinner... More

The taxi driver took more than 45 minutes to find this place even if it in the centre of the city, we showed him address in CHINESE and he called the venue to get directions. What a surprise when we discovered it closes at 20:00 wich is very early also for Chinese standards. Hope this information will be useful (like:... More

Absolutely excellent. Started our day by going to the temple which is lovely. The restaurant is right next to the temple and the array of food is great. If my stay had been longer I would have lunched there every day for the sheer convenience of it.

It's always difficult to find a filling and affordable vegetarian meal in China, so I was definitely excited about trying out the dinner buffet at Nengren. For 26 yuan per person, one can access a huge and unique range of Chinese cuisine - all vegetarian and delicious! It was some of the best vegetarian food I have had and I... More

I am not a vegetarian but I am fond of trying different food in Guilin. Nengren Vegetarian Restaurant is operated by Nengren Temple which is the most famous Buddism Temple in Guilin. Lots of local Buddists come to this restaurant every 1st and 15th of lunar month for having a vegetarian food. I visited it sometimes for cleaning up my... More
