Had dinner with my family and was very much satisfied with the food and service. Only feedback is that this place doesn't have in house restroom and customer has to down one floor to a common restroom.

Pure pure Chinese Thai options. Rare to find such restaurants that doesn't even use egg or fish/meat flavour sauce. Delicious dishes made 100% pure vegetarian. Sad Such a great offering lacks the required service staff. Saturday night crowd for a 100 cover restaurant & only 10 waiters 😳😳. Needs improvement. Not baby friendly as they don't even have baby chairs... More

Not many know that an exclusive vegetarian Chinese Cuisine restaurant exists in Chennai. They have a lengthy list of vegetarian dishes to explore unlike many other Chinese restaurants which have a limited vegetarian menu. I would say a not be be missed restaurant for those vegetarians who love Chinese cuisine.

The Gobi Manchurian dry we ordered came like a oily bhaji/pakoda batter coating - no inkling of soy sauce or deep fry! (Rs 200) for that! For the price... More
