This popular family-operated all you can eat buffet is far above and unlike other vegetarian restaurants or Asian buffets in that the food is high quality and non-greasy and not loaded with soy. The veggies are prepared in a tasty, interesting, healthy way and they will point out gluten-free dishes. The soup, salads and desserts are all very good. I... More

As always, the buffet is quite a treat. For someone like myself that can stash away 4 plates in a row, definitely a deal, too. Everything is fresh and kept immaculate. The flavors are excellent and the food typically light. Overall, if you like the taste of veggies, this is the place to go. No, it is not fancy, but... More

It is not a fancy place and it offers a veggie buffet - however, the different dishes were all excellent in taste - from the kale to the tofu, over the noodles and the sesame balls - all freshly made and delicious. Also, value for money is unbeatable: all you can eat for 12 USD. Service could be friendlier (one... More

We went to Costco accross the street and then came here for vegan lunch. We had General Tsos Veggie Chicken and Sweet & Sour Veggie Fish Sticks. Brown rice was good. Vegetables just the right crispiness. Good favor.

I've been going here for lunch once every few months for years (when I remember and am near Greenway Plaza). Love the cold tufu, pumpkin, and various Chinese greens. Very casual, quiet and tasty. Has gotten a bit more expensive over the years (almost $12 with tax now maybe). Food is very good but dishes have remained exactly the same... More

This place is a quaint little placw with the yummiest vegetarian food. As I have said on previous reviews, veggie meat substitutes can tend to be a little salty if you have sodium restrictions. Again that being said, they serve so much more. I have tried tbeir lunch buffett which is very popular. I have also tried their take on... More

The food choices were good, my husband however did not get the wow factor. The raw salad choices were OK, surprisingly they didn't have any organic foods. Customer service was pretty much what you'd expect in a buffet, it was good.

Tried take out and the buffet, and I prefer to order off the menu to get my favorites but the buffet has a lot of good options. I tried a lot of different types of food for the first time and it was refreshing to know that everything was vegan!

You can get this at any Asian restaurant. Is just no meat... I can pick that anywhere. Noting special. The fried cabbage/carrots were good.

You cannot beat the lunch buffet. All fresh and all vegan. Meat lovers would not miss a thing and it is nirvana for those of the vegetarian/vegan persuasion. Add to that a terrific, welcoming owner/staff and you have a great meal experience.
