4 out of 5 stars I have only tried the Dim Sum offerings during the early afternoon. I really like the steamed vegie dumplings. Spinach and Fung Sin dumplings are my favourite. I have asked for the chinese brocoli but find it too oily for my tastes, so last time I requested it steamed only. Steamed dumplings get 4 stars from me. carlos

3.5 out of 5 stars Enjoyed #61 the (mostly) tofu and some veggie pork as well as the veggie "duck" (bean curd sheets) with spinach. Food was tasty, decent portions, prompt service. Seemed slightly expensive for Chinese food (entrees were $9 each plus $1.75 for a bowl of brown rice), but I would return as I enjoyed the food and the picture menu is wonderful. They also gave us a complimentary black bean dessert. tammy

4 out of 5 stars Friendly service. Clean and welcoming space. Moderate sized portions and huge menu that's heavy on the fake meats. Looking forward to returning and trying out more options. chris

3.5 out of 5 stars Food is okay, almost 200 item menu. Good addition to the very few vegan options in the area. On par with Garden Fresh and GVL. eric

3 out of 5 stars I have eaten there 3-4 times with mixed results. They are all vegetarian, but they do use milk and egg in some dishes. Those dishes are clearly marked and the staff is willing to make anything egg-free. For me, the food is good, but nothing special. It is nice to go here for a change, but both Garden Fresh and Great Vegi Land are much better. VegBausk
