Vegetarian Lunch Oct 01, 2012
I am not a Vegetarian but today would like to trial something new. The restaurant simply decorated and have some articles and newspaper cutting posted on wall about vegetarian cuisine.They also have a area to sell some organic food.
I saw clear instructions for self-service to customers.
1. Please get a seat first.
2. Pick up a plate and queue up to select the food you want.
3. Weight and Paid at cashier.
The price charge at $18 per 100 g, but I don't realize how many food equal to 100 g and the mimimum order amount was $33.
I felt hungry at this lunch time. I just pick up the food that I want. The food served at self-service, I pick up some Steamed and Braised tofu dishes, Stir-fried broccoli with some vegetarian meat. Moreover, Potatoes with curry, Stir-fried long beans and Steamed eggplnt with faked scallop. I was queued and waited for paid at the cashier, but I was surprised that it charge me at $99. I don't think such dishes worth at this price, I would like to try other restaurant instead. I realized why others pick up at small portion when they queued.
After I paid, I got a seat and saw the next self-service counter served steamed rice, congee, soup and drinks. I got some rice and some soup. I try the dishes, the taste and quality was fresh and not too much MSG, some of the taste like to eat at my home. The soup was taste light and clear as well. I finally finished up all the dishes and rice, I have a good appetite today.
I could saw their customers collect their own plates and bowl at the end of their meal and send to dirty plates collection area. The staff will come and wipe up the table. I think this is a very good practice for a self-service restaurant, especially could even save the manpower.
It is a good try in this restaurant but I would like to control my appetite next time. Save the earth and save my wallet.

Fantastic vegetarian choices here Aug 17, 2012
I got to the restaurant at 1:30pm and there was still a queue for the buffet - it just goes to show how popular this place is.
the system works this way: You pick up a plate, then choose whatever food you want, and at the counter you weigh it and pay for it. Currently the prices are $18/100g.
The choices are amazing - celery/carrot, stir-fry kai lan, steamed tofu with spring onion, mushroom and radish wrapped with beancurd skin, soy patty, vegetable curry, carrots and mushroom, pickled sprouts and endamame, stewed eggplant, and a few other dishes which I cannot remember. Apparently this menu changes everyday depending on what is in season.
I had a pile of veggie on my plate - I got a little greedy - and it only amounted to $59. Right after you pay, there is another table where you can help yourself to unlimited brown rice, congee and veggie soup. The soup I had today was winter melon with beans and a whole lot of other spices - I could taste dried orange peel. It was hearty and obviously very nutritious!
The staff was friendly although English is definitely not spoken here.
I will certainly be back again - it is amazing that there is a vegetarian restaurant that has cheap and nutritious food for everyone to enjoy.

Yummy Jan 08, 2012
There as a good variety of food even though it was near closing time. The staff were really nice and explained that the rice, congee, soup and dessert is around the back. So you wouldn't leave hungry from this place. The food was good, not too salty, and the dessert (red bean soup) was not too sweet. The selection of vegetarian products for purchase is also good - fair trade chocolate, honey, nuts etc
I look forward to going back
