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
