The Chinese and English menu has colour photos and introductions for major dishes. There are imitation meat dishes, but also many vegetable dishes as well.
The vegetarian fish in spicy and oily soup, sea cucumber, as well as braised pork chops are worth trying.
Assorted vegetables, eight slices with mashed peanut, spicy tea tree mushroom with celery, and potherb mustard with soy bean make good accompanying side dishes.
After eating, it is worth walking around the yards to look at the architecture. There is a 400-year-old ancient Japanese pagoda tree in the backyard, which is said to help people connect with their beloved ones.
A Buddhist exhibition room illustrating the theory of fate is at the back of the yards, as well as a small bookstore selling books related to Buddhism.
