    Generally good. General Tso's chicken is worth it. Some of the food is bland.

    The veggie rib substitute is excellent. Also to avoid carb overload order a plate of vegetables from the bigger menu like the sautéed watercress.

    Late & the wrong order. When I called they said they are re-sending me the correct order, 40 min later i called them and they flat out lie and say that I wanted a refund and not the food.

    Really disappointed wanted to eat here but made us wait while tables were empty and then sat us in the back were staff was already prepping peas on the table while we are supposed to eat. Embarrassing

    What a gem - delicious food, affordable, elegant, and clean. Easily Top 3 Dim Sum in Chinatown. Strongly recommend the House Special Congee and Pan Fried Dumplings (although everything was superb)

    Tried a little of everything. The #bonelessroastpork looks, tastes, and smells the same as actual roast pork. Definitely try the #vegetarianmeat. You won't be disappointed.

    Best eat in Chinatown. Offer traditional dishes - if the waiter says they don't recommend a dish for you, heed their advice unless you're familiar with the cuisine. Delicious, friendly, affordable.

    Big menu of Chinese vegetarian food. Flavor is not bad but the only dish I would call delicious is the sautéed pea pod tips.

    Hands down best tofu you can get in the neighborhood. Get the Braised Soybean Skin (红烧豆包).

    In Main Street's smorgasbord of Chinese restaurants, this joint is unique, offering an entirely vegetarian menu, with meatless renditions of congee, steamed dumplings, & bean curd Sichuan-style. Read more

    Top of the line, and most recommended, is the "whole lobster" spinach torso, asparagus legs, and a tail composed of shredded tofu textured like lobster meat, though falling short of it in flavor. Read more

    2 of the smalls is more than enough for 1 person. Watercress dumplings are great, but ask for a dipping sauce too

    Looking to accommodate some vegetarians? Buddha Bodai serves up a tasty number of dishes, and does an excellent dim sum (pan fried turnip cake, BBQ "pork", and congee) as well.

    Chinese vegetarian kosher dim-sum. Only in NY. Very tasty. They did seat us with other people so be advised if you're a privacy freak. Fair amount of soy substitute too if you care. Highly recommended
