Fan Cai Xiang 梵菜香素食馆

We came here for a birthday dinner celebration - family, of course. This place is a very family-friendly restaurant. They also have an elevator installed for those who needs it to up to the upper floor.

We arrived on time but they gave us a table of 8 when we had asked for a table for 10 pax. It was impossible to squeeze everyone into the really small table so we had to move upstairs. They allocated one staff to take care of us when it was just us occupying the whole floor. No issues with signalling staff, but communicating with them may be a bit of an issue as they don't speak anything local really well.

I love the eggplant dish - it was meant to mask "fried fish". A layer of crispiness on top of the soft eggplant.

Some of the dishes are rather standard which are mostly available in other restaurants, eg. the vegetarian pot (zai bou), the "sei dai tin wong" consisting of 4 different vegetables, braised tofu.

Vegetarian char siew - Our first order was really good because they cooked it longer so the sides were very crispy. We added a second portion but it was soft and soggy, unfortunately not as great as our first order.

All of us found every dish to be very nice - even without meat. Each dish that was meant to mask a meat was done beautifully, very creative and it gives vegan a wide range of selections to pick from.

However, there was one dish that did not make it - the sweet and sour "fried fish". The "fish" was okay, but the sweet and sour sauce was just bland and too starchy. 

Likes: Great vegetarian selections, creative dishes
Dislikes: Service could be improved (the owners are not quite friendly towards customers), insisted a small table is good fit for 10 when we specifically asked for the biggest table at the Ground floor
