Great for vegetarians as well as vegans, and meat eaters will be happy here also. Great variety of yum-o-licious mock meats and vegetables. Excellent variety of sauces.

Here's the protocol: the hostess seats you then you're greeted by your waitress. Place your drink order then you write your name on the little wooden stick at your table. Take the stick up to the food bar with you and grab a bowl. Go down the line adding rice, noodles, mock meats, veggies, nuts, sauces, whatever you like. At the end of the line, there is a stick for "food allergies" - add that stick to your bowl to have it grilled on the veg-only grill. Also, if you like roti bread, add the "roti bread" stick and they'll put one in your bowl. For some reason they do not have tofu on the main buffet, instead you put a "tofu stick" in your bowl and the chef will add the tofu. Put your wooden stick in the bowl so they know what table to deliver it to once it's grilled.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and were very impressed. The build-your-own makes it very easy to customize your meal, with tofu and I believe seitan to choose from for veggie protein. There are a ton of sauces to choose from and a big sign on the wall tells you which ones are vegetarian. You also get to put a color coded stick in your bowl which tells them to cook your meal in a separate bowl so as not to contaminate with meat. It's all you can eat, so you can make several dishes and try out different flavor combinations until you find your favorite. Our server was friendly as well, no complaints!
