Vegan Southeast Asian cuisine, lots of realistic tofu or gluten "meat."

This restaurant serves largely Vietnamese food, with good straight vegetable dishes and a wide selection of "meat" dishes -- all "meat" is made of bean curd or wheat gluten. All food is vegan (except optional milk for coffee), but meat-eaters can be fooled.

Large sit-down restaurant on the second floor.

The extensive menu includes an array of faux meat dishes, plus delicious soups, moo-shi, hot pot specialties, Japanese sushi, Thai curry and coconut dishes, and vermicelli bowls. Lunch specials served daily.

I thought Buddha's Delight was great, but my boyfriend thought it was mediocre. I got a "shrimp" curry dish that was fantastic, with the veggie shrimps being almost scarily realistic. He got a tofu-broccoli dish that was pretty standard. We shared the wontons and agreed they were great. The soup we got with our meals was also outstanding. The service was not memorable but not terrible, either. This place definitely deserves a visit if you're in Boston.

Update: There is no more buffet.

The food here is delicious! This place is 100% vegetarian with a huge menu! Fake chicken, duck, lamb, beef, they've got all the faux meats! Lunch specials are excellent and are served with soup of the day, fried vegetable roll and choice of white rice or fried rice. I love this place! A must visit for any Vegetarian or Vegan visiting Boston.
