Having read some of the reviews posted previously I decided to give this a try. It's expensive but worth a go if you want veggie food on the fancier end of the scale. There are some dishes to be had for around 40, but most are more pricy. I'd expect to pay around 50+ per head on average if you want to try a variety of dishes. There fresh orange juice was the best I've had in Chengdu so far..
Service: great, friendly and polite without being annoying.
Selection: good but not outstanding or original
Taste: Pretty good, although the dishes I tried were a little oily. The green Chow Miein noodles were excellent, a nice find.
Decor: bland but nothing offensively bad
Location: pretty easy to find if you check first on Google Maps. It's on top of another restaurant in a little cluster.

I used to go here regularly but the last two or three times I've been I was really disappointed in the quality of the food. It just seems the chef is not taking care and some of the dishes were so sloppily put together I didn't really want to eat them even. It's too bad because of all the vegetarian restaurants in Chengdu this one has by far the best location for me.

I really like this place. I'm not a veggie, but the food here is a refreshing change from most of the restaurants in Chengdu. Has nice big pictures for every dish I think, and also shows the spice-level of every dish. In warmer weather, the balcony outside is a really nice place to sit. I think you can also smoke there, though the inside is non smoking. The decor inside is tacky as hell - it's very clean but also very, very 'old ladyish', as another review mentions. Kind of like the Ke Hua branch of Peter's, but cheaper looking. Service is really excellent - attentive and polite in a way that comes across as very genuine. Would expect a bill of at least 40 a head. Not a fan of their non-alcoholic beer - it's full flavoured but has a strange sourness, and costs nearly 20 kuai per bottle.

Pretty tasty homestyle veggie food. No meat, no eggs, no smoking, no alcohol policy just like at Vegetarian Lifestyle, whom they seem to be imitating. Cozy old-lady style interior, kind of like your grandma's place. Really nice sweet and sour "pork" and some good wraps and the sizzling crispy rice pork dish also good. Expect to spend 20 to 40 per head.
