Graceful Vegetarian

Posted by Staff / Listed on January 2, 2009 / review policy

Graceful VegetarianAny enthusiast knows that dim sum is by nature the delicate yet total celebration of meat. It can therefore be drastically limiting when accommodating vegetarians. Not here! The Graceful Vegetarian roster doesn't punish non-meat eaters and offers the best vegetarian dim sum. With mock meat substitutions, one can enjoy the flavours of, say, barbeque pork buns. An added plus, everything is also MSG-free, yay! Special time is half price before 10:30am.

I heard this one is really good, since friend of mine is vegetarian and he always go to these restaurant, which a bit pricey, but better than the ones located Midand Av., and south of Steeles Av. E., Scarborough.

The restaurant has a bad service. I don't know what there trying to do but they rip you off. You ask them to introduce you some of the dishes and they circle. Once they circled the dishes that are recommended, you get to choose whatever you want, after you choose what you want, they bring the food that you ordered but they even bring out the ones that were introduced and they say you can't cancel it out. What a bad service

Amazing vegetarian dim sum - the best I've ever had, and I've had a LOT!!! Definitely worth repeat visits.

This is one of my favorite vegetarian restaurants. I have been many, many times in the past and the service has always been great. One guy speaks particularly good English and he is almost always there - I sometimes need to call him over to confirm my allergy issues, but have never had any issues with the wonderful food or service once confirmed. Enjoy the Dim Sum! You won't be disappointed.

Robert obviously has some sort of personal agenda. I have been going to the place for years and it keeps getting better and better. Service is wonderful with personal attention to your needs. No one ever pushes dishes on you and they wouldn't dream of charging you for something brought in error.

Some of the best dim sum in the GTA, vegetarian or not. There are cheaper dim sum dives but the prices are in line with the quality received. My special requests are always accommodated and service is above and beyond. There are lots of dishes on the menu for me even though I avoid fried food and fake meat. Try the stuffed tofu skin and any of the steamed veggie dumplings. And the hot and sour soup is to die for. The decoration is pleasant but not fancy. Wait staff is happy, helpful and always on their game. I have been eating there for years and will continue to do so.

I agree with Robert the service is not great. They do rip you off and when dishes come in error they don't canceal you have to pay regardless.

Mike shut up we all do not have the same experience. Don't speak on my behalf.

You and Robert are liars. Big time liars. 1st. Where in Hades did Mike speak on your behalf? Point it out. 2nd. A restaurant relies heavily on reputation. Food and service more but reputation is huge. With that said, for a restaurant to charge a customer for a mistake would ruin their reputation and therefore the restaurant. So you two need to lie about something else. Nobody who is familiar with the restaurant business would believe you in the slightest. I tell my service staff all the time that if a customer honestly did not enjoy their meal to inform a manager who will make sure that customer are not charged for it. We're not even a high priced fancy place.
