Opening Times:
Tue-Sun 5pm-midnight
 
Number of Vegan dishes: 25+
Price: £3.50-£4.50 per dish
Our Comments: The Veggie-World section of the menu has 25 dishes including a good selection of veggie beef, chicken and pork and beancurd options. All the veggie meats are suitable for vegans. There are also other suitable dishes including veggie chicken curry and veggie chicken fried rice. We are unsure if the satay sauce is suitable for vegans. There is a sit in only vegetarian set dinner for two people or more at £8.50 per person. Explain that you are vegan and don't eat egg as usual in Chinese restaurants. Dishes that include egg can be made vegan friendly by omitting it. Home delivery available within a 2 mile radius with a £1 charge.
On a massive note of caution, please be aware there has been more than one occasion when vegans have been given meat rather than the ordered vegan substitute. Refunds were given but it would appear they do not pay much attention to
vegan customers’ requirements. If you do feel confident in ordering from here, check your food before you leave.
