    I'm not a fan of vegetarian food but Buddha Bodai changed my mind. Their General Tso Chicken tasted exactly like real chicken. But my favorite dish was the Jumbo Shrimp with Walnuts. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family members!

    Good YumTum

    Just loved it! I ate here because my brother is Kosher and I am a vegetarian. Several times the waiter steered us away from a dishes we wanted, so I just told him to order for us. I was not dissapointed. The best to me was the special assorted appetizer plate. Everything on it was great, particularly the bbq beef (strictly vegetarian though). Had the General Tsao's chicken too, which tasted fabulous. Eat, Mamala, eat.

    Great vegetarian chinese

    We've eaten at this restaurant 4 times in as many weeks. We've order something different each time, and always been impressed. As someone who keeps kosher, I appreciate that they have gone through the bother of getting Kosher supervision, but I think it also assures my vegetarian friends that the place is truly vegan. It may not be the world's fanciest place, but their is something very authentic about it - including the large Chinese families we have seen eating there on occasion. My children appreciated their attempts at Hebrew (todah raba, lihitraot). Also, the idea of visiting Chinatown and going to an authentic Chinese restaurant adds to the atmosphere. The food is just amazing and the portions are quite large. I heartily recommend this to anyone.

    Great food. best kosher chinese ever

    The food was amazing. I loved the fact that one doesn't feel like they are in a kosher restaurant. It's authentic Chinese food that happens to be kosher. They could have refilled the water glasses more often. But overall great place. I can't wait to go back! The steamed dumplings... so good!

    Great Food: That's the reason you eat out

    The Best Chinese food I've eaten in the US! Excellent, must go place if you live or are visiting the New York area.

    Total yum

    Four dollar lunch special includes brown rices and is totally delicious. The food isn't too heavy or greasy like most chinese. This is the only chinese in the city I'll eat. The orange tofu and the eggplant as well as the dumplings for dim sum are excellent choices. The string beans are perfect too. Go here for lunch during the week, when prices are $4 for a huge portion. Enough for 2...otherwise twice as expensive on the weekends.

    Veggie chinese at its best!

    Almost as good as the original in Flushing, this place has the most varied menu of any veggie eatery in Chinatown. The dim sum items are a great value, with sizable portions for two bucks/two-fifty (love the watercress dumplings and the taro custard). "Veggie meats" are all nice, aside from the fake shrimp, which is rubbery in just about every preparation, and the dishes that are non-tofu/protein oriented are amazing. Pea shoots, asparagus, etc, all cooked perfectly, and in different manners. Atmosphere nothing to write home about, but not hole-in-the-wall.
