Always good food and good service. Their mixed veggies is always amazing. Today we enjoyed their liked mixed veggies with beep fried tofu and vegetable chow main. Their menu is always changing and you have about 8 or so different entries to chose from. It is a minimum if $20 per person but you won't be disappointed. It is hard to find good vegetarian food but they do it right do it is way worth it. My only wish is that they where open later as it is sometimes a challenge to go so early and I like my dinners a bit later but otherwise love this place. The service is also great and amazing enough they are volunteers. Afterword you can go pray if you like or enjoy a walk through their gardens. It is a beautiful temple and gardens!

I've driven by the temple plenty of times and curiosity finally got the best of me. We came to check it out and get a vegetarian meal at their restaurant Taste of Zen.
We walked into the restaurant and were seated by one of the staff (volunteers?) there. The menu was simple enough - a single sheet with 10 numbered menu items. The entrees were all $18, and there were some smaller items.
We planned to split one entree and try the water chestnut cake for dessert, so we ordered it. The woman taking our order seemed frustrated, pointed at the menu, but it wasn't clear what she wanted. I guess they don't get many anglophones here. She went to grab another man who explained that there's a minimum $18 spend each. I thought this a little excessive but we modified our order.
The food arrived and was just okay. Definitely not quality or quantity for the price. Similar taste and ambiance of a dim sum restaurant.

I'm sorry but this is not a proper Vegetarian restaurant per se but it's a place where one may try Vegetarian food as a devotee. No more 'by donation'. There are prices now but highly inflated for people who want to 'try eating Vegetarian'. I had a mixed veggie rice for $18! Same dish is probably half of that in normal restaurants. Note restaurant is run by volunteers. So I shouldn't day bad things about them but for vegans and vegetarians, there are better options even in your local food court.
