Shoukangyong Vegetarian Restaurant has been the most inventive and reputable vegetarian restaurant in Hangzhou. Its location on Wushan Square has become a much-beloved haven for those who walk the middle path. The restaurant's location to West Lake & the He Feng Jie Walking Street is very convenient. Its strict adherence to Buddhist precepts means you’ll find no meat, eggs, or MSG on the menu. Smoking and alcohol are also prohibited. The interior in the restaurant is clean and simple. Minimally adorned, white-washed, walls prop up a wood-beamed ceiling over stone floors creating an ambience that’s appropriately austere. This decorative understatement helps to highlight this restaurant’s real draw.
It also has a brand new location at the Dadou Road Cultural Area, right next to Xiangji Temple. For a Buddhist, you couldn’t desire a more convenient location.
