I used to eat at this restaurant quite often. In fact, despite its minimal setting, I have brought in 12 members of my family at a time. My sisters and I loved the vegan options. I have brought several friends to this location and all have loved the food. Service is not that great when they run out of something on the menu. Instead of stating they are out of it, they do their own substitution which is quite annoying. Also, my sister got an insect in her soup once and I also found something floating around. The combinations of all these things have made us stop going to this restaurant. We have also noticed that the portions have decreased which would be ok except the prices have gone up. If you are looking for a healthy way of eating Quan Yin (or Pure Vegetarian Joy as they are also known) is the place to go. You just have to make sure you are assertive and that they give you what you want instead of what they have available. Make sure they provide you with a choice. They seem to follow a woman that is Supreme Master. They have free books and play videos of their faith. For a person like myself with a faith in the Father God, Son Jesus and Holy Spirt- this would not bother you. In general they are not pushy about their faith. If you are a first timer then you will receive excellent service. But if you are a regular, just keep on your toes. The owner still recognizes me and wonders why I have not come in as frequently as I use to. I maybe go there once a year and have been going there for at least 7 years now. I think the owner may know but the last time I told her is I do not work in Worcester anymore but the truth is I rather not deal with the hassle.

Amazing vegan restaurant. Tons of mock-meat dishes. You won't be able to tell the difference. It's really cheap too (~$5.00)

A little tiny, but the service is fast. There are also videos about the Supreme Master Ching Hai. Who can beat that?
