All vegetarian menu, so delicious even if you're a carnivore! The spring rolls, daikon cake, dumplings, bamboo rice, and almond milk are some personal faves! They must have the fastest service for a restaurant I've seen! It's one of the most consistent restaurants for quality and service.

Great choice of tea served in beautiful tea pots. Warm and cozy place. Food was very good, and menu offers meals that are quite original. Worth trying.

Restaurant is quite cozy and well appointed making it a perfect get together style of place. Service was quick and very friendly. Food was extraordinary. Served hot on clean china with spotless utensils. Wide selection of Tea's. Worth a second visit to try other dishes on my next visit is guaranteed.

After a busy week and some grocery shopping we decided to try our favorite restaurant in Charlottetown. We again realized the reason why we enjoy it so much. The people are friendly and helpful and the food is exceptional.

On a recent trip to Charlottetown, my traveling companions and I stopped for lunch at Splendid Essence. I had read many of the restaurant's previous reviews on this site and felt it was worth a try. We were NOT disappointed. The restaurant is cozy and funky and when we walked in we were immediately greeted with mouthwatering aromas which for us, signaled that we were in for a treat. Our server was amazing. She was able to answer all of our MANY questions about the menu and was kind enough to make some recommendations for us as well. The food was fresh and oh so tasty. Between three of us we ordered 5 different items and all were fabulous. If you are looking for fresh food full of taste and flavor at a great price, you can't go wrong with Splendid Essence - and you do not have to be vegetarian to enjoy this food!
