If you want to eat excellent vegetarian food, then you want to visit Lao Wai, they have found a style that is just wonderful, they cook food and serve love, and they do it with style!
we are usually 2 people, and we take in 3 different dishes, and we just can't stop eating, don't forget to have their thé in a pot, they will guide you in how to get it the best way possible for maximum taste. and do make reservations, hard to get table with out booking in advance.

Off the beaten track you'll fond this gem. They make the food when you order it, a la minute.
No prefab, no microwave just directly from the wook to your plate.
Be on time, it easily get crowded here, its a small place.
Great, tasty food! I recommend the Mapotofu. Or the Gong Bao. Mmmm.

This place is very small and from memory I think there is space for about 25 people. The menu is all vegan and there's a good range of different dishes. There's a tofu section, vegetable section and soya protein section so that's a good start.

The food tasted really good, rich and the portion was plentiful. I would say it should be cheaper though - dishes were around 160 to 200 sek which is roughly around £16 to £20. In England if you were to spend that at a restaurant you would expect amazing service and world class food.. The restaurant is small, like I've said, and tables are very close together. The atmosphere is quiet and the layout is very communal.

Our waitress seemed a bit unfriendly, she was pleasant but didn't engage with us. She also didn't come to take our plates away for aaages. When it came to asking for the bill and paying she was very nice though and asked how are meals were etc.

As a vegan it's a nice place to go to know you can have everything on the menu and since I was on holiday, also aware Stockholm is pricey, I didn't mind paying the money but if you are on a budget it's not somewhere you MUST go.

Much better than the vegetarian chinese buffet found all over the world. Great service and the food was above average, it did suffer a little from the overuse of soy/sweet and sour sauces as noted by others. Got in midweek without booking.

Serves 'only' gourmet Chinese vegetarian food. The owner-chef has chosen such a small place so he can prepare every dish individually - be sure to book! His passion for this food is tastable. Nice little wine list, and very reasonable prices.
