I was very impressed to see quite a few dishes on the menu with a symbol meaning "Can Be Prepared Vegetarian", but some of the symbols seemed to be next to dishes that couldn't possibly be veg, and there were no symbols next to seemingly naturally veg dishes. I ended up ordering the Laksa Noodle Soup which the American waiter told me confidently was vegan. Veggie dumplings were lovely and the Asian hostess explained that the lack of "Can Be Prepared Vegetarian" labels by some of the dishes was due to lots of menu reprints instead of actual presence of meat. The soup, which came in a *huge* bowl, was very flavorful and had a spiciness that built up. I had the chocolate pie with fruits for desert. It was clearly marked vegan, as was the dark chocolate pudding. However, the pie came out topped with something that looked suspiciously like whipped cream. My omnivorous dining partner scraped it off, remarking that it might be something else, since it tasted a bit odd for whipped cream. The pie and fruit were very tasty, though.

Overall, a really tasty meal, and I'll definitely be back to try the vegan corn cakes and vegan yam cakes. I just wish they would fix their menu. Vegans will need to check with the wait person to ascertain the exact ingredients in any given dish.
