New Vegan Restaurant in Worcester - Buddha Hut

I went to the grand opening of Buddha Hut in Worcester yesterday. I have been going to Quan Yin for years, so when I heard they were opening up another location I knew I had to go. While there isn't much parking in front of the restaurant, there are a few parking lots right down the street. There is also more street parking up June St. Walking in, the restaurant is beautiful. There are many more tables than at Quan Yin, so it is much more accommodating for larger parties. There are more waitresses, and an adorable little girl who walks around handing out menus and books. The waitress we had was extremely nice and seemed genuinely happy that we chose to dine there.

Few items cost more than $8, except for Peking Duck(half) and Seafood Delight. Appetizers range from $2.50 for a single item to $6.95 for assorted appetizers . I highly recommend the Crab Rangoon ($3.95) and Steamed or Fried Dumplings ($4.95). Also on the menu are Soups, Salads, Noodle Dishes, Rice Specials and Combination Vegetables. There are veggie, tofu, "chicken", "beef", "duck", and "seafood" dishes. Whatever it is you are craving, they are sure to have something for you.

If you live in or around Worcester, please support this all vegan restaurant. Also, don't forget to keep going to Quan Yin!

That little girl is adorable! She insisted on wiping the chairs before my mother and I sat down. The food is also delicious, especially their soups. Not too sure what I think of the whole "supreme master" thing though :p.

Aww! I haven't seen her the past few times I've been there.

I don't mind the Supreme Master. I've been going to Quan Yin for over 7 years now, so it doesn't phase me.

Was so glad to see Quan Yin doing well enough to expand - and to a great location (the former Struck Cafe). After going to the other side of the city to go to QY, I'm glad to have the same great food & great prices closer to home.

Menu seems a little smaller than QY tho - would like to see more of the QY soups there.

I've been going to QY for 10+ years now, and I've always been afraid of seeing a closed sign in front - they must be doing a lot better than I've given them credit for!
