Arrived at peak lunch hour on Christmas day. We had a reservation, so all was good. Under the extreme circumstances, we had some excellent service.

Also, being a plant-based family, the menu options were ideal. All around, a lovely experience. We knew MichaealAngelo back in the day. He would be proud that the tradition of high-quality cuisine has been maintained.

Wanyi Lee

The food was good, and the service was excellent! The staff was very accommodating especially given it was a birthday we were celebrating. I used the entertainer 1 for one as well, and it made it even more worth it.

LingZhi Restaurant serves buffet and a la carte menus in a Chinese style vegetarian fare in a high-end concept. Even though the buffet dishes are of high-quality, the a la carte menus are the standouts in this restaurant. If you are a fan of Chinese food and want to eat healthy at the same time, LingZhi is the only option in the country so far.

There is no other restaurant in Singapore that offers a vegetarian high tea buffet but LingZhi Restaurant. Spend a leisurely weekend afternoon with your vegetarian friends and enjoy the mouth-watering vegetarian Chinese food in this restaurant. The High tea buffet at this restaurant offers a Hong Kong-style dim sum, fried noodles, vegetable curry, salads, and rojak.

An excellent choice for vegetarian and vegan diets. Food is perfectly seasoned and prepared to bring out the flavors. I love all their money-head mushroom dishes. So good.

Marc Ha

Enjoyed lunch very much. We came for Tim sum but ended up getting tempted by the SLA carte menu. We had the clay pot bitter gourd, ee fu noodles with truffle and mushrooms, and Teochew crystal dumplings.

Every dish was tasty but had a very measured use of seasoning. I will be back to try the other dishes. And I read another review that other branches have a bigger range of items on the menu.

Desmond Wong

A pretty awesome place that serves vegetarian food. They have a huge variety of dim sums and also set lunch at reasonable prices. We order an executive lunch set for 2 pax and order another dish.

It was very filling and did not leave an oily after taste. We will be back again for such to try the other dishes.

Pramila Ghode

You can get a wide variety and delicious dumplings here, both steamed and fried; their other dishes are also quite good.

We ate at Pollen about a month or so ago and had a lovely meal. The servers were fantastic, so we left a high rating.

We accidentally left an umbrella at the front desk and returned to the restaurant about a week later to retrieve it.

Beautiful experience. Service, food quality, taste are superb! I don’t take dairy, and they managed to remove it and yet taste delicious. The decoration of the dish is very creative and colorful. Must visit!

I’m not a vegetarian, but I tried this place for dinner. Food was distinctively unique, wasn’t overly flavorful, and pleasant. Food plating was very presentable. Portions were just lovely, not too filling.

It had outside seating, which had a nice view, lighting, and ambiance. But it gets windy, so females take note and bring a hair tie.

Jai Nathani

Amazing staff service. Valentine’s day fine dining. The wife was feeling cold, and the staff handled her a lovely stole/shawl. The food was exquisite, and the service was perfect!
