Nice at first bite but can be overwhelming if eat too much

LingZhi Vegetarian Restaurant is the vegetarian arm under Tung Lok Group, serving gourmet non-meat fine dining cuisine. There are two outlets currently, one at Liat Towers and the other at Velocity at Novena Square - we chose the latter for lunch. I have been wanting to try a fine dining vegetarian meal for a long time, so I was glad to finally be able to get *Zachary to go with me.

One could choose to either take the buffet lunch or order a la carte - we chose the latter as well.

The first selected dish was the Golden Delight Soup (SGD$15.00) - basically shark's fin melon with lily bulbs, bird's nest and golden mushrooms in a clear broth. It was surprisingly tasty even without the presence of meat, having been infused with the stronger flavor of the mushrooms. The lily bulb added crunch to the soup, and the shark's fin melon looked exactly like shark's fin in its shredded form.

Curiosity piqued us to try the Vegetarian Satay (SGD$16.00) - 4 thick skewers of chestnut, mushrooms, green pepper and what seemed like fried flour or dried beancurd (taupok), all drenched in the dense coating of satay peanut sauce. It was a little spicy, but very delicious. The usuage of the fried flour / taupok as well as chestnuts gave the skewers a good bite as well.

Next, the Deep Fried Lotus Root Rolls (SGD$18.00) which had actually been named as "seafood rolls" or something on the a la carte menu, and that was the only reason I had ordered it (to try mock seafood). Turned out that it was all deep fried lotus rolls with a crispy exterior and sticky interior, stuffed with some vegetables. The taste was rather bland, and this dish was very filling.

Made a reservation more than 2 weeks in advance and was shocked that our reservation wasn't recorded in at all. Server at the entrance was rude and loud when sorting out the issues with us. At first offered us a table with a time limit of 1hour time limit and we rejected as we made a reservation in the first place and the timing was too short for a dinner for 7 pax. Next he located us to another table and commented sarcastically that we have no time limit and we are able to dine in as LONG as we want. Argh! 
The variety of food was little and the servings of the dishes were inconsistent too. My family only enjoyed the fried rice and we dislike the satay. Other than that we left unimpressed and disappointed given that Ling Zhi is under Tung Lok company. There are many better and economical vegetarian restaurant out there so we won't be returning to Ling Zhi anymore.

Promotion going on thus headed down for the spread. Trick is you have to be early to enjoy all the selections available. Rated the restaurant 3 stars, I still say it's good enough for the price.
