Reviews for Lion Dance Café

This is such a quaint and cool joint! A nice fusion of flavors from Malaysia and Singapore. We got some jackfruit nasi lemak and mee (noodles) to go. The owner-chef is from Singapore herself and her partner manages the desk. He was very obliging and helpful. Best part are all the many vegan options which is so rare for good SEAsian cuisine, so we really appreciate that. Keep that up! Gotta come back to try the laksa and other cool looking stuff.

Dear God. If you haven't eaten here yet, you are missing out. Definitely try the A.S.S. cookies. They are weird and surprisingly delicious. I'm not vegan or even vegetarian, and this is easily the best food I've had in years. Currently walk-up only, but it's worth the effort. The food was spicy, but not deadly, even for this white girl, and it's really nice to not have to worry about my husband's seafood allergy at a Chinese(ish) restaurant.

Come on a Friday/Sat/Sun b/c the menu options are more extensive. GREAT place for delicious laksa VEGAN FOOD: --laksa x 2: authentic, flavorful, tofu bites are an addition; satisfied my cravings for laksa since it's so hard to find a place in the Bay Area that cooks up laksa similar to the ones at hawker places in Singapore. At $16 a bowl (without tax), it is pricey for the smaller food portions than expected. Because of this, I recommend ordering another appetizer/side dish/ full review
