An experience of vegan yum cha in the park
Unlike traditional Chinese restaurants for yum cha, Bodhi Restaurant and Bar is a vegan yum cha place surrounded by natural views. Nestled between the swimming pool and St Mary's Cathedral, I was impressed with this dining setting in a tranquil park-side location.

There's nothing better than enjoying food in an outdoor setting on a sunny day. Interestingly, red lanterns were hanging on the huge Moreton Bay fig trees, giving this place a touch of charm. Feeling the warmth from the beams of sunlight shining through the trees was a real good experience.

I am not a vegetarian but I have heard good comments about this restaurant. So, I decided to give it a go. The waiters bring around trays of different dim sum. You can pick the food if you like. The food is crafted mainly with tofu and soy and various ingredients which are organic or vegan by nature.
A variety of dim sum is served at the restaurant. I ordered a few dim sum dishes and their looks were not dissimilar to traditional dumplings. The taste was fresh and light, though the price is a bit premium. As this was a busy Saturday, staff weren't able to offer attentive service. However, I would say that they were friendly overall.
The dumpling includes ingredients of mushroom, corns, and carrot
