I've been here a handful of times and I pretty much always order the White Bean Salad (RMB33) in a small size. It's full of my favorite things: white beans, black rice, feta cheese, tomato and some other stuff. It's good. Really good. Then I always get the Arabian Wrap, which is basically the same thing as the salad but add falafel and hummus (RMB33 for small size).I've never ordered anything else because why mess with perfection? Today I added a Mango Twilight juice to my order. When I got back to my office I realized they gave me some sort of lemon tea instead. Didn't matter. It was also excellent. The only that could make this place better is if they actually sold kush. Also, there are always a bunch of beautiful men and women eating here.

Was expecting some good tasty food after reading the reviews here. Was utterly disappointed. We ordered 4-5 dishes and none of them was even half decent. Please avoid.

I must have given Kush about 50 different chances to redeem themselves. I love the concept, love the menu, love the mission, but each and every time I go they fail to deliver. My first time there, the waiters completely neglected me for 20 minutes, and then when the food came a good 40 minutes later it wasn't what I ordered.

The second time I went (hoping that this restaurant had figured things out management wise) I was told that there were "absolutely no seats available." The place was completely empty, so when I enquired why they couldn't seat me in an empty restaurant (mind you this entire conversation was in mandarin so no confusion language-wise) they responded that reservations had been made for an hour and a half later. I told them I could finish within that time (which they could have asked me initially) and they showed me to a seat. Perplexed as to why they wouldn't be more eager to have a customer, I ordered the lentil burger, was served the tofu burger incorrectly, and then charged for the tofu burger which is more expensive. Not to mention that the burger bun looked and tasted like a pre-made roll bought at a local grocery mart, so I was quite happy to be charged that increased price.

Just when I thought I had had enough of Kush, a colleague decided to try delivery from Sherpas from Kush. I decided to tack on to the order and try the lemon chickpeas main course. It was delicious! Hallelujah! I really did enjoy the food and my faith was momentarily restored in the restaurant. I ordered again today and the order came with a container that was 1/3rd the volume of my order the previous day. Same price, 2/3rds less volume of food. Sherpas informed me that the staff at Kush said they serve the same amount every time, which, is strange because I had ordered the very same thing the day before and the container was filled to the top with food. I was sent another one for free but I imagine this is due to Sherpa's great customer service and not that of Kush's. Again, disappointed. I want to like Kush, I really do. The mission, vision and menu look incredible, but I've been let down one too many times to know better now. I hope they can get it together.

Ventured to Kush yesterday for the very first time. To cut to the Tofu: I will be back! Atmosphere is wagas-chic (if that is a term), bright friendly and functional with some visual remnants of the long gone 'aFuturePerfect'. Ordered a ME size Arabian wrap and the Nori Rolls as well as an Ultra Enzyme Drink (Papaya, ginger & lemon). Portions were well plated, arrived fast and were delicious. The one thing outstanding most though was the desrt i went for (i know, large lunch): Do..and I cannot stress that more..do order the Ecstasy Balls..which certainly are addictive and made of Cocoa, dates, almonds, blueberry sauce. These things alone are worth the trip there (or order them online). All in all not a cheap lunch ...but I felt utterly satisfied (and healthy too)

Ive eaten at Kush a few times before and just been kinda 'meh' about everything i've had. If i can make it better at home for half the price and twice the flavor i usually dont go back....but i did. I ordered the white bean salad 'for me' portion for 36rmb(their online menu prices are NOT correct) and it came out a somewhat decent size if not too small. the dish was as expected...meh...but, it tasted decent and i ate it. The description of the white bean salad was slightly different than what i actually received for dinner... The salad was supposed to come with rocket, it did....3 leaves. it was supposed to come with baby tomatoes....it did...1. it was supposed to come with green beans...it didn't...but i DID get thawed out peas. when did peas start passing for green bean? And lastly...it was supposed to come with cucumbers...i honestly cant even remember if they were included...that sums it up.

My friend ordered the black bean cakes with the yoghurt dipping sauce... the black bean balls actually had a nice flavor and stayed together perfectly despite the ridiculous amount of oil still on them from i guess deep frying?? moving on, how can you mess up a yoghurt sauce? oh thats right, use chinese yoghurt. way to ruin it. sweet yoghurt with cayenne pepper that honestly just made me think i was eating strawberry yoghurt.

Will i go back to kush? No.
Would i recommend it? no.
alternative choice? SPROUTWORKS.

Just went to the Kush located at the Kerry...and loved it. Food was fresh, flavorful, and healthy. Service outstanding. Really enjoyed the beetroot salad and the tea with fresh mint. Look forward to going often so I can try the entire menu. Everything looked healthy and delicious. What a great alternative lunch spot and prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend giving it a try.

Been to Kush several times recently as well as ordered through Sherpa's. Especially recommend the Arabian wrap, jungle salad, pasta salad and Mediterranean pasta.
It is a bit small, which some people may not like, but I find it friendly and cozy.
In terms of food quality and value for money I find Kush a much better alternative to my previous favorite vegetarian place (prefer not to mention explicitly), which has become outrageously expensive.
I hope to see more locations opening soon.
