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.

In a city of meat-eaters, vegetarian restaurants are already playing catch up. So if you decide to open one up, your food has to be good enough to rival other restaurants. Kush is here to offer an alternative, healthy choice. Unfortunately they also think that alternative and healthy means bland and boring. You get exactly what you ask for. Cous cous is just cous cous and the spring rolls involve some leaves and carrots wrapped in rice paper. The food is tasteless and there's no depth to it. You can taste the lack of imagination.
Kush has to start learning how to cook. You can't call yourself a vegetarian restaurant just because you charge for putting leaves on a plate. The decor may be nice but I'm there for the food, and it's a joke. For the already limited choices that vegetarians have, Kush does them no favours. Save yourself the disappointment and cook at home. As for me, I'm taking myself down to the nearest dirty chinese.

The blunt truth is that aside from the drinks and smoothies, Kush is not offering anything that you can't already find in Shanghai with a better price and better quality.
However, my husband and I keep ordering through Sherpa's because it's vegetarian AND delivers--we've ordered maybe a dozen times now. I've only eaten at the restaurant once. The quality of the food is incredibly inconsistent. I seriously wonder if the cooks or management has ever tasted the food coming out of their own kitchen, because there is a big problem with quality control.
We've tried pretty much everything vegan on the menu except the pasta and the wraps (they refused to leave cheese out of them). The only thing that has not disappointed us is the soup. The curries are absolutely revolting: mushy, sloppy, overcooked, and either completely bland or tasting only of chili. My friends have all had similar experiences with the curry. They should send the cooks on a cooking course at vegetarian May Kaidee's in Bangkok if they're going to insist on serving Thai food. The noodle dishes are overly sweet and oily, but I guess some people might like that. The salads seem inventive, but never hit the mark--all over priced as well.
The burgers are bready and on a white bun (whole grain or gluten free would be a nice option), but they're pretty good, fill you up, and come with salad. So imagine my disappointment when we ordered last week and they arrived burnt on one side! I worked in restaurants for many years, and I can't understand why they would let not one, but two burnt burgers leave the kitchen. That's just unacceptable.
The soups are all right, but simple enough that you could make them at home for less money. One of my friends liked a falafel wrap, so maybe if you stick to wraps and salads, you'll be okay.
Try harder, Kush.

Over three meals I've had all the 3 burgers that they serve. They are all really tasty and show the amount of time, thought and care that went into the recipes! Well done. I'll be back for more and to try the other dishes on the menu.
