Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food, wonderful people and a stunning location. Relaxing oasis with interesting art and serene spaces. If you want somewhere good to eat which is also a good price, this is a great choice

What a lovely, peaceful place. We love the vegetarian food especially the coriander pancakes and the dumplings. The coffee is great too.

Very good, had the daily mixed special with coffee and cake to finish, nice shop and art gallery next door in the same building. Plenty on parking at the back of the building.

Not only great food and service but also a wonderful, relaxing venue. My meat-eating hubby was impressed, so much so that he's willing to come back and try other options. I take that as sign of a great place to eat. Their teas are really...lovely, service is amazing and food wonderful and well presented. Fast and friendly. Great place to eat, not too expensive either.More

Friendly staff and great food. It was my first visit and I will absolutely be back.I had the laksa noodle soup which had a tasty broth and lots of protein with imitation pork and tofu. The decor is beautiful and calming.

Have eaten here before and loved it. The atmosphere is friendly as are the staff. The food is well prepared and flavoured and arrives quickly from the kitchen. Very busy when we ate lunch there. Thanks

I’ve been here a couple times and each time the food and service were excellent. I recommend looking at the menu online to see pictures for all the dishes- however it does make it harder to choose as they all look so amazing! The soy...protein substitutes are cooked so well I almost doubted that they were real meat! The art gallery is a lovely peaceful place to wander after a hearty meal.More

A friend and I went to the temple first and the staff were very friendly and kind. I was not feeling to great, you know it was just one of them days where things were not going good and one thing after the other seemed...to be going wrong like dominoes. We ordered the bibimbap and Laksa. At first we thought the costs were a little expensive, but then after having the meals it was well worth the costs and the food was delicious. I especially liked the laksa. Next, we tried the ice mountain - you can see the sign at the counter. Wow! That was so yummy too and the portion size was great. Thoroughly recommend this place and will be back again. Thank youMore

We visited the cafe for lunch, ordered 2 dishes and a drink. The staff bought the 1st meal but the second came after 25 mins. I had to ask multiple people where the dish was, said it was coming. 4 families came after us and...finished and we were still waiting. Even the drink came in late, it was just a mango drink which needed to be poured and served. Not sure why they delayed only our order, but felt like it was because we’re the only Indians sitting here. I will not recommend this place even though the food is good.More

I have been here on a few different occasions and haven't left disappointed. The buddist temple and art gallery are beautiful, you can really take time to relax and unwind and then go through to the cafe, Wich is vegetarian and also cateres to vegans....A very nice tea selection and then the food. Their is cabinet food on display Wich is all very appertising or you can select from the menu, full of mouthwatering choices, on this visit I opted for the Tom yum fried rice, (vegan). Presented beautifully, plenty of it, full of flavour I just wish their had been more of the yummy protein that was on the top, kind of tasted like the Chinese roast pork you get in traditional fried rice but with a softer texture. Friendly and attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere, very clean you can look out on the garden while you enjoy your meal or just drink some tea, I fully recommend water drop cafe and look forward to exploring more of the menu here in the future, thank you to all the staff here that make it a great experience.More
