D’Life Signature 疏品轩(Square 2) – Contemporary Vegetarian Restaurant

I have passed by D’life Signature at the basement of Square 2 but I always thought D’life Signature is a just a regular Western restaurant so I didn’t have much interest.  I recently learned from my colleague that D’life Signature is actually a vegetarian restaurant.
