I've managed to maneuver well, even though I tend to reject a lot of Chinese places... They insult my intelligence by implying that if I don't see the meat, it is not there.
The India Palace is on Montgomery and Wyoming right across from the Vitamin Cottage.
Another good place is the Chinese Restaurant behind the Olive Garden on Copper and Juan Tabo. Ask for the owner when you go in, and explain to him that you are vegetarian. They keep very little vegetarian fare on the buffet, but if you explain that you're vegetarian to him, he will instruct the cooks not to use any animal broth in your dishes. If we get enough vegetarians going to this restaurant, they are quite likely to mark dishes on the buffet as vegetarian and offer more vegetarian fare. The owner's attitude towards veggies is quite positive!
