Copious portions of excellent vegan food. Good choice of dim sum. But it's strict Chinese vegetarian - no alcohol

I was going through a vegetarian stage, when last in HK. Veggo eats are hard to find, I did have to opt for Pizza Hut one too many times. So, this is welcomed change. Enjoy.

I was looking for a restaurant for someone new to Hong Kong, who wanted to try local food, but one of the other diners in the party was a strict vegetarian. I assumed trying to please both would be rather challenging as so much food in Hong Kong has 'hidden' meat, eg some minced pork here and there or perhaps... More

One of the rare chinese vegeterian place in HK which can provide food without use of onion/garlic. I have been to some other vegan places but this is too good.

This took us a little time to find but we are so glad we made the effort. It is on the third floor in the block and as you would expect it is air conditioned, you could sit crossed legged or at a conventional table, we went for the later. As we sat down we were given tofu nibbles that... More

Chinese cuisine has many vegetable dishes, but they usually are served its minced pork or shrimp or cooked in an animal oil, and though they are quite tasty, as one becomes a little more selective about what they put in their body it is nice to know there can be a style of Chinese cuisine that is purely vegetarian.

By far the most outstanding Chinese food ever eaten had . Went twice in 3 days and plan to go once more before leaving hong kong. The shredded turnip dish is simply marvellous. Wish there were more restaurants like this in other arts of the world. Being religious vegetarian I could order without hesitation and without enquiring details of the... More

Huge choice in the items on the menu, almost too much to make a decision All the food I had was excellent, tasted fresh looked great and nicely presented I went as single traveller and it seems more geared up for family groups but they quickly found me a table. Service was great By HK standards the pricing is average.... More

Ate lunch here in June 2013 on a Monday, no reservation required. Best: Sichuan stir fried tofu and Noodles in soup w sesame sauce and peanut. Just ok: pineapple fried rice. Different but give it a try: Fujian style rice.

Had dim sum lunch and the best fried turnip puff. Service was prompt and friendly and place is cozy. It's a little hard to find for a tourist - go towards the peak tram and on garden road, head up the hill, past the american consulate and Catholic church. Once u see a basketball court, u know u have arrived... More
