walked into this restaurant and opted for all cart section upstairs. Recommend choosing buffet downstairs, as it was a better deal We were the only non Chonese patrons, which was a good sign to me. A large menu with some interesting new items, all delicious

Expected it to be a lot better, but just OK... noodles were good and with the pepper were quite tasty and a little bit spicy, so well worth trying... however, the dim sum and spring rolls were pretty bland/tasteless... We would not return, but veggie options in Kowloon are very limited, so if you gotta have veggie, may be worth... More

One of the few buffet style vegetarian eatery in Hong Kong. The food is average but very reasonably prices. Those looking for good value with reasonable quality of vegetarian should try this place.

My wife and I visited the Light Vegetarian Restaurant 7 years ago and dined upstairs, having the à la carte menu. This time we decided to try the the set price $HK120pp Buffet Dinner, we were not disappointed. All I can say about the food is that it was delicious and there was more than anyone could want to eat.... More

I'm surprised there aren't more reviews on TripAdvisor for this restaurant. Maybe that's a good thing, as it remains off the beaten track. I regularly travel to Hong Kong and I always make it a point to have at least a meal at Light Vegetarian. While the buffet is excellent, I always enjoy ordering from their menu. No doubt you...

We arrived early after a long flight and the vegetable dumplings and spring rolls are fantastic, we followed up with the noodles in pepper sauce. Highly recommend this resturant for high quality vegetarian.

They had some really good veggie dishes. But some were a little cold. We did the buffet which I though was great because you can try a lot of different dishes.

We were encouraged to go to the Light vegetarian restaurant after reading reviews in Tripadvisor. We are vegetarian-vegan when possible so are familiar with and fond of vegan food. The restaurant is located near the busy intersection of Jordan Road and Nathan Road, and was a short walk from our hotel. Upon our arrival we were asked if we wanted... More

First, you may walk by this place a couple of times until you realize the big sign above that says Light Vegetarian Restaurant which is outside the restaurant (or at least I did). As soon as I walked in, it reminded me of many of the Dim Sum places in NY's Chinatown. I settled for the buffet option as an... More

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
