Fantastic view!

We walked in without reservations and got to eat dinner with a fantastic view of the harbor at sunset! The food was pretty good, especially considering it was vegetarian, and the prices were lower than I would have expected with such great real estate.

The location of this restaurant has a great view of the harbor. The food was ok- all three of us enjoyed our dishes but it was nothing spectacular or too notable. Maybe it's a cultural thing but they charged us for peanuts and three pots of tea which we didn't ask for so the meal became much more expensive than... More

We were taken here by an Indian friend based out of Hong Kong for Buddhist vegetarian cuisine. We had ordered Spring Rolls, baked Rice chops, veg noodles and some other dishes. Preparations were good, service is not very courteous and bordering to indifferent. Could manage to finish meal with Curry Sauce as taste was way to bland for our liking.... More

Very good food and good service, somehow you don't feel like you are eating vegetables at all! Ordered a sour and spicy soup which was good, ordered a vegetable bowl and some other dishes which were tasty as well. Great service and will come again!

Quite a good spread of Chinese style vegetarian food - which to us was a welcome in HK. The location of the restaurant was good - a nice view and good decor. The service was good - I would have preferred if the staff hovered less around the tables as I found that to be intrusive or it was a... More

I recommend this restaurant to those who are Veggie. They got nice veggie food, and special drinks as well as GOOD service.(I hv to specially point this out as now in HK we don't normally walk out a restaurant with a smile) Sorry I can't tell what I ate as I was not the one to order food. But every... More

We were recommended this vegetarian restaurant by our hotel concierge and we weren't disappointed. It is located in the heart of kowloon on the 7th floor of a new building with a lovely view over the bay. The food was top end vegetarian at a fair price. One point to note is that you must get there early as they... More

If you like Chinese food, and you are vegetarian, then this is the place to come. We have dined here for lunch and dinner, and the food is superb. Varied and delicious. Highly recommended.

Food was nice enough, nothing amazing but a good veggie option in this part of town. Feels a bit like a posh canteen though, the lights are turned up far too bright, so at night you can't even see the amazing harbour view! The service is fine but a few too many staff hovering over. Would probably go again though.

Too quick service like dim sum restaurant with me-too atmosfhere. Quality of food average, but franckly quite disappointing as level of disches pretty low and without flavour, care or taste. Bill far too expensive. Think about and make another choice.
