A good choice for vegetarian

I went to this restaurant to try as recommended by a friend. The place is nice, facing a great harbor view. Overall food taste is good, meeting our expectations. We love the dim sum choices, really good. The price is quite high for vegetable dishes but we were quite satisfied though.

We loved the food, they reserved us a table with a magnificent view over the Harbour. The restaurant decor is basic and simple, the food is delicious but a little overpriced for what we had, worth a visit and good for us vegans. We may go back before the end of the trip. Service was outstanding, there are literally four... More

I've visited Kung Tak Lam with a native Cantonese speaker. We asked for a conversation with the manager re menu content. The outcome was pretty worrying. There's various dishes on the menu marked with an egg symbol. That is supposed to denote dishes that contain egg. On asking management if the mock meat contained egg, we were subsequently told that... More

This is my all time favourite vegetarian restaurant in Kowloon, Hong Kong. I love to entertain my friends here as the food is good and most tables will have a view of the beautiful Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. This place is always full and a reservation is recommended. This is a Shanghai vegetarian restaurant, i would highly recommend... More

Hard to find on 7th floor new town plaza shatin, this little gem of a restaurant provides tasty and well priced vegetarian food. Soe food is presented to look like its flesh equivalent but many dishes are unique and appealing.

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!
