I know it is a nice garden in HK and it is relatively new and young. But it lacks direction and control in building it's own character and soul. They can take a lesson from the established gardens in Japan. It gave an impression of trying too hard and placing too many items in the limited space. Visitors can't access many features in the garden like the arched bridge, pagoda in the lake, some paths etc.A great garden should be more accessable for visitors. But don't take it as negatives, it is still worth your trouble to find time and effort to visit this garden. The vegetarian restaurant in the garden is actually very good but you just have to order your own dishes but not the set lunch menu. We pay over HK$300 for this excellent lunch for 2 persons, the set lunch menu is about HK$100 per person. Do try it and you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!
