“Best thing I did in HK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Went for Sunday lunch here with two ex pat friends whileI was visiting for the weekend. Combined taste and tourism in perfect proportion. The decor is beautiful, the selection of teas extensive, and the dim sum (all vegetarian) delicious. Most come in portions of 2 so if your group's bigger you'll need to share or double order.
This would be my top recommendation for anyone visiting Hong Kong.

“Dim Sum and Blossom Tea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A great vegetarian dim sum choice. Add a blossom tea and watch the flower open up in front of you. Very helpful staff too who helped me choose the right pu'er tea for me to bring home.

“Best vegetarian dim sum and traditional tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Wonderful vegetarian dim sum and Chinese tea served the traditional way. The best vegetarian dim sum in Hong Kong, we tried nearly all of them. They have a huge selection of teas, we tried an aged (and very expensive!) Pu'er tea which was far too strong tasting for us and then a light green tea which went very well with the dim sum. Definitely recommend this place for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians, very quaint setting in Hong Kong park.

“Love, Love, Love This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Situated inside Hong Kong Park and next door to the Museum of Tea Ware (which you should also see), this tea house is built in the tradition of the Chinese tea houses of early last century. Waitresses make tea in the traditional Chinese way at your table. The restaurants serves very good vegetarian food. Get a bunch of small dishes and have a great time.

“Wonderful tea and vegetarian dim sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is one of the few places that specializes in vegetarian dim sum which are very good quality. The teas are also very good. If you order the regular tea (i.e. not the blooming teas), it is served in a modified gung-fu style table-side which is a real treat. Because of the location, the prices are a bit high but the ambiance is relaxing and elegant. A great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
