First things first. The Restaurant has moved. it is now at 2/F, Omega Plaza, 32-34A, Dundas Street, Mongkok (not so far away from its previous location). The closest MTR exit is Exit A1 of Yau Ma Tei MTR Station, which is about a 5 minutes walk away.

as you walk off of Nathan Road along Dundas Street, the flashiness of Nathan Road soon goes and you are in a fairly downmarket area, but dont worry, its quite safe. Omega Plaza is a fairly modern building and although M Garden says it's on the 2/F, if you take the stairs it seems more like the restaurant is on the 4/F. It might be worthwhile taking the time to find the lift.

The restaurant itself is bright, noisy and boisterous and the menus are all in Cantonese. however if you do not have a Cantonese speaker with you, don't worry, just point at a dish that another table is having, try picking at random or possibly someone will help you (staff or customer), but it is all good, so whatever you do, you will have a superb meal at a very reasonable price.

They have mock meats (which have a colour, flavour and texture of the real thing) made from Tofu and lots of other typical Cantonese dishes, vegetarian style. Unlike some Chinese vegetarian restaurants we were pleased to see that the dishes were not oily. We enjoyed the vegetarian hot and sour soup

This is not a fine dining restaurant. There are no table cloths here and I am not sure if they sell Western style wine, but its not a spit and sawdust place either. Get a gang together, minimum of 2, 6-8 is great and be adventurous. You won't regret it! We had dim sum (Yum Cha) on a Saturday lunch time and for 7 adults the bill was HK$630 (USD81, GBP52) which we thought was excellent value. "We" was two westerners, 1 chinese and 4 adult Eurasian children, (born and brought up in Hong Kong) whilst the oldies have all lived in Hong kong for over 30 years, so we are not tourists.

Veggie food for meat eaters. Little miracles performed with denatured tofu, but I don't see the point myself ...

I recently went to m garden in October when I was visiting HK for a few days because I heard it was a delicious vegetarian restaurant. It's located in a shopping center and when we went there for lunch is was relatively empty. The staff was friendly but i was not into the food and their mock meat interpretations. The price was average. I would recommend if you really like mock meats.

Amazing, delicious Vegetarian food. It looks and tastes like fish, chicken, beef, but it's not. We had whole 'fish' with a wonderful sauce. The Golden Tofu was one of the best tofu dishes we've had. Extensive menu. My husband loves a steak now and again, but he loved this food. We went there 3 times as it was so good and convenient as well. At the end of the meal, they offer a small bowl of complimentary dessert. Very good service. Not expensive. It was packed with locals, each time we went. We were the only Western people there. Originally recommended by Jackal in Club L Langham Plaza.
