Respond to Review of Chi Lin Vegetarian
by JChan

Review: The restaurant is at the north end of the famous and beautiful Buddhist garden in Diamond Hill. A walk in the quiet garden before dinner calms the mind. Dishes at the restaurant are thoughtfully designed and prepared in Chinese vegetarian style. Food is tasty and innovative. The service is excellent and helpful. The place is bright (not much atmosphere,) clean, efficient with a large window toward the park under a waterfall. No liquor is served here, as usual, as in all Buddhist restaurants. There's a nice dark "beer" made from malt you could order. On one occasion I had a banquet of three large tables on the second floor of this restaurant and the chef designed a special menu for the celebration. This was the best vegan banquet feast I had anywhere in Hong Kong. Very well thought thru, elaborate and meticulously prepared. The cost came to about $400 per person. There's also a fabulous teahouse in the park that is very exclusive but the lowest price for an individual order of tea (the selections of which are superb) is more than HK$100. Yet you are invited to sit in a splendid room, with almost no other guests, surrounded by exquisite ceramic paintings and superb service. A few dim sum choices are available and they are exquisite and delicate and inexpensive. A Zen experience indeed. Updated June 3, 2014
