I lunched here today and found it a pretty interesting experience.
1stly at time of writing this isn't exclusively a weekday lunch time place.
As per what the previous reviewer remarked, the décor and set up of the café is very nice. There's a choice of a la carte or set menu (148 hkd for soup, salad and main with an option to pay extra for dessert. Payment is in advance). I went for the soup to start with that was delicious. A delicious bunch of flavours in there but by no means over powering nor unpleasant. I then had a salad which I thought was OK but should quantify by saying that I don't usually get too excited by salads. Last was a noodle dish where the noodles I believe the waitress said was made of strips of zucchini. It was excellent.
There was a minor hick up re service where the lady serving seemed to think I had already eaten my main dish while I was still waiting for it. Once she checked with me she apologised and it came along soon enough after that. This was a minor thing in the grand scheme of things and the waitress was very nice. This applies also to the other staff members there who I spoke with briefly.
There is also an organic shop.
All in all this was a very positive experience. The only regret is that while I haven't been to many raw food places (this was the 3rd I can think of off hand), they don't appear to be aimed at the budget market (I'm not in a position to comment on what the underlying costs in running an enterprise such as this). It's a shame though that the price is a barrier to opening this kind of food up to a wider audience.
Vegan friendly, Friendly to many other considerations
Price prohibitive to those on a budget
