Kung Tak Lam - WTC, Hong Kong

A top drawer dining experience there for me. Very good food, dishes containing egg are clearly marked on the menu, no issues with service and pretty good 10th floor view of Hong Kong Harbour.

There's certainly cheaper eats to be had in HK for those who want it but I didn't feel the prices were extortion.

Pros: Vegan friendly

Nice but bright

Had a great dinner here with friends - very interesting food.
Unfortunately it was incredibly busy and the noise that everyone made combined with the very bright lights made it less relaxing then I would have liked. ie. perhaps not a place for a romantic dinner!

Consistent quality

I'd eaten several times at their TST location before coming here for the first time. Both of them offer harbor views, but the one in TST seemed more spacious, tables less cramped. Food was just as good, service was a little better. Don't be surprised if there's just a few diners there when you visit, apparently they get really busy only on those typical dates (like the 1st and 15th in each Chinese lunar month) when many buddhists go veg.

Unusually a large restaurant, always full with local residents. Very unusual food, mock meats but that seems to be a buddhist thing. Most veggie restaurants we have been to in Asia seems to be a place to eat and go. This is more like an evening out. Wine is expensive

Pros: An evening out, Nice restaurant, Good food
Cons: Not that cheap

We have been here (in the WTC location) on 11/7/2009. The place is easy to find and has a good view on the HK Harbour. Staff is friendly and helpful and there is a lot of variety on the menu (both regular Chinese veg dishes as well as Dim-Sum).
It's not one of the cheaper restaurants: the bill for soup, 2 dishes, rice and a small desert (for 2) was about HKD 300.

Pros: Food, Staff
Cons: Pricy

This is my first experience with restaurant style vegan Chinese food and I loved it. I took all my friends each week for seven weeks in a row. The english speaking waiters are a plus. The serving of food can be slow on some of the occasions of gone, but they staff are great to point out new items and describe any item. You MUST try the sweet and sour pork and the stuffed sesame pockets. Also, the mountain mushrooms and spicy mushrooms are fab! The best part is that the food is not greasy and the place is clean. MMM...Yummy!

Pros: Waitstaff, Cleanliness, FOOD
Cons: Air-con, Delayed Meals, No Delivery

Well - I have eaten the perhaps 5 times this year & each meal has been enjoyable - it is run purely as a business by non-veggies & serves well cooked / fairly well presented dishes - very convenient if you are hungry & in Causeway Bay - if you are looking for a really nice restaurant the branch at 1 Peking Rd, Kowloon has pretty much the same menu / same prices in a far nicer setting. Dishes containing eggs clearly shown. Often full in the early evenings - best to book if you have a group of people.

Pros: Clean, Spacious, Varied menu
Cons: Often very busy, Often too noisy for my, liking - birthday parties

Mildly disappointing...

I tend to agree with Isabelle's review below. There's nothing "wrong' with this place, and the setting and atmosphere had us excited when we went in. Four dishes later, we were less excited and less wealthy. The food is certainly satisfactory, but our chicken dish was very poor, and the others - while better - hardly generated any excitement. A mediocre experience start to finish.

Pros: clean, attractive setting
Cons: average food
