Amazing Vegeterian buffet - Edit

This is heaven in earth. Yummy options, lots of options. They have lunch and dinner prices and it’s totally worth it.
Salads, veggies, main dish, rice, teas, desserts. The restaurant is very clean and you are given a plate that you have to reuse for every serving. So no waste.

Bustling community style Chinese buffet - Edit

This place is a bit like a canteen with long tables/ shared seating and industrial decor (exposed pipes overhead).

Upon entering, you pay for the buffet (cash only) and then help yourself. There is a wide range of different Chinese dishes, and some salads and other items at the front. I've liked the food on all occasions.

It is similar to Innoveggie down the road, but a more casual setting and perhaps a bit cheaper. Pretty busy all times I've visited.

I've also visited in a larger group to try their amazing seasonal hot pot - the flavours of the spicy soup base are so good and they are very generous with the vegetables. They included mushrooms, yam, kombu, lotus root, mini noodles tied together, watercress, handmade dumplings! Need to order that in advance.

Pros: amazing hot pot ordered in advance , good value, wide range

Cons: cash only, busy

Good vegan buffet - Edit

I went to Ahimsa Buffet today with 3 friends. The 4 of us were there for 2 hours, and enjoyed the food. Some of the selections in the buffet were excellent! It was very crowded at 2pm, but we got a table for 4 easily enough.

Pros: good vegan buffet

Great value no mock meats - Edit

This is one of my favourite vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong!

The place is often busy with locals. It is set out buffet style so you can take as much or as little of what you would like.
The food is quite traditional no-frills style (reminiscent of home cooking), with no mock meats used. To be fair, I don't mind mock meats, but it is great to have vegetarian dishes that are not trying to imitate meat dishes! Veggies have great flavour in and of themselves! There is usually a spread of entree type dishes and some traditional desserts, plus rice, congee and soup available (and the mains, of course)

There is a lunch session and a dinner session, it pays to get there at least 30 mins before the end of the session so you get some time to eat. I find the patrons and staff here quite down to earth and friendly. Sharing tables is expected. The front of house is sparsely staffed so it's all self serve and you put your dirty dishes into buckets after.

(I was surprised it has only 3 stars on happy cow - I suspect this is probably because the cooking is quite traditional (not really westernised) thus does not suit everyone's tastes - plus it's a much more community type feel - not a fancy a la carte experience)

Pros: Buffet Style - can try everything , Great value, Great friendly atmosphere

Cons: Can be quite crowded - sometimes there is a wait, If you like mock meats, there is none here

Ahimsa Buffet - Hong Kong - Edit

The manager tells me most of the stuff they have here is vegan. If you like to fill up big then you can do so at this place (there's a clue in the name).

Pros: Vegan friendly, Quite big choice

Cons: All vegan is always better

Large spread but nothing stood out. CAHS ONLY. - Edit

Just had dinner here. It was a pretty big spread of buffet, including soup, rice, noodles, hot dishes, cold dishes, various dim sum items, etc. Food was heavily traditional Cantonese. If you're unfamiliar, you'll probably have no clue what half the stuff is because nothing is labeled. Dairy/egg is, albeit in Chinese. Tonight all but three were vegan, so that was good.

Despite the variety, the food was nothing to write home about. The place also lacked character and felt more like a school cafeteria than a restaurant. A little décor wouldn't hurt. Now, my biggest gripe—they accept cash only. Seriously? In HK in this day and age?

Pros: big spread, mostly vegan

Cons: so-so food, lack of character, cash only

great value for money with large choice - Edit

Have been disappointed by my last visit; though there is a good choice of food, I did really liked what I ate. Too much oil; not very well cooked. Adding to that the busy/noisy environment, I will not go back to this place.

lively and friendly - Edit

I got here late and was rewarded with a half price buffet. Lots of vegetable dishes, mix and match dessert, lovely teas. Quite noisy and exciting vibe.

Decent food, good price and VERY RUDE STAFF - Edit

This is a chinese buffet resto. The variety of the food is good and the lunch price is super reasonable. The place is busy and the clientele mostly have ZERO manners and are gross to eat around. The staff is incredibly rude. They yell at you and roll their eyes when you ask them a question or, they pretend they do not speak English if you ask them a question. There are MUCH better vegetarian places in HK!

ahimsa buffet - Edit

my friends have not been too keen on trying this new vegetarian buffet due to its time restrictions and their perception that it can get crowded and noisy. i finally got round to trying it on my own yesterday.

i went slightly after noon on a saturday, when it was still not too packed. officially, diners are told that they're restricted to 1 hour for lunch and 1.5 hours for dinner, though how this is enforced i have no idea. as i was alone, i was asked to share a table for four with someone else, and we were later joined by another solo diner.

setting is somewhat industrial chic, with high ceilings, concrete walls and hanging lamps. food trays are placed on tables supported by metal pipes, and blue plastic bread(?) trays are part of the decor.

there were 20-odd metal trays of mainly warm food (including radish cake, pastries, tofu, a good variety of veg, fried rice, noodles, "kwai tiu", red bean cake). there were also some cold appetisers (tofu, eggplant) and staples such as porridge, rice, soup, tea, hot lemon water and plain water. trays were constantly being replenished to keep up with demand.

while nothing stood out in particular, and some dishes were not to my taste (eg the radish cake was a bit hard and the eggplant with pickled veg a tad salty), on the whole it made for a pleasant and varied meal. i enjoyed the simple chinese-style soup and porridge, lightly salted and mixed with bits of tomato and "tau fu pok" (tofu chunks). trays were not labelled, but, from what i remember, there didn't seem to have been mock meats or anything conspicuously "eggy" in the spread.

the crowd started to stream in during my stay there, which necessitated some playing of musical chairs; a couple was asked if they would move and share a table with another couple to make way for a group of four. however, thanks to its comparably large space and high ceilings, it never felt noisy or claustrophobic at any time.

what i found happily surprising was the number of primary-school aged boys and girls accompanying their parents and grandparents - there's probably a school or enrichment centre nearby. that said, the boy next to me didn't seem to have any veggies on his plate!

at hkd58 for lunch, it's a great deal especially if you're a big eater.

Pros: decent spread, pleasant, relative spacious environment, accepts payment by octopus

Cons: time restriction
