First Review by JohnnySensible

Convenient for when you need to catch the train - Edit

I was very happy to know that there's a vegetarian restaurant so close to the train station where I could grab some simple food to eat before traveling, but I was a bit disappointed by the quality of food that they offered. I ordered a set meal with three dishes, rice and soup, but the dishes were very greasy (didn't taste bad but the excessive oil made it too heavy for my body).

The staff was super friendly even though our communication wasn't very smooth.

Pros: friendly staff, the fact that it's next to the train station

Cons: greasy food

Convenient to Harbour Plaza Metropolis Hotel, Kowloon - Edit

The food mall in which this venue is located is attached to the Harbour Plaza Metropolis Hotel and so is very convenient for guests. Although the hotel has some vegetarian items in its sumptuous meal offerings they are not cheap. This cafe has cheap meals with large servings. However the food was a little bland to my taste. There was a set menu with a choice of three vegetable dishes, rice and soup. One of the choices was an egg dish but everything else was vegan. There are mock meats, so the menu does not seem vegan at first glance. Note it does not open until 9.30am! Over all though this makes a convenient place to eat for a vegan in this hotel.

Pros: Cheap food, Conveniently located for Harbour Plaza Metropolis , Almost exclusively vegan

Cons: Food was a little bland, OPENS AT 9.30AM, Serves one egg dish.

"Happy Veggie" - Edit

We followed the directions given by other members and found "Happy Veggie" which we think this place is now called. The people behind the counter were very friendly and my family all enjoyed a tasty lunch here. I had the soup + three dish special. My husband had a delicious spicy "pork" fried rice. One of my kids had udon noodles and the other a "beef" dish with noodles. Very satisfying and inexpensive.

Vegetarian Hut, Hong Kong - Edit

One of the dishes is an egg foo young type dish. The kitchen guy brings it the egg dish. To move it from the cooking tray to the serving tray he uses the tongs from the adjacent vegetable dish. He next puts the same tongs back in the vegetable dish. Thus the vegetable dish gets cross contaminated with egg cells.

This has been pointed out to them numerous times in Cantonese. They just don't get it.

I'd rate this place lower if I could.

Cons: No vegan awareness, Veg dishes cross contaminated with egg

worth a visit if you're in hung hom - Edit

i had some time to kill between events in kowloon and hong kong island, so decided to try this out.

it may be a little confusing to get there if it's your first visit. although the food court is listed as being on the 8th floor, my impression was that it was on the 1st floor (ie one floor above the ground floor). if you're heading from the direction of hung hom mtr exit b2, cross the roads through the outdoor bus terminus, go up the outdoor escalator leading to metropolis mall, then down again when you're in the mall. walk past health food stores health aims and o'farm, then go up another escalator when you see "friends" restaurant. the food court is on the right-hand side.

it's a spacious setting with floor-to-ceiling windows and lots of seats even around 6 pm on a saturday. staff from vegetarian hut were friendly and i went with their hkd37 set meal of soup, rice and three dishes. i chose long bean, zucchini and eggplant from what was on display, some of which included egg and gluten. besides the point-and-choose option, there are also other items on the menu, with the most budget-friendly being hkd30 noodles.

the food looked and tasted good, save that the eggplant was, as always, a little oily and salty (i haven't yet found any non-oily/salty yet delicious chinese eggplant dish yet). i will come back if i'm ever in the area.

Pros: good value, spacious setting

Cons: might be hard to locate for first-timers

Good fast food - Edit

There is a menu now, but most people are just getting rice with vegetables. Since the staff spoke no english we had to order something from the menu.

Topk us a while to figure out that 'beef' and 'chicken' are also vegetarian.

Pros: inexpensive and good

Cons: little english if the staff

Fast and Cheap - Edit

Staff is very friendly and their English has definitely improved over the years. Food (Chinese style only)is good and very inexpensive. Cuisine at places like Kung Tak Lam is certainly better, but also quite a bot more expensive. Vegetarian Hut is great for a fast and cheap meal!

Pros: good value, healthy cuisine, friendly staff

Canteen style food for your train ride into China - Edit

Vegetarian Hut is in the "Food Court" area of the Mall on the 8th floor - the daily customers are workers in the Metropolis Mall / Office Tower. To find it from Hung Hom Station take the outside escalator which is to the right of the "Cross Harbour Taxi Rank" - as you enter the Mall it is the 7th floor - go up on the first escalator that you see to the 8th floor - the Food Court is at the back of the floor. No menu - HK$ 25 (US$ 3)for a plate of rice with any 3 of the 12+ vegetable preps & a bowl of soup - HK$ 1 extra for a take away container - usually just one of the prep's contains eggs. A very simple place - no frills at all - it is Cantonese food so expect to see some oil! The owner speaks a little English. I opt for the disposable bamboo chopsticks - pre-used wooden chopsticks scare me. In my experience it is a safe place to eat. It looks shabby but the staff / cooks are conscientious. Very convenient if you are taking a train into China as there is NO veg*n food on those trains. From 12.30 to 14.00 expect a 20 person line / 10 minute wait.
