Delicious vegan wraps - Edit

Amazing versatile decent sized wraps and burgers, perfect for take-away because of the lack of seating space. Definitely worth a visit when in Hong Kong.

Updated from previous review on 2018-02-19

Cons: Small space

great food, but no space - Edit

The food is really really good, and the portions big.
There is hardly any space to sit though. I also didn't like the vibe, it seemed very greenwashed

Only real vegan in Hong Kong - Edit

We tried their burgers and soup of the day. Everything was delicious, vegan and eco-friendly. Not cheap, but within the standards of Hong Kong Island. By far the best vegan place we found in our 10-day stay in the city.

Pros: All vegan, Eco friendly , Nice atmosphere

Cons: Expensive

Vegetarian heaven! - Edit

This is my favorite find for vegetarian food in Hong Kong. I love the vibe, the number of options, the environmentally-friendly packaging, and the chips (French fries) and BBQ sauce!

One of my favs in HK! - Edit

Mana is one of my favourite restaurants in Hong Kong. There are MANY vegan options available. It's not cheap, but the quality is worth it. The large salads are huge; enough for two meals, which justifies the price even more. Love this place!

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Pricey

One of the best cafes in HK - Edit

Love this place and its ethos! They are pretty much the most eco friendly cafe I've come across in HK - they have recycle bins for all the different types of rubbish, use eco friendly cutlery and napkins, and have a zero food waste policy, composting all organic matter. They also have a tap with running water so you can help yourself. I like the music and general atmosphere.

It's a casual place, with limited seating, but if by myself, I am usually able to get a seat on the stools or at front. There is also some seating at the back in a larger table and further back outside.

Most important - the food - it's healthy and tastes great. They have flatbreads (wholemeal or gluten free) made with zaatar (a Middle Eastern herb blend including thyme and sesame seeds). There are signature toppings or you can choose your own. I love their grilled tofu, avocado, cripsy tempeh, roasted veggies and hummus. If I am really hungry I get a full one, but the half can also be filling. There are a range of salads - you can choose which you want and a small box is usually enough for me. LOVE the Inca shake and raw vegan chocolate cake when I'm treating myself.

Most things are vegan although they do have eggs and halloumi, so just check if you are unsure. Seems like all desserts, soup, shakes and the flatbread itself are vegan. They have a new vegan burger made with mushrooms and tempeh which looks amazing that I can't wait to try.

Only cons are that it is a little pricy given the tiny space, and it gets really busy at lunchtimes so you can get stuck in a queue. They use buzzers to let you know once your order is ready.

Pros: Ethos - eco friendly, zero food waste, relaxed and positive atmosphere, healthy good food

Cons: bit expensive, busy during peak times, limited seating

very poor service - Edit

Very unfriendly staff and poor service .. I have had at Mana before and it used to be good but this trip I found the attitude of staff very rude and unpleasant. Not going anymore to Mana while I am in Hongkong.

Out of this world! - Edit

My favorite food spot in Hong Kong. Natural tones and materials give this place a real authentic vibe. Order a wrap and choose from a great selection of ingredients with a fresh juice to wash it down (I opt for carrot). Sit outside on the large table under the towers of Hong Kong and enjoy. Great food, ethos and a social hub for the likeminded.

Pros: Fresh tasty food, Ethos, Vibe and Location

Western vegan food in HK - Edit

I went to this place located in Central a few days back.

The food is quite good, with a good variety of wraps, hamburgers and desserts (not all of them are vegan). It is a bit expensive compared with more traditional restaurants which can be found not too far from Central.

It is a very good choice to eat some western veg*n food in Hong Kong in a very touristical location.

Pros: Tasty , Location

Cons: Expensive

Top 5 Restaurants for Eating Vegan/Gluten Free in HK - Edit

This is probably hands down the most popular vegan cafe in Hong Kong, at least from my observation. And it's among my my Top 5 Restaurants for Eating Vegan/Gluten-Free in Hong Kong. (Link in the end)

Mana serves extremely fresh and healthy food in their menu, from ready made salad, to gluten free flats (made from buckwheat I believe) to power smoothies, drinks, burgers, fries, and to the raw vegan desserts and cakes. Anything you can think of or crave in the fast food world, they have their healthy version. Their menu does not have a super wide variety of choices in each category, but the best part is you get to customize your salads and flats all you want, which a lot of other similar restaurants don't offer.


For example the salads: The way you order is you choose a size and you get to choose 4 or 5 bases from their ready made salads and add your additional toppings with extra costs. My favorite combo is the kale salad with lemon dressing and spinach salad with toppings of avocado, grilled portobello mushroom (my fave! :P), sprouts or rocket. They can jam pack their small container to the fullest and it can make a very satisfying meal! On the side note, their raw vegan gluten free coconut cake is to die for! Don't pass by if you happen to see it still being available on a busy night.




After you order and pay they actually give you a beep for when the food is ready so you know hen to come and pick up. That's why they are pretty efficient with a busy business. How cool is that!



My only complaint is that not all items they offer are vegan and sometime they don't make it explicit. Their spinach salad would have cheese in it so you need to be careful when ordering.

My ratings:

Flavor - ★★★★★

Environment - ★★★★★ (Filled with amazing health-conscious people like you!)

Price - ★★★★☆ (Around $100HKD for a healthy and satisfying meal.)

On the side note, one of the staff told me just the other day that they offer a 5% discount if you bring your own container.
Another way to get discount is to join their membership. $500 HKD for the membership card and there will be a $400 balance in your card. You get 5% discount forever. I don't know if that's a good deal.... But they do have member events as a benefit.
Location - ★★★★ (in the heart of central SOHO and very easy to find, )

Vegan/gluten-free options: ★★★★☆

Overall - ★★★★☆ (What's not to love?)

Recommendation: Salad & Vegan Raw Coconut Cake

Pros: Fresh, Tasty, Affordable

Cons: Cash

Best of Hong Kong - Edit

I don't normally write reviews, But I just had to write one for this one. The atmosphere is cool and the theme is well organized. Best of all, the food is out of this world. For their signature wrap, You can pick 4 fillings out of about 12. All of them are great. The best part is taking different combinations each time, making it feel different every time. We ate about 4 times from the place. Definitely worth the money.

Apart from the wrap, they have desserts and drinks. Which I feel sometimes is too expensive. But I don't mind spending the money even just to support them.

Pros: Wrap and different combinations

Cons: Desserts maybe on expensive side

tiniest/cutest @ HK - Edit

The tiniest and cutest place we visited in Hong Kong.
Popular with the locals and Hollywood celebrities alike (waited on line with one of the latter :-)).
Food is delicious. I had the best balanced balck-bean soup ever (usually killed by excess cumin, this one was amazing!).
Would love to have the chance to try more of their food.
The choice of building your own combination makes the tasks of exploring even more challenging :-)

Pros: location, tasty and multiple combination options, coziness

mana! fast slow food - Edit

hadn't been here in years. my previous visit was with my parents and i recall that my meat-eating father rather enjoyed his burger and fries for breakfast.

having not tried their flats before, i asked for a recommendation and was suggested the bliss (avocado, hummus, cucumber, spinach; hkd80). it was packed with greens, and pretty filling. i added a maya shake (hkd65), which exceeded my expectations (i was imagining watery coconut juice, but it turned out rich and delicious). staff were friendly, but were chatting among themselves and didn't make an effort to strike up a conversation until i asked them questions.

it was a very expensive breakfast, but the quiet solitude and opportunity for reading time at the back patio made up for it (i was subsequently joined by two other solo diners), until three finance people decided that it was the ideal place to rehearse their forthcoming talk.

although utensils are recyclable, i would have preferred if they had provided non-disposable ones for dine-in customers. i don't think it takes that much time to wash a fork and knife.

Pros: delicious, peaceful courtyard, conducive for solo diners

Cons: expensive, disposable (albeit recyclable) utensils

Great Atmosphere - Edit

The place offers burgers and wraps of which many can be made vegan upon request. The price is reasonably high. (Burger with french fries and salad costs 100HKD.) The restaurant is in a very good location and ideal for visiting during a lunch break at work. The interior is very stylish and it is made for a fairly young demographic. The restaurant also serves vegan cakes although they are also very pricey at 60HKD per slice.

Pros: great atmosphere, fast preparation of food, eco-friendly

Cons: few seats

Huge portions of truly delicious food - Edit

I had a burger, fries, and a large shake, all of which were incredibly filling and delicious. We ate in the semi-open-air seating area out back during a rain storm, which made it feel like we were eating in a clearing in a rainforest, which was awesome. If I lived in the city and could afford it, I would return regularly!

I often judge my meals on how satisfied I am afterwards, and this meal scored 100%, but at a higher price than any other meal I had in the city. I of course think that good food is worth the price, but it makes me uncomfortable to think that this food might not be accessible to locals other than Western expats.

Pros: extense menu, many juice and drink options, plant-filled seating area in back

Cons: price

Customisable and tasty - Edit

Great wraps, relatively fast service and fantastic for on-the-go food. Seating is limited so I wouldn't recommend Mana for social gatherings. Not toooo expensive.

Pros: Wraps/Salads/Snacks are tasty, On the go food, Vibes

Cons: A little pricey, Too cramped , Could expand menu
