So so good - Edit

Amazing way to still experience dim sum as a vegetarian / vegan! The food was absolutely incredible and good value for money too. The sichuan wontons were the stuff dreams are made of.

Pros: Just incredible food

Cons: Location is a bit out of the way - but worth the j

Dim sum heaven - Edit

Absolutely delicious veggie dim sum. Love how they’re mostly stuffed with veggies rather than processed mock meat and you can tell they’re made with high quality ingredients. Paid about $400 for two people which was the most expensive meal we had in HK but also the best. Save some room for dessert and get the deep fried sesame lotus peanut balls.

incredible - Edit

It's a bit out of the way and probably the most expensive place I ate at in Hong Kong, but it's definitely worth it. We tried the fried lotus seeds, kung pao mushrooms, baked aubergine and mapo tofu - all absolutely beautiful. It came to about HK$200 each (with rice and tea) but we did order more than we needed!

Delicious dim sum - Edit

This place serves absolutely beautiful dim sum! Not too expensive, cost about 230 hkd for lots of food for 2 people. To find it you need to go into the coda plaza then up the lift to the 3rd floor :)

Pros: delicious dim sum , hot and sour noodle soup

Un imprescindible en hong kong - Edit

Nos encantó este sitio, su comida está buenisima y a un precio asequible, está un poco escondido pero merece la pena buscarlo. Os recomiendo la tempura de shimejis, impresionantes, aunque todo lo demás también estaba buenisimo.

would literally come to Hong Kong just for this - Edit

Everything here is of such high quality- so rare to find delicious vegan Chinese food that doesn’t taste totally MSG loaded, so this is such a find! Whilst having some really authentic, original Chinese food (and as a Chinese person I know what’s what) it also has vegan takes on classics like sweet and sour pork, which taste so meat like it’s worrying! Honestly, even if you’re staying on Kowloon side or it’s totally inconvenient, I would recommend that you make the trip here- I really think it’s worth it

Pros: yum yum food

Nice vegan dim sum! - Edit

We ended up visiting twice as the first time we went for Dim Sum but hadn't realised there was a separate menu and so ordered from the main menu! The first time we had some nice Buddhist stews, and the second time the Dim Sum. The food was really good, the head waiter was very friendly if not a bit pushy. Was always busy with locals, which we thought was a good sign, as we have never had Dim Sum before.

Pros: Great vegan dim sum

Cons: Not clear at first how to order Dim Sum

Best dimsum (vegan or not) that I've ever tasted.

Favourite veggie Chinese place to date - Edit

This restaurant is my favourite veggie Chinese restaurant (and I've been to a lot now)! I bring almost all my guests here and everyone loves the food. Even brought my non-vegetarian team from work who enjoyed it and suggested to come back of their own accord.

Have tried many dishes. It's a big menu. Love their:
- Tofu: Ma Po tofu, organic tofu in home sauce, Sichaun style tofu with cashew nuts (it's spicy and delicious);
- Various kinds of noodles: their vermicelli is my favourite, not so fond of the Lohan fried noodles but that is my preference;
- mixed mushroom in black truffle sauce with rice crackers (intense flavour and great to share);
- AMAZING dim sum which is served at lunch: so many kinds! delicious vegan char siu bao buns, vegan siu mai, vegan cheong fun, mixed mushroom dumplings, green vegetable dumplings....
I can go on... their vegetable dishes are great too, and they have various kinds of vegan jellies and other vegan desserts (I'm usually full by then so haven't tried that many of those, but the ones I have were good).

As people have mentioned, it is a 20 minute walk uphill from Central or Admiralty, so I usually take a short taxi (minimum fare) from Admiralty to reach (or you can walk from midlevels, but would not recommend for tourists as easy to get lost with the flyovers). Don't go into Fusion (the supermarket). I enter from the entrance on Macdonnell Road and then take the lift up to 3/F.

It's a Buddhist restaurant - no alcohol, no onions/garlic, no MSG. It has nice, smart but simple, decor. There are some tables on the right side which are a bit more cosy (Japanese style with floor dug out). Best to reserve a table as it can get full.

Pros: DELICIOUS, Friendly service

Cons: Bit of a hike from MTR station, No alcohol, but good selection of tea

Attentive staff, blend your own sauces and book of. veggie love menu - Edit

The menu is a book of veggie love with descriptions of the organic ingredients and hydroponic vegetables. Prices are a bit upscale and so is the quality of the food. There's also a more economic dim sum menu on each table.
A table by the entry has a vast sampling of ingredients to blend your own sauce.
If you go with 2 or more people you can order the large and popular hot soup pots which looked really delicious - served with a variety of fresh hydroponic, organic vegetables. I'd like to try the soup pot but am the lone vegan in a large heavy meat eating work group so I usually dine solo.
The sliced tofu wrapped in beancurd sheet was a tasty generously portioned dish as was the broccoli with bamboo and mock chicken.
Like most Buddhist restaurants, beer or wine is not available so I had the German Maltz which was a nice molasses tasting soft drink. Tea, juices and smoothies are also available.

love this place - Edit

If you choose wisely, extremely tasty dishes. Not too expensive and a pleasant environment. Have been here a few times and thoroughly enjoyed my dining experiences. Can recommend the Sichuan termite mushrooms and the mushroom and truffle dumplings, so good. Oh and of course the deep fried tofu is a winner! Even my meat-loving partner loves the place!

Favourite vegetarian restaurant in Hong Kong - Edit

I think I found today my favourite vegetarian restaurant in Hong Kong! :) (And what is even better, it's a vegan one.) We had dinner at Pure Veggie House today. It was national holiday and the restaurant was packed with locals, but they could find a very nice table for 2 of us. We ate one dim sum, one noodle dish and one tofu dish. We chose spicy Sichuanese style dishes as we really like those. Flavours were varied and great. Service was really nice and friendly. To balance the spicy main dishes we chose cooling, mild local tofu pudding as dessert. It was really good. We also tried fresh peanut mochis, which were great too. We'll definitely be back.

Pros: Superb food, Friendly service , Totally vegan

the best of Veg Chinese in HK - Edit

This restaurant is my fave but it's better to go during lunch due to their awesome dimsum menu. In addition to the dimsums, their omlette, rice crackers and gravy are worth trying too.

Pros: Reasonable price, Good food quality, Food is delivered to your table quickly!

Cons: Noisy noisy noisy, Not too accessible by public transport, Sometimes they're too busy so it takes a while for

Stevie 14 Feb 2016 - Hi Paul,

If I can politely check my understanding please? You're criticism of this Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong is that they sell Chinese food?

Keep well, Stevie

My favorite in Hong Kong - Edit

This is probably my favorite restaurant in Hong Kong. It has style, it is vegan, most of the food is organic and everything just tastes amazing! Try their Sichuan style tofu with lots of chili peppers, nuts and bell pepper! The tofu comes in several versions and is just amazingly tasty!

If you are vegan, chances are you never had hot pot cause usually it is very meat based. Definitely go and try their hotpot! It is all-you-can-eat and they have a great variety of vegetables, mushrooms, beancurd and dumplings to choose from. Totally worth the price!

Also go and try their dim sum. Another Hong Kong specialty at lunchtime. Lots of tasty small things to order and enjoy. All of them very tasty. A must try: The wonton in chili sauce!

Well, prices are a bit high, but it is just too tasty to not come back all the time ;) Oh yeah: Better call ahead and reserve a table.

Pros: 100% vegan, organic, Some of the best food in town

Cons: Pricey
