good burgers but very busy - Edit

The burger I ordered was delicious, however I went on a Wednesday at 12:30 without a reservation and had to give the table back at 1. Best make a reservation before going

Extremely poor service - Edit

I went to lunch with a reservation in July 2017. Staff directed us to sit at a table for 2, we made a reservation for 3 a week before. Staff was adamant that sitting 3 people in a tiny table for 2 was common practice. A table for 4 was empty but he won't let us have it.
We left afterwards cos arguing with the owner was futile. If the owner behaved like an idiot, I won't care how good the food is. Be careful about reservations when eating there, especially during weekday lunch when everywhere in that area of Hong Kong is crazily packed.

I went there looking for a sweet treat and I ordered the warm chocolate molden cake. It takes 15min to make (they warned me) and the portion seems small, but actually it s the perfect size !
Will go again ! (They serve it with coco chantilly❀)

Pros: all vegan

Fab Place - Edit

The food is fantastic and the portions are pretty good even though the prices are quite steep. Great burgers. The decor is very nicely designed with the whole American retro theme going on. Popular place so you might want to book as it isn't huge. A little hard to find. Make sure you find the right building that is 11 Stanley Street and go up to the tenth floor.

Nice but a bit pricey - Edit

I had the beetroot burger but I believe the patty could have been more flavourful.. and also it would have been better if there was more "mayo" on the bread or patty instead of all over the tomatoes.. but I liked the fact that the patty wasnt greasy/ oily.. so it makes you feel less guilty about gorging on burger and fries!

The punpkin and potato fries were excellent.

It was HK$ 185 for the burger, fries, soup and drink; all part of the lunch set.

Pros: Vegan restaurant, nice vibe, friendly staff

Cons: A bit expensive....

An extraordinary experience - Edit

This California-themed restaurant in the 10th floor of a commercial buildung vis-Γ -vis Holly Brown Coffee on Stanley St.
Firstly, the decoration is the killer! They really applied a lot of effort to make this place how it is. It is a lovely idea and works out very well! I loved all the sarcastic comments mounted everywhere!
Secondly, the food is fantastic. Delicious meals, very nicely arranged, that taste amazing, overall real treats!
Thirdly, the staff is very attentive, helpfull and lovely.
However, everything is at a dear price. There's no denying it.
Also, better make sure to reserve a table. I was there three or four times and got lucky, but I had to rush two times as the table was booked for later.
Beyond that, the portions can be rather small, especially the pasta dishes. The opening times aren't great. The WiFi connection is good.
Resumed, an awesome experience to eat there. Not only great decor but also high-end dining. Actually, I would recommend anyone going to Hong Kong Veggie SF as a must-go.

Pros: amazing decor, very tasty food, awesome staff

Cons: pricey, dissatisfying opening times, portions could be a tad bigger

Great atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and they all seem to speak great English. The food was ok. I go ordered the "I am fabulous" burger. I don't necessary recommend it. I would come back and try something else for sure.

Pros: vegan

Cons: it's kinda hidden. it's on a 10th floor of a rando

A MAZING - Edit

First of all, the atmosphere at this location is just really beautiful. You feel like being in a very cosy diner that's been set up with great attention to detail.
And the food!! The best dinner I had for a long time, also the banana cashew cake with ice cream was just delicious. The manageress Bess is SO lovely, she even gave me a list of things to do in HK and restaurants to try! Thank you so much Veggie SF, I'll definitely come back :)

Great food, adorable set-up! - Edit

This is one of my favourite vegan restaurants HK! They've recently switched to all-vegan, which is fantastic.

The decor is super unique -- 1950s themed with music and merchandize to match. The menu is extensive. I've tried a veggie burger, noodle dish, and "Trip to Bali" meal here -- all delicious! The staff are also super-friendly! I had a talk with one of the management staff about the lack of vegan restaurants in HK my first time there. Since the food was so great, I came back the following night with a friend and she remembered me, and also brought us a free appetizer of duck wraps to our table to say thanks for coming back. Great customer service!

They seem to care about the social/environmental aspects about being vegan -- you can visit the corner on the way to the bathroom and see all the leaflets and posters they have up about animal cruelty. It's great to see a business that actually cares, and isn't simply vegan for the sake of profit or being "trendy". Well done! This is a great spot to bring non-veg/vegan friends since the food delicious and the portions are large.

The milkshakes are good, but on the menu it doesn't specify that they are made from bananas (I thought they were soy shakes!) If you don't like bananas, don't order a shake!

Pros: friendly staff, large and delicious food portions, adorable decor

Cons: short opening hours, reservation needed even on weeknights, menu does not list all ingredients

Extremely delicious - Edit

I'm very much into burgers so this place is perfect for me. I ordered the Fisherman's Wharf burger with vegan fillet and potato/sweet potato fries, and it was really good. The Thai-style soy milk tea was also nice. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in HK!

Pros: delicious food , friendly staff, huge menu

Cons: too crowded

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

OK, this one might not be as healthy as the other ones I mention but I have to put them on the list because their vegan burger is so so good they are the best I've ever had in my life!

This place, like its name, is decorated in a 50s, 60s vibe from San Francisco, California and they even have a California state flag flying right at the restaurant (I immediately recognized that, once a Cali always a Cali LOL)! They also have various old-fashioned decoration items that take you right back in time. Even the menu is in a retro-style! It's basically your typical American diner food place, VEGAN edition. :P


So the most important food here- the burgers. I've tried different kinds but the best ones in my opinions are the ones with the patty made from beetroot and lentils. The sweet taste from the beetroot is such an outstanding flavor that adds to the entire flavor of the burger. The cheese in the burger is also vegan so the entire taste is very light. Unfortunately the buns are just regular ones made from flours so if you are gluten-free you might want to order something else.


With that being said, there's still plenty of options to choose from on the menu. The nuggets made from soy is so so so good and very addicting too. Even though you know they are fried and might not be as good for you but at least I just couldn't help getting it every time I visit! There's also a Southeast Asia dish with Indonesian influence, a rice dish, that seems extremely popular among other customers there so it should be pretty good.

I'm quite a salad-addict but this place might not be a good place for salad if you need a good salad-fix. The base is the regular lettuce and no superfood or anything added. Plus the price seems a bit unreasonable for what you get both in the quality and the portion of the salad. In terms of other mains there's plenty to choose from, with sushi rolls, Vietnamese noodles, pastas and Mexican dishes to offer.

One thing to complain other than the high price ($148HKD for the burger alone), is that they only take cash and they close as early as 9pm so you can't do a late night burger run in here...

I would say this place is a perfect spot to introduce your non-vegan friends and those who are new to the idea of eating healthy since they can satisfy all their fast food cravings here in vegan version without losing any of the yumminess.

Veggie SF, Hong Kong - Edit

Armed with the info they have converted to being all vegan I rocked along here today. Today was the 1st I've eaten here for around 2 years. It was thoroughly enjoyable.

Sharing with she-who-I-must-obey meant I got to sample soup, burger with salad and chips, and an all day breakfast. This was the best cooked brekkie I've had since moving to HK 2+ years ago. All of the food was great.

Its minimum 150 hkd spend per person. Cash only.


Updated from previous review on Saturday July 19, 2014

Pros: All vegan, Nice vibe

Cons: Not best for a tight budget

loved the place - Edit

I was hoping to avoid non-Asian vegetarian places, but the rain and an error in the address of a different restaurant made us walk into Veggie SF. The atmosphere is cute. There were 35 people sitting in a relatively small room, giving some extra coziness.
Food was very tasty.
The only complaint we have was the listing of one of the beverages - the kombucha turned out to be the Yogi Tea Kombucha (whatever they mean by eat) and not the fermented drink. We pointed it to the stuff. Not sure if they will change it to a better description.
I would recommend the pasta with the truffles.

Pros: location, coziness

Cons: the non-kombucha

Great place with cool atmosphere - Edit

The place can be really busy so better to not go in rush hour or too reserve in advance if thatΒ΄s possible.
I had a huge burger with fries and for desert a great smoothie. The place is decorated with retro stuff in americana/San Fransisco style.

Well worth the tripp!

Pros: The burgers, Cool decor, Great variety

Cons: Crowdy, Hard to find

Veggie SF - Edit

I was a little dissapointed by the food here but to be honest I think that was just my own personal tastes. The staff were really nice and it seems that maybe reservations are necessary also doesn't open till 6.30pm. We had starters thai skewers which I liked and crispy nuggets which were quite chewy and bland faux chicken nuggets....My partner ordered the steak for main which had a strange texture and he really didn't like the sauce which covered it (but think this was personal taste), I had a mushroom burger which I was ok but not special. I agree with other reviews which state that it is expensive for the quality of food. The decor is pretty cool though and there is a nice vibe inside.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good vibe - Stylish Place, Clean

Cons: Expensive food, Food not that exciting for price

Not great value or variety for vegans - Edit

Firstly, the positive...the interior of the restaurant is very cool with an American 50's diner feel and a fun atmosphere. The menu is quite extensive, but only a couple of dishes are marked as being vegan. The food is very 'American', with lots of dairy. To be fair, the wait staff are friendly and willing to help, and it seems that most items on the menu can be made vegan upon request. The food is decent but nothing special, and it is quite expensive for what you get (even by HK standards). Overall, I'd say this restaurant is just OK for a vegan.

Pros: Fun atmosphere & cool interior, Friendly & helpful staff

Cons: Very few vegan options, Quite expensive, Food just OK, not that healthy

fun place! - Edit

You will spend around 140 hkd in this place (not so cheap for hk veggie food). Interiors are fab! Food is ok, the leaves seemed so fresh. Will come back with a friend next time to share the big meal!

Tip: get the Portobello mushroom for the add on and not the mock meat.

Pros: good interiors, easy to get to, minimal mock meat

Cons: a bit expensive

A Gastronomic Gouging - Edit

At a minimum guaranteed spend of 150HK$ per head to book a table, this isn’t a cheap option for veggie dining in Hong Kong by any stretch. However, despite the cluttered charm of the pastiche 50’s diner dΓ©cor, the quality of the meal I had certainly did not reflect the price tag. I went for one of the three available veggie burger options – portabella mushroom – expecting to find a large juicy fungal delight crowning a patty of some sort. But no: to my surprise a small, pallid portabella mushroom cozying with a slice of tomato between two dry, oversized slabs of bread WAS the burger in sum total. This was accompanied by three or four large hunks of potato that were already tepid on arrival, and a perfunctory mass of leaves serving as a salad. This was woeful even in comparison with the token veggie burgers found on budget menus in UK pubs, let alone fit for an expensive Western-style vegetarian diner in Hong Kong. Sadly, even the exceptionally friendly staff were not enough to relieve the sense of gastronomic gouging on this occasion.

Pros: Staff, Decor

Cons: Food, Price

OK - very American - fast food style fried dishes. - Edit

Vegans catered for - albeit somewhat grudgingly.

This is a very much a 'dairy restaurant'.

Junk food / comfort food - lots of deep frying - lashings of cream & butter.

Some friends like it, so I have to visit.

I have had some OK salads with pasta here.

The Fussili / Fuseli dish with cashews & olives is nice.

O-kay - Edit

Easy enough to find, this restaurant is a very nice and cozy place. But you can't eat ambiance! Their portions are very small for the kind of money being charged, we were hungry after ordering a burger each and a starter and dessert which we shared between 3. The size of the chocolate cake is quite absurd.

Go if you are in the area and need a quick snacky meal:) Good location!

Fabulous decor, few vegan options - Edit

I visited this restaurant in lunchtime and I had to queue for quite a while to be seated, as the restaurant was totally packed and many people had even made a table reservation. But this seems to be the situation in many restaurants in the central areas of Hong Kong at lunch hours.

The decor of the restaurant is fabulous 50's San Francisco style. They also have Peta magazines and leaflets, Buddhist literature and some vegetarian t-shirts to sell etc.

The menu has very few vegan options and the staff did not seem to have good knowledge about veganism or the ingredients of the dishes either. But they were still very friendly and helpful. There were also some menu items that weren't available during the lunch hours. Food that I finally had was ok, but nothing special.

The restaurant is situated at 10th floor of an office building, so it may be a little bit tricky to locate it, but overall the location is very central.

Pros: Fab decor, Friendly staff, Pro animal rights

Cons: Very few vegan options, Over crowded at lunch hours, Staff not very informed about veganism

Average food in a cool setting - Edit

The decor of this restaurant is very cool, and it's centrally located near tourist spots. However I felt the food wasn't anything special and was a bit expensive for the portion size. I was still hungry after we had finished our meal (we each ate one main). I probably wouldn't go back here but if I was in the area and needed a quick meal it would be fine.
