We loved the vegetarian meal which we had during our visit to the Po Lin Monastery and the Big Bhudda. We opted to pay the extra on our entrance and chose the deluxe option. We were not disappointed. We had a large, tasty meal in...an authentic restaurant which is all part of the monastery complex. Well worth the money an dit all goes to boost the funds for the upkeep.More
As non vegetarians we struggled to eat the meal. All reviews were positive so we went in with open minds and hungry bellies, ready to be converted. Unfortunately for us, it didn't tick boxes. The stir-fry, mushrooms and desert thing were well presented and looked...ok. The soup was very unappealing. We were very aware it was monastery food and conscious of the beliefs and ideals - ie non-wastage. We put this down to an experience and donation.
Restaurant as expected was basic, and service was quick despite there being a number of different groups.
For the record, we spent time in a Buddhist temple in South Korea and the food there was also strictly vegetarian, however much more palatable.More
We recently visited this restaurant for lunch during our trip to Po Lin monastery. Vegetarian meals are served family style and are rather simple though fairly good and well prepared. It is probably one of the better, if not the only one, places for lunch...at the monastery when visiting big Buddha. EnjoyMore
On holidays in Hong Kong, we decided to visit the Po Lin Monastery Vegetarian Restaurant. They have very delicious meals, for strict vegetarians this is just the best restaurant for you and also affordable.
This is a vegetarian restaurant so do not look for any meat! But what you get is filling and doesn’t cost the earth! (Excuse the pun!) You can get the snack free if you go into the exhibition at the Buddha. Only cost £4.40 each.
