Amazing whether or not you are vegetarian! Everything from starters to mains to desserts are amazing, can't stop going back to try the whole menu!
What a wonderful Saturday afternoon lunch. The food and drinks are great as usual. All their waiting stuff are friendly and attentive. We had a grew time.
Great and relaxed service. Awesome food! We had the poached egg with smashed avocado and the pancakes. However, there so many other nice options to choose from as well. Absolutely the best place in town for GF brunch! Greatly recommendable!
everything was fine, service, food was very tasty. it was good to book the table as it was crowdy that day. The menu has improved with more choices, might be a little bit pricy for some meals.Over all excellent!!!
This is the second time I at Grassroots Pantry. One of my favorite places to have lunch whenever I am in HK. I had the hedgehog mushroom green curry which was delicious. And afterwards we had a vegan oatmeal cookie with a turmeric coconut milk latte, both really good. I highly recommend this restaurant even if you are not vegetarian.
Grassroots Pantry is a lovely restaurant with a calming decor and phenomenally delicious food that is sustainably sourced. Peggy Chan and her team's attention to detail and devotion to responsible living come through in every aspect of the special experience at Grassrooots Pantry.
The reservation process was a bit tedious for Valentine's day. First they said we had to pay a deposit and then later when we called, they say we didn't have to pay a deposit, but later sent an email to remind us that we still needed to pay a deposit. Also, the food for that night wasn't as spectacular as we had remembered for our previous visits. Otherwise, everything else was good. We still really appreciate what the restaurant stands for and its fresh and nutritious, yet yummy culinary style that promotes wellness. Love the rustic, homestyle of the restaurant too – the old one was bit more homey, but this expanded one is nice too.
Great restaurant with a very interesting menu and a .wonderful atmosphere Everything we had was very good and the staff were friendly and attentive. Dinner does not start being served until 6, so if you need an early dinner (which I did), you can choose from the bar menu. The staff were quite accommodating though, and we were able to get some items off the main dinner menu as well.
Wonderful vegetarian menu at Grassroots Pantry! We ordered a few different starters, mains, and desserts to share & really loved all of the delicious blending of flavors. Very good service as well. Definitely will come back for more!
The restaurant has a great spread of food options and are of great quality! Love the ambience and decor too! Great place for a cosy brunch! Just be warned that you'll need to climb a massive flight of stairs if you're coming from the MTR. Otherwise, this was a sweet find during my stay here in Hong Kong! :)
Service was not the best - servers didn't seem to be happy with their job and it seemed like they had not much energy or care for us. Most of the food was delicious, portions were quite small but it was good because it didn't cause us to overeat. However it was quite overpriced for the portions and we wouldn't go too often, a great place for special occasions.
Second time I've had dinner here. Best vegan/ vegetarian restaurant I've been. Gyoza's and pasta are yummie. Nicely decorated and staff is attentive. Only a table available at 9pm. The last order was around 10.30, which was a pity as we didn't have time for dessert once we finished our main course. It was very cold that day and inside as well, so didn't want to stay longer anyway.
The staff was very friendly and although it took us a long time to decide what to eat, they were patient with us. We got a small glass of champagne upon entering because we had to wait a bit for our table. The food was very good and the drinks as well.
Travelling with two vegan daughters we were wanting something special for our Christmas Day lunch. The restaurant was in a great area and looked very trendy. Plenty of variety on the menu but found the dishes average for taste and quality and not that good value for money. Dessert was always going to be a challenge so ordered only two and both were not that appetising. Service only average. Unfortunately not lived up to our expectations.
It's a bit pricey, but I highly recommend Grassroots Pantry for a healthy and tasty meal without sacraficing your diet. They are mostly vegan and gluten-free friendly, serving GF brea
Service was reasonably attentive with staff pouring water every so often. However, the first waiter that took our order didn't seem to put our order through and there was a wait whereby other customers beside us who ordered later already had their dishes out. Prices were so so for the area. Best dish was popcorn "chicken", an appetiser that could be made into a main as it was so yummy. Dessert choice was limited and didn't really appeal. The orange chocolate was somewhat refreshing but for over $100, it could be better.
We had an amazing and fantastic experience. The quality of the food, great service and comfortable fresh atmosphere made this a most memorable night. Cant believe vegan food is so flavoursome. The textures flavours and freshness combined was delectable. Definitely coming back here again.
Great ambience and a nice place for get small to medium sized gatherings. Service was on par, along with the food, drinks etc... Not the most "HK" vibe, but then again, if you are looking for an "HK" look and feel, websites might still fall behind knowing some locals.
Amazing restaurant! The food is one of the best in town. For all sorts of allergies they have amazing food. Healthy but very tasty. They environment of the restaurant is trendy and cozy. Would definitely recommend this place!
good service.and decor. the food was good not excellent... a bit disappointed perhaps because of its great reputation . semi sun dried tomatos on the buclwheat raviole didnt go, taste.sour ... maybe try pairing it.with beetroot . The glow was a bit on the salty side ..for a fruit veg drink. the kaffir in the tiraminsu was a tard heavy thus.a bit sour even eaten with the rest of the plate.
The vegetarian food we have is really really nice, small restro but in a nice neighbourhood, I like the design of menu, the use of organic and natural veggie, the raw cakes tastes wonderful, I would sure come back again.
Nice and original food; good service (always on top of the client's needs); nice space with wonderful decor; on the down side, some customers spilled a drink on the table/sofa/floor, but only the table got cleaned for the next customer...
Went there for a work lunch. Amazing food, great atmosphere! attentive staff. We highly recommend it! The only downside is the portion size, it might not be enough for a very hungry person.
Overall food was delicious. Service was not tho... very slow, and we did not get our food all together, as a group of 5-ladies having lunch. This was a bit annoying. Love the atmosphere and decoration of the restaurant!
Amazing restaurant! Amazing food! In love with the curry, kelp salad and sushi!!! And desserts are just too good to pass even under a full stomach! This place can just never disappoint!
THE SET RAW MENU MEAL WAS A FANTASTIC MEAL, THE STAFF PROVIDED A GREAT SERVICE AND THE AMBIANCE WAS PERFECT DUE TO THE EARTH HOUR THEME OF DINNER BY CANDLE LIGHT.
Like the set up and sevice. I am not a vegetarian but we like their food and the popcorn chichen really surprise us. Wish they have more dish variety and include the catering bites in their menu.
Really lovely place for lunch. We had the set menu and although the serving sizes looked small, we were content. The decor is really inviting and the staff were very good. We'll be back again for sure.
grassroots Pantry serves amazingly, fresh and delicious foods for gluten, nut, dairy free eaters. The ambience and surroundings are calm, relaxed and the service is very good. Highly recommend it!
As always, wonderful food with excellent service. The vegan green curry and house infusion were particularly warming on a cold wet evening. Highly recommend for that January detox!
Had lunch with a friend at GP and the set menu was fantastic! Perfect blend of spices, we enjoyed our meal thoroughly and can't wait to go back
I never had vegetarian food but I really enjoyed everything we ordered. Also, the staff was very friendly and attentive which made the overall dining experience special.
Excellent food. It keeps getting better and better! Loved the Som Tom noodles and the kale salad was light and delicious! Keep up the good work!
We came here for lunch, love the natural sunlight and bright ambience. Most importantly the food is excellent, very creative! Will definitely come back again.
Food is always innovative and high quality. Sometimes it is difficult to attract staffs' attention. Overall enjoyable experience. I do recommend to people and have taken several friends there.
Staff are helpful and cheerful. Comfortable seating with high ceiling. Creative dishes, fresh food with surprise. We love it especially we have vegetarians in our table. Great dinning experience!
My favourite restaurant in town! Fresh delicious vegetarian food, that are creatively put together, with many gluten free options. Beautiful relax atmosphere. Perfect place for catching up with friends.
Good food, great ambience. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. There raw cacao mocha was devine. I stumbled upon this by accident but found a gem. Recommend it.
I love this restaurant. The food is so good whether you're a meat eater or not. Albeit, it is pricey at times, it is one of my favourites.
The waiters there were very helpful! Food was great as usual, even tho my cacao bowl didn't live up to usual standard, the restaurant was kind enough to quickly change another one for me!
Simply divine vegetarian food. The gyozas are a must. Crispy with great umami. Kelp salad is hearty, delicious, and filling (the hedgehog mushrooms in it are exceptional).
This is a great restaurant catering for gluten free, vegan, diary free food lovers. Wholesome yet very delicious food, great ambience and very friendly and helpful staff.
Food was good, the waitresses were helpful, the environment was good，except it was a bit cold. We will certainly visit the restaurant again in the nearest future.
Good food although not many variety to choose from on the lunch menu. However the set lunch is a good deal;) Staff are Friendly too. In general it was a good experience, thanks!
It was my 2nd time there & still yummy dishes. Light, relaxing & healthy food does make ur mood better & lighter in body.. Will always b a vegetarian choice when im around!
Good vegan place with raw choices, but not too many and heavily overpriced. Atmosphere is bit strange and service need to smile sometimes. Make sure to book in advance as it's always full.
Nice setting and super healthy vegetarian food. I had "eel maki" made of cashew eel (kind of Kombu texture) and minced cauliflower in lieu of rice.
Good food. Clean. Decor was a bit bare. No wait. Staff was fine where they pretty much leave you alone. Would recommend. Ideal for business lunch.
Everything great. Always a good experience. I've been there three times, always for breakfast or brunch. I have not tried dinner there yet but will do.
Nice, simple selection of set lunches. Good service. Nice space. Lots of traffic on Hollywood Rd during lunch (especially on a Friday) so plan ahead!
