Jain Friendly Restaurants in Hong Kong

By on October 16, 2013

For all my Jain friends in Hong Kong who struggle to find restaurants that serve Jain food, have a possible solution. Personally, I experience this problem when relatives and friends come from India and are very keen on trying Chinese and international cuisines, however have certain reservations as the food provided or served isn’t Jain, making it void for them to eat. If you request and tell them what you can eat, you are likely to enjoy a beautiful meal. Just make sure to say what you cannot eat before and don’t forget to double check your order!

Jain Restaurants

Pure Veggie House [Chinese]

Serving you authentic and vegetarian Chinese cuisines, you must try the tom yum soup, a variety of dim sums and the Lo Hon Chai Meen

3/F, Coda Plaza, 51 Garden Road, Mid-Levels .

Mask of Sichuan [Chinese] – Ask for a vegetarian menu, and they ask whether you want a Jain or no Jain Menu. So don’t be afraid to try anything on the Jain menu. My personal favorite is the Cheung Fan in black pepper sauce.

No 33 Tsim Sha Tsui East Station, Tsim Sha Tsui

Nahm [Vietnamese and Thai] – You can put a request for vegetarian jain pad thai and som tam. Jain food at this restaurant is available on request, as the staff will be more than happy to customize your dish for you, as per your dietary requirement. Shop 1044-1045,

1/F, Elements, 1 Austin Road West, Tsim Sha Tsui

Café Iguana [Mexican] – Try out some deliciously layered Nachos, Fajitas, Tacos and Burritos. Read  HKYantoYan’s review of Cafe Iguana here.

Shop R004, Roof Level, Elements, 1 Austin Road West, Tsim Sha Tsui

Tamarind [Pan Asian] – They serve great Thai food, like vegetable green curry and stir fried tofu. If you not too keen on experiment around, they also serve Indian food, you can enjoy with the beautiful view. Read HKYantoYan’s review of Tamarind here.  

2/F, Sun Hung Kai Center, 30 Harbour Road, Wan Chai

Nomads [Mongolian] –  As long as you choose your toppings right and say vegetarian dish when you give it in, you have nothing to worry about. Don’t be scared to experiment with the different sauces available, you never know you might be a great chef.

Shop A, G/F, 53-59 Kimberley Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Roccos Pizzeria [Italian] – You can choose any pizza, but read the toppings and tell them to exclude mushrooms and onions based on your choice of pizza. You can also choose pastas for instance, ravioli and lasagna but again tell them what ingredient you would like to exclude.

Shop G66, Tsim Sha Tsui Centre, 66 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui G/F, The Hart, 4 Hart Avenue, Tsim Sha Tsui

Amaroni’s Little Italy [Italian] – You must try the bruschetta. With large portions try the fettuccine alfredo or the ravioli. Their margarita pizza comes with a pesto flavored base so if you are up for something new order it.

Shop 32, LG1, Festival Walk, 80 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong Shop 1401, 14/F, Hysan Place, 500 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay

Dan Ryans [American] – They have limited choice for jain food, but if you are in a small group, order in the nachos served with salsa and sour cream. Also order their creamy ravioli.

88 Queensway,114 Pacific Place, Admiralty Shop 28, LG2, Festival Walk, 80 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong Obviously not to forget all the great Indian Restaurants in Hong Kong

The Great Indian Kebab Factory [Indian] – If you want value for money, you cant beat the set dinner at this restaurant. Now open in 2 locations. Read HKYantoYan’s of TGIKF review here.

Shop 8, 2/F, Miramar Shopping Centre, 132 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui 19/F and Wellington Place, 2-8 Wellington Street, Central

Tandoori Nights [Indian] – In the hustle bustle of Tsim Sha Tsui’s Cameron Road,

2/F, Eastern Flower Centre, 22-24 Cameron Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Khanna Khazana [Pure Vegetarian] – A pure vegetarian institution in Hong Kong. Probably the only Indian vegetarian restaurant in Hong Kong Side? Let us know if there is another. 

1/F., Dannies House, 20 Luard Road, Wan Chai

Brantos [Pure Vegetarian] – Some really good snacks like sev puri and pau bhaji. Pure vegetarian restaurant, need we say more?
