Japanese food is mostly associated with fresh fish and meats – thin-sliced sashimi, rolled-up sushi or skewered and grilled yakitori – but their vegetarian culinary history is as long and storied as anywhere. Few restaurants specialise in just the meat-free dishes, but the ones that do are always worth a visit, and none more so than Isoya Japanese Vegetarian Restaurant on Wan Chai Road. They offer up a menu of impeccably arranged sushi dishes, flash-fried tempura veggies and grilled onigiri, as well as a huge range of dumplings and soups. Shoot off Hennessy Road around Wan Chai MTR station and make the most of the meatless morsels that keep Hong Kong’s Japanese junkies coming back to Isoya time and again.

The restaurant is an oasis in Wanchai. The ambiance is relaxing, as the lighting and fitting out make ones feel comfortable. The food is healthy but surprisingly tasty. The staff is very friendly.
Fantastic. Restaurant layout is a little odd but the good is just wonderful. Went for lunch and had the full set. It was starter dishes and then a choice of main. A lot of good and I will definitely be back.
Pleasant experience in this special restaurant, good food and very well presented. We were with a group of four and all of us (one vegetarian) liked the food and it's diversity.
