Setting up shop in the Cadogan building on the corner of Belcher's Street, Vanimal is that rare creature in Hong Kong’s foodie scene – a vegetarian restaurant. Given vegetarianism’s marginal status in the so-called culinary cosmopolis, perhaps it’s fitting that Vanimal finds itself way out west in Kennedy Town – but that’s not going to stop a horde of hungry and green-thumbed diner knocking down this eatery’s door for a table. This is non-meat eating elevated to truly gourmet heights, with expert chefs preparing dishes – from homemade pickles and tapas-style small plates to big sharers, main courses and the ‘daily catch’ specials – that are packed with sensational flavour, texture and colour. This intimate 30-seater restaurant’s picture is completed by a smart, modern interior courtesy interior design studio via.architecture, and an impressive selection of specialty drinks.
Really enjoyed this restaurant. It's great to go to a veggie restaurant which is stylish but produces inventive and delicious choices. Also very good value for money and great service
I was excited to try this innovative looking restaurant but I was slightly disappointed. The menu needed way too much explanation by the waitress. I didn't much like the flavours of the skewers, but that's probably personal. The salad was very fresh and had an interesting dressing. The decor was cool but it was empty on a Monday night.
The food and cocktails were amazing! We really loved it. The staff was also really friendly. I recommend Vanimal to everyone, especially if you're vegetarian and have never experienced a more creative restaurant.
