Visiting Chi Lin is an adventure from the start. Just outside the Diamond Hill MTR exit, you leave the hustle bustle of shoppers in Hong Kong and enter the magnificent quiet, tranquility, and beauty of the Long Men Gardens. The gardens have Buddhist temples, pagodas, carved stones, fountains -- just a feast for the senses. The restaurant is at the far end of the gardens, really about as far back as you can go. Note -- reservations are absolutely necessary, unless you are prepared for a long wait and willing to sit in rather undesirable locations. Remember the gardens and the fountains -- yes, you want to be able to see those, whether it is at lunch (natural light) or at dinner (the gardens are lit). I went with my wife and her sisters, one of whom is a long time confirmed and strict vegetarian -- she did the ordering, but the menu is fully user friendly (to Chinese or English speaking people). It seem that almost every dish involved different sorts of mushrooms -- I have never seen such variety in one restaurant -- each with its own flavor, texture, smell. The mushrooms accompanied many other vegetables, and honestly, I never missed the meat, fish, or poultry!! Really, this was an "over the top" meal -- recommended for everyone, and especially for those who think that a meal must include something beyond vegetables. Truly awesome.
