We had read great reviews and were very much looking forward to our meal here but on the whole, we were disappointed.

The food was already served when we got there at 13:15 (as instructed) so the main meal was luke warm. The starter was a simple soup, the main course was also just plain vegetables and lentils with a few side dishes (that tasted better) and the desert was a sort of pudding cream I personally did not like. This meal was not worth 18€, even though, on the positive sides of things, drinks are included and the choice was nice: organic apple juice, water and lots of different teas.

The staff were not friendly at all and we were expected to eat all three courses in just 45 minutes after which we were literally told we had to go. We also inquired about the ingredients and wanted to know what 5 element cuisine was all about and we were told to "look up online".

The concept is that you eat on large tables with the other guests but it seemed we were the only paying guests and whilst everyone could hear our conversation, we obviously weren't welcomed to ask about the concept of the place or the dishes.

We may well have come on the wrong day, maybe the food is usually better, but we won't be back.

Contemporary vegan and vegetarian cooking

Posted on 09 / 18 / 2013

Lovely place in almost the center of Cologne with divers options: daily menu (3 course at EUR 15) for which you have to register until 10am on the day you would like to eat; cooking school based on 5 element kitchen an lots of other cooking classes like ayurvedic, raw. Very good aspect are the 9 months trainings for people who work in classic restaurants to give them an idea of vegetarian/vegan cuisine. The owner Mayoori is an experienced lady who worked many years in public restaurants and dedicates her life to expand vegan and vegetarian healthy cooking for everybody in a contemporary and easy way. Aboslutely worth seeing and experiencing!

Pros: excellent food quality, well trained staff, warm and welcoming atmosphere
Cons: limited opening times for public eating
