Underrated, worth a visit

Posted on 04 / 08 / 2016

Bodhi Chay is a small vietnamese restaurant owned by a nice vietnamese family. They serve NEARLY just vegan food and know what's vegan and not so don't hesitate to state you're vegan. Non-vegan dishes can be adjusted into vegan ones easily. Don't expect haute cuisine but the food is worth its price. When it get's warmer you can sit outside at Deisterstra├če. In the colder months it can get either chilly, smokey or both at the same time because the guest room is very small and next to the kitchen (you enter the place sort of through the kitchen) so all the odours go into the guest room.

Pros: nearly everything is vegan, inexpensive, small friendly family business
Cons: bad airing in winter, rather modest/don't expect too much

Best Vietnamese food in town!

If you really want to taste good delicious Vietnamese food you'll have to visit Bodhi Chay. Most of the Asian snack bars and restaurants in Hannover only have asian meals that are made for the tongues of Europeans. At the Bodhi Chay there a lot of interesting meals where you can discover the kitchen of Vietnam.

Only a few dishes are not vegan.

The staff is friendly, but the older man there doesn't speak good German. So sometimes it could happen that you get something what you didn't ordered. Better order at the woman. ;-)

You can have your meal for take away or you can eat it there. Nice atmosphere there. Often Vietnamese music, the interior is Buddhistic.

Prices are cheap. :)

Enjoy your meal! :)

Pros: Real Vietnamese food, Cheap prices
Cons: Only cash
