Im vegan and found this Reataurant on a shorttrip in Munich. "Bodhi" offers a lot of bavarian meals which was very special for us. I ordered the "Bodhi Pfanderl", a meal with dumplings and red cabbage, which was very delicious. My girlfiend ate the "Kässpatzn". Also a traditional meal, which also was very good.
As a dessert we shared the "Kaiserschmarrn" an Austrian style shredded caramailzed thick pancake served with apple compote, which was phenomenal!!!
I visited this restaurant several times and i always had a great time. the stuff is very friendly, the food is delicious!!! The Burger is my fav meal. (you even get a many wedges as you want!). Also the soups are always very tasty. My fav dessert is the dark and white mousse au chocolat. Fantastic. I need to come back soon.
In the last year I was there several times, also joined by omnivore-friends. The variety of dishes convinced everybody at once and we enjoyed the meal and the relaxed, cozy atmosphere. It's not as ambitious as "Max Pett" i would say, more "Wirtshaus"-like ;)
The standard dishes all taste excelent. I liked the salad with fried soya-pieces also very much and found the salad dressing extraordinary and tasty.
However, in my experience the changing seasonal dishes are not always completely convincing - but worth trying.
We had a late lunch at Bohdi. Food is okay. I had 'large salad'- it was pretty boring and not very big, something you'd get at an omni restaurant rather than a vegan place. My husband has mac and cheese which was very well presented but a bit bland (we make better at home following Jamie Oliver's recipe...)
We've had so much amazing food in Germany... It feels like Bodhi need to up their game a little...
All great! Highly recommend it!
We visited Bodhi twice during our two days in Munich. It has a really cosy atmosphere, they played good music, and the staff are friendly and speak excellent English. Most importantly though, we really enjoyed our food and the coffee was great.
I would not have thought we would have found a place like this right near the Oktoberfest site. It was a real gem on a quiet street and was conveniently open late. The price was moderate.
Only issue we had was on our second visit, when the waitress kept our change (about 3 euros). We were taken aback but too polite to say anything so just left. At least we could laugh about it later.
Happy Cow says the place is open from 10.00AM on Sunday, I came there around 11.00, the place was closed, but the timetable on the door said it actually works from 12.00 on weekends. I walked around until after noon, came back - it was STILL CLOSED!! Very dissapointed.
Though nothing on the homepage was noted, the restaurant was closed when I wanted to visit it.
This place is definitely one of my favourites in Munich. The atmosphere is really nice, the food is all vegan and sooo good, some meals always stay on the menu but they also serve seasonal dishes, the price is good, the staff is really friendly and you don't need to call too far in advance to book a table.
The Happy Cow meetup last week was there and we had an amazing time with fun people, delicious food and great cocktails.
I would definitely recommend the asparagus with the crunchy schnitzel and the Hugo cocktail!
Update. One year later.
It got better!
Bumping up (from two) to four stars.
Staff really nice and helpful (didn't change).
The food tastes better. Starters are smaller (that's a good thing) so you can actually combine them with a main course.
Loved the fresh lemonades!
(Still one or two things that could get better, beergravy is pudding like. But again that's just small things)
Will definitely return!
Previous review on Tuesday April 29, 2014
I was there for two times now.
I very much liked the idea of a vegan restaurant where I can take my parents, a down to earth location with beer available ;) .
The staff was very nice both times!
The starters are way to big to be called starters, why call them starters?
I tasted 9 courses. (Soups, Salads, Main Dishes, Deserts)
The food is just plain boring.
The one meal I recommend is Soy-Roulade with red cabbage, traditional dumpling and gravy. It's a fake version of a very traditional meal and if you miss that you should totally order it.
But for the rest, I simply cannot take my parents there and not because of Bodhi being vegan (which might frighten some non vegans) but because the food is average at best.
The biggest disappointment was a brownie for desert. It was completely dry. I shared it with a friend and after the first bite we decided not to finish it.
I'd be very happy if the food changes and will go there again just to see if it does.
And I'd be very happy to update this review if it does.
I was in Munich alone, travelling. I found Bodhi, a vegan restaurant, and the meals were delicious, not expensive, and very innovatory. The waiter is so helpful and sociable, I enjoyed it a lot. So, I decided to have my meal everday in Bodhi, during my 3-day stay in Munich. Thanks!
A definite must in Munich. I adored the Kasespatzle, but everything else on the menu (I went multiple times) is good as well. The portions are huge and the service great. And on top it is just a very nice place to hang out.
What a great find in Munich! I was at Bodhi last week and had the roasted lupin fillet with mustard crust, red wine shallots, romanesco and parsnip puree. It was a good, hearty dish, and exactly what I would hope for from Bavarian-inspired vegan food. My partner had the mango rolls, which he liked but said he preferred the taste of my lupin fillet more, and we both thought the vegan burgers at the next table looked delicious. The next time I visit I'll try one of those burgers. A lot of other people were ordering salads for their entree, which also looked delicious. Our server was attentive and we had some good beer to boot. Overall, a solid choice. I will definitely return!
Really nice vegan restaurant serving typical Bavarian food in veganized version, which I found really interesting and unique!
We had the cheese spätzle, the hamburger and the apple strudel - everything was delicious and the portions quite big, we had to make an effort to finish everything! :-)
The price was okay.
The restaurant was very full when we went, so I recommend reserving a table.
Since I live in Munich, I always check out new vegetarian or vegan places to eat out. I was especially excited about the opening of Bodhi, because the reviews were so over-the-top. I've been there five or so times by now, and the experiences were very different each time. Some of the dishes are truly great (like the Käsespätzle or the Creme Brulee), but others are bland and boring. The service was very, very observant once, but absolutely inattentive the other times. Even when we were dining early and were the only customers the waitress ignored us for an entire hour and almost made us miss our theater show. Overall, the atmosphere is nice, but the prices are too high. I simply cannot recommend Bodhi without a VERY big BUT! because we were dissapointed by the service and food several times.
When I heard, there is going to open a completely vegan restaurant, I was delighted and I really wished, it would be good.
I went there with my husband and he had the Burger, I had the most expensive dish on the menu (over 20€), I can´t even remember what it was because there was no taste. It was just warm, nothing more.
My husbands burger was bland and boring.
Could have been dishes you get served on an airplane. I´m really sorry, but just being vegan is not enough.
Also I don´t like the concept of just fake someting. Fake meat, fake cheese, and so on. Why not create unique vegan dishes?
I am really sorry but I won´t go there again, it was a complete waste of money.
The staff was very friendly but that´s about the only positive thing I can say.
Wir haben die Käsespätzle und Steak bestellt. Fast so gut wie die echte Speisen.
This place is superb. The menu tries to have a traditional German feel to it, but has a lot of variety. Everything we had was really nice. The service was great too. Well worth visiting.
It difficult to find German-style vegan food, but thankfully, we found Bodhi while staying in Munich! This place is a little off the beaten path but well worth the extra few minutes to get there. This gem of a restaurant is very cute and has wonderful staff who helped us to translate the menu from German. I had a vegan spaetzle! I swear, you would never know it was vegan-- it was so creamy and rich! My boyfriend had a pasta dish with eggplant and cranberries that was also great and we shared a gazpacho soup for an appetizer. Way too much food for dinner, but it was all amazing! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for the real German-food experience without all of the meat and dairy! Can't wait to go back next time we are in Munich!
We visited late on a Sunday evening, while waiting to change trains: the restaurant is 15 minutes walk from the station. I had Schnitzel and Potato Salad. My wife, a potato connoisseur loved that potato salad, and wished she'd ordered that, though the salad that she'd ordered was also good.
I had a panna cotta, because I've never had one before. My wife reckoned that it was a good panna cotta, as far as panna cotta goes: but we agreed that we don't really see the attraction.
Very friendly service: we really enjoyed our meal.
They don't take credit cards, but will point you in the direction of a nearby ATM!
AMAZING. If you are in Munich, and you don't eat here, you are INSANE because it is not only the best meal I've had while traveling through Germany, it's probably the best vegan food I've had at a restaurant, hands-down.
I ordered the soy roulade and my friend got the "kaese" spaetzle. Both were incredibly delicious. I wish I could go back to Munich, if only to eat at this place again!!!
The vegan schnitel was amazing! I didn't think I would find any. It was nice and crispy. The potato salad was delightfully mustardy. The tartar sauce like dip was so good, too. This was like a pub and has probably been my favorite place in Munich for dinner.
My wife and I stopped by this place for dinner and had an absolutely excellent experience! Completely vegan with fantastic flavor! The price was very reasonable and the staff were all extremely friendly! The atmosphere was very calm and relaxing and they had a HUGE pepper grinder that isn't just for show; the waitress chuckled at the expression of excitement on my face as I used it!!! This place is a MUST for anybody, vegan or not, traveling to, or living in, the Munich area!
Wonderful food and service. Our waitress was very helpful and sweet. The food was delicious. Doesn't get much better than this.
We sought out Bodhi for dinner after reading the fabulous reviews on Happy Cow and Bodhi didn't disappoint!
It looks like a 'normal' German pub but is entirely vegan. The staff are super friendly and we had great difficulty choosing from the extensive menu of german vegan fare. After the agony we settled on a smoked tofu pflammkuchen and a tofu roulade served with a rich gravy, potato knödel and sautéed red cabbage; traditional german dishes that we never dreamed we could eat. Wow! Really tasty.
For dessert, we lashed out on the chocolate mousse; one ball each of white and dark chocolate mousse brought together by a raspberry coulis. Divine!
Go there and fill your face with amazing german vegan food!
The vegan "HAVE TO visit and hang around"-place in Munich.
You will LOVE it, because they serve typical german food like "Roulade", "Knödel", "Blaukraut" or "Käsespätzle" - and every meal is vegan! Don't hesitate to visit Bodhi with your omnivore friends, I'm sure they'll love it, too.
I (born and living in Munich) am so happy to have found a place that combines vegan food with our well known "Kneipen"-Feeling.
EVERYTHING tastes delicious!!! I'm not kidding - I would eat any dish from the menu and I always have problems choosing one (or two, or three,...) :-)
The staff is really great. Living vegan they are able to help the guests by making the right choice what to eat (which isn't easy at Bodhi!).
I've found my new local, could be there for hours - and I am sure you will enjoy your stay at Bodhi, too!!! Take your time, order a original munich beer, relax, lay back and listen to their unmistakable sound!

Absolutely fantastic restaurant with delicious food, nice and caring staff and easygoing atmosphere. The prices are, considering the portions and quality, very fair and the service is quick. Great music and ambience as well, good to hang out only for drinks and meeting locals, too.
In the very heart of Munich and 5 minutes walking distance to the legendary Theresienwiese, where the Oktoberfest is stated is the location of the new vegan restaurant bodhi. You can reach the place (Ligsalzstrasse 23)via Subway (U4/U5, Station "Schwanthalerhöhe"), just 2 stations from the Central Station "Hauptbahnhof".
Typically bavarian food and international Burgers or Pasta is waiting for you here. Enjoy it with delicious bavarian beer or a cocktail in the cozy and relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant. Prices are moderate and you have a english-speaking, young team taking care of you! Open daily with open end!Further informations on
