Great food, relaxing environment

5 Posted on 01 / 07 / 2014

I've eaten at Casa Satya a number of times. I really like the new menu. From the new menu, I've eaten the ginger tofu several times, the lentil soup, the cold avocado, cucumber and lime soup, onion soup, aloo gobi and sorbet. I don't usually like avocado but the soup was delicious. My other soups were also excellent. I especially liked the ginger tofu, but it is a bit too salty and perhaps could be improved by using low sodium soy sauce or using less soy sauce or not adding additional salt since soy sauce already has salt. I asked two different servers on different occasions if it could be made with less salt, and unfortunately it's not possible. But perhaps the next time they make their marinade they could use less salt. The tofu is the kind that has round corners that I had tried elsewhere in another city and thought wasn't good tofu. But apparently the issue was not the tofu but rather the sauce used in the other city. The aloo gobi was good. The shimeji mushroom dish was also good, but had a bit too much butter for my taste. I also like the sorbet and have gotten it several times.

I really enjoy the relaxing environment at Casa Satya and would definitely recommend it. The waitress is kind although she speaks somewhat limited English.

It's wonderful they have stopped serving fish and are now completely vegetarian. Vegan and raw item are clearly marked on the menu.

Fresh local food but not only

4 Posted on 02 / 26 / 2013

Restaurant serves fish but still it is the best option for vegetarians in Bucharest. They have great choice of platters and main dishes, etc. It is all fresh and nicely presented. Service is bit detached and they walk between you without shoes on which can be awkward from time to time but still worth the wait. Sesame paste is to die for. The restaurant has a great outdoor garden.

I would gladly come back :)

10min walk from Gara Nord. Very nice place and very interesting menu. I was in hurry and I took only soup and salad which was delisious. I regret I couldn't have stayed in Bucarest longer because I would love to taste other food.

Pros: menu, location
Cons: green carpet...

Great food - Slow service

3 Posted on 06 / 25 / 2012

Maybe it was simply bad timing, but when I came there with some friends and a business partner to eat, we waited forever for drinks, food or any service at all. I am usually very patient, but this attitute was a little too relaxed even for me. They did not have any cold beer nor the wine we wanted to pick from the menue. The food was very good, though, but I am not sure if it was really woth the waiting.

Pros: Nice place, Good food
Cons: Very slow service

The place to visit if you are Vegetarian

4 Posted on 03 / 31 / 2012

Bucharest is a relatively newly exposed environment to vegetarians, lack of knowledge and prejudice weighs down on the overall atmosphere. That is why a place such as Satya is highly valued, as it stands as an example for Vegetarian life style. I especially recommend the Lebanese platter, however there are plenty of other good choices for Vegetarians as well! The teas and lemonade are also worthwhile. Staff is friendly and the music (although at times too loud) rounds up the overall good impression.

Pros: friendly staff, warm atmosphere
Cons: fish, the rice is not always good

Pros: Good service, Tasty food

Pros: Atmosphere, Great healthy food, Friendly staff
Cons: serves fish

Best place in Bucharest

4 Posted on 04 / 26 / 2011

Fine place, friendly staff and delicious, healthy food.
I wish they stopped offering fish dishes. On the other hand, I can imagine it's practically impossible for them to survive with a 100 % vegetarian "repertoire" in a country which is (still) quite intolerant towards vegetarianism.
The vegan and raw dishes are marked - however, be sure to read the ingredient list carefully before ordering as I discovered a few mistakes. As a vegan, you're going to have a hard time trying to decide what to order, they have a lot of vegan dishes!
Their variety of herbal tea sorts (all organic, of course) is impressive.
The "breakfast" section is also wonderful, with lots of interesting shakes and cereals.
The service is friendly and one has the feeling that they really love what they are doing.
Satya also hosts seminar rooms, so it's nice to explore the house as well while waiting for your food.
The little terrace is open during warm weather.
The restrooms are also cosy (!) and very clean.
Definitely the place to be.

Pros: delicious, healthy food, very vegan and raw friendly, cosy atmosphere
Cons: it's not a 100 % vegetarian restaurant!

Higly recommended

4 Posted on 01 / 15 / 2011

Faboulous rastaurant, most vibrant in Bucharest! A bit expensive for Romanians, maybe fair prices for others (20 euro for soup+ 2nd plate+ dessert+ juice). Give it a try, best option in this city of hard meat eaters :( ...

Titus

Pros: Totally non-smoking, warm atmosphere , Very clean

delicious despite being healthy

5 Posted on 02 / 01 / 2010

i know few sane people think that anything healthy can taste nice without adding generous quantities of fat and salt, but this place proves that wrong. A really high quality menu with lots of options based on international cuisine, rather than Indian food as you night guess in an Aryavedic place like this.
Sadly they have compromised with people unhappy with the meat free menu and serve fish, such a shame, but in Romania its still pretty radical.
It is not expensive, however as there is so much cheap food in Romania, it might seem comparitvely pricey, but definately worth it.

Pros: Fantastic relaxing enviroment, Sooo healthy!, Delicious
Cons: fish.
