This is one of the worst places that I have ever visited. I had seen this on happycow, but as there were no reviews, I decided that I would not bother trying it even before I had arrived in Vienna. However, on one of my days walking around the city, I had seen this place, looked at the menu, and decided to go into the eatery (I don't know how to describe this place but it is definitely not a restaurant!).
The place looked good, colours were bright and the menu sounded lovely, although quite expensive, even for Austrian standards. All looked inviting so we decided to give it a go. We were greeted by two very friendly guys. However, this is where all the good ended.
We were given two sheets of paper disguised as a menu. You can get the menu in a few languages. There was not much of a selection on the menu and there is a good bit of meat. After waiting a good while, we realised that we had to go up to the counter, to order, to pay, and to collect our food from the counter ourselves. Considering the outrageous prices, this was ridiculous.
Then came the dinner. What a disgrace! What a shame! What a waste of money! What a waste of time. What a disaster! What outrageous robbery! We were served basically 'rabbit-food', with about 5 beans, 5 peanuts, 10 miniscule pieces of tofu, and 4 lettuce leaves with sesame oil. And that is no exaggeration. My partner ordered another thing, but got what looked like exactly the same thing but with chicken replacing tofu by the same proportions. My partner tried both our dishes and said both tasted the exact same. It took me about two minutes to finish this hugely expensive 'snack'(because it definitely wasn't a meal!). It actually make me feel more hungry than I originally was. I actually went for a pizza after it....and I hate pizza....but I needed to fill my stomach.
My stomach was angry with me for feeding it such rubbish. My partner and my brain were just as angry with me for paying a whopping €50 for this rubbish. Never again. Even for Austria, a very expensive country, this was hugely abusive of prices.
I detest when people abuse vegetarism or so-called health foods and use it as an excuse to be mean and lazy with their food preparation. This is one of many times I had went out with my partner, who is not a veggie, and once again I was embarrassed by trying to support veggie-friendly places.
Do not go to this place unlike you have got the stomach of fly and are flash with money. I felt I was robbed.
Hugely expensive, Miniscule meals, All foods taste the same.
