Delicious nutritious food

5 Posted on 05 / 15 / 2014

Absolutely worth eating there! :) My sister and I had a wonderful lunch there :) Big choice of everything a vegan heart desires! The price depends on the weight of the food but it's absolutely fair.

I've nothing bad to say :)

Pros: fair prices, big choice, great taste

The food is great, but the deserts even more, so veganlicious! Had to come there a lot even if I hardly had any money.

Pros: Delicious deserts, Food and ambience looks good, Clear what is vegan (labels)

A+++++

5 Posted on 04 / 17 / 2014

My absolute favorite vegetarian restaurant in the world. I never leave without being terribly stuffed, because I just have to try EVERY VEGAN THING from the buffet. Also, try the grain coffee with soymilk (and pumpkin spice syrup)! yum. :)

Pros: lots of variety, good labeling, excellent desserts
Cons: a bit crowded around lunch time, literally no other cons., really.

My favouritest restaurant ever

5 Posted on 01 / 22 / 2014

Yes, it's a buffet, but the food is gourmet and the most delicious I have ever tasted. There are so many vegan dishes that, if I only take a tablespoon of each, I end up with a full plate (and I always want to try everything that is vegan). Very few of the dishes aren't vegan and they're labelled as such. Every day there are a few Indian options, many Austrian and some Mediterranean dishes. I especially love their mushroom dishes. The cakes are delicious, but quite expensive. Drinks are expensive as well (which goes for the whole Austria), but a glass of water costs €0.20 with free refills (water is flavoured with apple, cucumber, carrot, and orange slices, mint leaves etc.).

Pros: delicious, hearty, comfort food, delicious cakes, friendly staff
Cons: quite pricey, especially the cakes

Wer Buffets mag wird es hier lieben

5 Posted on 12 / 04 / 2013

Das Konzept ist schnell erklärt: Schnapp dir einen Teller, bewege dich rund um das Buffet und nimm was das Herz / der Magen begehrt. Der Preis ergibt sich aus dem Gewicht des Tellers. Sich täglich ändernde Gerichte lassen keine Langeweile aufkommen.

Die Qualität der Speisen ist beeindruckend konstant. Es gibt veganes, vegetarisches und etwas zwischendrin. Alle Gerichte sind markiert zB als vegan, mit Laktose, mit Soja etc. Ideal für alle Menschen mit Nahrungsmittelunverträglichkeiten.

Wer das Buffet hinter sich hat, kommt nun zum schwierigsten Teil: die Kuchentheke. Auch hier lächeln einem veganen Köstlichkeiten an. Zum Abschluß noch einen Getreidekaffee und man verabschiedet sich mit einem breiten Grinsen im Gesicht.

Empfehlenswert: täglich wechselnde indische Gerichte

Habe schon oft dort gespeist und bin noch nie enttäuscht worden.

Wer gerne noch weitere Infos zum Ginko hätte, wird auf meiner Website (siehe Profil) fündig. Einen Bericht mit Bildern gibt es dort.

Enjoy !

Nice Place

It's a nice vegetarian/vegan Place there. It's a Self-Service menue and it's very low-priced. Nothing special but a nice place for a quick meal.

Great place

5 Posted on 05 / 07 / 2012

A buffet format where you select from a wide range of hot and cold foods and pay by weight. The food quality at Ginko is very good indeed. Most items were vegan and very clearly marked. Great selection of desserts - the vegan tiramisu was one of the nicest luxury cream cakes I have ever had. Clean and reasonably spacious premises a quick and safe walk from the centre. So good we ate here on two of our nights rather than exploring the surprisingly wide choice of vegan alternatives in this lovely city.

Pros: Food quality, Vegan cream cakes

Amazing food, nice location, great atmosphere

5 Posted on 10 / 19 / 2010

As most people have already talked about important aspects like the amazing food (especially the cakes, mjumm..), the prices (cheap for healthy & good food like this), the staff (very friendly), I want to point out another aspect: I really like that Ginko is a place, which is frequented by a wide range of all kinds of people.. You, of course, see a lot of young people/students there, but there are also old people eating as well as whole families with many children. This bunch of different people creates a really nice and cosy atmosphere.

also raw

Ginko is maybe not the most romantic dine option, but the food is excellent, mainly vegan including raw options in the form of a good salad selection. Prices are very reasonable, service (in english) and atmosphere also great. No complaints at all!

Pros: raw options, tasty food, friendly staff

Great place to bring Non-veggies...

4 Posted on 07 / 31 / 2010

I was very pleased with this restaurant - I had promised to take my family for a good Vegetarian lunch, and had my fingers crossed that this place would live up the good reviews here...The buffet selection is great, with mostly Vegan dishes and a good mix of european, indian, and salad dishes. Everyone piled their plates high, and polished everything off happily. The Cake selection is a Vegan dream come true - we decided to get a few and share them so we could taste them all: Chocolate-Banana Split Muffin, Tiramisu, Apple Streusel Cake & Berry Cake Slice. All were delicious! There is outdoor seating, which is great for summertime, and the staff all speak some English. For 5 people (plates piled high, and 5 desserts) the bill totalled EU 50, which really isn't bad for a good, healthy & tasty meal! Would definately go here again...might even consider moving to this city just for those Vegan desserts!

Pros: great selection, cheap, amazing desserts
Cons: self-service

The place to be in Graz

5 Posted on 02 / 12 / 2010

A little hidden and so not quite easy to find for foreigners, Ginko, for vegans & vegetarians, is the place to be in Graz.

Variety of food @ the self service buffet is good and changes every day. Vegan meals are labeled. Food is payed by weight. Coming to drinks, there's also a great assortment You can pay 20cents for a glass and get yourself as much water as you want, or you take different kinds of self-made juices and other drinks.

For dessert, you can choose one of the amazingly tasting vegan cakes that are really more than worth their prize and have a fair-trade coffee with soymilk.

Best thing about ginko is the friendly and familiar athmosphere. Staff is really nice and willing to give you further infos about the food. I don't just like to go there to have my meal and leave again, i really like to sit down for two hours ore more and have a good time with my friends.

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly athmosphere, Vegan desserts
Cons: Kinda hard to find

confusing buying process but good food nontheless.

4 Posted on 07 / 17 / 2008

Good range of choice that is paid for by weight. The food tasted good and buffet format allowed you to pick all your favorite bits. Was really good to see fairtrade products available although as non-austrians the buying process was unclear and we had no idea how much the meal was going to cost before we got to the checkout.

a bit hard to find but fantastic food

5 Posted on 03 / 25 / 2008

he had some problems to find it, but its worth the search!! its a self service restaurant, and at the end your food is scaled. all the different dishes are marked if they are vegan or vegetarian. They have great vegan cakes, and for the water you pay 20 cent and then you can re-fill as often as you want!!! I inspired my "carnivore" boyfriend for vegan food. he loves the food there as much as i do

really nice

5 Posted on 03 / 02 / 2008

For me as a vegan ginko is really good. The got every day vegan stuff and sometimes everything. Try the vegan cakes, they are awesome!(you dont get this good cakes anywere else)Its a self getting restaurant, what is really cool because you can choose what you want. service is very friendly and speaks english.They dont use microwave, and they only use gas-heating that doesnt destroy energie of the food. The ambient is super nice with music and atmosphere is good.You can also choose fresh made juices and coffee (fair trade) is also tasty and you can get it with soyamilk.Everyday they got also indian food and also food alround the world. Big salad-buffet. Food costs 1,10 Euro per 100g, so around 5 euros. Lots of food is biological too. For every vegan it is THE Restaurant in graz.

Pros: excellent food, non smoking, good value
Cons: midday much people (go there after 2 pm)

kind of really nice place

5 Posted on 11 / 09 / 2007

Well food is awesome. Especially the way staff puts accent on supporting Vegan food. I was more than twice eating there when they had whole buffet completely vegan.
Cappuccino is one of the best I ever tasted and I collected experience of cappuccinos in almost every bigger European town.
For me, by far the best thing are the vegan cakes, which I must say are more than good. Lots of different cakes, and all are really on high level.

Pros: very much vegan food, selection of soja coffes & teas, vegan cakes
