I've been there for a lunch-break once (I usally visit the sattgrün at graf-adolf-platz now) it is has a nice quarter atmosphere compared to the one at graf-adolf-platz. You can choose between a big and a medium plate(6.90€) - for lunchtime the medium plate is really enough for me and you can choose between, I think, 8 meals (or mix'em)which all taste really great! I was there at 1 pm, I immediately had a place but I'guess that a group would have to wait a little bit at that time to find places at one table, as it quite crowdy.

Pros: good value, variety
Cons: small place

Real food

I was in Dusseldorf for a day, and had 2 more free days which I didn't know how to spend. After eating at Sattgruen, I decided to spend both days in Dusseldorf because I wanted to eat there again (and also because I knew there are good vegan places in Cologne, which is only 30 minutes by train from Dusseldorf).

The food is not amazing, it's simply good. They could be more generous with the Tofu in some of the dishes. But what I liked so much about it was that it felt like home-made food. After a week living almost only on vegan pizza, hamburgers and French Fries, it was great to find a vegan place with pasta, rice, quinoa and potatoes. And it wasn't boring ordinary pasta, rice and all, but delicious dishes with interesting sauces and a lot of vegetables in them.

It was a good feeling to eat varied delicious food. Of course, to balance the relative healthiness of the food, I also tried a cake, chocolate with cherries - And I took the same cake in my next 2 meals there. And also in a special visit I made only in order to eat the cake.

Obviously, the workers there are very nice and helpful, and the atmosphere is good. It's not a surprise that there are always many people there.

The prices are cheaper for lunch than for dinner (If I remember correctly, it's 7.90 Euro for big plate at lunch and 11.90 for dinner). Although the place is open from 12:00 to 00:00, the buffet is available between 12:00 to 16:00 and 18:00 to 22:00.

Pros: Variety of food, Good value, Nice people

My husband and I went to this restaurant in October last year to celebrate our 3rd wedding annyversary and it was completely worth it. This restaurant is not in the main downtown of Duesseldorf but instead you have to take a metro that leads you to the neighbourhood where it is but it doesn't take more than 5 minutes. After walking 4 or 5 blocks from the station there you are at Sattgruen.
It's a very cosy, small, buffet restaurant with soft jazz and chilled out music on the back. The buffet works like this: you can choose between small/medium size dishes (6 euros) or big dishes (10 euros). The buffet offers a big variety of vegan and vegetarian meals, soups, deserts and salads. The food is utterly delicious and one can taste that it was made with love :-) We had a big dish and filled it with I don't remember what anymore but everything was tasting amazingly good, and we also had a sweet potatoes with coco milk or something like that cream soup together with very tasty and fresh home made bread, hmmm!
I can't think of that many negatives points, maybe the only thing would be that the place it's small and therefore is a little bit hard to reach the buffet and balance the tray with the dishes back to your seat, but that would be it.
Totally worth it! :-D

Pros: big variety of food (buffet), chilled out, excellent atmosphere, delicious, fresh meals
Cons: rather small, away from the main downtown

My wife and myself were there last night for the first time. There was such a wonderful warm and welcoming atmosphere, and the excellent friendly owner came to us and explained everything that was available and also some very good shopping tips. The food is Vegan only and is in buffet form. The price for a large plate full was 12EUR and really got the taste buds going, very tasty.
We will definitely be going there again.

Pros: non-smoking, wonderful staff, large portions
