We were on our way back from Essen to Saarbrucken and only had 2-3 hours in Cologne. We wanted to get a good meal instead of just getting something near the station. We found this place on HappyCow and I'm so happy we looked it up! The place was easy to find; a little away from the main station (40 min walk through a nice shopping streets) but very close from the city center, Rudolfplatz so by U-bahn it's less than 10 min to reach from the station.
We were overwhelmed with the variety of menu they had.. so sad that we were only 2 girls and couldn't really try out more menu.. We had our heart sat on curries and the owner/staff recommended the eggplant red curry (the others are mango curry and saigon curry with sweet potatoes and pumpkin) .. and it was absolutely the BEST curry I've ever had! Quite spicy so we really liked it but if you don't like spicy food you might want to ask them to make it milder (but don't skip it because of the spiciness!) Noodle salad was also good. The sauce was tangy and unique and veggies were served warm over lettuce and rice noodle.
Next time, I'll definitely try the vegan Pho and the hot pot.. and maybe the 'vegan duck' menu too. I can totally to to Cologne again (with more people) just to visit this restaurant!
The place is not so big but very cozy, clean and has a nice atmosphere. The owner/staff is also extremely nice and speaks very good English!Pros: Tasty food, Kind staffs & cozy atmosphere, Big portion
Cons: ...uh...too many options to choose from?
