There are much better fast food places in Berlin
Posted on 07 / 11 / 2013
I've regularly been to Yellow Sunshine about 2-3 times a year over the last years, which has much to do with the convenient location. The food quality is hit and miss. They frequently undercook/underfry their faux meats. My last two dinner and lunch experiences there were really bad. Last time, even though (being warned by previous visits) we specifically asked for our gyros and "chicken" burger to be well done, both were not well done, but rather soft and clearly underfried. The "chicken" patty also had a strange taste/smell, almost like artifical almond flavoring. I guess we should have returned the food or have asked for it to be redone, but then you don't want to complain all the time, and we were hungry. Big mistake. The food was not only unpleasant to eat, but also gave us upset stomachs for the rest of the day and on the next day. I honestly have a very robust stomach.
The side salads are rather bland, do not expect anything more than some lettuce/romana salad, some carrots which were grated a few hours ago, onion rings and some sprouts on top. Then again, this is a fast food placed after all, so one shouldn't be unfair and expect a gourmet salad.
If you want vegetarian/vegan fast food in Berlin, I would definitely recommend going to Vego Food World, which is much better quality. If you're looking for an alternative in the Wiener Straße vicinity, try "Rootz" - who have nice burgers, but often close around 7:30 pm though.
