Amazing vegan(!) Bavarian food - Edit

After looking for somewhere I could find some more local-style cuisine, I am so happy to have found this place! The food was absolutely delicious - I had the Pfanderl: seitan steaks, red cabbage, potato dumpling and beer gravy, followed by cherry and chocolate cake. There is also a large selection of beers (as well as cocktails). The staff were friendly and helpful.

I went on a Saturday evening and it was very busy - fortunately I was on my own so was able to sit at the bar, but otherwise would definitely recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment!

Pros: Great local cuisine, Generous portions, Fair price

Cons: Can get very busy - reservations advised

Awesome food! - Edit

I cant believe it took me this long to make it to Bohdi. I had avoided it for a bit because people said it was pretty unhealthy and everything was fried, but I didn't find this at all. Of course it's not the healthiest, but for a night out it was awesome!

The Asian burger was awesome, and the cauliflower wings were to die for.

I would for sure recommend

Pros: awesome food, reasonable prices

Poetry - Edit

I had probably the best burger I've ever had when in Bodhi. But let's start with the basics. Bodhi is a vegan restaurant placed a bit outside of the city centre, but close to where Oktoberfest is organised. They serve bavarian specialties and fast food stuff like burgers, and also offer a variety of drinks, including wines, beers and so on. The waiters were pleasant to be around, not overwhelming like at some places, and seemed really organised and knowing what they were doing. I ordered a full meal: a hot seitan burger, fries and salad, along with some Weizenbier. It was really a poetry of flavours, a ballet of spices danced along the juicy pieces of seitan, decorated with fresh vegetables, including neatly cut jalapenos. And the cheese sauce.... Oh my god, that cheese sauce!!! Really a perfect composition, it's a pity we discovered it on our last day in Munich, cause we would definitely have gone there again to try their vegan spatzle! If you are into vegan food and visiting Munich, you need to go to Bodhi, you will be blown away!

Pros: the food!, waiters

Cons: a tiny bit pricy, but worth it after all

incredible! - Edit

100% worth the trip out of the city centre! Wonderfully friendly staff, great atmosphere, perfectly sized menu. Extensive range of burgers or traditional Bavarian style food - I had the BBQ pulled jackfruit burger with country fries and spicy buffalo wings and it was one of the beat meals I've ever had! Go go go :) (take cash!)

Vegan food bavarian style - Edit

Bodhi is a very unique place as it offers traditional bavarian foods gone vegan. So you won´t have to miss all the wonderful hearty foods Bavaria is known for... starting with Keespatzn (the bavarian version of Mac and Cheese...just so much better) to a Soy schnitzel with Beer sauce, dumplings and red cabbage. If that is not your thing you can find a big selection of burgers as well, but I would stick to trying some of the bavarian dishes, they all taste exceptionally good. This is a place that is a must visit when coming to Munich.

Pros: Great traditional bavarian dishes, Great atmosphere, Fair prices

Cons: only accepts cash (latest info at time of posting), reservation recommended, only open for dinner, not lunch

Bad experience - Edit

I went to bodhi with my whole family and no one was really happy afterwards. They've run out of homemade lemonade, the bottle of wine my grandparents ordered, they didn't serve the "lupinenfilet" ( it was on a saturday evening btw, at a time a restaurant should still serve everything on their menu) and they forced my dad to pay for two drinks although he only asked for one.

The food was some of the worst vegan food I ever had.. They're using way too much fat, the "Sojaschnitzel" tasted like it had knots inside, the "Seitanburger" was too soft. For me it felt like nothing was really "homemade" by the restaurant. They just prepare ready-made food...

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Unfriendly staff, Average food

Hearty, Delicious Food - Edit

I loved my visit to Bodhi! It was a great chance to try some typically Bavarian dishes, though there are other things on the menu too. For starters we had some calamari and buffalo cauliflower, both of which were excellent. I had the kaseepatzn, which was essentially a big portion of creamy mac'n'cheese - actually, the portion was insanely huge! My partner tried the pfanderl, which was just amazing: two big soy steaks, a kind of potato dumpling, red cabbage and a beer gravy. It was really flavoursome. For dessert, we shared the kasierschmarrn, which was deep fried pancake shreds served with apple sauce - delicious! All portions were so hearty, I would recommend sharing the dessert.

The staff were really friendly, and it had a good pub atmosphere. If you want to try some veganised local dishes, this is definitely the place to go!

Pros: Huge portions, Exciting menu, Good grub

Always satisfied - Edit

We visited Bodhi a few times and were always extremely satisfied with the food and the friendly staff.

This is a perfect place to take not-yet-vegans for a dinner to show them what can be made out of plants.

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff

Cons: Sometimes a bit crowded

authentic Bavarian food vegan style - Edit

If you're visiting Munich, Bodhi is definitely a must go! They offer traditional authentic Bavarian food, 100% vegan! Try the Bodhi Pfanderl and also the very best vegan Mousse au Chocolat!

Pros: vegan Bavarian cuisine, best Mousse au Chocolat in town, rustique restaurant

Cons: sometimes service is not that attentive

Amazing - Edit

Food was delicious and amazing (try the soy schnitzel!) I'm currently backpacking and watching my budget but this was totally worth it (not so expensive, about €10-15 for a main) cocktails look delicious, we'll come back!

Just So Delicious!! - Edit

We came here for dinner on our first evening in Munich, as it opened quite late, and we wanted some hearty, filling food. We were not disappointed. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and spoke great English. Everything on the menu was tempting, but in the end I went for the tofu steak in beer gravy with red cabbage and a potato dumpling. It was outstanding - so tasty, rich and filling. I also had the homemade ginger lemonade, which packed a huge ginger punch and wasn't sweet or sugary at all. Really wanted to try the dessert recommended by a previous reviewer, but was far too full! Will definitely be going back. Price-wise, it was a bit more than we usually pay (15 euro for a main dish) but totally worth it because it was such good food. Warm, funky environment, with traditional Bavarian elements. Note: We liked it so much, went back a second time. Sat outside in the late evening sunshine, and had the 'cheesey' nuggets to start (yummy) and then the polenta fillets in the mustard crust. So tasty! Still too full for dessert though - next time!

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly staff, Funky vibe

One of the best places I've ever been! - Edit

I've been to a lot of vegan/vegetarian places all over the world but I have to admit that Bodhi in Munich is one of the best places you can go to have a delicious vegan meal.

Bodhi is located at Schwanthalerhöhe near to the Theresienwiese where Oktoberfest is celebrated each year. Due to its location in a quite calm street you can sit outside away from the traffic and enjoy the sunshine. The staff is very friendly and fast and the food: You'll hardly find any better!

I've been there several times now - almost each time I'm in Munich for work and each time it was just great. Friendly service, vegan food and everything sooooo delicious. Not only the seitangoulash with pretzel dumplings (best I ever had!) also the salads and soja schnitzels or the desserts are so delicious.

HIGHLY recommendable, doesn't matter if at lunch-time or in the evening and you won't regret anything ;)
If visiting in the evening I would recommend a reservation.

Pros: Best vegan food in town, Friendly and fast service, Good atmosphere and nice to sit outside

The most delicious "Rahmschwammerl" - Edit

Originally, we only wanted to check out Bodhi's vegan cocktails. Since the menu looked so good, though, we came back for dinner the next day. We were not disappointed!

We had "Käs"spatzn, country potatoes with two sauces and "Rahm"schwammerl. What was great was how the "Käs"spatzn seemed to have a homemade cheese sauce on them rather than just using melted store-bought vegan cheese. The crispy roasted onions that were on top were homemade as well. The country potatoes were made from fresh potatoes and the sauces (a barbecue ketchup and a vegan mayonnaise) seemed homemade as well. Nothing special, but tasty. All dishes were delicious but the "Rahm"schwammerl were definitely the best.
I still dream of it.

I wish I'd had more room in my stomach to try the Kaiserschmarrn but the portions of the mains were more than enough.

Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was very nice. Modern but cozy. Prices were fair, considering size of the portions and the effort put into making them.

Definitely recommended!

Pros: DELICIOUS food, Friendly staff, Fair prices

Bonus for being 100% Vegan - Edit

Pros - This restaurant to worth a visit bc it's 100% vegan and you can tell the kitchen staff prepare and present the meals with care. The waitstaff are friendly and accommodating. Menus are in German and English. There is a allergy list of ingredients (in German) but it's easy to figure out what's what.

My friend and I ordered (as mains) Baked Portabello and Soy Schnitzel. Both mains were delicious and beautifully present. We polished our plates clean!

Cons - We waited over 30 mins for our food in an almost empty restaurant and this restaurant was much more expensive then we had anticipated. (Submitted update re price).

The desserts we ordered (while beautifully presented) weren't tasty and neither of us could finish them. We left more then half on our plates. I wouldn't recommend the Coconut Lime mousse or the Kaiserschmarrn (German like doughnut). Both are very heavy and didn't sit well after such incredible mains.

Come support this restaurant by ordering a main dish and without time limits and you'll leave perfectly full and smiling

Pros: 100% vegan

Cons: slow to get food

okay, but nothing special - Edit

we came here in the hopes of eating vegan flammkuchen (which was on their website's menu), but they didn't have it. instead we had burgers that were okay, but nothing special at all.

Pros: friendly staff

Cons: a bit expensive, boring menu, small portions

love this place! - Edit

I love this place! The ambience is really nice and at evening it has more a pub feeling. The cocktails are very good and I was really happy I could drink a vegan piña colada! The dishes are creative and tasty. My favorite vegan restaurant in Munich so far.

Pros: vegan cocktails , creative menu , tasty food

Average. - Edit

Service was good. Food was bland and under seasoned. A bit over priced. I don't know why vegan food ever has to cost as much as it does in vegan restaurants.

Pros: vegan

Cons: cash only.

Would have expected more.... - Edit

The reviews sounded very good here and the official website of Bodhi's is also great. So we decided to dine there. We're used to the quality and taste of Max Pett and Gratitude. Compared to those, Bodhi is unfortunately not that tasty and yummy. We had different main meals and dessert. Respectively one meal and one dessert was absolutely tasteless. The staff is friendly there. The prices are definitely to high relating to that kind of quality of the dishes.

came hungry, left completely satisfied - Edit

The first time I was there, I ordered a Bhodi burger as main dish and a Kaiserschmarrn (cut-up and sugared pancake with raisins) as desert.
Both tasted great, both were plenty and I left very full.
We come here often, it's worth it to take omnivore friends there.

Pros: food, staff, choice

Cons: sometimes you have to wait

Good vegan restaurant - Edit

I have been to Bodhis many times since my first review. The food is good. I have liked everything i tried the last times I went, but a little more variety would be nice (half the menu is burgers). They have excellent homemade lemonade and some nice alcoholic beverages (try black Hugo). However, what still bothers me is that you have to wait really long for your food. We never leave there in under 2 or 2 1/2 hours. But vegan comfy food it still is on of our top choices in Munich.

Since I live in Munich, I always check out new vegetarian or vegan places to eat out. I was especially excited about the opening of Bodhi, because the reviews were so over-the-top. I've been there five or so times by now, and the experiences were very different each time. Some of the dishes are truly great (like the Käsespätzle or the Creme Brulee), but others are bland and boring. The service was very, very observant once, but absolutely inattentive the other times. Even when we were dining early and were the only customers the waitress ignored us for an entire hour and almost made us miss our theater show. Overall, the atmosphere is nice, but the prices are too high. I simply cannot recommend Bodhi without a VERY big BUT! because we were dissapointed by the service and food several times.
