Alaunstr. 47, Dresden, Germany, 01099

Serves meat, vegan options available. This Vietnamese food restaurant advertises a separate vegetarian menu but it is not fully veg. Staff doesn't speak English, so be sure to point to the veg menu. Open Mon-Sun 11:00am-11:00pm.

First Review by Oller Mauser

nice place serving mostly mock meat - Edit

Very nice original atmosphere and lovely staff working there. All shakes and lassis can be made vegan and there's an entire menue for vegans. Most dishes contain mock duck, mock chicken or shrimp, which is nice to try out. If you're looking for more healthy, fresh dishes you should maybe look for another place.

Pros: entire menue for vegans, mock meat (mostly seitan), cheap

Cons: food is a bit greasy

Not convinced yet... - Edit

We started off with a little communication error wich ended up with us having the wrong starter, but we didn't mind it that much so we just ate the "shrimps" instead. The food however was ok, but I wouldn't say great, lots of mock meat if that's your thing. Judging on the other reviews they maybe just had a bad night, but I wasn't really convinced by it. Portions were big and they definitely​ had an authentic feel to the place though...

Tasty mock meat - Edit

We went there after hiking in saxony switzerland and ordered one dish with vegan duck, one with tofu/wan tan and a fried (battered) shrimp dish. The vegan duck and the shrimp was amazing! It really tasted like real thing but in a pleasant way. The vegetable part of two main dishes were ok but tastes like typical "Asian (rather Chinese than Vietnamese)" restaurants in Europe and had a strong taste of bamboo shoots so if it's not your thing (like for me), it isn't very special. Also the wan tan dish was supposed to be with peanut sauce but I couldn't taste any peanut. Would go back again when we are in Dresden though and try ordering pho or a soup with wan tan (couldn't find it on the menu though) and the shrimp/duck again. The price is cheap, the portion is Huge and food came out quicker than we thought. Oh and they had a separate no-meat (vegetarian) menu!

Pros: Good mock meat (duck and shrimp we tried), Big portions, cheap price, Fast and good service

Cons: Vegetable part tasted more generic, Cash only

life saver!! and oh so good! - Edit

passed this on a stroll through Dresden and came back rather late at night (11pm) after leaving a concert. we asked whether there was any chance we could still order food - and the owner(?) told us it'd be ok if we were alright with take-away. so glad we did - I haven't had proper wan-tan ever since turning vegetarian, I think. and these were oh so good!!
My friend and I also had some veggie dish with mok chicken. ugh. insanely tasty! i never know how asian places do this, but it was incredibly convincing. the veggies were ok, I'm not a huge fan of bamboo as I always feel everything cooked with it tastes of it, but I'd definitely come back whenever back in this beautiful city!
Also, the location is amazing and a not-to-miss area in Dresden! I liked that there's seperated menu for veg/meat so you can be sure that you can actually choose anything and still be on the safe side ;)

Pros: variety & choice, location & service, taste!!! & price

Vegan Duck!! - Edit

I can't believe that we've been living in Dresden for over a year and only recently discovered this place. The vegan/vegetarian menu is separate and huge. The vegan duck is so delicious. They also have Pho, which is not easy to to find vegan in many places, so I'll be trying that next time. The mint tea is also really good, as it comes with orange and lemon slices.

Pros: Vegan duck, affordable, menu is huge!

Cons: cash only
