Really nice lunch menu

Had the lunch menu, constisting of a muchroom soup, two small filled aubergine rolls, baked cauliflour with a pepper sauce, sweet potato chips and mashed potatoes and a piece of cake as a dessert.
Was really nice, especially for just 22€!

Cappucino was not the best, but certainly okay for 2€ with plant milk

Fantastic experience

We had the taster menu with the wine pairing and weren't disappointed.

It was nice to try a traditional Slovenian dish that had been veganised.

The best

We tried the 3-course lunch menu and then, also booked a table for dinner (6-course menu) the same day. The food is outstanding and worth every cent. Probably the best vegan food we ever had. 100% recommended

Pros: Food, Cleanliness, Atmosphere

Cosy atmosphere and tasty food

We had the following items:

1) Lunch menu (3 courses, 22€)
- Carrot & ginger soup
- Roasted cauliflower
- Meat ball & sweet potato mash
- Lemon cake with berry sauce

2) Carrot & ginger soup

3) Saraswati house curry

4) Mango lassi & Mango spinach smoothie

The soup was nice and very smooth, although the ginger taste was stronger than the carrot. I love ginger, but a better balance between the two flavours would have made it even better. (8/10)

The roasted cauliflower was accompanied by a parsley & pine nut pesto and a marinated cherry tomato. My wife loved this dish, and it was indeed very good. (9.5/10)

The (huge) meat ball was surprisingly good. That’s because it didn’t try to taste like meat. The chef obviously put in a lot of thought into making the taste of the meat ball stand out in the minimalist design of this dish. The sweet potato mash was smooth and creamy, but could have had a stronger sweet potato taste. (9/10)

The lemon pie was equally tasty. The berry sauce was strong and sweet, and complemented the pie very well. (9/10)

The Saraswati House Curry was copious and full of flavour. It came with basmati rice, avocado and a vegan yoghurt sauce (tzatziki?). My wife would have liked it a bit more spicy (personal preference). It surely filled us up! (9/10)

The mango lassi and mango spinach smoothie were both very nice: creamy, well-balanced tastes. (9.5/10)

There is a good reason why this restaurant has such good reviews. The food clearly shows the chef’s skill. The dishes excel in simplicity, diversity and taste.

Pros: Honest, flavourful dishes, Cosy atmosphere, Friendly waiter

Cons: None.

A great fully vegan dinner in this beautiful city. A good range of delicious options. I went for a local dish of sarme which was delicious. The restaurant is in a bustling area but set a little back in a courtyard. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

Pros: The range of delicious vegan options , Friendly knowledgeable service , Location

The food served at Gaudi&Naan is superb. I had the Saraswati house curry which came with avocado, black basmati, raita and banana leaf. It was delicious. All wines are local and also delicious. The staff are very knowledgable of the food they are bringing you and of the wines also. I would highly recommend visiting Gaudi&Naan when in Ljubljana.

Pros: Staff knowledge of food and wines, Location, The mix of foods and flavours

Cons: None

Very friendly staff and the food was really tasty. I had a grilled aubergine filled with mince and ‘mozzarella’ and it didn’t dissapoint. And not too expensive either, although it looks a bit more fancy.

Worth the cost

This place is pricey for Ljubljana (still cheap compared to the UK) but totally worth it! They offer traditional Slovenian dishes reimagined and veganised. Everything was fresh and delicious. Additionally, it is perfectly portioned and plated. Highly recommend reserving for dinner but you should be okay at lunch. It’s tucked away just off a Main Street so it’s not rammed with tourists nor is it crowded. Services was very helpful and explained the dishes, their origins and what to expect as you eat them. I also had a local white wine which was lovely.

Pros: 100% vegan, Impeccable service , Traditional Slovenian food options

Cons: Reservations recommended

Best dinner ever

We went there for dinner and had the 4 course tasting menu. Two starters, one main dish and dessert, we also had the wine pairing with it.
It is hard to put into words how incredibly delicious and smartly combined everything was. All the ingredients fall into place perfectly and make for a perfect experience.
I know I must sound crazy but we both were full of awe and love. Best food we ever had, not joking.
Make a reservation, go there, love it.
Also be prepared to spend quite some money, this isn’t high class fine dining but a lot like it.

Pros: Best and most delicious food, Attentive and very nice staff, Perfect overall concept

Cons: Bit expensive but still worth every cent

Pricey but so, so nicey

It’s the kind of restaurant where the waiter knows a lot about wine and will explain the ingredients of all the dishes to you. Great service and the food tasted beautiful. They were full the first time we tried to visit so I would definitely recommend booking!

Great for Special Occasion

Wonderful meal in a beautiful courtyard. Fully vegan. We had Pad Thai and Sarne both of which were delicious. They also do vegan steaks (juicy marbles) and a 5 or 6 course tasting menu.

Vegan mal anders

Wir folgten den guten Bewertungen und reservierten uns einen Platz für den frühen Abend.
Wir nahmen beide die 4-Gänge-Variante und waren zufrieden. Der Preis ist ok, es ist kein klassisches Restaurant oder ein Imbiss, ich denke man hebt sich hier durch Preisgestaltung/Produkt ab. Die Portionsgrößen der einzelnen Gänge sind eher klein, hungrig geht man dennoch nicht. Es hat gut geschmeckt.
Uns wurde alternativlos nur das Menü als 4- oder 6-Gang-Variante angeboten (mit oder ohne Weinbegleitung)- wir sahen jedoch das viele Einheimische auch einzelne Gerichte bekamen, oder eben doch was anderes. Kann man auf jeden Fall hingehen wenn der Geldbeutel es zulässt, man wird etwas Besonderes erleben!

Such a nice treat as a vegan to find a “fine” dining experience with such delicious food. Everything had the most amazing flavor. I got the pad Thai, which was a different take on ones I am used to but was still delicious. My wife got the butter chicken and WOW life changing. We also tried the cheesecake and the chocolate tart. They had a huge basket full of homemade bread they were hand slicing for tables also. 10/10 must try if you can get in. The staff was super sweet and we a got super lucky to call and get a table within 25 minutes. Luckily our hotel was a street down!

Pros: Delicious food , Friendly staff , High end feel, low end cost

Crazy good!

I haven’t had such good vegan food in a while. Everything was so well flavored, but all the dishes tasted different. The service was great, our kids also loved the food.
We came for lunch, sat outside in the sun and enjoyed this yummy vegan food! Go there!
