Don't do it - Edit

The cheap prices seem very attractive indeed, especially if you're a traveller on a budget. However you're more likely to lose energy from digesting the food than actually gaining anything nutritious, apart from shit loads of protein. The food was flavorless, too salty, bland, ... The staff was nice enough but that doesn't make up for feeding you what seems to be nothing more than microwaved leftovers from a couple of days ago. Absolute rubbish, even for junkfood.

Pros: Cheap, Friendly staff

Cons: Low quality food

Good vietnamese food - Edit

This place offers a lot of vegan options, however they also serve meat probably to attract more customers. The food is tasty and it's better compared to most asian bistros in town.

Pros: lots of vegan options, Reasonable prices

Cons: Also serves meat

Delighted and Disturbed at the Same Time - Edit

From my experience, Huy Vege has plant-based food of many different versions and usually of exceptional quality.
However I have always kind of hesitated to visit them because first of all, it's not a vegan restaurant and second of all, it's not even vegetarian (as both happycow page and THEIR DOOR SIGN states). For me, to serve various animal products, whether it's flesh, ova or milk, is all on the same page, morally.
However to state that you're a vegetarian place, and to serve animal flesh (and it's not like a recent change, they do so consistently probably not to lose customers) requires a very special kind of opportunism.

Come on. Serving flesh plus serving pure plants dishes, with nothing inbetween, doesn't make a restaurant a vegetarian one, anymore that being a vegan six days in the week and eating bacon on Sunday makes me a vegetarian.

And it's quite disturbing to dine next to people who eat animals.
I'd give Huy Vege four stars for their cuisine and charismatic staff, but have to take away two stars for this unacceptable "public relations" trick.

Pros: nice staff, quality vegan junk food , selection

Cons: labels "vegetarian" but serves flesh, very busy on workdays, unable to find seat

Satisfied - Edit

The place is just basic bistro, but food is good. I love how they can make veggies it the right asian way. It is bit oily and salty but the variety is wide and they are very nice people :) You can meet owner there all the time and he is vegan :)

MartinGraizely 25 Jan 2018 - He certainly isn't vegan, not even vegetarian. Pescatarian at best

Good and inexpensive bistro - Edit

Most food is vegan, including soup, tasty. It's classic vietnamese bistro style, you will get big portion for few euros (soup+meal+drink = I paid 6,50 eur), with good location and also near the train station (few bus stops).

Pros: prices, portions, location

Cons: serving also meat

Odd, but does the job - Edit

This is a very unusual restaurant in one particular respect. It's almost entirely vegetarian, offering 36 veggie dishes, but also around five with meat (if you don't speak Slovak or Vietnamese, the dishes each have numbers, so numbers 1-36 are safe for vegetarians).

If you're not bothered by the restaurant not being entirely meat-free, this is a very decent place. Decor is basic but cheerful fast-food-style, and the food is similarly simple, but there's a fair bit of variety. The location opposite the town-centre Tesco is very handy, and opening hours are longer than for the central vegetarian restaurants.

Pros: Good value, Central, Longer opening hours

Cons: Not fully veggie, Basic canteen
