First Review by YACHT

Fine for a quick meal - Edit

We weren't overwhelmed by this place, but it wasn't bad. There's a good selection of salad options and a few different curries, but the hot food was all lukewarm, and things you'd expect to be hot, like pakora, were cold. It wasn't bad though! Nice staff.

pretty cheap - Edit

The quality of the food is average but the quantity and the price make this place a pretty good deal if you want to eat a lot and quickly.

Pros: Price

Excellent food and price - Edit

The value for money here is really exceptional, the the staff is super friendly, and I love the food (it has an Indian twist). If you find that the restaurant is packed when you arrive but the weather is nice, consider getting take away (you fill take away container at the buffet yourself) and eating in one of the nearby squares. Regardless of what you decide, you likely won't be disappointed.

Pros: Food is excellent, Excellent value for money, The staff is super friendly

Cons: Sometimes it gets too packed to get a table

unpretentious, simple, useful - Edit

This place is quick, cheap, and just the thing you're looking for in some situations.

It's essentially an all-you-can-eat Indian buffet. The dishes are mixed in their flavor and spice; nothing I had was overly bland, but nothing blew me away, either. But if you're hungry, need to load up on food, or just want to get seated and eating quickly (e.g., on a busy travel day, or when traveling with a small child), it's hard to beat. The buffet is fairly broad (salad, appetizers, mains, soups, …). Plus the price is extremely reasonable.

I can imagine that if you go at the wrong time you're eating something that's been sitting atop a heater for a long time, and that can get pretty awful. I may have been fortunate to go when food was being freshly prepared and brought out. Still, this place doesn't pretend to be fancy or have airs about being vegetarian. It's solid and unpretentious. That can be a relief to a veg traveler in Europe.

The location is also great (though you may need a bit of help taking the right exit out of the Baixa-Chiado metro): central, well-connected, and close to public transit, all good things for a visitor.

In some other European cities, this would be a 5*. In Lisbon, which now has several veg options, I'm giving it a 4*. Still, there's nothing wrong with it at all. Could easily see returning (and very nearly did).

Pros: good variety on buffet, very reasonable price, quick, easy, central

Cons: food can be somewhat bland, buffet means the food could be a bit old

satisfying - Edit

This place is great if you want to eat loads of food as a lot of the vegan options in Lisbon have quite small portions. Thought it tasted delicious and there was a quick turnaround so you didn’t have to wait long for a table. Not fancy but tasty. Juice was delicious.

Overall Acceptable - Edit

The food is good but it seems like everything tastes the same and doesn't really have a lot of flavour. The buffet for dinner is a little expensive for what you get, 9.50€ for the buffet without any drink or dessert included seems a bit much.

Pros: Everything is vegan., Cheap lunch.

Cons: The place has a canteen sort of look which isn't v, The dinner is expensive for what you get., The food is a bit bland.

Easy restaurant - Edit

This restaurant really is an easy place to eat lunch. The buffet of salads and warm dishes is quite nice (could be more choice for the warm dishes). It is located in the centre and is very easy to access. The restaurant in itself is very canteen-like but still looks rather nice. Very affordable aswell.

Pros: Affordable, Good location, Good portions, as it is a buffet

Cons: Lack of choice for the warm dishes, Not the most beautiful restaurant ever

Best deal in Lisbon - Edit

This buffet is extremely cheap and amazingly good. You can choose between different vegetables and more cooked foods like pasta, rice, pakora, seitan meatballs, lasaña, baked aubergine and so on. There is also a soup. And everthying of it for just 9,5€ at the evening (7,5€ at noon). Desserts and beverages must be paid separately but they are very cheap too.

Maybe it is not the fanciest place in Lisbon, but still it is the best deal you can find.

Pros: very abundant, cheap

Cons: decoration

Pretty good - Edit

This buffet was pretty good. The food was not super flavorful and some stuff was in bowls with saran wrap just kinda peeled off it, so it didn't feel as fresh as other places. Not necessarily super hot food or flavorful. It's all vegan though, including the desserts, which is awesome and rare to find. Friendly service.

Pros: All vegan, Vegan desserts, Friendly service

Cons: Not super flavorful

Good little vegan buffet - Edit

Once you get over the very canteen style of the place you get a good little vegan buffet at a very affordable price. The dishes are fresh and tasty, you can get your greens there but don't expect a fancy dinner. We would go back again for a quick all vegan lunch anytime.

Pros: Cheap for all you can eat Fresh all vegan food, A lot of locals were eating there, The staff speak English

Cons: Very canteen style buffet, Not a lot of option in hot dishes

Good selection and popular - Edit

We came here after our first choice of restaurant was closed and we were glad we did. The lunch buffet was seven euros and there was a good selection of cold and hot vegan dishes. We were there on a Sunday and it got really busy just before 1:00 so try to get there earlier.

vegan buffet - Edit

Primarily indian food in a certain range of dishes. We had a fast dinner in a crowded restaurant and it was absolutely ok. The interior was more or less functional, the service seemed to be a little stressed, but remained friendly and helpful. Attractive price/performance ratio.

Very nice - Edit

I've been here a few times, the food is nice, the desserts are amazing and it's not too expensive. The staff was friendly, however I found it hard sometimes to communicate to some of the staff members as they struggled with both portuguese and english.
I only wish they could find a more Eco-friendly alternative to plastic wrap as I saw a lot being used!

Updated from previous review on 2017-09-14

Pros: Nice food, Great vegan cakes, Good price

Cons: A lot of plastic wrap being used!

bleh - Edit

Food is lukewarm, and tastes like it has been sitting there for a while, plus it's a very bland no spice Indian food. Having been living in the Bay Area, I know a lot of restaurants that offer vegan options and spice their foods with Indian flavors well. Here, it really missed it.

There's no label containing allergens. If you ask them for info on ingredients because if allergy to hemp, nuts, soy or gluten, they have no clue. It's an easy place to get sick for the celiac people.

3 stars because the staff is friendly and there are plenty of options.

Pros: several dishes, vegan place, friendly staff

Cons: lukewarm, bland food, no gluten free or allergen labels or knowledgeable, not a lot of gluten free options

Amaaaazing food! - Edit

Stopped by here with my boyfriend who isn't even vegan. He loved the food and so did I! We ended up eating almost 3-4 plates from the buffet since we were starving. Highly recommend it, the staff were kind and professional as well!

Basic, cheap and quick - Edit

The restaurant is ideally located near the Baixa-Chaido subway station which is the cultural center of Lisbon.
The all you can eat buffet presents lots of healthy food with salads and vegetables and some heavier indian main courses that are quite tasty. The dessert are also very good, we had a vanilla chocolate cheesecake and the juices are fresh. It's quite cheap (7,5€ for lunch and 9,5 for dinner) but it's the kind of place where you eat and wanna leave as fast as you can. Depending on the day you're going, the staff can be adorable or quite cold, which will change your overall experience.

Pros: All is Vegan , Cheap and ideally located, Many options in the buffet

Cons: Very basic, Noisy , Staff can be cold

over rated - Edit

First time following a Happy Cow recommendation and will be the last - thought it was rubbish here - bland version of Indian food served lukewarm. Better to just go to an Indian restaurant and order something vegan - it will be better. Only positives really were it was cheap and vegan.

Pros: cheap

Cons: food not good, poor food hygiene practices (buffet

Would always come back - Edit

Great food, really cheap and lovely staff. Their cakes are amazing, you have to try them (even though you have to pay extra).
Only downside was the cafeteria like atmosphere, but as a solo traveller totally acceptable.

Pros: price, choice of dishes, location

Cons: atmosphere
