First Review by PudgyPanda

Strange in a good way - Edit

We saw some jiva advertising on the pavement so went there, hadn't realised it was a hare krishna place and purely burgers. It was good though, very quiet but friendly.

The menu options were a little confusing but we figured it out and got through the meal with the help of google translate as we had limited Russian skills...

The food was lovely and they were quite accommodating with fussy eaters. The non-vegans enjoyed it too. Cheesecake was amazing, but the cookies a bit 'healthy' tasting for my liking! Only real downside was the lack of coffee.

Pros: Delicious food, Nice build-your-own burger style, Good value

Cons: No coffee!, Focueed menu

super nice place - Edit

Super nice place with a good atmosphere . The burgers are quite unusual and you can choose all the ingredients by yourself . They have both vegan and vegetarian options, both are very delicious! It's worth trying!

Cosy restaurant with good burgers - Edit

You will have very nice vegetarian burgers here and the potatoes and fancy drinks are delicious too. If you are in a hurry, don't come here... this place is not "fast food", everything is a bit slow. But we liked it! The atmosphere in the very nice restaurant is great and relaxed. They play meditation or mantra music.

Pros: 100% vegetarian

Cons: a bit slow

Funky - Edit

Great place with a yoga studio beside it. Food was quick and tasty. I had the tofu burger. Lots of options to choose from. Cookies, while sweet, were a bit dry

Excellent burgers - Edit

Definitely exists! Bumped into this place by accident as I was heading somewhere with a friend and decided to go for a late lunch. There was a sign outside clearly pointing into the building, and they now have menus with an English translation on it, and our waitress spoke okay English and explained the menu. A large burger is two patties. Free water. Say if you're vegan. I'll definitely go back!

Pros: Good food, Cheap, Friendly waitress

This is the reason we will return to Petersburg! - Edit

Cool place with nice and really tasty vegan burgers - maybe the best vegan burger I have ever tasted so far. Friendly and nice staff even though only a little english is spoken. No english menus, actually no menus at all. Maybe hard to find find because there is only a one sign on the street and then you have to climb few floors up to find this place. I have also a gluten-free diet which is time to time a bit problematic in Russia but in this place it was easy to negotiate and the dish was tasty nonetheless it was made without bread. Totally worth visiting as friend put it after tasted the burger: "This is the reason why I will return to Saint-Petersburg!"

Pros: Super nice staff!, Cool interior, Gluten-free friendly

Cons: Hard to find

Scam - Edit

Whatever the ratings here say, don't go and try to find it. The place doesn't exist. Went to the address and asked literally everyone without results. Was really disappointed.

Delicious Veggie + Vegan Burgers! - Edit

By far the most delicious veggie and vegan burgers in the whole city (and maybe the country). The owners are Hare Krishnans who know how to use Indian spices very well.

Because of their relaxed atmosphere and home-feel they don't have menus, but ask you to build your own burger with the following options:

Bun options:
- tomato italian
- "yellow" with turmeric and lentil
- rye-wheat with flaxseed
- Indian with curry and cumin

Patty options:
- lentil
- chickpea
- bean
- buckwheat
- spinach
+ added cheese or tofu

Sauce options:
- vegan pesto
- vegan (raw) "mayonaise"
- sour cream with black salt (VEGETARIAN)
- tomato chutny
- sweet and sour

Also each burger comes with deliciously fresh veggies. Be sure to specify whether you're a vegan or a vegetarian!

P.S. They don't accept credit cards, so make sure you have some cash on you!

Pros: Completely unique burger experience, cheap and high quality, Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff

Cons: Don't accept cards for payment, Are tricky to find (second floor)
