Delicious Fine Dining - Edit

Finding a place that has fine dining as a vegan can be quite difficult but not in Berlin. Lucky Leek is as upscale as you can get. We even dressed fancy to visit, which seemed a bit silly when we got there and everyone was dressed in jeans and t-shirts. Oh well.

The food was scrumptious. There were so many unusual flavours on one plate and we all appreciated the effort. Unfortunately we went for the cheaper 3-course option but were pleased to be surprised by a shot glass of pea soup and a spoonful of grilled tofu as a pre-appetiser that wasn't listed on the menu. It was gorgeous and presented beautifully.

The only complaint is that I would have loved to have choose from the menu which starter I had, which dessert and which main. I understand that the five-course meal be more expensive, but why the difference? It should be either one set menu with extra dishes for the five-course or a menu you can pick and choose from. I liked the sound of the five-course menu starter more than the three-course one but upgrading wasn't in our price range. Other than that I felt like Lucky Leek was well worth the money if you like fine dining.

Pros: Fine dining, delicious food, complex flavours

Cons: set menu, you get what you're given, expensive

amazing! - Edit

Even with all the positive reviews I read before going here, I was truly amazed by the menu. We had the 5-course menu, which was quite a lot of food, bit I just wanted to try as much as possible! All courses were exciting, original and just very good. Loads of veggies, with some seitan/tofu/tempeh. Just perfect.

A very nice vegan 3 course dinner! - Edit

A very nice gourmet vegan restaurant. We had the 3 course menu with wine which was very good! The atmosphere was nice and the staff very friendly and professional! I can definitely recommend this restaurant!!

Herausragend!!! - Edit

Wo es das beste vegane Essen in Berlin gibt? Hier natürlich!!! Das Menü ist bisher immer großartig gewesen. Eine überraschende Expedition für jede einzelne Geschmacksknospe. Für die Augen ein Fest und für mich nach jedem Abend im Lucky Leek ganz klar: Ich komme wieder!

Pros: Das beste Restaurant in Berlin!, Tolle Weinbegleitung, nicht verpassen.

Fabulous Food! - Edit

I was really looking forward to Lucky Leek and wasn't disappointed. We had the 3 course menu which came with an amuse-bouche.
Everything was beautifully presented with lovely flavour combinations and texture contrasts. The portions sizes were just right so we felt full but not stuffed. Every course seemed to have lots of different parts to it so we felt we had eaten many more than just 3 courses.
We had a hot pea soup with cucumber salsa to start, followed by beetroot risotto, courgette parcels and vegan feta. The dessert was made up little tastes of ice cream, chocolate, fresh fruit and nut cake.
I went with an omnivore friend who kept saying how delicious everything was and what good value.
I would definitely go when I'm in Berlin again - I'll have the 5 course option next!
There is quite a peaceful atmosphere, we loved the vertical moss wallhangings.

Decent dining - Edit

We had high hopes coming here, having read other Happy Cow reviews recommending this restaurant highly, but ended up quite disappointed.

We had the 5-course menu. Our over all impression was that this restaurant tried hard to be "fine dining" but didn't reach all the way. Putting a bunch of small courses together in a fancy way doesn't make it fine unless they're actually well cooked, and some of them just weren't. The main course was too messy, so many things we're going on there and they didn't really go all that well together. Flavours were nothing out of the ordinary, and some dishes were not cooked well, for example lentils and some vegetables were not cooked soft (note: not just "al dente" but actually not done). potato roullade was over-whipped and hence had a glue-like texture, the deep fried lentil ball was too "starchy".
All in all, the food was decent and would have been ok at a basic restaurant but since Lucky Leek has the ambition to be a fine dining place it was disappointing.

About the service, it was ok - one of the waiters was very nice and helpful but the other seemed bothered by our presence even though the restaurant was not very busy that night. He only barely presented the food and answered questions very briefly.

Pros: Bell pepper soup with pumpkin ball was delicious., Fully vegan!, The wine was tasty.

Cons: Flavours and cooking were basic and ordinary., Semi-poor service

Gourmet, but very unaccommodating - Edit

We reserved on the website, and only could get a table at 8:30 PM, but when we got there, the place was quite empty, so that was a bit strange. We would have liked an earlier hour. And, if we had an earlier hour, we would have left and found someplace else to eat, because the menu is very limited and I had very little to eat. There are two fixed menus. I told the waiter that due to health reasons I must restrict the carbohydrates that I eat and asked what he recommended. He was not at all nice. Rather than to suggest which courses might be the best, he just said "everything has carbohydrates - either potatoes or grain" etc., and if I wanted something special I would have had to let them know several days in advance. I asked if he could make a plate with some of the items from different dishes, and he said it is not possible. Though the food is quite gourmet and what I tasted was good, and it was served very nicely, and the ambiance very nice, the restaurant must learn to accommodate people who might have some eating restrictions. Due to the late hour (the service was not speedy, so after getting menus, which required asking for some explanations, it took a while before a waiter bothered to come back to us), we didn't leave and I ordered only a main dish because everything had either potatoes or grain or some other carbohydrates, and my main dish (there was only a choice of two) was risotto - also a grain, and white rice, at that, but I thought there would be grilled vegetables, as in the description . As it turns out, there were just a few slices of roasted vegetables. And who would guess that "radishes vinnaigrette" consists of about a spoonful of very finely shredded radishes?? At an accommodating restaurant (and I've been to many, though not in Germany) the wait staff would say "it might take a few more minutes, but we should be able to put together something for you". They could have made me a plate with more grilled vegetables - I suggested that - and some of the mushrooms from a different dish, and some of the "cheese balls" or whatever they were, without the risotto. They must make the roasted vegetables separately before they put them on top of the risotto so I can't see why they could not have done something like that. Do they count out exactly how many zucchini slices they need per main dish and not have any extra? They were most unaccommodating. Also, they have an 80 Euro minimum to use a credit card, and, since I did n

Pros: Gourmet vegan, nice ambiance

Cons: very expensive, very limited menu, very unaccommodating

Amazing vegan fine dining - Edit

This restaurant visit was so cool for us not having had the ability to experience fine dining like this since we went vegan. We took a 3 course meal á 33€, this also included an extra small appetizer. Food was amazing, the staff was extremly nice and professional and it felt really luxorious. The selection of vegan cheeses for dessert was to die for!

lucky leek - Edit

Me and my girlfriend went to Lucky Leek whilst in Berlin for 1 week. We thought it would be nice to see what vegan fine dining is like, it is clear to say it most definitely wasn't for us. Extremely overpriced, although the dishes looked amazing, portion sizes were very very small. Very pretentious, can't imagine people of a laid back nature would feel comfortable here. I paid €3.40 for a mango juice, less than half a pint, which was poured out of a carton.

Pros: dishes looked nice

Cons: price , portion sizes , atmosphere

Achievement unlocked: featured in the Happy Cow Cookbook - Edit

This is one of the international restaurants featured in the Happy Cow Cookbook. It was fantastic. We had a delicious three course meal with some traditional German fare, wurst, potato salad, dumplings revamped with vegan flair. It was culinary artistry. The restaurant is located in a quaint part of town and has a relaxing atmosphere the encourages savoring dining. A lovely experience!

Simply wonderful - Edit

Wow… what to say about Lucky Leek, without sounding like some mad fan?

Well, it's brilliant. The service, the food, and the décor were all top-notch, yet friendly and accessible at the same time.

One thing we were worried about was that 'posh' places like this often serve tiny portions, however our worries were unfounded, as we left feeling full and satisfied.

The menus looked like they were rigid and set, but we could in fact order what we wanted from either the three-course or the five-course menu (I think the 'set' menus are just suggestions).

The prices are at the higher end of the Berlin scale, but it's worth it as an occasional treat. I'm sure Londoners wouldn't even blink at the prices.

In short – go to Lucky Leek!

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly service, Classy but comfortable setting

I ate here only once with my father - it's a special memory.
The food is carefully put together - it's a true treat!

Cons: Pricey-ish

Gourmet Deliciousness - Edit

This is a gourmet vegan restaurant. My spouse had the five course vegan meal and I the three course vegan meal. It was delicious, inventive, and served with visual appeal. It is so wonderful to go to a restaurant and know that everything is vegan. It was a casually chic place and one could go there to celebrate an event or just go casually. Although some might find it expensive, when you think of the gourmet quality of the food, it is not. My spouse's main dish was a seitan medallion (that seemed to mimic a "filet mignon," but of course without the cruelty) and my main meal seemed to mimic a "beef bourguignon" (again though, cruelty free). The desserts were small tidbits of deliciousness, cakes, truffles, sorbet and so forth. The wait staff was friendly. Do reserve though, it is easy to do on-line.

Pros: Upscale, Beautifully presented, Delicious

Cons: Must reserve

Great staff - Edit

We made a reservation in advance, but unfortunately we were confrontated with some problems concerning the table decoration. But the staff made everything to feel us welcome and to please us. We had a raw vegan 5 course dinner and it was that amazingly delicious! Thanks for everything!

Lieblingsrestaurant - Edit

Mein absolutes Lieblingsrestaurant! Wir durften das Lucky Leek noch im "Keller" kennenlernen und finden die "neue" Lage gar nicht mal so toll. Das Essen ist allerdings unglaublich lecker und die Kochbücher von Yosita Hartanto sollte jeder im Regal stehen haben. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und bringt einem auch extra Karamelkekse. :)

Pros: Vegane Küche Deluxe, Personal

Superb fine dining experience in Berlin. This place is amazing. The food is just incredible and has really raised the bar for gourmet vegan food. The drinks menu is good, the staff are excellent and the restaurant itself is really good inside.

This is fine dining at its best.

Cons: There isn't one in every city on earth

amazing!! - Edit

This restaurant is a must visit. Possibly the best food I have ever eaten, and I don't just mean vegan food!
I had a 3 course meal of dumplings in a kind of light tomato soup, seitan steak and a chocolate tart.
Everything was perfect. My boyfriend also had three courses and we had a glass of wine and a beer. Everything came to 80€ and was worth every penny.

Perfect food experience - Edit

This was the second time we were at The Lucky Leek and it had kept the standard. As a vegetarian don't miss this chance to experience Michelin star level food. The food was impeccable and perfectly done, every mouthful was a tour de force in balanced taste and texture.

We went for the 5 course dinner with wine menu and it was a perfect match.

The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and allways keen on making sure you got what you need.

The price is "high" compared to the run of the mill vegetarian restaurant, but the level of food craftmanship is worth ten times more.

Do yourself a favor and visit this place!!

Best meal we had in Berlin - Edit

For our last evening meal in Berlin, we decided to dine at the Lucky Leek. We had the five course meal with local Berlin beer. Each course was excellent with a very nice mix of tastes. We sat outside and since it appears to be a quiet neighbour, we found it easy to have conversation. The servers were very pleasant and attentive throughout. Yes, it was expensive but well worth it.

Pros: Fine food, Excellent presentation , Pleasant outdoor seating

Nice food, too many Bobos - Edit

The food was good, but we didn't like the setting which was quite stiff. Guests were mainly upper middle class people. Presentation and prices are haute cuisine, 5 course menu is 49 euros. Main course (Seitan medaillon with dijon moustard sauce) was missing the Pfifferlinge, which were announced on the menu. Waiters were very friendly.

Pros: Nice food, Good staff

Cons: Too chique, Bobos

We went here on our first night in Berlin, and it was incredible! Fantastic, friendly service, and absolutely delicious food with perfect combinations of flavours. My boyfriend is quite the meat eater, and after eating the seitan roast, he decided he is going to try being vegetarian for a month. It's quite expensive but totally worth it.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff

The plates are extremely well presented and there are some very creative ideas, however it doesn't taste quite as good as it looks. I am a vegan chef so I know what could be done to make it more flavourful.. But hey that's just me and I'm a picky eater. Would definitely go back though, despite the high prices.

gourmet vegan dining experience - Edit

Great food and great service. The food is pricey but not as expensive as other gourmet vegan restaurants in Berlin and I preferred the food here to the other places. I loved that each plate had several items on it. The soup came with an unbelievably delicious pastry/roll. The pumpkin ravioli was very good but a bit heavy. My favorite was dessert. We tried both of the desserts which each came as a plate filled with a variety of goodies like basil Ice cream, crembrule, chocolate cake, pumpkin ice cream, truffle, epraline brownie, etc.

I get sick here! - Edit

So disappointed! I went there with lots of vegan people for a "stammtisch" and I waited for more than an hour to get my dish.. It was cold, and I got sick after that!! I'm intolerant to gluten and they told me there was no gluten in the dish but I really doubt it. Anyways, everybody seems to like this place so maybe I should give it another try when it's less busy. Oh, and the waiter could be a bit more polite to,, that won't hurt ;)

Pros: nice vegan choices

Best vegan restaurant in Berlin - Edit

They offer 5 dishes which change daily. From them you can choose as many as you want. We all had 2 of them and is more than enough. The portions are bigger than what you would expect from a kind of elegant restaurant.
The atmosphere is nice, the staff very polite and the food remarkable. No doubt this is the best vegan restaurant I have been to so far in Berlin.
It is pricey (around 35 per person), but worth it.

Pros: Food , Staff, Location

Cons: Price (although understandable)

Outstanding - Edit

Out of all the vegan and vegan friendly restaurants in Berlin (and believe me, there are many), this was one of my favourites. The food was outstanding and artfully plated. They even served us some complimentary amuses! The portion size was perfect - the three course meal left me comfortably full without feeling wanting. The service was also exceptional. The modern setting of the restaurant is also fantastic. I will definitely be going again when I am next in Berlin.

Pros: Great food, Service, Atmosphere

Finest vegan meal I've had in a restaurant... - Edit

My experience of Lucky Leeks was superb. There are no restaurants like this where I currently live so this was a completely inspiring experience. Good quality vegan food, well put together, eloquently served, and well presented. My friend and I both opted for the 5 course set-menu and there was no disappointment. Great flavours throughout and enough food to leave my tummy feeling very satisfied. Quite expensive but certainly worth the money. I went to another restaurant two days before which I guess was similar and I rated it 5 happy cows but now I know what is possible this experience sets a new bar for me and I will have to downgrade my other review to a four. Highly recommended if you want to make a nice evening of vegan dining.

Simply Wonderful! - Edit

On holiday in Berlin earlier this month, my husband an omnivore and I a vegan tried many of the cafes and restaurants listed on Happy Cow and enjoyed most of them.
However, Lucky leek stands out as one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. Right from the start it was clear that this is a business that sets itself very high standards in ambiance, service, cooking, presentation- well everything really. Staff members were all charming and knowledgeable without the stuffiness one encounters often in high end restaurants. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, a feast for all the senses. We were also very pleasantly surprised that it was relatively inexpensive. I can't wait for the next opportunity to visit.

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Something special - Edit

We came to Berlin mainly for the food, honestly. The history of course too, but we'd had the city recommended for several reasons and most recently as a vegan haven, which convinced us make the trip from The Netherlands.

Lucky Leek is a place like no other I've been too. A fancy, almost posh experience. Yet completely unpretentious. I dined in a hoodie and of course being in Berlin other tables were populated by families, fancy evening dress and mohawks.

Obviously being more of a traditional restaurant and vegan instantly marks it out as unusual. So it was a pleasant surprise than it surpassed our expectations. A fancy meal out in a lovely restaurant with super creative gourmet food.

I would definitely recommend for a special occasion, for us, tat was simply being in Berlin!

Fantastic food and service - Edit

Had a fantastic meal here- gourmet food and great service.

The menu clearly changes regularly and is limited but everything we tried was delicious. Had a soup starter and for main shared one risotto and one pasta. Both inventive with imaginative flavour pairings and interesting texture combinations.

Would highly recommend this place to vegans and meat eaters alike. Staff were friendly and although the price wasn't cheap (about 15euros per main course) it was definitely worth it and fairly priced.

The restaurant is on a lovely street that has other nice bars on it which made for a pleasant evening overall.

quality food - Edit

I have to say that after a visit to luck leek, I will have to look at future reviews based on my visit. I feel it's a benchmark!

I do have yo say if I lived in Berlin I might say thr menu is a bit limited, but as a tourist I thought it was awesome.

It could be seen as pricey, but I think for offering fresh original food, its good value. I started with the red pepper and miso soup, with a broccoli spring roll and it was really tasty. Normally I wouldn't bother with the soup but was intrigued with the miso aspect, and was not let down. First mouthful wasa rich pepper taste, but as I finished the hit of miso punched my tastebuds, excellent.

I had the seitan roast for main, with onion gravy and mash, and again it was fantastic. The seitan was tender yet full of flavour once eaten.

A four piece desert finished off the evening, varied in texture and taste, boom!

A must if you come to Berlin.

Exquisite vegan dining - Edit

If you want to have a classy dinner as a vegan, Lucky Leek is the place to be. The restaurant has a beautiful interior.
We had some sort of Thai soup with coconut. Then we ate a lovely starter. Rolls filled with lentils, paired with cucumber and other vegetables and a sauce made of coriander. The main dish was exquisite! At first I doubted if I was going to like this dish, because it’s seitan with a wine sauce, and I’m not a huge fan of wine sauces. But I did like it, in fact I really enjoyed it. There was some sort of deep-fried pear in a dough with it and a fresh salad.
We really enjoyed our dining experience in Lucky Leek and can't wait to visit again and try the full menu.

Bland Taste / Expensive Price - Edit

Very disappointing birthday meal. Salty Risotto, bland and strange pairing of ingredients in the Kurbis pasta and luke warm service. I think they have designers working for them rather than chefs as the meals definitely looked attractive but a real shame about the taste and price. I definitely won't be going back.

Not so great service - was this an off-night? - Edit

Went here tonight after reading the fantastic reviews here, but our experience was coloured negatively by the poor treatment we received. We first walked in and were ignored by the wait staff, so we seated ourselves. The waiter came and served the 2 tables on either side of us, not giving us even a glance. When I asked him for our menu, he hesitated and reluctantly agreed. After he handed the menus to us, he asked us if we had made reservations, in a way that suggested we were not welcomed. When we said No, he said it 'should be okay'. Not exactly how 2 mild mannered patrons guests should be received. We later heard him speak rudely to new guests, who he turned away immediately after asking them short and pointed questions. I don't know if tonight was just an off-night, but we were pretty disappointed and will not return nor refer our many vegan friends to this establishment. The food was certainly delicious, but atmosphere counts as well and is part of the dining experience. We still left a small tip in case there was a misunderstanding or if the waiter was just having a bad day.

Have been here twice, once last summer and again last weekend in their new location. Excellent, excellent food! The plates look like they're made by an artist and the food tastes like it's made by a vegan top chef. Great service and the prices are relatively low.

Worth a visit - reserve on time! - Edit

This vegan gourmet restaurant is for sure worth a visit!

My two friends and me reserved a bit too late on a Saturday, so we could only get a slot of 1 1/2 hours in the evening. We were fine with this (there was no alternative for us since it was our last evening in Berlin). Unfortunately this meant that we could not get a dessert, it took some time until the starters and the main courses were brought and there just wasn't enough time. The portions were not too big but the food was just delicious, and everything was obviously freshly made which explains -and excuses- the waiting time.

The restaurant serves creative combinations, such as "Pumpkin Cordon Bleu with roasted la ratte potatoes, green wok vegetables and 3 kinds of mushrooms" or "Braised seitan medallions, red apple, rose hip gravy, cranberry cabbage and poppy seed croquettes".

Pros: delicious food, creative cuisine

Cons: small portions, can be crowded

Imaginative vegan food - Edit

I've been here on a few different occasions and I always look forward to going back.

The restaurant is in a nice neighbourhood and has both indoor and outdoor seating. It's quite intimate inside and there aren't many tables so I would definitely recommend booking ahead at weekends to prevent disappointment.

The food is usually very imaginative and creative and the dishes change regularly depending on season and the chef's inspiration. They also have a good selection of wine and beer.

Price-wise, I would say it's certainly at the higher end of the scale compared to Berlin but I think it's reasonable value for money.

Pros: Imaginative dishes, Intimate atmosphere, Nice neighbourhood

Cons: A little pricey (but worth it)

Great place - Edit

The place is small and cosy and therefore reservation is required. We went in the early evening and hadn't reserved(happened to be in the neighborhood but were lucky enough to get a table for 1.5 hours, nevertheless if you wished to enjoy a longer dinner reserve a head. The place is very cute and cozy, the girl on the serving was super friendly and an English speaker! the food was fresh , delicious and beautifully served. We loved the atmosphere , food, service.. everything really. They have a changing monthly menu with well balanced and varied choice and some dishes of the day to top it. Might be our favorite dinner place in Berlin, highly recommended!

Possibly the best vegan dining experience I've had - Edit

We visited Lucky Leek on the evening (a Sunday) of our first night in Berlin, and booked ahead as we had heard that the restaurant gets very busy. It was a very good decision to book in advance, as the restaurant was completely packed when we arrived. Although the restaurant isn't hidden away, it isn't clearly marked with signage, so make sure you take note of the restaurant address before you leave.

Three of us went together, and between us we shared two starters, three main courses and two desserts - so we essentially had a taster menu involving 7 different dishes, and every single one of them was outstanding. I don't think I've ever had such a great dining experience at a restaurant. The staff spoke good english, were friendly, and explained the dishes to us. Each course was wonderfully composed, bringing together a mix of flavours in every bite. They were healthy, yet filing; intricately laid out, but easy to eat.

For starters, we had the sweetpotato and chili soup with banana tempura, and the hot and sour vegetable soup with stuffed wontons. They were both absolutely delicious, with a mix of textures and flavours, and seasoned to perfection.

For main courses, we went for the Tandoori Tofu Skewers, Tomato Macadamia Seitan, and the Egglplant/Chive Rolls. Each of the three of us had a different favourite, but each of us would be delighted if we could get a main course that good at any restaurant in London.

For dessert we had the white mocha/nougat mousse and the mango caramel flan. These were so much more to them than any dessert we had been served in a vegan restaurant before. The Mango and Caramel flan came out on a long plate with a small chocolate truffle stuffed with creamed desiccated coconut, a scoop of avocado/lime, topped with a long vanilla wafer. Each of them provided a different flavour, and was superb. The mocha cake was great on its own right, but came served with some plum ragout, chocolate burfi and a hazelnut crisp.

If it were possible to give this restaurant, 6 cows, I would. Amazing food. Amazing Service. And at completely reasonable prices. A crime for any vegan who loves fine dining to come to Berlin and not come and not have a meal here.

Pros: Delicious Food, Varied Dishes, Friendly Staff

Cons: A little hard to find

I'd give it 6 cows if I could! - Edit

Beautiful intimate restaurant - booking highly recommended!
Waiters were courteous and attentive and we felt as though we could take our time over the meal.
This is proper gourmet-style vegan food at very reasonable prices. It's far better than a certain other Berlin gourmet restaurant - nowhere near as pretentious and you don't need to ring a bell to get in!
Foodwise, well, I think I can only echo what most other people say. Divine, subtle flavours that seduce your palate. There were so many pleasant suprises, from the beautifully caramelised roasted yellow courgette in the salad accompanying the starter to the richness of the espresso sorbet which set off the raspberry tart perfectly.
This isn't cooking, it's an art! I insisted my boyfriend took pictures of all the food as it was so beautifully presented - it was almost a shame to eat but I'm so glad I did!
We ate: potato and cucumber soup; spring roll (not your usual bog standard affair but fresh and packed with flavour); tandoori seitan (I'm not usually a fan of fake meats but this really worked and the combination of flavours was amazing); raspberry tart with espresso sorbet and fruits.
We drank: (a lot of) locally brewed beer; soya milk cappucinos; brandy and whisky digestifs.
The whole bill came to 57 Euros but at least 20 of that was drinks (well, it WAS Friday night after all...)
Please visit this place if you are going to Berlin. It's well worth travelling (we were staying 8km away so got a taxi but were so glad we did) if you are elsewhere in the city.
I can't wait to go back.

Pros: ingenius combination of flavours, very reasonable for posh nosh!, large portion sizes

Cons: they should open one in England!

Best vegan restaurant in the world? - Edit

Lucky Leek is the best place we have eaten in Berlin and in fact the best vegan place we've eaten out anywhere. We tried 2 different soups and 2 different starters and everything was amazing. They'd run out of desserts (a shame, they sounded delicious) but they made us up some fruit and ice cream from what they had in the kitchen. We went a year ago so they might have sorted this out by now. Very small so worth booking. If you're a vegan foodie don't miss this place, it's well worth the money!

Simply fantastic! - Edit

Hands down the best meal we had during our trip to Berlin. My partner and I shared two appetizers, two mains and two desserts. They were all creative, very well-seasoned and beautifully presented. I particularly enjoyed the cannelloni and the mango puree dessert. Even the dip that came with the bread basket was really good too. I think it was made from beets pureed with something starchy but the waiter wouldn't tell me what was in it lol

Service was friendly. The one guy that served us at first was kind of dull; the other one had a much nicer personality. The setting was lovely. There were many tiny little details in the decoration. Our meal cost €60 including a big bottle of sparkling water, which I thought was very reasonable.

Make sure you make a reservation. We had one for 6:30 on a Sunday. When we arrived, there were only two people dining, but all the rest of the tables had a reserved sign on. By the time we were finished, probably around 8, the whole place was packed including the outdoor seating. So plan ahead, you don't want to miss this gem!

Pros: excellent food, lovely decor, friendly staff

It's true! Lucky Leek is vegan fine dining heaven! - Edit

After reading all these great reviews of Lucky Leek I knew I HAD to eat there during my short trip to Berlin... and I've very very glad I did. The food was perfect. Beautifully prepared and presented with interesting and balanced flavours. This is the type of restaurant that makes me excited about the possibilities for vegan cuisine!!

The staff were friendly, and they have an English menu. But make sure you book, it was very busy, even on a Sunday night. Oh yeah, and I thought it was very reasonably priced around 60 euro for 2 people (shared starter, 2 mains, 2 deserts, 2 glasses of wine).

Pros: Impeccable presentation, Fine dining, Good value

my dessert was a vegan miró - Edit

hello there, I was at lucky leek and although it's small and hard to get a place it's a nice place to go. It's more the "romantic-eve-dinner-place", in contrast to Berlin's vegan fast food places. The food was very god and interesting and my dessert had similarities with a picture of Joan Miró. They really endeavoured.

But, it's expensive.

Tandooria 13 Jun 2013 - I don't see how you can call this place expensive.. Of yourse, when you compare it to fast food restaurants, as you do, with self service it is a different pricing, but never in the world expensive.
You should go and visit other vegan restaurants in Berlin, they are ALL pricier than this one and none of them serves as creative dishes and a quality as good as they do.
It is guests like you that kill dedication and the courage to let chefs get better and create new amazing food that can delight more people to accept vegan cuisine. If you only see the prices when you sit in a restaurant, you really should cook at home and save your money! Go out and enjoy your stay at a restaurant, get inspired! When you cannot afford it let it be but don't write an untrue review.

Amazing Vegan Food - Edit

I think I might just have found my new favourite restaurant in Berlin (just toppling Cookies Cream off the top spot). We went to Lucky Leek last night for the first time. They had a 4-course-plus-aperitif Valentine's Menu on offer for €32 which lots of other diners had chosen (and it looked great!), however we opted for the standard menu and we weren't disappointed.

To start I had a clear lemongrass soup, containing some delicious vegetables and ginger/herb dumplings, and accompanied by vegetable tempura on a stick. The soup was absolutely delicious and the perfect way to start the meal. My partners had the zuccini/courgette "cannelloni" which was also very good - stuffed with a smoky tasting bean puree. his entree came with a large salad and was a good size for a first course.

The mains were spectacular. I had a black lime and coconut risotto (tasted mostly of coconut and the rice had a bit too much 'bite' for my taste) but was really very nice and the little additions that accompanied it really made the meal. These were marinated honeydew melon balls, pak choi and cucumber in a sweet marinade and teriyaki tofu (SO delicious!). My partners Seitan Pfefferklopse also went down well.

Dessert was my favourite part of the meal - a "black and white" chocolate tarte with a raspberry sauce and a mango ice-cream. Delicious.

It was a truly lovely dining experience. The restaurant itself is small but cosy and the waiters were very efficient and very pleasant and spoke great English if you needed it. I'd recommend booking on busy/weekend nights as some people before us were turned away.

The portion sizes I felt were absolutely fine. It's not the cheapest restaurant in Berlin (mains are around €10-€12) but for the quality it cannot be beaten in my opinion. And it's certainly got to be cheaper than its equivalent in somewhere like London.

I will definitely be back, and soon!

Pros: superb high quality, innovate vegan food, friendly, cosy

Cons: really, none

i'm so lucky! - Edit

i had a limited time and place in my stomach in berlin, but the experience i had in Lucky Leek had me running back for another great meal!
the dishes are creative, extremely beautiful and so so so tasty. i especaily recommand these two dishes: Saltimbocca from tomato with roasted cauliflower and pumpkin gnocchi, and the Rosotto carnaroli with sage, white and black beans, red onions and herbed tempeh.
after eating the risotto i fell in love with sage.
if you're a chockolate person you should definitely try the chockolate mouse. i have to note that i was very disappointed of all the sweets in berlin, but Lucky Leek was the light at the end of my tunnel. the mouse was excellent, but even more outstanding was the Vanilla Tart.

there's an english manu, and the staff will kindly anser all your questions. and believe me- the man who served me had a lot of patience.

you should order a table before you go there, cause it's a bit small, few tables, so to promise this great experience plan ahead.

Pros: excellent food, healthy cuisine, very creative

Cons: small place

nicnok 22 Feb 2013 - I'm not sure how you can call this place expensive. For the quality of food, this place is ridiculously cheap. In fact, if the quality of the food was half as good, it would still be cheap. €12,50 for a main meal is not expensive. Anywhere. Unless you like eating McDonalds. For 5 star quality food, it is an absolute steal. To give this 3 stars because you are tighter than a fishes asshole, is pretty shameful.

Hear the heavens bells ring - Edit

This is like the best resturant.. Or wait!
Like the best food I have ever eaten! (includes the time when i was not a vegan)
We came at the evening, romantic candles and a very cosy feeling inside.
The place wall full of people so we waited a while to get a seat.
The menu was full of delicious dishes but i ordered the seitan roll with herbs, redwinesause, rattatouile and fried potatos. MMMMMMMM!!! Seriously.
Tasted like nothing i have ever tasted before! SO GOOD! my taste buds died of happiness.
For dessert we had lemoncake with flambeé pinapple, coconut icecream and some fresh berries.
I will never forget, and my friend who i brought with me have been a vegan ever since!

10 happy cows!!

Pros: Delicious food, Nice staff, Very good place to take non vegans!

Cons: You may be in time to accommodate

Lucky to find Lucky Leek - Make It A Must Visit - Edit

I've been to Lucky Leek 20 times since it opened 6 months ago, and I'm still astonished at the quality of the meals there. It's a small intimate restaurant and yet it's always been packed, even since I first started eating there, so they are certainly doing something right. My girlfriend and I both agree that Lucky Leek has the best food we've ever eaten. The chef excels herself every week, with imaginative, well balanced and beautifully presented food that is almost an art piece. Whatever you do, do not miss this place, it really is a gem. Even if you are on a budget, skip lunch and spend a little more for exquisite food that will make you rethink what vegan food can be, with friendly service as well. A vegan paradise.

Pros: Friendly, Tasty, Fine dining

Cons: Not Open Mondays

Excellent restaurant! - Edit

I was in Berlin a couple of weeks ago, and visitet Lucky Leek two times: once for lunch and another time for brunch.
Both times the food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere warm and casual.
My Dad didn't like the brunch as much as I did, since he'd expected something like English breakfast, and the buffet contained mostly different kinds of tapas.
Anyhow, I ate myself almost sick because there were so many dishes I had to try and it was impossible to take just a little piece of each! ;)
To sum up, one of the best restaurants I've ever visitet.

Pros: tasty food, friendly english-speaking staf, nice atmosphere

Cons: too far from my home!

Cordon Bleu Vegan Food - Edit

My husband and I visited Lucky Leek on our recent visit to Berlin and were blown away by the quality of the food. It's very rare that we go to a restaurant and are spoiled for choice on the menu. We turned up on spec on a balmy August evening and sat outside in the sunshine. The staff were friendly and laid back, and seemed to enjoy our enjoyment of their food! I had smoked tofu on a bed of horseradish sauce between two shards of filo pastry, accompanied by beluga lentils and a pumpkin sour cream sauce. It was a work of art and the most delicious meal I've ever eaten. My husband had the leek and pineapple risotto, which was perfectly cooked, with just enough bite. For dessert, I had a berry tart with avocado-lime ice cream and my husband had a chocolate concoction. We were both very full after these courses and thought that the bill for our meal was very reasonable, given the high quality of the food. We'd spent a similar amount on a meal in an Italian restaurant on the Gendarmenmarkt, and the food wasn't as good quality as the meal we had at Lucky Leek. It felt like a proper night out, and I wish we had something similar nearby at home. Well worth a visit.

Pros: Gourmet food, Friendly staff, Good location

Cons: Only one toilet!

Imaginative food made with care - Edit

I was impressed with my food - first an excellent coconut and lemon-grass soup and then lasagne with girolles (my only opportunity to have girolles during this visit to Germany although there were plenty to be had in omnivorous places!). The lasagne also featured lemon grass making it a bit like the soup but that was probably my fault for not reading the menu properly! It is a proper restaurant, unlike the other vegan places we went to this visit which were more cafes. Service was polite and efficient. We turned up on spec on a Saturday night and got in OK though another time I would probably phone and book.

Pros: A proper restaurant, not just a cafe, Well presented and tasty vegan food, Uses seasonal ingredients

Nice small place - Edit

This place is very small and so are the portions. A main course costs 10€ or more and leaves you hungry. Service is very slow. Having said that, food is excellent, incredible new tastes worth checking out. The dessert I tried was the best dessert ever, vegans beware though, the dessert had an Oreo cookie which in Europe contains whey powder.

Pros: Excellent food, More excellent food :), Awesome desserts

Cons: Dessert questionably vegan, Small portions, expensive, Slow service

JoyS 22 Feb 2013 - It's awesome that you actually import Oreo cookies from Indonesia. My apologies for fearing european Oreos with whey powder, you really took care of every little detail to provide a 100% vegan experience.
I hadn't asked because I only found out about european Oreos not being vegan a few days later while reading the label in a supermarket, before that I had assumed they were vegan everywhere.

I stand by my personal perception of serving sizes - as you said, it's personal.

Lucky Leek 13 Jun 2013 - Dear JoyS,

thanks for visiting our small restaurant.
Our team was a little shocked when we read about your warning about the oreo we used as a little gimmick on one of our desserts.
We used imported oreos (from indonesia) which don't contain any whey powder!
You could have asked me (I am the slow service ;) and I would have told you.
We ourselves are vegan and of course always read all the ingredients on the products we use.

one small word to the size of the portions;
a lot of people like to have 3 or 4 courses and they sometimes find our dishes too big.
So it is always a personal perception, we feel the portions are perfectly sized to have the most joy without having too much of one dish's taste and get bored.

Everything we serve is 100% vegan, as is our team!

We would love to welcome you again sometime!

All the best

Your Lucky Leek team

Amazing Sunday brunch - Edit

The Sunday brunch was spectacularly tasty. All a vegan could wish for, with a good variation of raw vegetables, fried potatoes, seitan, soy-based etc. Definitely recommended and will surely go back. Moreover, all for a mere 9 euros and fifty cents.

Pros: Food, Price

Amazing - Edit

My husband and I spent the most evening in this small restaurant. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular as I had never heard of it before - I'm in Berlin a number of times each year visiting family. For a Saturday the place was suprisingly empty and we almost went for a different place as we made a rule a while ago never to eat in empty restaurants.

Boy, am I glad that we stayed. The place has a good vibe to it, the waiter was really nice ... and the food was so amazing it is difficult the describe. It was even hard to select anything from the menue as everything sounded so great.

The only thing I am seriously mad about is that only when ordering the dessert the waiter told me about the specials menue which for some reason was missing on our table. On this menue they had the vegan version of my favorite dish from my meat eating days - königsberger seitanklopse. I just hope they will have them again next time I am around (so far i couldnt even find a recipe for that anywhere)

Pros: food to good to be true, good atmosphere, nice staff

Amazing vegan food!!! - Edit

My husband and I were just in Berlin and,on our final day,we ended up at Lucky Leeks. Boy were we glad to finally get to have a meal reminiscent of the vegan meals I would get when I lived in New York City at places like Counter and Candle 79. It is gourmet vegan cuisine at it's finest. The menu is a bit more limited and put me off on the idea of eating there,but only for a moment. We had walked good ways and it was getting a little late,so we decided to eat there. The best decision we could have made. We didn't get any soup or appetizers only because of the prices and we had spent so much the whole week already. We did get two entrées-one was a seitan dish with a potaoe au gratin,and lots of vegetables,which was amazing and perfect. We also got a dish that consisted of an elegantly stuffed eggplant rolls (they had a fancier name,but I forget what it was),stuffed with pecans puree and spices which was incredible,and this was with a side of baked polenta and a soy "cheese" on it. Every single bite was a incredible.
For dessert,we ordered the chocolate tart with a mocha mousse. The tart was more of a cake than what i think of as a chocolate tart,which are usually heavier and denser. This was with some berries and a chocolate sauce. Heaven!! We also got the vanilla mousse,which was excellent,but did pale next to the chocolate and mocha mousse,only because the chocolate was so rich and heavenly.
I hope that everyone who is veg and visits (or lives) in Berlin will eat at this restaurant and have the great experience my husband and I had. I want this place to stay open so we can go back when we're next in Berlin. Really,this place is worth the walk from the train and the higher prices for the meal. Also,the service was great and really friendly and the place,itself,was beautiful. And all of this is coming from a spoiled ex-New York vegan.

Pros: Great food, Great service, Good atmosphere

Cons: A tiny bit pricier

after years of meat i was glad to meet the meatles - Edit

I've been to lucky leek my first time and must say it is worth a visit!
it's a really small, but lovely place with incredibly nice staff!

first of all i'll start with the food:

i had a soup and and a main, was totally filled and totally lucky!! :)
my friend had a main and desert and she was amazed, she is no vegetarian but by the look and taste of the "mousse from white chocolate with strawberries and rhubarb" she ordered another desert. :)

the wine:

we had half a litre of the "dry riesling" (white wine from the rheingau) and as a wine lover i must say it perfectly fit to the whole menu!
dry, yet fruity! just perfect!

the place:
located in the heart of berlin very close to "alexanderplatz"
it is small, and i mean it is small, about 20 seats inside, and another 30 outside. i guess thats what makes it different, you are in an exceptionell restaurant with incredible cuisine! so let's get to it:

the verdict:

i will always come back, as often as i can!
the service is still finding itself but the whole treating and feeling is awesome, i believe in the team, the idea and will always come back!!!!!!!!!

thanks for the nice evening and i hope you'll make it!

Pros: food, feeling, price

motto brunch - Edit

I've visited the lucky leek brunch twice and everytime i was totally amazed! i really like the idea of a `theme-brunch` cause its always a little surprise and you never get bored! first time i enjoyed it the was obviously asian-stuff which was really authentic. thai-curry, seitan and black beans, sweat and sour "meat" balls, vegan sushi and some yummy sweets. delicious!! the italian brunch last sunday was as awesome as the asian one! i`ll be back!!!

Pros: great food, lovely staff, location

Fair enough - Edit

I have visited Lucky Leek on Sunday, which is when their main offering is a branch for 9.5 euros.

There wasn't too much of a selection. Three main dishes, one with fried tofu, one with seitan, and one with vegtables only, but otherwise tasted the same.

There were also three types of rice, which differed mainly on their color and slightly on taste.

Other than that they was one type of salat, two kind of sauce(which were remarkably good actually) and brownies for desert, which were just ok.

It was a rather good meal, but not so fulfilling on a culinary prospective. It is possible their non-branch menu is somewhat more fancy, but that shall be decided on another day!

nicnok 22 Feb 2013 - Wasn't too much of a selection?? Were you dining on the crumbs on the floor? We go nearly every brunch, every week it is a different style of food from a different area of the world. I would say there is no less than 20 different plates from salads, to dips, to pasta, to protein to sweets. Very interesting review.

still finding their legs, but great food - Edit

The entire staff apparently comprises two people, including the cook, but it's a small place. Service was slow and a bit chaotic, but fine if you're not in a big hurry. The food is terrific, with a small fixed menu and two daily (?) specials. They offer a nice variety of gourmet-feeling vegan food that isn't too salty and doesn't rely on a lot of processed vegan substitutes for non-vegan ingredients. Prices were fair for the quality of the food: around €15 per person.

Pros: great food, friendly people, doesn't rely on processed vegan substitutes, cosy indoor and outdoor seating

Cons: slow, a bit disorganized

By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

very high quality food! - Edit

The restaurant is rather small, has some outdoor-seating on Kollwitzstraße and features some of the best vegetarian/vegan food in town.
The soups we had were delicious, the main dishes are truly not your run-off-the-mill veggie lasagna, but very imaginative dishes that are absolutely yummy. The preparation takes some time, but everything is fresh and shows the amount of time spent in preparing them both in taste and appearance.
The restaurant is a small basement that is rather bland compared to the extravagant food, but with small design details that make up for the somewhat uncomfortable seating. Service is fine and very friendly. A few minor details gave away that the lucky leek was recently opened and some organisational aspects still have room for improvement. But these are minor quirks, all in all a top-notch place.

Pros: high quality food, well worth the price, cosy atmosphere

Wonderful place - Edit

We were very pleasantly surprised by the great food, the nice place and the absolutely wonderful stuff!!! these are people that try to make a dream come true and create a vegan restaurant with innovative high end quality food. Well priced dishes (i actually find them rather cheap for the quality of produce and the work involved) fun to try new combinations of flavours, and a pleasure to be attended by real friendly people that are able to transmit the love they have for their work. You feel that the creation of each dish has been carefully thought about and that someone wants to create new, innovative dishes with love for all the detail. A place where you can take non-vegan friends and be sure they will love the food without thinking "its ok for being vegan" - they will just think that this is great food and will completely forget to complain about the lack of meat or dairy in it. They have tables outside in summer, and as a tourist to Berlin its a lively and fun neighborhood to visit. I really wish them good luck for this great restaurant!!!

Pros: great food, great value, very friendly stuff

Haute cuisine for real gourmets - Edit

Absolutely fantastic! The Lucky Leek is a very small restaurant with very attentive staff and truly amazing food without meat subsitutes. Really creative dishes you won't find anywhere else in Berlin. For the quality you get you still pay an affordable amount of money. Don't miss out on this one!
