Best Vegan Sushi - Edit

I loved everything there! Well, just the fermented soy beans are very special and not my thing.
But anything else was great. I wish I would have had the time to test everything :-)

Oishi! - Edit

True story: once I stayed in Japan in a five star hotel. The hotel had its own sushi restaurant and as a hotel guest I went to this in-house restaurant. Of course I was welcomed as a valued guest and everyone was ever so kind. But when I asked for vegetarian sushi the staff was insulted and actually threw me out. How dare I asked for something like vegetarian sushi!

So when I saw "MakiMaki Green Sushi" on Happy Cow, I had to give it a try. "MakiMaki Green Sushi" is about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Cologne, but once you're there it's a warm welcome. It says "The first vegan sushi bar in Cologne" on the window, so I was pretty sure I would not be thrown out this time.

The staff speaks both English and German, but the menu is only in German. However, with pictures, English titles (but German descriptions) and the help of the personnel it's easy to make a choice.

I went for the "bento deluxe" which consists of tea, miso soup and 14 pieces of sushi. The soup was very good and because fresh vegetables were added at the last moment (and not cooked with the soup), it had an even better taste than standard Japanese miso soup.

The sushi is creative, sometimes even daring and always tasty. There's simple, elegant yet surprising beat-sushi as well as more complicated sushi with more than 8 ingredients. Everything was tasty and the quality of the ingredients seems to be very good. Compared to true Japanese sushi (no one of the staff is Japanese or has ever been trained by a Japanese chef) there's less rice and more vegetable. Therefore it's not a vegan version of Japanese sushi, but rather a unique creation by MakiMaki Green Sushi. And I enjoyed every single bite of it!

When I told them how far I travelled to get there, I received "Sweet Geisha Love" as a free side dish. Although I was already quite stuffed after eating the lunch menu, the rather complicated "Sweet Geisha Love" proved to be even more tasty than my main dish.

Since I don't know how to say "tasty" in German, I'll say it in Japanese: Oishi!

Pros: generous portions, fair price, great taste

Cons: a bit outside the city centre (but easy to find), hard to find a parking spot nearby (if you come by

Amazing sushi place - Edit

We went to this vegan sushi restaurant when we visited Cologne and it surpassed our expectations. I recommend the ones you can order individually rather than the specials. We ended up chatting with the owner who is very passionate about veganism and told us his story. He was incredibly nice and welcoming to us, and made it an experience I will never forget.

Extraordinary - Edit

This sushi is very beautifully prepared and extremely delicious. Good food needs time so it’s worth to wait a bit for it.
There is a big variety of dishes.
The stuff is very nice.
Also a recommendation for non-vegan people.
One of the (or even THE) best vegan restaurants in Cologne!

Wonderful place - Edit

I have always been a fan of sushi. Also back in the days when I used to eat fish. I have however never had a better sushi eating experience than by MakiMaki Sushi. I love this place and keep coming back! It's very stylish inside, the prices are definitely fair for such beautiful food (and sushi is generally more expensive than other food) and the food is really delicious. The only thing I would wish for is a roll with sour plum sauce, less sweet stuff in the rolls in general.

Totally recommend!

Creative and delicious sushi! - Edit

If someone tells you that good sushi can't be vegan, show them this place! Unlike other restaurants that only offer you a simple avocado or cucumber maki, this place has all the combinations you can possibly dream of! For me it was hard to make a decision so I I took the mixed box and 3 of the special makis. All of them were very good but I would highly recommend to try the bigdaddy and geisha versions because they really stand out and are a extraordinary taste experience! The staff is very nice and friendly and I really enjoyed my visit there! Keep in mind that everything here is freshly made, Sushi is slow food, and on a busy evening you might have to wait for 3/4h. Still, absolutely worth it!

vegan sushi makes you happy - Edit

I'm so happy now after a great vegan sushi meal. I started with a Kimchi Miso Soup. Wow, very special and tasty. Then we shared to mixed plates, because it was so difficult to choose a meal. Everything sounds so good and we saw so many interesting meals of other guests surround us. Very fresh and fancy. This food makes me really happy. The restaurant is bright and beautiful, the service is friendly and quick. They offer the wonderful St. Leonhard Water gor a very good Prize. The food isn't cheap, but I think for the good the prizes are fair. I will come back soon, I'm already addicted!

Pros: fresh and healthy, big menue , friendly service, beautiful place

Very creative! - Edit

Very interesting sushi combinations! Went there with three non-vegans and they missed nothing, especially since the taste was so different from normal sushi. They only have chopsticks (or at least had, when we were there, as far as I remember), but they have the ones for kids for people who can't use them (yet). Staff was very friendly and it did not take long for our food to arrive.

Pros: Creative sushi

Five Star Vegan Sushi! - Edit

After having about 10 items on the menu, they are all excellent. My favorites are the Korean Kimchi roll and the Natto Gunkan, only if you like natto of course. The Russian Game was fun as there is a hot chili in one loaded roll.

Pros: Excellent service, food and conversation to be had

delicious! - Edit

The sushi is really good, and for about the same prices as a regular sushi place. I ordered too much and was full, so I took the test home with me.

Pros: delicious sushi, big menu to choose from

Cons: music too loud

Super lecker, kreativ, schön angerichtet - Edit

(English below) Dieser Laden ist der Hammer. Es gibt eine große Auswahl an Sushirollen und Makis, unglaublich kreativ und lecker. Der Laden ist außerdem sehr freundlich eingerichtet und sauber.
Der Service ist noch ein bisschen verträumt, aber es ändert nichts an den 5 Sternen. Einfach zu lecker! 😊

This place is da bomb! The Sushi rolls and Makis are amazingly creative, beautifully arranged, fresh and tasty. The place itself is very welcoming and clean.
The service is a little dreamy still, but it doesn't take away from my 5 stars, because it's just too good. 😊

Pros: Just delicious!!!

unreal. - Edit

My boyfriend and I practically tried one of everything on the menu. Everything was so good, you could taste all the flavors in every bite of sushi. The kimchi was also so good. While we were there we had to keep reminding ourselves that we were at a fully vegan restaurant. The atmosphere was great, the service, and the food was unreal. We loved it. The prices were expensive, but matched the craftsmanship that went into every piece of sushi, and matched prices of non-vegan sushi restaurants. 10/10.

Pros: amazing flavors, everything tastes great, very clean , fast service

Great sushi / soups could be better - Edit

A new place in Cologne with a innovative sushi style. All the dishes are stylishly presented and very tasteful. The staff is friendly and the location is ok. We ordered two different soups and both were a but disappointing. The miso was very bland and the Korean style kimchi soup was nothing like the photo on the menu. There is room for improvement but we will certainly give this place a second and third chance due to the excellent sushi / maki.

Pros: friendly staff, excellent quality and freshness of food , creativity

Cons: Located near a road with much traffic

The vegan Sushi Place in Cologne! - Edit

Amazing food, well prepared, nice staff, really cozy and comfy atmosphere. The prices equal those of a usual sushi place and the selection is supreme. Talked to the chef and he even orders the capsicum from his hometown in Bulgaria himself, cause he prefers them to the organic ones he can only seem to find here.

Pros: Amazing food, Nice atmosphere, Good selection
