Kitchen Prepares Meat at Night

After learning this kitchen is open at night as a bar which sells anti-vegan dead baby animal bodies, I've sadly had to reduce my rating. I certainly hope the proprietor of this place can force a little kindness down the throats of whatever [censored] is cooking up mutilated corpses of actual living animal life forms in a place and kitchen meant to be safe and hygienic for vegans. Incredibly sad, won't be able to return until this tragedy is fixed (and properly sanitized) no matter how friendly the owner is. Gross violation of trust.

Mandarin as in King. Here lives the King of Kindness. This is the right place for real vegans. Owned and operated by hardworking vegan magicians, nothing forgotten in this glorious buffet. Immediately complimented on my Animal Liberation t-shirt and greeted me in english which was a warm surprise. I don't think I was ever properly welcomed to Brazil until this vegan did so. Closed for carnival, I almost left the island without trying it, but extended just to do so and well worth it.

This is how you go about feeding people vegan food. Slam packed with affordable and delicious assortment of roots, leaves, seeds, fruit and nuts. Plus give me a break, five kinda of hot sauce. Best spot in Brazil.

Pros: five kinds of hot sauce, vegan for the animals, food for the people

Cons: not always vegan, doubles as a morgue, food borne illness risk

Cheap vegan buffet lunch

The price was bomb! R$12 for a vegan buffet and you could eat as much as you want. The food didn't have much flavor, though.

Pros: All vegan, Cheap

Cons: Food ok not great

Welcoming place in the city center

I came for a lunch with a couple of friends and two children and noone was disapointed. Simple yet delicious food won't leave anyone disapointed and hungry and the owner and staff will make you feel welcome and local. We also had some kombucha wich did not disappoint!

Pros: Food, Staff, Location

Decent buffet in a tight space

I came in for the buffet lunch before 12pm and the small space was already full. The selection of food was decent enough, if not amazing, and was super cheap at R$10 all-you-can-eat. It wasn’t the most comfortable arrangement squeezing into a small bar table, but worth the price. I paired lunch with a R$5 orange juice from the bar.

Muito bom

Achei ótimo, no dia que fui as opções eram mais pro tipo saudáveis. O atendimento também é bem legal. Pelo preço, não tem como dar menos do que 5 estrelas.

Vale a pena conhecer.

Ótimo atendimento, preço mais que justo, opções veganas de verdade, sem simulações. Pro meu paladar, a comida é um pouco oleosa, mas não desabona.

Pros: Preço, atendimento
