Nothing like Brooklyn M.O.B. - Edit

We decided to go here having previously visited M.O.B. in Brooklyn NY. This place bares no resemblance to its NY equivalent. Not only are some menu items completely missing (e.g. mac&cheese) but they have managed to "frenchify" the burgers and this is not good. Whilst the Texas burger was full of flavour it was way too small, and had hardly any filling. The California burger was pretty tasteless. "Fries" were okay but not real fries. The standout however was the soft serve sundae - a real treat for a vegan - however this was very pricey at 5 euros + extra for toppings. Location is inconvenient. All in all I would not make a special trip for this place, but if you are hungry and in the area you could get a snack sized meal here.

Pros: Sundae

Cons: Too small, lack of menu options, tasteless

bad Timing - Edit

Please update Sat's closing to 6pm. Not 10pm. We were highly disappointed when we arrived to a closed shop after spending 15 euros on a taxi. So we went to Hanks Vegan Burgers instead.

Best Vegan Burgers! - Edit

Best vegan burgers I've ever had! The size of the burgers could be a little bigger but the taste is on point. The service was also super fast and the staff were very friendly. I also ordered a salad and a smoothie as well as the raw cheese cake - all just as tasty as the burger. We should replace all take-aways with ones like this.

Pros: Vegan - Delicious, Quick service - Fast food

Cons: A little expensive, Burger size could be bigger

Good, but too small - Edit

Had the Okinawa and the Texas burgers. Both were quite good, but too small. It's more like an afternoon snack than a lunch. The place is very nice, and the employees were good.

Pros: Tasty food, Nice place

Cons: Too small for the price

Fun little 100% vegan place for small budgets - Edit

We only went for a light lunch, so we didn't have the burgers, but instead enjoyed a miso soup with beetroot chips. Both were very palatable. The ambience is interesting, a bit of postmodern punk, and the staff is friendly, but doesn't speak English very well. All menu items are under €10, so it's a place that's suitable for the budget traveler. We will definitely return upon our next visit to Paris and try the burgers as well.

Pros: Cheap, Tasty, Interesting ambience

Cons: No toilet on the premises

Very nice fast food - Edit

I loved the taste of the burguers. It is true that they are a bit small, but I don't think the price is high at all for Paris. We had two burgers and 1 XL french fries split in two and paid around 10€ each. I loved the taste of both things (California Burger with Basicil sauce and fries) and they served really fast. Will come back if I have the opportunity and try the desserts :)

Pros: Very tasty, Very fast, Healthy options

Cons: Burgers a bit small, Opening hours

Nice burger and sundae - Edit

I liked the setup of this place and whilst the burger was tasty, I thought it was a bit on the small side for the price. I also had a chocolate sundae which was delicious!

Pros: nice decor, awesome sundae

Cons: serving was small

Good not great - Edit

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I visited this MOB location in Paris. We both had their burger and fries. The service was reasonably quick considering how busy they were. The burgers were good but wish they had the option to add cheese.

Only real downside to the restaurant is it is a little far away from the main sites. It is a couple of miles away from the Notre Dame cathedral. It is near a metro station though.

Restaurant agréable, plats décevants - Edit

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'emplacement et le restaurant. Il donne sur la Seine et le soir le quai se pare d'une ambiance festive. Le restaurant a son propre univers (très fast food avec une touche déjantée, tout en restant simple) et le personnel est très sympathique et bilingue.
Problème : si les desserts sont convenables (cheesecakes, sundae...), les plats salés ne sont pas à la hauteur.
Le pain semble de mauvaise qualité, les plats font pauvres par rapport à leur prix, et niveau goût voire texture, ce n'est pas du tout ça. Le chorizo sandwich c'est du pain blanc un peu sec et trois radis (littéralement), le burger deluxe était très décevant (malgré un fumage intéressant qui donne une odeur de fast food, appréciée ou non) et le mob dog n'a pas trouvé preneur à notre table.
Allez-y quand même pour vous faire votre opinion, pour l'ambiance et les desserts (bons) mais peut-être pas le lieu de prédilection pour faire découvrir les veggie burgers à un ami.

Edit: un client m'a dit que le pain était fait maison, je ne l'ai pas aimé, mais ça peut être une question de goût!
Updated from previous review on Sunday June 30, 2013

Update: j'ai eu l'occasion d'y retourner, étant à côté, avec des non végé, une des personnes sceptique a été confortée dans son idée que les burgers vg ce n'était pas bon, l'autre qui souhaitait devenir vg a admis que ce n'était pas terrible, les plats n'ont pas été finis, les enfants présents n'ont pas aimé non plus, moi je m'étais cantonnée au dessert qui était correct. Dommage car l'endroit et le personnel est agréable. Ceci dit de nombreuses personnes aiment donc tentez l'expérience, les goûts et les couleurs...A éviter quand même avec un carnivore sceptique.

Good idea, but bland - Edit

We were excited about this burger chain, having seen a TV clip about it while in Bordeaux. So when we arrived in Paris, MOB was an early priority. The staff were enthusiastic and the menu looked good. However,,we found the burger patties a bit bland and lacking in crunch. Nuts and spices need to be notched up somewhat! Smoke alone doth not an exciting vege meal male ( burger patties are made of smoked veges)...

Pros: Cheerful and funky ambience, Helpful staff , vegan fast food

Cons: Bland, Lack of texture

Average and expensive - Edit

When we visited MOB they only had one kind of burger left, the most expensive Deluxe one. All the other ones were sold out.

The taste of the burger was ok, but it was not very special. We didn't like the texture of the burgers. After one bite everything felt a apart.

Pros: nice design, ok burgers

Cons: quite expensive, not much options when we were there, not the best vegan burgers

Among the best burgers in town but small portions - Edit

This place is historically the second location of MOB in Paris. It is very well located with a terrace on the Seine, and has a lot of room inside. The staff is friendly and the place has a good vibe! It is very pleasant to come here.

In terms of food, it offers 4 different burgers (MOB, California, Deluxe, Green), one MOB Iron, two salads, grilled corn and artichokes, sundays, cookies, smoothies, special drinks, organic fruits. MOB no longer offers hot dogs. It seems that they no longer offer fries with burgers.

The food is of great quality and has a perfect taste! They are among the best burgers in Paris: the steak, the bread, the sauces are amazing! You have to try it if you are in Paris. I definitely love the California and the Deluxe burgers.

The only negative points of MOB are:
- the burgers are relatively small which makes them a little pricey,
- there is no formulas,
- there is a huge waste of cardboard where food is served on site! They could easily be more eco-friendly...

Pros: among the best vegan burgers in Paris, grilled artichokes and corn, nice vibe, friendly staff, well located

Cons: small portions, no formulas, too much waste of cardboard!

Great food, questionable service.. :/ - Edit

Great atmosphere and decoration inside the restaurant. The food was excellent and the burgers were the best we had in Paris. Only downside is that the burger fell apart quite easily and the staff didn't seem to be so service minded or polite. They weren't rude or anything, they just didn't greet us or smile. They seemed bored when talking to customers but had fun talking and joking between themselves behind the counter. Hence the 4 stars and not 5. It was also unfortunate that not everything was available to order. For an example; we could only order one burger out of many when we visited.

Pros: Tasty food, Music, Atmosphere

Cons: Staff

Good Idea - Edit

It's a great idea - taking everything Mc Donald's stands for and turning it on its head with a vegan twist. The burgers are tasty, but very small and not as satisfying as other vegan burgers out there.

I thought it was a bit expensive for what it was - the drinks especially were very dear.

However, the food is good and it's a cool place with lots of room and friendly staff. It's worth visiting just to see how they have applied vegan ethics to American Fast Food.

Pros: Food is good, It's a cool place to visit

Cons: Bit expensive, Burgers too small

Ok, but not recommended for hungry people - Edit

We ate at M.O.B at rue Charlot - the second M.O.B. in Paris. The burger tasted ok (we had one with onions and avocado), but was realy tiny (reminded us of the Pipsqueak Patty from SpongeBob Squarepants). We spend 25€ for two burgers and corn, which we couldn't eat because it tasted bitter. Afterwards we had to find us another restaurant, because we were still hungry. They offer no fries and also no Mac'n Cheese, just the tiny burgers. Wouldn't go there again. Probably we are spoiled, because there are so many great and cheap vegan & organic burger places in Berlin, but if I order a burger I want it to fill me up! So I won't tecommend M.O.B for hungry people!

Pros: Patty was good, Staff was friendly

Cons: Burgers too small, Expensive, No proper side dishes

Cleaver idea! - Edit

I love the idea this place have, 'Vegan Mc Donalds'. They have done it very well. The burgers are nice, albeit a little small. The fries are really good and I had the sundae and cookie too which were both good.
It is a little out of the way, but if you have a bit of time to spare then i'd recommending making the trip on the metro to try it.
A little pricy for the amount of food.

Pros: Good tasting food , Cleaver marketing

Cons: Burgers too small

BEST vegan burgers in Paris!! - Edit

This place is awesome!! You must order their President burger. It's incredible. Everything here is vegan. Their fries are delicious! Cheesecake is yummy... I think it's made with coconut milk. And they have kale salads! HIGHLY recommend. It's just too bad that their hours aren't better. They should be open later during the weekdays!

Pros: big and moist burgers, vegan... everything!, fabulous service

Cons: close too early

Iron Man does not correspond to the menu picture - Edit

The title says it all. It was the most expensive item, and I really liked the idea of having lots of mushrooms on the top, as it was displayed on the picture menu. However, when the Iron man was served, there were only 3 (three!) lonely pieces of mushrooms on the dish! I was extremely dissappointed - it seemed to me I was tricked by beautiful picture, but in reality.... it was poor. I would not pay such price if I knew. Apart from this, there was too much garlic, but maybe it's just my taste. Cheesecake is OK for its price, although, I prefer to pay more to have better quality. I will never come back to this place again and would not recommend it for a friend.

Pros: friendly staff, kind of cheap

Cons: tricky menu picture

Great fast food - Edit

They have a big terrace and plenty of space inside. I like the huge table in the middle where people can meet and talk without knowing each other. I met lots of people like that.
I advise to arrive early for dinner otherwise you'll have to queue up! You can eat in or take away.
I had to try everything because it all smelled good. The deluxe burger and fries, the iron man, the vanilla cheesecake and the cookie. The burger and fries have nothing exceptional, but still good for a fast food. I didn't like much the 'smoked' taste. I preferred the desserts.
Staff is really friendly, we chat up a bit.
I'll definitely go back: I have to try the Noutella cheesecake!! :)

Pros: Great desserts, Friendly place

Cons: Small portions, Not much choice

Great Food, but still Fast Food - Edit

The MOB is the Paris branch of a New York based vegan fast food chain. It's beautifully located inside the building of the fashion college, and has an outdoor seating area overlooking the river.
The first neg is that you get no information on the menue. Your order your food at the counter like at McDonalds, and the menue is glued on the cashier counter. So, when you order, that's the first time you see what's to order, but then, there's no description of it (How do your order a Big Mac, when you don't know what a Big Mac is?)
We had Burgers, and a pita with spinach and mushrooms, which was delish! But for being fast food and demanding a lot of work from the customer, it's too expensive. I mean, it's basically McDonalds in vegan (and better tasting, I grant you that), and you order your food, pick it up and clean up after yourself, and they make the biggest possible profit from it, and for that, it's just too expensive.
They have Beer from New York, which was very good (my husband said). The have wine too (yay!) which was hmm-okay.
I'd go there again, though. Dessert was good too

Pros: Food is great, there's wine too!, location by the river

Cons: no menues, a little on the pricey side, reminds me of McDonalds
