Interesting but no aircon today! - Edit

Just grabbed a drink: too hot inside to enjoy inside.

They should improve their opening time - Edit

The concept of this place is very nice. Its a big restaurant in the heart of Brussels, with nice decoration, it's a spacious place. They got price by weight formula, some people wrote that it is expensive I don't think so at all, you can have a HUGE meal for some 15 euros, with a lot of variety. I am a huge fan of raw food, and in this place they are specialized in that, almost half of the options are raw vegan. I really liked the place BUT the opening time dont make sense, they're closed on weekends and on weekdays they close at 20.00. I asked about that and they told me they were focusing in people working around, but they were going to start opening also on weekends.

Cons: Come on change your opening times

Tasty food in a modern setting - Edit

There are raw vegan and cooked vegan options that you can choose from and put on your plate. Everything costs the same and you pay for the total weight on your plate. A full plate is 20-25 euro. The food is tasty and filling, and definitely not boring, there were many interesting dishes to choose from.

Pros: Many options, including burgers, Nice place, modern design

Cons: Music a bit loud, maybe a bit pricy

Over the moon? - Edit

Staying in Brussels for one night, I had one chance to try one of the vegan restaurants there. However, for some weird reason many restaurants are closed on Tuesday in Belgium (earlier that day I tried to have lunch in Liege and everything was closed). So, Moon Food wasn't my first choice; it was simply the only thing open.

Moon Food is a buffet style raw vegan restaurant in the so-called Government region where all the offices of the European Union as well as many embassies are located. This means it isn't exactly a sparkling or lively place.

When entering, the mood at Moon Food is quite a contrast! Bare concrete and warm wood make for an interesting contrast to dim lighting, while rather loud mood music is playing. It all seems very sophisticated!

The buffet offers plenty of choice. One station is all hot food, one offers all cold food. I simply tried a bit of everything. One pays by weight, expect about 10 euros for a full plate. Add 2 euros for a drink. Everything tasted just fine. My advice: if there's little left in a pan, then that's the most popular for a reason.

The taste is never spectacular and I never had the feeling of eating something special. One point of a restaurant is enjoying food one can't (easily) prepare at home, but in this case it all tasted like average quality home-made food. Therefor Moon Food is a place to go for convenience, but I wouldn't recommend it was a treat or a night out with friends.

Pros: Open on Tuesdays, Fair price, Wide variety

Cons: Average taste, No cosy athmosphere

Really good vegan buffet - Edit

I was hungry when I arrived, and satisfied when I left. The buffet had lots of variety of good choices. I had a really nice burger, salad with hummus, excellent channa masala, califlower, and fried potatoes. The kamboucha was unsweetened, which was nice. The cake looked good, but I was too full!

Pros: Really good vegan buffet , Friendly

Cons: A bit pricey, but reasonable for what you get

Sweetest staff and good food! - Edit

We went here for two times and never got disappointed. One time we just helped ourselves at the raw buffet and the other time we got some warm food from the other side and a raw coconut cake. Everything was quite tasty and the staff was super sweet and attentive, explaining how the payment is done and even letting us sit and eat up for an hour after closing.
Also it's one of those rare places in Brussels, where you can catch (vegan) dinner after 19 p.m. ;)

Pros: Tasty food, Opening hours, Very attentive staff

Cons: A little expensive, but so is all in Belgium :)

It's not hummus if there's no tahini in it! - Edit

We went for dinner and there was not much food to choose from. The rice was not very good and the hummus can use much more tahini.

Overall just ok, we'll try lunchtime to see if it gets better!

Pros: Vegan

Cons: Expensive, Not many options

EXPENSIVE. - Edit

Food is OK, but I'm not coming back.
My plate was costing around 9€ and I decided to add two slices of sweet potato, and suddenly my plate was costing 12€. No, I'm not even kidding. I knew it was price by weight, but omg. I also bought a thin slice of cake for 3,90€. After paying and sitting, I went back to the counter to ask for some tap water and a napkin. He gave me the napkin as fast as he told me NO for the tap water. What a shame. :(

Pros: You can choose whatever you want from the buffet.

Cons: Expensive. Not worthy. Overrated.

Tasty vegan food by weight - Edit

This was a nice restaurant offering food only by weight (aside from a fixed price on dessert items and soup). I would imagine it is best to get there near the start of the service so you get the freshest food possible, however when I went in the late afternoon the food was still nice. I found I got a lot of food for the price this way, as I found Brussels to be an expensive city (as far as food). My favourite things I ended up trying were the lasagna and the chickpeas. I would have gone a second time had I been able to before my trip was over.

Pros: Food by weight means good value , Tasty food

Cons: No a la carte menu

Surprisingly good vegan place - Edit

It is our favourite vegan place in Bruxelles. All their food is vegan, self served and paid by weight (some exceptions). Food is fresh and tasty, not oily. Staff was nice.

Pros: Full Vegan, Self serve, Paid by weigth

Cons: maybe it could be cheaper, but the price was ok

Good food, but pricy and service could be better - Edit

We planned to check this place out because we like vegan-only restaurants, of which there are just a few in Brussels. The food was good, but the overall experience disappointing. There was a huge line, because only one of the two cash registers was open. By the time we got to pay, the hot food had turned cold. We knew already from other reviews that it was pricey, so no real surprises there, but it would be a good idea to place a weighing scale at the buffet to allow people to check how much they can be expected to pay in advance. For the rest, we found that the place lacked atmosphere, the music wasn't very pleasant and it was too cold inside. With a few adjustments, they could make it into a much nicer experience, given the high prices.

Tasty - Edit

The food tastes wonderful ! You can sit there to eat or just take it out. Ofc like all the other people said here it is quite expensive for what you get. Like a small piece of pie is almost 4 euro.

It is not so far from the train station Brussels central.

Pros: vegan, raw, location

Cons: expensive

Really tasty and really pricy - Edit

The food was quite good and healthy, everything is vegan an gluten-free so no need to worry about the labels. But what a bad surprise when you arrive at the counter, the price is 2,7/100g so you better be not eating
Much there if you don’t want to pay 20 for your plate. I think it is quite expensive for a lunch place.

Pros: tasty, healthy

Cons: very pricy, self service (and expensive?!)

Great concept - Edit

You take a plate and whatever food you put on it is weighted. There are 2 stations, hot and cold and you can chose from raw or cooked vegan dishes. Everything is vegan too. If you would like to try something new, get inspired or just feed your belly, I recommend it.
I also had this very rich almond cheesecake. We could barely finish between the two of us.

Pros: diversity, raw choices , fresh

Cons: expensive, operating hours

Bad quality/price ratio - Edit

The price was about 2.70 eur/100 g which is quite expensive but the food looked very good. We tried a little bit of everything and the only thing that was really worth it was mushroom sauce. The rest was very not really tasty... We didn't try the raw food because of the price per g.

Pros: healthy, nearby center

Cons: price, taste/quality

Healthy but not very tasty and quite pricey. - Edit

There is a raw food section and a cooked vegan food section. The cooked one is tasty but I find there is something missing in the raw section, it is not very satisfying. The raw vegan chocolate/coco cake was delicious! :) The staff is fine but the price is only affordable if you eat very little as it goes by weight and it often gets VERY expensive!

Pros: Healthy , self service, spacious

Cons: EXPENSIVE

Creative, raw, convenient, but something missing - Edit

The food on paper is amazing raw, vegan cuisine. I eat as raw as possible so it was convenient to find this place near my accommodation in Brussels. Buffet style food tends to mean it won't be as good as a normal restaurant in my opinion, and it held somewhat true. The food could feel soggy, old, and a bit bland sometimes. It was also pretty expensive. However, I spent every day eating at this place and it's fantastic to have a raw vegan buffet in Brussels.

Pros: convenience, plenty of options

Cons: bland, buffet food can get old and soggy, price

Good but expensive - Edit

Nice interior and delicious food. But it's definitely not cheap. €15 for a medium sized plate not filled much. I think €10 would have been fairer. Would still recommend this place though if you don't care about the cost

Pros: Good self serve food

Cons: Expensive
