First Review by KhadraHayati

Very tasty food - will definitely return - Edit

I read a number of reviews before going and was not disappointed. I had vegan tacos as a starter - very tasty- and the plat du jour which was couscous with coconut milk and chickpeas - also very nice. The other food I saw being served looked appetizing and the portions generous. The atmosphere is relaxed and the owner somehow manages both to cook and serve. I will definitely be returning soon...

Excellent - Edit

Petit resto sympa, peu de tables (une quinzaine de places assises et le comptoir) ce qui fait une ambiance cosy avec une musique de fond des années 80/90. La déco est girly et vintage. La carte est détaillée, toujours de saison et bio ! Les plats sont excellents, bien garnis et servis rapidement. La patronne a toujours le sourire, super accueillante. Tout est parfait, je le recommande si vous passez dans le coin ou bien faites un détour ;)

Pros: Toute la carte est vegan, Produits bio et de saison, Bonne ambiance

Intimate, tasty and quiet - Edit

I went there at 1:30 pm and I was alone. It was silent, there was no music and nothing exepct the sound of my steps and our words. The food was delicious. A californian woman came a few minutes after me and we endend eating at the same table. I am a gluten free vegan and here I ate "avoine" which can actually contain gluten. There is some non gluten options.

I took the tacos, the sushi burrito and the raw carrot cake. That was fresh and exquisite. I eat a lot, really a lot and the portions were modest for me yet it was so good I endend up completly satisfied. I got to taste things I never tasted before.

I felt like I was in the owner's big kitchen, paying her a visit and enjoying her food. Never happened to me before.

Always a pleasure to try new vegan places. I stayed there with my new friend until 3:30 pm and I was like "hmmmmmmmm" with every bite of my meal.

I am no rich man and it's rare for me to go to a restaurant yet this 100% homemade handmade vegan food truly was worth the moderate price.

Pros: quality ingredients and meals, quiet, no gluten options

Cons: oatmeal, gluten

super woman - Edit

This woman was serving, cleaning up AND preparing all the food and drinks on her own, and she did it wonderfully with a full restaurant. The food was fresh, delicious and fairly priced.

A cozy, relaxed lunch with fresh food - Edit

I went here for a lunch on a Wed. It was quiet but with a steady stream of clientele. I had the sushi burrito with a salad. It was fresh and tasty with a Mexican-inspired dipping sauce and light seasoning on the salad. It's also nice to escape the ubiquitous French lettuce and have a mixed salad! The cheesecake was a smaller portion but perfectly sized as it was quite rich with a subtle flavour. Only complaint was the service was a little slow as there only seemed to be one staff member. Don't be in a rush and enjoy the intimate feel. A little music or mood setting would be nice - very quiet so you can hear every word from the other tables! A welcome respite for this vegan in the 17th once you've tried the one Ethiopian dish nearby :) We need more this side of the Marais!

Pros: Fresh food, varied options and ingredients , Cozy intimate feel , One of few vegan options in the 17th

Cons: Very quiet

Excellent vegan - Edit

I have been to this restaurant with my non-vegetarian boyfriend and we both enjoyed it a lot!! He generally doesn'tlike the taste of vegan foods such as seitan,tofu,ecc but he ate the hot dog frenchie and found it delicious. Sushi burritos are great, the prices are low (we spent more or less 26 € for lunch for two sharing one dessert) I highly recommend it!

Pros: cheap and various menu

Great place for vegan - Edit

I generally go vegan with my wife when we take short breaks away from busy london life. Loved the place decoration- MJ every where - really 80s move. Got introduced to Faux Gras- all the consistency of the foi gras - no cruelty, no fat - just bursting with flavours.

Good and healthy food - Edit

I went there for lunch and had great expectations after reading previous reviews. The place is a heaven for vegans in a so hostile French environment. And it's great! The staff is friendly, helpful and prepare food with great attention. We took a smoothie (excellent) and the soup of the day that was excellent and so tasty. Then, we ordered the green veggie burger and the big plate of the day which is composed of the three dishes of the day: the burger, an eggplant curry and an exotic salad. All were very fresh and tasty but I was still a little hungry after that. As a dessert, there was a raw carrot cake, that was not bad but not my cup of tea.

I more recently tried the pizzadilla with vegan cheese (excellent) and the risotto (excellent as well). The dishes seem simple but are in fact very flavorful and perfectly balanced. I also recommend the banana split, a must!

Because the food is homemade and fresh, you must be patient here, but it is worth!

Pros: fresh and healthy vegan food, tasty soups, excellent flavors, friendly staff

Cons: sometimes slow service, small place

Small cozy kitch place - Edit

went there for a seitan atelier on a sunday evening. Was quite surprised the room is small ..but we could sit in 15, watching the lady making seitan. Pink colors and michael jackson wearing an apron made me smile;) Have to try it next time (vegan food)!

umimpressed - Edit

The service was slow, the restaurant was messy, and the food was not great given the prices.

JenniferLoveParis 27 Feb 2016 - Hi there! Wow "unimpressed"... This is by far the worst review so could I please ask you to expand? "Not great considering the prices"; could I ask you to please elaborate? Keeping in mind we are 100% organic (which means at wholesale our raw produce is more expensive than conventional at retail prices). Also, we prepare and cook everything on location. Nothing is frozen (except the sorbets..) and we do not have a microwave. There are no additives or preservatives in the food. We prep in the evening and cook in the morning. "Service is slow"? Please elaborate. Keeping in mind that cooking is time consuming; the kitchen has one stove with 4 hot plates o prepare everything (plus cook more rice/lentils/soup etc as needed). Cooking is labor intensive, but even with keeping the prices as low as possible (which means cutting the largest cost which is staff) people such as yourself seem reluctant to pay the actual price. Which means "service" will obviously take longer. "Take longer" and "slow" are, however, not interchangeable. I run back and forth all day every day. I'm not having a coffee break when behind the kitchen wall, I assure you ;) Also, please explain (given the above), how the "restaurant was messy"? Keeping in mind that everyone shows up at the same time for lunch, and one person needs to prep and cook for those still eating, a well as keeping the restaurant tidy. We start where we are, and we do what we can, right? Please be more elaborate in your feedback (given the above). It is important. Our regulars are happy, they know what goes into it all. That's why they come. A one-stop-shopper will not be able to appreciate the work that goes into it all. So "wont come again" is too bad. Your response would be valuable, I look forward to reading it. Cheers

fievos 29 Feb 2016 - I don't want to write a long complaint; I think my short review covered everything.

I did not enjoy the food, and while I am happy to wait and/or pay more for good food, if I don't enjoy it, then high price and poor service are much less welcome. I understand that there are no doubt reasons for the slow service, but an enjoyable restaurant experience shouldn't need a long list of excuses.

Others may enjoy your restaurant, but it is important for me to be honest about my experience.

Great! - Edit

I just had a great lunch there and really recommend it.
The place is lovely and the lady who welcomed me was kind. The dish I had was delicious (risotto of the day) and I will definitely be back there to taste some other dishes.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Good value

Amazing one woman show! - Edit

If you like awesome food, this is the place to go in Paris!

It is a very small space with only 6-8 tables decorated in 80's flair. You see the fresh ingredients stacked behind the counter - during our visit it was zucchini, fennel, pears, and a few others.

You place your order and, if you listen closely, you will soon hear the sound of a knife cutting fresh veggies. Not only is your meal cooked to order, everything is fresh!

You will pay the price of time for this freshness, but good food is worth waiting for - and we did not have to wait too long. It was Paris and we were having a great time and I was not at McDonalds...meaning, I did not expect my food in 5 minutes.

Highly recommended!

Pros: Great food, Great food, low, low prices!

Cons: Only open for lunch, Only accepts cash

Lovely place - Edit

I read the reviews prior to going to My Kitch'n. Here's my opinion. The decor is lovely. It's a music theme. Old Rolling Stone magazine articles and covers on the table and walls. Not just Michael Jackson but Chilli Peppers, Prince, Brian Eno. Like! Like! Like!
The meat market is a block away - inside a building. We never passed it going there and wondered what the fuss was about. Only saw it after we left.
The woman who served us is a walking advert for vegan food. And yes, she is friendly.
Among the options was a soup and a sandwich special for €9 or a drink, meal and desert for €12 which is excellent value.
Lovely place.

Pros: Well priced, Lovely atmosphere, Vegan only food

Cons: None

Interesting, lovely place. - Edit

As it was quite busy when we visited and just Jennifer was working there was quite a long wait for food which of course we didn't mind as it was a lovely little place to be. Some reviews have stated that the decor and music are over the top which I completely disagree with, the decor is unique and I think really quite cute. I loved how the whole place looked and would definitely like to visit again in the future.
I went with my non-vegan boyfriend who ordered a cola, the vegan hotdog and for dessert the oreo milkshake. He was content with his food, he didn't have salad with his hotdog in order to have dessert which did make it a very small meal. He didn't like the brand of cola they serve here, which I also tried and it definitely was not the best organic, sugar-free cola I had tried, you could tell it was made with agave which he is not used to. He did however like the oreo milkshake though complaining it was a bit 'banana-y' (I also tried this and I thought it was nice).
I ordered coconut water, the Sushi Burrito and the Banana Split for dessert and I was over the moon with my food. The sushi burrito alone does not look like much but it was super filling and really tasty and the banana split was just incredible. Overall I had a lovely experience and would love to go back to try more of what they have on offer.
The food here is all healthy but super tasty and for me was a nice break from the bread I had eaten with practically every meal during my week in Paris!

Pros: Good, healthy, wholesome, vegan food., Lovely staff., Nice ambiance.

Charming Place - Edit

This is a quirky and fun little cafe that serves a good range of vegan food - what really comes across is how much the owner cares about animals and the vegan cause in general and how much she cares about serving quality food. I had the spaghetti bolognaise, made from lentils and really tasty. The cheesecake was amazing and not too sweet or rich.

I would happily go back here. The owner speaks good English too. To get there we took the 54 bus from Gare du Nord to Legendre (15 minutes) and it's a 5 minute walk from there. The area isn't that far from Montmartre so this could be a good bet if you're in that area.

Too kitchy - Edit

The restaurant provides a wide variety of delicious organic vegan food. The owner, Jennifer, is a delightful young Swedish lady who goes to all lengths to greet you in a friendly and helpful way.
However, why is there all of this "kitch"? Why are the walls covered with ugly old vinyl records? Why the piped-in rock music which has no relation to the friendly healthy concept? Why the pictures of Elvis, Michael Jackson, etc. all over the place?
Why not create an atmosphere of a good tasting healthy vegan "Kitchen" rather than an atmosphere of "kitch" (bad taste)?
And why not have visibility of the juice bar, as before???
Updated from previous review on Friday July 24, 2015

Pros: Delicious healthy organic vegan food, Friendly owner, Good service

Cons: Horrible outdated decor, Outdated piped-in music, No visibility of the juice bar

Maiskeks 08 Aug 2015 - Don't really get your arguments. Everything is fine but you don't like the design concept? Is that enough for giving such a low rating? Or did I miss a point?

JenniferLoveParis 09 Aug 2015 - Too "Kitch"? But the name is "My Kitch'n"!(?) Kitch is everything that you LOVE that is borderline bad taste, but that isn't bad taste! Answer is simple: maybe I am not as young as you think ;) I grew up listening to those vinyls! Those are my ugly vinyls on the wall. I love MJ! I love rock. There is no visibility of the juice bar as unfortunately the wall to the kitchen is now a bearing wall that I may or may not have the right to even break open a bit. Discussion is underway with regards to that with the rest of the proprietors in the building.

I loved this place! - Edit

My Kitch'n is a great little restaurant well worth a visit. My GPS wasn't working and I got a bit lost along the way, but the exta walk just made me look forward to trying the food that much more. And the food was indeed delicious. I had raw spaghetti, nori burritos, salad, a green smoothie, mint-infused water, and hot herbal tea. Oh, and a great raw carrot cake that was also amazing. I had a chance to talk with the owner a bit and she was super-friendly and great to talk to. They sell some great cookbooks and other vegan reads (French and English), I picked up a couple and the owner kindly signed a copy of her cookbook for me. I'm looking forward to returning to My Kitch'n next time I'm in Paris!

Pros: Great food, thoughtfully prepared , reasonably priced , wonderful staff

Sweet, creative little place with great food - Edit

We enjoyed our visit here very much. It's a small place, not very busy in the evenings, but the food is outstanding, and the space buzzes with music-loving creativity of the owners: Tables decorated with decoupage photos, vintage music magazine covers, and vegan memes; vinyl and a wide variety of Michael Jackson paraphernalia on the walls, and red ceiling lamps which give the place a pink glow at night. We had faux gras on fresh bread and a hearty soup from root vegetables for starters, the risotto du jour and a spaghetti bolognese with lentils for mains, and raw carrot cake and cheese cake for desserts.

Pros: Tasty food, Interesting interior, Very nice owners

Cons: No private bathroom, A bit on the pricey side

A Real Gem - Edit

Last night we invited a couple to join us for dinner in this tiny restaurant. For both of them it was their first vegan dinner. The husband is a chef in a parisian two Michelin star restaurant. We took the evening menu with wine included for twenty euros. Entrée was faux gras and everybody loved it. I had a sushiburrito for main dish and it was an excellent raw food portion with a spicy twist. The chef had a hot dog and his wife and my partner a pasta bolognese. Again eveybody purred with satisfaction. For the dessert, me and the chef had a raw carrot cake. Again it hit the mark.
This unpretentious place hides a real gem. The service was attentive. Only thing I would change here is the lightning. A little bit softer light would create a more pleasant ambiance.

Yummy food in a cute space - Edit

We found this restaurant (a second My Kitch'n opened by the original owner's daughter) online only a few days after its opening and went by to check it out for lunch. The space is snug, we had a party of five and took up most of the restaurant, but the atmosphere was nice. Fun tables with pictures and stickers, books to flip through while waiting, and simple music that was neither offensive nor sleep-inducing. The food we ordered was basic (we had hot dogs, sandwiches, and soup) but delicious. The hot dogs come on baguettes, making it a little tough to bite but a nice flavor. Their mustard is hot/Dijon-style, so be warned if you prefer the basic yellow stuff. The soup of the day (a veg puree of sorts) was good but a little bland, a bit of salt may have helped. The carrot "cake" we ordered was good, but not cake the way I think of it. It was a formed shredded carrot mash topped with an interesting cream "frosting" (for lack of a better word). The flavor was carrot cake but the consistency was something else. The pear juice (ordered for my son) was amazing, but just a bottled juice, nothing made in-house. The menu wasn't fully available yet, as they had just opened, but we had no complaints about anything we ordered.

The owner was unbelievably friendly and accommodating. She spoke fluent English but conversed patiently when we attempted French. She went to the other restaurant (down the street) to find more juice for us, showed us to the (building-shared, small, not spectacular) bathroom in a back courtyard, and had a nice chat with my five-year-old about adding PB&J sandwiches to the menu.

We will definitely be adding this restaurant to our "Eating Out in Paris" list (which seems to expand every visit!)
