Good food - Edit

The last time I've been there was a year ago, and at that time it just started to be all vegan. Went there during lunch, and the place wasn't too crowded, nice atmosphere, delicious food. Lovely!

Pros: good food, cozy, nice staff

Cons: small

Finding Nirvana - Edit

We found this restaurant by doing our customary search on Happy Cow before setting out on travels to avoid the usual miserable search for vegan fodder in pastures new. We LOVED this restaurant, the food was tasty and reasonably priced which was an amazing find in pricey Luxembourg. The manager was lovely, very committed to furthering the ethical veganism cause. He even gave us free cake in honour of Indian independence day.. Thank you, Happy Cow users, for the excellent tip.

Pros: Great food including vegan cake., Friendly staff, Good prices especially for such an expensive city.

love it!! - Edit

Great place to go to for lunch or dinner, coffee or just to pass the time as it's very central and cosy ;)
Food is fantastic, their vegan cakes are amazing and your wallet would never suffer at the end.
It's definitely the place to go to over and over again

Is it 100% Vegan?? - Edit

I took away some food.
When I asked the staff about the vegan-friendliness of their plates; the staff mentioned that they do not use any animal or animal-derived product; hence, they are vegan.
However, I did notice that in the allergen list they have, they write yoghurt for one of the desserts.
I did not check the list thoroughly, and I don't really know how up-to-date is that list; but if someone else could double-check on this issue, it would be great.

As the food itself, it was nothing extraordinary; but it was good. All the plates they had in the buffet (many choices!) were vegan according to the staff.
The prices are unbeatable (especially the take away ones), and the location is also good.

All-in-all, 100% vegan or not, I think it's a good place to stop-by if you're in Luxembourg for dinner.

Pros: vegan-friendliness, extremely good value, buffet

Cons: nothing

Amazing food - Edit

Probably the best vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Luxembourg at this point. Been there once a week for several months now and it never disappoints. Service incredibly friendly and the food is always very nice.

It's a shame there aren't more people going there.

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly service, Good price

super for vegans! - Edit

I went here last wednesday 8/04/2015 and the buffet was super and not to mention a super price (€8.40)! everything on the buffet was vegan that day (but I can't say if it's like that all the time) The only thing which may be a problem for some is I don't think the cook's French is the best, we reverted to English mostly whilst there, but that's hardly a big problem!

Pros: low price, mostly vegan

Cons: -

Pretty good vegan-friendly dinner place - Edit

Me and my vegetarian friend at dinner there today and it was pretty good. We got a lot of food, when we couldnt eat it all, they asked if we wanted to bring the rest with us (which is great!). They didn't have vegan dessert so i got a cup of tea for free which was kind of them. (we ordered a dinner buffet so dessert was included).

Pros: most of the food was vegan, not too expensive, nice staff

Cons: only took cash, lacked "atmosphere"

Tasty and welcoming - Edit

This small Indian place is owned by an extremely kind person, who will gladly explain you in English which items are vegan (which are many). He will also make sure everything is according to your liking and offer you some treat in case something is lacking.

During lunchtime there's a lunch buffet and in the evening you can opt between a dinner menu (several samples of the dishes on the menu that day) or one dish with rice/salad only. The price is very fair for Luxembourg standards, and even cheap for the lunch menu.

The food was like home-made, tasty and very spicy - in a good way.

They recently joined the Vegan Society and offer its members a complementary tea/coffee after meals.

They serve alcohol and have some good organic red wines which go great with the meal.

The jazz music playing was lovely too: an inviting place to relax and feel welcomed after a long day.

Authentic, honest food - Edit

The Nirvana café is the best place for vegetarians and vegans to eat Indian food in Luxembourg -- don't expect anything fancy schmancy: expect honest, authentic, satisfying food. The Nirvana Café is open every day from 11-21h except on Sunday. The Lunch buffet is from 12-15 o'clock; in the evening the buffet is open from 18-21. They do not use ghee or butter; however, on should ask which buffet items are vegan. The buffet changes every day.
