love this place - Edit

It's tucked away down a dark alley and the place isn't anything fancy at all but the food is incredible!

Very casual place, great vegan options, been here 3-4 times and it's always busy.

awesome - Edit

Boyfriend and I are here during our trip to Glasgow. It took us ages to find the place as it's down a lane and we had no internet to get the app up and look! The vibe here is chilled out, the decor is industrial. I ordered a dark and stormy cocktail which was lovely, there are a lot of drinks on offer which is always good. Plenty of choice! They didn't have pizzas or flatbreads so we had to order our second choices but when the food came both dishes were gorgeous so I'm not too bothered that they weren't flatbreads. I had the jackfruit cake sandwich and it was very fish like, loved it! I've never had anything that taste or texture since being vegan so it was lovely. My boyfriend had the macaroni cheese which again was lovely. We were both far too full for desserts!

A taste of Glasgow - Edit

A bar with a friendly staff and a noisy vibe. Great choice of drinks, and great choice of food - but beware the ability of the Glasgow taste for fried food. Healthy vegetables and pickles battered and deep fried took these two out-of-towners by surprise!
And I know the location is in an alley, but the broken cobbles are treacherous (especially in the rain) and the overflowing bins along the way are unbelievable.

Pros: Friendly staff, Choice, Live music - and benefit gigs

Cons: Too much too fried!, Location in filthy alley , Not cheap

Delicious lunch - Edit

I love having so much choice! Had the Tempeh Reuben sandwich which was delicious, plus a soya flat white. Lovely atmosphere and cool decor.

Pros: So much choice, Delicious food, Cool surroundings

A little tough to find but worth the effort! - Edit

On a cold, rainy day touring Glasgow, we searched Happy Cow and decided on Stereo. We're very happy that we did. They have a large, extensive, all vegan menu, a great craft beer list and warm, welcoming service. We ordered the vegan haggis starter, my son ordered the mac n cheese, I order the Sharmuchan sandwich and my husband ordered the Rueben. The portions are large and none of us finished. The food was very flavorful, freshly prepared and promptly delivered.

Pros: Delicious, Huge portions

Cons: tough to find

Looked - Could Not Find :-( : ( - Edit

Found the "Flying Duck" other end of street (unique - menu says all Vegan, though much on menu seems cooked in oil (No Oil Vegan - certainly little as possible),

Pros: pleasant atmosphere

Cons: Menu - says chicken & other animals repeatedly

Tucked away in a side street not far from Glasgow Central station, I would have missed this great place if it weren't for the Happy Cow app.

Fantastic menu with a good specials board and a great selection of beers and other alcohol.

I tried the black lentil dhal with flatbread which was nice but lacked seasoning. Was envious of some of the other food being brought out, the portion sizes looked generous too.

Chilled out environment, was very quiet when I visited around 4pm on a Thursday.

Will definitely return and try something else from the menu.

Pros: Excellent menu, Good selection of beers and other alcohol

good food and atmosphere - Edit

Hidden away but easy to find with happy cow app. Great atmosphere and the staff were so kind. Started with humus which was good. Had a good Spanish wine. Had the special of the day Korean hot pot which was lovely and spicy. Must keep the Koreans warm. Puddings were fine for a vegan wanting choice. Such a great mix of people.

Tasty food - Edit

Ive been here quite alot now. The food here is always really tasty and it has a pretty varied menu-with deserts!!
Some of the staff are a little too cool for school though and often make it seem like having to serve you is some kind mundane chore.

Fave vegan Restaurant❤️ - Edit

Been to a few vegan/vegan friendly restaurants in glasgow and Stereo by far the best! Lots of options and great desserts as well. Went on a Saturday night and was busy but not overly crowded/loud - nice atmosphere. Staff v friendly, food amazing!! Non-vegan people loved as well, just slightly hard to find, not on the main street. Food arrives SUPER quick.

Pros: Refried bean dish?, Puddings, Atmosphere/staff

Cons: None

I will never come back here - Edit

I've been here several times before and mostly liked the experience. However, the last time I went there I had a really shitty time, which led to me walking out of the cafe. Basically I was very rudely asked to put on my shoes. I take my shoes off all the time as I generally enjoy to sit cross-legged. I tried to find out the reason for this from the manager and nothing substantive was given - apparently pre-empted a customer complaint even though no-one had complained. I like to be in places where I'm accepted for who and what I am. I didn't feel this here and won't come back again. I was angry at myself because I left quietly without finishing my meal. I wished I'd stayed there and refused to put my shoes on and made a scene.

Cons: You have to wear shoes, Not sure what their policy would be on flip-flops, Rude staff

I've died and gone to Stereo. - Edit

Arriving cold and hungry at Central Station in Glasgow, I was over the moon to find a Vegan restaurant conveniently situated nearby. As a non-animal eater, there are very few restaurants where I can eat everything on the menu... but this is one. Excellent food and service, surrounded by good vibes and great music. You must go there if you're in Glasgow.

Great food and space! - Edit

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this venue before as I come here pretty regularly! Although Mono is very much my favourite vegan venue in Glasgow, I really like Stereo for a bunch of reasons: it's conveniently close to both Glasgow Central and Queen Street stations; they offer delicious all-vegan food; they have a great music and events venue downstairs; and the atmosphere and staff are both brilliant. I've come here for food, film showings and gigs and I've always had a great time. Highly recommended; I'll certainly be coming back, not least for some of their very tasty pizzas!

Pros: Great vegan food, Good venue with lots going on

good choices - Edit

great cafe/bar. would be god for a drink if you don't want to eat, it is hidden away, but that half the charm of stereo.
plenty of choice and nice and busy. was let down by some bad service, and although polite, need to get more organised.
Had a new tonight which was really good, the falafel was a wee bit disappointing but everything else was tip top. Really busy and considering that the service was pretty good.

All vegan with great variety - Edit

It's a tough call as Glasgow is so good for vegan food but Stereo probably has my favourite menu. The buffalo cauliflower, cashew cheese sauce, and chips are among my favourites, they almost always have a special dessert that's amazing (a cheesecake of generous portion or a cookie sandwich), and service is usually pretty quick and better than it has been in the past. I would definitely advise booking as - fortunate for them but unfortunate for hungry vegans - of an evening it's often full of people drinking wine and beer, probably non-vegans not realising (nor caring) what wonderful pizzas, desserts, and tapas dishes are available for dining needs. Go vegan already if you're going to stop me getting a seat! There are meat places out there for you! (Rant)

Updated from previous review on 2016-11-15

Pros: Great menu -hard to choose!, Soup & sandwich deal, Amazing desserts

Cons: Interior a bit dull, not very cosy, When bands are on downstairs the floor vibrates, I echo bring back haggis fritters

Wonderful Staff - Edit

All vegan menu of comfort food. Haggis, bean quesadillas, brownies with ice cream, French fries, cookies, salads, ALL really tasty !!! I wasn't a fan of the hummus (too bland for me) not of the tomato gnocchi sauce (the sausage in it wasn't very tasty).

Pros: great variety and nice desserts

Cons: not "the" place for hummus ;)

Great selection - Edit

Vegan, laid back, indie style bar/restaurant for informal dining. They wide selection of food on offer, with daily specials and the menu changes often.

I will second a previous posters recommendation of the tempeh "TLT" sandwich (tempeh instead of bacon). Delicious (huge!) sandwich. The buffalo cauliflower on the tapas menu is also highly recommended.

Pros: vegan, big portions, good value

Cons: bring back the haggis fritters

Lovely - Edit

The atmosphere in here was really nice, staff were completely lovely and the person behind the bar offered to make iced tea as they did not have bottles. The food was really good and it's also very close to Glasgow Central which is really handy for the non-drivers! Very reasonably priced aswell! Will definitely go again and again!

We are sure to go there at least once every time we are in Glasgow.

Pros: Great food, Friendly and attentive staff, Cool atmosphere

Cons: Can be noisy on a Friday night
