Amazing food - Edit

We visited Swing Kitchen twice during our stay in Vienna. We tried their burgers and wraps. They have probably the best burgers and tiramisu we have ever eaten. Really generous food portions for an affordable price.

Pros: Amazing food including desserts, Generous portions, Friendly atmosphere

Cons: None

Amazing burgers - Edit

Maybe the best vegan burger I've ever had. I had the chilli burger with added vegan cheese and it was amazing. I really wasn't expecting it to be so good. Drinks were also nice and a pretty decent price. I really would recommend this place. The staff were also very friendly and spoke good English if your German is a little dodgy (or non-existent).

vegan fast food! - Edit

swing kitchen is amazing! the coleslaw is to die for! though, the vegan chicken nuggets were ok...fantastic vegan ice cream sandwiches! overall the restaurant reminds of 'by CHLOE' the vegan fast food chain in the u.s.

Some great options and some not so good - Edit

We ate a Vienna burger menu and a cheese burger menu - the vienna burger was great, but the cheese burger left us disappointed. Since we didn't want to eat cabbage, we asked the waitress to left it out, but she didn't tell us that it meant that also other vegetables were left out from the burger. The cheese tasted weird and overall the burger tasted weirdly sweet. The garlic dip however was good, but the fries weren't crispy. We also had a slice of cheese cake and that was good. So overall some dishes are really good, while others were disapponting.

Pros: price was ok

Top burgers - Edit

Casual and simple but really high quality burgers for a fast food place. Groovy atmosphere, very clean and comfortable (none of the dodginess of some fast food places). Good range of burgers and perfect chips. Nice swing music too!

Pros: Great burgers, but perfect chips!, Nice atmosphere

Friendly & Filling - Edit

The food here is tasty, filling and vegan style 'fast food'. The cakes are also very good. It has a good energy, and we ate in once and bought food there on two other occasions. If you are a 'street food' person, and are happy eating with your hands, then this is ideal; it was a little on the messy side for me - I like crockery and cutlery. Portions are generous.
For me this place is very good - for street foodies it would be excellent.

Pros: Portions, Friendly atmosphere, 100 % Vegan

'ok' ..not bad but also not exceptional - Edit

I don't know what it is.. I would like to like it but I can't. I gave them several chances and I was a frequent customer of Schillinger, so I'm sympathetic.
Somehow the burgers are all bland and the rest can be easily done at home (everyone can put fries and nuggets in a fryer). The only thing that's really standing out are the sauces. I don't know what it is but the burgers are just boring.
It's great that a business like this thrives in Vienna, but when it comes to taste I can't give them more than 3 stars.
Just does not keep up with international standards. Better than Schnitzelhaus but even in Vienna there are better vegan places.

Pros: vegan chain, nice concept

Cons: bland food

great atmosphere, great desserts, ok burgers - Edit

Counter service with swing music. Delicious dessert and fresh orange juice. Definitely coming back for the burgers!

Came back for the burgers which were good value in a menu deal, but they were not as good as in veggiezz. Despite asking for no tomato, my burger had a lot of tomato salsa.

Simply great - Edit

It's perfectly located next to the library and the Freihaus of the Technical University of Vienna, so its students always have veggie options nearby. I managed to convince my entire university project team of hardcore meat eaters to go and grab lunch at Swing Kitchen and not only were they all pleasantly surprised by the offered options, but they stated that they never expected vegan food to be so delicious.

Pros: Good food for good prices

Cons: Not so comfortable seats

vegan oasis - Edit

I tried everything on menu and everything was delicious, not a single dish was disappointing. All Burgers have delicious sauces and fresh veggies and the vegan Tiramsu was the best I've ever eaten. I ate there every day during my one week stay in Vienna and never experienced any inconsistencies. The staff was always friendly and helpful, too. This is a vegan inspiration! Thanks for thinking about the guest experience and creating a vegan oasis.

delicious burgers and eco friendly too - Edit

This is a great vegan place, lovely design and delicious food. Was in Vienna for 3 days and went here 3 times! Burgers are good with lovely texture and bread is nice too. Coleslaw also good but portion size is maybe too big and fries good too. I tried cheeseburger and smoked tofu ciabatta as well as nuggets. All really good! If you get the menu it's just a few euros more but you can get fries or coleslaw and a drink included Another great thing is they use special plastic which is fully biodegradable! Awesome!!

Nice and comfy place, good located, prices ok.

Love this place...usually. - Edit

I've made many a visit to both of Swing's current downtown locations, and most of them have been astounding. The music...swingy, the tables clean, the service quick, the staff nice, the plastics biodegradable, the ethical values stellar and the food tasty, if not a wee bit messy (but that's mostly to be expected with massive burgers and bulging wraps, though I wish they'd cut the latter in two). If I was allowed to change anything, I'd add both 'vollkorn' and gluten-free bread options, a low-carb lettuce 'bun', sweet potato pommes and perhaps a plainer, tidier burger to the menu.

It's a great concept, and I was absoloutely engulfed in schadenfreude when I noticed that their fourth location is taking over a McDonald's; this place isn't just attracting full-on vegans, and my dear non-veggie friend (who often seems to want to eat here more often than I do) is most certainly a testament to that. I hope they and their peers grow until each and every last relic of the Golden Arches is eradicated from Vienna, Austria, Europe and, hopefully, the planet.

In all of my visits, the food has been expectedly well-prepared too - except for this last instance. After waiting for a rather inordinate amount of time for my seemingly-simple, 'zum Mitnehmen' (take-away) order of gluten-free nuggets and a garden salad and walking to a nearby park because the restaurant (and inexplicably/seemingly all of Vienna, for that matter) was packed, I realised that my nuggets were still very much frozen inside. Obviously I went back and asked for a new batch, which they promptly provided, but not without a strange, dubious look as well.

Thinking all had been sorted, I returned to the park and proceeded to eat my salad whilst the new, piping-hot nuggets cooled down...until it transpired that they'd forgotten to include a fork. -.-

We all have those days!

Updated from previous review on 2017-03-03

Pros: All-vegan, all the time!, Oily comfort of conventional fast food, sans guilt, Environmentally conscious in all regards

Cons: Messy food - trying to eat daintily is futile, A wee bit pricey, Not many GF options (just nuggets & salad)

The best burgers in the world - Edit

I've been to many many vegan burger places and had heaps of substitute meals but this place has topped them all. The Vienna burger (Schnitzel) was the best damn schnitzel I've ever tasted, I sat there for a while wondering if I had made a mistake and it wasn't all vegan but no its just that damn good! Will definitely have to try and get back again! Really decent pricing too! Only 18 euro for two meals!

Pros: cheap, great quality , friendly staff

Simple and delicious - Edit

I always go to Swing Kitchen when I am in Vienna.

I just like the fast service, delicious burgers and french fries (with various dips!). I am also very happy that they have a squeezed orange juice, to add a bit of my C vitamin intake in this cold Austrian winter.

The employees are polite, the music puts you in a cozy mood, and when you are done eating your burger, you can always switch to some deserts ;)

Pros: Delicious food, Nice staff, Reasonable price
