Top - Edit

Uns hat es so gut geschmeckt, dass wir innerhalb von 3 Tagen 2 mal da waren. Die Menüs sind super, man kann zwischen 4 Burgern wählen und zwischen Pommes oder Coleslaw als Beilage. Hervorzuheben ist auch der Basilikum-Limonendip, sowas von lecker. Preislich echt top und dann auch noch plastikfrei, was will man mehr :)

Pros: fantastic without plastic, preislich fair, Coleslaw sehr lecker

super tasty - Edit

This place is great! Plenty of seating inside, friendly staff who speak English. The food is delicious, and the meal combo is good value (€8-10 for a burger/wrap, chips/salad and a drink). The wrap was so big that I ate the other half later on for dinner!

Pros: vegan, friendly staff

Cons: no wifi, not the healthiest/mostly fried foods

Best vegan nuggets in town - Edit

The Swing Kitchen restaurants are diner-like designed and they are nice places to eat at.
My favourite food there are the Nuggets with garlic dip and Tiramisu.
A lot of people rave about how good the burgers are but personally i dont like them much. The patties are bland, way too much salad & cabbage mix in the bun and there are much better other options in town (like Veggiezz and Voodies)
However im happy to read they are expanding their franchise in the city.

Pros: Nuggets. Garlic dip. Tiramisu, Nice Diner style, Nice staff

Effective and delicious - Edit

We have ordered for take away a vienna burger, falafel wrap, chili burger, and some salads, along with three deserts (cookie sandwiched blueberry vanilla ice cream, tofu cheesecake, and poppy seeds raspberry yogurt cake) and everything tasted just perfect and looked very fresh. It was also prepared quite fast and it was interesting to observe how our meals are being prepared.

Pros: Taste, Speed, Quality of the products

Cons: No soups

Best burgers we had in Vienna! - Edit

These might be some of the best burgers I've ever had!! Fresh, tasty, big portions!
We had the Vienna burger with fries and the cheeseburger with onion rings and aioli (which was so delicious!) and a lemonade.
I was very pleased to find out that they use a biodegradable cup instead of plastic.
Had we stayed in Vienna longer, we would have come back

Pros: Delicious, No plastic, Big portions

Zum Probieren in Ordnung - Edit

Ich hatte mich sehr gefreut, endlich mal das swing kitchen ausprobieren zu können. Ich hatte den Chili Bürger, mein Freund den Cheese Burger. Es war ok, aber keine Geschmacksexplosion. Ich war enttäuscht. Das Tiramisu war unserer Meinung nach reiner Alkoholgeschmack, einzig allein der Mandel-Nougat-Kuchen war lecker. Wir werden da vermutlich nicht mehr hingehen

Pros: Menü-Preis ist angemessen, Pommes und Saucen (BBQ und Knoblauch) waren lecker

Cons: der Soja-Patty war sehr enttäuschend

good vegan fast food. - Edit

The vienna burger and vegan nuggets were good, the vienna dipping sauce was tasty. It works for fast food in a pinch. Always great to have vegan establishments and not just vegan options.

Pros: good vegan fast food

Cons: order taker not friendly at all.

Pros: Great food, great coffee

kulinarisches Fest - Edit

Auch wenn wir selber eher flexi-Veganer sind, möchten wir auf Reisen auf eine veganen Ernährung nicht verzichten. Swing Kitchen macht es einem damit mehr als leicht, denn selbst mit der Bezeichnung Fast Food kann man dennoch mit einer liebevoll gerichteten Köstlichkeit rechnen! Nur zu empfehlen!

Pros: freundliche Bedienung

Nice burgers, blooming hot inside though - Edit

It was a hot couple of days in Vienna, and it was also really hot inside Swing Kitchen.
Burgers were nice, didn't have to wait long. Communication was a bit brief and reserved.
Uncomfy chairs.
Toilets were messy.

All in all, nice fastfood, good value for money.

This is from a visit in 2016. More in detail here:

Fantastic vegan fast food - Edit

I visited the Swing Kitchen a week ago with two friends who are not vegans. We all were very impressed with the food quality, the taste, and deliciousness of the meatless burgers and falafel wrap. The staff was very polite and the ambiance was perfect.
I highly recommend the place and will definitely visit it again when back in Vienna.

Pros: Good location, Fast service, Flavorful food

Cons: Burgers were only with soy

Great atmosphere - Edit

The swing kitchen lives up to its name, with swing music playing and the waitresses dressed up in 50's style. The menu was extensive and I wish I could have tried more, but the Vienna Burger and Onion Rings were really delicious. I wanted to get a quick take-out and catch a train, but the place was packed so it took 12 minutes or so to get my food, not exactly quick but still decent given the crowd.

Pros: Great atmosphere, Many options, Delicious onion rings

Cons: Not exactly as quick as fast-food

Excellent - Edit

Great burgers that you can get in a meal deal with a drink and fries or salad. Plus other choices on menu. We had the burger meal deal which was excellent but unfortunately we were so full we just couldn't fit in dessert, although they looked amazing- cheesecake, tiramisu, doughnuts and more. Great value and nice music in the background.

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. I'd also rework the sauces and dressings, as they are a tad sugary, I find.

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! (*Insert sinister, maniacal cackle here*)

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, thankfully-piping-hot nuggets cooled down...until it transpired that they'd forgotten to include a fork. -.-

We all have those days!

Bottom line: If you're okay with wheat and/or gluten, have mastered the art of burger/wrap-eating, feel like some naughty food and desire to eat it in a really nice ambiance (or to-go without the guilt of being terribly wasteful), then this is a pretty great and increasingly ubiquitous option.

Updated from previous review on 2017-08-31

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, No hope for the wheat-averse, Not many GF options (just nuggets & salad)
