Very nice vegan restaurant - Edit

An overall great experience.

It's a great vegan only restaurant, nice place, nice staff and good vegan food.

We took;
- Homemade fresh Grapefruit juice, Hibiscus, Ginger, agave syrup.
- Homemade Apple, fresh Cucumber, Ginger
- Guacamole (starter crackers)
- Gebackener Blumenkohl (starter cauliflower)
- Rice & Gamba bowl
- Green Curry bowl

Unfortunately, we had no room anymore for desserts, will be for a next time.

The passion and love of the staff for what they are doing, is great to see and is one of the lovely points of this restaurant.

Pros: Great vegan food, Lovely staff, Nice location

nicht so gut wie erwartet ... - Edit

Wir kamen am Sonntag, wenn es Brunch gab, dahin. Hab mir mehr frisches erwartet. Auch der KurkumaLatte war nicht sooo ... lag dann mit unangenehm vollem Magen im Bett.

Heavenly vegan bowls! - Edit

Oh wow...where do I even start? Okay...went to The Bowl, was expecting great vegan food. What I got was much more than that - it was pure heaven. It may sound very dramatic, but as someone who is very passionate about discovering new whole food dishes, I can't contain my excitement. I went with the buddha bowl, which had wild rice as the base, plus curry, sweet potatoes, shiitake, raw beetroot carpaccio (thanks for introducing me to raw beetroot, I've always baked mine but since tasting these, I've only been having them raw) and some greens and seeds on top. The flavours in the bowl were out of this world, plus the shiitake were one of my favourite elements about it even though I usually am not a fan of mushrooms! Service was excellent, very polite and sweet, and the food was delivered extremely quickly considering how busy the place was. Definitely recommend!

Pros: fresh, organic ingredients, great service, fantastioc food generous portions

Cons: quite busy

War schon mal besser - Edit

Bei einem Saft für 5,90 Euro bin ich von einem frisch gepressten Saft ausgegangen. Dass die 200 ml in einer gerade geöffneten Plastikflasche kamen hat mich sehr enttäuscht.

Die Bowl war "okay", aber das geht bei 12,90 Euro besser. Die Tomaten waren nicht mehr wirklich ansehnlich (lagen wahrscheinlich in Soße über Nacht im Kühlschrank). Ich war zum ersten Mal kurz nach der Eröffnung da, und ich muss sagen dass der Laden leider sehr nachgelassen hat - schade!

Trendiness over quality - Edit

I had high hopes of this place, of which I heard so much, and unfortunately for me, my balloon of hopes burst.

The menu, while being extansive, is a more-of-the-same: 5 not-so-different types of breakfast bowl meals, 4-5 variations on the theme of salad.
You flip through the 10-page menu looking for somwthing else... But that expactation is never fullfilled.

Food-wise, it's tasty, sure.
Nothing mind-blowing or worthy of "writing home about".
It's just not bad, but "not bad" is not the same as "good".

This place rides on the coat-tails of the "Veganz" vegan groceries store, with which it shares a building (ans which is also over-rated to my mind, but that's a different review, of course).
It's an OK place if, and only if, you're in the neighbourhood already.
Don't bother coming from the other side of this (huge) city just to try it out.
Its more buzz than substance.
Which is a shame really, cause I heard, from vetern Beeliners, that once upon a time, when the place juat opened, you would kill to eat such tasty food.

Shame the managment chose trendiness over quality.
Than again, business-wise I guess they knew what they were doing, the place was packed with tables vacated not staying empty for more than 5 minutes.

Pros: Super friendly staff

Cons: Trend over quality, Staff is friendly, not professional, Pricey, counting the average quality

Could be better. - Edit

Unfortunately a disappointing experience: little portions, nothing special but quite pricy in comparison.

Average Food, Overpriced, Terrible Service - Edit

This is my second time at The Bowl and both experiences were awful. I first went for my birthday a few months back and we were treated very poorly-- granted it was a busy night but the staff was unhelpful, unfriendly and we felt rushed. Having worked in hospitality, I know firsthand that these things can happen but nonetheless I was hesitant to go back. My friend is here for the weekend and she was keen to try it out. Our food was good (not great) and the service was horrible. The server was clearly having an off day but nothing could have prepared us for how terribly he treated us. After a few unpleasant, passive aggressive remarks, we then asked to pay for our meals. He then informed us that we couldn't pay with card as the machine was broken. My friend (who doesn't live in Berlin) asked him where she could withdraw money. With a smirk on his face he answered: "I don't know, Google it." He then felt the need to add "you can do the dishes if you can't find it." For a place that serves average food, that is severely overpriced and has unpleasant staff, I would suggest going elsewhere-- especially in a city like Berlin where you can get amazing food for next to nothing. Such a disappointing experience!

Pros: vegan

Cons: portion size, terrible service, overpriced

fresh, healthy, tasty - Edit

I went there a few times and it the dishes are always super yummy and fresh. Even my non vegan friends were amazed. It is a bit on the pricier side but totally worth the freshness and taste.

Pros: healthy, fresh, filling

Cons: doesn't offer proper breakfast

Too healthy - Edit

We went here once and we were amazed with the balance of the dishes. I am sure they are very healthy, but we somehow didn't get caught with the taste. I am not saying every restaurant should serve vegan junk food, I love salads and healthy food, nor I am saying this food was bad, just not our cup of tea. It isn't cheapest either, but restaurant is nice and staff friendly.

Pros: Varied, healthy dishes, Fresh

Cons: Not very tasty

Great for a fan of Bowls - Edit

I had the California Bowl, and the Banana Maca smoothie.
The bowl was good, much better than your average bowl; but still, nothing mind-blowing.

The staff was friendly; but there was just one person during lunch time, which made the service a bit slow.

Prices were ok; but perhaps a bit on the expensive side for Berlin?

In general, it's a good place to eat after your visit to Veganz and Avesu. :)

Pros: tasty, location

Cons: none

Amazing meal, gorgeous decor, 100% recommend - Edit

Visited here with my boyfriend early August. We decided against the set menu which was a starter, choice of two mains and a dessert for just under 20 euros, and just had a starter to share, a main each and no dessert - was perfect for us, and we eat a lot!

The starter was bruschetta with mushrooms and beetroot spread which was out of this world. I then had the falafel bowl, whilst my boyfriend had the bowl with sweet potato fries (i can't remember the name - California?) Both were incredible - the taste was impeccable. Literally can fault nothing with the meal.

The decor of the place is also so nice - very romantic, perfect for a couple, but also for friends for a nice meal. The prices were great (we're both students) and the staff were very accommodating. I would 100% return and would urge everyone to go.

Pros: Reasonably priced, Amazing food, Gorgeous, romantic decor

Cons: More dessert options would be great!

barn style with small dishes - Edit

I quite liked the style of the restaurant, wood with metal and arty lamps. However, the food didn't convince me really. I had a BBQ bowl and its taste was heavily dominated by pepper. The nougat cream for desser was very good. But both, the main bowl and the dessert were rather small and they do not serve coffe, only espresso.
Luckily, The Bowl is located besides a vegan shoe store and above a Veganz supermarket and a Goodies coffee shop. So you quickly can fill in any wholes in your guts if you like to. :P
There is a restroom and free Wifi. Be aware that they won't take 100€ bills because they once get scammed...

Pros: dessert, wifi, toilet

Cons: size of the dishes, no coffee

The best became one of the worst - Edit

If you go for the first time and don't find it amazing, as most of the old reviews say, it's because it has changed.
The Bowl used to be hands down the best vegan joint in Friedrichshain and one of the best in Berlin and beyond. But they have recently changed their menu for the second time. Their bowls used to be delicious and generous and varied, with thick sauces and a great balance of salads, carbs and proteins in a single big bowl. Now they seem like regular salads with a little extra. So something you could get anywhere for half the price. They also raised their prices in this new menu (which is very shoddy as an object compared to the previous one), and took away the pitcher with free tap water. Now one pays 1 euro for a little glass of tap water.

I look and design of the place is still great (though they also removed the hooks to hang coats) and the new menu seems to emphasize drinks over food, so if you just want go out to a nice looking place, drink and overpay for some okay vegan fare, I guess it's still sort of worth it. Also, once there, you can look at the shoes in the vegan shoe store, and get a cheaper and tastier dessert in the cafeteria on the ground floor. The service does seem to be better and quicker than before.

Nice, but lacked some taste - Edit

We ate here in the afternoon at 29th of june. We ordered an Asia Bowl and a Buddha Bowl. In the first place we got delivered the wrong bowls and it took quite some time to receive the right bowls.
My boyfriend got the Buddha Bowl and it was amazing! Such a pity I did not choose that one! Because my Asia bowl did not have any dressing, no peanuts or any other flavoring.
I was tired from walking the whole day so did not say anything (I was also the one pointing out the wrong bowl).
All together I would definately go there again though, Atmosphere is very good, love the interior design and the idea of everything in bowls is so nice.
Nice, healthy food!

Pros: Lovely Interior, with nice cozy corners, All vegan and healthy food, Very filling

Cons: My bowl was not complete, lacked flavoring, No handtowel/paper in toilet for washing hands

good but oily - Edit

I got the Asia Bowl which was great, but it was SO oily to the point that eating it no longer felt healthy. If they could use less oil of any kind, that would be much better. Lots of other good looking options on the menu!

Cons: Too much oil in bowls

When you are in Berlin you shouldn't miss TheBowl. Ask for the local Bowl and the raw cakes.

amazing - Edit

The Makro bowl was so so good. I need to figure out how to make my tempeh tastes like this one. They don't serve breakfasts on weekdays which is what we were hoping to eat, but maybe next time!
