First Review by Vegan-Guerilla

Mittagstisch ganz ok - Edit

Sehr klein und über die Woche Recht leer. Bisher haben wir nur das Mittagstisch Angebot genutzt und ich muss sagen, dass es jeden Tag wohl Recht ähnlich ist und man wissen muss, was einem schmeckt, denn einige Gerichte sind etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Die kartengerichte klingen definitiv sehr lecker!

Pros: Verschiedenste Fleisch- und Fischalternativen, gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis, alles vegan(das Essen)

tasty + affordable vegan food - Edit

I really like this Restaurant. The food is fresh and yummy! I like both: the buffet and the a la card food. The owners are super nice and friendly.
My favorites are: Sommerrollen, Bin Thit Nuog Chay and homemade Lemonade or their Tea.
Check out their Facebook Page before visit the Thoi Lai Quan- they let you know if they need to close the Restaurant.

Pros: only vegan food

Just okay - Edit

We ate here in the evening - the menu selection was quite varied but all dishes are very focused on meat substitutes, there was nothing more vegetable-based which I found disappointing. The food we chose was ok, fairly flavoursome but nothing spectacular or that we would hurry to return for.

Pros: Reasonable priced

Cons: Service not over-friendly

Good Lunch - Edit

We came here for the lunch buffet on a recent trip to Hamburg. Very casual feel in the afternoon, more like a cafe. Buffet was inexpensive at 6 euro and although the food wasn't mind blowing, it was .o.k. There was a courgette soup, rice, several dishes containing tofu, other meat substitutes, or just veg. I ate quite a lot, because it tasted nice and I could pick and choose. We arrived at 1pm on a Thursday, and there was only another couple in there, but the food was a bit lukewarm - could do with a better warming system. I'm not sure what the evening a la carte menu is like, but for a cheap, filling vegan lunch, this did the trick.

Pros: Great value for money, Tasty, Filling

Cons: Lukewarm

Different and nice - Edit

We ate the lunch buffet and were both very satisfied. Yes, everything is very mild and light, but they have condiments on the table and you can adjust the food to your taste. We both had second helpings from the buffet, but did not feel wheight down as it is the case with richer food. The price is unbeatable and the atmosphere is simple, clean and friendly.

Pros: great price, light and tasty dishes, clean and friendly

not as good as expected - Edit

If you are used to the choice of great Vietnamese restaurants in Berlin, you will be very disappointed. The food tastes mediocre. At least we got full.

Best vegan offer in Hamburg - Edit

I've already became a regular customer and I bring my friends with me - for 5,90 you get a buffet which includes a daily soup, rice, and 6 different dishes, most of them with tofu or saitan, probably the best vegan offer in Hamburg. The menu is also quite cheap, but I went there only during day time when you get the buffet deal (even of Saturday, which is quite remarkable). I can't remember seeing cheaper prices in Berlin as well. The food is quite good and fresh (no gourmet, but still very enjoyable and you can try more then one dish) - the buffet if being refilled constantly.
It's important to say that the buffet is completely vegan each time. I haven't memorized the menu but I can't remember seeing a dairy product there - so vegans, come and help fill up this place because it doens't seem like they have too many customers, and it is one of the only vegan places in easten-Hamburg, so I'll be very disappointed if they'll have to close down.

Pros: Best value, Buffet with a good variety, In eastern Hamburg

Cons: Decoration is not their strongest side

Superb Food - Edit

Loved the evening menu here. Don't be deterred if you miss the lunch buffet. It's quiet in the evenings, but the food is delicious. Not overly spiced, delicate, carefully prepared by the Vietnamese chef. Lovey, clean, fresh restaurant. Very close to the U3 line too!

Pros: Delicate carefully prepared food, Inexpensive , Calm, peaceful restaurant

Authentic and delicious! - Edit

Thoi Lai Quan serves a range of Vietnamese vegetarian and vegan dishes. Not only is the food very tasty and reasonably priced, but also very authentic. I have lived in Vietnam for quite a while and of the many Vietnamese restaurants I have been to in Germany, Thoi Lai Quan offers the most delicious and authentic vegetarian/vegan food. Try e.g. the Bun Thit Nuong Chay (don't be surprised, it is meant to be served lukewarm) or the Bun Bo Hue and the Vietnamese iced coffee. Service is nice and friendly, too. In addition to the regular a la carte menu, lunch buffet is offered Mon-Sat, 11am to 4 pm, which I haven't had the chance to try yet.

Pros: Awesome vegan and vegetarian food, Authentic Vietnamese cuisine, Friendly and quick service

decent food for budget price - Edit

Nice little place with a lunch buffet, due to its small size perhaps not the most exuberant selection to choose from, depends on your expectations. We went there one mid-week afternoon between 15h and 16h hours and they were still restocking the buffet for us even though the place wasn't exactly busy any longer, which we thought was nice. We enjoyed the food and thought it was tasty (but it wasn't very hot/spicy if that's what you are after) and left with a full tummy, thinking that those 6 Euros per head were well spent.

Pros: decent food for budget price, easy to get to with public transport, friendly staff

Hier is(s)t man vegan. - Edit

Die Inneneinrichtung erinnert leider mehr an einen Imbiss, aber es sitzt sich sehr bequem, es ist supersauber und das Essen ist der Hit. Das Thoi Lai Quan lohnt allemal einen Besuch. Deshalb lasst Euch nicht durch Äußerlichkeiten abschrecken. Das Schöne ist, dass durch die Werbung auch Vegetarier angezogen werden. Es gibt durchweg vegane Gerichte, die nicht nur preislich top sind, sondern auch schnell und lecker serviert werden.
Wir werden immer, wenn wir mit Hamburgs U-Bahn unterwegs sind, einen Abstecher hierher machen. Absolute Weiterempfehlung!

Pros: Veganes Essen - Superlecker, Preis, Sauberkeit
