Best panna cotta

Overall tasty food and friendly staff. We tried a few different sushi rolls and a dish with vegan duck. Their best items that I was really impressed by were the desserts.

yum but nothing too crazy

quite tasty and big menu. especially the mock meat variety is huge! I don’t mind paying more if the food is worth it… but I felt it’s a bit too expensive for what you get.

Pros: very quick, friendly staff, a lot of mock meat

Cons: pricey

The food is good, but not exceptional.

Start accepting card payment or at least update Happy Cow to inform customers in advance.

Pros: Good mock duck

Cons: Don’t accept card payment

Had a very tasty mango salad as a starter and a tofu/vegetable main dish. The food was fresh and delicious. Service was great. In summer it had nice outdoor seating.

Amazing vegan food

Easily one of the greatest places I've ever been to. Fully vegan with an astonishingly big menu to choose from. I went for the vegan duck and was certainly overwhelmed.

Pros: Amazing food, Big menu, Outdoor seating

Vegan duck curry and plenty of options

As the reviewers before said, the vegan duck is fantastic. I never had real duck but apparently it comes close to the original. They serve a lot of different curries with different protein to choose from (Vegan duck, vegan beef, tofu...), so there are really a lot if options. We chose the peanut curry which was tasty but a bit to thin for me. Summer rolls were also good

We ate good food but not worthy the money. Maybe we chose the wrong things... The vegan chicken and the tuna/salmon in the sushi were very tasteless.

Great food!

It's been a couple of years since we were last here but this was one of our favourite places we ate in Munich. The food was fresh and well cooked and the mock meat was incredible.

Leckeres Essen und zuvorkommende Bedienung

War mit einem Kollegen, welcher zum ersten Mal veganes Essen ausprobiert hat, in diesem Restaurant Wir saßen an einem Zweiertisch vor dem Restaurant in einem ansprechend hergerichteten Außenbereich. Wir wählten eine Vorspeise und als Hauptgang das rote Curry mit veganer „Entenbrust“. Das Essen war lecker und wir konnten nochmal kostenlos Reis nachbestellen. Man hätte beim Essen noch etwas mehr mit den Gewürzen spielen dürfen und die Präsentation bzw. die Anrichtung verbessern können für den letzten Stern. Es war jetzt keine Offenbarung, doch das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmte hier, das Essen kam schnell und die Bedienung (sehr freundlicher Herr mit Brille) war ausgezeichnet.
Mein Kollege war begeistert und möchte gerne wieder vegan essen gehen. Geschmack geht halt immer noch vor Argumente, wenn man andere Menschen für eine vegane Ernährung begeistern möchte.

Pros: Freundliche Bedienung, Kurzfristige Reservierung möglich, Gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

Super lecker zum Mitnehmen

Wir haben telefonisch aus einer großen Auswahl bestellt, es wurde uns in umweltfreundlichen VYTAL-Behältern übergeben. Schnelle Zubereitung, freundlicher Kontakt und das Essen war mega lecker. Besonders die Kakao-Mochi zum Nachtisch.

Pros: Riesen-Auswahl, Top Qualität, Gute Preise

Delicious vegan "duck"

I went here for dinner with some friends.

The place was pretty small and beautifully decorated with paintings and more. The lighting was normal, so there wasn't really a cozy vibe at all. Nevertheless I liked the atmosphere of the place. 3/5

There were tons of options to chose from on the menu - it was almost a bit overwhelming. We spent a long time deciding what to pick. In the end I had a vegan duck dish, a miso soup and a tuna nigiri - just because I was curious what their vegan tuna would be like.

Vegan Duck with sweet&sour sauce: Tasty! 4/5
Miso Soup: Tasty! 4/5
Tuna Nigiri: Looked nice but had no flavor. 2/5

All-in-all I was satisfied with my meal, and so was everyone else that I was with (all non-vegans).

I'd be happy to go here again sometime and try something else.😄


Went here again with a friend and was again very satisfied. This time I took the self-rolling Vietnamese spring rolls and the fried banana balls for dessert. It all tasted great! Also, I wasn't sure how rolling my spring rolls worked so I asked the waitress and she was so kind taking her time showing me and even rolled my first spring roll😄Great service!

I am updating my rating to 5/5. I am happy that this place exists and would definitely recommend it.

We had the vegan duck in peanut sauce, which was really good. The chicken on the other hand was a little squishy and rather tasteless. The mochis were good, but nothing special.
Overall it was okay, but didn’t meet our expectations.

Best Asian Ever!

My non vegan aunty and I went there for dinner! Its a cute little place, the owners are super nice and make you feel very welcome. The Food was just amazing!! My aunty is not vegan, and she is very picky, she usually never really enjoys my food, but she LOVED eveeerything we had. We shared the tom yum soup, spring rolls and gyozas. We both were so excited about all the amazing flavours, the food is SO GOOD, wow! The sauces they make are next level,honestly never had even as a not yet vegan, such delicious sauces! The main meals we had (vegan duck with rice and i think some kind of lemon grass sauce and beef with with some sort of thai basil sauce was just incredible. The beef was nothing special (the only thing we didnt enjoy that much) but the sauces are honestly the best I EVER had. For me its a 10/10 and I will definitely come again. My aunty also said we can go again, so it omnivore apporved 👍

We were four, had six starters and four main dishes, everything was really good, from the « duck » in peanut sauce to the sushis.
The service was really good, nice and no waiting time (unlike other comments, so maybe it improved !)
The terrasse was really nice, we really had a good time.
I highly recommand !

Pros: Lots of options, Nice terrasse , Tasty authentic food

Cons: Cash only
