Smaller than other VJFBs

This place is a lot smaller and does not have cocktails or other freshly made drinks. The interior also looks different: black & white and harsh lighting. However, their food and drinks are as nice as I’m used from other VJFBs.

Cons: Small, No cocktails and fresh juices

Hi DaphD,

We are happy you enjoyed our food and drinks. The reason that this VJFB is different from the others is because this is our new concept called VJFB 2D and it is intended to make you feel as if your in a comic book since everything is two dimensional. Nonetheless, we thank you for your review and hope to see you back soon.

Team VJFB💚

So expensive. We had two burgers, fries and a sumoplate. The kombucha for 5,95 was about 0,2 liter- if we had known that, we wouldn’t took it.
In total this small meal was about 70€. Which is way overpriced.
In relation to our first visit the quality and amount of food decreased. Instead of flower blossoms as tasty garnish colorised mayo.

Pros: Fully Vegan

Cons: Expensive , Bored staff, No amounts/pieces labeled on menue

Hi Rajeshwari,


We are so sorry to read that you experienced our food as expensive. The reason for this is due to the fact that we develop, produce and distribute our key ingredients ourselves which makes it sometimes more expensive than average. On the other hand, for us making sure our customers are fully satisfied after visiting us is very important therefore we would appreciate it a lot if you could contact us via: so that we can try to resolve this to your satisfaction.

We hope to hear from you soon.

Great kapsalon!

Enjoyed my vegan kapsalon with a fresh jalapeños. Too much to try in one go, so I would definitely eat here again… But complementary paracetamol should be included for the decor, it’s crazy 😜

Updated from previous review on 2021-10-16

Pros: Great junkfood, No animal cruelty, Making vegan mainstream

Cons: Not very cozy, very bright light., Prices a bit steep, may be a hurdle for others

Amazing 😍😍

This restaurant was on my bucket list of vegan restaurants to visit and it didnt disappoint. I had the Mc Cruetly Free and my sibling had the Royal Smash Burger and we shared the iconic rainbow fries.Everything was perfect and we all thoroughly enjoy it. I was sad not to get to see the inside of the restaurant(due to covid😖)as I've seen insta post of there amazing decor but all in all an enjoyable experience😍Cant wait to visit again

A Vegan’s Dream

Fun, eclectic vegan restaurant in beautiful Amsterdam. Not only is everything vegan, your meal is beautifully presented and vibrant colors. We ate here twice and were only in Amsterdam 3 days. We both had a chikin sandwich that was just amazing.

Pros: Many choices on the menu, Price was in line with other restaurants , Fun, eclectic vibe

Cons: Couldn’t say I disliked anything

Simply delicious!

I went there for dinner with a friend, as we couldn’t decide which burger to eat we shared a Mc Cruelty Free and a Daddy Mc Chik’n and on the side we had the Bitter Balls and the Chickpea Fries. The food was delicious and I personally loved the chickpea fries. Can’t wait to come back!!

Pros: Everything is vegan , Friendly and helpful staff

I wanted everything off the menu!

As a vegan, there is nothing better than going somewhere and being able to eat whatever you like off the menu! This particular one is quite small but we visited on a Monday lunchtime, so had no issue getting a table. The lady who served us was super friendly and helpful.

Pros: Friendly staff, Excellent food, Nice vibe

Cons: Small place

Overrated and overpriced

Maybe this place was groundbreaking three years ago, but I had so much better vegan fast food in other locations. For the price they ask you would expect something mindblowing - it's nothing special. They dare to ask 7,50 for a bottle of kombucha.

Pros: making vegan snacks mainstream, great for instagram pics?

Cons: expensive, service could be happier

Good in a pinch

Purely vegan food but as the name warns - not healthy food. I did enjoy the “raw fish” dish which looked very real and the texture was amazing. I even asked what it was made of. Turns out - potato starch 😱 The bitter balls were also very good though I would have liked them better without the “kick”. Otherwise, there are primarily burgers and fries.

Pros: All vegan, Tasty food

Cons: Mostly deep fried, not many healthier options
