Totally Unique and Delicious - Edit

Amazing fusion dishes- we had the kimchi lasagna and toppognocchi- both absolutely delicious. As everyone has mentioned, Chef Mauro is a real sweetie and makes absolutely everything from scratch. Go, go, go, you won't regret it

Pros: Unique fusion dishes, Delicious hot drinks, Free focaccia!

Cons: Small but cosy seating area

Really interesting - Edit

First of all, the owner is the nicest guy. First thing, as soon as I enter, he offers me a piece of what I can honestly say is the best bread I've ever tasted. Then I asked for suggetions, and tried a (sorry for nor remembering the name of the dish) gnocchi and some korean pasta fusion, with a bit of spice, and tomato sauce, and sesame seeds... It was pretty amazing. And he even brought me more bread to scrape the plate. Flavours: amazing italian-korean fusion, MUST TRY.

Pros: 100% vegan

Cons: Medium

Quality food served with a smile - Edit

We visited "Vegan Yes" on our way back to Euston after a long day visiting family. We're so happy we walked 20 minutes out of our way to try some Italian/Korean fusion. We were treated to samples of homemade foccacia and bread/olive oil whilst our takeaway meals were prepped. We also had a Green Moringa latte whilst we waited, a first for both of us and it was absolutely delicious - the perfect pick me up for weary travellers. Onto the food, we had Lasagna, Toppognocchi and Kimchi salad, additional dressed spinach amd foccacia "for mopping up". It was all beautiful and it made our train journey back to Manchester much more enjoyable. Thank you "Vegan Yes" for being so friendly and providing us with much needed nourishment.

Pros: 100% vegan, Nutritional, Delicious

Vegan Yes is a great place to eat italian-korean delicious food. The place is very nice and the owner is soooooo welcoming! If you go to London you have to eat at Vegan Yes!

Fantastic food and super friendly service - Edit

Small spot in Brick Lane with tasty and creative italokorean dishes, based mainly around kimchi. The kimchi itself is absolutely delicious and very authentic, with the chef's own Italian touch and four different variations in vegetable and spices. The dark chocolate mochi are also great. Super friendly service. Highly recommended!

awesome food - Edit

Loved kimchi bibimbap and Mochi with sesame seeds. Amazing concept with dark chocolate coating. Superb taste. Chef Mauro is amazing person, he explained the meaning of bibimbap and the ingredients of the dish. He made us try matcha made of moringa which was amazing and the vegan cheese (which was not made of cashew!). We packed chocolate mousse and Nutella and another piece of mochi as we were very full. I will definitely go back again. This is my first time trying Korean food as being vegan it is difficult to find such food. Another amazing thing was he has a poster of the Chakras and he has tried to have all the colors in the kimchi or the food. Must visit ! He has two restaurants in London.

Amazing service and wonderful food - Edit

If you enjoy kimchi, you will love this little gem! Chef Mauro is as friendly as his food is delicious. It's a wonderful fusion of Italian and Korean cuisine, and well worth a visit! The place is small, and this is not fine dining, but the food, flavors, and service is too-notch.

Recommendation = Lasagne - Edit

I popped in to pick up lunch during their opening week. The owner was very friendly.
The lasagne was delicously rich and came with a little side of spinach. I could easily have been more adventurous, there was lots of Italian-Korean fusion, but it am always tempted by lasagne. The chocolate mousse was good too. I particularly like the finishes - a sprinkling a vegan parmesan on the lasagne and toasted sesame seeds on the dessert.
It was cash only when I visited so something to bear in mind.
(Visited early September)

Pros: Fab food, Very welcoming

Cons: Limited seating

Genial - Edit

Super petit resto, l'accueil est très sympathique, et leurs plats sont audacieux et savoureux! Pour les amateurs de kimshi, foncez. Je vous conseille aussi le Nutella maison, bien meilleur que l'original.
Pas timides pour partager leurs secrets de fabrication les chefs organisent des cours de cuisine.

Pros: pas cher ,plats à emporter

Cons: toilettes dans la cuisine mais accessibles

yummy fusion food - Edit

I had a dish made of Korean rice sticks and Italian gnocchi in a tomato sauce with sesame seeds. It was nice and was filling but not so filling that I felt bloated :) my dad had a bibimbap which he enjoyed. We also got an almond milk latte (£1.60) and a golden milk (£2), and we got two of the chocolate mochi balls which are delicious - we took them home and my mum said they were the best she's ever eaten! They have red bean paste inside. Overall the cost was around £22. The staff were so friendly, the chef was passionate about his food and it's a small, cosy venue. It has lovely vibes and a nice menu. Next time I would try the homemade mousse or Nutella.

Pros: all vegan , friendly staff, cool fusion

We had a very tasty spinach parmesan salad followed by a kimchi lasagne at the Brick Lane store. Where else can you get such a creation! It was delicious, and Mauro is a very friendly person. Next we will try the other location

Healthy, creative, tasty! - Edit

What a great (and different!) addition to Brick Lane!! The cuisines served here are Italian, Korean and Italian-Korean creations! Very tasty, healthy and made with love.
When I arrived I was welcomed by Mauro, the chef and owner who explained all their dishes and the preparation hours behind their tomato sauces, kimchi, homemade bread, pickles, vegan eggs and meats etc. They do everything from scratch! And you can tell by the flavour.
Mauro very kindly gave me a sample of their kimchi bruschetta, topped with tofu egg, on homemade bread (so tasty!!) and their pickled cabbage rolls (my personal favourite!). I liked the food so much that I wanted to try the lasagna, so I took it to go for dinner (delicious!). The portion was so generous that I left half of it for lunch the following day. Do not miss!!

Pros: Tasty, homemade, quality food, Very affordable, Super friendly service

One of the best vegan places in London - Edit

The food is delicious and very original (fusion of Korean and Italian). Everything I've tried has been fantastic and Mauro is a great host. Don't leave without getting at least one of the dark mochi..

really nice takeaway place - Edit

It is a really tiny place that doesn't really have room to eat inside but the food is great and the staff is even greater.

We had kimchi lasagna and a really fulfilling potato dish. The owner gave us a bottle of water to go (no charge) and some sundried tomato bruschetta for tasting. They are so nice.

Pros: friendly staff, good location , tasty food

Cons: no seating , few options
