First Review by nerissawvh

bien - Edit

fui a comer sin saber muy bien del tipo de comida que era, escogí gambas veganas y me costó 9.50 euros sin arroz. me vino muy rapido, sospecho que se hizo en microondas (no había nadie en el restaurante y lo escuché el sonido). fue bien pero me quemé. nada especial, estoy poco decepcionada por el precio. no es una restaurante que se va para disfrutar el ambiente.

Pros: me encanta gambas veganas

Cons: comida de microondas

Asian style fastfood, at a price - Edit

Nice food (no culinairy extravaganza nor refined, but good!), great variety on the menu. Lost of faux meats.
Large portions.
Atmosphere not so cosy. Everything was very ‘rushed’ (eg main dishes already came with appetizers on table).
Not so relaxed.

At about 15 euros for a main dish (main dish + noodles or fried rice) this seemed reasonably priced for prices we are commonly used to (in Belgium).
But as we later discovered, dining out in Barcelona is mostly a bit cheaper, so this was actually on the more expensive side.
Especially since it was more of a ‘fastfood’ experience.

Pros: lots of choice, mainly vegan, frienly, although little English spoken

Cons: atmosphere, very rushed, fastfood experience (literally), a bit more pricy than other options in Bcn

Great Vegan Noodles! - Edit

The service here was really great. I ordered take away in the storefront and they brought me potato pinwheel crisps while I waited.

The portion of food was good for the price. This meal was the first asian noodle meal I’ve had on my Euro trip satisfied me fully (so far).

I would definitely recommend Vegesana to anyone looking for some veggie Chinese food.

Pros: Variety of Vegan Options, Friendly Service, Quick & Simple Dinner Option

Some good dishes, overall low-quality - Edit

Finding a Chinese restaurant that makes Chinese food in their ancient and revered culinary tradition is rare, so far I have only seen one and this is not it. The food is mass-produced low-effort fast food that bears little resemblance to genuine Chinese cuisine.

That being said, some of the Chinese fast foods can be pleasant now and then, e.g. deep fried crispy tofu balls, crispy eggplant and curry dishes. The abovementioned are nice, but you can still not escape the feeling of yet-another-variation-on-a-cheap-theme, something most acutely felt in the unpleasant smell from the boiled rice.

If you're looking for fast food, then this is a fairly good place - if you eat in. The portion sizes of takeaways are about half (but at no discount). The prices are unreasonably high for the low level of quality (e.g. 6€ for fried rice that barely contains anything).

Pros: As far as Chinese fast food goes, it can be good, Vegan versions of popular Chinese fast foods, Fairly central location

Cons: Low quality, Unreasonably high prices, Low quality ingredients

very basic asian cuisine. - Edit

I wasn’t really impressed by the food here. Nothin too special or interesting about the food. Simple home made Chinese food. Could find more interesting food than this.

Pros: cheap menu., lots of choices, all vegetarian

Cons: not that great tasting food, nothing inventive or impressive

Simple vegetarian Chinese food - Edit

Vegesana isn't much different from any other average Asian restaurant, except they are fully vegetarian offering a notable range of vegan dishes.
I was there twice not so long ago, those were mostly satisfying visits. Service is good, English is understood. Food is fine, but there is not that much variety on the menu - many different dishes that are in many cases very similar to each other.
I really liked their "sopa de tres setas". The two mains I tried were mediocre, though. Especially one seitan dish that was just bland with a hint of soap(!).
Pricewise it was OK. Wi-Fi was good.
Since it is a family-run restaurant you'll see children or infants playing or sitting around at the desk area (this may take some getting used to).
Lack of vegan desserts.

Chinese faux meats - Edit

A Chinese venue that serves a plenty of faux meats. The menu is wide and mostly vegan with some vegetarian options that can made be vegan. I tried also some stuff that never seen in other Chinese places, such as water chestnut cake. The food is tasty (I liked especially tofu with nori and water chestnut cake). The staff is very nice and attentive.

Delicious and affordable - Edit

Their whole menu is vegetarian and the many vegan dishes are clearly marked with asterisks. Both dishes we tried were really tasty and for two mains, two portions of rice and two drinks, the total was €22. Definitely a good option if you're in the area!

Always coming back to Vegesana! - Edit

We've only been for lunch at Vegesana, but love it so much that it's a must visit for every trip to Barcelona! Favourites for us are the salt and pepper crispy seitan chunks and the fried rice with vegan prawns. Most dishes are vegan (illustrated with a *) although some rice dishes have the option to include egg so order carefully.

The staff here are really friendly and speak English, and generally on the ball if you order something that may or may not be vegan (i.e. egg optional). Looking forward to the next visit already!

Pros: Great range of vegan food, Really friendly service, Great value for money

Cons: Some items with egg, but clearly marked

Large portions but boring and uninspiring food - Edit

We went there a Saturday night where the restaurant were still fairly empty. The red wine I ordered was cold and had been in the fridge. The main course came in large portions, which was nice, but unfortunately didn't taste of much and was all in all uninteresting.

Tasty, simple Chinese food - Edit

The food here is nice, but nothing extravagant or mind-blowing! It's a very good option if you fancy Chinese food.

Everything is vegetarian and the vegan options are very clearly marked, with most dishes being adaptable (fried rice without egg, for example) if you want a vegan version.

Staff are very friendly and the service is quick!

Pros: Nice Chinese food, Vegan options clearly marked, Friendly staff

Cons: Quite simple food, Not the nicest decor

100% would recommend - Edit

Found this place thanks to the Happy Cow app. Was surprisingly better than I expected. Nice interior, cute little place. Helpful staff and quick service. The food was very well presented and I can't stress enough how tasty it was. Hands down the best vegetarian Chinese restaurant I've ever been too!

Barca's very own meat free Chinese - Edit

Barcelona has a 100% meat free Chinese restaurant. Spacious, friendly and easy to find and only 20 minute walk from the epicentre of Las Ramblas. It was truly a pleasure to eat here and be appreciated by the welcoming owner. Vegan choice is pretty impeccable. We ordered a vegetable and tofu curry and a mock pork sweet and sour served with boiled rice. I'm convinced that any meat eating fool could be persuaded this was real chicken and pig. Of course, it wasn't. Main courses range from €7-€9, boiled rice is €1.50, a bottle of Moritz is €2 and a bottle of house wine is €6. Maybe stay clear of the house wine, it's not the best. However, the budget certainly remains intact. Some days just cry out for a meal like this and you will find it here. The menu is quite extensive, you will not be left disappointed.

Pros: Great food, Friendly, Extensive menu

Asian vegan-vegetarian - Edit

What a great place! My girlfriend and I were looking for a vegan friendly Asian restaurant and almost passed it without noticing. Lovely owners, great food, quite cheap! If you're up for Asian food, no need to look much further.

Could be better - Edit

This is a small, nondescript place near Plaça Universitat which nonetheless boasts an extremely wide range of Chinese and other asian veggie options. The price is a bit higher than most Chinese places in Barcelona (perhaps to make up for lack of clientele due to being vegetarian?) and the serving sizes are a bit smaller, two characteristics which unfortunately rule Vegesana out for me as a place for regular meals.

There were several vegan options, but non-vegan ones were definitely in the majority. The dishes I ordered were tasty but not amazing, and left me hungry!

Pros: 100% veg, no meat

Cons: relatively expensive, smallish portions, not vegan

Can food - Edit

Had a dinner with friend there. I chose a seitan mushroom with bamboo and rice. Seitan tasted like right out of a can as well as bamboo and mushrooms. Had to add a lot of soya sauce and hot sauce to drown the stale taste. My friends had a curry rice. At least that had a okay taste although they said there should have been more curry. The deserts were mainly frozen stuff from supermarket.

Pros: The red house wine was nicely chilled

Cons: Cheap

Highly Recommended! - Edit

Finally a veg Chinese restaurant in Barcelona. Spanish food tends to be nutritionally imbalanced, so I am happy to have a tofu go-to when I need it.

Food is good and vegan options are marked, otherwise vegetarian.

Great peanut butter cookies!

Pros: friendly, good food, lots vegan options

Great Chinese veggie! - Edit

I had never been to a veggie Chinese restaurant outside China, and this was a most pleasant surprise! Rich veg* menu, broad selection of tofu- and seitan-based dishes, very good yuxiang eggplants.

Prices are perfectly affordable, nothing but a tiny bit over the average Chinese restaurant pricing.

Everything gets better if you can speak Chinese (the all-Chinese staff speaks Chinese and Spanish but the menu has English translations).

A great options among the many options for vegetarians and vegans in Barcelona.
