Vegetasia - Experimental Soya Since 1988/ Vegan restaurant - Edit

The Vegetasia is vegan restaurant that serves experimental Taiwanese cuisine.
You will find everything here from Tofu, Tepan Yaki, Dim Sum to Udon noodles. All meat dishes (pork, chicken etc.) are vegan mock meats. During lunch time they offer both a buffet and an "A la carte" menu.

Although the restaurant is a Chinese restaurant it does not have the look and feel of a typical Asian restaurant, but instead has a more upmarket atmosphere with a classic/modern look (contemporary western furniture/white tablecloths/silver cutlery etc.).

The service is a bit unorganized and at times one has to wait quite some time to receive the ordered items or has to reorder the items again if they are not served in the first place.

All in all, I would recommend the restaurant because of the outstanding food and the upmarket atmosphere.

Delicious buffet - Edit

Vegetasia is located close to Bahnhof Mitte in a calm neighbourhood. For 9,50€ you get lunch buffet, which offers a wide range of tasty dishes, even including soups and desserts. Their friendly staff are happy to offer you a glass of tap water.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Nothing is organic.

Cons: no english menu available

Asian buffet - Edit

Fully vegan buffet and menu choices. The staff are super friendly and attentive. Really good choice of tofu in many ways.
The miso soup had good flavours but didn't need the silken tofu in it as it tasted a little strange altogether.
You get given a little pressie when you leave too

Updated from previous review on 2017-01-02

Pros: Staff, choice of tofu

Cons: Miso Soup

Excellent vegan food - Edit

The restaurant offers a self-service buffet of vegan food. The dishes are numerous and incredibly diverse. Vegan food that is so creative and varied you will not find elsewhere. Everything is made with supreme skill, attention, and refined aesthetics.

Pros: buffet of highly professional vegan food, diverse food, fair price

Cons: Opening hours are split, The location is not central

great vegan buffet - Edit

We went here and got the lunch buffet which was €12.50 each. It's quite expensive but so are most places in Vienna. You can eat as much as you want and there's a good selection of food. I really liked the soup and and some of the noodles. They even had sushi! I asked if everything was vegan and the server told me everything but the sweets, there were some gummy bears that he said weren't vegan. I thought that was a bit odd, why not get vegan ones or just forget the sweets altogether? It also made me worry other things might not be vegan and he forgot to tell me. The atmosphere wasn't as good as other vegan places in town and I felt a bit awkward and uneasy asking questions to the staff. Overall it was good.

mixed feelings about food and service - Edit

While the interior looks tidy and modern I don't find it comfortable. I always feel a bit uneasy there. Whenever possible I take a seat outside in the Schanigarten, located in a quiet side street. The all you can eat lunch buffet is a great offer. Many dishes from starters to deserts. Even vegan sushi is included which is rare in Vienna. Interesting specialties on the menu like steaks made of mushrooms and creative fake meat dishes. Some of them don't really differ from the usual "Chinese" stuff and are therefore overpriced, I think. If you eat (and drink) a la carte be prepared to spend 20 € minimum per person. Why it took them so long to become entirely vegan is beyond me. I mean who goes like "Hey we absolutely must eat at vegetasia cause they put eggs in their soup!"?? In general the staff is friendly and helpful. On one occasion they forgot about my order. I was really hungry and really pissed. Oddly, they didn't seem to care about me being the only person at the table not being served anything. I needed to inquire for my order and they didn't make any effort to compensate me for 80 minutes of desperate waiting for food. On an other instance, when I was going for the all you can eat buffet, I needed to get a new plate because I had spilled some of my drink over it. When I asked the waitress for a new plate she said if I got a new plate I would have to pay another 12,50 buffet charge. Are you serious? Are they so short of plates? Another day I had a really hard time to explain the waiter that I wanted a rice brandy but both his english and his german were quite poor. However, it's a decent restaurant with a fascinating menu and i'll go there again. But dare you let me starve again!!

Pros: great buffet , rare specialties , outside seating

Cons: a la carte is expensive, service quality not consistent , varying food quality

Restaurant hours were incorrect - Edit

We arrived at 7:00 pm. The restaurant's website stated that they were open until 10:30 pm. When we entered the restaurant, we were told by a staff person that it is closed and then that person told us that it closes at 8:00 pm. We pointed out that it was just a little after 7:00 pm. The staff person, who was unfortunately not very friendly, said that even though it was almost an hour until closing, they weren't cooking any more that evening.

great lunch buffet - Edit

I went to Vegetasia for lunch and I was surprised by the huge vegan buffet. I tried the vegan sushi, the spring rolls and some noodles and fake meat dishes. They were all very good and not too heavy.There was also a vegan pudding as dessert and fruit. The buffet price is around 12 euro per person, which is a very good price for an all-you-can-eat buffet. It is not too far from Belvedere so it is the perfect place to go for lunch if you are visiting the palaces and museums there.

Pros: vegan buffet for lunch, good price

Cons: none

favourite place in vienna! - Edit

i LOVE vegetasia! there's hardly any place in vienna that beats the service, taste and variety of food. I usually come here for the buffet whenever i'm in town.
the main courses usually change while the starters & soups stay the same. there's also great sushi (with mock salmon that looks ridiculously real!) and your usual spring rolls etc.
i love how the food is seasoned and that there's always something new to experience. the soup isn't vegan (contains egg) but will be prepared vegan upon request! the service is outstanding! i love their fried peanut-balls. they once weren't included in the buffet (as said, it changes) so i told the lady how much i love them and can't wait for the next time eating here so i hopefully would be able to taste them again. she went off and brought us a portion of them complimentary for our table (each of us - 4 people - were able to have one).
price might not be the cheapest but the variety & taste of food is worth every cent!
location might be a little out of your way, depending where exactly you're at but it's only a short walk from the underground and the tram is pretty much in front of the door.

Pros: taste, variety, service

Cons: location, price (but worth it)

Disappointing - Edit

The restaurant has a very clean, angular vibe but it is not inviting or cozy. We received limited assistance translating the menu. Had we been more persistent we could have asked for additional choices but clearly the waiter was anxious to move on. He was nice enough but of limited help. The food was fair. The flavors were average, nothing memorable. Either be a German speaker or translate the menu items before coming in order to have choices. Cash is preferred.

Cons: Average food, Not an inviting venue

lots of fried food, expensive buffet, - Edit

After a while I decided to have lunch with a friend at Vegetasia as I had on mind buffet is good value. I honestly didn't check the price before and it took me by surprise they are charging 12,50€ for Buffet and 0,60€ for a glass of water!!!!
If they had all fresh delicious healthy food Id understand the price but not for mainly fried greasy dishes! The non fried options were rarely available and I was just wondering why they have such a bad offer...
I know they can cook good dishes but the buffet is bad quality, deep fried unhealthy dishes and way too expensive!!!!
I'm not returning as there are plenty of yummy good value places and places where I like to spend more money for quality!!!! Sry for the review but you get served what you deserved that's my way of thinking!

Pros: Nice atmosphere, cruelty free cuisine

Cons: too expensive, lots of fried food, they charge for tap water!!!

Vegetasia - Modern flavours of Asia - Edit

Taiwanese and other Asian dishes in a modern fashionable restaurant. Good food and friendly professional service. I had the tofu balls in a mango salsa sauce - the mixture of mango and lemongrass was totally delicious and a new taste sensation for me.

Nice atmosphere and recommended.

Pros: Great relaxed modern decor, Well cooked food - great range of choice, Good service

Cons: Maybe a tiny bit pricey for the food alo

Nice atmosphere and nice food - Edit

I had dinner at Vegetasia two days ago. When I entered I was welcomed by a waitress who didn't speak English (actually, I must admit that I cannot speak German at all, so it's my fault in the first place!), thus she sent for the waitress who did speak English! She was very kind and at the end I ate a mock-meat dish with the least amount of fried things I could find in the menu. Yes, the menu is chocked full of fried stuff (mockmeat, mostly, like soy "chicken").

Then at the end I asked for the strawberry and coconut pudding and it was a work of art. Basically, I felt guilty for eating it, it was gorgeous! And good taste too. As for beverages, I had water.

The English-speaking waitress checked a couple of times if everything was fine, and it was. I enjoyed eating at Vegetasia, and I normally avoid Chinese and Taiwanese restaurants (mostly because I avoid fried stuff as much as possible).

I paid 20EUR, which I guess it's reasonable (at lunchime they have a much less expensive buffet).

I think this should be a 5 cows review, although if you want to avoid mockmeat and fried stuff then maybe scale it to 4!

Pros: Rich portions, Kind staff

Cons: Too much fried stuff in the menu...

Very different experience to others! - Edit

I felt compelled to write a review as our experience was so different to those below. Maybe we went at a good time (Sunday evening) or maybe they have new staff, but the service was great, really friendly and helpful (and English speaking, fortunately for me and my rubbish German!). I found it impossible to choose from the mouthwatering menu so we went for the set menu and I wasn't disappointed!

I can't recommend this place highly enough. My only slight complaint was that it was a bit hard to tell from the menu what was vegan, although again the staff were really helpful with that.

Not an easy review to write - Edit

I visited this restaurant back in June 2014. Let me start off by saying that the food here is AMAZING! Seriously, it's and incredible vegan experience. Everything we tasted - was great. But... I must admit the service here was questionable, to say the least. The restaurant closes at 23:00 and on both times we attended Vegetasia - we were literally kicked out by 22:59. Now, I understand that we could have arrived earlier but there's a very disturbing feeling you get when someone wracks up all of the tables and chairs around you and shuts off the lights (!) while you're still eating. Also, the second time we were there, we didn't receive one of the dishes we ordered - it wasn't on the final bill but I cant help but wonder, if this was dropped due to the closing of the kitchen...perhaps they thought we ordered enough and ignored the dish? I would have given them a full 5 stars but I being kicked out was just too much for me... too bad, really.
Oh, also - very poor English skills, even-though they offer an English menu.

Pros: good food, nice decor
