Pre gig food

This really hidden away and you have to go under a building to get here.
They had a busy day so there were limited options. Burger, gyros and tatties are perfectly decent.

Pros: 100%, Staff , Food

Hidden gem

So pleased to support this small venue, tucked away outside of the city centre, with a lovely area for sitting outside on a cool sunny night. A menu full of dishes I love. Always happy to eat somewhere I don't need to worry about being given something non-vegan, and because it doesn't sell alcohol it's usually easy to get a seat and not half full of people nursing drinks.

Chips with seitan!

Messy and tasty food. Lots of sauces. Have only used as take away. Looking forward to a visit when winter is left behind.

Lovely place for lunch

I wasn't really expecting much from this place but it's a wonderful place for lunch. I had the pepperjack cheese and bacon "smash" burger and it was a wonderful burger. The actual patty, whatever it was, was delicious and the toppings really made it.

I can imagine this would be a great place to get a take out from, if you are passing by or live in the area as they seem to serve your food in carry out containers anyway.

Staff were lovely, venue was nice, and it's a bit of an oasis being as it not really near anything that great for vegans.

It's across the road from Ranjit's kitchen which is famously good for vegans, round the corner from Kurdish which many claim is the best falafel in Glasgow, plus a stones throw from Victoria Road and Shawlands which both have a lot of reputable vegan options. Hardly an oasis.

Lovely courtyard setting and flavours

We sat outside (the sun has been lovely) and we ordered the patatas bravas and the jackfruit banh minh. My partner ordered the crushed pakoras. All of the food was really nice. Lots of flavour and good sized servings.

Lovely service and great courtyard to sit in

Nice food and atmosphere

We came here for a lunch - itโ€™s a lovely little space with a few tables to shelter from the weather with a nice atmosphere. The menu is quite small but the food was very nice and filling. A good addition to the area.

Super lovely atmosphere

So much love in this food I swear. Usually Iโ€™d order from Ubereats but itโ€™s worth it going in for a sit down lunch! Iโ€™d recommend the batatas bravas and Mac and cheese

Pros: 100% vegan, Vivi obviously puts love in to his food

Cons: Small space

Vivi's is AMAZING

This place is so good. The menu is always rotating so there's something new and tasty to try and it's a really nice spot to hang out with outdoor seating away from the main street. Honestly some of the tastiest food in southside!

Pros: Everything

Delicious vegan southside

Wonderful addition to the southside with a variety of satisfying choices! Had the burger, schwarma and a few other dishes and it definitly deserves five stars for the food alone.

So good!

We were totally unaware that there was a new vegan spot in Glasgow, but so glad that we stumbled upon Viviโ€™s. Weโ€™ll definitely be back! Food and service was great. We got the cubano sub and sweet potato & bean burger, both delicious and fairly priced. Looking forward to trying the rest of the menu!

Really great

Had the Mushroom burger, cheese toastie, shawarma and seitan fries. Everything was great, really loved the flavour of the seitan. Good value for money as well, definitely coming back soon.
