Numerous options!

I had a great time at xu’s! But I didn’t realize they were only cash, and I didn’t have any cash on me nor my international debit card was somehow working! After a bit of a panic there, the waiter was extremely calm and helpful and let me do an online transfer! I’m thankful she was so chill.

Oh the food was exceptional!!

Many years

They've been around for many many years, even back when it was hard to find vegan options anywhere.
Their food is really good, big portions, staff is always friendly.
Perfect for when you're craving this kind of food. The garden is nice as well.

Pros: Great taste, Many(!) choices, Friendly staff

Great vegan food

Almost the entire menu is vegan. The Food is great, the portions are big and the staff is very friendly. Also the buffet is great, non vegan food is clearly labeld with a star.

Für uns gibt es kein besseres Restaurant

Immer wieder einen Besuch wert - wann immer wir in Österreich sind statten wir dem Xu's einen Besuch ab. Das Essen ist ein Traum. Das Buffet ein kleines Schlaraffenland!

Wir haben weder in Österreich noch in Deutschland ein ähnlich gutes Restaurant gefunden. Nicht mal im Ansatz....

Pros: Bestes Essen - noch dazu ohne Glutamat , Buffet, Speisekarte ist Wahnsinn

Cons: Es gibt nichts Negatives!

😋Just go there😋

✨A Spectacular Journey into Vegetarian and Vegan Gastronomy✨

I had the privilege of dining at a place where every dish celebrates the diversity and rich flavors of vegetarian and vegan cuisine. This is a haven for food lovers who prefer their meals to be plant-based.

The restaurant presents a myriad of dishes, each featuring an array of unique tastes. A noteworthy aspect is their commitment to inclusivity - any dish that is not inherently vegan can be customized to suit a vegan palette, ensuring that everyone's dietary preferences are well catered for. However, rest assured that each dish on offer is at least lacto/ovo vegetarian.

We chose a mixed three-course menu designed for a party of three or more. Priced reasonably at approximately €20 per person (excluding drinks), the menu featured an impressive variety of vegetables and different mock meats (and even vegan takes on popular seafood dishes are offered).

What took us by surprise was not just the superb taste, but the sheer volume of the food served. Each dish arrived in generous portions that overwhelmed us with their taste and quantity, to the extent that we found ourselves packing some for home.

Adding to the charm of the place was the courteous and congenial staff. They were conversant in Mandarin and proficient in German. I also suspect they would have a fair grasp of English.

The restaurant's location is a little tucked away, but its cozy ambiance more than makes up for it. They even offer an outdoor dining area for those who prefer to eat al fresco.

In conclusion, this is a must-visit spot for anyone who appreciates a culinary exploration of vegetarian and vegan fare in a warm, welcoming setting.

Pros: ✨soo much Fooooooood✨, EVERYTHING VEGETARIAN/VEGAN , Lots of variety!!!

Cons: None...

Mock meat heaven

Firstly: The staff here is lovely. Secondly: The food is sooo incredibly good. We had the menu for 3 people which would have easily accommodated 4. Therefore we found the 60€ for it quite fair! Big indoor seating.

Best vegan Asian restaurant I've been to

The best vegan Asian restraunt I've been to. A lot of special vegan dishes, the service is great and prices are more than reasonable. I highly recommend the vegan shrimps, won ton dumplings, picant soup and cucumber garlic salad. If you are a vegan then it should be at your must visit places :)

Pros: Almost all the menu is vegan, The food is great and special

Best vegan Restaurant in Vienna

As someone from Vienna I have to say, that Xu’s is definitely the best and our favorite place for vegans. They have an incredibly large amount of vegan options with some of the best meat substitutes we’ve ever had and the only reason why they are not listed as a fully vegan restaurant is because of their egg fried rice and some desserts, otherwise everything you’ll find is vegan. They have an all you can eat buffet, but I would definitely recommend to eat something from the menu as they have more/ better options there.

The restaurant may not look that pretty, but if you are in Vienna and are in the mood for Asian vegan food you have to give Xu’s cooking a visit.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, All you can eat buffet, Very good meat substitute

Cons: Literally nothing

Ich war schon mehrmals hier. Die Bedienung ist immer nett, die Atmosphäre auch, und das rein vegetarische Menü mit überwiegend veganen Optionen wirklich lecker, auch für nicht-VeganerInnen :)

Pros: Fast nur vegane Gerichte, alles vegetarisch , Gastgarten , Freundliches Personal

Cons: Preise im mittleren Segment, lohnt sich aber

mixed feelings

I have known this restaurant for years and have been there several times. I don't like the buffet at all. I prefer the dishes on the menu. The tables are often dirty and so are the toilets.
