Loved it! Really nice food and athmosphere - Edit

I really really liked Yamm! I went with my boyfriend who is a meat eater and we both really enjoyed the food. There were lots of vegan options, delicious different kinds of food and also most of the cakes were vegan. We both had a big plate and even though it is a bit expensive, we both enjoyed it so much that is was totally worth it!

Pros: Delicious food, Very nice staff, Nice athmosphere

Cons: Price (but worth it!)

Nice and modern concept, but quite expensive - Edit

While I like Yamm's concept, I was a little disappointed with the small number of vegan options, and quite disappointed with the prices they charge.
Adding a few tidbits to your plate from every dish you want to sample quickly runs up a price of 10 EUR per plate. Definitely not a place to go if you are hungry!!!

Pros: Nice food

Cons: Expensive, Not very many vegan options

excellent brunch menue - Edit

Yes, it is a bit expensive. Therefore only 4 stars. But the vegan options at the brunch are excellent. All is very tasty. The vegan deserts are very good! The place is nice and big. The staff is helpful , good service. I would highly recommend this place also for Vegans.

Nothing special - Edit

This place is really big with inside and outside sitting. You can opt for self service or to order from the menu. In case you decide for self service, you are given a card to scan after you have weighed the food.
Vegan/vegetarian/gluten free options are clearly labelled.
There were more salad options than main dish options when I visited. The food is not bad, but really nothing special. You won't find here that "wow factor". So the price doesn't really justify what you get - I paid around 12 euros without dessert and drink included.

Pros: Good location, Nice decor, Self service

Cons: Expensive, Some staff members are not nice, Dessert and drinks are not self service

quality and it's price - Edit

The food there is absolutely delicious, I've been multiple times and they never fail to make my stomach very happy. Lots of exciting options.
The only thing is the price. A full, satisfying plate comes to at least 16€ and that's without any drinks.
At least the food always is of very high quality.

Pros: variety

Cons: high price

Vegan-friendly - Edit

I quickly learned in Vienna that if I wanted a good meal as a vegan, I should really find a vegetarian or vegan restaurant. The first restaurant I ate in was a disaster as I literally had bread and water whilst everybody else ate veal all around me. Needless to say, I was very happy to come across this place, which has a large buffet and wide selection of vegan friendly cakes. My omnivorous travelling companion was also happy with the choice on offer and could not belive my gateaux was vegan. Would return should I be in the area again.

Pros: Wide range of vegan options, Central location

Cons: A little on the pricey side

Vegetarian buffet - Edit

There were lots of choices and things marked as vegan. Quite pricey though my plate came to 18Euro and my partners was 22. The falafels are SUPER garlicky, I'm a big fan of garlic but this was major overkill!

Pros: variety

Cons: Price, Garlicky falafel

Great food and super friendly service - Edit

I really loved this restaurant and went there twice during my stay in Vienna. I think I had everything from the buffet that was vegan and gluten free. And they have quiet a few options. Also, great gluten free deserts.

Pros: many gluten free options

Not bad at all - Edit

We really enjoyed our meal here. Great open restaurant with good lighting for a relaxed conversation. Lots of options for vegans and I was careful not to overload the plate since one can suffer later. Buffet makes so much sense since it gives you control. The food was nicely spiced and we noted the different tastes. The local craft beer was excellent. The servers brought us the beer, coffee and dessert.

Pros: Good vegan food with lots of choice, Pleasant restaurant atmosphere , Helpful and attentive staff

Not amazing - Edit

It seemed to be trying to copy Hiltl in Switzerland with a pay-by-weight buffet (a bit overpriced), except the food wasn’t that great and the selection wasn’t as good. The desserts were nice, if a little dry and crumbly. All items were clearly labeled.

Pros: Clearly labeled vegan items

Cons: Limited selection, Overpriced, Bland food

Great for every occasion - Edit

Yamm is really nice because you can have a casual lunch but also may celebrate your birthday there as the interior is quite chic.
The food is really tasty and sometimes spicy and they have a lot of vegan options ranging from salads and hot main dishes to cakes and desserts.
Their smoothies are also really good. :-)
A negative aspect is that if you like huge portions it gets quite expensive. Also if you want to avoid oil completely it may not be the perfect spot for you.

Pros: amazing atmosphere , lots of vegan options, opposite the university of Vienna

Cons: can be expensive

Yamm still one of the best in Vienna! - Edit

The Yamm is still one of the best, even for vegans! But certainly it is not the cheapest veggie restaurant in Vienna. But for the provided high quality even recommended by Gault Millau!, stylish ambient and the city center location the price is OK! I visit the spacious Yamm - placed in front of the beautiful University of Vienna where I work, since the opening several years ago nearly once a week. And I could always choose from around 4 up to 7 tasty cooked vegan! main dishes. Additionally they always offer 5 or 7 very delicious clearly marked! Vegan cakes! I agree that Yamm has to mark clearly the vegan wines in the new wine list! But till now the waiter could recommend me two open white and open red which were vegan.

Pros: Stylish apacious place, Yamm in front of old University of Vienn, summer with nice garden in front of Yamm

Cons: vegan wine is not clearly marked

Disappointing for vegans, overpriced for all - Edit

I love buffets, so I had really high hopes for Yamm. Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed. Vegan dishes are well labelled, but they are mainly the salad and side dishes. My partner is vegetarian and he got to try pizza, tortellini, dumplings, lasagne and arancini, and any sides he wanted. The only "main" available to me was the gumbo - it was delicious, but I felt a bit cheated, and like I was overcharged for my plate of food.

Also, vegan wines are not marked on the menu. I was told that the only vegan wines were available by the bottle, not by the glass. However, they were also available in spritzer form. A very odd policy.

I was there for breakfast as well. The vegan option says it comes with 2 "vegan pastries". The pastries are bread buns. Not quite what I'd expected!

Cons: Vegan buffet options not up to standard, Misleading use of the word "pastry", Overpriced

partly yamm - Edit

Good location, nice decoration, lots of clearly marked vegan options. But: cantine style food with high street prices; slightly annoying staff (4 different people came to take our drinks order). Main criticism: everyone agreed the food was too salty - our mouths burned. A very full plate costs 28€. Good option if you have the budget and no other vegan option. Good place to chill.

Fantastic Food, Chic but Relaxed Atmosphere - Edit

This restaurant has an extensive self-service buffet where you pay by weight. There is a wonderful range of vegan and gluten-free options and a full bar. The servers are friendly and multi-lingual. It's in a great location on the Ring right across from the University of Vienna. Because it caters to students as well as the people who work in the government buildings nearby, the decor and atmosphere is upscale and edgy, but very comfortable, and we were definitely able to "come as we were" in terms of clothing. My husband and I both thought that the price for the food was extremely reasonable given the excellent quality. In short, this place is an absolute winner. (To give you an idea how much we liked the food: they have a cookbook that they sell to raise money for charity, and I bought it on the spot.)

A tip for rookies: The payment system is smart, but it takes a bit of getting used to. When you arrive, you're given a card, and then you go to the buffet, choose what you want, and bring your plate over to a scale to be weighed. The confusing bit is that you think you should somehow scan your card, but really you just need to press it flat against the upper left hand of the monitor. Then, when your plate has been weighed, be sure to press the green "Buchen" button on the screen. When you do, a receipt will print out and that's how you know your order went through. Bring the receipt and the card with you to your table, where a server will come and take your drinks order. It's a bit strange and it took me a couple of tries the first time, but it's very easy once you figure out how it works.

Pros: Delicious food, Lots of vegan and gluten-free options, Great atmosphere

Relaxed setting and food for everyone - Edit

We had been here on a previous visit (2011 I think) and managed to go again twice during a recent stay of just a few days so we must like it. On one occasion we had been to an opera and arrived just as they were closing the buffet but they were still welcoming.

If you have been to Tibits in London this place has a similar format, with a main-course buffet to which you help yourself, and then pay according to the weight of the plate (I think mine came to about 11 euros which seemed reasonable). They have a good variety of food on the buffet including two different asparagus dishes, hurrah. Not everything is vegan but most of it seems to be and it's clearly marked. Everything I had was fresh and delicious and it's mostly made from vegetables, lentils etc rather than fake meat (I did have one dish involving seitan but it was clearly marked).

They also have desserts, including amazingly light vegan torte things, which they sell by the piece (not on the buffet). One slice of cake seemed big enough for two but it depends how hungry you are, obviously.

Only quibble is that the system for payment seems slightly fiddly - get a card for your main course, scan it on the screen (not card-reader - another customer had to show me how), get a print-out then pay a server at the end (they add on the cost of drinks and desserts to what's on the print-out, I think). But it's more trouble for the staff than the customers.

Pros: Fresh, varied food, Plenty for vegans, Nice atmosphere and staff

Cons: Ordering and payment slightly complicate

Very good buffet - Edit

It's a great self service restaurant with waiters bringing you the drinks. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. You should try the soups, they are also great. And don't miss the Wasabi Hummus and the Mint Cucumber Salad. If you have ever been in a Tibits Restaurant somewhere in Europe - it's quite similar.

Modern buffet-style restaurant - Edit

This restaurant welcomes you in with a great modern atmosphere. Buffet style, you pay by every 100g of food you take, and the varriety and possibilities are great - although many of the vegan dishes are asian, which doesn't seem very creative. However, they offer great deserts, and a breakfast menu for vegans. The whole thing is quite expensive, considering it is located so close to the university, but at least they offer student discounts.

Pros: Great atmosphere., Good food, great deserts., Student discounts.

Cons: Expensive., Vegan options mostly asian.

You must eat at Yamm! - Edit

Fantastic fantastic fantastic vegan (and vegetarian) food! This is a by the kilo restaurant that is aesthetically pleasing and has delicious food. I had the glass noodles, wasabi hummus, and tortilla stuffed with sweet potato and bean. So savory. So far my spouse and I have eaten three meals in two days because we loved it so much. Not to be missed is the hazelnut chocolate torte. I love cakes and sweets and getting an amazing vegan torte is pure heaven. The prices are reasonable and if you eat there before 11:00 am the price is cheaper. The wait staff is friendly, helpful, and nice.

Pros: Delicious vegan desserts, Lovely decor, Fantastic food

Dangerous - Edit

A friend took us here recently and we were super excited about all the clearly labeled vegan options on the buffet. I didn't think we went overboard loading up our plates, so I was pretty shocked when we went up to pay and the plates were 20 euro each!! I couldn't get past that enough to really enjoy the food. In retrospect, it was pretty good, especially the soy meatloaf and falafel. But I just can't recommend it due to the price.

Pros: vegan options

Cons: expensive
