Confusing system, large portions

On arrival at Gast you are given a little swipe card. Then you go to a food station, make your order and place a card on the scanner and the server puts the item on the card. When you leave they swipe your card and you pay the total bill. It doesn't make much sense- you don't get table service... read more

The pizza and ghe pasta are quite good and there is always some special offer based on the season. The... More

We have visited Gast many times over the years (think its been open about 10 years) and it always makes a change just to eat drink at your own pace and order food when you want, using your card which your given on entry, then pass over to order food, and pay on the way out Again last weekend we...

It was a fascinating restaurant, once you enter you are give a card, for each person that walks in, and then you fund a table and seat yourself on it.. there are no waiters/waitresses, and when you are ready to eat or get a drink, you just go inside, the foods is cooked right in front of your eyes, they...

The concept works great. You enter and are given a card that looks like a hotel key card. You choose your drinks and food from different stations,´. In a group, someone might have vegetarian curry, another pizza, and third member of your group mitt enjoy truffles-filled ravioli. Your card gets read at exit and you pay to the cashier.

Good food, italian/pizzas/asian etc. Lounge and restaurant with a modern/cool twist. You get a "creditcard" when you enter and use the card for any purchase inside, then pay as you leave. Always crowdy and noisy and friendly :-)

Great Pizze and Pasta dishes, freshly prepared as you watch. Self-service but definitely not cafeteria style! Reasonable prices for food and drinks. A mixed but mostly young crowd , many students from the Music Dept. of the University but also older concert goers from the Gasteig Symphony. It is lovely to see all those people enjoying the good food -... More

Gast is a very large modern, trendy place right next to a huge cultural centre so just perfect for a quick bite before a concert. It is all self service and you are given a plastic card that records your purchases and you pay on the way out. Food and drinks are ordered at various bars around the room and... More
