Very crowded and buzy. We were seated quite fast, but had to wait for our personal "shopping" card. Which by the way very easy and smart if U are several people in the group. You have to stand in line to order your food and then wait for it to get cooked. It's not a personal and cozy place because... More

Positives: quick service (considering how busy they were) and a good system for ordering. Great pizza, and I mean great, one of the best I've ever had Negatives: ridiculously busy meaning getting a table can be a time consuming, tough task. The guy cooking my pizza was a bit rude and obnoxious

Busy and touristy but as a lone female felt comfortable having dinner here. Easy payment system but queues can be long. Serves alcohol unlike the Dubai one.

If one is to believe Vapiano's website, you're up for a cosy laid-back meal, no hassles, just enjoying great food... Well, tough luck, because there is nothing laid-back about it, you're a given some sort of a 'food credit card' and then you're treated to an endless wait that reminds you more of MacDonalds on a busy day or Moscow...

Located on Potsdam Platz this is part of a worldwide chain. An open kitchen system operates and you are given a card when you walk in and basically every time you order it is added to this card which you present at the end for payment. Good value and quick, no having to wait for service, I went for pizza... More

Thanks Berlin for introducing me to Vapiano, it is now my no.1 favourite restaurant and I am thrilled that there are branches in London. I will definitely be visiting soon. The way that it works (watch your food be cooked) is really good and a quicker way of being served. The card system is also great as you know how... More

We've been 4 days in Berlin and ate 3 times at VaPiano! That's a really great place, first you walk in you get a magnetic card and then you've got like stations where you choose your dish. For example you go to the Pasta, you chose the sauce and the shape of pasta you would like (Ravioli , Spagetti, Penne,... More
