After reading comments from others in Tripadvisor, I went for late lunch on 30th March 2014. I took Kim Chi as starter (€3.50), Hanoi Mien Ga soup (€9.90) and Bio Heffe Weisse - bio white beer (€3). The kimchi was OK, fresh and spicy. I would prefer more fermented kimchi. However, it was good. The Hanoi soup was much better... More

I ate here once during the week, together with 3 colleagues, one of them being a vegan and wanting to experience vegan food. Just on a side note, I am far from being vegan but I do love to eat lots of vegetables. When we entered the restaurant in the early evening it was pretty empty. We were seated and... More

On a recent trip to Cologne my wife suggested a visit to this restaurant, which was literally only two minutes from our hotel, the Barcelo. Although I am a pescatarian the prospect of eating in a full vegetarian restaurant appealed much more to me that trying to avoid hidden meat products in other local restaurants; ingredients get confused in translation!...

The menu - rice, noodles, vegetables, tofu, soy meat. It's good. Bright interior, good service. There is a menu of the day.

All asian inspired dishes, so be in the mood for chopped veggies on rice or noodles, with curry or other spicy sauce. Your choice of tofu, veggie-chicken or veggie-meat. Reasonably priced for good sized portions. I enjoyed the wanton soup, having never found a veggie version before.

I am a confirmed carnivore but found myself in the company of a lifelong and fanatical veggie, so - as ever - I backed down and went to the restaurant that suited him, not me. What a pleasant surprise! I thought that the restaurant was brilliant and the food choices were so good that you didn't miss meat at all.... More

Well Being serves 100% vegan Asian food. I know "vegan" may not sound very exciting to non veggies, but their food was very flavorful and a little spicy. They had a lunch menu for 6.50 euros, and my husband and I ended up getting the same dish, mine with tofu and his with the vegan beef. The food was very... More

The spring rolls are very good but my main course (the well-being special) , though substantial, was bland and it would be difficult to finish it unless one is very hungry. Reasonably relaxing ambiance. Not great service or price but not bad either.

Being two travelling veggies we were happy to find a veggie restaurant quite close to the centre of Cologne. On arrival the place smelt lovely of various veggie aromas and we ordered feeling confident that our meals would be delicious. We watched as food was served to all the other tables around us...we then noticed that those other tables (including... More

So I was craving something beyond the meats of Germany. Having been Vegetarian and Vegan at different times in my life, I was curious what a Vegan/Veggie restaurant was like in Cologne. I believe this is the ONLY true Vegan/Vegetarian haven in Cologne outside of Bio grocery stores and food marts. What a FIND! Food is excellent. No, it isn't... More
