Excellent, tasty, savoury, and just spicy enough.

Luntmakagatan seemed like a good street for finding some Asian food. But discovering this little gem, we were lucky to have caught a nice table!

So I'm not a vegetarian, but I went here with my vegetarian boyfriend and his friend whilst in Stockholm. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food tasted. Normally I don't really like vegetarian food because it always tries to be meat but fails miserably. However, the starters, mains and desserts we had were... More

I have been coming to Lao Wai for 20 years and have never once had a bad meal. Always excellent. The ingredients are fresh and organic. Dishes are served hot off the grill one at time so your whole table can share. Can be a bit loud because of the acoustics.

One one selected for lunch which makes it very pleasant and brings you to taste something new based of the chefs best choice. 100 SEK for lunch and the high quality of the food and relaxed atmosphere makes the place a winner in my mind.

My friend recommended this restaurant located on a side street from Sveavagen street, The restaurant is very small and can seat probably less than 20. But the food was excellent, much better than the buffet ones found in central Stockholm.

Fresh food, only plantbased ingredients. Comes in large portions. Don't forget to try the ice cream! I chose one based on coconut milk and it was delicious!

For sure this is the best vegetarian restaurant in Stockholm. More expensive than other places and you'll have to book a table in advance but still worth the visit. Super tasty vegan food, highly recommended. They have lunch menu also that is cheaper.

This little Asian vegetarian (actually vegan) is the best, not only the best veggie place but best restaurant in stockholm! :-) (And trust me I've been there like 50 times..) It's a must try for any foodie looking for Asian, veggie or "regular" food. It's healthy, super tasty, flavorful and delicious. The restaurant has a lunch menu with a daily... More

Staying in Vasastan

Neighborhood Profile
Vasastan
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
