“Fantastic Birthday Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

It's taken my 3rd visit to Berlin to finally make it to the Lucky Leek - it was so worth the wait! My husband booked a table for us for my birthday trip to Berlin, and it could not have been better. Being Boxing Day we had a set Christmas menu where we opted to have 4 courses ( you could have 3-5), each course being accompanied by a selected wine. I thoroughly enjoyed each course & we were also treated to some canapés. I tend to be more of a savoury person & loved the beetroot tartar, winter veg consommé & spinach & seitan main, but have to say the pumpkin ice cream was an absolute winner!
The staff were also great, couldn't have been more helpful to us non-German speakers. I even bought the cookbook! Can't wait to go back.

“The greatest meal I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a four course vegan treat on Boxing Day, each which was accompanied by a perfectly matched glass of wine. Outstanding food, drink, service and overall atmosphere. I could not recommend this place highly enough. No future trip to this wonderful city will be complete without dinner at the Lucky Leek. Vegan heaven!

“Top quality vegetarian food at Lucky Leek in a great part of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We chose to dine at Lucky Leek based on great reviews and we were not disappointed.

We didn't take the advice to book but arriving when they opened at 6pm secured us a table, but there were queues for tables by 7pm! The location is great - close to public transport and in what appeared to be a delightful part of the city. The ambience is classy without being stuffy, with service to match. The five course degustation type menu was a fine display of inventive vegan food at a good price considering the obvious care and high quality ingredients that go into creating it.

We would definitely eat at Lucky Leek again - great food, good surroundings and service, and pretty good value for the quality of food.

Top tip: make sure you book if you don't want to miss out!

“Vegan haven but not overly inspiring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our creative and beautifully presented five-course meal at Lucky Leek, however for the price I have had much, much better high-end vegan cuisine elsewhere in Germany and France and left satisfied but not hugely inspired. Being vegetarian rather than vegan it wasn't quite the 'OMG OMG A HIGH-END VEGAN RESTAURANT WOW THIS IS AMAZING!?!?!' experience for us that most customers would have, but still enjoyable. The five-course meal is very filling so go on an empty stomach, and be sure you book ahead!
