“Good food but poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

The food was good and there was a vast selection to choose from. The location is ideal, minutes from Brandenburg Gate, however the service was poor, the lady had very little understanding of English, and our attempts at German didn't seem to help with the ease of communication.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

A decent array of vegetarian food isn't easy to come by in Germany, even in Berlin, so to find this place not far from the Brandenburg Gate was a real bonus.

The food is superb, and the service (at midday) was very sharp. Really good cooking and decent value for money.

“Dissapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We visited this restaurant based on the good reviews here. Unfortunately we didn´t enjoy it that much. The service (only one lady on bussy Sunday noon) was terribly slow with no English. I enjoyed my dish (fried aubergines with peanut sauce) but my fiance was really dissapointed about the vegetable tempura. Considering also higher prices there we would not eat there again.

“very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

great food, giving them a 4 star because the ambiance is just not there. we had a very nice and decent Vegan meal, the dishes are explained nicely and the picture menu makes it a breeze for a foreigner to order food...

“Awesome food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The food was really delicious - we took the dish served in a banana leaf and the yellow curry,
The waiter was quick to attend and patient to our questions, and they went along with our request - tofu-free/vegan/etc.
The food arrived really fast and even the meat-lovers loved it and enjoyed.

It's a little expensive (10-15 euros for a dish), but its huge, and he packed it in a really good doggy bag - hard with all that sauce.
