Description: In der Wiener City bietet das yamm! vegetarische Küche aus frischen, regionalen Zutaten, die ohne künstliche Zusatzstoffe zubereitet werden. Spätestens beim ersten Bissen wird man feststellen, dass man vegetarisch so noch nicht gegessen hat. Hier wird nicht bloß gekocht und Gemüse blanchiert, sondern kräftig gewürzt, gegrillt, gebacken und gratiniert. Ein internationales Buffet und ein raffinierter Mix aus frischen Kräutern und Gemüse der Saison laden zur kulinarischen Reise um die Welt ein. Ob Lunch, Abendessen oder gegen den Energie-Knick am Nachmittag zu einem hausgemachten Kuchen, das yamm!-Team überrascht immer wieder mit neuen Kreationen. Bedingungslose Frische, regionale und saisonale Waren haben für Küchenchef Walter Schulz oberste Priorität. Und das mit einem Maximum an Geschmack, denn: yamm! ist alles, außer langweilig!

“Wonderful vegetarian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

After a few days in Europe we were craving for some vegetarian food and Yamm proved to be a good choice. It's only vegetarian, it's a buffet and the food is paid for by weight. Nice salads, falafals, noodles, rice and spicy chutneys and sauces. Very friendly service and a great ambience, both indoors and outdoors. For those who are vegetarians by choice, this is the place.

“Selective, average veg dishes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Has mostly Lebanese veg dishes with one or two Thai/Chinese. Food was mostly bland and nothing too inviting. Maybe as Indian vegetarian we had different expectations.
Did expect few Indian or Italian dishes. Setup is good, food to be weight & purchased. Is certainly pricy. I still managed but my wife & child had to go to another restrau for survival!

“Like an up-market Tibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

For those who know London vegetarian restaurants, the set-up is like Tibits in Heddon St, in that you take a plate and help yourself to portions from numerous vegetarian or vegan dishes, then take your plate to be weighed. The food is priced according to weight. It's a bit different in that drinks and sweets are served at the table, and it's a bit more expensive (and has a more up-market feel) than Tibits, but worth every Euro. Unfortunately we discovered Yamm on our penultimate day in Vienna, but next time we visit we'll certainly go again.

“I'd eat here everyday if I could!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I'm always very jealous of people who talk about sampling the 'local cuisine' when they go abroad, knowing that as a vegetarian it can be hard to fully rely on restaurants in parts of Europe fully grasping the concept. So what an absolute joy to discover Yamm! I have no idea what I ate here - but I know that everything tasted delicious, and I had no fears that it contained hidden meat or fish.

But not only is the food fantastic, but the set-up here is great fun. You are handed a card on arrival (like a credit card) which you take to the buffet area. Here you choose a large or small plate or bowl, and load it up with everything that looks good (all of it - a great selection of hot and cold food). You then take your plate to the weighing machine, using your card, and it prints out a slip telling you how much you've spent (in our case, 9 euros and 11 euros for my husband and I, for nicely full plates).

The self-service aspect ends there, and the waiting staff bring your drinks and desserts (again, a fantastic selection of deserts, cakes etc - all delicious). The staff very all very friendly and helpful (and all spoke English), the food was wonderful, and not over-priced. We had a decent sized plate of food each, a lovely dessert each and a really nice coffee each, plus a large bottle of mineral water to share, and it came to about 35 Euros.

We had dinner here on the Friday night - and it was so good, we went back for lunch the next day. A real vegetarian delight.

I wish there was a Yamm everywhere!

“Excellent Vegan food, bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

If you enjoy vegan food this is a place worth trying. The buffet has a wide variety of tasty morsels, and you can you pick and mix, go to the scale and pay (putting it first on a card and later through the waitress) for the weight of what you have selected. Pretty nifty system. The food ain't exactly what I would call cheap but it was very good and certainly worth trying. Good service too.
