I have visited Vapiano in Braunschweig several times, and have always enjoyed eating here. I think the apparent transparency of how the Vapiano franchise prepares meals makes the guests trust the food more. Staff are always friendly, and the atmosphere is cosy and welcoming. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a tasty meal out!

Although my German friends tend to love this place, I find it mediocre, loud and crowded. It's a chain restaurant with food cooked for you on the spot. Reminds me of the pasta bar at university...

If you're up for serving yourself and wading through people to get a table, then go. The food is good and decently priced, I just don't get the fascination with having to serve yourself especially when the ambience is loud and raucous.

It is a self service restaurant on the opposite of Schloss Arkaden. The food is not bad. But if you intend to have pasta and pizza at the same order, better order the pasta first and then the pizza. Pasta is made in front of you and it takes much more time compared to the pizza, especially if there is... More

Usually crowded, but the with such an unprepared staff it is normal that they can't serve such a big number of people...my cook prepared my small MISTA PICCOLA with chicken breast ( 3 really small pieces for 2-3 € I don't remember exactly) for exactly 15 minutes which is the same time as I prepare it at home. of course...

It is not possible to eat together when you are with a large group. Ingredients for pasta sauces are reduced, e. g. No more dried tomatoes.

Similar to other Vapiano's -except a little more crowded as it's right in the city centre. Fresh, cooked while you wait, low prices. if you haven't tried - DO!

Very nice pasta, pizza, and salad in comfortable and pleasant surroundings. Quirky idea of queuing individually for food and it being cooked to order in front of you as you wait, but it works and the food is piping hot and cooked perfectly. The only downside from multiple visits was an astonishingly rude and grumpy bar man yesterday, probably the... More

I knew this franchise from home already. Serves good quality italian food on reasonable price and you can get it done fast, but you can sit for a while. Trendy bar upsters, young trendy people around.
