We came here one night of our stay and loved it so much that we reserved a table for the next night before we had even finished our meal. Everything we tried was perfect. Kong allowed us to try authentic Portuguese dishes which we weren't...sure we would be able to do. The ingredients were fresh and perfectly combined. The staff were super friendly and seemed genuinely happy to be there. This is a must visit for anyone coming to Lisbon, I cannot recommend it enough!More

Not only was the food absolutely delicious, the atmosphere was great and the service was super welcoming. I went with a friend and we had starters and a meal each with some awesome drinks. There are some very impressive desserts and I need to try...them next time... Definitely coming back and if you're wondering if you should go, this is the green light!More

PORTUGUESE MEALS BUT VEGAN!!!! We were so lucky to find this gem of a restaurant. It was so much more than we expected, and it was outstanding. The waitress was so smiley, so helpful and positive and the food came quickly, and sooo delicious. My...boyfriend loves the look of Portuguese traditional food and loved the opportunity to try it but vegan. Our favourite were the croquettes- I actually had to double take and check they were vegan, it was so realistic. Amazing amazing place. Hopefully this stays open for a long long time and gets the credit it deserves 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼More

This amazing vegan restaurant has been a pleasant surprise during our trip to Lisbon. The food was very tasty, and the waiter was friendly and helpful. If you are in Lisbon, I suggest you give this place a chance. You won’t be disappointed.

WOW! We visited here in June 2022 and ordered about 7 dishes between us. Highly recommend the Francesinha, the mock meat & cheese were unbelievablly delicious! The sauce was amazing too we loved every mouthful! The croquettes and Aubergine dishes are fantastic but every dish...we ordered was spectacular. We loved it so much we came back the following night, and ordered a couple more dishes. I also contacted them to ask if they would cater for my wedding as the food was so good! Unfortunately external catering is not something that they provide. 10/10 the service was fantastic with really friendly waiting staff too. Just love it and we'll be back if we ever come back to Lisbon again. Thank you for some of the tastiest vegan food experiences of my life! 😍🌱More

We absolutely loved Kong! We shared a bunch of the starters the first time followed by Nutella Cake and Oreo Moose - all of which were wonderful! Highly recommend, and will be back next time we're in Lisbon! Staff were amazing and it was so...wonderful (as one veggie and one dairy allergy suffer) to know we could eat absolutely everything on the menu! Really great to get to try some vegan versions of traditional Portuguese food!More

Nice visit on a hot day. Had the King Burger which was tasty, and for dessert we had a wonderful snickers cake to share. We really wanted to try the cheesecake and nutella cake as well but were too full. I would recommend a visit...simply to try the desserts! Staff was nice and we enjoyed our visit! We planned to go back for another visit but the restaurant was closed on sundays.More

An absolute must for vegans in Lisbon. The menu is predominantly classic Portuguese dishes made vegan, served in a fab chilled place by friendly, passionate staff. We shared the croquettes, bruschetta, a side salad and the francesinha, plus a beer each, all for £28 including...service. And we were stuffed! It was so great to be able to enjoy totally vegan versions of Portuguese classics, we went on a Thursday lunchtime and it was busy, but not full. Super highly recommended for vegans and non-vegans alike :)More

The staff were friendly and lovely. The food was absolutely BEAUT. I am so happy we got to eat here. We didn't book but it is small so I imagine it does fill up quick. We had the stuffed mushroom, croquettes, fish & Chips, Francesinha....And the desserts are not to be missed. We tried to the salted caramel pie & the snickers pie. We ended up ordering an extra snickers to take back to the hotel it was that good! Brilliant vegan food!!More

Just can’t recommend this little gem enough. Lovely staff and the best food in the heart of Lisbon. Found via The Happy Cow App. Had the crunchiest cauliflower wings and croquettes followed by a very tasty Beyond Burger Thank you x
