“Tickling the vegetarian taste buds”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Who said there are no options for vegetarians in Germany? Potatoes and cheese can take care of those minorities!
But thank goodness, here comes this uber cool restaurant "Red" to redeem those "neglected" vegetarians :-). I loved the concept of having a buffet of things and you can pay for the amount you eat instead of a fixed fee buffet which people like me can't do justice to.
The choices are many and quite inventive, I must say. You will like something or the other to suit your taste. Not spicy - which is alright considering it is a German restaurant, but flavorful - which is the way I like my food. Freshly prepared and beautifully presented. I myself got some ideas which I would like to try back home :-)..Place is packed usually, which can be taken as the measure of the quality and hence, popularity.
Definitely worth a visit - even for non-vegetarians who will be pleasantly surprised.

“Vegetarian for everyone”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This restaurant offers a good vegetarian buffet, an original choice of beverages, and some hot meals per day. I like it, especially when one can eat outside. I have to admit that I haven't fully understood the target of customers that it has, because it is slightly more expensive than I would expect for a business lunch, is far from tourist places, and in the week-end I don't fully like the buffet thing. However, the food is very good.

“Excellent food!!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

This is really good and healthy food. They have wide variety of vegetarian food and wasn't expensive at all. It's walkable distance from Town center.

We did reserve our table and as time went by, we noticed that the place was practically full. So it's advisable that you reserve a table. I am amazed to see an pure vegetarian restaurant in Germany!!

great healthy salads and a couple of treats with hot cheesey dishes and pastry too. wide selection, take as much or as little as you'd like. my german is very limited but looking at the food you can quickly work out what it is. good selection of drinks, alcohol too if you fancy it. didn't have dessert but cakes looked lovely.

“Fantastic Vegetarian”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

3 of us ate here for €35 and ate very well. Take a plate and select from the 20 odd cold dishes (such as pear and roasted leek, spinach and sun dried tomatoes, bulgar wheat salad, etc) and 8 hot dishes including ravioli in cheese sauce, polenta cakes with tomatoes, vegetables au gratin, etc). Then get plate weighed and pay for what you have taken. All dishes were fresh and delicious. Deserts and soup were also available but were not tried. Fantastic find for those after great veggie food.
