This restaurant features itself as the only vegan restaurant in Munich.
The design is modern, not extremely comfortable seating but this is the least of its problems.
I came at lunch time. There were a few soups on the menu, and a curry dish with vegetables and chickpeas and brown rice. I didn't want soup so ordered the curry dish, hoping to get a pile of rice and vegetables. A huge bowl of soup came, with a few balls of chickpeas and 3-4 sweet potatoes cubes floating around. It was mostly water, that is, a soup! The small bowl of rice as a side dish was ok, but just plain rice.
This was one of the Tagesmenu dishes, that is dish of the day. Despite this, I had to wait 45 (!) minutes for it to come, even though the restaurant was half empty when I arrived.
It is not a place for a quick lunch, neither is it a nice place to sit for a long time and enjoy a gourmet meal. It is over-priced (I paid €16 for this dish and a cup of tea), the food is not that great, the selection is small and the service is extremely slow. I didn't wait for the bill, just got up and paid at the cashier as had to go back to work, after over an hour.
If you like this kind of food, a far better place is Grenzstein in Elisabethmarkt, Schwabing. Good food, self-service and half the price.

I was delighted to find a vegan oasis in Munich during my visit there. Aptly named, this restaurant was cozy, fun, and provided delicious vegan options. We enjoyed a couple of raw appetizers (hummus and guacamole), and then enjoyed a warm quinoa dish as our main course. The staff were pleasant and friendly, and it was a fantastic dining experience overall. I highly recommend this establishment!

So happy that this beautiful little restuarant has come to Munich.

Having lived previously in London, Sydney and New York, I was always a fan of raw food but I didn't hold much hope for a raw food place to open in Munich.

But not only is it here, but it is one of the best raw food restaurants I have ever been to, anywhere in the world.

The ingredients are sourced from trustworthy, organic sources and the food is clearly made with a whole lot of love and care.

My husband (a real meat loving Bavarain boy) was absolutely amazed by how much he loved the food! In fact he often asks if we can go here for dinner now instead if cooking at home!

The raw cakes are the best I ever had, and everyone I know agrees that these raw cakes are more delicious than any cake in Munich.

I actually ate here for one week afte it opened and my skin looked about five years younger and I lost 2 Kilos!

And no the restaurant is not paying me to write this, nor do I have any loyalty to the owners.

I am just so thankful and feel so blessed to finally have a place in Munich that makes delicious food that it also ethical, bio and made with love.

The staff are just darlings.....dont get me wrong they can be slow but its all part of the vibe here! They are just the loveliest people.

Only one fault! Dreadful coffee! I dont drink coffee but my poor husband complains every time we visit about not getting a good coffee!

Please go, you will not regret opening your mind to raw food after you eat here :)
