Reasonably good pasta.
Avoid the pizza and the antipasti.

Be aware that you will have to queue a lot, try to find a table and evntually eat in a noisy atmosphere (teenagers, families).

Certainly popular amoung young people. Attracting a lot because it has recently opened. But nothing so special.

This is a wonderful place to enjoy some really tasty food! Very nice atmosphere and a new way of being served in a self-serviced restaurant.
I would definately eat here again!

We went to this restaurant in the afternoon of a Saturday. The premises are very beautiful, very modern. The food look very clean and fresh.
Plus:
-Location
-Food appearance
-Price
-Taste
-Friendly service, quick and efficient

Mins:
The only thing I disliked is the efficiency of the menu. It's like a fast-food restaurant, so you feel a kind of pressure to make your choice quickly. I found the menu a bit unclear, how to choose your food, combine ingredients, about the size, quantity, price. However, there were enough staff to help out and provide information, I didn't require them to help me.
I will definitely return to this restaurant as the food was very good.

Me and my girlfriend went to Vapiano Aachen in april, and the food was great. It's self service, but everything is fresh made before yor eyes. The price start at almost 7 euro to about 13 euro for a dish. If you want good food for a small price this is your restaurant.

When you go in every customer gets a "creditcard", and the things you eat and drink will be put on that card. At the exit you give the card to to cashier and she will tell you the amount you have to pay, great system!

Every big city has to have a Vapiano.

Vapiano brings a new way of dining to Aachen (whereby the chain is already in many large cities across Europe). Each person who enters receives a 'Vapiano Credit Card'. Everything you order will be placed on this 'credit card'. When leaving the restaurant everybody (no exceptions) has to hand their card back in. The card will be read and you will be presented with your bill. Cash and Euro Cards are accepted for payment.

There are 4 main food choices: salad, pasta, pizza and deserts. Everything is very fresh. The pasta itself is made onsite (depending on the time of day you can even watch them make the various types of pasta).

There is no waiter service. Depending on what you what to eat you line-up at that section on the food counter. Note, it is not a buffet. Once it is your turn you place your order and everything will be made fresh for you. Salads and pasta are made while you wait. For the pizza's you will be given a buzzer. It rings as soon as your pizza is ready. You then go back to the pizza counter and pick it up.

The restaurant has plenty of seating. Seating is broken-up into 4 main sections. Standard tables and chairs; high dining tables / chairs; outside seating and a cafe area. You are free to grab a seat anywhere there is space. Fresh herbs and spices are available on all tables. The restaurant has its own little greenhouse. You are also free to walk into the small greenhouse area and grab a pot with the fresh herbs that you would like (in case it is not on your table).

The cafe area is more of a lounge area. You can also eat in this area if you like. It is not reserved for drinks only. In winter they have a gas fireplace in the middle of the room. Very comfortable.

Deserts are typically European: tiramisu, custard puddings, ... they also have a mean Death by Chocolate.

Vapiano offers a full bar. Soft drinks are also available.

Whether you are hungry and after lunch or dinner, or just interested in a glass of wine in the lounge area, I can highly recommend Vapiano.
