Every single dish was awful! All salads were disgusting, and the bread tasted awful too. The atmosphere was even worse. Unfriendly staff, who I think can't even smile. Probably the worst place I went to on my trip to Moscow. This place really made me hate anything to do with vegetarianism.

Very consistent, we've eaten here several times over the past month. Nothing special about the decor, but if you want good food and very reasonable prices this is for you . Also great selection of fresh squeezed juice combos!

My favorite part of the menu at Avocado were the raw food pages in the middle. I went for a combo of the Avocado Salad with Poppy Seeds and Nuts (absolutely delish!) and Pizza 4 Veg which was so-so (I can't eat peppers so they had to leave those off and the marinara sauce as well so that might have been what made it too bland). There were plenty of other great salads, raw dishes, warm vegetarian dishes, and juice options to choose from as well. This area of town is lovely too and the atmosphere around Christie Pond was really laid back and comfortable with quiet streets and the occasional tram going by. The outside terrace was perfect in summer weather. I'll definitely go back to try more from this diverse and healthy menu.

This was my first ever vegetarian restaurant, I legit wanted to try some food without meat, if that was possible?
Anyway, I did try the deep fried spinach balls with cream sauce, which were delicious, amybe I can become a full-time vegetarian one day! The fusilli pasta with sun-dried tomatoes and crushed walnuts was a bit dry, but it was quite edible! I highly recommedn tryin the sea buckthorn tea with fresh chilli. It's very healthy and delicious with honey.
I also loved Maxim, the waiter, who went out of his way to help me with my food selections!

Came here for lunch on a rainy day. I've been to plenty of vegetarian restaurants n this might be the first one I was disappointed with.

I had the business lunch. Maybe I just ordered the wrong meal. But the soup n entree were too oily. Wouldn't bother returning here.
