Stopped by for lunch this Weekend and was very pleased. The waitresses were very pleasant and knowledgeable. All the entrees are 10-11 euros. The food was very eye appealing, and tasty with exotic spice. Highly recommend for someone seeking a healthy and nutritious meal.

We both had the hotpot special. It came with 2 delicious side salads and rice, all vegan. It's a nice cafe and the staff were friendly. There are some outdoor seats too.
