A light lunch or a summery supper

Fancy a light lunch or a summery supper? SaLa is a family-run Vietnamese vegetarian restaurant at 62, Leibnizstrasse, moments from the Ku’damm in Charlottenburg. It opened last summer and has quickly established a loyal and regular clientele. Hardly surprising, as the wide selection of dishes are all so reasonably priced and the service is friendly and helpful.


We started with summer rolls and moved on to various main courses, so we could do some tasting. Everything was all freshly-cooked, and enhanced with a variety of eastern spices and herbs. The delicate flavours came through naturally – no monosodium glutamate used here.  Drinks include shakes made with vegan milk and restorative ginger tea.

The surroundings are light and airy, with fresh flowers on the tables and an Asian ambience. You can eat outside as well, if it’s not too hot. SaLa is open daily, from 11.30am to 11pm on weekdays and from 1pm to 10pm at weekends. It’s ideal for a healthy, low carb lunch or early supper and is light on the purse too (average main dishes €8). Nearest station is Savignyplatz, but it’s easily walkable from Zoo.
