Enjoyed having lunch here. Very good selection of salads as well as warm vegetarian dishes. Desserts are also delicious.

Once again, another excellent buffet selection of vegetarian/vegan meals. We always visit here when in Stuttgart. The variety of meal options (hot or cold) are the major attraction of this restaurant. Every city should have have an Iden restaurant. Thank you for the lovely food. Graham & Margaret

After spending a week in Germany eating a lot of meat and fish, we were ready for a lighter, more healthful meal. We spent 4 days in Stuttgart and ate at IDEN 3 times! And we never got to any of the hot food. The salad dressings were excellent; salad choices included fresh beets, celery root, asparagus. Plus they use... More

I Stayed in Stuttgart for two weeks. Very nice and clean city. But never go to the Iden self-service restaurant. The food had a bad smell to it. No Vegan option. The staff were very rude. No atmosphere a very depressing place. Avoid it.

If you enjoy mixing your vegetables as much as I do this is the place to be: impressive choice of fresh veggies, ranging from simple as-is (just sliced) to various salad mixes with dressings. Any veggie-lover will find something for their taste. Dressings are available (olive and seeds oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and more complex mayonnaise-based ones). All items... More

When you first walk into the restaurant, you think that you've entered a nursing home. The decor and the clientele provide for a rather drab atmosphere. I wouldn't come here for a hot, romantic date. Lol. It's self service, which is fine, but it is fairly unclear how to go about everything when you walk in. Overall, by the time... More

We came here for lunch during the week. The place was quite full with people and it was a little bit noisy. We were looking for vegan options but unfortunately there was lot's of dairy products or honey in the salads' dressings. We managed to have a plate with mixed raw salads and came out with more than 12€ each,... More

Ate here this evening with colleagues. The format is a vegetarian buffet, with salads, desserts, soups, drinks, and various entrees and sides. The selection is diverse and tasty. I had a yam tart, a mushroom and tofu stroganoff, a cornmeal cake, rice steak, fresh spinach, and brown rice with curry. Made me wish that there were more veggie restaurants back... More
