Vapiano Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Vapiano restaurant:
 
1) Disasters often happen with a mere wrong swipe to the right and the next thing you know, you've ended up on a nightmarish date with a girl of your not-so-perfect dreams. Never fear, because Vapiano is here.

2) You don't want to do the gentlemanly thing and foot the whole bill for a one-off date. Vaps has the perfect solution. They provide individual charge cards, which you utilise at individual food counters.

3) Polite chatter can be kept to a minimum: you send her off foraging whilst you manfully keep a watchful eye on the belongings and then swap duties when she gets back.

4) Even if the conversation isn't copious, the food portions are. The fresh tasting beef carpaccio looks sufficient in quantity to cover most of Lady Gaga's petite figure. Savour the rawness slowly to minimise unwanted banter; remember it's rude to eat and talk simultaneously.

5) You are not interested in her life story, nor the travails of her pet dog, Tinkerbells. At least you can divert the conversation to talk about the food. Marvel at their endless combinations of pasta: 11 types, 2 kinds of spelt pasta, 25 toppings/sauces plus daily specials. If I was Stephen Hawking, I’d compute the number of possible outcomes, but I’m not.

6) I wouldn't generally advise takeaway on a first date, but I’d suffered from eye hunger when I ordered extra veal on my pasta vitello and even though the caper sauce was aiding my digestion, the drastic takeaway action was needed. Fortunately, they have the most sturdy plastic container ever; it wouldn't look out of place in the Selfridges kitchenware department.

7) Desserts will assist your decision about whether she's the right girl for you. They handily have small and regular sized portions.

8) Drinks-wise, opt for the easy-to-dispose-of choices so that once the conversation runs dry, you can make your quick escape: so the strawberry bellini rather than the pint of Peroni.

9) Plan the date to end just before Top Shop closing time: "I hear the final sales are on. You really shouldn't miss out."

10) For those who feel unfed (unlikely) or unloved (more likely), they even have a bowl of complimentary gummy bears when you leave. How thoughtful of Vaps!

The following customer reviews are not endorsed by Fluid London and are simply those of users who wish to publish their independent experiences of Vapiano.

“I only stopped by for a quick drink - Arizona Peach Ice Tea, a perfect choice for a hot summer's day in London. I'm definitely going back for a lunch. The card system is intriguing and the whole concept of a rapidly-served dining experience in an ultra-urban looking establishment is something I've got to experience. I have my eye on the Pesto Pasta followed by the Crema di Fragola and washed down with an Arizona Green Tea.”

“Me and my friends went here for a quick bite before we went out and ended up staying longer than we thought! The food here was great and the drink selection, and with really good prices we stayed longer and got more for our money! What I also found impressive was that the food was cooked fresh "In front of you"! You know exactly what you're getting here. I recommend the Carbonara!”
