A short story of Chay Long

We make make you happy with our food! This motto of our Chay Long team brings out all the important aspects that belong to the history of the restaurant. As a Buddhist who has been practicing for years, the Buddhist principles are deeply rooted within me, Hien Dinh-Graf, founder and director of Chay Long.

The search for happiness

is our constant endeavor and such an individual's happiness cannot last when his surroundings and those around him suffer from his behavior. The creation of bad kharma prevents us from attaining the state of happiness.

The consumption of meat and the associated killing of animals produces bad Kharma. Thus, according to Buddhist opinion, the renunciation and the consumption of meat and thus the killing of animals is one of the basic prerequisites for the attainment of human happiness. For centuries, Buddhist monastery kitchens have cultivated the art of preparing meatless dishes. In the course of time this art was perfected. We have dedicated ourselves to this tradition and combine traditional monastery cuisine with elements of modern cuisine.

Every year we travel several times to Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam to meditate together with nuns and monks in the temples of our Buddhist community. This was also the case in 2016 when we visited the temple complex near Phnom Phenh in August. On the day of our arrival, the monastic community in Phnom Phenh opened a vegetarian restaurant. The community sees it as its task not only to feed itself without meat but also to help other people to renounce the consumption of meat, to convince people that the renunciation of meat is not a lack, but on the contrary, an increase in enjoyment. Thus one helps one’s fellow men on their way to happiness, not by prohibitions, but by pointing out alternatives.

Inspired by this idea and supported by the monastic community in Phnom Phenh, we opened our restaurant - Chay Long - in May 2017. Chay means “meatless for life”; in Vietnamese, Long is the Chinese word for dragon. Transferred the name means that meatless nutrition gives the strength to be a dragon.

We are happy about the regular exchange with our partner restaurants in Chang Mai, Thailand, Phnom Phenh, Cambodia, Vientiane, Lao and Ha Noi, Vietnam.

Our food comes from the heart, we prepare it out of our love for life and the desire to make you happy.

We look forward to your vist.

Hien Dinh-Graf and the Team of Chay Long

But everything we bought here was well balanced & perfectly seasoned! It was an absolute treat!! Will definitely be going here regularly!read more

Delicious vegan Southeast Asian food!In Berlin it's easy to have a high bar for Southeast Asian and vegan food. And... this is my favorite place!You can come here for appetizers (tapas style), have full meal with mains, is just have a drink and dessert. Their menu rotates slowly, so that you won't get bored. And the staff is very nice.I'm definitely a regular there.read more

A very cute little restaurant in a quiet neighborhood with nice outdoor seating. Now to the food: let me tell you it... was amazing! I had the vegan "duck" in peanut sauce with rice which was really juicy and flavorful. The prices are really good, rather on the cheaper side. Just to complete the photos: the starters were also very very nice and the "blue" tea was really refreshing in this sticky weather.So long story short: if you have the time and happen to be in Berlin, this restaurant is a must try!read more
