This place is on the side street of Taksim. A very small place. But the food served is excellent. A great place for vegetarians as veg falafel is available. The humus n pita was also very good. In our 3 night stay we visited this place twice.

Ate here twice during my week in Istanbul. Great option for vegetarians. Think my fav. menu option is the meal #1 - falafel, hummus, and veggies served with pita bread. Various fresh juices are on offer too. Location is a bit tricky to find - it's a block north of Taksim square, on a pedestrian-only street. Sit outside if you... More

During my stay in Istanbul I was on the search for the best hummus and falafel and read that this is one of the places to try. Needless to say, I went there three times and enjoyed every bite. Fresh, tasty, large portions and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend checking this place out when you're in Istanbul to grab... More

All the positive comments on Trib about this place we found to be true, tasty, fresh food, reasonably priced. About the comments on the staff being lazy, and not giving great service, perhaps that was in the heat of the earlier part of the summer, as we found them perfectly pleasant, though they did get our drinks order wrong.

Fresh and very tasty food, generous portions at a decent price. What else can you ask for? The place is not very cosy, but it's great if you're hungry and looking for a change from the countless doener and kebab places! Good choice for vegetarians, also.

We have been going to this place for the last three days. Everytime the staff looks at us like they have never seen us before. most staff was sleepy and lazy. Food is decent why we went there three times. One of the chief staff dropped our drink on the table and refused to give a new one. Really unenthusiastic... More

When I was Istanbul I was traveling with a vegetarian and we stumbled across this place. It is cheap, the staff is friendly, and most importantly, the food is great. If you're vegetarian and in Istanbul, this place is definitely worth visiting. We liked the place so much that we came back twice in the 3 days we were staying... More

Nicely cooked falafel with lots of salad and good fresh juices. One of the only good vegetarian places in Istanbul.

Located down a little street off the back of Taksim Square, it doesn't look much from the outside but the food is top notch. My girlfriend and I both had the falafel, hummus and salad with flat breads. All delicious, particularly the hummus. Everything is clearly so fresh. The fresh orange juice was also great! Service was quick and attentive.... More
