Freshly prepared and fried, with humus, salad and little more. With 20 liras you can buy a menu. Few tables outside and inside. A great veggie choice, near Taksim square.

Excellent food, huge servings, very cheap. Simply great. The hummus was divine, the falafels soft and tasty, and the tabouli was the best I have had.

Delicious, well priced and decent service. Best Falafel we had in Istanbul! We opted to sit on the patio and it was fabulous

We got basically all the vegetarian options on the menu. The food was good but the service was confusing the point that they lost a star.

This small but very good restaurant is just located in the heart of Taksim hotels zone.With very extensive menu,this eatery is always crowded with its international customers.Quality and quantity of the food served here is very satisfactory.Price level is also very convenient for this kind of quality food in such a populated&famous touristic center.Highly recommended.

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.
