Great food and service. We had seitan gyros with fries and the food was excellent. Highly appreciated even by my non-vegan boyfriend.

Our latest visit was almost as good as the previous times. The food being excellent, but service was slow and unorganised. We had to wait and order several times, because there was a constant miscommunication between the staff. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our meal and look...forward to returning in the future.More

Well…almost everything is deep fried, , and not fresh. Our “fresh” soup has arrived within 2 min. Not tasty, nothing special. I don’t recommended this place.

Good food with great service. We’be been there during a tassel period with friends. Normally we are not vegan so had some prejudice but the restaurant proven the opposite. We’ve had really good food with very nice service.

At this restaurant, everything is always perfect: the food, the staff, the atmosphere and the prices. I was here several times with my partner and friends and will come back in the future for sure. If there would be a way to have an open...terrace or roof-top area, that would be amazing!More

We don‘t normally eat 3 courses when we go out, but everything on this menu sounded delicious ! And it was! We really liked the fact that they create vegan versions of traditional Hungarian meals so that we could also experience the local cuisine without...the meat :) Everything was exzellent, looked beautiful, and great portions - without breaking the bank. I can‘t wait to go back! Oh and the service was lovely as well. Everything was just great!More

I was in Budapest for a few days and ate here on 3 separate occasions. After the 1st visit I was hooked! On the 1st visit I had the Gyros Platter with a Strawberry Lemonade and for desert I had a cake. The spicy roasted...seitan strips were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The pita bread was baked to perfection and the tzatziki sauce was lovely! Really nice dish. The Strawberry Lemonade had mint leaves, chunks of strawberries and lemon wedges. After a hot day it was just what I was looking for and the flavour was right on! The cake I had (can't remember what it was called) was the perfect end to a great meal! On both of my other visits I had the Stuffed Cabbage a la Kolozsvar which was amazing, in fact it was my favourite meal in Budapest. This dish was loaded and came with a cabbage roll (filled with seitan, brown rice, faux sausage, oatmeal and garlic), a marinated - grilled seitan cutlet, a grilled soy wiener, soy sour cream all on top a bed of sauerkraut. I could eat this dish everyday for the rest of my life! Highly recommend! I had a few other deserts as well which were all lovely! They have a wide range of vegan treats & ice cream. This is a great place if you are looking for a fantastic meal or if you were just wanting some desert and a coffee.More

Lovely Hungarian vegan restaurant & pizzeria. Central location in quiet street with trees. Food was amazing, huge portions; service was great. The menu isn't huge but there's plenty of choice and there is a seasonal menu + weekly specials. If you book for dinner good...to know they close at 21.00.More

After 2 years since our last time in Budapest, we returned with the main purpose of visiting our favorite restaurant which we had visited many times before. Considering the time that had passed, I kept thinking: "nah! a restaurant cannot be THAT good". Damn, was...I wrong! This place is indeed even better than I recalled. These people make magic in their kitchen! They manage to take a simple vegetable and bring it to a whole new level of flavor where the full potential of the ingredient is achieved. This is not a place for vegetarians or vegans... This is a place for great quality food enthusiasts. This time we spent a week in the city and visited the restaurant FIVE times (and the excuse for not going every single day is only because the two other days we were visiting Pècs). It is for sure my favorite restaurant ever. It does for sure deserve a Michelin star. Oh! And it's it only about the food, by the way... The great service and ambiance count as a big part of the experience too. Big thanks to every single member of staff for being so amazing in what they do and so nice to us on our visits. A special thanks to Gabor, our multilingual friend. =D We can't wait to go back already!More
