Dolma is the Turkish word for filled food, including stuffed wine leaves, peppers or tomatoes. Dolmades is the word used in Greek. Both cuisines are rich in their vegetarian food. The name of the restaurant makes you expect to eat similar vegetarian cuisine. It uses that connotation but does not deliver anything close to it. I think this is too... More

PhilippotVincent, Gérant at Dolma, responded to this review

Dear B D, The Dolma name of the restaurant does not come from Turkish or Greek dolma (stuffed vegetables) but from the name of a Tibetan deity. The old managers of the restaurant gave this name in 1974 during the hippie period and I realize that this is confusing. Our specialty is above all vegetarian cuisine from around the world... More

I am vegan so I was of course looking for options in Brussels. Dolma is a great choice because there is a large buffet for dinner with many options to choose from. All options are vegetarian, most are vegan. The restaurant is cosy and the atmosphere very pleasant. You can easily strike a conversation with your neighbour. The dishes range... More

Great quality and daily changing dishes (check the website for the current menu), nice staff, which is rather unique in Brussels, many vegan options incl dessert and a very large choice for a fair price.

We went in a couple to this restaurant after having heard really good comments —expectations weren't met at all. Food was average at its best and choice was quite narrow, not worth 20e. Thus, being there on Saturday night, they start running out of soup and quiche just after 9pm. Staff not very friendly, nobody came to us to explain... More

Based on what I'd read and heard about Dolma, my expectations were not at all met. It's wonderful to have vegan/vegetarian options, naturally, but the food is average at best. I liken it to the following: by trying to do so much and having an array of so many flavours, they don't end up doing anything particularly great. It's certainly... More

I went there with my son who loves meat, but since we had a hard time to find glutenfree options in Brussels (he has a gluten allergy) decided to give it a try --- and he was truly impressed by the vegetarian food (and I completely agree). Excellent fresh and tasty food, a great selection of glutenfree options and very... More

The veggie buffet (all you can eat, 19,90 EUR), beside being good value for money, was utterly delish, with an Eastern twist to it. The quiche (spinach, feta, nutmeg) was particularly scrumptious. The ambiance is very nice, the only downside of the buffet option is that you end up waiting forever for your drinks. Will definitely go back.
