You can't miss the "ALL VEGAN" banner outside 96 Zen. We spotted it from the tram and hopped off at the station just over the road. The food here is unbelievable value for money. An enormous plate for vegan food for £6?! We thought it...More

Big portions and cheap prices. I got a medium sized take away food and it was too big for me. It wasn’t a problem of course, I got to eat this delicious food in the evening as well! All vegan and all good.

Very modest store front, but the food is fantastic!! As others have said, you get tons of food for a low, low price. I got a small and I could hardly finish it (each dish comes with your choice of entree and rice or noodles)....More

Went twice, the owners are really nice and the food is superb. You can eat well for less than £10 per head.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
