Came here on the last day of a four day trip to the city, and had the joy of going to the airport later that day and so time wasn’t a restriction to us on this occasion. The staff were friendly and I even shared a little bit of ‘banter’ with who appeared to be the head waiter over my attempts at trying to say some of the Hungarian foods listed on the menu. A nice touch especially at how bad I am being from South Yorkshire, England.

We both ordered a set of freshly made drinks off of the quite compression juice list, and they came shortly after with minimal fuss. All correct; so far so good, Yorkshireman very happy.

Then onto the mains. I had the ‘Coal burner pizza’ whilst my partner had the seitan kievs. I thought both dishes were very nice especially hers (typical) and came without delay, brought by the same friendly waiter.

The feel inside the restaurant is very relaxed with a slight touch of class with both the table layouts and decor upping this feel. Music is also a nice touch.

Overall a nice meal, a nice experience. The main positive is the very comprehensive menu which some vegan restaurants simply cannot match. I’d come again.

Not all dishes taste good, but speciality does so take one of these, like the goulash soup or the stuffed cabbage

This restaurant is one of the few vegan options present in Budapest. While I welcomed a break from heavy Hungarian food, I must say I way unimpressed with what this restaurant had to offer. The food was pretty bland and unadventureous, although I must say that shakes and sweets improved the overall impression. Staff was also very friendly and attentive so points for that. All in all: staff get 5 stars, pastry gets 4 and main dishes get 2

I brought my friend to try vegan food whilst we were in Budapest. This was my favourite meal of the holiday. We had a sharing platter and pizza which was soo much food! However, I have no regrets due to it being completely amazing. Unfortunately, I had no room for cake. I would love to come back and dine here again. Thank you.

Budapest has only a handful of vegetarian/vegan restaurants, so we ended up here due to the lack of options. We were disappointed in that this restaurant, while being vegetarian/vegan, lacks the confidence to build a menu that champions vegetarian/vegan dishes for what they are. Here it seems that their approach to vegetarian/vegan food is to simulate meat dishes, but without using meat. In my opinion, vegetarian/vegan food does not need to "look" like meat dishes. There is enough splendor in vegetarian/vegan dishes, in both taste and look, to make lovely meals, without them needing to look like meat dishes. What a shame....
