You gotta try this!

Although the one in Grünbergerstr is good, I prefer the one in Boxhagenerstr. People working there are very very kind. You can custom almost all of the dishes, if desired.
The atmosphere is great thanks to their non-stop quality reggae.

Especially good the vegan teller, where you can try a big variety of things, everything delicious. Outstanding the soups, falafel and the lentil rolls.
Ridiculously cheap (For 5/6€ you'll be full!) Almost everything is vegan or can be cooked vegan.

Pros: Tasty food, Extremely kind service, Reggae, price
Cons: Just two little biscuits as dessert

Great place

Love these guys!
Not too much to say that hasn't been mentioned already.
Great, simple, quick food at good prices.
Very vegan friendly.

Pros: Inexpensive, Delicious, Peanut sauce!

Falafel with peanut sauce?! YES PLEASE

I'd never heard of falafel with peanut sauce before, but it has 2 things I love: falafel & peanut sauce. It's a great combination.

Definitely go here for a cheap, quick bite to eat. It's amazing.

Pros: falafel + peanut sauce!
Cons: Serves meat

Very tasty and inexpensive.

A good place, definitely recommended, even if you need to go out of your way a bit. They have vegan, vege, and non-vegetarian options. So yes, your fish and meat eating friends can be satisfied. I've been twice, had a the Tofu Madagascar and the Vegan Platter. Both were quite yummy, and 3 + 4.5 euros respectively. There are only 4, 2 person tables inside and one long picnic table outside. The music is good. And the vibe is good. It's more like a falafel place, but seems much healthier. It's not organic however. The food is rather unique, kind of a cross between mexican and greek!

Pros: tasy food, inexpensive , unique
Cons: small?

Had the tamiya (Sudanese falafel). Tasty, if slightly dry and the peanut sauce is diffeent, if fairly messy to eat. Would return and try something else. Very cheap. (Friedrichshain).

Pros: Sudanese is different, Good portion
Cons: Tiny place


Very tasty Veganteller, cheap prices

Nil is a tiny Sudanese snack bar with mostly vegetarian food.
What can be served vegan is mentioned on the menu. Both times I went there I had the Veganteller which cost 4€ and was enough to be full afterwards. The food really tastes different to what I know - especially the Maniok chips were an interesting thing to taste.
In total there are five vegan dishes available.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Pros: new taste experiences, low prices, friendly staff
Cons: some meat on the menu
