their wrap is a mixture. you are free to choose almost anything vegan into your wrap from chickpeas to falafel. at the end, your stomach is full and your wallet weights almost same. plus it is located in an area which definitely needed one meatless place.

Pros: tasty and rich, very cheap, location appreciated

After being in istanbul for a few days I didnt find any good food. Sdaly we went here just before we were going to the airport at 11am, it was so close to were we stayed too.
They have wraps and you can just point at what you want, a few things are not vegan (in the cooked section, some salads and some sauces) But there is a young woman who speaks English and will advise you. It was cheap and tasty.
Quite fresh and delicious.
I would of gone here every day if i knew it was so close. Definately worth a visit. (Its not the most amazing wraps but it can be hard to find good vegan food in istanbul so this was the best place i went to)

Interesting little place, it looks like a chain at first since the branding and decoration is professional, but it's more of a quirky veg. wrap place with a lot of options.

Main item on offer is a wrap which you can order with your choice of fillings. The range is quite good and thankfully it's more than the usual boring salad - you can get chickpeas, cooked aubergine, spring onions, diced potatoes, hummus, tahini and other good stuff as well as the regulars of tomato and lettuce etc.

There is also icli kofte and lahmucun listed on the menu which are not vegetarian, however they are from an earlier menu and are not now being sold, so everything is vegetarian. There are some items with mayo etc. but most appear to be vegan.

The prices are incredibly cheap for what you get though, and in terms of getting a satisfying meal, it would be very difficult to make something yourself for less money. This is the best value veg. food I have found in Istanbul. The staff are also friendly and speak English.

The place wasn't very busy when we went there, and I only hope that they can do well enough given the Turkish predilection for meat. There are also some outside tables and the Kadikoy area is a nice one for walking around if you want to take a break from the other parts of Istanbul.

Note: Rulo is on the Asian side of Istanbul, you can get the ferry to Kadikoy from either Karakoy or Eminonu in 20 minutes and then easily walk there. The map location shown now is correct.

Pros: Cheap + Tasty, Nice staff and seating areas, Good selection of wrap fillings
Cons: No hot dishes as such

This cafe/snack bar is a delightful vegetarian place selling tortilla-style wraps with a range of delicious fillings. These include chickpeas, falafel, a lentil dish, three different kinds of aubergine dish, as well as the usual salad veg and herbs,and a variety of condiments, pepper and oils.

The owner/staff I spoke to was very friendly and helpful, speaking good English. She explained which fillings were vegan and though I like to think I would've guessed correctly if she hadn't been around.

The only difficulty I had was finding the cafe, which is on the Nailbey Sokak, but much further up than is shown on the map. The address was correct and passers-by pointed me in the right direction. I pointed this out to staff and maybe they will have corrected it before you come to visit. The meal was very cheap and very nice and filling, costing only 4 Turkish lira (about 2 Euros).

The Asian side of Istanbul is well worth a visit, or even a place to base your visit to Istanbul. It is 20 minutes by ferry, which costs about a Euro, to Sultanahmet (the heart of the old city) and yet it is free of all the touristy bustle that you have on the European side of the Bosphorus. Hotels are about half the price and the whole area is a much more genuine feel to it.

Pros: Hassle-free vegan food, Nice atmosphere, Friendly
Cons: Only sell wraps,, Not really a place for an evening meal, Not quite as shown on the map
