First Review by eye of judgement

Fun little place - Edit

Limited options but very tasty. Never thought I'd find a vegan Turkish snackbar like this but it was an amazing experience. Tried the köfte wrap and the çigköfte, both very tasty.

Pros: Tasty food, Food you'd not expect to find in a vegan version

Cons: Limited options

Great healthy vegan snacks - Edit

Let me start out by saying this establishment is 100% vegan and deserves 5 stars. Hopefully Happy Cow fixes their label soon. Hearty, healthy and delicious Turkish snacks! I was pleasantly surprised :)
Generous portions, very helpful and friendly staff. You have to try the filled cofte, super yummy.

Pros: completely vegan menu big portions

delicious, fresh and healthy VEGAN place - Edit

It was such a pleasant surprise to discover this unassuming but wonderful vegan place! They serve vegan köfte in a wrap with ingredients like bulgur, herbs and spices, fresh tomatoes, lettuce, mint and recently also a delicious falaffel in a wrap, with houmous, fresh vegetables, herbs and spices. It all tastes very fresh and super healthy too. It costs little and is a real good filling lunch or dinner meal. Needless to say I'm quite a regular at this place!

Pros: fresh, healthy, price

Quick snack - Edit

I actually went to Cigkoftem in Zaandam a while ago and was happily surprised by it. So when I saw a location opening up near where I live I got really excited! My fiance and I decided to get dinner here after we had some drinks nearby. Had the wrap and my fiance the burger. Decided to sit down because we were hungry but the place wasn't really decorated (yet?) so I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a nice sit-down dinner. It is fastfood though so no big deal for us! Since the portion is more snack size (or we might just have big appetites) we ordered another wrap each to take. Service is good and friendly staff. It did feel like they were still kind of figuring out their way around with doing deliveries and helping in-store customers but I'm sure that will get better in no-time since the place is fairly new!

Pros: Delicious (fairly healthy) snack, Friendly staff, Cheap

Cons: Not the coziest atmosphere, My fiance missed the option to order fries

Beware - Edit

I went to this place, but was a bit disappointed when we found it.
- first of: it is a fastfood/ takeaway place rather than a restaurant.
- second: it wasn't all vegan at all. The base dough of teh Cigköftem is indeed vegan (and i believe rawfood), made from nuts and spices, but they also sold Cigkoftem filled with minced meat.

There was not a lot of choice in dishes. Basically it was Cigkoftem, spicy or less spicy, in a wrap or on a plate.

I give them 3 happy cows because the Cigkoftem WAS good, but I only recommend going to this place for a quick lunch.

Pros: the stuff IS good, cheap

Cons: few dishes, not all vegan , location
