Really good

I had a mix of everything - falafels, fries, the cigkoftem, hummus as well. The taste was really nice and the food was cheap. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area.

Pros: very cheap for the area, good food, main dishes are vegan

spicy wrap & great size!

i had the vegan cigkoftem w/ lettuce, pickles, and tomatoes inside. it was decently spicy and filling! the flavor was ok. i think i’ll go for the falafel next time. overall, a well-priced and big lunch wrap only for €5!

Pros: doesn’t break the bank, nice & spicy

Service pas ouf mais meilleur qualité/prix

L'accueil est souvent froid mais c'est frais, vraiment pas cher et les falafels ne sont pas frits mais cuits au four résultat : super goût, pas gras et les cigkofte sont une pure merveille. Attention les boissons ne sont pas toutes Vegans.

Pros: Sain, Frais et fait main , Pas cher

Cons: Service , Salle peu confortable

LOVE this place

I wish so much we had this in America. When I go overseas, it is on my "To Do" list to find a Cigkoftem. I had no idea what Turkish fast food would even entail until I found this place a few years ago by chance one night in France. I've now been to a couple of their locations and every time, cannot get enough. I brought my boyfriend this visit. He was amazed at how creative and interesting this fare was; a spicy, thick tomato paste offered up in a hamburger bun or pita basically. We loved it so much, we ordered a 2nd round of food. (Shhhh!) Dirt cheap yet served up on lovely platters. The staff speaks limited English (at least in the locations in which I've visited) but we always manage to sign our ways through to order awesome food. GO!! p.s. If vegan, skip the desserts. They're only vegetarian-friendly as they have butter.

Pros: Inexpensive, Fast, Late night hours

Cons: Not in America :(

Good veggie/vegan fast food

I don’t remember the name of the food I ordered, It was kind of a wrap and a fried small ball of vegetables, and it was really good and cheap (very cheap). Good quality fast food!

Pros: service, price

Good, cheap, and nice waiter

Cigköftem is a nice turkish fast food in Lyon. Most of the plates are vegans, some desserts are only vegetarians.

You can have a very good "vegan cigköfte" wrap for less than 4€. The vegetables were fresh and sliced just in front of us.

The person who served us was very nice and explained the menu.

Pros: Good, Cheap

Cons: Fast food : not organic

Fast vegan wrap all day long

I only go there for their Turkish wrap, which is my ultimate comfort food when in Lyon - any time of the day (rare in France, except for the kebab). Tasty! It is very spicy though.
It is not your top health option (though it has a leaf of lettuce and slices of cucumber), but getting anything vegan downtown is very hard.

Pros: tasty, cheap, long hours

Cons: too spicy, few choices

Vegan Friendly, pas vegan.

La chaîne de restaurant vegan Cigköftem a une antenne à Lyon. Si la chaîne de restaurant est belle et bien végane, L’antenne lyonnaise propose en plus des plats de la chaînes, des produits transformés de grandes marques, non véganes.

Pros: Bon goût

Cons: Grande chaîne, pas bio, Produits non véganes, Trop épicé

Rapide et pas chère, le fast food végane bien pratique.
Falafel correct et leur drôle de pâtes bien épicée est très bonne.

Pros: pas chère

Cons: pas de frites, un peu léger
