Good but too expensive

The hummus is delicious, but the bill goes up quickly…

Turkish Delight

Huge variety of delicious vegan dishes to loose your mind over.

I spiced up my lunch just a tad too much which makes it difficult to afterwards distinguish all the other spices. So you might want to be careful with the chili flakes.

Amazing variety

Pretty much agree with previous post, prices went up a little. The cold starter dinner buffet is very impressive, 26,90€ à volonté. Vegan options are not marked but some common sense should help identify the vegan dishes, or ask staff. Very busy and popular. Choice of warm vegan items seemed very limited, so maybe not best for warm meal.

Pros: amazing choice, aromatic, fresh

Cons: can get a little busy

Amazingly tasty food

This is a buffet type restaurant. For lunch you pay for the weight of your plate ( 2,60€/100g). For the evening you have the choice between the weight option or all-you-can-eat for 25€.
They have an entirely vegetarian/vegan cold buffet and then at the end you have the grilled meats and fish.
The food is always fresh, always amazing, flavourful, colourful. I always get excited when I go here. It is a bit expensive though so I don't go very often.
I did see on their website that they have a 25% discount for take aways! I'll try it out.
This place is usually packed for lunch, expect long lines at the buffet. But people free up tables quite quickly so as long as you are a small group there is no problem finding a seat.

Pros: Lots of delicious vegan options, Good for mixed groups (omnis+veg), DELICIOUS

Cons: A bit on the expensive side, Gets crowded at lunch, Not open on weekends :-(

Tons of options all excellent

The restaurant has a cute outdoor square and beautiful inside space. So many veg options on the buffet and all of them were excellent. I would eat here everyday. Decent price for a buffet restaurant

Pros: Tons of options, delicious, and great staff

ok, but not great

I heard a lot about el Turco from many people, so I was eager to go. While I found the selection of food nice, nothing jumped out at me as being above average. I'm not sure the food is prepared fresh on the spot, some seems like it is, some isn't, it wasn't easy to clearly identify what's vegan, vegetarian and meat, though apparently for others it is. The products don't seem to have anything special meriting the price (organic, seasonal, regional). Service, food preparation and presentation comes across as moderately lazy. While it's not bad, for these prices I will not be rushing back. Personally i preferred the fresher tastes and efforts of both Dolma and Moonfood.

Pros: vegetarian options

Cons: taste is not fresh, price-a bit expensive, self-service

I arrived about 1:30PM, hoping I would be at the tail end of the lunch crowd. No. I roamed around for about 15 minutes through dense crowds in search of a table (...or anyone that might offer any help or explanation of how things work). The food line was easily another 15 minutes. My lunch hour was gone. And so was I. So much for the efficiency of prepared food.

Pros: Uhhhhh.....  Lots of choices.  You won't feel

Cons: Insanity. Seemingly understaffed; no one to answe

Turkish gem

Went there for dinner and was happily surprised by both the food and the range of choices for vegetarians and vegans.
Picture the best of what Turkey can offer food-wise and here it is!
Stuffed vine leafs, imaginative salads, flavorful dips (hommous, bean, beetroot, etc), yaourt-based dish, eggplants, you name it.
Will definitively go back.
