Heavenly brunch

Very interesting vegan dishes. The noodles are definitely a winner and the cinnamon rolls are the cherry on top.
I would’ve loved to try the vegan phyllo börek but they were out.
It was very busy on a Sunday morning but we we still were seated within a few minutes. Great food and great service!

Pros: Original dishes , Very tasty

Cons: Not all vegan

Living in Berlin, I have been to Factory Girl several times. Their cinnamon buns are spectacular and we have never had a bad meal. This was my first time at the Amsterdam location, which I visited with several friends for brunch. We ordered a lot of food, and it was, of course, fantastic. Not cheap, but we felt worth the price. It wasn't until later that we realized the receipt included a line with what seems to be an "optional" 10% service charge (despite also having a line that a service charge was not included - which is clearly misleading at best). We were not informed of this and didn't realize it in the moment, so ended up adding a tip that brought the total tip to over 20% of the bill. This is the kind of sneaky tactic I would expect from a restaurant in the U.S., but it's completely out of line for a European restaurant. This has left a bitter taste in my mouth and I'm hesitant to return. If you need to raise your prices, raise them. But don't add a service charge and then not tell your customers. Had they just been up front about it, we would have left well enough alone.

I'm just disappointed because I love the food here, but this kind of underhanded approach to bilking your customer is gross. I suppose as long as you know this is going to happen, you can decide accordingly, but know what you're getting into. There are a lot of other options in the area that won't do this.

Pros: Delicious food, decent portions, Cinnamon buns are spectacular, Good service

Cons: Duplicitous service charge

Tastes very good, but pricey

€19 is a bit high for a dish, but the Vegan Turk's Dad was really good. My companion got shakshuka and. Preferred mine, but liked the coffee a lot: following a cappuccino with a latte. I'd definitely go again.

Foodie heaven brunch

The Vegan Turk's Dad was just great: fantastic flavours, beautifully presented and a pretty generous, satisfying portion.

I'll be back to try more, definitely.

Great vegan brekkie!

Had Vegan Turks Dad and Shakshuka, both fabulous! Busy place, had to wait outside for a bit, app showed you your place on the waiting list.

Asked for second serving of bread, which arrived only when my plate was almost empty.

10% tip was already incorporated in the total price, but of course "totally voluntary" - so not done, this approach. Hence only 4/5.

Best vegan breakfast

We came across this restaurant by chance and were all absolutely thrilled. The menu consists exclusively of vegetarian and vegan dishes, for every vegetarian dish there's a vegan version. The breakfast - especially the hearty dishes - has an oriental influence and is worthwhile for all who want to have a different and special breakfast. Absolute recommendation!

Delicious food, I had the vegan scramble with extra mince meat. The house dessert was also yummy. The service, tho nice was quite slow and the waiters seemed to just ignore people at times.

Fantastic quick breakfast!

I had the vegan cinnamon bun and my husband had the “Butcher’s Gone Fishing” bowl. Both were so good! My bun was just the right size and sweetness. His bowl was fantastic - a little spicy but not too much! Lots of yummy options and just 8 minutes from the museum quarter!

Pros: Food, Atmosphere , Location

A strange first impression because of digital menu

Turk’s dad was delicious! I haven’t tried anything similar before but the flavors were so good.

The only downside is that they don’t have a physical menu. You have to pick up your phone and scan a QR code to check the menu.

3.5 stars: inconsistent quality

This restaurant is often busy, but more quiet after lunch time. However, in the afternoon, they can be out of some homemade items (e.g. Hemingway juice and lemonade). Their staff can be nice or aloof, depending on who you get.
What I dislike is that you can only view their menu via a QR-code, but have to order via a waiter. Also, on the bill, they show an amount with and without 10% tip to encourage you to tip. I prefer to decide for myself how much I want to tip.

Their zucchini fritters and ‘big in Japan’ were quite tasty, but too greasy. Their coco anjela was very tasty.
Their homemade juice and their kombucha were good as well.

Delicious breakfast & lunch

I would like to compliment the wonderful waitress who attended to me during my visit. Not only was she incredibly kind and welcoming, but she also showed great knowledge and understanding when it came to my gluten intolerance. She took the time to guide me through the menu, offering helpful suggestions and answering all my questions with patience and care.

The food was simply amazing! Very flavourful and fresh.

Pros: Glutenfree options, Kind staff

Experience could be better

The food is delicious, especially the vegan shakshuka and Turks mom dishes, and we loved the vibe inside. But there's always a wait outside to get in, which can take sometimes an hour on weekends. They don't accept reservations so it's expected that you wait outside. This does affect the overall customer experience and a better system could be used to improve service.

Amazing flavours

I chose to come here based on reviews as I was looking for a breakfast restaurant. It is a bit of a trek from the centre, but it was well worth it. I hadn't really picked up that it was a middle eastern/persian themed restaurant until we got there. The menu is more extensive than you can see online. I had a "big nana borek". Honestly I don't even know exactly what it was - fillo pastry with filling and vegan feta, vegan yogurt, nuts, olive tapenade... I don't even know if it was sweet or savoury haha! But it was an amazing set of flavours. Also had a cinnamon cardamon bum. My husband had the pancakes which had a pear jam and berries and chocolate. They will seat you at a table with other diners, which was fine, but just a surprise as we don't really do that in the UK! You access the menu with a QR code. My phone couldn't see their free WiFi and my data wasn't working. The issue was my phone I'm sure, but could be an issue for others.

Pros: Range of options , Amazing flavours, Friendly staff

Cons: A bit of a trek, Menu only on website

overrated and overpriced

we had the spicy tofu scramble, the pancakes and a börek. they charge almost 20 euros for the tofu scramble, completely overpriced for a small serving of tofu and beans. the pancakes tasted good, the matcha latte not so much. there are a ton of other more reasonably priced and better tasting options in amsterdam. wouldn’t go back.

Delicious but Amsterdam prices

This place is cozy and has a great menu. We went here for brunch and enjoyed it. Especially the specialty dessert Coco Anjelas was great and an unique combination between yoghurt, cream and tiramisu style breakfast. The feta borek I had was great too. My boyfriend said that the vegan pancakes were average, nothing special.

Only downsides were that it was very hot inside and the coffee especially was overpriced. Also, it can get super busy as it is located in the Pijp area. Be prepared to wait during the weekend. Staff is generally friendly.

Good food but a little hyped

We arrived at 9 am on easter saturday and luckily there were only two couples in front of us waiting in line. The restaurant filled quite fast and at 9:45 every table in the front was full. There were additional tables in the back, but nonetheless they let people wait outside for quite some time. There are no menus. You have to scan a qr code and the website is rather confusing. Also the lounge music was a bit loud and ennerving.

The food though was tasty and nicely arranged. The shakshuka was flavorful, not too spicy and the addition of hummus and harissa is a nice twist. The vegan scramble is also very tasty. All in all it was a little to much oil on the salad and the bread was toasted too long but that is my personal preference. The coco anjela truly is heavenly.

All in all it was good but nothing outstanding and a little too „instagrammy“ for our taste.

It was packed to the rafters when we went so the service was a bit slower than I'd like, and the food didn't entirely make up for it. The menu and website have this story about how the place was set up that I don't care about, much like preambles above recipes on blogs. I could potentially be coaxed into going again but it's unlikely.
