First Review by MonicaBischoff

cheap and mostly fine - Edit

I like their falafel and drinks (they have a special Arabic drink). Music is awful sometimes.
I also don't like their tables, some of them are too low, while chairs are not proportional, and you have to eat in a strange way

Pros: cheap, tasty

Cons: bad music, uncomfortable tables+chairs

Enjoyed it - Edit

I enjoyed this place after coming here when Horizontal was closed unexpectedly. The food was very cheap and even though the waitress didn't speak any English, she was able to point out which of the menu items were vegan. Good value for money!

Pros: cheap

Cons: toilet isn't very tidy

Good, Plenty, Inexpensive! - Edit

Others have said it: here you can eat a lot for little money. And at the same time, it's tasty! This place is not the nearest to the tourist spots, so you'll have to walk a bit or use transportation, but it's worth it.
The atmosphere is a bit "young" for my taste, but the pluses made me go there a second time, when I sat in the front part rather than in the section behind. That was better already.

Pros: Good tasting food, fresh ingredients, Big portions, Really inexpensive

Cons: Amosphere must suit you, Not very central

Huge portion sizes! - Edit

This is a veg cafe with a wide selection of vegan options, but mostly they're famous for their falafels (hence the name). The biggest astonishment to me was the price per portion ratio. I ordered a vegan borscht soup with a falafel wrap and was astonished at the huge bowl and giant wrap that was brought out to me about 7 minutes later. Honestly, if you're on a tight budget and need a huge filling meal to get you through most of your day, this is definitely the place to go!

Racy and cheap - Edit

Though not positioning itself as a vegan place, has plenty of choices for vegans. Strong arabic fleur :)

Nice and cheap! - Edit

I live nearby this place and come here very often. Cheap and tasty. Apart from many variations of falafel they serve soups, salads, sides, fresh juices and a few oriental desserts (some of them vegan).
They also have lots of table games and they are still open at midnight!

Cheap, nice, vegetarian. - Edit

The place only serves vegetarian food, with a number of vegan options available. Falafel, which was just right - spicy and juicy and crunchy all at the same time - was served on a plate, with fries, hummous, bread and veggies. The ful medames with hummous, which is part of the selection of Arabic vegetarian specialties, was delicious, served in a pot.
The looks of the place, as well as beer availability have improved since I first visited a few weeks ago - they have now installed a proper sign, and have beer on tap. The music was a bit cheesy though, and people do smoke inside sometimes. Very cheap though - can't beat that, and the taste!

Pros: Authentic and nice food, The relaxed atmosphere, Arabic specialties

Cons: Music, Smoke

Horrific Food - Edit

While the food is very cheap and tasty, I warn you when coming here because you might get sick.
В то время как еда очень дешевая и вкусная, я предупреждаю вас, когда приезжал сюда, потому что вы могли бы заболеть.
[edit by staff]

Pros: Tasty, Cheap
