Delicious Italian food in an unusual setting - Edit

Quirky Italian restaurant based in an old double decker bus. The food is delicious and worth trying if you're in the area. There's lots of outdoor seating space too: perfect hangout for summer evenings.

Funky setting for a summer snack - Edit

Having travelled a decent way on a dreary day to get here it didn't fully rock my boat as not all the menu was stocked and it is quite a limited menu any way, seating is outside which is great for summer but a little chilly that day and the food was nice but not mind blowing. The portions were small for the price. That said still a pleasant experience. I had the lasagne and it was pretty lasagne like. There's also a funky cocktail bar on site. If you are in the area on a sunny day and fancy a snack and aren't broke go for it otherwise I'd pick somewhere else.

Pros: Funky bus to order from, Fully vegan

Cons: Seating outside , Not great value for money, Small menu not fully stocked

Great food on a BUS! - Edit

It's a bus, and you sit on it and have vegan Italian food. What's not to love? The tiramisu is insane, and you eat it on a BUS!! Cool, man.

Pros: Bus.

Food is nice, but bad service - Edit

We had burger, fries, panelle and lasagne and for desserts the vegamisu and the monster cookie. The food was nice, but served only lukewarm and afterwards we had to wait for over an hour for our desserts. Even after asking we still had to wait. They gave us a money return without asking for it. When people left, there was noone cleaning the tables or any service at all. Vegamisu was fabulous, the monster cookie was horrible, but that's me hating anything tasting like Nutella.

Pros: Everything vegan, Good tasting food, A cat lives on the bus

Cons: Bad service, Long waits, Cold food

Disappointing - Edit

OK burger. Served on disposable plates, with £3 fries. (£1 extra if you want cheese). Surprisingly unfriendly staff, and no condiments on offer in the dirty and cold bus. Always pleased to have options, but with so many amazing and reasonable alternatives in Hackney, I won't be returning I'm afraid.

Firm favourite after one visit - Edit

My friend had told me about this place quite a while ago and I just never got around to trying it.

We found the bus, there was nobody else there so we got the whole bus to ourselves. I had a cheeseburger and it was hands down the best burger I've ever had, even the bread is so delicious.

The staff were very friendly. It's such a cool, quirky place I can't wait to come back in the summer and sit outside. We also got to meet a great cat who I think lives on the bus.

Pros: there's a cat, you get to dine on a bus, food is absolutely delicious

Cons: none

Great food, awesome service - Edit

We had the arancini balls and the soup of the day, which were both delicious, and then a pizza and lasagna.
The pizza was more of a toasted roll than a pizza, but still yummy!
Food was great and decor was very cool
Definitely try the arancini balls!!!

scan your vegan oysters! - Edit

This is pretty great. It's junkyard-chic and very good value, and goes beyond your standard vegan options. There were some real highlights: the burger was top-notch with focaccia bun, and the tiramisu goes into the top 5 vegan desserts of all time.

Downsides: service was slow and very confused (one dessert came with the bill, slowly followed by our side); and the polenta left something to be desired.

Pros: dat tiramisu tho!, variety of options

Cons: service

super creative set up, the food was great and the staff very nice. a bit oily for my taste (not suitable for hclf vegans) but that's just preference!
The little kitten jumping around in the outside area was super cute too!!

Pros: very tasty, creative, friendly

Cons: quite oily (mostly fried food)

Just FaB is just FAB! - Edit

Just had an amazing afternoon at Just FaB. The food was fantastic, big red bus made for a fun and funky location, and the service from the staff was exceptional. Eating on the top deck and then hanging out and playing fussball in the yard afterwards was a great way to spend the afternoon. We were so tempted to try everything on the menu, but with generous portions and so many good options, we just didn't have room. As if we needed any more reasons to come back - we're already planning our next visit! A must-visit.

Pros: Everything is vegan!, Staff are fantastic, Food is delicious

Vegan Comfort Food / Great setting - Edit

This place is a bit of a jewel. It's delicious, all vegan, and tucked away in a converted bus on hackney road. The menu isn't expensive and offers burgers and chips along with a smattering of italian specialties. On the plus side, a few of these specialties are very difficult to come by for vegans and you can eat them while gazing out the windows of a double decker bus, sipping wine, in pleasant, low-key, surroundings. On the negative side, almost all the food is very carb-heavy and you may find yourself longing for vegetables.

Try the homemade arancini, the lasagna, and the vegemisu (vegan tiramisu).

Pros: vegan tiramisu, VEGAN TIRAMISU!, great atmosphere and friendly staff, inexpensive / good value

Cons: jazzed up burger and chip joint

awesome food in a unique setting - Edit

For anyone visiting London they should put this place on their must do list. The food is wonderful - Italian dishes veganized and you can choose to take away, sit outside on picknick tables to enjoy your food or (even better) enjoy the food in the upper deck of the bus that was remodeled to accommodate several tables! I had the arranchini as a starter which were really great while waiting for the main course of freshly baked lasagna, which was absolutely delicious! They also have several other typical Italian items on the menu as well as a range of burgers and pizzas.

Pros: great food, unique location, friendly staff

Cons: location - not the most obvious place to pass

Top notch vegan food that's well priced! - Edit

Didn't really know what to expect, but as soon as I saw the menu I was relieved. Pretty much everything on offer is a vegans dream, so I went for the vegan cheese burger and some vegan spinach cheese balls as a side. Both were delicious, fresh and filling. Can't wait to come back again and try the other stuff! Can't recommend this place more, especially as the weather gets warmer!

Pros: Tonnes of options, Friendly staff, Cosy cool atmosphere
