A London Experience - Edit

A great place to get a quick, tasty meal. Fabio has some unique Italian dishes that I have not seen anywhere else. I ordered the Panella, which is a fried chickpea fritter, and it was lemony and very tasty.

So FAB - Edit

Amazing vegan Italian food in a really quirky setting. We sat in the outdoor seating, but the upstairs of the food bus has been turned into a little mini-restaurant too! The vegamisu (vegan tiramisu) is just AMAZING.

Pros: Excellent food, Fun and friendly staff, Quirky vibe

Cons: Quite expensive

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
