First Review by vegan_ryan

Has moved - Edit

The cafe has moved around the corner on Str. Aranmeasca. It was disappointing. First of all, the name Kirtan means sacred chanting. But they were playing loud rock music! It is a small place, but an extensive menu. But only 2 -3 items from the menu were available. And I went at 12 noon. The place is popular for its pies of all kinds. They were literally flying through the door. People were coming in just to buy the pies. I had the bean soup (quite good) and a couple of pies (not so good, since they do not provide any relish or sauce with it). Also, be careful, because many dishes list eggs as an ingredient. They do not have any fresh juices or even lemonade. Everything is bottled. The place is very inexpensive. May try again.

Pros: Vegetarian, Inexpensive, Location

Cons: Loud rock music, Menu selections not available, Not tasty

Great food, total life-saver - Edit

This place was a life-saver during a few days in Chisinau. I ate here for lunch and dinner all 3 days.

The owner's daughter speaks decent English, but she's the only one. She can point out to you which items are vegan. If she's not working, you can point to yourself and say "veganski" (vee-gahn-skee) and that seemed to work OK, also.

Food is ultra cheap, if you're coming from the Euro or US Dollar. I tried 8 or 9 different things on the menu, and it was all quite good.

Recommendation: potato-filled pies. Get a few for the road, also.

It's also fine if you sit here and hang out for a while, considering there were always old men playing cards whenever I went.

Pros: All-veg
