What a delicious treasure chest - Edit

We had the mushroom dumplings, the braided artichokes, the pomegranate vinegar salad and two deli shouts desserts and couldn't be happier to find such unusual and delicious food during our Israel trip. Also the Georgian wine was superb. Cannot wait to come back!

Pros: Georgian vegan food, hello?!, Beautifully decorated restaurant, Vegan dumplings!

Splendid - Edit

I am very glad for being the ambassador of Happy Cow in Athens, Greece because thanks to that, my friends and I were invited by the lovely ambassador in Tel Aviv, to have dinner here.

The appetizers, Georgian bread, plate with many different salads and aubergine something were all delicious!

Their wine was also very good!

Hearing that we only came for the march for animals rights, they offered us a second bottle of wine at the end!

We also loved the belly dancer who was thrilled to see that my friend knew how to dance because she was also a belly dancer in the past!

We had a very good time and we also loved the paintings on the walls. Very sophisticated and they reminded us of the cards of our favorite table game, Dixit!

Pros: Hospitality, Variety, Live music

LOVED IT - Edit

Not only was the food delicious, but the service was incredible. I'm talking Canadian-level of good. The staff was patient, attentive, and friendly. I even got to have a nice conversation with the owner. My lunch had a really cute name. Something like The Little Chicken Who Got Saved. Definitely recommend this place for the food and the service. 10/10

Pros: food, service

True vegan restaurant - Edit

I can't give enough praise for this restaurant which turned vegan several years ago after the owner became vegan. Nanuchka combines delicious vegan Georgian food with a really fun ambiance. This restaurant is a must visit for all vegans in tel aviv. Only downside, the food is a little expensive and portions are not large.

Pros: Food, Ambiance

Cons: Portion size

Colorful and happy - Edit

The space is used very thoughtfully.
Service was perfect including the newest member of the staff. Food very good, but mostly not suitable for those who try to avoid gluten. I tried, unsuccessfully... Will definitely come back

awesöme georgian food - Edit

The Menu is awesome. So much to chose! It's georgian and all vegan. You should also try the cocktails! Loud music playing, so maybe not for anyone the best place for dinner.

Very good, but not "chef food" - Edit

I like the food there a lot, especially the desserts are absolutely amazing. The 3 layered chocolate dessert might be the best dessert I ever had. Nevertheless, the main dishes are really good but too expensive for what you get. The prices promise "chef" food and what you get is solid home food. Anyway, recommended to try.

Pros: Desserts, Amtmosphere

Cons: Prices

Amazing!! - Edit

We loved this place for the amazing food and selection, they have a lot to offer. We went with a group of people and then we all shared our meals it was a great way to experience many of the wonderful dishes. We loved everything and the chocolate dessert and halva cake we're really delicious. A great experience all around from the food to the place and staff.

Pros: amazing food, relaxed place and staff

Atmosphere and vegan food! - Edit

As soon as we walked in, I was excited to eat here. It has a vintage feel. We came for lunch. The menu ranged from 53-64 shekels. With each dish you get a bread, salad, and drink. My husband and I ordered 2 dishes (cutleti and khatchapoiri), and we were not able to finish everything. Both dishes were delicious. I would order than again, but it seems like there is a lot to try here. Outdoor and indoor seating. Seems like a fun place to come with a group and try more dishes.

original vegan mains and desserts - Edit

Lively atmosphere with eclectic decor and belly dancing. Highlights for us were some of the mains: the pilaf and the love balls were very well seasoned! Desserts were very nice too especially the parfait and the chocolate fingers. Appetizers were underwhelming.

Excellent food, a delight for vegans - Edit

There are really few truly vegan restaurants in Israel. I even had one question about this one, but since I didn't order that item, forgot to ask - one menu item has some kind of yogurt dressing, and if it is real yogurt, then it is the one non-vegan menu choice. So check, if you need. There are many vegetarian or vegetarian and fish restaurants in Israel, which typically are very big on eggs and cheese, and the fresh pasta also has eggs, so we came specifically to enjoy a vegan restaurant with a unique menu - Georgian cooking. Three of us dined, and we each chose a different "business meal", which you can have until 5pm. The business meal is definitely a good deal. The bread and salad served with these meals were excellent, and each of us enjoyed the main dish we chose (stuffed vegetables, stuffed round zucchini, and a spinach/tofu pastry), and each was served nicely with tasty additions. My stuffed zucchini had some pureed vegetables as a base, which were spiced very nicely. All the spices, in fact, were very tasty. We ordered a dessert (after all, we were celebrating a birthday), not included in the business meal, and that was a bit pricey. They were chocolate fingers (the choice of the guy with the b'day), and I thought they were on the "too sweet" side.
They could spiff up the rest room - not as clean as would be nice, and could use more lighting. Also, given the number of seats in the restaurant, a second one would be helpful The acoustics could be improved, as well, but otherwise, the atmosphere was pleasant, and the wait staff very helpful and pleasant.
I would like to see them offer whole grain options: whole grain bread, brown rice, etc. The bread, pastry dough, rice, etc. were all white flour, white rice.

Pros: Great food, reasonable business meal, helpful wait staff

Cons: rest room not great

Brok O. Lee 19 Mar 2015 - Hi,

The yogurt served at Nanuchka is vegan! It is a 100% vegan restaurant. And FYI, there are 17 all-vegan restaurants in Tel Aviv, and the number is growing. :)

Great vegan menu and nice decor. - Edit

Food was great. Staff was friendly and attentive. The stuffed grape leaves starter was to die for. We had the spinach and nut Hinkali and the Pirashki for main dishes...both excellent. The chocolate cake dessert was heaven. All good but I found the portions a bit small and the whole meal sort of pricey.

2 vegans + 2 meat eaters all loved it! - Edit

Our meat eating friends took us because we are vegan, and they used to love the restaurant before it turned vegan. They were willing to give it a try because they loved it when it was a meat restaurant, figuring that a good chef is a good chef. We ordered 3 appetizers, including the salad sampler plate (that is not what it's called, but I cannot find the menu on line right now). The sampler was good, but a bit standard. The two others were really delicious. (One was a pastry with different types of mushrooms.) We also ordered 3 mains, making sure that we chose dishes that would provide different eating experiences. We loved each dish!
One of our friends eats 'gluten free' and was quite happy with the range of options for him.
Since a few people mentioned service, I must add that our service was good enough. We went for a late lunch and the place was relatively quiet. The staff was friendly and attentive.
All in all, we look forward to going back!

Pros: Interesting, delicious vegan food, Nice range of gluten free options, Fun environment

The worst vegan dinner I had! - Edit

I was excited to try the new Nanuchka menu but was deeply disappointed. The dishes were not flavorful and the presentation was mediocre. The cooks clearly have no idea about balanced and healthy vegan and vegetarian meals. Just because you drop the meat Nanuchka it doesn't make it healthy. The service was poor and the waitstaff is not very knowledgeable. I don't understand what the hype is all about.
Save your money there are plenty of other options in Tel Aviv for better and healthier vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Pros: none

Cons: staff is not knowledgeable in vegan cook, poor service, flavorless meals with poor presentation

Amazing food - one of the best in town - Edit

I live in Tel Aviv, and I know there's no lack of good vegan food here. Still, I used to go to Nanuchka even before the place went vegan, as the few vegan dishes they had were unbelievable.
Now that the whole menu is vegan one could simply move in there. It's highly recommended to go in big groups if you can, just so you can take everything and get a taste of everything. It's a bit pricey, but a meal to remmember.

Pros: Amazing food, Great atmosphere , Fine wine

Cons: A bit costly

Memorable Culinary Experience - Edit

Go here for a delicious and memorable experience! The minute you enter, you're in a different world. There are several rooms with an eclectic decor and subdued lighting, also outdoor seating. You can have an intimate table for two or a party of 20, or anything in between. There is also a huge bar which fills up around 10 pm and keeps going until 5 am.

Whether you're vegan or not, you're in for a wonderful and delicious culinary experience. The menu offers authentic Georgian cuisine, and is 100% vegan. There is a terrific selection of starters, and you could even make a meal of a few of these. I especially recommend the platter of seven salads, the "Hinkaly" - savory dumplings stuffed with spinach and nuts, and the "Hachapory" soy cheese-stuffed pastry. All the dishes are excellent, expertly prepared, and unlike anything you've ever tasted! There are salads, breads, stuffed vegetables, stews, and more. And desserts! Try the "Hacht'halla" - it's walnuts coated with a dried grape pudding.

If you're travelling in Israel, definitely come to Tel Aviv to eat at Nanuchka!

Pros: Great food, Authentic Georgian cuisine, Wonderful ambience
