Traditional dishes made vegan - Edit

A lovely place with friendly staff. We went here as part of a vegan food tour with Taste Hungary, so we were already full before we arrived. We tried some traditional foods - goulash soup, cabbage rolls, and some kind of millet balls for dessert. All were delicious. Checked out the extensive menu, and next time we're going back hungry! It was mid-week lunchtime, so fairly quiet, but I'm told it's packed out at weekends, so you probably need to book. There's also a cafe at the front where you can choose from a large range of cakes.

Pros: Vegan versions of traditional dishes, Calm and friendly atmosphere

The best vegan restaurant ever! - Edit

I've tried a lot of vegan places and this was simply the best, the food is incredible, and surprinsingly cheap, specially at lunch, they have a special menu with smaller prices. I went to this place 2 times during 3 days in Budapest, I wish I could go more. They also have desserts and ice cream, which is very good too.

Pros: Delicious food, Many desserts, Price

Cons: Nope

Super à Pest - Edit

Ce petit resto est absolument génial, j'adore. C'était super bon (mais pas pour les pizzas). Il est situé un peu à l'écart mais ça vaut le coup. Pâtisseries vraiment appétissantes.

Pros: Qualité de nourriture, Choix, Bonne atmosphère

Napfenyes uses vegetable ingredients (without any meat, eggs or dairy products) and cooks as healthy as possible. The majority of ingredients are organic and they avoid using any preservatives, additives or coloring agents. All dishes are made with purified water.

Woderful decadent experience - Edit

This place came highly recommended and it’s easy to see why. The place is underground with a brick vaulted ceiling and seating in booths. It actually feels rather fancy with the table linens and staff in their whites. We went to the smaller branch with the shorter menu but the list off choices was still vast. Specifically I had a hankering for pizza so that is what we both went for. I choose the Popeye pizza with extra arugula and Nathanael had the three cheese. And yes it was all vegan! Mine was without a tomato base and it had garlic, cheese, nutmeg and the fresh greens on top. It was delicious but very rich and I think I would have preferred one with a tart tomato sauce. Nates was really good, he got faux sausage on top which was well spiced and very meaty. Not something I had tried before. For someone feeling the loss of meat in their life it would make a good substitute. They were huge portions and I only managed half of mind so for sure you could share one with perhaps a salad from the self-serve bar, which looked great. We were so full that we had our desserts to go. I could not leave without one as their selection was incredible. Very decedent creamcake style creations with layers of different fillings and pastries. I had a raspberry concoction, which was a poppyseed cake topped with a creamy whipped raspberry layer. Nate went for a biscuit thing with jam in the middle covered in white chocolate with beautiful piped decoration. This place was a real gem with options for everyone including Hungarian goulash, seitan roast and pasta dishes. I would be interested to visit the larger premises which was advertised as having live music at the weekends and is perhaps better located for those staying more centrally........ please visit my blog for more vegan reviews......www.whitedragonorganics.com

The pizzas are great - Hungarian is the best.The raw food platter was crisp and appetising. The seitan kievs were flavoursome and 'meaty'The vanilla slice was the nicest vegan pastry I ever had (English vanilla slice was always my favourite as a non vegan)They even got me the recipe when I asked!Snickers cake also very nice.Large cosy dining areas with outdoor tables too Huge choice of dishes - menu is a book of ten pages! See video review on Vegan on Wheels channel. https://youtu.be/yDA9ENX-270

Hungarian food vegan style - Edit

Delicious platter for two... fried fried and more fried but awesome! Goulash soup was delicious... staff and surroundings lovely, the one down side was the lack of alcoholic beverage, beer would have accompanied our food to perfection.

Best restaurant I've ever been - Edit

You should come and taste their food whenever you visit Budapest. I was there with my gf during a city trip and I visited the venue 4 times in a week so that we could taste as much dishes as possible. Great taste and a lot to chose!

Pros: Taste, Diversity, Friendly people

Cons: Time before they come to your table.

exquisite! - Edit

Best restaurant I've ever been to. Their vegan pizzas are the best I have ever had - the rest of their mains are equally tasty and amazing. Their desserts are also beautiful - everything seems to have some twist. If in Budapest you are missing out if you do not visit this restaurant! Atmosphere is locket and calm and the staff and very nice and polite!

Leider unter meiner Erwartung! - Edit

Die Location ist gut, keine Frage. Die Bedienung war auch nett. Aber, ich habe eine Pizza bestellt. Das war wohl ein Fehler. Der Boden war steinhart, es war wenig Tomatensauce und wenig Zwiebel drauf. Gebratener (trockener) Räuchertofu und falscher Käse dafür um so mehr. Leider hat mir das überhaupt nicht geschmeckt. Die Frage ob es nun an mir oder am Essen lag, ließ sich anhand der anderen Pizzen, die zurück gegangen sind, eindeutig klären. Ich bin enttäuscht...

Lovely place - Edit

Restaurant is in the cellar and really cute and cozy. Service was nice and their English was quite ok. Took some foods from daily menu and the dumpling soup was really tasty, also sushi and all in all options on the daily menu were interesting and really variable. We also took a pizza, which was a mild disappointment though, since it was a bit dry, or not "juicy" enough. Anyway, a really good place and gotta check their other location too!

Pros: Good daily menu, Nice service, Cozy place

good food but slow service - Edit

I enjoyed the food and ambience at napfenyes (this was my second visit - I also went last year while in Budapest) but the service is pretty bad. It took ages for the waiter to even realise we were there (we were seated by a different person) and then we were promptly forgotten about for the rest of the meal. It's a shame because the food was good. The salad bar was a good light lung option

Pros: good food, large selection

Cons: slow and rude service

Was pleasantly surprised by this place! So far my favorite vegan spot in Budapest. The pizza was amazing, and the dish I had with French fries, seitan and ratatouille was also delicious. The staff was very nice and also helpful! They drew is a map to the vegan festival :) will definitely be visiting here again before we leave.

Very good pizza - Edit

If you want good vegan pizza: go here. I had the coal worker pizza (a very 'meaty' pizza), and it tasted very good, If you like fake meat, this is the pizza. Also the desert was tasty.

No alcohol.

Excellent food and nice ambience - Edit

It was nice having so many vegetarian options and we ended up ordering a platter for two to be able to try out a bunch of different things. We were stuffed by the end and the food was all great. The place was also cute and nicely decorated.

However, service was slow and it took forever before we were able to order and the drinks pricing made no sense to us. The menu lists prices by milliliters for all the drinks rather than by glass which was not clear until we got the bill. Not sure what the point of that is for something like a glass of lemonade...
