Fantastic Hungarian Food - Edit

I absolutely loved this restaurant and how it was traditional Hungarian Dishes but veganised. I recommend the whole menu and their daily menu is a fantastic offer!
Their platters are lovely and they are very healthy portions for the price. I have also tried their pizzas which are very delicious. I also loved how popular this restaurant is for being a vegan restaurant and you probably wouldn't know it is vegan. The food quality is fantastic and definitely an impressive restaurant to take non-vegans. Lots of space and the staff are very friendly and informative.

Pros: Incredible Menu and food, Traditional Hungarian Dishes, Huge portions!

Lecso - Edit

Big vegan restaurant, not ultra modern and hip, but nice even for some family gatherings. I orderes lecso with tempeh and fried steak potatoes. It was good, portion was big! :) I could not finish it but almost I did hah, really good for people with apetite. Food was more heavy, more oil, fake meats. I sish I had some space for šomló halušky after main course, but no way! :D
We have some problems with other dish, we ordered from daily menu but it was already gone but waitress didnt know, so we have to choose other dish and wait a bit. But it wasnt long waiting.

Great pizza - Edit

Unfortunately I only had time for a pizza and the saladbar on my way to Sziget festival but the pizza was one of the best vegan ones I ever had. More than enough cheese, which is always the key and a fair amount of veggies. Nice salad bar. Should go back soon try more.

Pros: Great setting, Good service, Nice price

great experience - Edit

We tried their lunch menu. It came quickly and was very good and creative. They don't offer the usual menu which is a very nice change from most other places. Come for a nice, cozy and unique experience.

Pros: good and non ordinary food, option of lunch menu

Large menu but not super healthy - Edit

As a lot of people have said, the menu has a lot of fake ‘meat’ and ‘cheese’ dishes and is pretty heavy and fried feeling.
Between us we had the bean goulash and the sharing platter. The goulash was yummy though a little salty. The platter was enooooormous - said it served two and could easily have served four. It was various different seitan and tofu cutlets, with cabbage, potatoes, chips, rice, salad and sauces. We barely even made a dent in it as it was never ending and a bit too fried for our tastes.
I probably wouldn’t eat here again as it’s not really my style of food but if you’re looking for some hearty stodge it’ll do!

Pros: Big menu, Good service

Cons: Very heavy food, Wasteful portions

The desserts looked amazing!

Pros: Much food, Central

Cons: The staff, Too much fried food

Perfect Experience - Edit

The pizza is quite big and filling and could actually fool meat eaters! The melted cheese that I ordered separately was heavenly! It's a wonderful place! But the portions were so big I couldn't even try the dessert, and there was quite a big variety.
Great value for money!

Favourite Vegan Spot in Budapest - Edit

Loved this place - the area is nice to walk around and it was easy to find. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. It is very comfortable and warm inside, quite large too! It was so difficult to choose what to order, everything sounded amazing and the prices were so reasonable. I went for a pizza, with vegan sausage, onion and peppers on it. The crust was super tasty, as was the cheese. My friend had the pesto pasta which she loved, it was a little creamy which was a nice surprise. They had the biggest selection of vegan desserts I have ever seen, again very difficult to choose!

Pros: Tasty comfort foodq, Friendly staff, Nice interior

Nice Eatery, With a Disappointing Twist - Edit

I took my close relative to Napfenyes Etterem because it looked really promising from their FB posts, visitor reviews and so on. And it did, to a certain extent, fulfill those high hopes and expectations. Straight when we came, we were astonished by how big the space is - it's a legit oldschool restaurant, with a modern twist. We were also looking at the pastries and also bustled around the restaurant for a while, looking for the ideal place to sit. From this you can already infer that the staff had plenty of time to notice us, we were more than just overt. Heh. Except they seemed not only not to have noticed us, they seemed to not see us at all for quite a while after we sat down. I'm talking like 20 minutes of us looking at each other (and at the restaurant staff) over an empty table, with various waiters strolling around our location - without bringing us the menu, or water, or at least asking us if we've already been served. Just so you know: the restaurant was nearly empty at the time, it was late afternoon. But since we're not from the impatient kind of people, we have decided not to just stand up and leave. After about 25 mins we have decided to ask one of the waiters which was cleaning the table next to us (about the third waiter doing a similar task) about the possibility of receiving the menu and drinks. It turned out they all thought we have already been served. So, a very unfortunate assumption. It also turned out they show a place to sit to almost every customer, and give them menu straight away. How could the 4+ waiters not have noticed us, as we were dashing back and forth confusedly, still eludes me. We were already conspiring about whether they hate us and not want us there, or whether we indeed have became invisible because other people attracted their attention constantly.
Anyway, this here is the reason why I'm giving the venue three stars instead of five that would be my obvious go-to choice if it was only about food (or if the service was as exceptional as the food indeed was). I chose Kolozswar Stuffed Cabbage, it was really splendid (but maybe it was my hunger speaking, also). Overall I recommend the restaurant, but I'll think twice before going there another time instead of some more "punk" vegan venue. Which Budapest seems to have plenty of.

Pros: The food we had was indeed incredible, Spacious

Cons: Staff behaved like we were air , Relatively ugly decorations

Amazing vegan restaurant in Budapest - Edit

During our stay we've been there three days in a row! Amazing, fancy, nice and clean restaurant with great vegan food. I've tried three meals and three cakes. The best vegan meal was Mediterranean Fusili which were cheesy but very very good and filling! I loved the strawberry cake (I almost had a food orgasm, not kidding!) and mille feuille (also a food orgasm, but smaller one) and I also tried triple chocolate cake which was very good as well. The meal I liked the least was Rice noodles with soy sauce and I didn't finish it beacuse the portion was too big and I didn't like it that much. We've also had Hawaii pizza which was very nice. Overall I think this place is great, cakes are amazing, food is very very good (there might be some exceptions of course) so during my 3-day stay in Budapest this place really kept me full and excited for the meal I was going to have. The last day we went there the staff was exceptionally nice and I didn't want to go home afterward. I can't wait to go there again!

Pros: nice staff, reasonable prices, cakes

Cons: no sweet main course in the menu

Great food/unfriendly staff - Edit

The food and cakes were amazing and also for a good price. Sadly the majority of the staff was not nice at all. One waiter in particular seemed to be ignoring us alltogether (we asked him for menu and nothing happened, then orderer a drink and nothing happened again for atleast 20minutes). To sum it up- one of the best cakes in Budapest, great food, but dont expect friendly waiters.

Delicious - Edit

I went to this restaurant 3 times during my recent stay in Budapest and loved every mouthful. There is a great range on the menu so there is something for everyone. Goulash soup was worth trying and the fried vegan cheese is incredible. The fried crepe dish is very yummy but filling. Had bites of pizza and risotto and they were very good. Salad bar was good at lunch in the city centre but the outer city restaurant salad bar was lacking when I went for dinner twice. Vegan vanilla ice cream a nice dessert.

Pros: great range, all vegan

Cons: some oily, heavier dishes but depends on selection
