First Review by gmfielden

desert delights! - Edit

We only had desert here, although they have a quite a selection for starters and mains.

They don't use chocolate, instead they use carob. I am personally not a Carob fan, however my wife is and she loved the deserts.

Good service... next time will try mains.

Pros: good service, healthy (even the deserts)

Traditional dishes - Edit

A lovely atmosphere - whilst we were there they had some fantastic live music.
If you are after trying some veganised local cuisine, this is the place! The food is delicious and the staff are attentive.

Vegan Hungarian food, but heavy on the fake meat and cheese - Edit

This is the largest and nicest sit-down vegan restaurant in Budapest and we have eaten here several times. It's centrally located to the Vaci utca shopping precinct. However, most items on the menu are fried and/or include fake meat, sausage and cheese. I think that Hungarian food is very meat-centric and they're responding to demand for vegan versions. There is a daily specials menu which contains some whole-foods items. The goulash soup is thick, spicy and excellent. We also tried French Onion soup, which was tasty, but not traditional, with a creamy broth and croutons. The Napfenyes Platter is a huge plate of various fried items, like seitan Kiev, fried cheese and falafel. My husband and I couldn't finish it- too much oil for us. However, I have to admit that their fried cheese is gooey and tasty and we have eaten it again. The salad bar is a bit underwhelming. It's been hit and miss with their baked goods. When you enter the restaurant, you're greeted by a large display case full of vegan cakes and other baked goods. They all look amazing, but when we've tried them, several didn't have much flavor except for sweet. Prices here are very reasonable for the large portion sizes.

Pros: Large, nicely decorated restaurant, Wide variety of cakes and baked goods, Extensive, inexpensive menu

Cons: Hard to avoid fried dishes and fake meat

very fatty.. - Edit

if you love very fatty and fried food it will be good for you. for me it was horrible. I thought I'm eating just a bunch of oil.
the staff had maybe a bad day but he was very unfriendly. seemed to be unhappy to work at this day. (can happen, but we just wanted to go away again)
We had the grill platter and I found it a bit expensive for what you get in common to the other dishes we saw.
It was also written on the menu that you could get half portions but on this day it wasn't possible.
too bad, we just read good things about it but had bad luck.

Try the mille feuille... - Edit

I visited Napfenyes today and the whole experience was amazing. I had the vegetable sticks with thousand island dressing and pitta bread to start and the traditional Hungarian stuffed cabbage leaf for my main. The people on the table next to me had the pizza and I did get slight food envy, it looked and smelled great. Before I left I had to buy some of their cakes to take away with me, the mille feuille was out of this world, if like me you loved this before you were vegan and haven't managed to try a vegan version this will not disappoint. I also tried the poppyseed and raspberry cake which was also very delicious. The food was tasty and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I can't wait for my next trip to Budapest.

Pros: Friendly staff, Tasty food, Mille feuille

It was okay, I guess - Edit

I went here with my husband (vegan) and my mother (omni). We ordered pretty much everything off the menu, because people had given such amazing reviews.

The food was okay, but not amazing. We had grilled root veggies and dip for starters, caesar salad, mediterranean pasta and a napfenyes platter for mains and some homemade ice cream for dessert. Homemade lemonade for drinks. Everything cost us about 10 000 Ft (35 €), so it was on the cheap side on European standards.

The pasta and caesar salad were amazing, tho they really put a lot of cheese on everything. The napfenyes platter was REALLY heavy with fat and carbs - phew. We couldn't finish it. I guess it's okay if you like that kind of stuff. The homemade lemonade (rose water flavour) was tasty, yet super sweet. Their ice cream was good, but I'd really hope they would serve it from real waffle cones (and not the one that tastes like cardboard.

All in all we were happy with the place, but not blown away like most of the reviews I read.

Pros: amazing caesar salad!, everything is vegan, tasty ice cream and loads of desserts

Cons: Don't get the Napfenyes platter - it's not good

BEST vegan restaurant we found in Budapest! - Edit

So good we went back twice!

Napfenyes offers a huge variety on their fully vegan menu. Including soups, fresh salad bowls, platters to share, hungarian mains, pizzas with vegan cheese and lots of desserts and pastries.. it really is great if you want some choice!

We tried all the soups and although all tasty the french onion soup is to die for!

If your looking for a great vegan pizza with faux meats you wont get better ( i havent anyway and tried hundreds)

We took a non vegan friend here and he loved his soup starter and seitan goulash!

Very well priced. On the cheap side even for Budapest.

A negative for some is they dont serve alcohol as alot of vegan places choose not to - not a problem for us as the fresh juices are great.

Pros: Food quality, Menu variety, Great value

Cons: Doesnt serve alcohol

The three cheeses pizza killed us. It was creamy and crunchy and just amazing junk food... And to just kill us more we ordered the cream cake and went mad ! Omg the best desert in town! Chocolate cake was ok but not spectacular. We were washing it down with rose water lemonade .... wonderful food... highly recommend!

Pros: cheese , great pizza, great cream cake

Indulgent goodness - Edit

After a long day of walking around Budapest, we stopped at Napfenyes for a (very) late lunch. We ordered the platter for two along with several juices.

The platter was fantastic. If you're like me and you like to try a little of everything, this is the perfect meal for you. They give you pretty much every item from their menu, including highlights like fried cheese, tofu, seitan steak, and falafel all on one giant dish. It really hit the spot after hours of walking in the heat.

Pros: Hungarian dishes veganized, Hearty, Filling

order the vegan pizza! - Edit

My girlfriend and I came here looking for a vegan pizza and it was amazing! They have pizzas for all tastes. They essentially have a 'meat' feast pizza and they have a melted vegan cheddar and mozzarella which was fantastic. If pizzas aren't you're thing, the menu looked huge so I'm sure there's something for everyone!

Ok food - Edit

The food was really good, but the portions were massive. And unfortunately, although they preach a healthy diet, most of the food was fried, and very fatty. It tasted nice but I couldn't eat much of it, and I wasn't able to finish my leftovers either. But it's pretty decent vegan food, their seitan is amazing
