Paradoxical - Edit

Hence the name.....the "star" of this Turkish franchise is 100% vegan and yet Nefista is not 100% vegan. The meatless kofteh can be made either by wrap or platter style. Packed with spices/seasonings, sauce and selections of veggies...this creates levels of flavor and as a meal, it is absolute fulfilling.

Its ok - Edit

The vegan wrap is pretty good, but that’s about it, they only have that as vegan, they sell yogurt, baklava (with honey), and they were not having shakes at the time we went there, so it’s a one thing menu

Pros: Wrap

Cons: No variety, Personel not vegetarian conscious

Delicious Food & Lovely People - Edit

The owner was so sweet & kind. He offered my sister & I tastes of his 3 kinds of Kofteh before we ordered. The food is fresh & tasted great. Definitely on my list of places to return to.

Needs more taste - Edit

First time coming here thanks to happy cow, I ordered the vegan Kofteh which the Kofteh itself is a nice mild spice but the rest of that they put veggies I don't know if maybe the server gave me it like that or if it's always like that but the veggies they gave me were limited and didn't have much flavor if I can make a suggestion they should add more flavors so it's not bland such as avocado etc

wow!! - Edit

I was not sure what I was in for when I came here with my gf. But I can tell you I was so happy to have found it! The wraps are fantastic and healthy. The pomegranate sauce that comes with it is like crack. A must for anyone in the area.

Pros: mostly vegan, pretty cheap

Cons: traffic prone drive

Delicious, inexpensive, and healthy - Edit

The kofteh is not like the Indian deep fried kofta balls (which was what I expected when I walked in). Instead of being deep-fried balls of mashed vegetables, it was a spread made of cold mashed vegetables, bulgur wheat, tomato paste, herbs, and spices. It was slightly spicy, wrapped in a thin lavash bread with fresh vegetables and lemon juice, and it was delicious.
When I first walked in, my family waited in the car because it was late at night and we weren't sure how much longer they would be open. The guy at the counter offered to give me free samples to bring to my family, which I did!
Aside from the baklava and yogurt drinks, the menu is vegan, although it's a very limited menu. The kofteh comes in a wrap sandwich or 2 different sized platters.
There are 4 tables, so you can eat there. I just wish they didn't serve the food on styrofoam.

Pros: delicious, healthy, open late

Cons: limited menu, no hot food
