cheap and quick - Edit

Restaurant is cute and small. The food which you pick for wrap are fresh and mostly vegan. You can pick whatever you want also the souces are homemade, vegan and delicious. Overall it is very quick and inexpensive.

Pros: lots of vegan options , inexpensive

great food, need ability to heat it - Edit

This cute hole in the wall in Kadikoy is great for a quick, cheap wrap. The food was fresh and good, they had someone behind the counter who spoke English, and the wrap I got was huge. It and a drink were under 10 TL. The one con was that they should have an option to heat up the wrap, like a small toaster or oven.

Pros: great food, cheap

Cons: wish they had option to heat up food

Great spot for a quick meal - Edit

A great place to stop while exploring the eastern side of Istanbul. It's kind of a make your own Turkish burrito setup. Very tasty, super clean facility, and the staff were really nice. It's quite inexpensive as well. Most of the fillings are vegan, but the staff will gladly point out which ones aren't if you ask.

Pros: inexpensive, quick, tasty

mixture of everything good - Edit

their wrap is a mixture. you are free to choose almost anything vegan into your wrap from chickpeas to falafel. at the end, your stomach is full and your wallet weights almost same. plus it is located in an area which definitely needed one meatless place.

Pros: tasty and rich, very cheap, location appreciated

finally some choice! - Edit

After being in istanbul for a few days I didnt find any good food. Sdaly we went here just before we were going to the airport at 11am, it was so close to were we stayed too.
They have wraps and you can just point at what you want, a few things are not vegan (in the cooked section, some salads and some sauces) But there is a young woman who speaks English and will advise you. It was cheap and tasty.
Quite fresh and delicious.
I would of gone here every day if i knew it was so close. Definately worth a visit. (Its not the most amazing wraps but it can be hard to find good vegan food in istanbul so this was the best place i went to)

Super - Edit

Interesting little place, it looks like a chain at first since the branding and decoration is professional, but it's more of a quirky veg. wrap place with a lot of options.

Main item on offer is a wrap which you can order with your choice of fillings. The range is quite good and thankfully it's more than the usual boring salad - you can get chickpeas, cooked aubergine, spring onions, diced potatoes, hummus, tahini and other good stuff as well as the regulars of tomato and lettuce etc.

There is also icli kofte and lahmucun listed on the menu which are not vegetarian, however they are from an earlier menu and are not now being sold, so everything is vegetarian. There are some items with mayo etc. but most appear to be vegan.

The prices are incredibly cheap for what you get though, and in terms of getting a satisfying meal, it would be very difficult to make something yourself for less money. This is the best value veg. food I have found in Istanbul. The staff are also friendly and speak English.

The place wasn't very busy when we went there, and I only hope that they can do well enough given the Turkish predilection for meat. There are also some outside tables and the Kadikoy area is a nice one for walking around if you want to take a break from the other parts of Istanbul.

Note: Rulo is on the Asian side of Istanbul, you can get the ferry to Kadikoy from either Karakoy or Eminonu in 20 minutes and then easily walk there. The map location shown now is correct.


Pros: Cheap + Tasty, Nice staff and seating areas, Good selection of wrap fillings

Cons: No hot dishes as such

Delicious, friendly, and excellent value! - Edit

This cafe/snack bar is a delightful vegetarian place selling tortilla-style wraps with a range of delicious fillings. These include chickpeas, falafel, a lentil dish, three different kinds of aubergine dish, as well as the usual salad veg and herbs,and a variety of condiments, pepper and oils.

The owner/staff I spoke to was very friendly and helpful, speaking good English. She explained which fillings were vegan and though I like to think I would've guessed correctly if she hadn't been around.

The only difficulty I had was finding the cafe, which is on the Nailbey Sokak, but much further up than is shown on the map. The address was correct and passers-by pointed me in the right direction. I pointed this out to staff and maybe they will have corrected it before you come to visit. The meal was very cheap and very nice and filling, costing only 4 Turkish lira (about 2 Euros).

The Asian side of Istanbul is well worth a visit, or even a place to base your visit to Istanbul. It is 20 minutes by ferry, which costs about a Euro, to Sultanahmet (the heart of the old city) and yet it is free of all the touristy bustle that you have on the European side of the Bosphorus. Hotels are about half the price and the whole area is a much more genuine feel to it.

Pros: Hassle-free vegan food, Nice atmosphere, Friendly

Cons: Only sell wraps,, Not really a place for an evening meal, Not quite as shown on the map
